During Donald Trump’s State of the Union address Tuesday night, the president made a bold claim about the pillars of American democracy. Notably, First Lady Melania Trump did not seem particularly moved by his sentiment.

“In America we know that faith and family, not government and bureaucracy are the the center of American life,” Trump said during his address. “The motto is: In god we trust.”

Melania Trump was “furious” with her husband after the Wall Street Journal reported his lawyer, Michael Cohen, paid porn star Stephanie Clifford (whose stage name is Stormy Daniels) $130,000 in 2016 to hide an affair with the president. The First Lady abruptly cancelled a planned trip to Davos and rode separately from the president to the State of the Union.

CNN White House reporter Kate Bennett even related Melania Trump’s white outfit to female Democratic Senators who protested Trump’s election last year.

“You know, she’s wearing a cream-colored suit there, which I find interesting. Remember last year the female Democratic Senators all wore white,” Bennett noted.

Joe Biden apologizes for ‘partisan lynching’ comments about Bill Clinton’s impeachment

Published

Former Vice President Joe Biden on Tuesday apologized for comments he made saying impeachment could be viewed as a "partisan lynching."

The comments from a 1998 interview were reported after Biden said it was "abhorrent" and "despicable" for President Donald Trump to refer to impeachment as a lynching.
