No, Melania’s Christmas Selfie Was Not ‘Offensive,’ and She Did Not Deserve What Happened to Her

Melania Trump did a lot this Christmas. But perhaps nothing captured people’s attention on social media more than a cheeky tweet she made using a Snapchat filter with golden flying reindeer and wishing everyone a #MerryChristmas.



It got 80,000 likes as of this writing and was retweeted 14,000 times.

People seemed to enjoy the fun of it.

But then those on the Left made it their duty to smear Melania as a horrible First Lady for posting the innocent image.

They mocked and bullied her until the cows came home, attempting to use the innocent gesture as proof that Melania was a horrible First Lady and role model for our nation’s youth.

From Ib Times:

“Seriously Melania??? That photo is excessively TACKY!!! Zero class in this,” a critic shared, calling out the First Lady over the Christmas selfie that was shared on the official Flotus twitter and Instagram account.

“Incredibly tacky and an insult to the position of First Lady. #embarrassing #trumpban,” a second user tweeted, as someone else chimed in, “Are you the FLOTUS or a Kardashian? Good Lord.”

A critic sarcastically added, “wow! Extremely First Lady-ish! How I miss Michelle Obama!” Speaking of sarcasm, some social media users didn’t even hesitate to use harsh words to criticise the First Lady’s latest selfie.

“Why do I immediately think that this is a cover of a “Playboy” magazines?” One follower of the Flotus shared in the comments section, to which another responded, “Because it looks exactly like the cover of a Playboy Magazine. Just a guess.”

But the last laugh may be on the critics. A recent Gallup poll put Melania’s favorability rating at 54 percent so it’s not hard to see that she gets a lot of attention.

Melania and her husband, President Donald Trump are celebrating the holiday at Mar-a-Lago.

The President spent part of Christmas Eve having a teleconference with hundreds of members of all five branches of the military – Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard – praising their efforts particularly against ISIS and terrorists and wishing them a Merry Christmas.

Then he and Melania took phone calls from children across the country on the NORAD Santa Tracking line. The White House released pictures of them on the phone with the children.

Melania said they had a great time, “POTUS and I had fun helping children track Santa tonight.” “Wishing everyone a wonderful Christmas Eve,” she said.

They went to a Christmas Eve service at The Episcopal Church of Bethesda-by-the-Sea, the church where they had been married in 2005. They were greeted with open arms and received a standing ovation.

The couple also released a Christmas message to Americans.

Trump released a Christmas message on Monday as well, posting a video to Twitter in which he said: “In the season of joy, we spend time with our families, we renew the bonds of love and goodwill between our citizens and most importantly we celebrate the miracle of Christmas.

“For Christians, we remember the story of Jesus, Mary and Joseph that began more than 2,000 years ago. As the book of Isaiah tells us, for to us a child is born, to us a son is given and the government will be on his shoulders and he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. This good news is the greatest Christmas gift of all, the reason for our joy and the true source of our hope.”

Trump then sent out another message on Monday, “I hope everyone is having a great Christmas, then tomorrow it’s back to work in order to Make America Great Again (which is happening faster than anyone anticipated!)”

Looks like they had a great time!
