Melania Trump does not make fashion faux pas, she uses clothes to punish her husband, Donald, according to Omarosa Manigault Newman.
Recently, the first lady caused an uproar by wearing a jacket with the insensitive message, “I don’t care,” to the US-Mexico border, to talk to young children who are separated from their parents.
Barron’s mother also raised eyebrows by sporting a bright pink “pussy bow” blouse to the presidential debate just after the infamous 2005 Access Hollywood tape leaked where Donald was gloating about grabbing women’s private parts.
According to Omarosa, the former model made that move to hurt and humiliate Donald who often takes wild decisions and makes bizarre comments.
In her new book, Unhinged, Omarosa explained: “It’s my opinion that Melania was forced to go to the border that day in June, essentially, to mop up her husband’s mess. She wore that jacket to hurt Trump, setting off a controversy that he would have to fix, prolonging the conversation about the administration’s insensitivity, ruining the trip itself, and trying to make sure that no one asked her to do something like that again. Not that Melania doesn’t have compassion for immigrant children; I’m sure she does. But she gladly, spitefully, wrecked her husbands’ directives to make him look foolish.”
The former White House staff member went on to say: “As a student of fashion and keenly image-conscious woman, she knows that every one of her style choices will be scrutinized and debated. Why did she wear a Gucci ‘pussy bow’ pink blouse to the presidential debate immediately after the Access Hollywood bombshell? Did she purposefully wear a Hillary Clinton-esque white pantsuit to Trump’s first State of the Union address? Did she mean to come off as out of touch and tone-dead by wearing snakeskin stiletto heels to hurricane-ravaged Texas?”
She continued with: “The messages behind her style choices aren’t always clear, but they are never accidental. Taken as a whole, all of her style rebellions have served the same purpose, and not only misdirection and distraction – strategies her husband knows all too well. I believe Melania uses style to punish her husband.”
A source told Hollywood Life that Melania uses fashion to voice her opinion and take subtle shots at Donald when they disagree on a matter.
The source claimed: “Melania is tired of being quiet and hiding inside the White House. She wanted to make it loud and clear that she really does not care for any of it. For weeks leading up to the ‘I don’t care’ jacket moment, Melania has felt frustrated, angry, and tired of being complicit to her husband’s actions.”
Omarosa was able to dominate the national conversation in the past few days in a way only her former mentor can.
