Fashion magazines are basically high school cliques all grown up.
Editors wield vast amounts of power and reshape culture to suit their every whim.
Now, an iconic magazine is showing its true colors by cutting Melania Trump out of history.
The subtle, yet ferocious jabs sent Trump’s way continue long after her husband left office.
When the New York City elite gathered for the Met Gala recently, Jill Biden was front and center being honored as first lady and invited to give a speech before the event at the opening of a Vogue art exhibit.
And bystanders were quick to note that a pre-Met Gala speech was yet another honor leftist elites were careful to avoid extending to Melania Trump.
As She Knows put it, “it was clear that the ongoing snub of former First Lady Melania Trump was still in full effect.”
Michelle Obama also enjoyed the honor of opening an exhibit ahead of New York City’s most important social event back in 2014.
But Melania apparently isn’t part of the grown-up version of the mean-girls clique.
Of course, it wasn’t always that way.
Back in 2005, Melania was featured on Vogue’s cover in what was advertised as an “exclusive” scoop on Donald Trump’s new bride.
That was before her husband stormed Washington, D.C. and started draining The Swamp.
Now, the former model turned first lady is persona non-grata.
The magazine’s “First Ladies in Vogue” feature conveniently cut Melania out of high fashion history.
“According to longtime Vogue staffer and former friend Stephanie Winston Wolkoff in her tell-all book Melania and Me: The Rise and Fall of My Friendship With the First Lady, Melania was offered a feature interview, but there was no ‘guarantee that Melania would appear on the cover,’ she wrote. That may sound unfair to Trump fans, but not every First Lady was given the cover of the magazine,” She Knows reported.
Want to guess who did make the cover? Predictably, Jill Biden, Michelle Obama, and Hillary Clinton all made the cut.
Meanwhile, neither Laura Bush or Barbara Bush were given front cover real estate.
The partisan politics at play are obvious when you’re looking for them.
However, we can guess most of Vogue’s readers aren’t political scientists, but rather women looking for social signaling cues to help them gain acceptance in society.
The magazine’s snub of Republican women—especially a woman who has refused to go against her husband’s conservative take like Barbara and Laura Bush had a tendency to do—speaks loudly of what will and won’t be tolerated in society.

The Pulitzer Prize is about to get one ridiculous “woke” makeover
Radical leftism is spreading.
Fringe theories that were stranded in academia have escaped and infested the media.
Now, the Pulitzer Prize is about to get one ridiculous “woke” makeover.
The Democrats have been infiltrated by the radical Left.
Activists on the fringes have either purged moderate liberals from left-leaning power centers or cudgeled them into compliance.
Now, the radicals want control of the Pulitzer Prize.
The cult of DIE (diversity, inclusivity, and equity) has become a core belief on the Left.
So it’s no surprise that DIE has come for the establishment’s shiniest journalism prize.
Myriad leftist groups have called for news organizations to participate in a diversity survey conducted by the News Leaders Association (NLA).
The groups wrote a letter to Marjorie Miller, Administrator of the Pulitzer Prizes, that read, “We are appealing to The Pulitzer Prizes to help us improve the diversity and transparency in the news industry. On Tuesday, April 12, Nieman Lab reported that there was ‘crushing resistance’ by news organizations to participate in an annual diversity survey by the News Leaders Association. The group planned to have 2,500 organizations participate and in the end only 303 completed this important survey. That is unacceptable.”
This is the radicalistic playbook that has been effective for 50 years: attack an institution (particularly a liberal one) as bigoted in some fashion until it gives concessions.
The groups’ big ask is for diversity to be considered in awarding a Pulitzer Prize.
The letter continued, “We are asking your organization to promote this survey and reporting of demographic data by adding the following criteria to your selection process for Pulitzer Prizes in Journalism: In order to qualify for an award, organizations must provide proof of participation in the most recent general survey/census by the News Leaders Association or another industry reporting system that shares data publicly, effective 2024 (i.e., they must participate in this year’s data collection to be eligible for awards/funding in 2024).”
Hollywood already caved in this regard.
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced that soon films must meet diversity criteria in order to be considered for a Best Picture Oscar.
The Pulitzer Prize will have no choice but to meet the demands of the radical Left.
If not today, one day soon.
Liberals are defenseless against attacks from their left flank.
This tactic is how the radicals took over the Democratic Party.
NFL legend who teamed up with Ron DeSantis just put liars in the media to shame
Democrats are out to slander Ron DeSantis and anyone in his general vicinity.
Even people who are nonpartisan catch flak.
But one NFL legend who teamed up with DeSantis just put liars in the media to shame.
The Democrats need an archvillain, and Florida governor Ron DeSantis has been thrust into that role with Donald Trump off social media.
And anybody near DeSantis is the object of public smears and denunciations.
Hall of Famer NFL coach Tony Dungy found that out the hard way when he supported a piece of legislation proposed by DeSantis.
The Hill reported that, “Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) signed a new law on Monday that will support programs that encourage involved fatherhood in the state. HB 7065, a $70 million initiative, will provide resources for educational and mentorship programs to help children, fathers and families in the state through the Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) and the Department of Children and Families (DCF). DJJ will create a mentorship program to help at-risk youth through the new initiative, hosting various programs such as barbershop talks and fatherhood classes.”
Under typical circumstances, such a bill would not be controversial, but it seems that Democrats hate DeSantis more than they love government programs.
Dungy was instantly slandered by leftist journalists, but he stood his ground and pointed out that he supported a similar initiative when Barack Obama was president.
Dungy reposted an old Obama quote that read, “We know the statistics — that children who grow up without a father are five times more likely to live in poverty and commit crime; nine times more likely to drop out of schools and 20 times more likely to end up in prison.”
2 days ago I spoke on behalf of a Florida bill that supports dads & families and it offended some people. 14 yrs ago Pres Obama said the same things almost verbatim. I’m assuming people were outraged at him too. I am serving the Lord so I’ll keep supporting dads and families.🙏🏽🙏🏽 pic.twitter.com/7eIemEGe9T

