What Do Melania Trump And Adolph Hitler Have in Common? Royalties for Their Images

I see that the First Lady of the United States has a cash register next to her bed. For royalties of his dainty image focused through a Belgian (not American) Photographer's worth thousands of dollars soft gel lens. 

News media paid Melania Trump thousands for use of photos in 'positive stories only'

Melania Trump has earned six figures from an unusual deal with a photo agency in which major media organizations have indirectly paid the Trump family despite a requirement that the photos be used only in positive coverage.

President Donald Trump's most recent financial disclosure reveals that in 2017 the first lady earned at least $100,000 from Getty Images for the use of any of a series of 187 photos of the first family shot between 2010 and 2016 by Belgian photographer Regine Mahaux.
It's not unheard of for celebrities to earn royalties from photos of themselves, but it's very unusual for the wife of a currently serving elected official. More problematic for the many news organizations that have published or broadcast the images, however, is that Getty's licensing agreement stipulates the pictures can be used in "positive stories only."
I wanted to put Melania's pwecious image up top next to other royalty hog A. Hitler who was paid a royalty for his image on German Postage btw. You think he would do it for free. That's not socialist and or National Socialist that is. lol
But unlike Michelle Obama and Laura Bush whose images are public domain on Wikipedia because they were taken by an employee of the Executive Branch of the White House, a public employee and therefore public domain, Wiki had succumbed to the leveraging and commoditizing of everything else in America including clean air and water, one of those I have to attribute the image of her Dolce and Gabbana butt to her Belgian effete elite artist photo taker. etc.
No public domain image of her available. F her. 
Was the incident on the border last week with the I don't care coat an attempt like Jackie Kennedy Onassis wearing only black in public an attempt to discourage for the paparazzi from stealing her pwecious image on a negative?
