I was looking at a photo on Drudge a few minutes ago showing Donald Trump making his victory speech after winning the New Hampshire primary. Off to one side was Melania, she of squinty eye, thick accent, dour expression and deliberate non-participant in her husband’s campaign.
On the other side was Ivanka, charming, intelligent, beautiful, radiant, heavily pregnant and with a million-watt smile, all this after having made 7 campaign stops in New Hampshire in one day to promote her father’s White House bid.
And it occurred to me that should he win the White House, Donald might be doing everyone a favor by having Ivanka fill much of the traditional role of First Lady. She would be great hosting White House dinners, meeting with foreign dignitaries and heads of state, and would be a great ambassador for both Trump and the U.S. on the world stage. And she seems to be respected by almost everyone, Republican, Democrat, young and old, male and female.
Frankly, I’m not all that big on Melania. I get the feeling she’d rather just stay in her golden palace in the sky in New York with her young son while Trump does his thing in Washington.
So does anyone see anything wrong with this scenario, whether it would be a bad idea or just not doable for some reason?
P.S. - Here’s an article on the Trump family victory appearance. To her credit, Melania does look pleased and is smiling brightly at her husband in one of the photographs, so who knows, maybe I’m wrong. At any rate, I’d still like to hear what everyone here, primarily as Democrats, think of the idea.
