Melania Trump

by -

First Lady Melania Trump triumphed in her lawsuit against the Daily Mail for writing a scandalous story she says was completely false. Trump will be paid about $2.9 in damages by the news outlet. The settlement was announced in a joint statement from rump’s lawyers and the Daily Mail.

The story, albeit false, was published back in August 2016, and claimed that the former model had also previously worked as an escort. The Daily Mail later retracted the story and issued an apology when Melania filed a lawsuit in September, claiming damages worth $150 million. The lawsuit was later moved from Maryland to New York.

“We accept that these allegations about Mrs. Trump are not true and we retract and withdraw them. We apologize to Mrs. Trump for any distress that our publication caused her,” a statement from the Daily Mail said.

Melania Trump also filed a lawsuit against the Daily Mail in the UK. The settlement disclosed on Wednesday, settles all her claims against the publication regarding the false story.

While the Daily Mail is a tabloid newspaper in Britain, it also has a significant readership in the US with its digital publication.

The first lady also tweeted statements of apologies from other publications and news outlets that had published the story in August, after she filed the lawsuit.

“Yesterday, Aug. 21, 2016, we published a story sourced from multiple outlets about Melania Trump’s past employment,” the Bipartisan Report’s statement said.  “After publishing, it was brought to our attention that many of the statements made by sources were not fully confirmed by audio or video tape and are therefore hearsay. Aside from the facts not being 100 percent accurate, we deeply regret reporting on a story of such a ‘low brow’ nature.”

The Inquisitr also penned an apology to Mrs. Trump, “While Inquisitr writers did not generate said rumors, which alleged Melania Trump previously earned money as an escort, the writer in question was not diligent in fact-checking or maintaining a healthy distance between innuendo and fact.”

Melania Trump has often been a target of slurs and accusations from the left. The rapper Bow Wow, in March, made a shockingly offensive threat to the first lady.

Melania Trump

Melania Trump is a beautiful woman and spent many years of her life modeling, but has the New York Post gone too far by publishing nude exclusive photos on two front page editions?

Over the years, the New York Post has sold a lot of papers with Trump on the cover. They wrote about his divorces, business dealings and love life and even endorsed Donald in the election.

Despite the “endorsement” the Rupert Murdoch-owned tabloid paper ran two nude photos of Melania Trump.

The photos were on the Sunday and Monday editions and one ran with stars covering her woman parts with a headline that read, “The Ogle Office”.

Monday morning, the Post ran another front page attack with a picture of Melania being held by another naked woman with the headline, “Ménage a Trump”.

The New York Post is embarking down the same road that liberals have fought for years.

Ironically in the same year that the first woman was nominated by a major political party, the wife of the other political party is being “shamed” on the front page of papers.

The pictures were taken 22 years ago when Melania was 25 and working as a professional model.

A spokesman for the Trump campaign said there was “nothing to be embarrassed about with the pictures. She’s a beautiful woman.”

The campaign is brushing the pictures aside and moving on, but the question still remains, did the New York Post go too far by publishing nude pictures of Donald Trump’s wife?

Some people think so.

Some are angry, but now some are demanding for fairness and want the Post to publish photos of Bill.

Despite fierce disagreements during this election, I think we all can agree we don’t want to see nude Bill Clinton photos on the cover of any magazine.

What do you think; did the New York Post go to far in publishing the naked pictures of Melania? Let us know in the comments below.

Republican Convention

In the home of the Rock’N’Roll Hall of Fame, Republicans have descended on Cleveland to nominate their own reality star for president and the process is unlike any convention in history.

To start the day off, there was an unusual commotion that took the Internet by storm last night. Stephen Colbert, the guy that took over for David Letterman and is tanking in the ratings, decided to take over the mic at the convention.

Stephen Colbert, dressed as a character from the Hunger Games movies, stormed the stage and started the “Hunger for power games”. He was then quickly escorted off the stage.

Here is a video that captured the moment.

When the convention really kicked off, celebrities like Duck Dynasty’s Willie Robertson, Happy Days start Scott Baio got the crowd excited about supporting Donald.

Most of the speakers spoke directly to the theme of the night; “Make America Safe Again”. People like Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell, and veterans activist Jason Beardsley gave moving and passionate speeches.

One of the more powerful speeches came from former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani.

Rudy was adamant about the compassion of Donald Trump and revealed that Donald gave to many in the city that were in need anonymously. He said he is tired of the defamation of character coming from the left. The Donald Trump that Rudy knows is “a good man”.

The night ended with Melania Trump speaking and winning over the crowd and pundits on cable news. Then this morning, we find out that large parts of her speech were stolen almost directly from Michelle Obama’s speech in 2008.

Despite how well Melania did last night, she is taking a beating today on cable news and especially from the every hateful trolls on social media.

See the similarities for yourself below.

The speech’s similarities are striking and somebody is going to have to answer to this, but it will pass soon.

Outside of the convention the protests were largely local white college students and there were only two arrests. Traditionally, the protests are worse on the final night, but nothing real noteworthy from the protestors.

The stage is shiny; the show had star appeal and a little bit of drama. It was what we expected.

Day two we will see Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan, Dr. Ben Carson, Kimberlin Brown and for the first time, Donald Trump Jr. will take the stage at the end of the night. The theme for the second day is , “Make America Work Again”.

If you are looking for a quick recap of the speeches, here is a good montage put together by the LA Times.

What were your favorite parts of the first day? Let us know in the comments below.
