The media kicked the smear machine into overdrive the moment Donald Trump wrapped up the election.
Now the attacks are extending to his wife.
And the media is engaged in a major cover-up.
Recently, supermodel Emily Ratajkowski fired off a series of tweets about an offensive remark made by a New York Times reporter about the First Lady.
Ratajkowski stated that the reporter called Trump a “hooker.”
Sat next to a journalist from the NYT last night who told me "Melania is a hooker." Whatever your politics it's crucial to call this out for

The Times reprimanded the reporter, but has so far refused to divulge the identity of the individual who spread lies and falsehoods about the First Lady.
This is a cover up to protect their anti-Trump partisan who was spreading defamatory information about the First Lady.
Editors at the New York Times have reprimanded a reporter for referring to first lady Melania Trump as a “hooker” at an event Sunday night, calling the remarks “completely inappropriate.”
The reporter in question, who has not been identified by the paper, came under fire Monday morning after supermodel Emily Ratajkowski made the reporter’s remarks public in a series of tweets. Ratajkowski, who said the reporter made the remarks while sitting next to her at a New York Fashion Week event, called the comment “disgusting sexist bull—t.”
“At a party last night, a Times reporter who does not cover Washington or politics, referred to an unfounded rumor regarding Melania Trump,” a Times spokesperson said in a statement to POLITICO. “The comment was not intended to be public, but it was nonetheless completely inappropriate and should not have occurred. Editors have talked to the reporter in question about the lapse.”
The Times reporter was parroting a lie about Melania Trump that has been peddled by liberal bloggers and the media.
Trump has already settled one defamation lawsuit against a left-wing blogger in Maryland who had falsely asserted she worked as an escort.
“First lady Melania Trump has settled a defamation lawsuit for a “substantial sum” against a Maryland blogger who wrote about unsubstantiated rumors she had worked as an escort and falsely said she suffered a breakdown, Trump’s lawyer said on Tuesday.
“I acknowledge that these false statements were very harmful and hurtful to Mrs. Trump and her family, and therefore I sincerely apologize to Mrs. Trump, her son, her husband and her parents for making these false statements,” the blogger, Webster Tarpley, wrote in a statement released by Trump’s lawyer.
A lawyer for Tarpley confirmed the accuracy of the statement in an email and said the case had been resolved. Neither side would divulge the amount of the settlement, though Trump’s lawyer Charles Harder called it a “substantial sum.”
Others pointed out the double standard in the media.
Critics contended there is zero chance the media would have conspired to conceal the identity of a reporter who referred to Michelle Obama as a “hooker.”
If a reporter for a conservative publication had referred to Michelle Obama as a "hooker," do you think news media would hide his identity?

There is little chance any reporter who even cared to say Michelle Obama was anything less than a combination of the Virgin Mary, Joan of Arc and Queen Elizabeth I would be protected, let alone fired and run out of the journalism profession.
