Melania Trump is secretly miserable as first lady, a new report claims. Private, self-conscious, and smarting from some harsh, even mocking press, Melania is “struggling with the realities of her new role and the scrutiny that comes with it,” US Weekly says in its Feb. 27 cover story, citing family sources. “This life wasn’t her dream. It was Donald’s,” a Trump family friend, stylist Phillip Bloch, told the magazine. “Truthfully, it’s a lot to cope with.” Since Inauguration Day, Melania has spent almost all her time hiding inside the “gilded cage” of the family’s lavish, $100 million Trump Tower penthouse
Actually, I think the story could be true. We need to think of ways to support her and make her life more bearable. She needs to be able to go out and make friends, to take care of her son, to feel comfortable, to keep her from the foulness of the rabid left. We, the people, need to find ways to help her.
I think #6 is right and I would not blame anyone for being miserable in that job.
As for how we could help-- wasn´t Bess Truman shy, too? Maybe there´s a book about how she coped--and/or other books about how shy people cope with public lives.
Someone here suggested praying for Tiffany and her social rejection. Maybe it isn´t a bad idea to pray for Melania even more.
Someone could also research voice.coaches who deal with accents and write to her a tactful letter explaining that they live her accent and would not change it for the world but understand she is concerned about it and give her the reference, although seems like they would already have thought of that one.
We could flood her with encouraging/kind/friendly cards and letters.
I don´t now if this story is true, but what is absolutely true is that the hateful, vicious, vindictive Left Liberal Demonrats and the Demonrat controlled media are out to destroy every member of the Trump family and administration.
By the way, why isn´t the Mooch, "life is hell" in the White House, available to help her. The saintly O. family is always willing to tell anyone who will listen how caring they are.

Nobody in the Democrat press knows anything about Melania Trump. She is a very private person. She´s extremely hard to read, given the professional training as a stone faced model. I sense she is terrified of the violence practiced by Democrats and their legions of orcs. I wouldn´t blame her if she never moved to the White House.
with the Netanyahu visit she looked happy, gracious and was all smiles. if she is unhappy it didn´t show. i am sure a period of adjustment is in order - and expect her still to put her son at the top of her priorities. unfortunately her husband is probably never available to her - and that has to be difficult.
Harken back to anyone who said a word about Michelle Obama they were immediately identified as "racist" while the press went to the extent to complimenting her one have the perfect Black Womans butt as part of her beauty along with her perfectly beautiful masculine toned arms.
I am having more misery than the first lady just viewing the hypocrisy of the left, from the lowbrow comments by people to the stupidity of some of the liberal Press.
I am dismayed and angered that the press that fell all over itself over Michelle and the girls would go to such lengths to disparage the women in the Trump family. What disgusting hypocrisy. The so called "Women´s Party" has turned into mud slinging bullies.

I don´t know how much of this is true, all I know is that Melania Trump is a beautiful woman who is unfairly treated by the jackals of the press. There are those of us who think she is lovely, gracious and a good woman.
The tabloids will be busy bees during the next four years because the Trumps don’t fit neatly into any of their molds. They live THEIR lives. He was hired to do a job. He is doing it. She has her job. She is doing it. Both are doing their jobs well, as they have in the past.
In cities and towns across the country couples are apart for much of the time because of the husband’s business. They manage. They just don’t have to deal with nuisance nosy busybodies poking around in their lives.
The media will just have to adjust and stop being rude.
#9, my favorite story about Bess Truman has to do with a train trip Harry Truman took during his presidency. When he returned from a long trip, Bess was quite happy to see him. And the morning after he returned, she sheepishly called the white house maintenance people with a request to fix their bed - it had a broken slat.
I would imagine that neither of them anticipated the kind of blatant abuse that´s being directed toward them from all directions, and especially from former friends. Who wouldn´t struggle with that? That has got to be tough to endure.
But, I´m sure it´s a matter of degree -- I don´t think it is the life she expected.
The media characterizes her as miserable. She is a target to them, not a person.
If true the hate-filled left will trumpet their triumph unlike they received and built up Michelle, country hater until the money and acceptance started poring in Michelle?
