Melania Trump Suing Because She Can't Grift as Effectively as FLOTUS

That seems to be her damages claim in her defamation lawsuit.
”[Mrs. Trump] had the unique, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, as an extremely famous and well-known person…to launch a broad-based commercial brand in multiple product categories, each of which could have garnered multi-million dollar business relationships for a multi-year term during which plaintiff is one of the most photographed women in the world,” the Manhattan suit says.

“These product categories would have included, among other things, apparel, accessories, shoes, jewelry, cosmetics, hair care, skin care and fragrance,” according to the $150 million filing.
Interesting, that.

Michelle Obama: "Eat healthy and exercise, kids."

Melania Trump: "Buy my shit."

If Mrs. Obama had tried to monetize her term as FLOTUS, the Right would have lost their collective minds. But, as we all know by now, the rules are different if you're a Republican.

Maybe she wants to make her own money so she can escape from Donald's clutches?

Donald's clutches...wish I could un-read that.

Ed said...

To be fair, Mrs. Obama didn't have anything to monetize in her term as FLOTUS.

His hands are pretty small, how effective are his clutches?

Thomas, you beat me to it.

Ed, wouldn't have stopped her from trying something. Remember "Billy Beer"?

B said...

TheDonald is a legitimate target for your unreasoning hate, But it is pretty cheap to go after the FLOTUS for this.

Seriously. I said the same thing to those who went after Michelle.

Civilized behavior and all that.

No, once she filed a lawsuit alleging that her brand and opportunities had been damaged, she became fair game. Just like little Ivanka is now in the crosshairs because the President is trying to bully a business into selling her fashions.

Melania is suing because she was called a (former) prostitute in print.

The money stuff in this third (I think) filing is probably an attempt to jack up potential damages to bring the publication to the negotiating table.
