Notice What First Lady Melania Doesn’t Do…

There’s a recap video of Melania Trump today provided by the Associated Press.  As much as they hate to admit it, the media are recognizing the classic elegance within how our First Lady carries herself.

Melania Trump has an inherent understanding of nuance, and epitomizes a grace lost to all except the most traditionally versed.  There is also another element to this – visible in what she does not do when contrast against her peers.  See if you notice it in the last few moments of the AP video:

Did you notice it?

First Lady Melania Trump doesn’t drink.

Just like President Trump, First Lady Melania Trump doesn’t drink alcohol.

    Hey! I got it from the video, Sundance. What did I win? 😉

    It never occurred to me even to wonder whether or not she tipped a glass now and then, but now that you point it out, it puts another piece of the picture of the First Couple’s relationship.

    I’ve long said, the best we can do with our bodies is to give it the best food and not be led around by your nose, tongue or stomach. EVERYTHING outside of that only serves to slow the body, and thus the mind, down. This includes drink and smoke and all manner of drugs. President Trump does not intentionally stupidify himself and his wife follows the president’s lead as a great lady should. President Trump led his children in kind and they turned out pretty well too.

    I’ve been more or less living this philosophy which seems more than apparent with President Trump as well. And frankly, every time I hear someone say “I need a drink” I cringe. And when I hear people who have had some sort of medical procedure telling people “how great those [pain killer/narcotic] drugs were” you can imagine my reaction inside. I feel like a bit of an outsider in that sense but I will not drink or smoke or do drugs. I don’t see the use in those things and I am NOT a religious man.

        I consider myself a weirdo in that respect. It’s not as if I never tried alcohol — I just hate the way it makes me feel. I tried marijuana too back in the 80s… at least I think it was… I’m told it wasn’t as potent as it is today but it did NOTHING for me at all while others who tried it reported a significant reaction. I simply hated the smell and found it useless.

        I’m not without vice. Similar to our President, I like fast food… Whataburger, for those who know the place, is an ongoing craving which goes unanswered as I don’t live in an area with one. Griff’s, if you can manage to find one is phenomenal. If it could be considered a drug (and by some definitions, it is) then I would claim to be an addict.

        I do refuse to buy pants larger than 32″ and so I manage to keep within those parameters okay, but still…

        This is just to offer up some idea of how I think and how I see, not so much what I claim or idealize. I do it because it’s more natural for me and because it fits me, not because I am on some sort of crusade of health.

          You should be grateful then that you’ve never had to suffer from a terrible disease, or had to have major surgery, or even had to go through childbirth. Try being in labor for 3 days….you would beg for drugs to make the pain stop.

          I don’t disagree about the alcohol and cigarettes, but pain medication is a different situation.

            You presume too much. I’ve has bouts with disease of all sorts with fevers, lung infection and injuries including broken bones, a broken nose. I tripped on barbed wire once. Pain is a sensory input like to many others. While I admit it can be debilitating in the moment, local anesthesia and sleep are the ways I have managed those in the past.

            I have endured a LOT of pain over the years and I consider each incident an exercise in overcoming a personal challenge.

            Were I capable of bring pregnant and giving birth I doubt I would complain about it as so many women do. My wife, for example, knew more or less what she was up against before it all happened and she experienced nearly every bit of it before having locals administered — her concern was based on the knowledge that whatever drugs entered her blood would also enter our son’s blood and she would have none of it.

            If you’re a religious person then you probably understand that the suffering of Christ was managed through the acceptance of destiny, fate, purpose and/or God’s will. I’ve known women who survived childbirth and wore the experience as a badge of honor. Why did you cheat yourself of the experience and tradition?

            I get that we all perceive things through different filters and that my filters are extremely uncommon and tainted with a touch of autism. But I have also learned I can change my filters at will sometimes to reduce emotional, mental or physical stress, but also to provide myself with different points of view or to provide more clarity on an issue.

        Having terrible time posting, but try again. When I saw the photo of the white skinny pants, sweater and casual shoes my first reaction was she’s out shopping. Then when she wasn’t in the balcony photo I assumed she had another event, but she shows up in the video in that horribly inappropriate outfit. Isn’t anyone guiding her regarding what to wear for these functions? Haven’t seen what she wore to the symphony…almost afraid to look. Actually, I feel embarrassed for her…perhaps she will grow into the role as it is very new. Anyone think she looks like Jane Fonda?

          Tegan,
          I heard people talking that she had a picture taken next to our beautiful FLOTUS yesterday, and even the French cringed. I guess she was wearing a miniskirt with a belt that was placed wrong or unflattering to say the least. I haven’t seen the picture, but I’m still looking. She was also told not to stand next to our beautiful Melania after that fiasco. I can’t help but laugh.

          It reminds me of seeing our President grin to the cameras after he shook hands with Macron when Macron was trying to ignore him. The grin said, “He’s a child!” However, the grin could’ve also been comparing his beautiful wife, our FLOTUS to Macron’s OLD lady. He he.

    I feel like a star struck tween girl buying a copy of Tiger Beat magazine. I am just so awestruck by Melania. She moves so gracefully. She made all of those supposedly elegant Euro women look like bumpkins, hayseeds, and WalMart people. Mrs. Abe looked very nice though, I must say. I cannot believe we have Melania Trump representing us. Wow. I am so proud I get teary. I feel stupid admitting all of this, but I can’t get enough of her. She is amazing.

    See, now as I read this back it sounds shallow because I have focused on her physicality. I guess what I am groping to say is some version of “form follows function.” I think her outer beauty is an expression of what is inside of her. It is just easier and more obvious to focus on the wrapper and the trappings than to try to find words for what I sense is inside of her. She is PDJT’s secret weapon.

JFK would have 3 prostitutes at once when he was traveling; his Secret Service guys talked about it long after he died, saying, “Man, you’d be thinking, ‘For God’s sake, you’re the President, have some dignity!'”

          This not only explained the degree of indecency that Beelzebubba allowed himself – it also explained why he seemed so entitled and so angry about being caught and prosecuted in impeachment. JFK had pleasured himself with teenage interns and yet was still a hero – why not poor little Bill Clinton?
