The First Lady, Melania Trump visit Africa and the internet shook…not over what she did but over what she wore, hmph!!!
Several bloggers and news websites got different perspectives, and they sure shared it out loud.
- Melania Trump Went to Egypt Dressed Like a Smooth Criminal and Twitter Got Jokes
- Melania Trump Gave Us All a Valuable Lesson in How Not to Dress in Africa
- Melania Trump draws criticism for safari headgear on trip to Africa

The Root Magazine have a rather stern view of this visual appearance of the US First Lady in Africa, starting with…
First lady Melania Trump never wanted to be here. She thought that she was marrying an old man with one foot in the grave and another on a banana peel, who not only keeps eating family-sized buckets of KFC original recipe but seems to be getting stronger.
But this is the life she chose and she’s not helpless. She’s complicit. For some reason, the heiress to the Temple of Doom decided that in the middle of everything else going on, she was going to bounce to Africa and dress like an extra in an Indiana Jones movie.
“I wish people would focus on what I do, not what I wear,” First Lady Melania Trump lamented on the final day of her solo four-country trip to Africa, which took her last week to Ghana, Malawi, Kenya, and Egypt. She was reacting to criticism of the pith helmet she had worn earlier in Kenya.
Melania’s appearance wasn’t just clothing, but costume. And costume always attracts attention, invites interpretation, and sends its own message.
