Michelle Obama spent eight years as the subject of fawning press coverage.
The Fake News Media adored Obama and tried to make her into the modern-day Jackie Kennedy.
But then Michelle Obama was red with rage after this truth about her was shared with the public.
When Michelle Obama was First Lady, she could count on so-called journalists to worship her every move.
“Reporters” wrote puff pieces about her hair, fashion choices, and workout routines.
The media did not cover Michelle Obama so much they as made her out to be a goddess.
Obama’s press coverage stands in stark contrast to current First Lady Melania Trump.
Melania Trump is an accomplished fashion model that speaks six languages but is portrayed in the press as an airhead with no fashion sense or social graces.
Liberal author Tammy R. Virgil’s new book “Melania and Michelle: First Ladies in a New Era” gets in on the act.
Miranda Devine of The New York Post writes about the book:
Vigil, a Boston academic, notes that Melania “ranks among the least liked of all modern first ladies, [and her] professional life prepared her to serve more as a visual adornment.”
The afterword belatedly acknowledges that “pitting the two women against one another is a troublesome (though common) practice.”
But, hey, if it damages the Trumps, go for it.
The Daily News got the message about who is more impressive: “Michelle was a polished attorney and huge asset to Barack; Melania, a top model, is nearly invisible,” goes the headline promoting the book.
Devine notes that the media’s coverage of Melania Trump has been mean spirited, personal, and conspiratorial.
Michelle Obama was treated as American royalty, whereas Melania Trump – whose story as an immigrant that came to America and made it is one the media would normally cherish – is treated as the nation’s red-headed step child.
Do you think Melania Trump is treated unfairly?
