Is there media bias against the first lady of the United States? James Woods — a veteran actor who is no stranger to the workings of Hollywood, media, politics and publicity — summed it all up in 21 words.

“If the Trumps were Democrats, Melania would be on every cover of every chic women’s magazine in the world every month,” Mr. Woods wrote in a recent tweet which was subsequently retweeted over 20,000 times by those who agree with him.

It is ironic, since Mrs. Trump is a mother, businesswoman and former high fashion model who has been nothing but poised and gracious on the global stage in the past 15 months. The White House itself candidly lists the first lady’s previous credits, noting: “She has graced the covers of Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, British GQ, Ocean Drive, Avenue, In Style, and New York Magazine. Her major layouts include the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, Allure, Vogue, Self, Glamour, Vanity Fair, and Elle.”

Media skittishness these days has perplexed more than one journalist.

NBC News media analyst Claire Atkinson investigated the trend in February noting that there was “a clear reluctance among editors to put themselves in the cross-hairs of the culture wars” by featuring the wife of President Trump — despite her stature as a versatile and engaged public figure who speaks five languages and has consistently higher favorability ratings than anyone in the White House.

“There’s also a sense that editors could be taking a political stand,” the NBC analysis said, quoting one editor who claimed it was a “moral issue.”

Now there are some numbers. New York Post media analyst Alexandra Steigrad has parsed coverage of the first lady since Mr. Trump’s inauguration, and here is what she found.

“During her tenure as first lady, Melania has only graced one magazine cover — Vanity Fair Mexico — in February 2017. At the time, the cover caused a commotion due to the president’s insistence that Mexico pay for a border wall, something that has yet to come to fruition,” Ms. Steigrad writes.

“Regardless, not one American magazine has put the former model on its cover, although rumors did swirl in December 2016 when Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of Vogue, paid a visit to Trump Tower,” she continues, noting that there was nothing to the chatter.

“But Wintour, an Obama fundraiser, did pull out all the stops for Michelle Obama when she served as first lady from 2009 to 2017. During Barack Obama’s eight-year presidency, Michelle appeared on at least 30 U.S. magazine covers, three of which were Vogue. She also appeared twice on the covers of Essence magazine, Time magazine, More magazine and Glamour magazine. Other covers included Redbook, InStyle, and Radar,” Ms. Steigrad said.

Nwo Report

Hacking Group "Anonymous" Has Issued A CHILLING AnnouncementSource: Alex Cooper

Something seriously bad is happening right now and it’s about to shift the face of democracy in the free world.

George Soros is well known by now for his donations to BLM and other extreme leftist groups, not to mention the millions he’s given Hillary.

Things just went to code red though, because Jill Stein has just initiated a campaign to demand a recount of the vote.

What is about to happen could possibly cause a civil war. Anonymous, the infamous group responsible for hacking multiple high-level officials and agencies, just made a grave announcement:

“It’s over, folks.

They are absolutely taking this from Trump. If you were able to see these stories they already have prepared for us to start running next week, your jaw would hit the ground.

They are going to “find” that the results were indeed “hacked”. They have everything set in place…

INSTANT JUSTICE: Trump “Sexual Assault” Story Immediately Debunked With 3 Simple Photos – Subject: Politics

BogusTrump “Sexual Assault” Story Debunked!

The mainstream media is at it again.

Hillary’s campaign and their lapdogs in the media are getting desperate following Trump’s epic beat down of Hillary in Monday’s debate.

Last night, the despicable New York Times published a baseless hit piece where a woman claims Trump sexually assaulted her DECADES AGO on a commercial airline.

Soon after this garbage was published, thousands of people on the internet noticed one MAJOR problem with these accusations against Trump.

Jessica Leeds says Trump assaulted her during a FIRST-CLASS flight to New York about three decades ago. Leeds, now 74, claims Trump lifted the ARM REST and began to touch her inappropriately about 45 minutes into the flight. “He was like an octopus,” she said. “His hands were everywhere.”

BUT HERE’S ONE MAJOR PROBLEM WITH THAT STORY…

FIRST CLASS SEATS DO NOT HAVE ARM RESTS THAT RAISE UP AND THEY NEVER HAVE!

(See pictures below)

Here’s what one longtime Pilot posted on /r/The_Donald last night regarding the details of the accusers story:

“THE STORY DOESN’T SEEM PLAUSIBLE…THE REASON ARM RESTS FOLD UP IN ECONOMY CLASS IS THAT THE ROWS ARE SO CLOSE TOGETHER THAT MANY PEOPLE COULDN’T GET OUT OF THEIR SEATS OTHERWISE. IN FIRST-CLASS, THIS ISN’T AN ISSUE. I’VE ALSO LOOKED AT AS MANY FIRST-CLASS PICTURES AS I COULD FIND ON GIS (GOOGLE IMAGE SEARCH), NOTHING, NOT A SINGLE FOLDING ARM REST.”

This is what the seats/armrests in first class look like:


Those armrests won’t be lifting.


No need for retractable armrests here…


Update: The Crack team at CNN had their ‘Aviation Editor’ look into the armrest question and he claims to have found a couple of examples of adjustable armrests in first-class…If ONLY they had someone at CNN looking into the thousands Wikileaks emails.

Armrests aside, don’t you find it odd that this story is just now surfacing?

Ms. Leeds had 30 years to report this, but just recently decided to make these accusations against Donald Trump just 3 weeks before election day!

Why were there no reports from any stewardesses? Why no witnesses?

These accusations seem to be just another attempt to destroy Trump. This is how dishonest the mainstream media has become.

To steal part of a Michelle Obama quote, They go low when Donald Trump’s poll numbers go high!

Share this so that EVERYONE sees it because you know the media won’t cover this!
