Donald Trump’s former fashion model wife, Melania, had a heated reaction to a new GQ profile of her, accusing the magazine of “disingenuous reporting.”
Eschewing her husband’s favorite social media outlet, Twitter, Mrs. Trump took to Facebook to denounce the article and the journalist behind it.
“The article published in GQ today is yet another example of the dishonest media and their disingenuous reporting,” she wrote.
Published Wednesday, the piece, “Melania Trump on Her Rise, Her Family Secrets, and Her True Political Views: ‘Nobody Will Ever Know,'” featured an interview with the potential first lady, but apparently delved a little too deep into her Slovenian past.
The article included a revelation about a secret half-brother and a focus on Melania’s father, Viktor Knavs, and his striking resemblance to husband Donald Trump.
“Indeed, if you look at photos of Viktor Knavs and Donald Trump side by side, you wouldn’t be surprised at the comparison. Donald is just five years younger than his father-in-law,” Ioffe wrote.
The analogy appeared to strike a nerve with the Republican front-runner’s Slovene-American wife.
“Julia Ioffe, a journalist who is looking to make a name for herself, clearly had an agenda when going after my family,” Mrs. Trump added. “There are numerous inaccuracies in this article including certain statements about my family and claims on personal matters.”
She referred to the focus on her parents as “unfair scrutiny” and called on the media “to cover me fairly and be respectful of my family’s privacy.”
Heidi Cruz is sure to concur.
