All eyes were on Melania Trump’s Alexander McQueen dress at a Fourth of July event — because it looked like someone had drawn on it with a sharpie.
Melania Trump joined her husband at an early Fourth of July event at Mount Rushmore — but the focus was on her designer dress. The 50-year-old First Lady accompanied President Donald Trump to the July 3 celebration, and Twitter users were quick to comment on her eye-catching dress by Alexander McQueen. Although it retails for a hefty $2485, many declared the knee-length frock looked as though Donald had scribbled on it with a sharpie!
As Trump took the stage to address the 7500-strong crowd in South Dakota, social media users joked about the black and white design on Melania’s dress. “Donald Trump got bored and drew all over Melania’s white dress with a sharpie on Air Force One,” one user wrote, while another joked, “Will somebody please take that sharpie away from him! Now he’s drawing on Melania’s dress, ffs.”
Some even compared the abstract doodle design to the infamous ‘Sharpiegate’, when the POTUS seemingly used a large sharpie back in Sept. 2019 to alter a Hurricane Dorian map. “Apparently Trump tried to draw a hurricane path on Melania’s dress,” a user wrote, white another Twitter user commented, “He gone and doodled with the sharpie all over her dress now. I thought they took away his sharpie after the hurricane incident?”
Earlier in the week, we reported that a new book was claiming Melania had renegotiated her prenup before arriving at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. News stories back in 2017 focused on Melania’s decision to continue living at the Trump Tower with son Barron Trump, now 14, while he completed his school semester, costing taxpayers an exorbitant amount of money. While it was true that Melania wanted Barron to finish school, “taking care of Barron” also meant protecting them financially, according to Washington Post reporter Mary Jordan. In Jordan’s new book, The Art of Her Deal: The Untold Story of Melania Trump, she claims that Melania “needed time to cool off” after finding out about her husband’s alleged affair with Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal and other sexual indiscretions.
