Only a few and the most privileged truly understand the feeling of living and working in the inner circles of the White House. That’s especially true for people like the First Lady of the United States of America. God knows the pressure of maintaining a healthy family life and an exceptional public image can be astounding! Excelling the art of maintaining a perfect balance between both isn’t easy; just ask Hillary Clinton, Michelle Obama, and Melania Trump.
Speaking of Melania Trump, the lady who appeared to be slightly less social than her former contemporaries was known to rarely leave the White House. So much so, that the Secret Service nicknamed her Rapunzel!
Interesting ain’t it? Hop on to know why Mrs. Trump was called so.
Stephanie Grisham’s POV
Stephanie, who was a press secretary for the former president and then the Chief of Staff for Melania Trump, was in very close contact with the then First Lady, and has recently penned her experiences with her in a new book.
Grisham reveals the reason why Mrs. Trump was nicknamed after a Disney Princess was that she rarely left the confined premises of the White House. The analogy between her and the beautiful princess trapped in her luxurious tower was a little too close to be ignored. In fact, agents were requested to protect her as it allowed the family to spend more quality time together.
The Post, along with some other media outlets, got their hands on the copies of Grisham’s 352-page book, I’ll Take Your Questions Now, and turned out, the book flashed light on some interesting observations/facts. Some that might not be very well accepted by Mrs. Trump herself!
What does Melania have to say?
Melania Trump, 51, states that she’s not at all pleased with the way her former Chief of Staff has presented her in the book. For instance, personal details like Melania’s rage about her husband’s infidelity as well as her insecurities about writing and speaking English, were all laid bare for the world to see and gossip about.
As per a statement released by the office of Melania Trump, the details in the book are way too salty – a clear attempt by the former Chief of Staff to degrade the image of Trumps and redeem her own. In their opinion, she displayed an astonishingly poor performance as Press Secretary and was constantly troubled by her own family disturbances, which gave rise to her highly unprofessional behavior in the White House. They even made a strong remark by stating that by portraying this distorted image of Mrs. Trump, she intends to gain people’s sympathy and relevance along with a huge chunk of money.
To wrap it up
Popular opinion has it that Melania Trump never really showed an interest in US politics. From taking the arm of a military aide just because of his looks at her husband’s State of Union address to cropping her husband and the then US President out of her photos, the former First Lady didn’t really leave room to inspire young women. TBH, that’s not what’s expected from a First Lady! What’s your take on that?
