Showtime Snubs Melania Trump, Leaves Her Out Of Drama About First Ladies


48 views

President Trump’s beautiful, lovely wife Melania has been unjustly hated on by the left and liberal-run media ever since she became our first lady.

In the latest attempted hit against Melania, the television network Showtime is leaving her out of their just-announced drama “First Ladies” pettily opting out of including Melania in the program.

Of course, the first season is set to focus on Michelle Obama, along with Eleanor Roosevelt and Betty Ford.

True Pundit had the following to say about Showtime's decision:

The Showtime network is airing a new drama called “First Ladies,” which stars Viola Davis as Michelle Obama.

Davis is also the executive producer of the project, which will, according to Deadline, explore “history’s most impactful and world-changing decisions have been hidden from view, made by America’s charismatic, complex and dynamic first ladies. The series will peel back the curtain on the personal and political lives of our most enigmatic heroes, with Season 1 focusing on Eleanor Roosevelt, Betty Ford and Michelle Obama.”

Notably missing from the drama, however, is America’s current first lady Melania Trump.

Her absence from the project seems to be a snub — even the Drudge Report picked up on the apparent bristle, running this headline: “SHOWTIME Snubs Melania with ‘First Ladies’ Drama …”

Deadline has more details about the upcoming drama:

Viola Davis is set to portray Michelle Obama in First Ladies, a one-hour White House drama that has been put on fast-track development at Showtime with a three-script commitment. Davis will executive produce the project, which hails from writer Aaron Cooley (novels Four Seats: A Thriller of the Supreme Court, The Guns of Ridgewood), Davis and Julius Tennon’s JuVee Productions, Cathy Schulman’s Welle Entertainment (Otherhood), Jeff Gaspin’s Gaspin Media (LA’s Finest) and Brad Kaplan (The Intruder). Showtime and Lionsgate TV co-produce.

Written by Cooley, First Ladies is set in the East Wing of the White House, where many of history’s most impactful and world-changing decisions have been hidden from view, made by America’s charismatic, complex and dynamic first ladies. The series will peel back the curtain on the personal and political lives of our most enigmatic heroes, with Season 1 focusing on Eleanor Roosevelt, Betty Ford and Michelle Obama.


The idea for the series originated with Schulman, who was inspired by a spec script Cooley had written about Lady Bird Johnson. In line with the mission of Schulman’s company Welle Entertainment, which is dedicated to making female facing content, the series will look at American history presidencies through a female lens — the first ladies.
