This. Is. Beautiful. (And we’re not just talking about the First Lady.)
Our classy First Lady has kept herself quite busy — she has been busy with her Be Best campaign, traveling to Africa, being mocked by unfunny comediennes as well as upholding her title as the number one target of the Media(D) for her style choices over and over again. And of course, a couple of former First Ladies have also attacked her as have a Congressional candidate and an (allegedly) Republican political pundit.
You just know that if this First Lady was married to a Democrat she’d be on the cover of every magazine and quoted constantly. However, she is married to President Donald J. Trump, so she is mocked, and called names, when she isn’t being shunned, shamed or blatantly ignored. When the last First Lady was in office, there was always much said about her wardrobe and her beauty, but with this First Lady, not so much other than criticism.
Despite the poor treatment, Melania has shown that she can handle the criticism and can even dish it out on occasion.
In an interview with Sean Hannity, the First Lady spoke about a wide range of topics including her relationship with the President. She said that when they met in 1998, there was ‘instant chemistry’ and she laughed about how she tells the President to ‘tone it down’ on Twitter.
She also addressed what she said the most difficult part of her role is — dealing with the ‘opportunists’. It was a gentle but firm clapback at her critics.
The first lady also spoke about the daily difficulties she has encountered in the White House during the Hannity interview, which was previewed by FoxNews.com earlier on Wednesday.
Melania said the hardest part of her role was dealing with ‘opportunists…using my name or my family name to advance themselves’.
She identified those opportunists as ‘comedians, journalists, performers and book writers’.
Hannity followed up by asking her: ‘Does it hurt?’
Melania defiantly replied: ‘It doesn’t hurt. The problem is they’re writing history and it’s not correct.’
She said she wishes the media would focus on ‘the substance and not the gossip’.
The First Lady also said that she tries to do what she feels is right and ‘stay true’ to herself. Hannity asked her to explain what she meant by that.
When he asked her to explain her frequent use of the phrase ‘stay true to myself’, she replied: ‘I do what I think is right. I know I will get the criticism – from the public or from the media – but I will do what is right and what I feel is right for the country and for the people.
‘That’s why I say I want to stay true to myself and listen to myself and what to do and what is right, what is wrong and live a meaningful life every day.’
Melania said of her path to where she is now: ‘It’s incredible, especially when you think about your life and where you were born, and all the steps you took.
‘It’s not like you just end up here, you learn a lot on the way here. In my business, and fashion business, it’s a tough business as well.
‘Here, the politics, it’s a tough business. You need to have very thick skin.’

Our First Lady is classy and bringing back some of that old-school femininity that we have been missing for so long.
I, for one, admire her.
It looks like I’m not alone in that regard.
The “resist” crowd loathes her. Patriots love her.
But love her or hate her, she’s Making America Classy Again.
