Melania Trump threatens to sue… again

Melania Trump isn’t letting a little detail like being first lady get in the way of suing people.

Fresh off a settlement with The Daily Mail over the British rag insinuating she’d once worked as a high class escort, Mrs. Trump is now making new litigious threats over an issue that’s a bit closer to home.

Billboards with the first lady’s likeness reading “Just imagine how far you can go with a little bit of English” were taken down in Croatia’s capital city Tuesday after the offending party received a legal threat from Melania’s lawyer.

The advertisements were part of a language school’s marketing campaign in Zagreb intended to leverage the fist lady’s success in order to promote Croats learning English.

Natasa Pirc-Musar, Melania’s lawyer, demanded he school take down the signs, shown above.

“I’m satisfied with the fact that the school admitted that they violated the law and that they are ready to remove the billboards,” Pirc-Musar said. “We are still analyzing possible further legal steps.”

Melania, who is originally from neighboring Slovenia, hired Pirc-Musar’s firm to protect her image, which has reportedly popped up on everything from cakes to underwear.

“We are very sorry that the billboards were misunderstood as something intended to mock the US first lady,” school spokesman Ivis Buric told the AP. “It was meant to be something positive, to show her as a role model.”

But Melania isn’t satisfied with a mere apology — her firm is asking Croatian and Slovenian news agencies to publish the school’s admittance of wrongdoing.

Melania Trump was born Melanija Knavs. She left Slovenia for the United States in her 20s to try her hand at modeling, where she most certainly did not work as an escort.

    That’s funny as hell. They say “liberals” are so whiny about everything. It seems the tables have evened out. Haha.

    • leobaga

      Liberals don’t whine — they use violence.

    • Brody

      leobaga –

      They violently whine (while wearing masks, to boot).

    • Large Marge

      Tell me more about the KKK’s white hoods!

  • Corey

    Oh my gosh. You can see her nipples in that pic. Lmao. Our First Lady, guys.

    • leobaga

      At least she does not have an Adam’s apple like Michelle’s.

    • Brody

      leobaga –
      Nor does she have a dick, as Michelle conspicuously did.

    • 1EqualityUSA

      The podium at the U.N. had a dick.

      @leobaga & @Brody

      When Joan Rivers accused Michelle Obama of being transgender I thought it was just a joke because of her manly appearance but then I saw the clip of her dancing on Ellen and something swinging in her white pants, now I’m not 100% sure if it was a joke…

      Obergefell is already under attack by Trump, trolls. Trump chose vehemently anti-gay–“Jeff Mateer, recently condemned LGBTQ people in dehumanizing terms. In 2015, Mateer called transgender schoolchildren part of “Satan’s plan” and described same-sex marriage as “disgusting” “debauchery,” comparing it to “people marrying their pets.” He also endorsed conversion therapy, a discredited practice that attempts to turn gay people straight, often using gruesome psychosexual torture.”

      ” On the same day, the president also nominated Matthew J. Kacsmaryk to the United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas. Mateer and Kacsmaryk are colleagues at First Liberty Institute, a conservative legal advocacy group that opposes LGBTQ rights, including non-discrimination measures that protect gay and trans people. Although Kacsmaryk’s public statements are not flamboyantly bigoted, his choice of employment suggests that he shares Mateer’s beliefs about LGBTQ rights. A third nominee, Stephen S. Schwartz, has devoted much of his career to defending anti-trans measures in court. Trump wants to place him on the U.S. Court of Federal Claims.

      oh.. there that paragraph went. I’m so tired. Worked too much this week. Obergfell is under attack and these clown-trolls want to talk about Michelle Obama. Russian hands. Roman fingers.

      Don’t criticize us, we’re commenting on the related article. You should criticize Queerty for reporting on rubbish

    • 1EqualityUSA

      There’s the door, Hoff. Happy trails to you. Find a site. “Goin’ where the climate suits my clothes.” Reducing your self-aggrandized intellect to disparaging discussions of body parts can hardly be considered impressive. Oh, hey, there’s another piece of “rubbish” on your “turncoat.”

  • BigWill

    Welp, a Melania story: You know what that means—Mo will be blowing in here any minute in high dudgeon to defend his maturbatory-fantasy gal.

    But, yes, dumb, aggrieved, and litigious: She’s adapted quite well to the Trump family ethos.

  • nowliveit

    When with Donald, do what the litigious man does.
    That family has no freedom outside of his personality and who he is.

  • Izzy55

    Yes, you can go far with a little English and a great set of knockers!

  • DCguy

    A “Little Bit” of English is right.

    Interesting that she’s been here 20 years and speaks English worse than your average kitchen line worker whose been here 6 months. I guess when you have a husband you never want to speak to you don’t get a chance to practice English much.

    • mhoffman953

      @DCguy

      She knows 6 languages. I think she speaks fairly well for knowing 6 languages, most likely a lot better than most Americans. Sure she has a thick accent but she still has fairly good grammar. I had a foreign language professor in college who spoke just like Melania and she taught multiple languages.

      Are you suggesting that all entrants into the US speak proficient English before entering this country? Something tells me that your liberal friends don’t agree with that

  • duje_buric

    Deffinitely it wasn’t her English. Things got better for her after Trump bought her… :D :D :D
