Partisans Sift Through Melania Trump’s Old Twitter Pics for Political Clues
The world is naturally curious about the famously tight-lipped First Lady Melania Trump, who apart from a number of public speeches and appearances, mostly makes headlines for being away from the center of her husband’s presidency.
Rather than immediately moving into the White House following President Donald Trump’s inauguration in January, Melania has instead chosen to stay in New York City to allow Barron, the young son she shares with the president, to complete his school year.
A White House official has confirmed that Melania and Barron, who is now 11, will move into the White House this summer to join President Trump. But Melania, media-trained and familiar with life in front of a camera, has offered little insight into her personal opinions and perspective, regardless of geography.
A recent article on Medium attempted to explore Melania’s viewpoint by analyzing her collection of Twitter photography, snapped and uploaded from all around the world: snow-covered mountains, the sandy beaches of the Caribbean, a fields-eye-view of the Super Bowl.
Though the Medium author paints a somewhat sinister portrait of Melania’s life through photos, it’s an interesting concept. Melania hasn’t uploaded a new photo since a five days before President Trump announced his candidacy in 2015, but the cell phone shots offer a rare glimpse into how the former model views the world; it is one often seen from the stratosphere or through windows of planes and penthouses.
The photographs she takes of her son and husband are usually from the back, or lack a full frame. In an existence dripping with glamour and excess, Melania also takes the time to enjoy a homemade pizza like the rest of us do.
It’s debatable—and highly partisan—to read more into the photographs, but this beauty is in the eyes of the beholders by the nature of her husband’s position.
Take a glimpse at some of her shots below.
