Who is Me­la­nia?

Vocable (Anglais) - - Société -

Me­la­nia Trump may be one of the most enig­ma­tic first la­dies the coun­try has ever had. She is re­pea­ted­ly des­cri­bed by jour­na­lists as “an in­ten­se­ly pri­vate first

la­dy” (The New York Times). Ac­cor­ding to Kate An­der­sen Bro­wer, a chro­ni­cler of first la­dies, “people are ob­ses­sed with her, be­cause we know so lit­tle about her [...] She is ve­ry self-pos­ses­sed and I don't think she wor­ries about plea­sing people.”

Un­like pre­vious first la­dies, she has a small staff, — 10 people, com­pa­red with more than 25 for Mi­chelle Oba­ma or Lau­ra Bush — and she pu­bli­cly op­po­sed her hus­band on se­ve­ral oc­ca­sions. For ins­tance, in Au­gust, hours af­ter Do­nald Trump in­sul­ted bas­ket­ball star Le­Bron James’ in­tel­lect on Twit­ter, she is­sued a sta­te­ment to sup­port the ath­lete’s work with chil­dren.
