In Defense of Melania Trump!
NYTimes Op Ed [2/7/17] Faults her for Being a Successful Business Woman!
Both Ivanka and Melania Trump are in the unfortunate position of being crucified by both major businesses and the NY Times for being successful business women. In particular, I want to address the case of Melania Trump. Her malfeasance according to the NYTimes Op Ed [2/7/17] involves:
“..her assessment of the damage the claim [that she had worked as an ‘escort’] has done to her earning potential is galling, and revelatory.”
WOW! WTH does that mean???
Let me understand what the Op Ed really says is that it is ‘ok’ to suggest that someone might have been an ‘escort’ or ‘prostitute’. However, the fact that the false claim should have had no monetary, financial, or emotional bearing to a former model cum business woman who happens to the POTUS’s wife is both patently absurd and unworthy of the once-prestigious NY Times.
Memo to dying NYT: None of the citizenry who elected Trump and his family to the WH care anything about his personal income taxes. Furthermore, we citizens understand all too well that the Trump business involves the franchise of the Trump name. If he were a Marriott, the same issue would remain for those of us who voted for him.The business of Trump’s business is the dissemination of his name as a brand which may or may not increase sales of condo units or hotel rooms.
Similarly, Melania Trump has a business which entails her name as well as her personae as a former model, businesswoman, and a well-known person. Do we really care that Melania is making money on the fact that she is quite stunning and intelligent?
The most relevant part of the Trump narrative does not involve any of his children,wives [past and present], nor his personal habits [whether he watches cable or TV] rather it revolves around one simple factor: CHANGE!
Trump was voted into power by those who want to change an antiquated, corrupt system where politicians like the Clintons, Bush family, and the Obama entourage seriously damaged our country’s overall welfare, both domestically and abroad. Such non-business politicos became millionaires, if not billionaires, at the expense of the American people.
How could the Clintons earn $1.8 billion USD in the corrupt Clinton Foundation? How could the Obamas afford several seven figure houses located across the USA when his salary was only in the six figures? Did the NYTimes ever delve into the miscreant activity of the aforementioned occupants of the White House?
I think not!
While the left wing media is busy attacking Donald for his perceived ‘xenophobia’, how is it that he married two beautiful women from Eastern Europe? Does the NYTimes consider Eastern Europe as part of a jingoistic narrative?
I think not!
How do you explain the simple fact that Donald does not drink alcohol nor take drugs? In contrast, Bill was a sex/drug addict. Bush Jr was a cocaine addict. Hillary was a compulsive liar and sexual predator. Obama was both a homosexual and a drug addict. Where is the so-called ‘fairness’ factor in NYT reporting?
I do not know Mrs. Melania Trump. However, I would grant her all the proper courtesy which is bestowed upon a First Lady:
- Who happens to speak five foreign languages.
- Who happens to be the most stunning beauty we have been fortunate to have in the White House.
The NY Times clearly follows the precepts of the famous American satirist, H.L. Mencken:
“The theory seems to be that as long as man is a failure he is one of God’s children, but that as soon as he/she succeeds he/she is taken over by the Devil.”
