First Lady Melania Trump Bowls Over Britain….

First Lady Melania Trump bowled over Britain with joy as President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Theresa May held bilateral discussions.

Mrs Trump joined Philip May for a visit to the Royal Hospital Chelsea in London on Friday morning.  Melania was, well, ‘radiant’ as she joined Chelsea Pensioners and local schoolchildren for the game of lawn bowling, and ended her turn on the green with a high-five to a Chelsea Pensioner, much to his delight.

Man-o-man…. do we have the best first lady, or what?

Pass me the winnamins.

    AS I said before: Melania Trump, out FLOTUS, has the knowledge and perspicacity to plan her wardrobe for this particular trip to indicate clearly that she is not only very savvy as regards fashion, BUT—also to indicate clearly that she understands the symbolism and impact of costume.
    The pink suit that she wore today when she met Elizabeth II is just the type of suit that one would expect a female European royalty to wear. The unbelievable gown she wore to Blenheim Palace is a modern-day interpretation of what a 17th or 18th century female royal would wear. FLOTUS knows that what she wears in this regard is NOT lost on the people who also understand the link between costume and symbolism, such as the Queen’s retinue.
    Our FLOTUS is saying that while she is a proud American citizen and the wife of the President of the United States, she knows that she can be considered as the equal to the spouse of a visiting royal. Contrast this to the “gaucherie” of Michelle Obama. You will NOT find gaucherie with Melania Trump.

      Juxtaposed against the last Residents wife, dressing as a StayPufft Marshmellow.

      Virginian, when the President and First Lady were in Warsaw, the cretins in our press were critical of the colorful, and kind casual dress she wore while the President was giving his historic speech.
      You commented ^^^ above ab her understanding of symbolism, and this Warsaw trip was the first time I read about this.
      Turns out, she wore the colorful dress as a comment to the older Polish women who were forced to wear the drab of communism, and how when they became free, colorful clothing was everywhere…a symbol of their newfound freedom.
      Yes, the women understood.

      Concerned Virginian, what I like and laughed about was how the elder gentleman in the red coat was having a lifetime thrill following and being with our FLOTUS. Slapping hands was obviously the highlight of his day and life! Both Trump and Melania love children and children see and feel that love, and each time she visits hospitals, schools or groups, the children are excited and want to be close to her. Too bad their parents are nincompoops!

    I am so proud today to be an American who voted for VSGPDJT. Melania with the Pensioners and children and the Honor Gaurd with the Queen brought tears to my eyes.

    By far the coolest. UK loves a smiling caring positive spirited Princess, and association thru mental anchor, a First Lady. IMHO. Every lib deranged comment costs the source dearly.

    Just an FYI here. I believe those senior redcoats with the medals fought at Rorke’s Drift. They’re invited to all the Queens get-togethers.

      Had to look this up: Melania was visiting the redcoat “Pensioners” who are residents of the Royal Hospital Chelsea.
      These retired British soldiers have chosen to surrender their pensions. In exchange they receive board, lodging, clothing, free medical care, a Club with bar, lounges, restaurant, space for gardening, and lawn bowls in case First Lady Melanie Trump comes to visit you.

      ( and The Battle of Rorke’s Drift was 1879) 🙂

    Our FLOTUS is a gift from God! She has been everything you could ask for and than some. Her love of children and her respect of her elders is absolutely amazing to watch.

      Amen Felice. I was just pondering how God groomed her for such a time as this. We know he groomed DJT, but our First Lady is equally important in my opinion. Especially NOW. She is beloved worldwide and our media should be deeply ashamed of their inhumane treatment of this glorious creature FLOTUS Melania Trump. A woman full of grace, beauty, kindness and meaningful thoughtfulness. I simple adore her.

        He (God) didn’t, groom her, that is. He wonderfully gave us the ultimate gift of free will, of no predestination. Which makes the First Lady’s achievements that much spectacular. She wasn’t ordained by God for her life. She took the opportunity she was given and achieved it.

        Both her and President Trump have looked to The Light for guidance, and have used the gifts that He has given them. And even better, they have spread their joy to us. (A hint of their ‘rightness’ can be seen in any photo of the First Couple. Their eyes show happiness, and purpose, and, well, glory. The eyes are the windows of the soul. And these two people have wonderful souls, just wonderful, beautiful.)

        Which makes the First Wookie’s spectacular unachievement and negativity a denial of God’s gift of free will, almost as if some other power was advising that person. And in comparison to the Trumps, the previous couple’s photos show unhappy souls. Their eyes are… dead. Shameful. Hopefully those two will find the Light before their time is up, and they salvage their souls.

    It’s difficult to find the right words to describe the effect FLOTUS has. It’s not just that she’s stunning to look at, poised, graceful, gracious, respectful, fun loving, an attentive listener, and on and on. Many comments above have hit on more of her attributes.

    But there’s something about her presence that very few women, even other tall, beautiful women like Ivanka, have. I think it has something to do with the fact that Melania never seems aware of herself or the effect she’s having, and she NEVER seems self-conscious, which is quite something for a former model, imo. She never fusses with herself as so many beautiful women do. She never looks down shyly or coyly, as so many also do. She never appears to be “vogue-ing.” It’s like when she steps out into the world, she does it from a place of comfort and authenticity and genuineness and warmth.

    SUCH a breath of fresh air in today’s world. ❤️

    I simply cannot add any more superlatives to describe our lovely FLOTUS, Melania!! She has rarely – indeed, if EVER!! – made a misstep in her important role as an American ambassador!

    I agree Mrs Trump dresses impeccably and the sport is called lawn bowls, not lawn bowling.

    Melania embodies…

    Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she laughs at the time to come.
    She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.
    She looks well to the ways of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness.
    Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her:
    “Many women have done excellently, but you surpass them all.”
    Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
    Give her of the fruit of her hands, and let her works praise her in the gates. (From Proverbs 31)

    …but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious. (From 1 Peter 3)

    A few tweets from a pictorial & video thread for your consideration, in light of President Trump’s recent “Simpson’s Tweet” & FLOTUS Melania’s “The Prisoner” (also covered by The Simpson’s) dress –

    “Maybe one needs be a fan of The Prisoner to see some fun & games & maybe Multi-D Chess (or is that Chequers), going on”

    Parody of The Prisoner from The Simpsons episode,
    “The Computer Wore Menace Shoes.”

    “They just didn’t get it, but they do now!”

        It’s not the cartoons as much President Trump having full understanding of, “Politics is downstream from culture”, and how his one tweet & Melania’s dress, tie so much seemingly unconnected popular culture together with major world politics.

        He did his ‘Simpson’s Tweet’ just before going to the UK, where “The Prisoner” was made, then FLOTUS Melania wears a ‘Victoria Beckham’ dress (this is during The World [Football] Cup), that is almost a direct copy of the capes worn in “The Prisoner”, a cult[ure] classic loved around the world that “The Simpson’s” also do an episode on, titled, “The Computer Wore Menace Shoes”, where it ends with –

        “The Island. … Truly God’s Country” –
