Melania graces the cover of Vanity Fair Mexico's February issue, which was released on Thursday.
The insane thing is this photo and interview with FLOTUS are both from GQ's sit down with Donald Trump's wife from last spring.
While it's awkward enough that the worldwide glossy is re-using a recently published photo, the timing is also ironic given that president Donald Trump is ordering the construction of a border wall with Mexico and saying that the Mexican government will pay for it.
American headlines have been dominated by news of a cancelled meeting between President Donald Trump and Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto.
If this was the assumption, Vanity Fair Mexico fell victim to that old adage about "u" and "me".
"The U.S. has a 60 billion dollar trade deficit with Mexico", the real estate mogul wrote.
The release of the cover sparked outrage among some people in Mexico who took to Twitter to express their dismay.
The confrontation between the two countries has lit huge concern for the Mexican economy, and seen a diplomatic crisis emerge of epic proportions and Trump-Mexico (rather than US/Mexico) relationship are said to be at a new low. "The article published in GQ today is yet another example of the dishonest media and their disingenuous reporting". Michelle Obama appeared on the front of Vogue three times, and has graced covers of magazines as varied as Seventeen and Good Housekeeping.
According to CNN, Trump has feuded with Vanity Fair for years, most recently accusing the publication of "really poor numbers" in December, predicting it will be "dead" soon. "She must have known how odd it would look", wrote Jolly Confused.
