Melania Trump’s Spokeswoman is Angry That the Press is Talking About Melania’s Messy Hair

A story about Melania Trump and Karen Pence’s joint visit to Fort Bragg on Monday to support military families is being slammed by the first lady’s director of communications — because it’s all about FLOTUS’s messy, wind-blown hair.

Stephanie Grisham took to Twitter to call out an article by British tabloid the Daily Mail, which featured multiple shots of the first lady’s long hair blowing in the wind as she flew out of Maryland and arrived in North Carolina.

“Melania Trump’s normally picture-perfect appearance met its match on Monday morning, when the first lady was caught in some very blustery weather that saw her left without a single hair in place,” the article reads.

Grisham didn’t appreciate the coverage, accusing it of glossing over Trump’s focus on members of the military in honor of Month of the Military Child. FLOTUS and the second lady’s trip to Fort Bragg included a visit to a middle school on the military base, where Trump spoke to students about her anti-bullying #BeBest initiative.

“This display of liberal media bias undermines all who serve,” she wrote, though commenters were quick to point out that, in addition to being a U.K. newspaper, the Daily Mail is notoriously conservative.

Twitter wasn’t having it:

And hey, maybe the crazy wind hair is a Trump thing?
