Melania Trump: How FLOTUS’ key difference with Michelle Obama makes her ‘mysterious’ | World | News


Speaking to Express.co.uk, US political and cultural commentator Jadan Horyn explained how and the former First Lady’s approaches to their role in the White House are completely different. Mr Horyn argued Melania Trump’s approach is way more effective than that used by Michelle Obama when he was in the White House with husband . Mr Horyn explained: “Michelle Obama was inevitably political, she could not be separated from Barack the candidate as opposed to Barack the President. She was one of his number one campaign vouchers.

“Yes, she is the most popular former First Lady, but everyone is generally more popular the less they talk about politics.

“When they tie her to Barack Obama and Barack Obama as a politician her popularity goes down.

“So I don’t think she was effective in the same way as Melania Trump.

“Because they tried to win this very fine line between her being a mother and doing her gardening.

“It was a very kind of PR-made persona.

“Whereas, it is quite clear from Melania that this is not conducted in some massive avenue advertising process.

“It is who she is and it is who she wants to communicate to the American public.

“So to me there is an element of authenticity which is why she is so mysterious to both the left and the right.”

Mr Horyn also pointed out the contradiction of calling former US Secretary and First Lady  a “feminist” as she stood next to her husband in his support in 1998 when he was accused of sexual harassment.

“But that’s not Melania. Melania for herself has chosen and redefined the role of First Lady.

“She did it in a way that works for her, not a way that works for the left or even for the rest of the American public.”

Last month, the First Lady’s popularity surged in a YouGov poll allowing her to make huge gains at former First Lady Hillary Clinton’s expense.

Mrs Trump was voted the third most admired in America this year.

The wife of US President Donald Trump jumped seven places to received the third-best title behind former First Lady Michelle Obama and Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
