Who is the ‘Real’ Melania Trump? Who Knows. | NYT News


Melania Trump. Is she trapped?
A reluctant first lady? Or is she poised, polished, and a quiet, but supportive
first lady? Who is the real Melania? Very few, at least among those who are speaking publicly,
will say. “I’m very strong.
People they don’t really know me. People think
and talk about me like, ‘Oh Melania. Oh poor Melania.’ Don’t feel sorry for me. Don’t feel sorry for me. I can handle everything.” But as Donald Trump’s
presidency has progressed, the first lady has become
a versatile avatar. Her image split sharply
down political lines. In one version of the
public imagination Melania is unhappy. She dislikes her husband and
disagrees with his policies. She may even be
mulling a divorce. This Melania has shown
up on late night T.V. and in tabloids. “Your beautiful, dutifully Melania. I can’t take it anymore.” Then there’s the other
version of Melania, painted by conservative
media as confident, fashion forward, graceful
and adored. “I have been so impressed
with, not just her quiet dignity, as you brought up, but also just this
diplomatic use of fashion. This version is closer to the
official portrayal of Melania. Through her spokespeople, the first lady says she is
supportive of her husband and focused on raising
their son, Barron. “I support my
husband 100 percent. But we have a 9-year-old son together,
Barron. And I’m raising him.” She says she prefers to take
a back seat to her husband, to keep his place
in the limelight. It’s not the first time Melania’s been in the public eye. “You spin, baby, you spin.” She’s a former model. And jewelry designer. “I love when idea comes to life. And I study
architecture and design and it’s something
very creative for me.” “I’m very passionate
about what I design, and there are some beautiful
pieces.” When they got together
in the late 1990s, the Trumps say
their chemistry was instant. “We were both at
the same party and that’s how we met.
He came to me…” “Like her right away?” “I went crazy.” Melania and Donald
became synonymous with the New York social scene. “They’ve stood did together
for a number of years now. New Yorkers have
come to know them as a very solid couple. And in 2005, they married. “Hi, fans. I’m going to
Metropolitan gala.” In the following years, Melania’s social media posts
focused on fashion, travel, fitness, and spending
time with family. Now as the first lady,
next to one of the most outspoken presidents
in recent history, Melania’s silence has
taken on a life of it’s own. “The most important
thing is just to be you. That’s the end.”

  • More antiAmerican leftist MUDSLINGING MEAN SPIRITED HATE. leftist ideology is Eastern European not American. We won't buy it!

  • A bunch of real bad comments I see !!!
    Many jealous people
    And you people are all so perfect ? GO AHEAD WHO IS SO PERFECT ! CAST THE FIRST STONE !!
    SHE IS A FABULOUS WOMAN ❤️

  • Gerard Guitarist says:

    She came to America with a dream. To be a successful, independent woman. She could have chosen any man she desired. She dated POTUSDJT for over five years before she insisted they marry or end it. How can anyone question her intuition or motives? She knows exactly who she is with and she has arguably the most coveted position for a woman on the whole planet being the First Lady of the USA. So all the naysayers can just go take a nap. She is not some wallflower. She is a powerful, smart woman of purpose. Deal with it.

  • pathetic leftist trash are in a perpetual cesspool of 'confusion' not because melania cant be characterized through corrupt clinton catastrophe crew 'concerns', but simply since their soiled service saga election rigging russian boogeyman fiascos were no longer endorsed by the globally humiliated dnc 'authority'. now their 'reporting' is literal snl skit tabloid trash trump derangement syndrome tantrums. granted, even more 'confused' about why their pitiful leftist guilt projection games victim oppressor propaganda and sad intern impeachment outrage agendas just wont 'impress' or 'intimidate'. lol.

  • Ahad Chowdhury says:

    Who cares? That hoe got more than what she deserved. Drumpf became president and suddenly people started caring about her.

  • We don’t feel sorry for you. She made the disgusting choice to sell her body and soul to a hideous man for $$$ And is the epitome of a gold digger.

  • B.S. she backs up everything her king wants! ( No matter how much it hurts people!) She's just as bad if not worse because she is complacent.

  • Sooooo…how is Ali Watkins doing in her new striped jail suit? L O L. My god you guys at the "times". ROFL. One word, "pathetic"!

  • ALways remember. She supported him when he was spouting his birther hate. Always remember. She was a model… a person who is paid to be someone she is not. That's what models do for a living. She's a person who appears to be someone she is not and she does it well.

  • Sevlija Blazevic says:

    THAT'S THE AND – DONT TRY SOMETHING YOU KNOW IS NOT YOUR DEAL – YOU JUST LOOK STUPID , MELANA ! BEE BEST , YOU ALMOST CRY THAT MUCH YOU ARE NOT PART OF YOUR OWN CREATION, YOUR OWN IDEA !

  • Chelsea Johnson says:

    I admire her. She’s banging a gross old man for a fortune and luxurious lifestyle. I could never do that but I wish I had her strength

  • Callum Gillman says:

    In Slovakia and many Eastern Block countries, it's expected that a husband 'may' have a mistress especially when wealthy… However she's a well educated and wonderful woman who was fooled by trump as much as the rest of us…. Shame she's being dragged down by such a 'Drumph'…..

