    A few weeks ago I finished “The Forgotten Man” by Amity Shlaes which had an account of the establishment of the National Art Museum following donations by Andrew Mellon. All the time he was planning and gathering art for the museum, he was being demonized and hounded by FDR and the progressives. Still, he loved his nation and the opportunity he had been given to give back.

    • Moreover, Melania and Brigitte speak the same language: French! How many other First Ladies have there been who could converse in at least SIX languages?

      And the only way the infantile, despicable, psychotic Left can respond is by keeping her off the cover of every women’s magazine, running naked pictures of her and salacious stories about her husband in the tabloids, and talking nothing but trash about her son.

        The facts is, FLOTUS doesn’t want to be on the front of magazines. Anna Wintour, vogue Editor, made a White House visit in the first week of the Presidency, I’m sure to book a photo shoot. Obviously she was turned down. Women’s mags are in the same trouble as all the other media….dying a slow death because of Social Media replacing MSM. FLOTUS is too classy for magazine covers.

      It seems like at one point Melania surreptitiously moved to the right.. It may have been so the photographers were not aimed at her backside or it may be so Mrs. Macron was getting more in the scene. I am guessing it was both. Being graceful and gracious at the same time.

        I don’t think I could ever get into the hang of “formal” dressing. Main reason I’ve never run for president. 😀 To give you an idea, back around 1990 or so I’d meet people who would say to me, “Cool, love the grunge style.” So I had to check around to see what they were talking about, and sure enough it had become a “thing” in some parts of the country. Kinda aggravating to try to convince people that I had been dressing that way BEFORE the fad started in Seattle or wherever. I should have sued for copyright infringement and got filthy rich! 😉

            Cool! Yeah, really weird. 😉 A good friend of our sons really went through a period when South Park first got big. For as long as we’d known him, his favorite phrase was “Sweet!” Anytime something happened that he liked, it was “Sweet!” Way before South Park cam along and made its usage world famous. So after that, this poor kid had to be careful where he used his favorite word… since people who didn’t know him would make fun of him for “copying South Park”.

    • Agreed!! When I read the headline about FLOTUS not being on the cover of as many mags as Michelle O, I was pretty upset. She is gorgeous and elegant in every way. But, I am now glad that she is not “all over the place.” I see it as she saves her elegance for real events, not some glossy grocery store rags. Old media anyway.

        Sylvia,
        I don’t know, I saw it a bit differently and am hoping I’m wrong. (It wouldn’t be the first time 🙃).

        While watching the interaction, I saw Mrs. Macron talk a moment with the curator and then turned to our FLOTUS Melania and acted as if she was explaining something she knew about and that our FLOTUS Melania couldn’t have known or understood. I saw the curator and Mrs.Macron look as if they were trying to explain something she had no clue about. If I am right, and I hope I’m not, I thought it was in poor taste to do something like that in front of all of those cameras. Our FLOTUS Melania stood rail still throughout this part as well.

        If true, the move was condescending and as if trying to one up on her and to show the world how much smarter she is than our FLOTUS. Most of us here at CTH would bet our last dollar that our FLOTUS is far more intelligent than Mrs. Macron in about everything and anything, she’d win hands down.

        As I said, I could’ve read this completely wrong, and I do hope I am. I despise cattiness from any level and from anyone.

        Please watch it again Sylvia and let me know if I’m off the mark, I will take your judgement.
        Be well, and thank you,
        Ma’iingankwe

          Mme Macron is a French and drama teacher. It’s only natural for her to explain stuff. I did art history in uni and I wouldn’t have known the painting either. There may have been a French connection Melania wouldn’t have known. You’re reading too much into it. Melania has no education problems. Remember she could probably buy some of this stuff 🙂

  15. Infuriating. LA Times today discussing Melania coming out of her “shroud of invisibility”:

    http://www.latimes.com/politics/la-na-pol-melania-trump-20180423-story.html

    The enemdia completely ignores FLOTUS and then claims that she’s been hiding! This MO has been outed as the standard for the left. McCabe leaked stories about Flynn and then started an investigation based on the stories in the enemedia. Crooked’s henchmen planted false stories from the fake dossier and then the FBI started an investigation based on the fake propaganda. There’s more but these are clear, obvious and recent.

    So the rule is: if you are reading about it, it’s propaganda, and next week there’ll be some other propaganda that was based on this week’s propaganda. It’s all about the narrative.

    And, btw, FLOTUS does look stunning. Mme. Macron looks good too. I wish I could hear the conversation between them.

      Jackie Kennedy had style, especially compared to the two older women before her. The nation was eager for that young, stylish First Lady. But, I doubt if anyone could honestly say she was pretty. Melania, OTH, is a knockout and her modeling background has given her the tools to present a whole package. The designers who high-handedly announced they would not “dress” her were idiots and will regret their silly political statement.
      Same with the so-called glamour magazines. I do not buy them…but, I would if Melania was featured.

