In almost every country, when a new leader comes into the office, the attention does not just center on the newly elected president, but also to their spouse. In the United States, there have been numerous First Ladies and it is inevitable to actually compared each and every one of them.
This is exactly what seems to be happening with the former First Lady Michelle Obama, and the current First Lady, Melania Trump. A lot of people have already noticed the difference between the Obama couple and the Trump couple. A lot of people have noticed these differences especially with the body languages of the two couples, some people speculates that Obama never really had any infidelity issues unlike the current president, which has definitely affected his relationship with his wife.
Then again, the two First Ladies are said to be completely different when it comes to a lot of things, but comparisons can still be u certain since Melania hasn’t managed to do such things yet. Donald Trump’s counselor to his administration, Kellyanne Conway, wasn’t afraid to state her opinion when it comes to the comparison between the former and the current First Lady, continue reading to find out what she said.
Conway: Melania is ‘Superior’ than Michelle
In an interview with TMZ, it seems like Conway definitely showed her appreciation over Melania by actually saying how the entire country must feel very lucky to have her as their First Lady and she also mentioned how Melania is indeed “superior” over former First Lady Michelle Obama.
This is after she was asked what her thoughts were on the fact that Melania hasn’t exactly received that much of attention from the magazine industry by gracing them with her presence on the cover. Whereas Michelle on the other hands has managed to appear in like a dozen of covers of magazines in the country. The White House counselor even said that Melania needs to appear in magazines just to be able to showcase how wonderful the First Lady’s works are.
It does seem to make sense that magazine editors are not very fond of the current First Lady. According to some sources, there are actually a lot of editors in New York that are afraid of putting Melania on the cover because of the negative response that they may actually get. Advertisers also have a big say on the matter and they may lose some of them if they actually put the current First Lady as the face of their magazine.
The director of the Magazine Innovation Center at the University of Mississippi, Samir Husni, said in a statement that there are actually some editors that are most likely to put politics ahead to money or the opposite. The First Lady hasn’t also been involved in a lot of political matters compared to Michelle, who has been hands-on when it comes to a lot of things, she also gives interviews and takes a stand on different issues in the country.
Melania, on the other hand, has been very quiet and just usually makes an appearance at some events but wasn’t really that appealing and at the same time approachable to the public. Some other magazine editors that preferred not to be named, said that it is very difficult for them to actually take the risk of having Melania on their cover because a lot of people might boycott their magazine especially those who are not so keen of the Trump’s.
Obama and Trump First Ladies Comparison
This is one of the major things people often notice, the former First Lady had that aura of being down to earth and approachable, unlike Melania who still seems to be a little uneasy when it comes to the people. So far, the First Lady hasn’t been very active when it comes to hosting events that would make a lot of impact into the country during her husband’s first year of office, unlike Melania who hasn’t really done much on her own so far.
She often speaks very briefly and wouldn’t often speak to the members of the press. Some people assume that one of the main reasons why it could be difficult for Melania to actually reach out to the public is because the media could ask her about some of her husband’s issue including his alleged infidelity. She hasn’t even officially announced what kind do platforms she will focus on as the First Lady of the country.
