Melania Trump Surprises Children at Youth Conference in First Public Appearance Since Jacket Uproar
The first lady made no mention of the "I REALLY DON'T CARE, DO U?" outerwear as she surprised the Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) event.
Teens erupted into cheers for the first lady as she made an unannounced appearance Monday during a Virginia youth conference.
The students gave Melania Trump a standing ovation in her first public appearance since the uproar over the controversial jacket she donned while on her way to visit an immigrant child detention center.
The children at the annual Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) conference chanted "U-S-A! U-S-A!" when she arrived.
"Kindness, compassion, and positivity are very important traits in life," she said to the crowd. "It is far easier to say nothing than it is to speak words of kindness. It is easier to judge quickly than to take time to understand. It is often easier to see a glass half-empty than half full."
She made no mention of the jacket she wore last week when she departed Washington for Texas.
Meanwhile, Alec Baldwin, who impersonates President Trump on "Saturday Night Live," reached out to Melania over the weekend, asking her to join him on the show.
“Dear Melania — We know what you’re thinking. What you’re feeling,” he wrote on Twitter Saturday. "You are quaking w anticipation. Shuddering w a strange, newfound courage. Come. Come over to the light. We will welcome you as a hero in ways you never imagined possible. And then do SNL w me. Sincerely, Alec."
Her spokeswoman actually responded, saying, "I’m starting to think Mr. Baldwin may have a crush on Mrs. Trump that is becoming borderline obsessive."