      • I grew up idolizing the style of Audrey Hepburn and Jackie Kennedy…didn’t know a thing about their politics.

        As a result I have tons of books on Jackie.

        Melania is stunning and Jackie Kennedy was still.. She had irregular features that somehow combined to give her that fresh ‘it’ that Melania has too.

        JAckie was as gracious as Melania and I am pretty sure that both of these Catholic women would have deferred to the other as lovelier. You could read of how Jacqueline Kennedy bowled over everybody that her travels as First Lady took her to encounter.

        In that way, very much like Melania and very much not like Michelle, who never could refrain from giving off the vibe of expecting to be honored as the most important person in the room, Jacqueline has been a role model for this first lady unquestionably. She too loved kids.

        And funnily enough Melania was in front of the camera while Jacqueline Kennedy met JFK while she was BeHIND a camera, doing a light hearted question and answer of the Georgetown crowd for a newspaper.

          it is less the age than the circumstances.

          We are being force fed all of these 30ish women having sex with teens and all that they are getting is a slap on the wrist and guffaws from delinquent men who insist that ANY young man would love to be exploited by an older woman.

          Some of us are quite sick of it.

          Merle Oberon was somebody I only knew of as a little girl watching old movies, but I learned that her husband, Robbie, was significantly younger than she was. It didn’t bother me.

          Likewise my Grandpa was 7 years younger than my Grandma and he thought it was proper so he could take care of her.

          Neither of these younger men met their wives in the way that is the ‘ick’ factor of Macron.

        Then again, she has never endured the hate that Melania has. I don’t think any first lady has.

        If there was ever a reason to rid media and D.C. wholly of legions of people, the relentless, vicious, nearly socio-pathological hatred of the Trumps is it.

They are just out to get her. Stupid. But for fashionistas, there’s also lots of detail about the designs, AND there is just a whole lot of detail about the visit to date, period.

    My first thought when seeing the image at the top of the page is that Melania would look perfectly at home as the subject of one of the beautiful paintings instead of just the observer of them. She really is a contender for most beautiful First Lady of our history, just as her husband has, IMHO, already nailed best Chief Executive (I loved Reagan but the pace is faster now).

    Melania is so perfect for being FLOTUS. Any other female leader or wife of a leader of high position just seems so “less than”.
    Melania is charming and goes out of her way to make them all feel comfortable and welcome but no one can ever doubt that Melania is the star of the show. That being said, my favorite thing about her is the love and kindness she just naturally exudes. When she smiles, I just can’t help smiling back at her.
    I am so glad Melania is with President Trump. She handles her position better than any other First Lady I have ever seen. Jackie Kennedy could not begin to hold a candle to Melania. I can’t imagine a better First Lady for our President.
    Melania is such a wonderful role model for women of all ages. She sets the standard for beauty, intelligence, talent, kindness, graciousness, charm, class and dignity.
    President Trump is the star of the show also and any other world leader looks to him for approval.
    As our FIRST COUPLE, they are outstanding in the whole world. They set the standard for world leaders.
    I love them both, can you tell?
    God Bless President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump.

    • I’m in an odd position here, but you can thank Jackie Kennedy for bringing class and renovating the White House AND for letting the rest of the world know that American culture was every bit on the same level as any place else. She would have been an outstanding first lady for a conservative because she unquestionably loved this country but was also fluent in French and spanish and went out of her way to honor those visiting from other countries.

      Add to the fact that it looks as though she had to deal with the wandering eye of the love of her life (unfortunately her own father’s roving eye contributed to her parents’ divorce so she was sadly familiar with the trait…shared that with her mother in law, Rose Kennedy) and handled that with dignity, making sure her kids felt safe and loved.

      I have never liked how the left routinely goes after people who are dead, projecting false narratives upon them and villifying them.

      People have to know that Jackie pulled off a funeral for JFK that was as dignified as could be and justly honored an American president.

      We need not compare these two women of vastly different eras.

      Please.

    The National Gallery of Art is a treasure. When I lived in DC in my student years I’d visit the Gallery to get away from all the pressure—it was a pleasure to see all the great work. There was never an admission charge to get in, it truly is the people’s collection to admire and enjoy.

    Actually the NGA has two buildings. It looks like the First Ladies were in the older west building which has the more “classic” work on display. The east building is used more for exhibits of more or less contemporary work. The NGA shows government in partnership with involved citizens can accomplish get worthwhile things done.

    Now if Congress would only get on board with that “big, beautiful Wall”….

  36. I’m suspecting that she felt that with a simple white suit of some formal lines it needed a topper to offset the pop of color with the shoes.

    Try to imagine that suit with her hair down, or even up and you can see that she realized that the stark white suit needed to have a topper.

    Impeccable sense of style.
