It was before and during the 2016 Election that Melania Knauss Trump denied her escort service connection. However, that "scandal" was poorly handled by the media, as they focused on her "Trump" style lawsuit ("I'll threaten to sue you") which the defendant could not afford, rather than focus on the modeling service that Paolo Zampolli ran. Rumors were rampant in Slovenia that Melania was a paid escort alongside her modeling gig. Indeed, the modeling career was hardly a career. http://www.gq-magazine.co.uk/article/donald-trump-melania-trump-knauss-first-lady-erections. In New York, Trump, himself and his crooked business partner, Tommaso Buti, opened their own "Modeling" Agency. As early as 1999, Leonardo di Caprio described Trump’s poser business as “one-stop date-shopping.” It is important to note that Trump used meet-and-greet parties where his wealthy friends, high-rollers could meet models wrangled for him by cooperative owners of lesser agencies, including Zampolli's own, in which Melania then worked.
Why is not one media outlet digging into this carbuncular story that Melania was a paid escort?
