First Lady Portraits Through the Years
By Kelly Riddell – The Washington Times – Tuesday, April 4, 2017
Trump Derangement Syndrome is real, folks.
The latest example is the liberal reaction to first lady Melania Trump’s official portrait, which was unveiled on Monday.
Cosmopolitan Magazine declared the photo was heavily airbrushed — Cosmo, of all sources, which heavily airbrushes many of its scantily clad cover models every month.
Mrs. Trump’s face “appeared to be heavily airbrushed,” the women’s magazine lamented, adding a bit of snark: “This soft lighting is like only the classiest ‘90s mall glamour shot photo could offer!”
Wire service Agence France-Presse reported: “Melania Trump portrait stirs controversy,” which was then carried and featured on the front-page of Yahoo News on Tuesday.
“While some commenters gushed that the first lady was ‘beyond beautiful’ and ‘gorgeous,’ others mocked the image as highly airbrushed and compared the gauzy background — a window in the White House residence — to 1990s school portrait settings,” AFP reported.
Proud to have Mrs. Trump as our first lady – just as we have in the past with other first ladies.
