JUST IN: New York Post Releases MORE Nude Melania Trump Pictures, ‘Lesbian’ Theme This Time

-

The New York Post has released several new pictures from Melania Trump’s modeling career this time featuring her posing with another woman. It’s a rather interesting image considering Trump’s status as recent status as a born-again Christian and the fact that his party has produced the most anti-LGBT platform in it’s history.

The pictures themselves show Melania posing with Swedish model Emma Eriksson. They were taken by French photographer Jarl Ale de Basseville who felt that his work celebrated the freedom of women and should not be considered pornographic.

 ‘This is beauty and not porn. I am always shocked by the porn industry because they are destroying the emotion and the essence of purity and simplicity.

…I think it is important to show the beauty and freedom of the woman, and I am very proud of these pictures because they celebrate Melania’s beauty’

The pictures are certainly not the standard fare for a First Lady and, while there is certainly nothing wrong with modelling work, it’s more than bit odd to see a potential First Lady naked with another woman. It won’t change how we vote, but there are probably some conservative Christians who are less than thrilled at these images.

Between this and her speech at the Republican National Convention, we can’t help but feel a bit sorry for Melania Trump. She is clearly unprepared for this role and never expected to be thrust into it when she married Trump. Honestly we don’t even think Trump ever expected to run for president let alone become a major party’s nominee.

The content of the pictures aside, there is one other interesting aspect to them and that is the source. The New York Post is owned by Rupert Murdoch who also owns Fox News and the Wall Street Journal.  Murdoch and his media empire have thrown their support being the Republican nominee so it is kind of odd that they are publishing pictures that could alienate some of Trump’s supporters.

A lot of people might find these kinds of pictures to be a non-issue. It isn’t like Melania Trump’s modelling career will have any impact on her husband’s ability to govern the country. That being said, a lot of Trump’s support comes from Evangelical conservatives who might feel that such pictures are inappropriate for the First Lady. That’s why it’s so odd that a Murdoch-owned publication published these pictures because they can only hurt Trump. That doesn’t mean they will hurt him, but they probably won’t do anything to help him either.

These pictures are all over the internet and numerous news organizations are discussing them. For now. In about a month, probably less, it’s likely that no one will care about what Trump’s wife did 25 years ago. It’s highly possible that the New York Post published them now to simply deal with the controversy early. If these pictures had been released a week or so before the election they might have had an impact. As it stands, we’ll likely all have forgotten about Melania Trump’s modelling career long before it’s time to vote.
