First Lady Melania Trump – A Stunning Siren Wows Europe…

It is almost unfair to present a compare and contrast amid various power-play scenarios when the characters within the comparisons are titans of industry and the puppets known as politicians.  Rex Tillerson, Wilbur Ross, Steven Mnuchin and Donald Trump will forget more about titanic power-playing warfare than any of their current political colleagues will ever know; it’s the underpinning of their capacity to outwit all opponents.

The inequity factor increases when the worlds merge and one of the most instinctually well versed industrial titans decides to enter the sphere of politics.  However, when the life-long instincts of the Titanic spouse(s) are contrast with the spouses of the professional political class, well, the inequity of the dynamic rises exponentially.

It is not coincidental that amid the G7 group Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and President Trump are both friends, giants in capitalistic enterprise, and -quite simply- in a league of their own.   The same exponential contrast of significance exhibits itself with first spouses Melania Trump and Akie Abe.

While Canada’s Justin Trudeau and France’s Emmanuel Macron, brothers in skinny jean modern metrosexuality and pajama-boy-ism, try desperately to appear as though they deserve a place at the G7 grown-up’s table, the optical contrasts amid the spouses are necessarily synonymous.

Trying to avoid another day of unspoken embarrassment, the French political team -always keenly aware of the presentation- have instructed their first lady Mrs. Macron, to avoid any optics where she will be photographed and compared to Melania Trump.

During the first ladies outing today President Emmanuel Macron’s wife, Mrs. Brigitte Macron, was notably avoiding any possibility where she would be contrast against the stunning imagery of First Lady Melania Trump.

Too funny.

      You are only partially correct, friend Phil, Melania IS a trophy wife, true, but she is also that far rarer combination, a trophy wife AND a blue ribbon wife (see: https://www.garynorth.com/public/15600.cfm ). I am incredibly lucky and blessed myself in that I have such a wife… and I can see it in others… such as our magnificent present First Lady, who in my opinion is the first in generations to deserve the title… just as her magnificent husband is the first in generations to deserve the office.

          OF course, this is a man’s conversation going here, but as a woman, I get what you mean, and for the first time realize that the stereotype of “trophy wife” is not one size fits all. Donald Trump, in his own way, isn’t some ‘old guy’ and Melania isn’t a woman who would have cared about having a rich husband. Her brilliance alone makes her extraordinary, and the loveliness of her heart would make her a ‘prize’ indeed for any man.

          We’ll just say that somehow, someway, these two were meant to be together, same as several of you all noted about your marriages. 🙂

            Well, I’m right in either case, unless you deny that Melania is ‘eye candy’ or that she is a “young(er), attractive wife regarded as a status symbol for an older man.”

            1. She IS eye candy
            2. She IS a status symbol for an older man, Trump.

            But, she is much more as I said in my first response to you and as Rex Brocki posted.

            Sorry I did not use the “standard meaning for the phrase and will give the wrong impression.”

            I guess Trump and I have something in common. Sometimes, we give the wrong impression with the things we say without the intent to do so.

                One could think of her as a “Prize” for any good and decent man. It is an old-fashioned way of thinking, and of course political correctness has “cured” of us of all that old-fashioned phrasing, but it goes all the way back to medieval times, and doesn’t carry the negative connotation that “trophy wife” carries in our modern society.

                Some of us around here even know the meaning of the old, old western phrase, “setting one’s cap” – and what a “Hope Chest” was. 🙂 But there was a time when our culture had both.

    This is an article I was able to find about First Lady clothing. It covers Michelle Obama but also writes about the boycott of designers who have said they don’t want to work with Melania.

    http://www.thefashionlaw.com/home/the-making-of-a-first-ladys-wardrobe-and-fashion-industry-war-over-melania

    What it seems to come down to is the First Lady has several options – buy the clothing/shoes/accessories themselves (maybe at a discount), be ‘lent’ them for events and then return them to the makers or lastly have the clothing donated to the USA for their use and then they are stored by the National Archives.

    There maybe other options since Jackie Kennedy had some of her clothing bought by her father and given to her as a personal gift. Whatever option/s Melania is using, I’m sure everything will be clear and above board.

