Melania Trump like you’ve never seen her before

Decades before she was sporting designer dresses on the stage of the Republican National Convention as Mrs. Trump, Melania Knauss posed nude in a photo spread for a now-defunct French men’s magazine, The Post has learned. The leggy, Slovenian-born model — then 25 years old and known by her professional moniker Melania K. — did the steamy photo session in Manhattan in 1995, according to Alé de Basse­ville, the French photographer who shot the sexy snaps. (Photographer Alé de Basse­ville later told The Post that he misspoke, and the photo session actually took place in 1996 in Manhattan, and appeared in a 1997 issue of the magazine.)

The images, some rarely seen and others never published, were obtained exclusively by The Post. Melania Trump’s nude pics are blowing New Yorkers’ minds.

Larry J. Sabato's Crystal Ball

Larry J. Sabato and Kyle Kondik, Sabato's Crystal Ball March 3rd, 2016 Let’s have some speculative fun, if such a thing is possible in this election year. After recent primaries, it’s not a stretch to imagine Donald Trump as the Republican presidential nominee; in fact, the odds at the moment favor this outcome. Now, add a second, more controversial projection: Trump loses the general election handily to Hillary Clinton.

Yet the conclusion isn’t our concoction as much as it is the rather strong belief — and fear — of major GOP officeholders at the national level, as the New York Times reported in an excellent piece over the weekend. We’ll revisit this subject many times before November, and it is vital to recall that six months ago, virtually everyone in public office and in the election analysis business dismissed Trump as a flash in the pan who could never be nominated. How does a Trump nomination change the Crystal Ball Senate map? The GOP’s destruction of its own party. “If he was for it, we had to be against it.” former U.S.

The GOP’s destruction of its own party

Sen. George Voinovich quoted in ‘The New New Deal’ by Michael Grunwald The “he” is President Obama. The “we” is the Republican Party. The GOP is an incoherent mess. The situation is so objectively and transparently grim that many on the right no longer even bother to spin it. “It would be terrible,” wrote Wall Street Journal columnist Bret Stephens last week, “to think that the left was right about the right all these years.”

But it can be argued that Trump is less the cause than an inevitable effect of the party’s looming disintegration. The popular storyline goes that voters are seeking political outsiders this year in their frustration over a government where the legislative gears are frozen and nothing gets done. Republicans and their media accomplices buttressed that strategy with a campaign of insult and disrespect designed to delegitimize Obama. And the strategy worked, hobbling and frustrating Obama.
