"There’s a lot said about Donald and Melania Trump’s marriage, most of it insulting and cruel.
People who hate the president can’t believe anyone could love him.
“Inside the Trump marriage: Melanie’s burden,” “The Sad Truth,” “Dark Secrets” are typical headlines.
Yet those who attended the state dinner for Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison on Friday tell a very different story.
“It’s a real marriage, very affectionate,” said one Australian official who observed it up close and personal during the three-day state visit.
In fact, by all reports, the state dinner, only the second for the Trump White House, was an unmitigated triumph and a coming of age for an increasingly sure-footed first lady.
“She oversees every detail herself. She cares about the way things look, smell, taste and the way they feel.”
As it happened, the weather gods delivered a balmy Washington evening.
But despite Melania being tailor-made for fashion magazines, they turn up their noses.
Theirs may be one of those lucky marriages that thrive on adversity.
Too bad for the haters."
