Melania walking in flats on the Great Wall of China and handing out stuffed bald eagles while looking at a real giant panda and Trump with his long hair blowing madly in the Chinese wind...

Great pics at The Daily Mail.

$2675 for that coat. But God damn, it looks good on her.

Love Trump's hair blowin in the wind--I think it's great that we have a Baby Boomer President who, at 71, wears his hair just the way he did in his 20s.

That takes balls.

Trump: "That's not a wall, this is a wall!"

Nonapod said...

The Donald's hair is like spun gold extruded from a magic cotton candy machine.

I like the black flower dress she had on. She represents the Country well.

Darrell said...

I will one day see them walking on the Great Wall of America.

Drago said...

"I like the black flower dress she had on. She represents the Country well"

She was proud of her country even before her husband was elected President, unlike you know who.

Darrell said...

Any assholes here still saying that Trump wears a toupée?

Mountain Maven said...

POTUS and FLOTUS, so much better than their predecessors! They go overseas and still love their country.

Rob said...

Melania may not be a bonafide beauty icon like Michelle Obama, but she ain't bad.

The Seven Wonders of the Ancient World were:

the Great Pyramid at Giza, Egypt.
the Hanging Gardens of Babylon.
the Statue of Zeus at Olympia, Greece.
the Temple of Artemis at Ephesus.
the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus.
the Colossus of Rhodes.
the Lighthouse at Alexandria, Egypt.

The Ancient World must have had some suspicion of some civilization existing far to their east, since some goods - silk, jewels, etc. - from China made their way to the Mediterranean countries, but nothing specific was known. Thus the Great Wall was not one of the 7 wonders - it had not been heard of.

Lovely lovely lovely. Even Trumps hair, just lovely.

I like checking out Melania's clothes. She is always perfectly dressed for the occasion.

I'm very glad we won't be looking at XL pantsuits for the next 7 years.

DanTheMan said...

Too bad Hillary didn't win. She could have worn her Mao jacket...

Hagar said...

125 years ago my grandfather rented a guide and two Mongolian ponies and set out from Peking to see the Great Wall. It took him 3 days of "hard riding" (though most of one day was spent in the Valley of the Ming Emperors) to get there. It was a great experience.

Blogger Drago said... She was proud of her country even before her husband was elected President, unlike you know who. No one has ever questioned Melania's loyalty to Socialist Republic of Slovenian.

Michael K said...

Howard has to snark.

She is gorgeous and has a nice chest, too.

Original Mike said...

I read "handing out stuffed bald eagles" and thought OMG!

Howard said...

Jesus, Mike. Nice Chest? Sounds like your talking about Arnold Schwarzenegger, not a woman. It also sounds like you weren't weaned properly as a child. I think there's a pill for that, ask your Doctor if demellonphile is right for you.

traditionalguy said...

White Supremacy meets Yellow Supremacy. And Christianity emerges the winner. Good job Melania

tcrosse said...

They dropped the 'Socialist' in 1990. Try to keep up.

Deb said...

She seems very natural and at ease, especially around children.

i loved the caption under the photo of Trump with his hair blowin' in the wind: "The wind appeared brisk..."

Big Mike said...

Her coat is by Dolce and Gabbana. Are the American designers still having their hissy fit and refusing to dress Melania?

exiledonmainstreet, green-eyed devil said...

Howard are you saying immigrants can never be truly American?

How nativist of you.

Anonymous said...

Judging from the photos at the link, China also has a stylish and attractive First Lady in Peng Liyuan.

traditionalguy said...

Speaking of conspiracy theories, there are some really hot ones going on as we speak. Supposedly , Mueller has sealed indictments to arrest the Podestas and Clintons on money laundering with the now arrested Saudi trillion airs guys who bought and paid for Obama and for Hillary's campaign . Hillary's favors to the Saudis included help with child trafficking of orphans. Oh, and the Vegas shooter was part of the cover up.

Now, back to Trump's crimes of actually speaking to Russians and Tweeting.

Comanche Voter said...

Great style; easy on the eyes. Seemingly a nice person as well, focused on raising her son. This is a First Lady that I don't have to worry about--sort of like Laura Bush in that regard, although the two are very different people.

Ambrose said...

Were they real bald eagles that had been stuffed? CNN is not gonna like that - "Jeffrey Toobin - stuffing an endangered species is a felony is it not?" "Right you are Anderson."

