Actor James Woods created quite the stir last week when he made what has proved to be a spot on observation about first lady Melania Trump.
Responding to weeping late night comedian Jimmy Kimmel insulting the first lady by mocking her Slovenian accent, the outspoken conservative actor tweeted: “If the Trumps were Democrats, Melania would be on every cover of every chic women’s magazine in the world every month.”

The New York Post took a look at how Melania Trump is being treated and reported over the weekend that “not one American magazine has put the former model on its cover.”
The article noted that Mrs. Trump graced the cover of Vanity Fair Mexico in February 2017, but nothing in the U.S.
What a difference over how US magazines — not to mention the media — fell at the feet of Michelle Obama as if she was a goddess from Heaven above, slobbering over her every move, accentuating the positive while working hard to mask any and all blemishes.
Remember the fascination over her “tone arms?”
As The Post informs us, during former President Barack Obama’s two terms, his wife “appeared on at least 30 US magazine covers, three of which were Vogue.”
“She also appeared twice on the covers of Essence magazine, Time magazine, More magazine and Glamour magazine. Other covers included Redbook, InStyle, and Radar,” the paper reported.
Woods was quick to link to The Post story and note that magazine editors turn a “blind eye to Melania.”

Of all the responses to the tweet, one stood out above all others in capturing what is at play here.
“Drowning in seething hatred, the left is a smoldering cauldron spewing poisonous wafts of venom infecting the young and unenlightened,” tweeted a social media user.

A recurring theme in the reactions was who is loosing out in the politically motivated snub:

Here’s a sampling other other responses from Twitter:
She's the one that I feel bad for she has been treated so badly. Just shows us all how evil the left really is to bash a Beautiful nice and great First Lady. AND IT'S HER BIRTHDAY https://t.co/M90ekbqEPG

Probably because Melania Trump's arms and shoulders aren't as awesome as Mrs. Obama. Besides, billionaires wives are a dime a dozen these days. But a "community organizers" wife, they are rare indeed.https://t.co/GqAUOG8zrz https://t.co/JHFyu3SzIy
