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.
A group of Senate Democrats is beginning to explore trying to extract concessions from Republicans in return for allowing Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch to be confirmed, according to multiple sources familiar with the matter. The lawmakers worry that Gorsuch could be confirmed whether Democrats try to block him or not — and Democrats would be left with nothing to show for it. That would be a bitter pill after the GOP blocked Merrick Garland for nearly a year. The deal Democrats would be most likely to pursue, the sources said, would be to allow confirmation of Gorsuch in exchange for a
Sears Holdings, the parent company of Sears and Kmart, announced in its annual report that "substantial doubt exists related to the company´s ability to continue as a going concern." The long, slow death of a retail legend appears to be inevitable. The death of Sears, while not imminent, brings to a close a significant chapter in American history. For nearly 100 years, Sears dominated the retail and catalog business in America. In rural America especially, Sears "wishbooks" opened a world previously unknown to farmers with reasonable prices for washing machines, ice boxes and other appliances as well as durable goods. The arrival
Back in 2009, when President Obama was trying to pass his stimulus package, conservative Erick Erickson accused then-Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of “spreading a cancer of capitulation.” To help drive this point home, Erickson launched a controversial campaign to “send Mitch some balls.” Today, as the Senate seems on track to confirm Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court, Erickson is giving credit where credit is due. “Though I have my disagreements with Senator McConnell,” Erickson tells me, “it seems very clear that his refusal to entertain the (Merrick) Garland nomination incentivized continued conservative engagement in the 2016 election
"Complicit" is a smooth-sounding word with a rough definition, meaning "involved with others in an activity that is unlawful," or, (according to Webster) "helping to commit a crime or do wrong in some way." When Michelle Obama supported her husband, when Hillary and Chelsea Clinton supported their husband and father, it was described being loyal, being involved, and being assertive, all excellent traits in your present-day woman. Only when Ivanka Trump is supporting her father does it become something quite close to criminal action, and it is the fact that she looks, acts, and lives both the feminist dream AND the
New, brutal details emerged Monday in the alleged rape of a 14-year-old girl at a Maryland high school by two male students, at least one of whom was in the country illegally. The unidentified student at Rockville High School in Rockville, Md. was violently raped, sodomized and made to perform oral sex in a campus bathroom stall by the two males, according to court records. Jose O. Montano, 17, from El Salvador, and Henry E. Sanchez-Milian, 18, from Guatemala, were charged with first-degree rape and two counts of first-degree sexual offense after they allegedly attacked the girl at 9 a.m. last Thursday. “The
The day after a tape of Donald Trump bragging about sexually assaulting women went public in October, Matt Schlapp, the chairman of the American Conservative Union, appeared on Fox News to defend him. A minute after his segment ended, his wife and fellow pundit, Mercedes, called to say it might be time to take a break from television. Matt had done a fine enough job. He looked great — white teeth, whiter hair, purple tie, comfy physique of a lobbyist who enjoys a good happy hour. He had signaled his continued support for the GOP nominee while also denouncing as “repugnant” his
Princeton economics professor emeritus and Nobel laureate Angus Deaton has been running around making an extraordinary claim: “Being really poor in America is in some ways worse than being really poor in India or Africa," he recently told the National Association for Business Economics. Asked about those comments in an interview with the Atlantic, Deaton doubled down: "If you had to choose between living in a poor village in India and living in the Mississippi Delta or in a suburb of Milwaukee in a trailer park, I´m not sure who would have the better life." This claim was qualified—Deaton is referring
Can you feel the pulse-pounding sense of excitement that’s sweeping the nation in the wake of the sudden rise to media prominence of superwoke everywoman Chelsea Clinton? I sure can, but then I’m a conservative Republican. I totally support the Democrats making Chelsea the face of their party. Please, please, please make her the face of your party. Let’s be clear – Chelsea is not an embodiment of malignant evil, as is her harpy mother. I am aware of acts of great kindness she has personally performed; she does not appear to be a morally bankrupt monster like her parents. Nor do I
Last week we talked about a rather ludicrous set of demands made by attorneys for confessed pedophile and child rapist Roman Polanski, laying out his “terms” for conditions under which he might return to the United States. His long overdue date in court would apparently only happen if he could be assured that he would not spend one more night behind bars. While I remain sure that this criminal would dearly love to get back for a few more rounds of parties in Hollywood with his friends before he dies, prosecutors in Los Angeles issued a resounding “not so fast”
FBI Director James Comey will enter the House hearing Monday on Russian activities during the presidential election as an imposing figure in many ways -- standing 6-foot-8 and having been at the center of numerous, high-profile criminal probes. His law-enforcement career began in the late 1980s. His relatively short time as head of the FBI includes his decision in July 2016 to investigate Hillary Clinton’s use of private email servers as secretary of state. The agency concluded the probe roughly three months later without recommending criminal charges, but it was considered a severe blow to Clinton’s ultimately failed White House bid. Comey,
Trump appointees to head the Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency to the contrary, the war on science isn’t limited to conservatives. Liberals have their own anti-science biases. Where conservatives often reject science based on their literal interpretation of the Bible or due to an abhorrence of federal regulations, liberals appear to be motivated by a belief that all things natural are good, anything with a chemical name is bad, and everything that profits an industry is really bad (unless that industry makes dietary supplements). If you don’t believe in the existence of the anti-science left, just walk
FREDERICKSBURG, Va. -- For thirty-three years, Terry Labar has been looking up at life. Terry’s career as a U.S. Marine was derailed when a car slammed into him on a road in the Middle East. “I just wanted to put this behind me and start a new chapter,” Terry said. “I never expected anything like this.” The events that day so long ago are fuzzy. Terry said he remembers, “just vaguely going up over the car and hitting my chin.” The Fredericksburg resident was paralyzed from the waist down, and he had difficulty adjusting to his new reality. “I woke up the first day
California Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters said that she´s ready to impeach President Trump on his 61st day in office. "Get ready for impeachment," Waters tweeted. (Tweet) It´s unknown if Waters was referring to a specific reason to impeach Trump or was just making a general statement. The tweet comes a day after FBI Director James Comey revealed the bureau is looking into any possible contacts between Trump´s campaign and the Russian influence campaign on the presidential campaign. The intelligence community has reported in the past The Kremlin worked against Hillary Clinton´s election and developed a preference for Trump.
