‘Miserable’ Melania in FUNERAL dress on Pope visit as hubby hand-holding drama boils over

MELANIA Trump stepped out in a funeral black outfit for a third public appearance – after two days of publicly refusing to hold the President’s hand.

The First Lady sent Twitter into meltdown after stepping out in all-black attire while wearing a lace veil to meet the Pope.

Donald Trump, Melania and Trump’s daughter Ivanka travelled to the Vatican on Wednesday (May 24) in one of the President’s most high-profile talks to date.

Both Melania and Ivanka wore veils, traditionally worn by women as a sign of respect when meeting the Pope.

Many picked up on the choice as just days earlier, neither woman wore a headscarf in Saudi Arabia, despite the local custom of Muslim women wearing hijabs in public.

But that was not the only backlash Melania faced.

Fans on Twitter were shocked by her glum black outfit, with some suggesting she looked like she was going to a funeral.

 “Melania looks like she’s already wearing her outfit for Trump’s funeral and plotting the murder in her head,” one cheeky user tweeted.
Another joked: “My guess is Melania is cheering herself up by thinking of it as funeral prep.”

While a third added: “Looks like Trump’s funeral. Melania has been killing him with a love drought, hand swats and curves lately.”

The glamorous 47-year-old went viral for swatting away her husband’s attempt at hand-holding twice in two days.
