The critics have been relentless in their attacks against Melania Trump. Like we have never seen before for a First Lady.
It is a shame because in reality, she is an innocent victim in the DC power games. But what she did before she took a few days off for the 4th of July should set her critics straight.
From Daily Mail:
Melania Trump surprised injured service members and their families at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, on Tuesday morning ahead of the Fourth of July.
The 48-year-old first lady looked patriotic in a navy blouse tucked into a pair of navy culotte pants for her visit to the Washington-area hospital, which the White House did not publicly announce until after she arrived.
Stephanie Grisham, the first lady’s spokeswoman, tweeted in the morning that Melania was visiting with ‘combat injured service members and their families.’
After the unannounced visit, Melana took to Twitter to share photos of herself meeting with patients at the medical center.
‘I had a wonderful visit to @WRBethesda today,’ she wrote. ‘Thank you to the many dedicated service members & medical staff who take such good care of our men & women in uniform.’
Melania posed for a photo with U.S. Army Captain Luis Avila, who was left almost completely paralyzed after an improvised explosive device (IED) detonated nearby him during a combat tour in 2011.
While the blast killed three of his fellow soldiers, Luis suffered an amputation of his left leg, two strokes, two heart attacks, and a severe lack of oxygen that caused anoxic brain damage.