In addition to appearing alongside DeSantis, Dungy is a devout Christian, which ruffles the feathers of the Left.
At the press conference, Dungy said, “This is going to be tremendous and such a good help to fathers in Florida…This bill is so important. I want to thank all of the men and women that have been behind this. It is going to allow groups like All Pro Dad and people like those here today to do great things for our fathers here in Florida.”
It didn’t take long for deranged leftists to slam both Dungy and DeSantis for promoting a bill aimed at helping childhood delinquents.
Keith Olbermann, who has completely gone insane, led the charge.

When it comes to leftists, it’s more important to hate Republicans than judge the merits of a particular piece of legislation.
Stephen Colbert used Will Smith’s Oscar meltdown to say something despicable about one Fox News reporter
The world is still reeling from Will Smith’s disgraceful episode at the Academy Awards.
He was somehow allowed to march onstage, slap Chris Rock, curse on live television, and later collect an award.
And Stephen Colbert used Will Smith’s Oscar meltdown to say something despicable about one Fox News reporter.
Will Smith embarrassed himself when he attacked comedian Chris Rock at the Academy Awards after Rock told a benign joke about Jade Pinkett Smith’s bald head.
Since the shocking incident, entertainment celebrities have almost universally condemned the episode.
But late night “comedian” Stephen Colbert made light of the incident to attack Fox News’s Peter Doocy, one of the few members of the White House press corps that asks challenging questions.
Colbert showed a clip of Biden responding to Doocy’s valid questions about the potential use of chemical weapons.
Colbert said he would make an “exception” for Doocy to get publicly slapped.
— Tom Elliott (@tomselliott) March 30, 2022
Doocy’s question was incredibly relevant.
When Biden was asked about the U.S. response to Russia’s hypothetical use of chemical weapons in Ukraine, he said NATO would respond “in kind.”
Up until five minutes ago, that was understood to mean that there would be a retaliation with equal force.
But the use of chemical weapons is in direct contravention of the Geneva Protocol of 1925 that explicitly bans their usage.
To act as if Doocy deserved to be slapped for asking that question is truly absurd.
Biden’s comments were such an unforced error that National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan had to publicly state that the “United States has no intention of using chemical weapons, period, under any circumstances.”
Biden has developed a nasty habit of saying something outlandish, then defiantly rebuking anyone who questioned the meaning of his exact words.
He did the same thing when he called for regime change in Moscow.
During a recent speech in Poland, Biden said, “For God’s sake, [Putin] cannot remain in power.”
Later, the administration and Biden himself walked back the statement and scoffed at the idea that he actually was calling for regime change.
Someone should’ve told neocon Bill Kristol and the Lincoln Project grifters regime change was off the table because they were overjoyed by Biden’s line, comparing it favorably to Ronald Reagan’s “tear down this wall” speech.
Apparently Biden needs a mind reader who can interpret his true meaning and explain it to the American people.
Regardless, establishment shills like Stephen Colbert will defend the regime and suggest that reporters should be slapped for questioning it.
These are the same leftists that freaked out at the sight of a meme of Donald Trump body-slamming the CNN logo.
