Why Is Melania Trump Eating Jewelry on a Magazine Cover?

It’s being called strange for more than one reason.

The latest cover of Vanity Fair’s Mexico edition shows first lady Melania Trump in a strange situation indeed — sitting at a table with a bowl of jewelry, fork in hand as if to eat the baubles.

Presumably the scene is a play on the Trumps’ wealth and extravagance. But many found the timing of the cover even stranger than the pose, given the current controversy over President Donald Trump’s plan for a wall along the Mexico border.

Business Insider explains that after Vanity Fair tweeted the cover image, commenters unleashed a “torrent of animosity,” with sentiments such as, “Apologize to Mexico for this stupidity.”

The image and article were actually repurposed from GQ, which shares a parent company with Vanity Fair, Business Insider explains.

 

Among the subjects addressed in the feature are Melania Trump’s plans to “become the new Jackie Kennedy.”

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
