First Lady Melania Trump took to Twitter on Thursday to share an image of herself reading to children on #worldbookday.
While some have accused her of being a very withdrawn first lady thus far, especially since she hasn’t been living in the White House, I love the fact that she is out there engaging with the community; especially with sick children and their families, who probably need the presence of the FLOTUS more than ever right now.
So while I give Melania props for trying, it’s definitely clear from the video below that it’s a skill that will need some polishing over the next four years. If I’m gonna be honest, the whole interaction is awkward as shit. I mean no one looks like they’re genuinely enjoying themselves and I am a deeply confused, as a viewer, because she has a son, and is around Ivanka’s children regularly, that I’m sure she knows how to connect with children just fine.
Hopefully next time her and her team come up with a different way to honor children.
