The left has made no secret of their dislike of Melania Trump and conservative commentator Michelle Malkin knows what’s behind it.
“When leftists can’t win on their ideas, they resort to marginalizing the messengers of ideology they abhor—and their mates,” the best-selling author wrote in a commentary for The Daily Signal, where she is a columnist.
“Left-wing hatred of Melania Trump is inversely proportional to flyover admiration for the first lady,” Malkin explained in the piece published Wednesday, unveiling the underlying reason why the first lady keeps liberals up at night.
Despite her successful modeling career, her entrepreneurial successes, multi-lingual talents and stunning beauty, the wife of President Donald Trump continues to be “snubbed, humiliated, and demonized by narrative control freaks,” Malkin wrote and it is based on one thing: fear.
She gave examples of the most recent attacks on the first lady:
In just the last month, late-night clown Jimmy Kimmel mocked Trump’s Slovenian accent, CNN contributor April Ryan attacked her as “not culturally American,” former Hillary Clinton spokesman Philippe Reines derided her genteel presence at former [first lady Barbara Bush’s] funeral, and horror writer Stephen King snickered at her hospitalization this week for kidney surgery.
Malkin believes there is “something deeper at work” in the way the president’s wife is treated.
“More exposure to this interesting and remarkable woman would mean more familiarity with her. More familiarity with her might mean more popularity,” the Fox News contributor wrote. “And God forbid there be more Republican women in the public eye who can compete with—and win against—the usual parade of militant kvetchers and moaners who pass themselves off as feminist role models.”
She criticized how Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama “have assailed all women who didn’t vote for their political agendas.”
“Smug Democratic divas who unleash their contempt for independent-minded women instead of working to win them over have learned nothing from the 2016 election,” she noted.
Despite the left’s agenda to shun FLOTUS, Malkin showed how nearly six in ten Americans have a positive view of their first lady.
Yet, while partisans in the political press and entertainment media work hard to stoke division against and resentment of the Trump administration, “Melania” is now among the fastest-growing baby names in the nation, according to recently released Social Security data. And a new poll by anti-Trump CNN released on Monday reported a 10 percent jump in the first lady’s favorability ratings—from 47 percent in January to 57 percent last week.
But since “women on the right threaten the cultural hegemony of the left,” according to Malkin, the marginalization will unfortunately continue.
