Melania has been scrutinized heavily since becoming a First Lady. Recently, her "Be Best" slogan for her anti-bullying campaign was heavily criticized.

 “I think a really interesting story would be Melania Trump. You would sort of film with her in this kind of gilded cage that she inhabits. There’s something of ‘could she have known what she was signing on for?’ Did she just think she was marrying a billionaire, who she thought was perhaps quite funny, and interesting?" said Theroux.   

He added, “Maybe not physically attractive, but that he could provide her with certain lifestyle, introduce her to a world that was interesting? And then now, she’s a prisoner of – I mean, I’m speaking hypothetically because we don’t really know, do we – but she’s a metaphorical prisoner of that lifestyle.”

HEAVY SCRUTINY

Melania has been scrutinized heavily since becoming a First Lady. Recently, her "Be Best" slogan for her anti-bullying campaign was heavily criticized, with her former adviser calling the catchphrase “illiterate.”

The FLOTUS, according to sources familiar with the conversation, initially thought about “Children First,” as reported by Vanity Fair.

But the 48-year-old First Lady feared that it was too similar to her husband’s “America First” branding.

Melania’s former senior strategist and adviser Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, known to have a straightforward personality, reportedly advised her not to use the “Be Best” slogan.

MELANIA'S CONTROVERSIAL JACKET

This was not the only time Melania ignored the advice of her group of campaign strategists. She was recently spotted wearing a controversial jacket while visiting child immigrants last year.

Melania traveled to the Mexico border for a surprise visit to children who were forcefully separated from their families. 

She wore a Zara jacket for the occasion, with the slogan “I really don't care, do u” emblazoned on the back. It was deemed “a bizarre and insensitive choice.”
