Aw…I’m all teary-eyed now.
Melania Trump hasn’t even been in her official First Lady duties for a full week, and she’s already sending out a message of compassion and courage, grace under scrutiny.
But above all else, she’s a class-act..and a bit of a softie.
Her choice of outfit and her natural poise during the inauguration of her husband, Donald Trump, took front and center during most media broadcasts of the event. And shortly after, while performing one of her first official duties in the high office, it was more of the same.
What did she do?
“First lady Melania Trump took the spotlight Saturday as she led a standing ovation for a rousing rendition of How Great Thou Art by a blind singer who suffers from multiple medical conditions. The first lady, along with President Donald Trump, the Trump family, and Vice President Mike Pence and his family, attended the traditional National Prayer Service Saturday at the National Cathedral,” Western Journalism reported.
It was quite a sight to see.
Mariana VanHoose, 20, is blind and suffers from cerebral palsy, but still sang the hymn from the steps of the cathedral. And as she was singing, Mrs. Trump was caught wiping a tear from her eye.
And then when the hymn ended, both first lady and President Trump rose to offer a congratulatory standing ovation.
This is the stuff that makes a president resonate with the people.
President Obama’s big failing, aside from his politics, was the fact he never really seemed to connect with the people, and neither could his wife. Michelle Obama’s big claim to fame came when she spoke of her husband’s election to the presidency being the first time she was proud to be an American.
Melania, by contrast, has only been a citizen of this country for a decade or so, yet has already struck a sentimental note with the average American. Trump’s critics are no doubt rallying to attack. But when it comes to Melania, it’s probably going to be hard for even the most vicious of anti-conservatives to find anything to slam her for or condemn her over.
It’s tough, after all, to make a case against grace.
