What Melania Does To Non-Verbal Military Child In A Wheelchair Has Establishment Media Reeling



You probably missed it in the deluge of anti-Trump news this week, but first lady Melania Trump is making some waves on social media for the way that she approached a non-verbal military child in a wheelchair at a Toys for Tots toy drive.

According to The Daily Caller, the event happened Tuesday during the first lady’s visit to Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling in Washington, D.C., as part of a tour of two military installations and an aircraft carrier.

After Melania gave some remarks in a hangar, addressing military children and their parents, she helped roughly 100 kids sort toys for needy children into boxes.

“The scene was chaotic, with little children grabbing the toys and running to the other side of the hangar to put them in boxes. The children were yelling and running around in wild excitement. In the midst of the chaos, Melania could be seen regularly stopping and kneeling down to help a confused child — or to answer any question they had,” The Daily Caller reported.

In the midst of the holiday fray, Melania took a little bit of time out to help a special needs child by the name of Braydon.

A video shows what happened next:

In the video, Melania can be seen approaching Braydon and then kneeling down to talk with him.

Braydon is seen making hand motions, presumably to communicate with her.

The video shows the first lady talking with him for about a minute and a half before moving on.

In a statement to The Daily Caller, Braydon’s mom said that the 12-year-old was thrilled to meet the first lady.

“He is so happy to meet Melania and how he says he is hungry from the excitement,” she said, adding that it was an “honor.”

The first lady will also be donating something other than her time for children in need.

“The First Lady will be gifting 100 books to the Toys for Tots Literacy Program. Since starting in 2008, the program has distributed over 39 million books to less fortunate children, helping to reduce the illiteracy rate among children,” the Office of the First Lady said, according to The Daily Caller.

“Mrs. Trump will also be giving ‘Be Best’ totes filled with a coloring book and White House candies to all the children that will be helping out at the drive.”

It wasn’t the only reason the first lady was making news last week, either.

On her way to the USS George H.W. Bush aircraft carrier, the first lady tweeted a picture of herself wearing the official cap of the ship — a tribute to the recently deceased 41st president, the namesake of the vessel.

Of course, you could have blinked and missed the coverage of this in the establishment media. What a surprise.

    It would be hard for the liberals to criticize Melania here. She is a compassionate and classy woman.

    What a wonderful lady! She is so kind and so gracious! The media is missing out ! She is the news! Proud we got a First Lady who acts like a First Lady! She makes Michelle look really really bad and she isn’t trying to do that! Love our First Lady!

  • Sandy Miller says:

    Melania’s love for children is well known.She is truly a class act.

  • RP says:

    You never saw Moooooochelle give two hoots for the military. The military didn’t think much about her husband either. That was demonstrated more than once, when Obozo would come out and address the troops. They knew he cared nothing about them and would rather not have to deal with them.

  • Dede DeForest says:

    America is so fortunate to have such a caring, loving, classy First Lady. She cares so deeply about the children. God bless her in her efforts to help make America great again. It is an honor to have such grace and elegance, along with her kindness in the WH since this has not been the case in several years.

  • Ronald Gunn says:

    The First Lady is truly FIRST CLASS and she adds CLASS to the White House. I’m proud to call her the FIRST LADY of the United States.
