First Lady Melania Trump showed up to speak in the White House’s Blue Room on Monday wearing a $4,000 belted Gucci wool coat. The event was the Governors’ Spouses’ luncheon.
During her speech, Melania spoke about her “Be Best” initiative, focused on online bullying. The First Lady said, “I know the many issues associated with online safety will be hard to stop, but there is a need now more than ever to teach our children healthy behavior to secure a safer future for all of them.”
The stylish coat Melania was wearing is from Gucci’s 2019 Fall collection. It didn’t take long for anti-Trump liberals to see photos of Mrs. Trump in the coat and use it as an opportunity to disparage her.
Lovely. How much would that help the homeless?

Some spend a fortune on clothes while others are homeless, all I can say is God have mercy on us.

The only thing that stood out was the wrinkles in her face! https://t.co/rw5wSSEGnM

What a slap in the face to poor people, who can’t even pay for food, yet Melania can wear a $4,000- coat. Shame on you Melania.

Despite the attacks online from the left, Melania Trump was voted the second-most admired woman this year–only being beat by former First Lady Michelle Obama.
