Melania fans fume over her absence from fashion magazine covers: 'They can't stand she's so beautiful'
While Melania has not appeared on any magazine cover in her four years as FLOTUS, Michelle Obama featured on 12 during her eight years in the Oval Office
A conservative commentator has slammed liberal bias in the media and questioned how First Lady Melania Trump has never made it to the cover of any of the fashion magazines despite being "the most stunning First Lady in American history."
Melania had mesmerized her 13 million something Twitter followers after posting a series of throwback pictures from the 2018 Governors' Ball.
In one of the pictures, she wore a form-fitting black gown with a dramatic slit up the front and completed her look with black heels and loose hair, while in others, she was seen donning a floor-length black lace gown and a white button-up collared top and black pants combo.
Thousands complimented her, including actor James Woods, who has been a vocal supporter of both her and Donald Trump. Woods slammed the lack of attention she was getting from fashion magazines. "If you need any further proof of the shameless bias of the liberal mainstream media, the most stunning First Lady in American history has never graced our nation’s major style magazine covers...," he tweeted.
Many in the comment section seemed to agree with that stance. "It is quite amazing how much the left in general claims to be pro-woman and pro-minority, right up until the point when the woman or minority turns out to be Christian or conservative," one user wrote. "This is what happens when your ideology revolves around the gender or skin color of a person."
"You’re exactly right. They can’t stand that she’s so beautiful and conservative," a second user posted. "And because of that I no longer purchase magazines or designer clothing," another tweeted. "It’s despicable the way they snub her, they are exposing themselves as the globalist arm of propaganda they are. Mrs Trump is stunning and seems so graceful and kind."
Woods may have a point. Melania has not appeared on any magazine covers in her four years as the First Lady, while in comparison, Michelle Obama featured on 12 magazine covers during her eight years in the Oval Office.
Melania did feature on the cover of Vanity Fair and Vogue before she became FLOTUS, however, though it is unlikely she will ever do so again, at least in the case of the latter. Vogue's editor-in-chief Anna Wintour told CNN in an interview that the magazine was "taking a stand" when it came to politics. "I don't think it's a moment not to take a stand… I believe, as I think those of us who work at Condé Nast believe, that you have to stand up for what you believe in and you have to take a point of view," she said.
She also explained why so many of the political figures they profiled were Democrats. "I think it's very, very important to have a point of view, and we profile women in the magazine that we believe in ... After the defeat of Secretary Clinton in 2016 (in particular), we believe that women should have a leadership position and we intend to support them."
