President Donald Trump apparently doesn't want anyone to forget that his wife Melania used to be a model. Amid allegations about a possible affair with a porn star, Trump highlighted Melania's appearance in a strange advertisement for insurance during a recent meeting.
The Republican met with Georgia insurance firm Aflac on Wednesday as part of a drive to promote his tax cuts, where he took an opportunity to remind its employees about his wife’s turn in an advert for their company.
“Your chairman I know very well and he’s done a fantastic job,” the president told Aflac Resource Manager Michael Porter, the Ledger-Enquirer reported.“He actually a long time ago hired my wife to do a big commercial, an Aflac commercial, and I think it was a successful commercial, too. So say hello to him,” Trump added.
The commercial Trump name-dropped features Melania lying on an operating table and being experimented on by scientists who are attempting to change her voice with the voice of a duck (the company’s logo) in order to “to tell the world the benefits of Aflac with sex appeal.”
At the end of the commercial, the voice change operation apparently having been a success, Melania can be seen quacking and looking shocked at her new webbed feet.
The first lady saw previous modeling shoots and old rumors resurface during her husband’s election campaign. According to tell-all book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, Melania was inconsolable when old nude photographs of her were published in The New York Post last year.
Melania opted to sue The Daily Mail in the UK after the newspaper suggested she had once worked as a paid escort during her modeling days. The lawsuit resulted in the Mail agreeing to pay the first lady damages in April 2017 and offering an apology.
Unfortunately, Your past always catches up with you. If pose nude for commercial photographers, the pictures will always re-surface. They are public domain and you knew that when you signed up for it Melania.