  • Ashik Jonathan says:

    NYT has no worthy news to report? creating their own speculation. Naive and childish. Whining right from his win

  • She married Trump strictly for the money and lifestyle. She probably thinks another 10 years or so to endure and then she will inherit his wealth. Until then, she is making the best of it.
    Trump may have charmed her in the beginning, but that has worn off a long time ago and now she is playing her role, just as on the catwalk.

  • Melania is both the versions you describe, and that is the magic of her. Probably unhappy, probably wants a divorce, definitely capable, competent and adored. I commend her ambition and the strong maternal drive to protect her son. The divorce will happen when the term is over.

  • Ernestine Anderson says:

    MELANIA TRUMP IS A FOREIGN COURTESAN BOUGHT BY DONNIE AT A NYC AUCTION FOR LOSER MALES THAT CAN'T GET DECENT ALIST LADIES, THESE LOSERS PRENUP THESE BROADS UP, BUY THEM CITIZENSHIP BUT MELANIA HAD AN ANCHOR BABY IN CASE DONNIE WENT BACK TO THE AUCTION. SO MELANIA IS FAUX FIRST COURTESAN OF THE USA LIKE HER HUSBAND IS PUTINS PRESIDENT VIA SNOWDEN AND THE OTHER RUSSISN AND USA HACKERS LIKE FUNNY LOOKING ZUCKERBERG AND THE OTHER TREASON, ESPIONAGE,MONEYLAUNDERING COMMITTING MOFOS, MY WISH IS THAT THEY ALL ARE ELECTROCUTED FOR GIVING PUTIN THE USA'S ARCH ENEMY INFORMATION TO DESTROY OUR BELOVED COUNTRY.

  • A First lady who cannot speak english married to a man who hates immigrants! The world makes a lot of sense these days…

  • Hey Americans, why is the role of the First Lady of any importance in your culture? Because we don't care at all about the wife or husband of our elected leader and you hardly ever see them in the news anyway. While I know that you can find surprisingly many news articles about Melania Trump, I don't really understand why. And why's she treated in the news (left and right) as if she's some kind of oracle whose behaviour might be a good or a bad omen for your country's future? I think that there's some basic concept in place that I simply don't get, but you think is completely natural.

  • MELANIA IS HERSELF SHE IS TRUMP S WIFE IF SHE DID NOT LOVE HIM SHE WOULD NOT BE WITN HIM HE IS A MAN SHE IS A WOMAN no news there cnn

  • If the public can’t figure out what she stands for, then she’s a useless First Lady. She is not a private person by virtue of being married to the president, who is a public figure. A public figure must be as transparent as possible.

  • Loreen Mello says:

    GREETINGS: M.T. C😒LD 🖤 SHOWS NO L🖤VE 2 HER INFAMOUS PRESIDENTIAL "cheating" HUBBY !? [djt U GET WHAT U PAY 4! ] 1K 11 : 33 ESTHER 1 : 17 – 22. PSA 12 ! PROPHETESS BABASSU 🌴

  • gce2308 Elwood says:

    "Her diplomatic use of fashion." LOL. Do you mean the "I really don't care. Do u?" jacket? Yeah. Real diplomatic. I used to think of Melania as just being a vacuous nothing; an ex-nude model who had sold her ‘soul’ to a rich, bombastic, narcissistic, lying tool who cheated his way through life and had become potus through an illegal election thanks to russian interference. Now, after her birtherism, PLUS that jacket she wore and her loud and clear message to the world, I KNOW her to be the same racist POS as her swine of a husband.

  • raymond caruso says:

    Such a welcome change from the embarrassing garbage that was a complete insult to our country. Melania , a beautiful, elegant, and classy first lady. A First lady to be proud of.

  • She has defended her husband multiple times. She defended him when he was calling other women pigs and dogs. She supported his birther crisis nonsense against Obama. She cost the tax payers 1.5 million a day to stay in comfort in NYC. She wore a horrible jacket to visit immigrant children. Who her and Ivanka have both forgotten about. She is not a victim of anything but her own choices.

  • First fuckable FLOTUS we've had in a while.. with real life nudes on the internet, best first lady ever lol apparently Baron's a computer genius, you know he's already stumbled across them .. poor kid

  • Latrice Cardwell says:

    We know she’s not to bright , we know she’s liar , we know she was messing with Trump while he was married to Marla his 2nd wife n

  • what..? shes an / X -escort /Model , for a few and powerful men. she's a shift shifting professional power broker–she no pawn.

  • Lol how funny. Here’s an idea let’s watch football players relationship with wives and girlfriends. That should tell you enough on how partnerships work 😉

  • she's involved with the Russians the Russians have green houses they make the best cocaine best heroin and it's all coming through Alaska the shortest route thank you sir. I'm trying for making drugs 70% cheaper on the streets

  • Leslie McCormick says:

    Really NYT? She is married to the man she loves! You can't handle the truth! You don't want the truth, that's why newspapers will become obsolete! America is waking up and calling out the hateful media!

  • I like Melania and I think that she really loves Trump. I don't think she married him for his money because I think she had plenty of opportunity to marry into wealth. I think she is very beautiful and classy!!

  • Melania didn’t tell Black College graduates to BEWARE OF WHITE PEOPLE. Big Mike did!
    Melania didn’t constantly trash and disrespect our White House. Big Mike did!
    We have a lovely First Lady that does her job and makes us proud, why do liberals constantly trash her?
    If all immigrants were like Melania, we would need walls, we would need more RED CARPETS!
    Trump 2020 100% My Trump Banners are ready to fly! GlennFHoward
