    LOVE IT when Melania wears her hair up! Brilliant! Full court press! And her dignified look is such a foil to a certain 64 year old…who tries too hard.

    WE LOVE YOU DONALD AND MELANIA! THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU DO FOR US!

      “who tries to hard”… That has been my impression of Mme Macron all along. The effort shows. That is never good. Where will they be in ten years? Twenty?

      What great pictures. Loved the one of American Veterans of DDay being honored. Melania looks beautiful. She makes a lovely First Lady. So happy to see President and First Lady Trump getting the respect they deserve and have earned. MAGA. God bless.

    This is a great photo op for President Macron. On this special French holiday, a great jobs maker from the US, President Trump stands shoulder to shoulder with Macron, who wants to improve his country’s economy. This is a challenge to the de facto head of Europe, German Angela Merkel. President Hollande ceded too much authority to her and the EU, and the French routed them out of office, bigly. The imagery looks good, I hope there will be great follow through.

      goswell, don’t the French always sublimate themselves to the Germans? At least since Napoleon. I wanted Le Pen to win the election, but let’s give Macron a chance. He, after all, was NOT French Establishment either. France is farther down the road to serfdom (socialism) than the US so he can’t do but so much to wean the population off the government teat. He won’t pull out of the EU ala Britain but then neither would May or Cameron or any British PM. So far as his wife, she’s no Melania, but we here in the Treehouse are better than carping about someone’s age or looks — that’s Democrat territory.

        I agree (as do I think most here at CTH) there’s no call to ridicule the physical appearance of those with which we politically disagree, esp the relatives of our political opponents. Thankfully it is much less common at CTH than elsewhere.

          Macron’s choice of partner is part and parcel of who he is.. So the way his partner portrays herself is a reflection of Macron. She dresses like a cougar. I would be ashamed of her if she represented the United States as First Lady. Thank God for Trump and his choice of partner!

        The First World War was thoroughly bloody and left France depleted of young men. That fact is one reason why the televised pair, Macron and Trump, on the 100th anniversary of the US entering WWI, was exciting. All the backslapping, smiles and pledges of conviviality were a great remembrance of historical friendship in the face of Germany. I am sure this did get in Germany’s face today, to remember the wars they lost to Free Europe and the United States.

        Last year, or the year before, President Hollande threatened to make an alliance within The EU to stand against austerity and Germany calling all the shots. Macron could do the same while looking for ways to create French jobs in France and around Europe, including the UK. France won’t pull out of the EU but could put forward a new path within it. Merkel could get testy. We shall see.

        No, “We here in the Treehouse” LIKE to carp about someone’s age and looks – because we do what needs to be done to win, – unlike those who whine about vulgarity — that’s “principled conservative” perpetual losers territory.

    One of the reasons Melania looks so very elegant is because she’s not lugging around a purse. Purses are necessary but if on can do away with the things, all the better. Note how much more attractive Ms. Macron would be without that heavy purse.

      That’s something I’ve never understood about Queen Elizabeth. She obviously thinks a purse completes her ensemble, but it’s always looked odd, to me at least. She’s got dozens of servants. Surely someone could hand her whatever she needed.

        QE’s purse is easy to explain. You can’t get a Model 629 S&W in an ankle holster.
        With the french, it’s most likely backup toilet paper.

        Queen Elizabeth says she keeps dog biscuits in her purse for her Corgis. I think she just wants some personal space since everything she does is so public.

        Actually, the reason Queen Elizabeth always has a purse is to signal to her guards when she wants to leave. She holds it in one arm and then, when she’s ready to move on, she moves it to the other so she can let them know.

      In the video it showed her changing it from hand to hand and then back again.

      I’m not so sure it was heavy, but it was certainly awkward.

      Some truth to it. But not all of it. She looks elegant because she is. She is also dressed to kill, tall and slender, well taken care of and gorgeous. Now Hillary does not lug a purse around, neither does Merkel but there is no way they look elegant.

    For Macron, this is an image-enhancing coup. The American President came to HIS celebration.

    I’m sure President Trump has ideas and plans of his own that are substantially beyond photo ops.

    To explain the above two tweets by Richard Grenell, I would like to point out that Grenell was pictured in the Oval Office WITH President Trump a couple of days ago. I assume that THIS is the message that President Trump would like us to keep in mind.

    The French are not like us in many of their attitudes, but as was said this morning, if you go to Mt. Vernon, you can see the key to the Bastille which was brought to George Washington by the Marquis de Lafayette.

