Just like a subliminal advertising campaign, the Trump administration inserted a promotional line to the whitehouse.gov website, which can be found on First Lady Melania Trump’s biography, which also functions as a modeling resume and advertisement for her jewelry.
While the first few sentences feature the typical biographical info, the site specifically plugs her jewelry line: “In April 2010, Melania Trump launched her own jewelry collection, “Melania™ Timepieces & Jewelry on QVC.”
Another bizarre feature is the exhaustive list of her many media appearances and magazine cover:
“As a model, Melania has appeared in high-profile ad campaigns and worked with some of the top photographers in the fashion industry, including Patrick Demarchelier, Helmut Newton, Arthur Elgort, Ellen Von Unwerth, Peter Arnell, Antoine Verglas and Mario Testino. She has graced the covers of Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, British GQ, Ocean Drive, Avenue, In Style, and New York Magazine. Her major layouts include the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, Allure, Vogue, Self, Glamour, Vanity Fair, and Elle. In addition, Melania has appeared in numerous television commercials and television programs, including co-hosting The View with Barbara Walters.”
This comes on the same day that all mention of climate change and pages that affirm the federal government’s commitment to helping the LGBT community and people with disabilities were removed from all government websites.
The odd development is taking place as two separate campaigns to impeach Donald Trump were launched on the grounds of his refusal to separate his business assets from his new responsibilities as President of the United States.