Should be ashamed of themselves for isolating and using Alinsky tactics to make a woman miserable but that is how the left is--misogynist and racist to women and people of color that are ideologically conservative.
Reader Freda Barry objects to my view that President Trump’s errant words and deeds are testing the faith of his followers. She writes: “No, supporters of President Trump are not losing faith. We are, however, totally dismayed by the unrelenting attacks on our president from the corrupt media! “Please don’t give up on us or the president we VOTED into office. We still pray that he will NOT give up, even under continuous assault.” Her plea is obviously heartfelt, and others also invoked prayer in delivering similar messages. But while I haven’t given up on Trump, I am concerned about the state
Aides to President Trump reportedly organized an “intervention” recently in an attempt to get their boss to curb his infamous tweetstorms. Trump’s staff had been worried about some of the inaccurate claims he made on Twitter and held the Twitter-vention in the past few weeks as The White House has come under intense scrutiny, The Wall Street Journal reported Friday night. Most notably, the staff was worried about the accusation Trump made in March that former President Obama had wiretapped Trump Tower during the 2016 presidential election, the Journal said. “Is it legal for a sitting President to be ‘wire tapping’ a race
Here´s a little fun for your Friday. Today former Congressman and soon to be ex-husband Anthony Weiner pleaded guilty in federal court to texting explicit images to a 15-year-old girl. He faces up to 27 months in prison. It was just a few short years ago that the left and their friends in the media defended Weiner against allegations he was preying on young girls and viciously attacked Andrew Breitbart for his reporting on the issue. Enjoy: (Snip for Breitbart video) Andrew was right and today further proves it.
The appointment of former FBI Director Robert Mueller as the special counsel overseeing the Russia probe has muted, at least a bit, and at least for now, the clamorous calls from the left to impeach President Trump. Nonetheless, millions of liberals throughout the country are surely still salivating over the prospect of impeaching our scandal-plagued president. Sorry to disappoint you, but it´s almost certainly not going to happen. To remove Trump from office via impeachment, you need a two-thirds majority of the Senate. Even if all 48 Democrats and Democratic-aligned independents voted in lockstep to impeach, you´d still need 19 Republican senators
Just six years ago, Anthony Weiner seemed to have it all: a career as a veteran congressman, a highly regarded wife and an excellent chance to be elected mayor of New York. Then he lost it all — and more. He’s now too pathetic to even be a laughingstock: a confessed felon who has to register as a sex offender, headed for divorce and prison. It’s a classic tragedy: a man of considerable talent brought low by his own flaws. As he tearfully admitted Friday in Manhattan Federal Court, he has no one to blame but himself and his “destructive impulses.” Weiner pleaded guilty
The man can´t help himself. I´m speaking of course of our president, Donald Trump, whose talents at marketing and publicity brought him wealth and fame and, at the age of 70, the highest political office in the nation. Aggressive, flamboyant, unpredictable, and combative, Trump´s impulsivity has benefited him as a businessman and as a candidate, but not as a president. His desire to convey an image of speed and determination has resulted in executive orders stopped by judicial intervention and a legislature that is quarrelsome and confused. His popping off on Twitter creates scandals that should not otherwise exist, and
When a man drove his car into a crowd of pedestrians in Times Square, many minds turned immediately to terrorism, which, given the recent history of vehicular attacks — Berlin, Nice, Stockholm, Westminster, Ohio State University, all in the past two years — was not unreasonable. But the driver may simply have been drunk. He has twice been convicted of drunk driving and does not appear to be a malefactor of the “Allahu akbar!” variety. Chris Hayes of MSNBC broke ranks with his fellow progressives who were spending the morning kicking the corpse of Roger Ailes to climb upon the
Many mistaken beliefs left over from the 1960s are embedded in mainstream, which is to say liberal, American culture. As an earnest young lefty I was taught that generals like war, that businessmen like free markets, that Christians think everyone else is going to hell, and that Republicans are conservative ideologues. None of these statements is true. Roger Ailes, for instance, was a Republican but he wasn´t an ideologue. Of course he believed certain things to be true. He believed that over the last two generations left-wingers had swept the field culturally and were now safely in control of every influential
