White House Dismisses Criticism That Melania's Coat in 9/11 Photo Features Image of Tower Being Hit by a Plane
President Donald Trump tweeted a photograph of First Lady Melania Trump and him commemorating the September 11 terrorist attacks, but a detail on the First Lady's coat is raising eyebrows.
Eagle-eyed observers noticed that the white stitching of Melania's coat resembles a skyscraper—and a button flap on top of it resembles a plane, resulting in an unfortunate resemblance to a plane flying into a tower. Not the best look for 9/11.
The First Lady of the United States garners a lot of attention from the media and the public. In the modern era of social media and smart phones, the last few FLOTUS saw analysis of every public appearance and outfit they wore skyrocket.
As a former model, the current FLOTUS Melania Trump knows her way around a photo-op, but likely never faced the level of public scrutiny into her private life she experiences now. While she did marry a man who constantly courts publicity for his primary source of income—trading on the Trump brand— did she sign up for this?
Former First Lady Barbara Bush, whose love for reading galvanized her efforts to advance universal literacy and who founded the Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy, passed away at her home in Houston. She was 92.
Bush, long considered one of the more popular members of her famous family, had been in failing health for some time and had been in and out of the hospital multiple times in the last year while battling with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and congestive heart failure. She made headlines after deciding to stop seeking medical treatment to prolong her life.
