On Monday, news broke that First Lady Melania Trump had been rushed to Walter Reed Medical Center in Washington, D.C., for emergency kidney surgery. Today, she has made headlines once again, this time for the “special gift” that Hillary Clinton received. You’re going to love this!
The media and the Democrats have seemingly tried everything in their arsenal of tricks to destroy First Lady Melania Trump. They dug up old photos of the former runway model in a classless attempt to embarrass her, but this only made her the envy of every woman alive, as her figure was flawless.
When this didn’t work, they tried to humiliate her by mocking her accent. This tactic failed, as well, when it was revealed that Melania actually speaks five languages and originally immigrated to America on a coveted “Genius Visa.”
Still undeterred, the media and their Democratic cronies are now trying to destroy Melania’s marriage by trotting out any sleazeball who claims to have slept with her husband in the last two decades. This has failed, too, as recent public appearances have shown that the first lady and the president are more in love and supportive of one another than ever.
The end result of all these nasty games from the left, however, was not what they had hoped. Melania has only grown in popularity, and at the same time, so has her name. According to a ranking released by the Social Security Administration, the name “Melania” came in fifth among the fastest-growing girls’ names from 2016 to 2017, moving 720 spots up the list.
Imagine that! The woman who has endured more unwarranted attack from the left than any one of her predecessors is actually so popular that new parents are racing to name their baby girls after her. Of course, you’d have no idea that Melania is so popular from watching CNN or MSNBC. But the numbers don’t lie — she is fast becoming one of the most beloved first ladies in U.S. history, despite the left’s best efforts to bring her down.
First lady Melania Trump is having an influence on children, but not in the way she may have expected. The first lady’s name is quickly growing in popularity among baby names in the U.S., according to a ranking released Friday by the Social Security Administration.
Her name came in fifth among the fastest-growing girls’ names from 2016 to 2017, moving 720 spots up the list of the most popular girls’ names in the U.S. “Melania” was listed as the 1,650th most-popular name in 2016. The news coincides with a recent poll showing the first lady’s popularity surging by double digits since January, even among Democrats. [Source: Washington Examiner]
It appears that Melania’s beauty, intelligence, and class have endeared her to new parents looking for a special moniker to bestow upon their babies. However, the same cannot be said for one of Melania’s most notorious predecessors: Hillary Clinton. Hillary is one of the few first ladies in history to see the popularity of her own name decrease after taking office.
Hillary Clinton is a former senator, First Lady, Secretary of State, and is now leading in national polls for the Democratic nomination for president. But no one names their kids Hillary anymore.
According to the Washington Post, the popularity of the name Hillary fell dramatically beginning in 1993, the year that Clinton became First Lady. It fell 90% between 1992 and 1999.
The drop is made sharper by the fact that the name had actually been increasing in popularity up until 1992, and the Post points out that this is not the case with the names of all former presidents and First Ladies. [Source: TIME]
Although Democrats will never admit it, it’s easy to see why the name “Melania” has grown in popularity while the name “Hillary” has lost its steam entirely. After all, who wants to name their precious baby girl after a pantsuit-wearing liar who is married to an alleged rapist and lost the presidency twice?
