1. Note that the jackass also appears to have walked into the White House first...

ahead of (still) President Obama.

Back in 2009, BO waited for MO (of course) before walking up the steps to be greeted by the Bushes. Then GWB escorted MO into the building first, followed by BO and Laura Bush.

Michelle brought a gift for Laura (most likely a picture frame, based on the box). It was the first time that anyone reporting on the meet could recall the incoming FLOTUS doing such a thing. She has grace in every molecule of her being.

3. I keep reading too, that this was the first time an incoming FLOTUS brought a gift, but I remember

Michelle bringing a gift back in 2009.

I just found the photo:



Edit: typo

2. When Trump looks at that picture, I wonder if he can see what's wrong.

I'm betting that someone had to explain it to him.

9. Wouldn't matter...

manners for that situation are learned at a very young age, or not in his case. Hell I had times when I was pissed at my ex-wife, but I wouldn't treat her like that in public.

Melania is just another one of the servants to him.

Funny how someone so obsessed with his image misses on such a basic display of his true character. Although, I guess when your chosen persona is asshole bully, this fits right in.

7. You either have the character to be a gentleman, or you don't.

In addition to his many other flaws, the new "president" is an unschooled lout and boor. I hope these photos follow him around for the rest of his miserable life, because they speak volumes about him---none of it good.

11. She and even his daughter are seen only as arm candy

We must keep in mind that the man is seriously suffering from a narcissistic disorder of great magnitude. All along the spin has been that he will "pivot" into a normal human being. Not gonna happen.
The man all of his handlers hoped he would "pivot" out of is what they now have to deal with.
