    Former First Lady Melania Trump gave a moving eulogy full of emotion at the funeral of her mother Amalija Knavs Thursday morning with her husband and family gathered around to say a final goodbye. “Her nurturing spirit had no limits, creating a legacy that will last for generations,” Melania Trump said of her mother, voice cracking with grief. “With her beauty and impeccable sense of style, she turned heads. But it was her unwavering dedication and hard work that made her exceptional.” She passed away on January 9, at the age of 78. The former first lady spoke of her...

    Former first lady Michelle Obama joined former President Bill Clinton, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Biden aboard Air Force One on Tuesday to travel to the funeral of former first lady Rosalynn Carter in Georgia. Michelle Obama, 59, traveled without her husband and Biden’s ex-boss, former President Barack Obama, amid renewed speculation that she could follow in Hillary Clinton’s footsteps and seek the nation’s top job for herself. The 81-year-old Biden faces dismal poll numbers ahead of next year’s expected rematch against former President Donald Trump, who leads in national and swing-state polls despite four pending criminal...

    Ukrainian first lady Olena Zelenska is warning of the world growing complacent as her country presses on in its fight against Russian invaders. Zelenska sat down for an interview with ABC News and said she was concerned global attention is turning away from Ukraine. “We see that sometimes people become reluctant,” Zelenska said. “People talk about ‘Ukraine fatigue.’ This is talk of our existence. We can’t stop fighting for ourselves.” “So my message is: Please don’t stop to help us fight,” she continued. Asked whether she feels the world’s focus is drifting elsewhere, Zelenska said, “I’m afraid of it, but...

    The privileges, interests, biographies, fetishes and investments of researchers typically remain subtext. —Michelle Fine, Working the HyphenI am frankly amazed at the intellectual ineptitude revealed by our recent Democrat First Ladies’ degree-awarded ventures in academic exposition and by the media adulation they have received for their efforts. Having recently published an analysis of Jill Biden’s doctoral dissertation, pointing out its utter inadequacy, I find it comes as no surprise that former First Lady Michelle Obama considers it a work of substantial merit and heaps accolades on Biden as “a brilliant woman who has distinguished herself in her profession.”Michelle Obama is...

    South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott is taking steps to run for president, people familiar with his plans said, adding to the stable of Republicans looking to wrest the party mantle from former President Donald Trump. Mr. Scott, the only Black Republican in the Senate, is testing a message with GOP voters in key early states focused on unity and optimism as some Republicans say it is time to move on from the Trump era. Mr. Trump has announced a bid for president in the 2024 election. Jennifer DeCasper, a Scott senior adviser, said he was “excited to share his vision...

    First lady Jill Biden will attend the Super Bowl in Arizona later this month, the president announced during a fundraiser in Philadelphia on Friday. Jill Biden, a Philadelphia native, is a devout Eagles fan and has been donning Eagles shirts recently while the team made its way to the Super Bowl. “Jill is out in California campaigning and she told me last week, ‘hope you don’t mind but I’m going to the Eagles game,’” President Biden said, referring to the Super Bowl. The president, an Eagles fan by marriage, joked to the fundraiser that he’s not as obnoxious of a...

    An old photo of first lady Jill Biden cooking with a gas stove has gone viral this week as the Biden administration is weighing the ban of such appliances, according to a report. "Hey [Antoni Porowski], what are you cooking tonight?" Biden wrote on Twitter in September 2020, including the photo of herself using a gas stove top to cook and directing the question toward Canadian chef and TV personality Antoni Porowski. The photo resurfaced just days after Bloomberg first reported that the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is considering a ban on gas stoves because of concerns about...

    NY Post ^ | 12/15/2022 | Mark Moore
    After initial skepticism, first lady Jill Biden is “all in” on her husband seeking another four-year term of office, according to a new report Thursday. As recently as early fall, Jill Biden, 71, was described as “not a proponent” of 80-year-old President Biden running again, but shifted her outlook after last month’s midterm elections, when Democrats kept control of the Senate and only narrowly lost their majority in the House, CNN reported, citing seven people familiar with the first lady’s thinking. Jill Biden is now fully on board with a possible 2024 campaign, despite one source describing her as “exhausted”...

    WASHINGTON — Federal prosecutors on Wednesday charged two men they say were posing as federal agents, giving free apartments and other gifts to U.S. Secret Service agents, including one who worked on the first lady’s security detail. The two men – Arian Taherzadeh, 40, and Haider Ali, 36 – were taken into custody as more than a dozen FBI agents charged into a luxury apartment building in Southeast Washington on Wednesday evening.

    The Washington Examiner has broken what is, so far, the best story of the year: It turns out that Jill Biden has her own “walk-up” music. That is, whenever she makes an official appearance, this music is played for her, just as Hail to the Chief is played when the president appears. Someone within the Marine Corps band wrote it, although there is some dispute as to whether the White House requested such music or the Marine Corps band members spontaneously felt that Jill needed that special song. Becket Adams broke the story: The Marine Corps band was instructed last...

One of the most honorable and important roles I have ever undertaken has been serving you, the American people, as the First Lady of this country. When I thought about where I wanted to put my time and efforts, there was no hesitation. BE BEST has one simple purpose—to help children.
