First Lady Melania Trump made a sparkling appearance at the Congressional Ball on Thursday, joining husband President Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and Second First Lady Karen Pence in welcoming guest in the Grand Foyer at the White House.
Looking majestic, Melania wore a white crystal-embellished cape silk gown from Lebanese designer Reem Acra. Made from fluid silk-crepe, the gown has a dramatic cape-effect back that is outlined by its featuring sparkling crystals and flows beautifully at the floor. It retailed for $4,000, but unfortunately this exact Reem Acra gown is sold out.
President Trump made brief remarks as the House Judiciary Committee were continuing debates before expecting to approve two articles of impeachment.
“We’re having a very exciting month in Washington, D.C. There haven’t been too many like it,” Trump said as the audience laughed.
He thanked Melania for doing such a “beautiful job” decorating the Grand Foyer.
“I want to congratulate Melania,” Trump said. “She did such a beautiful job with the decorations.”
While some congress members were stuck in the House Judiciary Committee hearing, others were able to join in the Christmas fun with the President and First Lady. Among those spotted were House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), Congressman Mark Meadows (R-NC) and U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Samuel Alito.
Melania tweeted that it was a “beautiful evening at the White House.”

For once in a long time we have a First Lady with class. Anyone who can fluently communicate in more than one language has my admiration. On their first trip to Europe she went to a children’s hospital and visited and talked to the children in their language. To the best of my knowledge, the last First Lady that could do something like that was Mrs Kennedy.
Mrs Trump doesn’t have to prove anything to anyone. It’s refreshing to see that this First Lady isn’t out to try and make a bigger splash than the last one. She doesn’t need to. She is doing the things a First Lady should do. She stayed out of the political lime light and devoted her time to enhance the public image.
The only thing accomplished by Michele Obama, was forcing a disaster of a school lunch program. All it did was to waste millions of dollars and tons of food on lunches that the kids didn’t like, didn’t want and didn’t eat.

This impeachment is absolutely a witch hunt. They don’t have the law or the facts, they are simply obsessed with their fury that he is our President. To impeach a president who has proven to have one of the most successful presidencies, in spite of the fact that they continue to harass him, is political madness.
I believe that the American people are aware of this charade, and will overwhelmingly vote for our President Trump in 2020.
