Melania Trump ranks third most admired woman in US, beats Hillary Clinton

Despite years of crude attacks on her and her family by congressional Democrats, Hollywood and the mainstream media, first lady Melania Trump is now the third most admired woman in the United States.

Meanwhile, her husband, President Donald Trump, is the second most admired man in the U.S.

These numbers are based on YouGov’s “America’s Most Admired 2019” survey. The only people who outperformed Melania were former first lady Michelle Obama and Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. The only individual to outperform the president was former President Barack Obama.

The first lady outperformed former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the failed 2016 Democrat presidential nominee who maligned all of her husband’s supporters as “deplorables,” by five spots.

She also outperformed billionaire celebrity Oprah Winfrey, gay talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, former Bush administration official Condoleeza Rice and former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley.

The president meanwhile outperformed former Vice President Joe Biden, the 2020 contender whom many believe stands the highest chance of defeating Trump at the ballot box next year.

What makes the Trumps’ YouGov numbers particularly impressive are the relentless attacks they have and continue to face from so-called “mainstream” America — i.e., those elitists with influence who think their loud, belligerent voices represent middle America. FYI, their voices certainly don’t.

Day in and day out, Melania and her family are harshly criticized by mainstream voices over virtually everything. These voices have called for the first lady’s immigration status to be revoked and for her to deported to Slovenia:

They’ve mocked her Slovenian accent:


They’ve even made domestic violence jokes about her.

“And finally, after not being seen for 25 days, Melania has reappeared following her kidney surgery,” failed Netflix comedian Michelle Wolf said in one of her monologues last year.

“Some people are saying this is Melania’s cover for plastic surgery but, I don’t buy that. Her husband obviously loves her for who she is. Whatever really happened with Melania, I genuinely hope it doesn’t come out that Donald hurt her,” she continued, adding “that’s bad” because “then we couldn’t make fun of her anymore.”

These constant attacks eventually led to a stunning moment last year when the first lady wore a jacket that bore the logo “I really don’t care. Do u?” while boarding a plane in Maryland hours after visiting a detention center in Texas for illegal alien children.

At the time, notable left-wingers inside and outside of the media rushed to make it the focus of their lives and falsely accuse the first lady of wearing it while en route to see the children:

It turned out that all of these haters helped prove her point.

In an ABC News interview months later in October of that year, she revealed that she’d worn the jacket to send a message to the left.

“You know, I often asking myself, if I would not wear that jacket, if I will have so much media coverage,” she said. “And it’s obvious I didn’t wear the jacket for the children. I wore the jacket to go on the plane and off the plane.”

And it was for the people and for the left-wing media who are criticizing me. And I wanna show them that I don’t care. You could criticize whatever you wanna say, but it will not stop me to do what I feel is right.

Her point had been that no matter what she does, she’ll always face criticism. Speaking of which, how do you suppose they’re responding to this year’s YouGov results? If you guessed that they’re mocking her for being slightly outperformed by Michelle Obama, you guessed correctly.

But mock and complain all they want, at the end of the day she’s still the second most admired woman in America, so sorry leftists, but Melania gets the last laugh.
