Melania on media

When Donald Trump announced that he was running for president back in June 2015, he did so on the floor of Trump Tower with his family standing right behind him. The consensus at first was that Trump was not too serious about running, and was possibly only doing so to help boost the ratings on his reality show. However, as time moved on the former host of "The Apprentice" gained popularity he was able to ride that momentum to the GOP nomination at the Republican National Convention.

It was at the convention where Melania Trump was given his first time to shine in the form of a speech in primetime. Despite getting positive reviews upon first glance, Melania quickly received criticism after it was revealed that her speech was partly plagiarized from one given by Michelle Obama years earlier. Since then, Melania has kept a relatively low profile as she's kept her distance from the president's policies and rhetoric, and instead focused on her own plans, including an controversial cyberbullying campaign. After an article in Vanity Fair came out on Sunday reporting that Melania never wanted to be the first lady, an offical statement was released in response on November 27.

In a statement released on Monday afternoon, Melania Trump took a page out of Donald Trump's book by attacking the so-called "liberal media." "Once again part of the liberal media, this time Vanity Fair, has written a story riddled with unnamed sources and false assertions," Melania wrote.

The first lady went to label Vanity Fair "shameful" for writing "salacious and false stories" about her views on being the first lady.

The statement continued, suggesting that the media turn their attention to Melania Trump's "positive work as First Lady," as well as being a "supportive wife and mother." In conclusion, Melania said she was "honored" to serve in the role.

While Melania Trump defends herself from an article in Vanity Fair, Donald Trump spent his morning lashing out at the the rest of the media.

In an early morning tweet, the president called for a "fake news trophy" to be awarded to the news outlet that publishes the most misleading stories about him, though he made sure to note that Fox News shouldn't be in consideration.
