A photo tweeted by the White House on First Lady Melania Trump’s birthday has raised many an eyebrow on social media.
The tweet that has generated more than 8,000 comments, simply says “Happy Birthday, @FLOTUS!” and is accompanied by a photo of Mrs. Trump sitting alone on the far end of a couch and staring into the distance, surrounded by an army of photographers and reporters in the Oval Office. Mrs. Trump turned 49 on Friday.
Melania Trump is a beautiful and photogenic woman, and the White House has access to hundreds of photos where the first lady is smiling, many of them with her husband. Why on Earth did the administration choose a picture of an unsmiling Mrs. Trump sitting alone to mark her birthday?
That mystery may never be solved, but the controversial photograph perfectly captures Melania’s essence.
In her long career trajectory from glorified escort to supermodel to gold-digger spouse of the President of the United States Melania lost her transparency, empathy and dare I say, her soul?
Melania isn’t facing the camera, she’s looking into the distance lost in her own thoughts. She has no interest in the photographers surrounding her, she’s probably debating which high-end boutique she will visit next.
Even though she isn’t in the center of the frame, our focus is on her, and not just because she’s dressed in green and everyone else in black and white. The ex-model is always the center of attention, we always wonder what statement is the Be Best spokesperson making with her latest wardrobe ensemble?
This image of Melania sitting alone at the far end of the couch, also focuses attention on who isn’t sitting next to her, her husband Donald Trump. Melania is always surrounded by Secret Service agents and personal assistants, but’s she’s a very lonely woman married to a physically repulsive and morally decrepit buffoon.
But I don’t have an ounce of sympathy for Melania, she made her own bed and she can sleep in it next to the old and ugly toad with a mushroom-shaped pecker.
Happy Birthday Melania, may your bulging bank accounts provide you with the peace and comfort that you will never receive from your narcissistic spouse.