    Macron is an unknown and we get a lot of our news about him from either the British press, who is usually snarky about the French, or the elite media, which like to portray him as some wunder-kind, or the right-wing sites, which portray him as some sort of lunatic.

    There is not a lot of accurate information about him in the press from any source. I think waiting and seeing is the best attitude to have.

    And trust that President trump knows what he’s doing.

        She is very thin. But, in my opinion, not très chic.
        She does need a stylist…much like someone else we have seen make many a fashion faux pas.
        And her hair – I don’t know. It does look unusual.
        I have a friend married to a much younger man – married for many years now.
        Her health is not good. But, she says she awakens every morning in a happy frame of mind. As her friend, that makes me very happy.
        But now, after all these years, she speaks about “if he would ever leave for a young woman…”
        My husband is also younger than me…a few years.
        I strive to age with dignity.
        I don’t look young anymore.
        But then, neither does he. haha

      I love Brigette Macron’s dress and think it is very becoming. It’s chic and is perfect for summer. At least that’s my objective opinion. She would look better if her hair were up though.

        Looking closer at the dress, they used a lot of vertical lines thru the use of the seams and the center zipper to give her a sense of height. I think the hem could have been just an inch to an inch & half longer would have been more effective. Maybe a more neutral color of shoe would have helped also. The dress has a retro 60’s feel and a way better look than her previous style choices.

    Now much has been said about Mrs mommy macron, queen Elizabeth and even our beautiful FLOTUS and pocketbooks. Even a comment about evil (my adjective) Liarly never using one.

    So, I agree with that very last observation in particular. Therefore, can anyone tell me if:

    1- I’m the only one who noticed that after Liarly passed out and was thrown into her spooky scooby van on 9/11/16, was brought to her just as evil daughter’s NYC apartment, when she miraculously exits the apartment building shortly after all that, waving, all smiles, both shoes on her feet, going over to take a photo with a little girl (all staged, I believe), and that she’s intently holding onto a YUGE pocketbook, large enough to be called a tote, holding it tightly against her right side!!!???

    And

    2- WHY!!?? From the second I watched that happen live, I have vocalized to whoever I could: what the heck is up with that pocketbook??? Anyone have any idea!!?? I’d love to know the reasoning behind that happening.

      Wow. You are right, and it passed me by. I thought I had caught everything about that strange, puzzling situation.

      I will go to my grave convinced they used a body double. She didn’t look the same. I felt like I was looking at one of those cartoon deals where you find the ten things that are different in the two cartoons. But I didn’t notice the handbag…

        Yes, Sylvia, I absolutely agree with your suspicion of that weird exit from her daughter’s apartment. I believe it was a body double and the bag (pocketbook, not the hag) was used to somehow distract from that fact. Absolutely. If not, what the heck was up with THAT BAG!!??

        I’m telling you, I’ll go to my grave totally believing her people were up to BS that day!!

        And the fact that her people kept the press pool ‘caged’ at the World Trade Center ceremony so they couldn’t follow her and see her possibly collapse, which indeed she did!! Amazing we have that video from that one person!! God allowed or ordained that person being there and taping it all. But did the media throw a fit for being held back???? More fake crappola!

          As much as anything, I think her collapse and getting shoved into the Scooby van, stiff as a plank, with her shoe left on the street cost her the election. That was the weirdest thing ever.

          Every time she pops up from her woodland habitat and emerges on the news I think to myself, “Oh, she isn’t dead yet?”

            There are SO many reasons I didn’t plan on giving her my vote, but maybe you’re right… that was up there. However, the FINAL nail in her coffin regarding not getting my vote was the next day, Saturday night, at that ‘elitists’ fundraiser where she called ME, and all other believers in what Trump was ‘selling’ during his campaign, a Deplorable in a basket.

            That was it!!! Sunday morning, I got a small basket, filled it with slips of paper I recorded comments of Deplorables overnight that were very witty and pithy, and carried it with me wherever I went. When people would ask me what I was carrying, I told them it was my Basket of Deplorables.

            (Wish I could attach a copy of the picture of it I took for posterity.)

            Such a loser the old hag is. I’m so grateful she lost. Thank You, God!

    I was watching this coverage on Varney and Company this morning. Stuart Varney said several times he thinks of Donald Trump as a missionary going to Europe to display Western values, and that maybe he can change some hearts and minds in old Europe which seems to be rejecting their traditions.
