The Washington Post is at it again. This time, their PowerPost blog has taken to criticizing the Trump administration for highlighting First Lady Melania Trump’s accomplishments on the White House website.
Her biography starts with traditional details, such as her date of birth in her native country of Slovenia and information about her background as a model. That’s when the brief backgrounder takes a promotional turn. The website includes a lengthy list of brands that hired her as a model and several of the magazines in which she appeared, including the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.
It is not uncommon for the White House to note the accomplishments of the first lady in her official biography, but Trump’s decision to include a detailed list of her media appearances and branded retail goods is unusual.
Granted, Melania Trump’s resume is a bit different compared to that of, well, pretty much any other first lady, but the Post seems bent on making every molehill of detail from her life into a mountain.
The site also touches on the previously controversial subject of Melania Trump’s university background.
“She would pursue a degree at the University of Ljubljana in Slovenia, but pause her studies to advance her modeling career in Milan and Paris before moving to New York in 1996,” the site reads.
Brit Hume has weighed in on his opinion of the story:
What a chickens**t story: https://t.co/Lt8kWbs1aG

Don’t forget that Hume has, like so many of the rest of us, been critical of Donald Trump in the past, but in the wake of the inauguration, he has been willing to call out the “Trump Derangement Syndrome” on the left. So you know he had to be angry to self-censor his tweet.
At least he’s not holding back on what he thinks.
