Melania Trump charms Gu Gu, unfazed by the giant panda’s dangerous bad boy past

First lady Melania Trump appeared to enjoy accompanying President Donald Trump during his visit to China last week and even got to meet Gu Gu the giant panda at the Beijing Zoo.

“Wonderful to meet Gu Gu,” said the official Twitter account of the Office of First Lady Melania Trump.

And when she says “meet,” we’re talking up close and personal.

Exhibiting more daring than her predecessor, former first lady Michelle Obama, who didn’t get any closer to a panda than a ten-foot pole, as seen in the image below, Mrs. Trump actually touched the beast who has already mauled three people, according to the Daily Mail.

But no pole was needed as a brave first lady put the food directly in Gu Gu’s mouth, as seen below.

All under the watchful eye of a handler, who appeared more nervous than Mrs. Trump!

Oh, there was also a steel fence in place, adding a little more assurance that all parties involved walked away intact.

As for Gu Gu, he appears to be as mesmerized by the first lady’s beauty as Americans are.

But then, how can you blame him?

Much like her husband, Mrs. Trump shared her experienced in China on social media, to include her visit to the Great Wall of China.

“Unforgettable memories,” she tweeted.

But then, the entire Asian trip with President Trump has been memorable, with Mrs. Trump’s quiet dignity amid the rigid formalities of international diplomacy proved to be a perfect compliment to the president’s business-like rapport.