Original Mike said...

Mature bald eagles are too large. It had to have been baby bald eagles.

Darrell said...

Baby bald eagle plush toys. Perhaps made in China, perhaps not.

whitney said...

I enjoyed looking at Melania's outfits. Tom & Lorenzo avoid reporting on her like the plague huh

Howard said...

tcrosse: once a socialist, always a KGB agent.

Wednesday: no, I am not a nativist, I wear a bathing suit at the beach.

Darrell said...

Rob said...

Funny they never show you Michelle without a wig. Her hair is the same length as Barack's--has been since their Chicago days.

exiledonmainstreet, green-eyed devil said...

"I wear a bathing suit at the beach. "

Thank goodness for that.

Original Mike said...

No baby eagles were harmed in the making of this message.

Melania is drop-dead gorgeous when she is smiling or otherwise animated, but she has the worst case of RBF ever.

mockturtle said...

Beautiful photography, beautiful First Lady. Safe to say the Trumps made a hit in China.

Bill R said...

Melania is the number one cause of Global Warming

lb said...

Flotus is always immpeccably dressed..American designers blew it but having their little hissy fits.

lb said...

by not but...sorry

tcrosse said...

...she has the worst case of RBF ever.

That's the model look, so as not to distract from the clothes on display. It's not an easy skill to master.

Althouse can annsplain this to you.

More Bond villainess vibes (in a good way) than RBF to me.

Otto said...

she is one sexy FLOTUS.

David said...

Wow, her beauty really comes out in these photos.

The smile, which she uses sparingly in public, really shines when she is with the children. She seems actually delighted by them, not fake interested.

Drago said...

Howard: "No one has ever questioned Melania's loyalty to Socialist Republic of Slovenian."

Ha!

Funny is funny.

Ann Althouse said...

"Were they real bald eagles that had been stuffed?"

They sure look real to me.

Fabi said...

If you don't braise bald eagle for at least three hours the meat is really tough.

"If you don't braise bald eagle for at least three hours the meat is really tough"

Old joke popular in our neck of the woods....logging country.

A guy is caught by a ranger eating a Bald Eagle and is consequently put in jail for the crime. On the day of his trial, the conversation went something like this:

Judge: "Do you know that eating a Bald Eagle is a federal offense?"

Man: "Yes, I did. But if you let me argue my case, I'll explain what happened."

Judge: "Proceed."

Man: "I got lost in the woods. I hadn't had anything to eat for two weeks. I was so hungry. Next thing I see is a Bald Eagle swooping down at the lake for some fish. I knew that if I followed the eagle I could maybe steal the fish. Unfortunately, in the process of taking the fish I killed the eagle. I figured that since I killed the eagle I might as well eat it since it would be more disgraceful to let it rot on the ground."

Judge: "The court will take a recess while we analyze your testimony."

15 minutes goes by and the judge returns.

Judge: "Due to the extreme circumstance you were under and because you didn't intend to kill the eagle, the court will dismiss the charges. But if you don't mind the court asking, what does a Bald Eagle taste like?"

Man: "Well, your honor, it is hard to explain. The best I can describe it is maybe kind of between a California Condor and a Spotted Owl."

Fabi said...

DBQ! :-)

Darrell said...

Funny joke, but in real life that woman that gave Hillary a dreamcatcher back in the day, made with eagle feathers she had picked up at the zoo on the floors of the cages, was sentenced in U.S. District Court in Urbana to two years of probation and fined $1,200. Possession of just a feather is punishable by up to six months in jail and a fine of as much as $56,000. Possession with intent to sell the feathers could bring up to a year in federal prison and a fine of up to $100,000.

Birches said...

Eh. I didn't really love the skirt. It didn't hang right in the wind.

YoungHegelian said...

The photos with the FLOTUS & the Chinese schoolkids at the zoo are really impressive. She seems to be genuinely enjoying it.

I also imagine the Chinese boys enjoyed it too. How often do they get to be that close to a gorgeous foreign model, FLOTUS or not?

Drago said...

Has LLR Chuck called for the impeachment of Melania for flat footwear yet?

MacMacConnell said...

The woman is top drawer.

Howard said...

again, the chest reference.
What Knockers

twgin said...

From one of the captions:

(she) spent about 30 minutes walking along the 5,500mile-long wall

this is one fast FLOTUS !

The First Babe. The Wall shoot is well done; great glass; incredible images.
