President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump welcomed Chinese President and First Lady Xi Jinping and Peng Liyuan at President Trumps Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida.
The two first families seem to have immediately forged a bond that will help them in future dealings.
“It is a great honor to have the president of china and his incredibly talented wife, a great, great celebrity in China, a great singer. It’s an honor to have you in the United States,” the commander-in-chief said. “We had a long discussion already. So far, I have gotten nothing. Absolutely nothing. But we have developed a friendship. I can see that. I think, long-term, we are going to have a very, very great relationship and I look very much forward to it.”
Melania cut an impressive figure herself in her sleeveless red daisy-appliqué crepe midi dress by Valentino, estimated at $4,000. Though understated, it made quite an impression on everyone who saw it.
This is in stark contrast to the former First Lady, Michelle Obama when she and her husband greeted the Chinese President In 2011. The then-first lady drew some well-deserved criticism when she wore a dress from British label Alexander McQueen for the visit by previous Chinese president Hu Jintao.
While Melania has garnered much criticism for basically just not being Michelle Obama I don’t think there’s much doubt that President Trump has a real live lady with class and dignity to support him in his diplomatic indevours.
Unfortunately, for her, she’s been the collateral damage along the way as many Americans prove that racism is alive and well, and sometimes it is turned on those who you’d least expect. Somehow a former model turned model parent isn’t good enough to be our First Lady to the ever tolerant Democrats. But the much louder and out of touch Michelle Obama was picture perfect because of her dark skin.
But it can’t be racism because the person being discriminated against is white, right? If you listen to the left apparently if you’re white or in any way moderately successful you’re just expected to take it on the chin when someone of darker skin, lesser status in the business world, claims to be a different gender or in some way feels victimized wants to harras you. They even make up new words all the time so that each person can have a classification to put on their ailment and make those who utter words against it guiltu of a hate crime.
Yeah, like I said, racism is alive and well in America today and sometimes it’s against the immigrants that you don’t expect.
