Melania Trumpís favorability trends upward despite scandal-seeking news coverage

Some wonder why ‘liberal feminists’ have not come to her defense

Much of the press coverage of first lady Melania Trump has descended from mere criticism and speculation to downright scandal mongering. The American public is not buying it, if recent poll numbers are a gauge.

Since December, Mrs. Trump has garnered very respectable favorability ratings. Gallup found that 54 percent of the nation gave her a thumbs up. CNN reported her positive rating to be 47 percent while an Economist YouGov survey gave her a 48 percent.

In the year since she became first lady, Mrs. Trump poll numbers have risen from 17 to 37 percentage points over the months, depending on the poll. Some news organizations have acknowledged this.

Both Fox News and The Hill recently ran nearly identical headlines which read “Melania Trump’s popularity soars” and “Melania Trump’s popularity climbs.” AOL News also reported the first lady’s “surging popularity.”

Such positive sentiment has continued for months, despite hostile press coverage which appears to have escalated.

First Lady Melania Trump is a classy lady and that's a fact, no matter what leftists say or think.

It's wonderful to once again have a First Lady to be proud of.

The 8 years we had that wookie dude in there seemed like forever. Every time they showed him in the news, despite every attempt to make him glamorous, I cringed.

Stupid, arrogant and ugly are no way to go through life.

Hollywood slutty idiot Chelsea Handler, said she wouldn’t have Melania on her show. .

Handler said that Melania barely speaks English. So why have her on the show. What is there to talk about etc.

Lots to criticize Handler for. Melania has an excellent command of English, in spite of her accent. Melania speaks multiple languages in fact.

I was stunned that a self righteous liberal Hollywood idiot would criticize Melania for allegedly not speaking English. Liberals profess to love all immigrants, legal or otherwise, no matter the language spoken.

Yep...Handler’s vocabulary is limited mostly to trash and I seriously doubt that the First Lady would have appeared on her trashy former show if she’d received an engraved invitation.

Oh, what a shame, since I never miss an episode of her ... presumably raunchy ... show. /s

I have a lower opinion of Jennifer Aniston since the two are apparently good friends.

Watch the company you keep, Jen.
