Melania Fires Back After Vogue Editor Says She’ll Never Be On the Cover


Just like her husband, the first lady is unashamed to stand up for herself and what she believes in. 

Despite what mainstream media would have you believe, Melania Trump is a respectable, tasteful, and intelligent woman. 

She certainly has much more class than Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, who took a low, passive-agressive jab at Melania during a recent interview in which she implied that Melania will never be featured on the cover of the magazine (unlike Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton, who were both spotlighted on the cover of Vogue during their husband’s presidency.)

Mrs. Trump was not shaken in the least by Wintour’s petty, distasteful comment. 

Stephanie Grisham, representative of the first lady, responded, “To be on the cover of Vogue doesn’t define Mrs. Trump, she’s been there, done that long before she was first lady. Her role as first lady of the United States and all that she does is much more important than some superficial photo shoot and cover.”

You see, Ms. Wintour, some little girls actually grow up to become women, but you wouldn’t know about that.

Here’s the trending news that hit Twitter:

Some supporters of the Trump family are calling for their fellow comrades to boycott the magazine over Wintour's comments:

Fox News had the following to say about Melania's response to Wintour:

Melania Trump has "more important" things to do than worry about her next Vogue cover.

The first lady's rep told Fox News that being on the cover of the fashion magazine "doesn't define" her after its editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour, implied she wasn't interested in having Melania featured in the fashion mag.

"To be on the cover of Vogue doesn’t define Mrs. Trump, she’s been there, done that long before she was first lady," Melania Trump's spokesperson Stephanie Grisham told us on Friday.

"Her role as first lady of the United States and all that she does is much more important than some superficial photo shoot and cover," Grisham said. "This just further demonstrates how biased the fashion magazine industry is, and shows how insecure and small-minded Anna Wintour really is.

"Unfortunately, Mrs. Trump is used to this kind of divisive behavior."

Melania's remarks come after Wintour was asked by CNN's Christiane Amanpour why Vogue features first ladies and women leaders on its coveted cover. Amanpour failed to mention that the current first lady, a former fashion model, has been M.I.A. from the fashion magazine since taking up residence at the White House, while recent Democratic first ladies Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton both commanded covers.

"You have to stand up for what you believe in and you have to take a point of view," Wintour told Amanpour of how she picks her covers. "We profile women in the magazine that we believe in the stand that they're taking on issues we support them, we feel that they are leaders."

Michelle Obama was featured on the cover of Vogue three times when she was first lady, and Hillary Clinton graced the cover in 1998 with the tagline "The Extraordinary Hillary Clinton."

The Daily Wire also commented on Wintour's interview:

Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour publicly declared the magazine will only profile women who conform with their social agenda, dismissing the idea that Melania Trump will ever be featured on the cover.

Speaking with CNN's Christiane Amanpour this week, Wintour commented on why Vogue frequently features Democratic and progressive women on the cover, leaving little room for Republican women. According to Wintour, Vogue has taken a "point of view," as in left-wing.

 

"You are political. You were a major fundraiser for Barack Obama. Your magazine, the most important fashion bible in the world, does profile some very important women who are in politcs," Amanpour began. "Tell me about that, you are overtly political in your profiles and what you stand for, what is it you are trying to say by profiling a Michelle Obama or a Kamala Harris or even a Stormy Daniels?"

 

Wintour said that Vogue profiles such women because they support an agenda that aligns with Vogue. "If you're talking about the first lady or Senator Harris, obviously these are women that we feel are icons and inspiring to women from a global perspective," she said.

 

The Condé Nast artistic director added that the political climate is so dire that Vogue must "take a stand."

 

"I think you can't be everything to everybody ... I believe, as those of us who work at Condé Nast believe, you have to stand up for what you believe in and you have to take a point of view," Wintour told Amanpour.

 

The CNN host then pointed out to Wintour that Vogue overwhelmingly features Democratic women on their magazine covers. "I wonder if there is a reason for that. Is there?" Amanpour asked.

 

"We profile women in the magazine that we believe in the stand that they're taking on issues we support them, we feel that they are leaders," Wintour replied. "Particularly after the defeat of Secratary Clinton in the 2016 election, we believe that women should have a leadership position. We intend to support them."
