Oh wait! Maybe this is a photo-op?? Ya think???
Gotta be. Notice the jewelry, the un-gloved hands and the perpetual scowl.
I have never seen anyone look so uncomfortable trying to look like a typical American. She's probably wondering why she can't just take her rightful place ahead of Jackie Kennedy as "Princess of 1600 Pennsylvania"
I wear a basic necklace (cross) and earrings (studs) every day, rain or shine. I don’t see her jewelry as inappropriate.
Gloves - I’d think if she was just harvesting for a photo opp, or just pulling a few things if she really was gardening, she probably wouldn’t need them.
Scowl - to be fair, it’s just a snapshot of a whole event. I agree that a scowl might be her “true face”, but overall this picture is not a bad one.
