Appearing like a Nazi villain from the film Raiders Of The Lost Ark, First Lady Melania Trump struts for the cameras while on holiday in Egypt.
The vacuous and clueless former soft-porn model and mail-order bride currently attached to the American Nazi-In-Chief is winding up a solo, four-country African tour.
While on her travels the First Lady has made some regrettable wardrobe choices that has left some offended, and many scratching their heads in bemused wonder.
In Kenya, Trump offended locals by wearing a pith helmet, a symbol of colonial rule, Western imperialism, and centuries of oppression. Huffington Post notes:
It was bad enough that Melania Trump lamented the slaughter of African elephants even though her stepsons hunt them and her husband’s administration made it possible to import elephant trophies into America again.
But observers were further taken aback by the tone-deaf outfit the first lady wore in Kenya. She donned a startling symbol of colonial rule: a white pith helmet, once preferred by Europeans in African colonies and elsewhere.
Commenting on the First Lady’s faux pas in Kenya, Matthew Carotenuto, a historian at St. Lawrence University in New York, tweeted:
It’s like showing up to a meeting of African-American cotton farmers in a Confederate uniform.
In another tweet Carotenuto noted:

Melania completes the stereotype trifecta–elephants, orphans and even the pith helmet…..
Even more bizarre, while in Egypt the First Lady wore an outfit reminiscent of a Nazi villain from Raiders Of The Lost Ark. Twitter responded as one might expect:
It is funny that she’s cosplaying as a Nazi who literally gets melted by god at the end of a good movie pic.twitter.com/4PEPlNXCej— rob delaney (@robdelaney) October 6, 2018

This is not the first time that the First Lady’s wardrobe has left the impression that she is either clueless or deliberately malicious in her wardrobe choices. Previously Trump wore a jacket with the phrase “I really don’t care. Do U?” scrawled on the back when she went to visit a Texas concentration camp for kids.
Bottom line: While on her recent African tour First Lady Melania Trump cosplayed both a white colonialist and a Nazi villain.
