Melania Fires Back at Vanity Fair: I'm 'Honored' to Be First Lady

Melania Trump is hitting back at a Vanity Fair article that claims "come hell or high water", she did not wish to be first lady.

This isn't surprising to anyone who has been following the current First Family, as Melania has come under scrutiny for remaining in NY while her husband was in the White House.

The First Lady, in the White House's statement, said she was looking forward to spending Christmas at the White House. It marks the first holiday season the Trumps will celebrate as the first family. I have no idea why.

Clarifying her comments on Saturday's TV show, Ivana said: "I said: 'I'm first Trump lady".

Paolo Zampoll - a United Nations ambassador to Dominica and former modeling-agency proprietor who introduced the couple 20 years ago - says that while in the beginning "it was not pleasant" for Melania, she is finally getting used to her new job. "As a magazine tailored to women it is shameful that they continue to write salacious and false stories meant to demean Mrs. Trump, rather than focus on her positive work as First Lady and a supportive wife and mother". "I don't envy him". Trump regularly dismisses the media as "fake news", including in a tweet Monday.

And Melania and her son Barron didn't actually move into the White House until June of this year-making her the first First Lady in the country's history to put off moving down to Washington. Ellison adds that after talking to a number of insiders, Melania Trump was "unprepared" and "unsuited" to handle the role of being first lady. "She plans to use her title and role to help children, not sell books", the spokesperson said in a statement.

"There is clearly no substance to this statement from an ex, this is unfortunately only attention-seeking and self-serving noise", the statement added. "I don't think she was ever too insane about it". "I think she's trying her best", she said. Whether she's swatting her husband's hand away, launching an anti-cyberbullying initiative while the President blasts members of his own party on Twitter, or inspiring conspiracy theories about a supposed body double that stands in her place, there's been plenty of fodder for those who love speculating about the First Lady's life.
