Melania is the only person who can disagree with Trump 'without facing repercussions', claims author
The first lady has admitted in the past that she has never shied away from giving her own opinion to her husband saying, 'I tell him what I think'
Although speculations have been rife that First Lady Melania is the weakest link at the White House, but as it turns out, she is the most important person in President Donald Trump's orbit.
The mother-of-one became the target of many anti-Trump protesters even before her husband became the leader of the free world, with haters attacking her professional background as a former model to passing scathing remarks on her age difference with the POTUS. But Melania has managed to smilingly shrug off all the attacks, online and otherwise, because she is aware of the position she holds in her husband's life.
Despite the fact that Melania is not involved in the political policies that the Trump administration undertakes, unlike some of his other family members such as daughter Ivanka Trump and son-in-law Jared Kushner, the first lady is reportedly the most "free" person in Trump's immediate circle.
“And I think -- my sort of thesis is that she is actually the most free of those people in the Trump orbit. She's able to do and say and sort of openly have a discourse and disagree with the president without facing the repercussion that we've seen him have against other staffers -- other members of his administration,” CNN reporter Kate Bennett, who wrote an unauthorized biography called 'Free Melania,' said in an interview in Dec. 2019.
Melania herself has admitted in the past that she has never shied away from giving her own opinion to her husband, regardless of whether she agreed or disagreed with him on certain matters. "I tell him my opinions. I tell him what I think. Sometimes he listens, sometimes he don't," she famously said in a CNN interview in 2016.
She was recently slammed in a Political Flare op-ed written by Andrea Jefferson which was scandalously titled, "Trump Supporters Appear to Think a Porn Star is ‘More Classy’ Than a Two-Time Ivy League Graduate."
According to Jefferson, Melania did not deserve to be named the “Woman of Distinction” by Palm Beach University, a small Florida Christian college. "First lady Melania Trump was named a 'Woman of Distinction' by Palm Beach University, a small Florida Christian college. Melania Trump is a former model, who also did softcore porn, and is now married to a man old enough to be her father. She’s also a college dropout. I can’t think of anything notable she’s done in her life or as first lady," she wrote.
Compared to her, Jefferson touted former first lady Michelle Obama for her achievements, which according to her, were praise-worthy. “Obama was an Ivy League graduate, had a picture-perfect wife and two kids, no divorce, no out of wedlock children and even then white people still hated him for daring to ascend to the highest office in the land,” the piece said.
