CNN has actually praised the current first lady, Melania Trump! Just in case it disappears under a torrent of leftist bile:
They credit Melania Trump with excellent fashion sense.
Without speaking a word, dressed in a white Michael Kors Collection asymmetrical blazer and skirt — and an eye-catching, custom-made Hervé Pierre hat — Melania Trump spoke volumes. This was her house, her dinner and her terms.
And credit her with equal diplomatic sense.
The first lady paid homage to France with a Chanel Haute Couture gown, hand-painted with silver and embroidered with crystals and sequins.
CNN acknowledges, without snark, that the first lady “spent weeks educating herself about the protocol and history of special White House occasions.”
Every last detail for Tuesday evening’s state dinner has been thoughtfully and carefully overseen by the first lady, who, unlike some of her predecessors, did not hire an event planner or other outside consultants for the event.
Diplomatic details extended to the choice of an Oregon wine, from imported French grapevines, and “a subtle nod to bipartisanship: [g]uests will dine on Bill Clinton and George W. Bush presidential china settings.”
CNN even acknowledges that Mrs. Trump has
…practiced a quiet diplomacy at contrast with her husband, not hesitating to assert her independence and saying more with her fashion choices, her selective public appearances and her attention to details than with her words.
It is a good thing President Trump ended the War on Coal–the Devil just ordered a train-load for the cold snap.
