"I could say that I'm the most bullied person in the world," she said. “One of them -- if you really see what people are saying about me." She continued by saying her experience with bullying is in part what...

    She is viewed highly among Republicans and Independents, with a rating of 83 percent and 55 percent, respectively. However, among Democrats, only 28 percent view her favorably, with 56 percent of Democrats viewing her as unfavorably. . . The first lady stirred up controversy in June when she wore a jacket with the words “I Don’t Care, Do U?” on her way to visit a children’s detention center in Texas. “It was for the people, and for the left-wing media who are criticizing me, and I want to show them that I don’t care,”

    First lady Melania Trump revealed during an ABC interview aired Friday night that the jacket she wore getting on and off a plane to visit the border was a jab at left-wing media and critics. “I often asking myself if I would not wear that jacket if I would have so much media coverage,” Trump told Chief National Affairs Correspondent Tom Llamas in the interview conducted during her recent trip to Africa. The jacket in question was one she wore only to walk off a plane and again to board the plane that transported her to and from the border...

    Melania Trump isn’t just an anti-bullying advocate, she says she’s a victim, as well. In an interview broadcast Thursday morning on ABC, the first lady also showed she shared her husband’s gift for hyperbole. “I could say that I’m the most bullied person in the world,” Trump told reporter Tony Llamas. When he questioned that claim, she backed down, but only slightly. “One of them ― if you really see what people are saying about me,” she said. Many Twitter users didn’t respond to her with much sympathy. Instead, they broke out really teeny violins for a symphony of snark.

    Ooh, it’s a tricky one, isn’t it, Daniel? On the one hand, seriously, is that woman actually wearing a PITH HELMET in Nairobi? And, on the other, are we being unfeminist talking about it? Where is Andrea Dworkin when you need her, or maybe just Emily Post? Let’s hear from Trump herself, as she gave a marvellously huffy TV interview about this very subject when she was in Egypt last week: “I want to talk about my trip, not what I wear. That’s very important, what I do, what we’re doing with US aid, what I do with my initiatives,...

    We Too: First lady Melania Trump sat down with ABC News‘ Tom Llamas on “Good Morning America” for a rare interview without husband and POTUS Donald Trump to answer questions on the record that even the network admits were unscripted and not pre-approved. During one portion of the interview, Llamas asked the gracious first lady if she stood with the #MeToo movement, which, of course, is just the latest Left-wing anti-male narrative. “I support the women, and they need to be heard. We need to support them,” Mrs. Trump replied, adding, “And, you know, also men. Not just women.”

    Like the president, Mrs. Trump has eschewed long-held American ideas of how those who make the White House home ought to conduct themselves. And like him, Mrs. Trump is comfortable showing the world that she does not know what she does not know — and that she does not necessarily need to find out. On one of the most consequential days of her husband’s embattled presidency, as the Senate approved his controversial choice for the Supreme Court, Melania Trump traveled to the edge of this sand-colored city and posed before the Great Sphinx, one hand in the pocket of her...

With the Great Sphinx of Giza and the pyramids visible over her shoulder, first lady Melania Trump expressed support for Brett Kavanaugh, her husband's nominee for the Supreme Court, on the final day of a trip to Africa trip that focused on her advocacy for children.

    Melania Trump got a different view of educating children as she visited an African primary school on Thursday that has benefited from US assistance but struggles with an enrollment of more than 8 500 students. Some children learn lessons outdoors, seated shoulder-to-shoulder on loose, red dirt. Mrs Trump toured several outdoor classrooms at Chipala Primary School in Lilongwe, the capital of Malawi, the second stop on her four-nation tour of the continent. The school is among those in the landlocked country that receive education assistance from the US Agency for International Development, including textbooks. Mrs Trump was on hand as...

    A relaxed-looking Trump smiled and waved as she stepped off an overnight flight from Washington to be met on the red carpet by her Ghanaian counterpart Rebecca Akufo-Addo. She beamed as she was welcomed by a troupe of traditional drummers and dancers. "Thank you very much," she said with a smile. The former model, whose choice of clothing is keenly watched, changed from a safari-inspired departure outfit of suede trench coat and leopard print heels to a red and white striped dress with white pumps by the time she arrived in West Africa. She is scheduled to visit a hospital...
