The ever-fashionable first lady Melania Trump shined again while at her speech on the opioid crisis at Liberty University.
The first lady paired a charcoal long sleeve jacket and pants with a dark scoop neck black top.
“I am here speaking to you in my official capacity as First Lady, but I want you to know I am also here as a mother,” said the first lady. “But rather than lecture you about the dangers of drug abuse as most mothers would, and should, I am going to tell you what I have learned in this past year because I believe education and learning is key to making the right decisions on your own behalf.”
“I have learned that many people who become addicted to drugs are too ashamed to ask for help,” she continued. “I have also learned that addiction is a disease. And like any illness, people need and deserve treatment.”
“We must commit to removing the stigma of shame that comes with addiction and helping change public opinion so that people find evidence-based treatment before it is too late.”
It’s the most wonderful time of the year and First Lady Melania Trump has taking her White House decorating responsibilities very seriously. Last year, her monochromatic decorations drew some criticism for being too cold and not inviting enough.
This year, the first lady went in a different direction and went for a more traditional style.
Watch the video below and take a tour of the new decorations!
With the exception of the red Christmas trees in one hallway of the White House, the decorations look a lot more familiar to those who prefer a more traditional holiday look.
The People’s House is now filled with Christmas trees and lights thanks to the first lady’s careful planning and eye for style.
President Donald Trump held the annual pardoning of the turkeys ahead of Thanksgiving last week at the White House. When Thanksgiving comes to mind, you might think of roast turkey, but at this ceremony, it wound up being roast Democrat.
While talking about how the two turkeys, named Peas and Carrots, faced off against each other in a “free and fair election,” President Trump landed a few zingers across the aisle.
Watch what he had to say in the video below:
“This was a fair election. Unfortunately, Carrots refused to concede and demanded a recount and we are still fighting with Carrots,” Trump joked during his speech. “We have come to a conclusion: Carrots, I’m sorry to tell you the result did not change. Too bad for Carrots.”
