Nude photos of Melania Trump on the New York Post front page are the latest snafu to plague the potential first lady's march to the White House, coming on the heels of a convention-speech plagiarism scandal and questions about her university degree.
The New York Post Sunday ran a nude photo of Donald Trump's wife with the headline, "The Ogle Office." The tabloid, owned by Rupert Murdoch, said that the pictures were taken in Manhattan back in 1995.
The Trump campaign sought to downplay the photo spread.
"These were photos that were 20 years old," said senior communications director Jason Miller on CNN's "Reliable Sources" Sunday. "They are a celebration of the human body as art."
Miller added that the photos were "nothing to be embarrassed about. She's a beautiful woman."
The Huffington Post said that a campaign spokeswoman declined to confirm whether Trump actually earned the degree. Soon, Melania's professional website, melaniatrump.com, which included references to the university degree, disappeared from the web.
Melania Trump responded on Twitter that the website was created in 2012 and was then removed because it "does not accurately reflect my current business and professional interests."
