Conservatives like actor James Woods are confused and angry that Melania Trump hasn’t been on more fashion magazine covers since her husband became president. Woods blames the “shameless bias of the liberal mainstream media” for not featuring who he considers to be “the most stunning First Lady in American history.”
If you need any further proof of the shameless bias of the liberal mainstream media, the most stunning First Lady in American history has never graced our nation’s major style magazine covers... @FLOTUS @realDonaldTrump pic.twitter.com/qvL07hVdT9— James Woods (@RealJamesWoods) February 8, 2020
Other conservatives jumped on board the complain train, wondering why Melania hasn’t been on the cover of publications like Vogue and Elle when Michelle Obama landed a total of 12 cover stories during her time as First Lady. Of course, if these magazines really do harbor a liberal bias as Woods and others have claimed, then why would they feature the wife of Donald Trump?
Maybe conservatives need their own fashion magazine?
Or, maybe, as many pointed out, you actually need to do something or have something interesting to say in order to be on a magazine cover. Fashion magazines don’t just put you on the cover and leave it at that. Cover stories are supposed to come with in-depth interviews with the subject — something that Melania has always shied away from.
There would be an interview. She would be asked about BeBest, bullying, what she does with her time.
She’s very private.
Trump would demand Vogue print a fake interview provided by Grisham.
No editor would touch the project.
She is toxic to fashion magazines. IMO#ETTD

Others pointed out that she was on some fashion covers before she married Donald Trump, and some of them might be considered unbecoming of the First Lady.
Still, many commenters remained very upset that Melania has been left out of the spotlight. Some have even boycotted designer clothing altogether.
And because of that I no longer purchase magazines or designer clothing. It’s despicable the way they snub her, they are exposing themselves as the globalist arm of propaganda they are. Mrs Trump is stunning and seems so graceful and kind

You’re exactly right , they can’t stand that she’s so beautiful and Conservative.

It is a shame, and so Unfair! This wasn’t done to Fmr. First Lady Jackie Kennedy, cuz she was a Dem. and it shouldn’t be done today either! I think the Majority of Dems are Jealous/Envious of our First Lady and of our President, because they are the Best ever Pres. & First Lady!

That’s because they are jealous. We’ve never had any First Lady who was as beautiful as Melania.

Liberal commenters, meanwhile, were quick to go for the obvious joke.

And some had additional explanations as to why magazines don’t want to feature Melania.
Well, maybe someone can ask her why she lied under oath and said she was a college graduate…when she wasn’t?
If she similarly lied on her immigration forms she should be deported.https://t.co/Ba4EEMhuzo

Maybe it has something to do with her fashion choices. pic.twitter.com/hbDo76VeLh

I mean the birtherism, attacking a Jewish journalist, pretending to care about online bullying while her husband is the worst offender, lying about her education & immigration history, upset that she couldn’t sell her jewelry on the WH website. Her husband’s anti-woman policies.

Get a job, James Woods.
