The day began with a hat. It ended with the hat, too. Not literally, but nostalgically. Over the course of 12 hours, no Cézanne at the National Gallery, no forest of cherry blossom branches, no Clinton or Bush china, no goat cheese gâteau, not even Chanel haute couture could compare to that magnificent halo of pure white light perched atop first lady Melania Trumps perfectly groomed head. Nothing else mattered. There was nothing else.
That hat, broad-brimmed with a high, blocked crown, announced the first ladys presence as boldly and theatrically as a brigade of trumpeters. It was the bright white hat of a gladiator worn on an overcast day, a kind of glamorous public shield when sunglasses would not do at all. That hat was a force field that kept folks, the wrong folks, from getting too close.
It was a diva crown. A grand gesture of independence. A church hat. The Lord is my shepherd. Deliver us from evil. Amen.
Mrs. Trump began her Tuesday in the hat when she greeted French President Emmanuel Macron and his wife, Brigitte, at the state arrival ceremony on the South Lawn. She stood erect on her stiletto heels next to President Trump, who wore a dark overcoat, which was neatly buttoned, and a blue and white striped tie.

The idiot who wrote that will probably get a prize for great writing.
Glorious! What a beauty.
Age 21...had a hat like that in 1965. It was my Easter Hat.
Racist FLOTUS wearing her WHITE force-field diva crown!
These people are nuts.
I thought the article was sweet - if it wasn’t written tongue-in-cheek. Love the hat. I wish ladies still wore hats to church.
My Easter hats had fake flowers around the brim.
My hat says “John Deere”.
Umm. This is the same woman writer who heard racist whistles bc Melania wore white at the GOP convention, then praised Hillary, also dressed in white.
I loved that hat. The usual les miserables are carping about it and how wonderful she looked wearing it.
Melania has the natural attractiveness, good taste, fashion flair, poise, manners and sense of propriety that place her at the top of “America’s Best First Ladies Ever” list.
These are the same attributes that the Obama licking media pretended (and still pretends) that the oafish Michelle Obama has when in fact she doesn’t have even one of them.
Just a distraction so that the horn dogs weren’t always staring at her fine booty.
just washed her hair ?
I can’t even fathom the depths of hatred these MSM liberals have fallen into, if they have to mock God in order to hate anyone associated with Trump.
I am shocked that the ComPost had something nice to say about the Trumps.
Pure class. I never get tired of saying it.
Is that the dimniutive Robert ReichhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhUH
standing between the Wookie and Oturd?
