Melania Trump has broken her silence on her husband President Donald Trump's attack on teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg, saying the 16-year-old Time cover star and her son, Barron Trump, are not in the same league.The first lady has been criticized for not excoriating her husband, who tweeted Thursday it was "ridiculous" Time magazine named Thunberg its person of the year. Melania Trump previously rebuked law professor Pamela Karlan for mentioning Barron, 13, during an impeachment hearing before the House Judiciary Committee earlier this month.The first lady's spokesperson Stephanie Grisham said in a statement Friday that Barron Trump "is not an activist who travels the globe giving speeches," referring to the difference between him and Thunberg.

The White House pushed back Friday against claims that Donald Trump's tweeted jab at global warming activist Greta Thunberg, 16, is incompatible with Melania Trump's protective insistence that her 13-year-old son Barron is out-of-bounds for reporters. The first lady has crusaded against cyber-bullying as one plank in her 'BeBest' platform. The president mocked Thunberg on Thursday after Time magazine named the jet-setting, school-bycotting teen its Person of the Year, leaving his spokeswoman to parry claims of hypocrisy. 'BeBest is the First Lady’s initiative, and she will continue to use it to do all she can to help children,' White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham said in a statement. 'It is no secret that the President and First Lady often communicate differently — as most married couples do.' 'Their son is not an activist who travels the globe giving speeches,' Grisham said of Barron Trump. 'He is a 13-year-old who wants and deserves privacy.' The White House … [Read more...] about ‘She is an activist who travels the globe.

On her second day in London, Ivanka Trump treated the UK's government headquarters as if it were an Infinity Room, taking time to meticulously document her entire visit on Instagram. Ivanka has emerged the most egregious clout chaser in a family that seemingly feeds off attention. On Tuesday, she posted ten pictures taken inside 10 Downing Street, in what is becoming the worst “What I Did This Summer” photo essay ever written. While ignoring boos from protesters this afternoon, Ivanka entered “a business roundtable for industry leaders” in a $3098 Dalmatian-print ensemble by Burberry. No matter than comparisons to Cruella de Vil were inevitable. Nothing says rock solid diplomacy quite like dressing as a (fictional) puppy killer. Much like her father, who has done many unforgivable things as president—including making us watch him in a very tiny dinner coat on Monday —the former model has proved pretty inept when it comes to picture time. As a … [Read more...] about Ivanka and Melania Trump Channel Disney Villains and Bond Girls in State Visit Game of Dress-Up
Backgrid Donald and Melania Trump threw a bash at The White House for members of Congress and ... well, let's say it looked liked it snowed in D.C. The annual Congressional Ball went down Thursday night, although the photos were just released. 45 posed for photos with guests in the Grand Foyer of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Backgrid Among those who attended ... Democratic Reps. Antonio Delgado (NY.), Susie Lee (Nev.), Elaine Luria (VA.), Jim Costa (CA), Josh Harder (CA) and Gil Cisneros (CA). As you know the House Judiciary Committee gave its thumb's up Friday to impeachment and sent the 2 articles on to the full House of Reps. All money is on the full House impeaching Trump next week, but it's virtually a foregone conclusion the Senate will not convict him, which means Trump will remain in office. Some pundits are saying the Democrats who showed up at the W.H. shindig may be considering voting against impeachment. We should know by Thursday. … [Read more...] about Donald and Melania Trump Throw Christmas Party for Members of Congress
As hundreds of parachuters made commemorative jumps onto Normandy on June 5, to mark the anniversary of D-Day, Melania Trump’s hat at a memorial ceremony also looked like it fell from the sky. With its saucer shape and small dimple at the top, the Philip Treacy fascinator immediately inspired comparisons to a UFO. Off of Melania’s head, it could have also made for a mean frisbee. The First Lady is a noted fan of white headgear. While meeting with the Queen on Monday, she tried her best Joan Collins-in-Dynasty in another tilted boater hat. During Wednesday's salute to veterans in Portsmouth, U.K, that brought together leaders from around the globe, the First Lady’s fascinator was angled so sharply to the left that it made one fear for the safety of her seat mate, Greek president Prokopis Pavlopoulos. “ She paired the somewhat hostile hat with a cream coat from The Row, a New York-based design house founded by Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen. Footwear News … [Read more...] about Is That a Hat or UFO? Melania and Ivanka Trump Bid a Fashionably Fierce Farewell To U.K.
The gangland summit was convened at a house in North Richmond, Virginia, on a Sunday in December 2015, and it’s worthwhile to remember that moment in America. The presidential campaigns were well underway, and Donald Trump’s fear-based candidacy was gaining momentum quickly thanks to terror attacks in France and San Bernardino, California. From the beginning, he had built his base around the notion that foreigners with dark skins were inherently dangerous. Now he was talking about a temporary ban on all Muslims entering the United States. But the core of his campaign from the moment he launched it in June was about “Mexicans,” meaning pretty much anyone from South of the Border. "When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best," Trump had said. "They're sending people that have lots of problems, and they're bringing those problems. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists." The men around the room in Richmond were from Central … [Read more...] about Inside the Myths and Madness of MS-13, Donald Trump’s ‘Perfect Villain’
