Skip to comments.#FLOTUSFriday: Let’s Put a Little Butt Into It
Posted on 08/31/2018 6:11:15 AM PDT by NOBO2012
The reliably, rabidly anti-Trump media never misses an opportunity to behave like the mean girls they are. Take this weeks ceremonial planting of an oak sapling - an ancestor of the White House Eisenhower oak tree.
Melania along with descendants of James Monroe and Dwight Eisenhower plant a sapling to replace a tree damaged earlier this year
Had this happened during the Os Occupation we would have been treated to oohs and ahhs from the press about the environmental importance of planting trees in these trying times of global warming, along with a touching story highlighting the symbolism of presidential ancestors participating in the planting of a White House ancestral oak along with a sidebar note explaining the poignancy in the Age of Obama of one of those ancestors being a descendant of James Monroe who although he was critical of the practice - owned slaves himself.
But since its the Trump White House and all things related to Trump must be destroyed we get instead snotty stories from home and overseas about boob jobs, stilettos and expensive skirts.
Did she wear 4in Christian Louboutin stilettos to aerate the soil? Did she choose a $4,000 floral Valentino skirt for its horticultural motif? Maybe Trump decided she would just wear what she liked and that it was the tree and the mud that were inappropriate out there. After all, when she gardened in a plaid shirt (albeit a Balenciaga one) and Converse, people laughed at the fact that the Converse looked box fresh. - The Guardian
But I dont recall appropriate wardrobe ever being an issue when the press had the POTUS and FLOTUS they thought they deserved:
This time around, Trump's trolling took the form of a pair of pastel pink Christian Louboutin stilettos; a tight, sleeveless tank top; and a $3,950 A-line Valentino skirt, which was made in Italy but, coincidentally enough, via the collection's theme and its floral print, pays homage to Cubathe same country that the Eisenhower administration targeted with the (failed) Bay of Pigs Invasion, plotting to overthrow Fidel Castro.** All that certainly matched the golden shovel Trump usedand further showed off by abstaining from using gardening glovesthough it also seems to further the idea that she truly Really Doesn't Care about the media's scrutiny, which is she must know is guaranteed at this point.
Heh, sounds like W magazine enjoys a bit of trolling themselves. More:
In contrast to the pair of (brand-new) Converse and a (Balenciaga) flannel she wore when getting to work in the White House garden back in September, Trump didn't even pretend to go through the motions of dressing for the occasion. While she did indeed make it to the dirt, she remained loyal to her usual uniform, which is to say an expensive ensemble practically designed to incite outrage.
Let me show you the proper way to use a shovel
Now that weve established skill, lets discuss technique and style:
Put a little butt into it (for the record, Hillary is wearing heals for this tree planting)
(as is Michelle) Or a lot of butt
And these people still wonder who Melanias I really dont care message was for?
**For the record the Bay of Pigs, although conceived by the CIA during the Eisenhower administration, was actually approved and carried out by the JFK administration. But then historical accuracy is not a big deal to journalists these days, and why blame a Democrat for something you can pin on a Republican.

In the first picture, it almost looks like Putin and Merkel are showing #FLOTUS how to bury the bodies.
Looks like a burial plot just about big enough for Vince foster.
WTH, you don’t plant trees in August! You plant trees when they are dormant in the winter. That tree is at great risk of not having enough water and too much heat to make it.
I am a master gardener and a tree farmer, I know how trees survive past their first few years and when they can’t.
Y’all beat me to it.
Bill and Hillary look like they are dressed for a funeral and shoveling dirt on a grave.
If you are a master gardener you must be aware of climate zones. In the north, many trees are planted going into fall. It’s really not that hot this time of year. Plus, anyone with a clue would be watering that tree on a regular basis.
As far as planting a tree in the winter, I’ll give you a shovel when it is 30 below zero and see how far down you can dig. :)
And no matter what the leftists say, Melania Trump will still be more beautiful and classy and dignified than any of their first ladies. They can make a lot of vinegar with all the sour grapes they have.
Hah! wipes a bead of sweat from his forewhead...
“You plant trees when they are dormant in the winter. “
You’d have to use an ice auger to dig a hole in the perma frost where I live.
Funny. I think of all leftists as mean "girls". Ain't a man among them.
Michelle’s legs look like a bridge you could drive a semi under.
Pooh! It’s in the 50’s at night now in Minnesota. It could be 90 next week however. That’s what the hose if for, watering new plantings. :)
It’s ok. The White House has a permanent garden staff who will do everything necessary for the tree, including digging it up now that the ceremony is done and replacing it with a fresh one later if necessary.
