Donald Trump thinks it would be super iconic to call his wife, ‘Melania T.’ after another iconic First Lady – Jackie O.! However, judging by the reactions he got to the proposal on social media, it is safe to say that people are not fans of that idea!
It may also be the way he said it that set people off!
While talking about repainting Air Force One, Donald admitted that many citizens like the current design because it was created by First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.
However, as far as he’s concerned, that era is all in the past and it should be Melania’s time to shine instead now!
‘We have our own Jackie O, it’s called Melania, Melania T,’ the current president said during his interview on Fox and Friends earlier today.
It’s pretty clear that the presidential couple is fond of Jackie O., especially Melania, who’s channeled her iconic style in the past.
It was at Donald’s inauguration in January 2017 and she wore a powder blue ensemble and accessorized with matching gloves!
But the comparison between the two women sparked quite a negative response on Twitter.
‘Jackie O was the epitome of grace and beauty. She overcame a plethora of hardships and heartaches, with poise and elegance. She was an incredible First Lady and an even more marvelous woman. She balanced passions and duties, and did so with class. Do not EVER compare her to Melania,’ one outraged user wrote.
Another tweeted: ‘It’s pathetic that Trump is trying to ‘brand’ his wife ‘Melania T’ as the ‘new Jackie O’ Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis was not just a style icon— she was also responsible for the restoration of the White House. She made White House events celebrations of American art, music and culture.’
There were also some who pointed out the initial ‘O’ came after she remarried, years after her husband’s assassination. – ‘So maybe we should wait and see who Melania marries next before giving her a nickname.’ Yikes!