        As Melania Trump she could wear the same dress for numerous occasions. As First Lady Melania Trump everything she does will be talked about and discussed. I’m sure she will be buying many clothing herself, that she will wear repeatedly. Other clothing are more ‘one of a kind’ and she might not want to wear them again.

        The other possibility is that something may either not feel comfortable or not really look as good as she thought and she doesn’t want to keep it. She has great fashion sense and knows what works for her.

        As long as she keeps everything above board and within the same rules as other First Ladies no one except those on the left will/should have a problem with it.

      First Lady Melania doesn’t have to resort to options. She is rich enough to buy her own wardrobe and knows what she wants. She can design her own and a good seamstress can make them for her. She has a great sense of personal style. There are a couple of designers who gladly work with her and want her to wear their clothing. Who needs the rest of them? They can go pound sand. I don’t see that First Lady Melania would even consider borrowing clothing like Mooch did. She has way too much class and doesn’t expect favors. Mooch demanded favors.

      MOA you are right, of course. I keep babbling on about Melania’s appearance and clothing because I can’t seem to find the right words to fully express what I am perceiving about her intellect, character, sense of refinement just by what she wears and how she presents herself.

      But also, it may seem trivial and superficial, but clothing does matter in this way. Melania is along for the ride as the First Lady. She isn’t giving the speeches and making policy. And yet, she is representing us. So what is allowed/permitted/expected? That she show up and hopefully make us look good. Each outfit she has selected has made a statement about the people she is visiting, the situation she is in, how the world sees her husband, her country, and herself. She has shown that she is smart enough to assess each of these appearances and the complexities of them and demonstrate that understanding by what she wears. That is a lot to get across in a subtle yet effective way. I think a lot of people are “hearing” what she is saying whether they understand exactly how she is getting her message out there or not. Amazing.

          Let’s face the fact that a majority of Americans dress like they are working in a garden or not visible to other people. I even hate it when my own husband is roughly clothed. It doesn’t make me feel special in any way…just yesterday he wore an undershirt and I questioned why he didn’t put on a true shirt. Some days he just gets lazy.

          On another note, we have several decades of folks who believe that their tattoos are fashion. I ask, fashion to who? I was taught that tattoos were usually a sign of low class and I truly believe it. I suppose it is a sign of rebellion but rebellion against what? Once the tattoo is applied, it is FOREVER! I know about laser removal, but it is costly and takes a long time, if it works at all. I avoid people with tattoos and that is how I deal with it. My own daughter got a couple and then her and Dad and I went nuclear and saved her from destroying her body. She keeps them covered in my presence and she even admits 19 years later that she wished she hadn’t gotten them. They just don’t wear well at many functions when visible…those that are private are just that, private.

    Hi ad-rem,

    I was just hanging in the spam-bin like usual, reading today’s commentaries, and it occurred to me that in yesterday’s article, many of the ‘spouses’ were not called ‘spouses’ at all, but “partners”.

    What are they, cops?

    Like Mel Gibson and Danny Glover?

    Or is ‘partner’ supposed to be some kind of polite PC euphemism for shacking up?

    It’s all so confusing when the PC Police keep changing the meanings of words to mask what they’re actually doing. If they weren’t ashamed of it, you wouldn’t think they’d have a need to hide it, or pretend like it was something it’s not.

    Okay, that’s all for now, carry on!

    I can’t remember a time when I was this interested in watching what any other FLOTUS was doing on a trip like this and what outfit she’s wearing. It’s more than beauty as others have stated. Melania’s personality has also shone through all the hype and planned events and it is very appealing. Her appearances at the hospitals with sick children were very impressive and the kids loved it as well. She has a natural appeal and a special gift when she is with them and their expressions confirm it. Melania will brighten up any kids ward she visits.

      I think a HUGE part of their appeal is that they are modeling Masculinity and Femininity again. Remember that? the whole lovely, delicious Man/Woman thing? which the Commie pommies want to eradicate?

      Feast your eyes on the both of them. Human, sure; but also very fine role models in so many ways.

    Have I ever told you guys that when I see Melanie I drool and say “va-VOOM!” out loud? 🙂

    By the way,, Sundance: “brothers in skinny jean modern metrosexuality and pajama-boy-ism” is one of your top-ten “snort and giggle” phrases. A real keeper! LOL!
