Melania Trump wins an apology

January 28, 2019

Here is your feel-good story of the day. While all the women’s magazine editors have spent more than two years acting like high school “mean girls” and refusing to put our stylish, gracious, intelligent, accomplished and beautiful First Lady on any magazine covers, the publications that have run stories on her thought it was their duty to perform character assassinations.

Well, add to her many admirable qualities her backbone.  She refuses to allow vicious lies about her and her family to stand.  Here’s her latest victory:

This isn’t the first time she’s won an apology/retraction and “substantial damages” from British media outlets that slandered her.  It's much harder here, but President Trump has talked about changing libel laws to make it easier to sue publications in America, where public figures have less legal protection. 

I would be wary of that because I’m a strong supporter of freedom of the press and the First Amendment.  The news media claim a special exemption to libel charges because they claim to be in the hallowed profession of journalism.  Still, it’s become obvious in recent years that many media outlets are no longer professional or journalism.  They’re just PR wings of the Democratic Party with no more regard for facts or truth than a British tabloid.

If they want to continue enjoying the legal protections afforded to those who are charged with telling Americans the truth, then they should get back to practicing the truth business, not the slimy racquets of slander and propaganda.

    I agree with you 100%.
    The media cannot be allowed to spread false news and accusations ie lies. There needs to be a substantial consequence if they do.

    So, who owns who? Does the media own democrats, or do democrats own media? Who is the boss there?

    Libel laws do need to change! When media, journalists and outlets attacked the Covington Catholic boys, this should be the straw that breaks the camels back.

    I also believe that sitting congressmen and women should also be responsible for their tweets regarding trying to ruin these boys' lives. They should not be exempt from the law.

    The Liberal Left are the biggest bullies that I have ever witnessed and we should be afraid for our children as they are now a target for them.

    The do not trust the media at all. When I do listen it is Fox only. It is unreal how these people are so horrible to people and they have lost their morals. Our country is the laughing stock of the world and the liberals are the scum of the earth.

    Governor Huckabee, Thank You for all you do, your God Given Overdeveloped Sense of Humor, Sharp Wit , and We love your daughter !
    My QUESTION ; can we the people
    Form a Trump Party or Party of Trump ?
    Our President's ( whom the party would be named for ) " Agenda" was crystal clear , focused , pro- saving America -- and we voted 68 million strong.
    We have proven we can - and did - fund his campaign with a million tiny to huge donations.
    Can't you imagine if we sucked the
    Trump Agenda supporters out of all the other political parties we would be Huge ! Easily selecting pure verified Trump agenda candidates.
    Even if it took Years to form , our loyalty would still be to preserving America against those who seek to destroy her.
    Thanks for your consideration
    P.S. you were my second choice after Donald Trump in 2016 !
    In Christ , Kathleen Stayton

    You are so correct, Mike. This beautiful accomplished First Lady has had to put up with more nastiness aimed at her and her family than anyone should have to endure all because she's married to a President they hate and yet this lovely lady shows more grace and class than they will ever hope to have. I no longer buy magazines because they are mostly just garbage! God Bless her and our great President.
