Veering off from my normal political banter, I just had to borrow some of these comments from hashtag ‘cthuslhu’ in today’s Conservative Treehouse, since he could be my ‘brother from another mother’ or an identical twin!
Generally speaking, I’m not a fashion guy — as a writer I’m generally t-shirts and shorts with sneakers or casuals all the time — but Melania’s ‘weaponized fashion’ is keeping me in stitches. That she’s generally the most gorgeous person in any room she’s in, is absolute gravy.
The frequent wardrobe changes are hilarious — the getting-on-plane look, the getting-off-plane look; the attending-the-event-look, the after-the-event-comments look … In this episode, the arrogant Pooh-Bahs of Britain go, “let’s do black-tie — those colonist ruffians always look like uncultured barbarians compared to us cultured folks.”
So The Donald shows up looking like he owns the room; May looks like she’s in an off-the rack frock, purchased at 50% off (look at her nervously-shifty eyes looking sideways at the camera); Mr. May looks like a nebbish in a dusty suit he last wore five years ago; and Melania looks (and moves) like a floating Roman GODDESS.
Melania’s wit is not exclusively European (for instance, did you catch the gingham thing on the Fourth of July?). And it’s not just good taste — she often seems to be showing an emphasis or ironic counterpoint to the events around her through what she wears. She is a highly educated, cosmopolitan adult familiar with the most exalted of circles, is married to a billionaire POTUS and mother to his child. She ain’t some hick from the sticks or a perambulating womb. I believe she’s a VSG (‘very stable genius’, for the uninitiated) in her own right and that she’s weaponizing fashion for her own purposes — and it’s quite a show!
I have to believe that when they get back to their own private digs, Mr. and Mrs. Trump laugh like maniacs together. Melania’s definitely part of the magic.
Despite all the opposition and obstacles continually thrown his way, our President tells them the truth whether they want to hear it or not! Prime Minister May truly is way out of her depth, and as I opined the other day, my native Britain is sliding deeper and deeper into a hole they will never, ever be able to get out of.
As most of us realize, generally In life you reap what you sow, and unfortunately the ‘regular folks’ of the UK didn’t ask for any of this. Their politicians and effete elitist class began straying off the path of patriotism, liberty, and freedom many many moons ago, and are presently destined to disappear forever within the next twenty years unless someone strong like Freedom Warrior Trump comes along (Nigel Farage was there for the asking, but he was completely ignored).
Sad. Very, very, sad. But then again, unrecognized reality has a tendency to make people dumb and dumber. Caught napping at the crux of history.
And one last reminder on just who Melania is …. ‘Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.’ ~ Proverbs 31: 10-12
