Melania Trump, the wife of GOP front-runner Donald Trump, was not happy about the article written about her in GQ Magazine. Instead of insisting that Donald do something to protect her from negative press, she took a page from her husband’s book and fired back at her haters.
In an eloquent response to an article written by a journalist trying to make a name for herself in the media industry, Melania defended herself with class. The original article, written by Julie Ioffe, is highly inaccurate, according to Melania, and she intends to let the world know. As a former model and New York socialite, Melania is very particular about her public speaking engagements and rarely gets political.
However, she was so put off that the she issued a strongly worded response to Ioffe via Facebook:
The article published in GQ today is yet another example of the dishonest media and their disingenuous reporting. Julia Ioffe, a journalist who is looking to make a name for herself, clearly had an agenda when going after my family. There are numerous inaccuracies in this article including certain statements about my family and claims on personal matters. My parents are private citizens and should not be subject to Ms. Ioffe’s unfair scrutiny.
Furthermore, the statement surrounding the performance of my skincare collection is completely false. The company in which I was involved with did not honor the contract and did not meet their obligations and as such the courts ruled in my favor.
I am hopeful that the media will begin to cover me fairly and be respectful of my family’s privacy.
Melania alleges that most of the article was written unfairly and that most of the statements were either flat-out wrong or taken out of context. She also accuses the magazine, and Ioffe specifically, of going after her family with attempts to smear them.
In all fairness, Ioffe has also been attacked by the more vocal Donald Trump supporters, and some are even slinging anti-semetic slurs. However, they are far out numbered by those attacking Melania for the interview she did with the “not quite” popular magazine. Of course, one can’t blame Melania or her husband Donald Trump for the written words of one woman, and they aren’t to blame for attacks on Ioffe. She wrote the article with condemnation and attempted to harm a presidential candidates wife.
The importance should lie in factual reporting, unlike what Ioffe has done. She took an interview and twisted Melania’s words into something the woman did not mean. She also wrote flat-out lies not spoken by Melania. That should be noted by everyone who reads anything this woman ever publishes in the future. A mistake can be forgiven, but to write with the intent to distort a woman’s words to damage her husband’s political career is rather low.
If the leftists weren’t afraid of Donald Trump winning, they wouldn’t have to attack him. Their free ride could be coming to an end, and they are terrified.
