Video || Trump Attends the Army-Navy Football Game

He was there Saturday, in Philadelphia. They seemed to like him.

One thing I notice always about these Trump videos. They don’t solely focus on the president. With the Obama videos – hers and his – every single frame had to include the star of the show.

Notice below it’s no more than 50 percent Trump. The focus is on the young men and women as well.

Similarly here with the first lady, although this one has a few more shots of her maybe. I mean, look at her, who can blame the cameraman?

Washington Post Critic: Melania Trump Coat “Looks Ridiculous”

At the Washington Post, even the fashion critic, Robin Givhan, is politicized.

From her piece today:

First lady Melania Trump unveiled this year’s White House Christmas decorations in a gauzy video in which she strolls through the public rooms marveling at their holiday luster. She gingerly adjusts a single red rose in a lush floral swag draped over a mantelpiece and delicately sprinkles glittery faux snow on one of the many white-decorated trees. The theme this year is “The Spirit of America,” and the dominant color is wintry white with festive bursts of holiday red. It’s all quite lovely. So there’s that.

For her tour, Mrs. Trump wears all white: a dress with a simple jewel neckline, white stiletto-heeled pumps and a white coat. The coat is draped over her shoulders as she strolls through the White House.

The coat looks ridiculous.

But more than a silly fashion folly, the coat is a distraction. It’s a discomforting affectation taken to a ludicrous extreme. In a video that is intended to celebrate the warmth and welcoming spirit of the holiday season, that simple flourish exudes cold, dismissive aloofness.

As Trump gazes pleasantly at all that her staff and a host of volunteers have accomplished, her attire suggests that she’s casually passing through and has little affinity for the occasion. She’s not getting comfortable, so why should you?

She has styled herself in a manner that contradicts what her staff has so often insisted — that she is an engaged hostess who sweats the details and frets about her guests’ comfort. Instead, she looks like the sort of host who greets her guests at the front door, tells them to remove their shoes and warns them not to sit on the Lalanne sheep.

Such petty nonsense. The first lady looks great, as do the decorations.

She is a wealthy woman dressed very stylishly. That’s what people like about the Trumps, they don’t pretend to be something they are not.

Trump Even Criticized ​for Talking to Kids on Christmas Eve

Without having any idea what was said by the child, critics are suggesting President Trump ruined the Santa myth for a seven-year-old as he and Melania were speaking to children “tracking Santa” with NORAD. Anyway, another year of biased press hatred of Trump comes to a merciful end, to be followed by . . .… Continue Reading
