When it comes to Melania Trump, even an old tweet has the potential to go viral again. And with Christmas nearing, it's no wonder that a video of the FLOTUS from last Christmas has, for a second time, consumed Twitterverse.
The video is of Trump standing standing eerily still as she watched a ballet performance inside the White House. Standing on crimson carpeted steps, the First Lady cut quite an awkward figure with many commenting that she looked stupefied and uncomfortable. Some commented that the video was proof of how lonely and miserable Trump was, even when ballerinas were performing for her.
Just your average day covering FLOTUS and ballerinas at the White House... pic.twitter.com/BlCNR7OhwW— Judy Kurtz (@JudyKurtz) November 27, 2017
The huge glasses, standing stiffly alone, her obvious awkwardness. That's not a criticism. The woman looks absolutely miserable all the time, even when ballerinas perform for her.— Lisa Bonanno (@TrustissuesLisa) November 27, 2017
I've never seen anyone look as awkward and uncomfortable in their own skin as Melania does all of the time.— Becky Black 📚 (@beckyblackbooks) November 27, 2017
Many had made jokes at the time at the expense of the First Lady.
Is the ballet called “Economic Anxiety?”— Charles B (@charles_emails) November 27, 2017
Seems like a bad dream. I have to stop eating pizza before bed.— Lesbarb (@lesbarb22) November 27, 2017
Thinking: "Might have been a mistake to have that floor polished this morning."— Becky Black 📚 (@beckyblackbooks) November 27, 2017
The video, tweeted originally by columnist Judy Kurtz last year recently got shared once recently by a Twitter user Humans of Late Capitalism. And true to its character, Twitterati came up with some hilarious new reactions.
She looks like she's waiting until they're done so she can cross the floor.— N3!L (@chimpvsdog) November 28, 2018
Wow that''s creepy..it's like some part of being human is missing from her. Or..she's really heavily sedated so she won't run away. Or...she has a GPS implanted in her to track her down. Or...there's a factory deep in the woods somewhere in eastern Europe, a robot manfc't factory— CriticalThinking (@LifeIsTooAbsurd) November 28, 2018
