Being Melania: Part Two


Yesterday we showed you the first part of the US television network ABC’s interview series with Melania Trump.

Anyone who thought America’s First Lady was some sort of pushover former fashion model has to think again. Her replies to interviewer Tom Llamas were firm and confident. The clip he cut to from Barbara Walters’s interview with the Presidential couple showed her to be confident and gracious against her more socially awkward husband. I’d have little doubt about who is in charge of that relationship these days.

In the second part we see how a woman who had the least preparation of any First Lady in history – a political outsider – has stepped up to her new role. She wisely maintained a low profile and waited to announce her own cause, Be Best, ‘an awareness campaign dedicated to the most valuable and fragile amongst us, our children’ about withstanding cyber bullying. On which the media and Tom Llamas leapt: ‘Is it tough when your husband goes on Twitter and he’s also been known to name-call, and be so aggressive – and to bully other people?’

It took some assurance and skill to answer that with honesty. And she did.
