Anyone else noice this?

Flag went past, Trump and Pence saluted, Karen Pence put her hand over her heart, but Melania just stood there with her hands at her side. Odd.

2. She has just seemed kind of out-of-it

Sort of confused by the whole thing.

3. I do not think she wants to be there

She perhaps truly knows Don the John is a fraud

12. That's the impression that I get about Melania

She wants nothing to do with all this. She's probably zoning out.

Just like Laura seemed to.

7. I was thinking about how she really has him by the balls

I doubt she sleeps with him at all. She is one TV interview away from destroying him so she probably does pretty much what she wants now.

6. Odd ? Maybe, maybe not.



I think each of us have a personal reaction based on how we were brought up. For me, I still take my hat off. I know guys that don't.

I don't think she has the "reflex" to react. I don't think she has the experience of patriotism from living in a house/home with him. I don't think she has gotten any help/training/support from the campaign. They treat her like he does - as an afterthought. To steal from Michael Stipe " A simple prop, to occupy my time" and today his story is "Another prop, will occupy my time"...

So I don't find her reaction at all odd. She's a fish out of water who is trapped. And in a weird way, I feel sorry for her. Think of the emotional abuse he heaps on everyone. Imagine if she tried to escape. No - unfortunately, she's a poster child for the trapped woman.

My personal commitment is that one place I want to keep my civility is vis-a-vis Her and the little kid. Neither one of them deserve this chit (or him).

8. I think you're right.

I think she's counting the days until she can leave him, and take Barron with her.

10. Why did T & P salute?

``(C) all other persons present should face the flag
and stand at attention with their right hand over the
heart, and men not in uniform, if applicable, should
remove their headdress with their right hand and hold it
at the left shoulder, the hand being over the heart;

11. I would have, as well.

I won't disrepect the feelings of Americans who worship the flag (by burning it or being actively disruptive when flag-based ceremonies are going on).

But I do avoid arriving in a timely manner or I temporarily leave stadiums when I know the National Anthem will be sung. I typically bow my head and keep my hands at my side, or clasped together in front of me when I am someplace that decides it needs to recite the pledge.

I don't personally believe loyalty loaths (formal or informal) are an appropriate measure of one's character.
