“The View” hosts had a lot to say on May 17 about Melania Trump’s Vogue comments. “Vogue is a business … They want to sell magazines,” co-host Sunny Hostin said. In her view, having Donald Trump’s wife on its cover would have put off its audience. “I don’t know if they would’ve sold as many magazines if they would’ve had First Lady Melania Trump on the magazine, the first lady to the very unpopular president,” she added. Co-host Joy Behar, however, didn’t miss the opportunity to take a jab at her by bringing up Melania’s controversial photoshoots. “We’ve seen a lot of photographs of her online, though.”

After Bess Truman, Melania is only the second first lady that was never featured in Vogue during her tenure since the magazine began including them in 1929, according to 9News. However, Vogue editors reportedly attempted to feature Melania, who refused when they wouldn’t guarantee her the cover, journalist Amy Odell wrote in “Anna: The Biography” (via Yahoo!) about editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, pictured here with Melania in 2005, the year she was on the cover in her wedding dress.

Co-host Whoopi Goldberg believes that’s on Melania. “Here’s the thing you cannot do with magazines… you can’t tell them who goes on the cover,” she said. In 2019, Wintour suggested Vogue’s decision was deliberate. “I don’t think it’s a moment not to take a stand,” she told CNN (via The Washington Post).
