Melania Trump Runs Into Clintons At Funeral- Ignores Them

Since becoming First Lady, Melania Trump has not looked very happy. The former model knows how to smile in front of an audience or for a photo op, but for the most part when cameras do catch her off guard, she usually looks stone-faced.

Sometimes she's even frowning. She's shied away for the limelight, especially in the wake of the sex scandals that are currently threatening President Donald Trump's administration.

She’s even been spotted taking a different motorcade to different places instead of going with her husband and swatting his hand away when he tries to hold hands with her. She tries to downplay her behavior, but it has raised a lot of eyebrows.

Twitter noticed, however, when the Slovenian FLOTUS was caught smiling genuinely and warmly in a candid photo for the first time in months. Oddly, it was not an event at which there were many smiles: it was at former First Lady Barbara Bush's funeral.

Melania was seated next to her husband's predecessor, former President Barack Obama, and he must have been turning on the charm as usual.

President Trump didn't attend the funeral out of respect for the family, the White House reported. He was concerned that his presence would cause disruptions with the security requirements.

Melania went to represent the Trump family and the current administration, and she was seated next to Mr. Obama. Michelle Obama was also there, as well as Bill and Hillary Clinton.

“Today the world paid tribute to a woman of indisputable character and grace. It was my honor to travel to Houston to give my respects to Barbara Bush and the remarkable life she led as a mother, wife, and fearless First Lady. My sincerest thoughts and prayers continue to be with George H.W., and the entire Bush family,” read a statement from Mrs. Trump.

As Obama and Melania chatted, the FLOTUS seemed to drop her guard. Whatever Mr. Obama was saying brought a real smile to her face. A photo of the exchange has gotten dozens of comments on Twitter.

"What an image given the tweets statements, and speeches in the past 445 days. Wonder what President Obama just said to Mrs. Trump," wrote journalist Yashar Ali.

"Melania looks happier at a funeral than she has in ages. Wouldn’t you too if you went from being with Donald every day to sitting next to Barack?" tweeted another.

"Today we saw living proof that it is more fun and relaxing to be with Barack Obama at a funeral than it is to be with Donald Trump at a festive social event. Once we get DJT out of the White House, we can Make America Smile Again. (MASA)," said another person.

Some compared photos of Melania with President Trump to the photo of Melania smiling with Obama. The difference is like night and day.

"Melania Trump is happier at a funeral with Barack Obama than at an inaugural luncheon with Donald Trump," Tweeted a person.

Since Melania is such an introvert and attempts to stay away from the cameras, it’s hard to tell whether it’s her husband, the scandals or the being under a microscope that causes her to tense up without smiling most of the time. Still, it was nice to see her relax for a moment.
