At first I thought the .lines were exaggerated, perhaps they were. But I couldn't help but bring this to ATS for further analysis.

Official White House Website Promotes Melania Trump’s Jewelry Brand




Following a section detailing her philanthropic activities over the years, the bio includes the following short paragraph:

Melania is also a successful entrepreneur. In April 2010, Melania Trump launched her own jewelry collection, “Melania™ Timepieces & Jewelry”, on QVC.


Now, when I go to the website, it no longer says the name of the Jewelry collection, and is much more general, but did it actually have this earlier on in the day? That's a pretty fast and impressive response if you ask me.

Here's the link to White House's Webpage on Melania - the Jewelry mention is 3rd Paragraph from the Bottom White House Webpage on Melania's Bio

Does anyone have that "Timetravel" software to view a website as it looked in earlier versions? I'm not that tech savvy but I've seen it been done before. I'm sure some of you on ATS could help out with this.


Here's a 2nd source on the story www.sfgate.com...

She made a very nice appearance at the Inauguration today. I had reminiscences of Jackie-O.

I expect the Trumps will market product time-to-time. As long as they're not shoving a healthcare plan down your throat ... I'll be grateful.

LOL!!!

Next thing you're going to see is a Trump/Melania facebook ad selling some garbage cubic zirconia diamonds that leave rashes on people.

The times have certainly changed since the Kennedy's were in the White House. However, I feel that the 1st lady and Presidential Family should have the common sense to recognize that using their political position for personal gains and free advertising is not Presidential, and not a good reflection - certainly not a good first impression, doing so on Inauguration day.

I'd bet Jackie-O, even in the year 2017 where things have changed drastically, would not have been okay with trying to promote her own products on her White House Bio page, but that's just my personal opinion.

Naming your accomplishments, is not the same thing as an add. Its called a bio.

And she was so graceful and beautiful today. She appears introvert or shy, and intelligent.

It's easy enough.
Go here
archive.org...
Paste the URL. You'll figure it out.

It did say that up until a couple hours ago.

Old news, and I'm not really sure why it's being dredged back up.

As you can see from this article back on Nov. 11, 2016, the Trump team was already being criticized for what appeared to be them using their '.gov' site as a place to advertise.

Roughly the same time (within a few days) the same issue regarding Melania's "advertising" of her jewelry line on the .gov transition site was criticized as well. IIRC, both issues were edited pretty quickly on the .gov websites last November.

Actually, when you tell someone where they can find your products it really is.

Thank you Phage - I didn't know you could do that through a website, I thought you needed your own software. Helpful resource. Much appreciated.

Not sure if the link will be too long but trying to post for others to see:

ETA: full hyperlink was too long, but using Phage's instructions it is easy to see that the webpage was indeed edited, most likely after White House staff got word of the media discussing this

I'm trackin', brother. But don't blame the First Lady. Think about it and realize Mrs. Trump did not have a damn thing to do with that. Highly doubtful she has: a. such IT skills. b. Access to the website (at all).

Probably somebody trying to curry favor. The fact that it got yanked quickly proves that's not the Primary reason Trump ran for POTUS.

Cheers!!

She could hand out food to starving children and those on the left would find fault.. Trump could walk on water and those on the left would .line..."HE CAN'T SWIM!"

Pathetic excuse for rational thought or the truth

are you talking about this one little sentence?

In April 2010, Melania Trump launched her own jewelry collection.


That`s hardly an ad

How could the Trump team use the whitehouse.gov to advertise in November?

Did you read the OP? Or any of the posted articles? It didn't say that earlier.

Yeah, I edited the post. It was their ’.gov’ Transition Website.

People can appear to be many things. For example, Donald appears to be a person who cares for the people, yet he does not. He appears competent, but he is far far from it.

but that`s what it says now.
if you were shopping for jewelry would the first lady`s whitehouse webpage be the first place you would go looking to buy jewelry?

if it`s an ad then trump has really lost his touch for advertising and I don`t believe she is going to sell much jewelry.

No. But if I were to be perusing the White House website and saw that I could buy Melania's stuff on QVC I might take a look. That's what advertising is for, to get you to take a look.

Seems plausible that a member of their tech team might have used the pre-edited bios (which they were criticized for last November) from their old .gov transition site while updating the White House site.

It's good that the webmaster seems to be paying attention. I wonder if Donald knows it was edited.
