Do you like how we have gotten to the point where no one even notices if we don’t see Melania Trump for weeks at a time? Granted, Laura Bush wasn’t an activist FLOTUS either, but Laura Bush was seen all the time – she liked being a hostess and doing softer, gentler photo ops. Melania seems so sulky whenever they try to make her do that stuff, and I get the feeling that Melania would just prefer to do her own thing completely, and never even see her husband or any of his cronies. Still, Melania was scheduled to fly to Davos this week with her bigly husband. Only now she’s canceled. Curious!
First lady Melania Trump, in a change of plans, will not be joining President Donald Trump on his trip to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, later this week. East Wing communications director Stephanie Grisham confirmed to CNN that the first lady’s decision to forgo the trip was based on “scheduling and logistical issues.”
A week ago, Grisham told CNN the first lady would be attending the annual meeting of influential financial leaders and business titans in a show of support for her husband, who intends to give remarks during his visit. The President’s own trip to Davos was also in flux until several hours ago, due to the government shutdown, which has been now been resolved. White House press secretary Sarah Sanders had said Monday that if the government reopened, Trump would keep his promise to attend.