Last week, the British intelligence agency GCHQ took the rare step of debunking as “utterly ridiculous” the Trump administration’s insinuation that Britain spied on Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign. On Monday, FBI Director James B. Comey testified plainly that “I have no information that supports” President Trump’s accusations that his predecessor ordered the “wires tapped” at Trump Tower. These false statements from the White House are part of a disturbing pattern of behavior that poses real and potentially profound dangers to U.S. national security. The foundation of the United States’ unrivaled global leadership rests only in part on our military
Chelsea Clinton and a select group of women will be honored next month in New York as Variety’s Lifetime Impact Honorees for humanitarian work. Variety magazine and the Lifetime television network will pay tribute on April 21 to Mrs. Clinton and five other women for their philanthropic endeavors. The 37-year-old will attend the Power of Women: New York luncheon with fellow honorees Jessica Chastain, Gayle King, Blake Lively, Audra McDonald, and Shari Redstone. “At the heart of New York City is a vibrant community of strong women in entertainment, media, and politics whose commitment to philanthropy is inspirational,” said Michelle Sobrino Stearns,
Armed Police have opened fire and shot an intruder inside the grounds of the Houses of Parliament amid reports a car drove into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge. Several shots were fired at around 2.35pm moments after a loud bang was heard near the grounds of Parliament. Three bodies were visible on the floor outside Parliament and the Palace was placed on an immediate lock down. Others were seen lying in the road on Westminster Bridge, where reports suggest around six people were knocked down by a car. Prime Minister Theresa May is said to have been bundled into a car by a plain-clothes police

Kellyanne Conway, counselor to President Trump, is so New Jersey that her Secret Service codename is “Blueberry,” but what many may not know, is her grandfather allegedly belonged to the Mafia in the 80s. Jimmy “The Brute” DiNatale, Conway’s late grandfather, allegedly had mob ties and was a “significant criminal associate" of Nicodemo “Little Nicky” Scarfo – the heir to the Bruno crime family based in Philadelphia, according to a memorial service page and law enforcement officials who spoke to the Philly Voice. The page lists Kellyanne Elizabeth Fitzpatrick Conway as his granddaughter and describes DiNatale as “a reputed Bruno-Scarfo
Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. on Tuesday said he and his estranged wife Sandi Jackson are $1.8 million in debt thanks to legal bills from their federal criminal prosecution and mounting fees from an acrimonious divorce playing out in courtrooms in two cities. Jackson Jr. talked to reporters during an at-times rambling question-and-answer session following a brief hearing in his divorce case at the Daley Center, opining on the state of Washington politics and the best way to settle the couple’s bills. Neither Jackson nor his wife, former alderman Sandi Jackson, has worked since their release from prison after serving sentences
The family of Seth Rich, a staffer for the Democratic National Committee who was murdered last July in Washington, D.C., has launched a crowdfunding page to raise money for investigating the unsolved case. Aaron Rich, the brother of the victim, created the GoFundMe page on Sunday to draw attention to the unsolved crime that took place July 10 in the Bloomingdale neighborhood of Northwest D.C. and raise $200,000. "One thing that no one tells you, and something we weren´t prepared to hear when we lost Seth, is that if a case isn´t solved immediately, it could take months or years before
As Republicans hail Judge Neil Gorsuch as an "outstanding" Supreme Court nominee, Democrats are lining up against him for partisan reasons. "My view is very simple," Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) told a news conference on Tuesday. "And that is, there is a cloud now hanging over the head of the president, and while that´s happening, to have a lifetime appointment made by this president seems unseemly, and there ought to be delay." (Video) (Earlier Tuesday, in remarks on the Senate floor, Schumer said it would be "unseemly" to move forward so fast with confirming Gorsuch while the "gray
South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham on Tuesday questioned Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch about what it would take to impeach President Trump. (Snip) "In case President Trump is watching, which he may very well be, one you did a good job picking Judge Gorsuch," Graham said to laughs, "and number two—here´s the bad part—if you start waterboarding people, you may get impeached. Is that a fair summary?" "Senator, the impeachment power belongs to this body," Gorsuch answered.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer called for a delay of Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation on Tuesday given the ongoing FBI investigation into potential collusion between President Donald Trump’s campaign and Russian officials. “You can bet, if the shoe were on the other foot and a Democratic president was under investigation by the FBI, the Republicans would be howling at the moon about filling a Supreme Court seat in such circumstances,” Schumer said on the floor. Schumer’s demand is highly unlikely to gain traction with Senate GOP leaders, who are planning a vote on Gorsuch early next month. But the move
The F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, took the extraordinary step on Monday of announcing that the agency is investigating whether members of President Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia to influence the 2016 election. Mr. Comey’s testimony before the House Intelligence Committee created a treacherous political moment for Mr. Trump, who has insisted that “Russia is fake news” that was cooked up by his political opponents to undermine his presidency. Mr. Comey placed a criminal investigation at the doorstep of the White House and said officers would pursue it “no matter how long that takes.” (Snip) The New York Times and other news organizations
