This Is What People Are Saying About Melania Trump’s Official Portrait
It’s here. The White House has released the official portrait of the First Lady, Melania Trump, and, of course, people (read: Twitter) have a lot to say about it. What else is new?
In the portrait, Trump is seen standing with her arms crossed and lips slightly parted. People couldn’t help but compare Trump’s and Michelle Obama’s official portraits. (Obama wore a sleeveless black dress, whereas Trump wore a long-sleeved jacket, and you can see more of the White House interior in Obama’s picture.) On the other hand, there are those who think there is a striking resemblance to Nancy Reagan’s official portrait—from the close-crop shot to the tie-bow at the neck—which is a nice historical nod.
Bad air-brushing, wrong choice of suit colour, overbearing diamond ring—there was something for every critic in the Twitterverse. See below for proof:

I had to take some Benadryl for my allergies and now I feel as fuzzy as Melania Trump's official portrait.

While she hasn’t officially moved into the White House, it will be interesting to see if this portrait serves as a sign that Trump is ready to step into her First Lady shoes.
