    I know what I said, but why does it matter that Melania isn't running for president?

    Both Bill and Hillary ran for US president and both are natural born US citizens.

    Did you fail to understand the question?

    So at what price does it become too expensive? And what does Trump's attacks on Baltimore have to do with her shoes and coat?

    I assum you mean portrays not betrays? How does she portray "insensitivity?"

    Yes, but I'm not an evangelical Christian and neither was Bill Clinton. Bill Clinton did nothing more than I would have if approached by an attractive girl over the age of 18. His only mistake IMO was in not saying, "yes, I had sex with that woman. I normally would never tell but she told someone else first, so yes, we had sex, she and I enjoyed it, and that's all you're going to know.

    I am reminded of one or the other leader of Indonesia or Java or one of those islands who was caught in a Soviet "honey trap' and then shown pictures of himself having sex with 3 attractive Slavic spies. He requested that they make several copies he could distribute widely as this proof of his extensive virility would go a long way to ensuring his reelection

    Nothing really, she should have expected to be booed just because of her husband's unnecessary and mean-spirited attacks on Cummings, a very sick man as events turned out.

    How do you think wearing an outfit that costs nearly a hundred times what most of her audience makes in a 8 hour day when they even have work is NOT insensitive? (Please stop being purposely obtuse. It's very annoying and I think it qualifies as Itrolling)

    Cummings being sick is irrelevant. Do you think that people should be immune from criticism just because they are sick?

    Again I ask you, at what price does it become too expensive? You obviously have a line, so what the hell is it?

    I don't think you should take advantage of sick people who might not be in a position to defend themselves no, but being a conservative it seems that you believe that any advantage you can find over anyone at any time is perfectly fine. In 2017 and despite obvious deep policy disagreements Cummings was actually one of the very few liberal pols who tried to welcome Trump and even found reason to praise his policy on drug prices. Cummings might reasonably have expected Trump not to do his routine rabid dog reply to even the slightest disagreement when he (Cummings) wasn't feeling well, (and about to die) . Greater fool he, I guess you'll say.

    In this case about $250-500 for the entire outfit would seem reasonable. I base this on the policy of John Molloy in Dress for Success who says you should generally wear conservative clothing that seems about as good, or maybe a little better but not a whole lot, than what your boss is wearing, or what your customers generally have on if you're in sales, adjusted, of course, for the situation and who you/they are.

    Now Melania is a world famous model, so she can be expected to wear top-end stuff, so let's put it up to $1000, especially if a coat is involved, BUT she is also an expert in the use of clothing to make an impression, so she should have known that a $7200 outfit would put her audience rather off

    You don't wear an Armani suit if you're addressing a hostile group of strikers, do you? I mean, maybe you do, I dunno, but most people wouldn't and they would regard it as rather obviously insensitive to do so.

    Didn't he defend himself?

    And do you expect everyone to have the same line as you?

    "Strikers?"

    I think he ignored him, as many do with Trump

    Molloy is a known arbiter in what is acceptable, functional and effective, sartorially, Melania's expertise is in just these matters.

    Well known word, Google is your friend.

    We are all huge fans of Melania.

    Anyway, I'm wondering why are you wasting your time here? You should be selling epithets against Trump and Republicans to witless liberals, including Congress.

    why are you a huge fan of melania? I despise Trump but I will defend Melania when people attack her. But she does not deserve a fan club. Here is a woman who has the most powerful platform and does nothing to use it. I find that disappointING . Every president’s wife had a cause and they did something about it. Be best? What the hell does that even mean ? My students would have to correct that.
    how about “be goodest?LOL

    I know you think she's the best looking clothes horse to ever grace the white house. I saw you staring several times.

    I think she's great too!

    One problem is her association with a fellow that the liberal media abhors. She does have her charities, of course. But so what would you have her do? What would be bestest for her, in your view? I don't know, maybe she doesn't get out that much? Can you suggest a charity or two for her?

    Well for a starter she can talk to her husband about cyber bullying . Remember her cause was cyber bullying? She could go to schools and talk about it. There are plenty of schools that would welcome her and her cause would get publicity . Ms Obama and Ms Bush and ms. Carter etc all did something. Cyber bullying is a worthwhile cause but she does nothing

    Nope. There is a fast difference between being nude is all that you need to do for the pay and to some action movie where nudity plays a very tiny part of the roll you play and are being payed for.
    is exactly that, and not a tramp like melania.
