Numerous reports have recently surfaced that First Lady Melania Trump hired an exorcist to cleanse the White House and remove all the pagan idols and demon artifacts from the Clinton and Obama years. Did she really have a pastor anoint the residence with oil and prayer?
The story is the result of an interview Pastor Paul Begley did with internet radio host Sheila Zilinsky where he claimed a literal exorcism took place in the White House between the time Barack and Michelle Obama left the building and when the Trumps entered on Inauguration Day in January 2017.
The pastor refused to reveal his specific source and instead said that it came from someone close to those who work in the White House.
“I was not there, but a close source to those working in the White House revealed to me that the ‘Spiritual Cleaning’ did take place before the First Lady would feel comfortable living at the White House,” said Begley.
He went on to claim that the First Lady had all religious artifacts from previous administrations removed except for one cross on the wall. The White House also established prayer meetings for prayer and devotions.
But, according to Snopes.com, this is all completely false. Stephanie Grisham, a spokeswoman for Mrs. Trump, says that it is “not true in any way.”
Since becoming the FLOTUS, things haven’t been super easy for Mrs. Trump, especially when it comes to the fashion world. All of the major women’s magazines have avoided putting her on the cover, and her husband’s politics may be to blame.
In past administrations, national publications have splashed the First Lady all over their pages. For example, Vogue put Michelle Obama on its cover just four months into her husband’s presidency. And during his eight years in office, she appeared on the cover a total of three times.
Obama also graced the covers of Good Housekeeping, Essence, and Glamour.
The crowd at The National Portrait Gallery, which included former Vice President Joe Biden and Smithsonian patron Steven Spielberg, audibly gasped as former First Lady @michelleobama and her husband, former President @barackobama, joined the painters @asherald and @kehindewiley in unveiling their official portraits, which, by Washington standards, are two of the most anticipated works of art in years.

Hillary Clinton made the cover of Vogue during her husband’s time in the White House, and Laura Bush appeared on the cover of People and the Ladies Home Journal.
Of course, Mrs. Trump is a former model, and she would add beauty and glamour to any magazine cover, but her absence from magazine covers could be more than politics. It may be because of her desire for privacy.
Last year, Anna Wintour, the editor-in-chief of Vogue said that she wouldn’t treat Melania Trump any different than the other First Ladies. Yet, she has not been featured in the fashion magazine.
