DOES MELANIA MAKES MICHELLE OBAMA INSECURE? THE OBAMAS CANCEL PHOTO-OP WITH TRUMP AND MELANIA DURING FIRST WHITE HOUSE VISIT, FORCED TO RELEASE PICTURE OF MEETING…INSECURE MUCH?
Are the Obamas so insecure against the Trumps they broke tradition and cancel a photo-op with President-Elect Donald Trump and his wife Melania during their first visit to the White House as First Couple on Thursday. Not only they bar the press from taking video and pictures of the event, they also refused to release photos of the meeting between the two First Ladies until they were pressured by British site Daily Mail to publicly release it. Meantime, Laura Bush gave a warm welcome to the Obamas in 2008 with full media participation. Example of picture below.
The Wall Street Journal:
“The Obamas canceled a photo-op of the current and future first couples outside the south entrance of the White House. In his first visit to the White House after the 2008 election, Mr. Obama and first lady Michelle Obama posed for the cameras alongside President George W. Bush and first lady Laura Bush. The decision not to participate in this tradition illustrates how bitter the campaign was, particularly for Mrs. Obama who delivered some of the most emotional arguments against electing Mr. Trump.”
DAILY MAIL :
First Lady Michelle Obama met her successor this afternoon, greeting the president-elect’s wife Melania Trump at the White House when she arrived and hosting her for tea.Press were barred from covering the visit that coincided with their husbands’ 90-minute meeting in the Oval Office. The Trumps arrived at the White House via a private entrance on the south side of the building. They left the same way they came. A photo of the women chatting in the Yellow Oval Room was posted by the current administration hours later – and only after DailyMail.com put pressure on the White House to release it.
