If former first lady Michelle Obama had visited a home for abused kids the press would have plastered it all over the world, but when First Lady Melania Trump does it, it barely makes the local news.
FLOTUS found out on Friday when she went to HomeSafe in Lake Worth, Fla. which houses victims of domestic violence and abuse. The visit appears to have only been widely reported by the Palm Beach Post and Footwear News.
“This is a day that the girls will never forget,” HomeSafe CEO Matthew Ladika told the Post.
The first lady arrived at the facility around 10:15 a.m. and stayed for around 45 minutes talking with the girls aged 12 – 17.

“It was extra special and touching,” Ladika said. “She asked them what their interests are.”
The girls have been placed in the home by court order, the Post reported.
Trump brought stuffed bunnies and Easter baskets for other children at the home, according to the Post.
The facility cares for 40 boys and seven girls.
Once again, if this were Michelle Obama, the mainstream press would have photos splashed across every screen but in the Trump-era, they left it to a shoewear publication that mixes up so-called-news with footwear stories. Who knew?
Footwearnews.com was eager to slam Trump for the Rene Caovilla sandals she was wearing: Melania Trump Surprises Kids With Easter Baskets in $1,200 Sparkling Ladylike Sandals
The sandals were from the label’s Strass Karung collection, Footwear News reported.
They were made of snakeskin material with a crystal-beaded cutout, glittery outsole and an adjustable ankle-wrap strap.
They had a 3.5” covered block heel and cutouts around the open-toe band straps that accentuated the first lady’s red pedicure, according to Footwear News.
The shoes sell for $1,150 at Nordstrom, one of the companies that removed Ivanka Trump’s brand from its store, raising the ire of President Donald Trump.
The publication used the occasion to mock Mrs. Trump and the president, after her kind gesture.
“No doubt the children will weigh heavily on her mind on Easter as she enjoys a holiday meal and restful time amid the terra-cotta-roofed Mar-a-Lago, which boasts sweeping oceanfront views nearly 11 miles away,” the author wrote as if previous first families spent their holidays in squalor.
“Meanwhile, the commander-in-chief was enjoying a game of golf after arriving at Mar-a-Lago earlier in the day on his seventh ‘working weekend’ at the private luxury estate,” it said.
We wonder where Footwear News was when President Obama golfed after American journalist James Foley was beheaded.
But the major news networks have yet to report on the visit and social media was not happy about it.

The first lady is a classy lady. The media won’t show you this and you already know why. The media just plain sucks. https://t.co/ZdES2OXmQw

Of course it went unreported, FLOTUS showing compassion and kindness to abused girls doesnt fit MSM narrative. https://t.co/th1LyAiFxz
