First Lady Melania Trump decided to make not one, but two unannounced stops recently. One was a special stop that says a lot.
The first, Florida, while presumably on her way to Mar-A-Lago…
From BizPac Review:
After canceling a planned trip to Davos, Switzerland accompanying her husband President Trump, first lady Melania Trump turned up in Florida in an unannounced visit.
She arrived in West Palm Beach around midday Thursday, a law enforcement source confirmed to CNN. Her plane and a motorcade were spotted but there was no official word about her arrival or plans as she likely headed to Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach.
The other stop? The Holocaust Museum in Washington DC…
In another surprise visit, before arriving in Florida the first lady made a stop at the Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C., to recognize International Holocaust Remembrance Day, which is on Saturday. She tweeted photos of her visit and issued a statement following the stop.
Actress Kristen Bell set her sights on Melania in her opening monologue at the SAG Awards.
From The Daily Wire:
Actress and proud feminist Kristen Bell, who hosted the sanctimonious show, waited a whole nine-seconds before setting up her crack at First Lady Melania Trump’s expense.
“There has never been a host for this award show before,” Bell said. “Yep, first time, first person, first lady. And I honestly never thought that I would grow up to be the first lady. But you know what? I kind of like it.”
Then came the Melania jab: “I think my first initiative as first lady will be cyberbullying, because I have yet to see any progress made on that problem quite yet.”
In October, Mrs. Trump announced that she’d be fighting to stop bullying in schools. “I think it’s important that we choose kindness and compassion,” she said during a visit to a Detroit middle school.
Independent has more:
First Lady Trump was roundly mocked for this comment on her campaign in October last year, which came a day after her husband called a Congresswoman “wacky” on Twitter.
Continuing her speech at the SAG Awards, Bell turned her attention to sexual assault, and told the Hollywood audience that the film industry was having a “watershed moment”.
“Everyone’s story deserves to be told, especially now,” she said. “We are having a watershed moment and as we march forward with active momentum and open ears, let’s make sure that we’re leading the charge with empathy and with diligence because fear and anger never win the race.”
Newsweek reported Melania ordered a 200-year-old tree to be removed from the White House without saying anything about the tree needing to come down.
Newsweek came under heavy fire Tuesday for a misleading headline that appeared to blame first lady Melania Trump for arbitrarily ordering the removal of a 200-year-old tree on the White House lawn.
In truth, it was the U.S. National Arboretum that recommended the historic Jackson Magnolia be removed — and quickly — because it was too damaged and decayed to safely remain in place, CNN reported.
