Melania Trump is many things. She was an immigrant into the US, she was a successful model, and she’s an outspoken advocate for her husband, the Republican Presidential candidate, Donald Trump. That last one is a problem for people on the left to grasp, so they’ve resorted to attacking her from everything from her previous modeling career to her speech writer’s choice of words.
But this time it’s a little different. This time, the Daily Mail, a liberal UK-based publication, made allegations that Melania Trump was an elite sex worker, also known as an escort or prostitute, when she was in her 20s, a claim that is, by any account, a bald faced lie. Not only is this over the line of responsible journalism, but it’s absolute slander and deserving of a legal penalty.
According to Western Journalism,
Last week the Daily Mail and a few other outlets published a story suggesting that Melania Trump worked as an escort.
The GOP nominee’s wife has signified she intends to fight back against such claims in the same hard-hitting style as her husband, engaging Charles Harder as her attorney. Harder was Hulk Hogan’s lawyer in the former wrestler’s successful lawsuit against Gawker.
Harder on Monday issued a statement on behalf of Melania Trump.
“Mrs. Trump has placed several news organizations on notice of her legal claims against them, including Daily Mail among others, for making false and defamatory statements about her supposedly having been an ‘escort’ in the 1990s,” Harder said in an email.
“All such statements are 100% false, highly damaging to her reputation, and personally hurtful. She understands that news media have certain leeway in a presidential campaign, but outright lying about her in this way exceeds all bounds of appropriate news reporting and human decency,’ the statement said.
Prior to the Daily Mail article’s publication, British news organizations had been warned not to publish the allegations.
Melania Trump noted that some who published the escort story have retracted it.
Had this happened to Hillary Clinton, she would’ve painted this as sexism or whatever -ism she’s parroting that day. However, since it’s the successful wife of a successful Republican, the media will do anything they can to destroy not only her reputation moving forward, but assassinate her character, which up to now has been nothing short of amazing.
I hope Melania shows these liberal chumps that lies don’t go far when you have the truth on your side.
