Stories abound regarding the domicile at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C.
Of particular interest are its secrets and its rooms that have been sealed or off-limits to the public for decades.
Rumors have been swirling about movable furniture, bookshelves, and panels that fill the White House.
And by now, everyone knows about the legend of the Secret Society of the Masons, and how they had a big hand in the White House’s planning and construction.
The Oval Office desk itself, which has changed over the years, sometimes even from one president to the next, was once upon a time so intricately built that one president hid documents in various hidden compartments.
Now, First Lady Melania Trump, who is VERY good at giving America respect, is getting a lesson in history while in the White House, but also in the special aspects of its many secrets.
And she has decided that one previously off-limits part of the building should be opened up.
“All those Americans lucky enough to have toured the White House in years past may now have a new reason to revisit the historic building.
On Friday, First Lady Melania Trump announced that one of the landmark’s more entertaining rooms – the famous White House movie theater – will now be open to the public ‘for the first time in history.’

Along with her announcement, Trump said:
“The White House belongs to the people of this country.
I believe everyone who takes the time to visit and tour the White House should have as much access to its rich history and wonderful traditions as possible.
It is my hope that our visitors truly enjoy the newest piece of the tour.“

Used by many presidents for differing reasons, it will once again host the people who pay for it: the American people.
And really, the further we go in the Trump administration, the more Melania makes Michelle look pretty bad by comparison.
