Nude photos of first ladies and presidents

31-formattIf Donald Trump is elected President of the United States, his wife will not be the first first lady who posed for nude photographs.

Melania Trump’s censored nude photos adorn the pages of the New York Post today.  Columnist Andrea Peyser posted, “This election has finally gotten European,” on facebook.

The Post said it exclusively obtained the photos from French photographer Alé de Basse­ville who shot them during a Manhattan photo shoot in 1995 when Melania was a professional model, Hillary Clinton was first lady and Monica Lewinsky was an intern.

Nude photos of prospective first ladies, and presidents for that matter, are not a new phenomena. Hillary Clinton herself posed for nude photos as a Wellesley College student.  Former Secretary of State Madeline Albright as well as news media personalities Diane Sawyer and Cokie Roberts also reportedly posed for nude photographs as Wellesley students.

Both presidents Bush were likely photographed nude while freshmen at Yale. Secretary of State John Kerry too.

Actress Meryl Streep was photographed nude as a Vassar student and in at least one of her movies.

From the 1940’s through the early 1970’s college freshmen at several Ivy League and other elite American universities were required to be photographed nude, ostensibly for a scientific study conducted by researcher W.H Sheldon, according to The New York Times.  Sheldon was trying to determine if there is a correlation between body type and intelligence.   The photos were donated to the Smithsonian when Sheldon died in 1977.  The Smithsonian never put them on display to the public, but they were available to the students and researchers until they were reportedly destroyed after there existence  became known to the public in 1995…during the Clinton Administration.

All those elite students took their clothes off for the camera because they were told they must.  Melania got paid to do it.  History will determine who made the better deal.

    I like how you slid the words “likely” and “reportedly” in there when we’re looking at ‘definitely’ with Melania Trump.

    Art, what do you use to wash the slime off after these oily offerings?

    I don’t see any thing wrong with naked people. Its very healthy n natural to be nude which is why I go to the beach at Gunnisson Beach. No tan lines, boys.

    Bob, do you mean Muslims? They are standing on the stage next to Hillary celebrating their invasion of America while forcing women to wear headscarves.

    is the pervasive childish and immature mentality like most of us experienced back in grammar school.. It is just another example of how crude our political “gotcha” culture, led by Hollywood, has become.. Whatever and whomever anyone did and were,prior to public life, is just there..The way they are going to protect me and my family, or not,charge me additional tax monies, or not, and get our country lost respect and income back, or not, is infinitely more important, and am sick of the b s media with their “shock talk” for sales and ratings, and this “in-your-face mentality!” Sickos..
