Kellyanne Conway defends Melania Trump after Hollywood tabloid prints 'nonsense' story

This week, Hollywood tabloid US Weekly ran a cover story with the headline "Separate Lives" that investigated the "mysterious" life of first lady Melania Trump and "why she may never move into the White House."

President Donald Trump and Melania announced after his election win last November that she would stay in Manhattan so their 10-year-old son, Barron, could remain in the same school for the remainder of the school year. But once summer comes, the Trumps said Melania and Barron would move to Washington to be with Trump in the White House.

Clearly though, some are doubting whether or not Melania will ever make the move to Washington — and White House counselor Kellyanne Conway is fired up about it.

During an interview with Fox News' Howard Kurtz on "MediaBuzz," Conway defended Melania while blasting the "nonsense" tabloid.

"That's none of their business — it's nonsense," Conway said of US Weekly's story.

"[Melania] has plenty of a public role. The woman is beautiful inside and out. She's brilliant; she speaks five languages," Conway said. "She is a loving and supportive wife and mother. And I have to say a great friend and great role model to many of us who work closely with the president and first family."

Conway went on to explain that the media "can't stand" the fact that Melania doesn't want to be a super public figure and be completely open with the details of her personal life.

"They want to see, they want to poke, they want to dissect and wonder. I so admire the fact that Melania Trump, our first lady, is so comfortable in her own skin that she doesn't have to disprove anybody's negative stories or even positive stories," Conway explained.

"She has nothing to prove to anyone," she added. "As she represents this nation, she will do it with dignity and class and elegance and eloquence."

During the interview, Conway also praised Melania for being an immigrant who spent up to 10 years going through the "proper channels" to obtain her residency and citizenship in the U.S.

"It's so gratifying for me to see that in 2017," Conway said.