The final tab for former President Obama´s eight years of family travel to ski resorts, beaches and European cities has finally come in and the bill is $99,714,527.82. Judicial Watch, the taxpayer watchdog group that has shifted its attention to President Trump´s travel costs, said it just received some of the last responses to Obama-era Freedom of Information Act requests for trip costs from the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Secret Service. They show: — The March 2014 trip to Key Largo during Spring Break – where the first family stayed at the exclusive Ocean Reef Club – cost the Secret Service $247,827.50;
Sacramento- When normal people talk about “freeloaders,” they usually are referring to the assorted welfare dependents, scammers and, yes, public employees who game the system to do as little productive work as possible and receive as many taxpayer-supplied benefits as they can muster. In California, freeloading is an art form, but the term is largely verboten. We don’t want to be accused of insensitivity or other retrograde attitudes, after all. So I guess we can thank Gov. Jerry Brown for making it OK to speak directly about these folks. During a speech earlier this month in Orange County, the governor made his
Anonymous sources may not always be reliable, but they’re always convenient. More than that, anonymous accounts are usually made of putty, soft and easily shaped. Not only that, an anonymous source never claims he was misquoted. He never demands a correction or a retraction. The Washington Post, which deals in anonymous sources for many of its blockbuster disclosures, is particularly skilled at working with anonymous sources, and gets more out of them than almost any other newspaper. Bob Woodward, of Woodward and Bernstein fame, once based a blockbuster on an interview with a man in a deep coma, and at the
As the consequences of climate change strike across the United States, ecologists have a guiding principle about how they think plants will respond. Cold-adapted plants will survive if they move “up”—that is, as they move further north (away from the tropics) and higher in elevation (away from the warm ground). A new survey of how tree populations have shifted over the past three decades finds that this effect is already in action. But there’s a twist: Even more than moving poleward, trees are moving west. About three-quarters of tree species common to eastern American forests—including white oaks, sugar maples, and American hollies—have
Clearly disappointed to have been left out of the headline heroics from Friday night (courtesy of The Washington Post and The New York Times), CNN has decided that anonymously sourced perspectives on officials´ feelings now warrants reportage. The latest in the sad sage of mainstream media´s downward spiral, as The Hill reports, is that former FBI Director James Comey is expected to testify that he believes President Trump was deliberately trying to meddle in the FBI’s investigation of Russian interference in the presidential election, according to a report late Friday. Despite swearing under oath that he "had never" been influenced
It’s coming from inside the house. Throughout Trump’s presidency and increasingly in the past few weeks, leaks from staff members to the press are undermining the president. The New York Times reported Friday exact details of Trump’s meeting last week with Russian officials. The report cited a document read to them by an “American official,” which summarized the meeting. “I just fired the head of the F.B.I. He was crazy, a real nut job,” Trump said, according to the report. The president then added, “I faced great pressure because of Russia. That’s taken off.” The White House did not dispute this account. Shortly

The Obamas arrived in Tuscany on a private plane escorted by six fighter jets and a 13-car motorcade on Friday as they continue their all-expenses-paid world tour. Barack and Michelle Obama will have an entire 14th century village to themselves during their five-night stay - at an eye-watering cost of $15,000 per night. Not that the couple are likely to have paid, as it´s owned by the ex-president´s former ambassador to Italy, John Philips. On Friday, the former president and first lady touched down at Grosseto Air Base in Tuscany, their private jet accompanied by six Eurofighter Fourth Wing jets. The couple where
Well that didn’t last long. Bob Beckel has been fired by Fox News just shortly after returning to air. Beckel, who played the part of the Washington Generals “token liberal” on The Five left the network in mid 2015, but recently came back just as his show moved to a coveted prime time slot at 9PM. Ratings for the new prime time line up have not been great since moving from the 5PM slot, as last week MSNBC enjoy According to Brian Steinberg, writing for Variety: “Bob Beckel was terminated today for making an insensitive remark to an African-American employee,”
