Trump and Vogue editor Anna Wintour
I had much more important things to do, and I did in the White House, than being on the cover of Vogue.”
Former first lady Melania Trump has slammed Vogue editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour, for never putting her on the cover when her husband was president, in her first interview since leaving the White House.
Fox Nation host Pete Hegseth raised the topic in his sit down with Melania, noting that first ladies Jill Biden, Michelle Obama, and Hillary Clinton have all appeared on the cover of Vogue and that Vice President Kamala Harris got the honor even before she was sworn in.
“They’re biased and they have likes and dislikes, and it’s so obvious. And I think American people and everyone sees it. It was their decision, and I have much more important things to do—and I did in the White House—than being on the cover of Vogue,” Melania said.
THE DAILY BEAST
In June 2018, amid outcry over her husband’s policy of separating children from their migrant families at the border, Ms Trump was seen wearing a Zara jacket with the phrase “I really don’t care. Do U?” on the back, sparking speculation she was making a political statement, something she denied.
Her “#BeBest” anti-bullying initiative was undermined by her husband continually bullying people online.
A leaked recording showed her cursing about her role in organising Christmas decorations at the White House. She was heard saying: “I’m working… my ass off on the Christmas stuff, that you know, who gives a fuck about the Christmas stuff and decorations? But I need to do it, right?”
Trump had appeared on the cover of Vogue in 2005 when she married Donald Trump, who was then best known as a New York property mogul. The magazine had exclusive pictures of Trump in her wedding dress.
The former first lady also reportedly declined a Vogue photo shoot shortly after former President Trump came to office because the magazine could not guarantee her the cover.
