First lady Melania Trump steps out
The Hill ^ | May 7, 2018 | Jonathan Easley and Alexis Simendinger

First Lady Melania Trump steps out of her comfort zone and into the spotlight today.

Melania Trump, who has carved out a private life as she and President Trump raise their son Barron Trump at the White House, will unveil her formal initiatives as first lady at 3 p.m. in the Rose Garden.

Her focus will be on the well-being of children, a White House source told us Sunday, and she wants her portfolio to be a bit broader than the single initiatives often identified with previous first ladies.

That’s in line with Melania Trump’s favorite issues during her 12 months in Washington to date: A push to combat cyberbullying; raising awareness about children’s struggles during the nation’s opioid epidemic; and photo sprays of carefully planned visits to children’s hospitals and to comfort families at disaster relief centers....

The vermin in the press corps will try and embarrass her with insinuations her husband is a bully and questions about Stormy Daniels

[I seem to recall Lady Bird Johnson spearheading highway beautification. ]

Of course, no doubt using union labor.
IE: kickback to the labor unions.

Lady Bird has done a great job with wild flowers and highway beautification.

Most have been volunteers.

Saw her in the Rose Garden talking about kids and the opoid crisis.

Traditional First Lady stuff. Every one had a positive reaction.

If you wonder why people adore Melania, this is why.

She has no interest in higher office.

There are many median strips and roadside areas that are very attractive with flowers, blossoming trees or shrubs that are the result of Lady Bird’s efforts. I am no fan of Lyndon, but think she deserves kudos for inspiring highway beautification.

Lady Birds influences were strongly positive. Unlike her wretched husband.

Wow. Our First Lady has incredible style.

I must say I also approve of the slogan "Be Best". It encourages integrity, hard work and achievement. Things sorely lacking in America today.

Here’s the White House video of the event .... it’s very nice. The President was ... dare I say ... affectionate!
