The First Lady of the United States is no stranger to criticisms. And this time around, she's getting some heat for presenting herself dishonestly.

According to NBC News, Melania Trump's bio underwent a change which reflected that she did not complete a college degree in Slovenia before meeting and marrying Donald Trump. However, her own website previously claimed she did.

The FLOTUS' bio on the government website once mentioned that Melania "paused her studies" so she could further her modeling career. But there was no mention of whether or not she eventually completed the degree. Now the bio no longer contains any information about her academic achievements.

The discrepancies in the information provided by her website and the government website didn't go unnoticed. The former model was accused of lying that she obtained a degree in design and architecture from the University of Ljubljana.

One of the professors at the institutions, Blaz Matija Vogelnik, confirmed to NBC News that Melania did not complete his course.

He said that Melania didn't finish university, at least not at that particular institution. Then he added:

My personal opinion is that, because she was a very beautiful girl, I believe that she realized that she could gain more with that than to have long studies.

Vogelnik did admit that Melania had a "very high" IQ which made it possible for her to pass the test required to gain admission to the university in the first place.

These issues with her academic history have ignited disapproval among social media users who insisted that she was being dishonest.

Some posted comments to that effect implying that she isn't a woman of integrity.

Do you believe that Melania misrepresented herself?
