Melania Trump did something special on Tuesday, but it barely got any press at all.
The First Lady made a secret trip to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center to visit some of our wounded warriors.
Under the Radar
The media has not exactly been kind to our new first lady.
That being the case, it is not uncommon for Melania to avoid the press, rather than give them a ring for a photo opportunity.
Rather than making a spectacle of her visit, the first lady very quietly went to Walter Reed to visit those that have put their life on the line for our freedom.
The entire visit would have gone unnoticed if not for a tweet from Stephanie Grisham, FLOTUS’ spokeswoman, after the first lady arrived at the hospital.
Amazingly, even after the visit was made public, the press barely touched it.
Sadly, there were still more stories floating around about her choice of attire boarding a plane to Texas than her visit to see the wounded.
Par for the Course
This is not the first time the first lady managed to dodge the gaggle of press during a visit.
During her most recent visits to immigrant detention facilities in Texas and Arizona, the media did not find out the official reason for her visit until after she had arrived.
As to her visit, Melania Trump was no doubt impacted by our wounded soldiers during her recent medical emergency.
After her visit, Melania also wanted to thank the staff of the facility.
She sent gratitude to the “many dedicated service members and medical staff who take such good care of our men and women in uniform.”
As usual, FLOTUS showed nothing but class.
