Ryan Seacrest just gave conservatives two big reasons to SKIP ‘New Year’s Rockin’ Eve’ this year
President Donald Trump is not shy about sharing any opinion that enters his cranium, and recently he sounded off about something he knows intimately: his family, models and entertainment.
In fact, all three are rolled into one person – first lady Melania Trump.
On Christmas Day, the president lit into lifestyle magazines, retweeting a story about how the major glossies had shunned his wife for the last four years. “The greatest of all time,” Trump tweeted of his better half. “Fake News!”
Fox News noted this week that while Michelle Obama appeared on the cover of Glamour, Vogue and such a dozen times, Melania garnered zilch. Melania Trump, now 50, began modeling at 16, and besides working for top fashion designers in Paris, Milan and New York, she also made the covers of Harper’s Bazaar, Vanity Fair, GQ (in which she posed nude) and the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.
The greatest of all time. Fake News! https://t.co/jiWjLrynQW

But the entertainment industry, which once embraced and promoted Donald Trump, continues to show its disdain for the Trumps down to the end.
Fox News reported Wednesday that Joe and “Dr.” Jill Biden will join host Ryan Seacrest for the broadcast of “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve” on Thursday night.
“In a year marked with many challenges, we are honored that President-Elect Joe Biden and Dr. Biden will join America’s most-watched tradition — ‘Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve’ — to share an inspiring message as we come together to close out 2020 and look ahead with hope to 2021,” Amy Thurlow, president of dick clark productions, and Craig Erwich, president of ABC Entertainment, said in a joint statement.
At this point four years ago, Seacrest welcomed Luke Bryan, Wiz Khalifa, Demi Lovato, Carrie Underwood and One Direction to Times Square to ring in the new year. The Trumps, of course, were not invited.
Moreover, the ant-Melania brigades started showing their proclivities just days after the election.
For instance, the fashion magazine L’OFFICIEL featured Jill Biden with a picture spread under the headline promoting her “elegant and classic style.” Vogue wondered, “:What will Jill Biden wear in the White House?” An article by InStyle was particularly telling, with a headline that stated “Jill Biden’s Fashion Will Tell a Different Story of America,” over a photo montage of Jackie Kennedy, Michelle Obama and Biden boasting big smiles, and Melania Trump’s back. The Daily Mail of London noted “The Jill Biden effect!” adding that the “Incoming First Lady’s $5,690 Oscar de la Renta dress worn at Saturday’s victory event sells out in HOURS – as designers share a behind-the-scenes look at the finishing touches.”

Conservative commentator Ben Shapiro has argued that Barack Obama was America’s first celebrity president, and that Trump happened to be a celebrity who was elected president.
Along those lines, we can expect going forward that the entertainment industry will once again make a model out of an everyday politician’s wife, after spending four years ignoring an actual model who happened to marry a guy who became president.
