Skip to comments.Model, first lady: Melania Trump conspicuously absent from magazine covers

From British GQ to US Vogue, Melania Trump appeared on many magazine covers as a professional model. But since she became first lady, few editors have dared to put her on the front page.
Her absence is notable, particularly as the wife of a president who rarely spends a day out of the media spotlight. While cable news outlets have dedicated near wall-to-wall attention to the president and his administration, it's a different story in the magazine world.
There's a clear reluctance among editors to put themselves in the cross-hairs of the culture wars. Mostly New York-based editors may fear having to face unhappy readers or advertisers if they go with a choice so closely tied to President Trump.
And there's also some sense that editors could be taking a political stand.
"Some magazine editors may be putting politics ahead of money and vice versa," said Samir Husni, director of the Magazine Innovation Center of the University of Mississippi.
One major magazine editor, who asked not to be named, said that it's hard to keep anyone happy when covering the Trumps. The editor said all politicians are divisive for readers, but the Trumps are especially so.
"For some people, it's a moral issue," said the editor, explaining that some readers view the President's comments and actions as evidence of racism. "There is no way to do the Trumps without infuriating either the base or the resistance. It is a no-win."

Just what is to be expected from ‘HATE MEDIA’
“For some people, it’s a moral issue,” said the editor, explaining that some readers view the President’s comments and actions as evidence of racism.
Of course, the fact that “some readers” saw the Obamas as a blatantly racist, sexist bunch of inexperienced buffoons who were determined to destroy our country and society is absolutely meaningless because we’re not the “some readers” that matter.
The thing about the Trump’s are that they have done it all. Melania doesn’t need to be on covers anymore because she has been on them for decades. She is over it. Same with Trump and Hollywood and Sports, he doesn’t need them to go to the White House or go to events like the media crap. He has done it all for a very long time. The President and First Lady are only interested in doing a good job for the American People.
I guess they think Mooch was more fashionable than Melania. /S
The entire media complex has aligned itself with the hate-America left.
Editor’s “taking a political stand.”
Oh my, aren’t they just so brave?!
Honestly, that is kind of funny.
She is the only first Lady I can think of who looks like she SHOULD actually be on the cover of a fashion magazine, and they are blackballing her...
Good point. And the magazine media think they are “dissing” the Trumps by not featuring them, when in reality the President and Melania really don’t care; their focus is on MAGA.
They will put mentally ill men who believe themselves to be women on the cover of their magazines but are afraid to put the first lady on because of moral reasons and not wanting to get involved in the culture wars?
What a breath of fresh air!
No crotch scratching in public, no stupid dancing in other countries in what HAD to be an intentional act to embarrass our country, no stupid videos with videos that are a waste of taxpayer money (see: stupid video about turnips that could not have POSSIBLY been done to make disadvantaged children, who don’t even have a yard, want to grow them), no treating our country like it is her own personal checkbook by inviting all her ‘friends’, cuzzins, family members and everyone else she can stick on the plane to Africa at taxpayer expense, no giving her children ‘senior staff’ designations in what could have been an attempt to cull retirement benefits later in life for them and NO CONTEMPT FOR OUR FLAG AND COUNTRY DURING A 9/11 MEMORIAL CEREMONY. And thank GOD for an educated woman who doesn’t think that escaped slaves actually RODE the Underground Railroad.
And the media wonder why they are hated.
And nevermind that you couldn’t go through a checkout line for 8 long years without seeing Moochel’s face on everything from TV guide to cookbooks and “fashion” mags.
Who buys these trashy publications anyway? Talk about a waste of money. If they all disappeared tomorrow, it wouldn’t affect my life at all.
Funny how RATS actually DO what they lied about McCarthy doing.
Of course they are still swooning over the ugly Michele
