I heard something on the radio that made me a bit queasy. "I don't care. Do you?" will join the other first ladies . . .

. . . honoring and paying respects to Rosalynn Carter as she lies in repose in Atlanta.

I wonder if she will get her kidney retreaded.

I'm not sure what people expected. As I noted in another thread on the topic (linked in a reply below), "former first ladies" is a very small club, and we shouldn't use Trump or his family as a basis for our own behavior. Leaving her out of a spite or whatever would be pretty petty, and the Carters are the epitome of class.

because they have more class, thoughtfulness, and elegance than she can EVER presume to have. And all she’s got is “Wife Number Three”, or probably more like “Next to Be an Ex”.

She will feel very uncomfortable. She'll have to sit with Michelle, Hillary, and Laura. They'll be gracious but not very warm. She won't understand any of the speeches. She'll think it's a big bore but she'll have to go, I suppose.

Are the First Ladies going to sit together? Or will the Bidens sit together. If it's the former...awkward.

She probably resents having to be there. I bet she hated her years in the White House. Just guessing here, but she probably resented the obligations of a First Lady. It’s like being Queen for a Day, but after the first week or two, I bet she was straining to go back to her luxurious private life.

That is how she sees it. I am surprised she is bothering.
Not her style to extend herself for anyone else.

Probably call the paps to take pics so she can sell them.

Oh yah, it is botox and fillers time for sure.

Don't get me wrong, I despise her as much as anyone else.
But if it's ok with the Carters, it's ok with me.

(I just hope she doesn't wear anything tacky.)
(Or stare into the camera like she's in a photo shoot.)
(Or try to act like she really cares.)

That will make it all worthwhile. I hope Melania is very uncomfortable around all these gracious ladies.

now that the Traitor wants her there to show everyone that he was once in the WH.

But hopefully it will remind Americans how he tried to Overthrow our Government when he LOST!!

They’re also very forgiving and gracious. I doubt very much that Melania will do anything untoward. I wouldn’t be surprised if she gets some hugs from the others. Remember how kind the Obamas were to her on Inauguration Day when Piss Wig left her behind at the car?

I don’t really think it’s a problem or scandalous in any way.

Showing up in other than respectful black, she wore a LOOK AT ME gray suit.



A horrible person, she.

At least it made her look fat.
