Dripping in Diamonds

Tensions are running high right now between the Trumps and our bordering country Mexico and fuel could have just been (indirectly) added to the fire by our new first lady. Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto cancelled his meeting earlier this week with President Trump amid disputes on who will pay for the wall President Trump promised Americans.

Well, as President Trump proposes a 20% tax on Mexican imports to pay for the wall instead, his foreign beauty of a wife will appear on the cover of the February issue of Vanity Fair Mexico. In true-to-billionaire form, the image chosen features Melania twirling diamonds around a fork as if they were spaghetti.

In an online article from The Guardian, Mexican author and columnist Guadalupe Loaeza, refers to the feature as a “lack of sensitivity on part of the publisher.” He says, “I started reading this and I couldn’t finish it. I didn’t want to know anything about the wife of our country’s No 1 enemy.”
