Here we are again.
Once more the country is embroiled in another shower from the shit storm known as Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. Over the last few weeks, Trump has done everything from entering into a war of words with the family of a war hero, to pleading for blacks to vote for him because “what do they have to lose”.
Hearing about this pile of over-tanned shit, in some way or another, has definitely grown to be quite cumbersome for the last year and change. However, this time the focal point of controversy has been placed on the first lady of plagiarism herself, Melania Trump.
An article published last Friday by the popular British website, Dailymail.com, calls into question Mrs. Trump’s past and how she managed to manuever her way to America and Donald Trump’s life.
According to the site, which cited a story in Suzy, a Slovenian magazine, a modeling agency who represented Donald Trump allegedly also doubled as a popular escort service in New York City. They set the scene of a night in the Kit Kat Club in 1998 where an old billionaire in Trump, dumps his trophy date for the evening after meeting and courting Melania. That shit doesn’t surprise me at all; doesn’t even raise an eyebrow. For years I’ve heard and read stories about young girls from the Eastern Bloc who get involved in “modeling”, which may or may not lead to prostitution. These measures are carried all in the hopes of leaving their home country and hitting greener pastures and the gold paved streets of Los Angeles or the Big Apple.
“On the one hand they the girls pretended to be models, but they principally earned money as elite escorts…They even had two composite cards (presentation cards held by each model) — with two photos and basic information such as measurements, eye and hair colour, and agency details…One composite card was for the modeling business, and the other one for the sex business, as it stated whether they prefer the older men and described their abilities in the bedroom. What Melania’s [composite card] looked like only the people involved know, but it is no coincidence she got a rich husband.” – Suzy Magazine
The hustle goes as follows, get to America, get on the scene, and marry a rich old man who doesn’t want to fuck as much as he requires a beautiful trophy for his arm. Citizenship is then given and the sweet life of opulence and luxury is provided until divorce, but that’s another tangent for another day.
The game itself sounds simple enough, and although every case isn’t the same and neither are everyones motivations, the phenomenon isn’t anything recent. In fact is run on the same paradigm for decades. Not to mention, Donald Trump has shown an extreme penchant for girlfriends and brides that could be considered of the “mail ordered” variety
Bojan Pozar, writer of the story, also allleges that this initial meeting between Trump and Melania was completely for show as Trump had actually met her some three years prior, which places Donald Trump’s marital fidelity to Marla Maples and the status of Melania’s work Visa at the time into question.
“I don’t know what sort of relationship they had but I do know they were in touch from my conversations with modelling agents while researching the book. After 1995, Trump helped Melania with her modelling career” -Bojan Pozar
If this is the case, considering Trump’s hardened stance on immigration, these revelations could be the last few nails in the coffin of the Trump presidential campaign run. Throughout all of his outrageousness, no one would have thought that a few naked photo’s that have recently surfaced of Melania and her possible twenty year visa issue would be his own final undoing.
Sensing that this could be the end, Melania has taken a page out of Donald’s book and resorted to disputatious scare tactics to savage what’s left of her portion of the Trump name and campaign. Donald has had a long and fickle history with suing anyone who dares speak his name in vain. In 2011, Trump sued author Timothy L. O’Brien in a $5 billion defamation case because O’Brien reported that Trump’s true net worth was really between $150 to $250 million dollars as opposed to Trump’s claims of billions; that case was dismissed.
In 2013, Trump sued comedian Bill Maher for $5 million after Maher stated on television that he himself would give $5 million dollars to charity if Trump could produce a birth cirtificate that proves his mother didn’t mate with an orangutan. Trump then proved his dad wasn’t an ape, claimed that Maher wasn’t frothcoming as he believed the $5 million dollar stipulation was legally binding; this case was also dismissed.
Then in 2014, he sued and settled with former Miss Pennsylvania Sheena Monnin in another $5 million dollar arbitration after she made claims that the Miss America Pageant was rigged.
Just to be clear, Trump spends a ridiculous amount of time dealing with legal matters. In an analysis by USA Today published in this past june found that over the last 30 years, Trump and his businesses have been involved in 3,500 legal cases in U.S federal and state courts, which is an unparalled number for a U.S presidential candidate.
Melania Trump has taken the litigious baton and is off and running. She has placed certain online and television news organizations “on notice… for making false and defamatory statements about her supposedly having been an “escort”.
In the reporting business, “on notice” is a code used to prompt news outlets to ready themselves for possible retractions, removal of stories, and subsequent apologies. She has enlisted the services of high profile lawyer Charles Harder, who recently represented Hulk Hogan’s racist ass in a winning a $140 million invasion of privacy suit against the online company, Gawker Media. In the end, the suit effectively killed the site Gawker.com who just shut down this past Monday afternoon for good.
All in all, we may never get the answer’s to the questions of Melania Trump’s checkered past. However, if all things hold true to course and Trump keeps fucking up the way he has been, we won’t feel much of a need to care come November.
