Liberals never did know much about fashion or history.
So good to have a Classy First Lady in the White House again.
First lady Melania Trump has been planning for months for what was the first official state dinner at the White House in honor of French President Emmanuel Macron and his wife, Brigitte.
The First Lady opted to decorate the State Dining Room in the White House with white and gold tableware and elaborate floral centerpieces.
Trump and her ten-person East Wing staff have planned every detail of the dinner – from the menu, floral arrangements, and seat cushions on as many as 150 chairs, to the beautiful gifts that will be given to the Macrons – with every final decision made by the first lady, herself
But prior to the pomp and circumstance of Tuesday’s official state dinner, the Trumps and Macrons traveled the short distance on Monday from the White House in Washington, D.C., to Mt. Vernon in Virginia. Mt. Vernon, of course, is the preserved home of our nation’s first president, George Washington.
The first lady — who oversaw all of the arrangements for the state visit — had a specific reason for scheduling a dinner at Mt. Vernon.
Likely due to her deep sense of respect for tradition, Melania Trump chose a dinner at Mt. Vernon with the Macrons as a way to highlight the deep and lengthy relationship between the U.S. and France, which dates back to the American Revolution.
President Washington was actually granted honorary French citizenship by the National Assembly of France in 1792, and his historic home is loaded with numerous gifts presented to him and first lady Martha by French dignitaries.
Melania Trump no doubt had the historical significance of Mt. Vernon as it relates to America’s long relationship with France in mind as she carefully planned out all of the details of the visit. Thankfully, that attention to history and tradition has not gone completely unnoticed.
Melania Trump did an exceptional job of planning the state dinner. She is beautiful, smart and we all should be proud of our first lady and pres.