WASHINGTON — President Trump told Russian officials in the Oval Office this month that firing the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, had relieved “great pressure” on him, according to a document summarizing the meeting. “I just fired the head of the F.B.I. He was crazy, a real nut job,” Mr. Trump said, according to the document, which was read to The New York Times by an American official. “I faced great pressure because of Russia. That’s taken off.” Mr. Trump added, “I’m not under investigation.” The conversation, during a May 10 meeting — the day after he fired Mr. Comey
Actor Robert De Niro delivered an outburst of anti-Trump vitriol just before the Saturday night debut on HBO of The Wizard of Lies, a movie in which he plays Bernie Madoff. He told USA Today that Madoff’s story still “resonates” thanks to President Donald Trump and that while what Madoff “did was horrible and awful; monstrous,” Trump is worse than the Ponzi scheme criminal since he’s a “bad con artist” who every day is “doing something that is absolutely — what word can I use? He’s just a slob. He’s a pig.” From the top of the article by Patrick
Former GOP presidential candidate Jeb Bush suggested Friday that his predictions on the campaign trail that President Trump would bring "chaos" to the White House had been validated. "When I ran for office, I said he is a chaos candidate and would be a chaos president," Bush said at the Skybridge Alternatives (SALT) hedge fund conference in Las Vegas, according to CNN. "Unfortunately, so far chaos organizes the presidency right now," he added. Bush, a former Florida governor, fought bitterly on the 2016 campaign trail with Trump, labeling the real estate mogul a "chaos candidate" and arguing he would make a
The sudden death of Roger Ailes (R.I.P.) yesterday is a grim omen for the network he envisioned and built. In the wake of the recent upheavals at Fox News, the conservative cable television network’s ratings are experiencing a precipitous decline from cable news leadership for the first time in the history of the channel. As the rest of the mainstream media continue their efforts to undermine and “resist” the Trump Administration, this development bodes ill for the future -- not only of the unique kind of fair and balanced if right of center reporting pioneered by the Fox News Channel
Gender studies is a fake academic industry populated by charlatans, deranged activists and gullible idiots. Now, a pair of enterprising hoaxers has proved it scientifically by persuading an academic journal to peer-review and publish their paper claiming that the penis is not really a male genital organ but a social construct. The paper, published by Cogent Social Sciences – “a multidisciplinary open access journal offering high quality peer review across the social sciences” – also claims that penises are responsible for causing climate change. The two hoaxers are Peter Boghossian, a full-time faculty member in the Philosophy department at Portland State University, and
Target has long been loved by people because it´s a fun place to shop. At least it used to be a fun place to shop. Customer satisfaction with the total shopping experience at Target has declined for a fourth consecutive period, according to a new survey of 2,500 people done by investment bank Cowen. Declines in customer satisfaction were seen across the board, led by drops in customer service, merchandise selection and product quality. Overall, Cowen says customer satisfaction at Target plunged 383 basis points to 66.7%. It appears unhappy Target shoppers could be taking their business elsewhere. On Wednesday,
Anderson Cooper shocked his viewers after he told fellow commentator Jeffrey Lord that he´d ´defend Trump if he took a dump on his desk!´ The frustrated CNN host was discussing Trump´s recent ´nut job´ comments about his recently fired FBI director James Comey. ´You can´t defend what the president of the United States just said,´ Cooper told Lord during the live show on Friday. (Photo/Video) But when the conservative commentator tried to do just that, Cooper snapped: ´If (Trump) took a dump on his desk, you would defend it.´ Lord looked stunned before bursting out laughing at the extraordinary comment.
The latest round of White House staff shake-up stories has prompted a change in how President Trump´s team handles the media, shifting away from engaging in issue debates with reporters to a blunt yes-no approach. Insiders said it is driven by Trump who was angered by a New York Times story predicting a staff shake-up that included dumping spokesman Sean Spicer. It was headlined: Looking Like a Liar or a Fool: What It Means to Work for Trump. "F**k the New York Times," Trump said. "They´re not our friends. We´re never going to win them over," he added, according to a
