White House Website Promotes Melania Trump’s Modeling and Jewelry Line

From the Washington Post:

Visitors to the newly revamped White House website get more than a simple rundown of first lady Melania Trump’s charitable works and interests — they also get a list of her magazine cover appearances and details on her jewelry line at QVC.

Trump’s biography starts with traditional details such as her date of birth in her native country of Slovenia and information about her background as a model. That’s when the brief backgrounder takes a promotional turn. The website includes a lengthy list of brands that hired her as a model and several of the magazines in which she appeared, including the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.

It is not uncommon for the White House to note the accomplishments of the first lady in her official biography, but Trump’s decision to include a detailed list of her media appearances is unusual.

The site also lists the brand names of Trump’s jewelry lines sold on QVC, at a time when questions have been raised by critics about the ethical implications of the family’s business entanglements.

Telling me what I should or should not blog about will get you deleted and banned. This is my space to put whatever is on my mind and I couldn’t care less about getting more traffic. 

I don’t even care if you disagree with a post but don’t tell me not to post on a given topic. 

Civil Rights, Climate Change, and Healthcare Were All Scrubbed from the White House Website

It’s a new, scary age:

Donald Trump was just sworn in as the 45th President of the United States. Just gonna leave that there for a moment.

As part of the presidential transition, Trump’s team assumes control of WhiteHouse.gov. Before today, the “Issues” tab of the website had a section devoted to climate change, the existential threat posed to our species that a scientific consensus holds is caused by human activity. That section is completely gone with the website revamp, along with any mention of climate change whatsoever.
