Melania looks less than impressed during press conference

Melania Trump in 2016.

Despite Melania Trump’s husband, US President Donald Trump, talking about a cause which she has publicly thrown her support behind via social media, the first lady looks less than impressed as she sits dutifully beside him at a recent press conference addressing opioid addiction.

Even as Trump appears to laugh with reporters, Melania’s facial expression remains unmoved.

However, it does seem she may have found her cause but it also has many scratching their hands in confusion over what happened to her previous pledge to tackle cyberbullying. 

The first lady took to social media to publicly pledge against drug addiction following her husband’s press conference during which he also threatened North Korea.

And while it’s great to see Melania throw her well-heeled shoes behind such an important cause, it’s got many people wondering what happened to her pledge to tackle cyberbullying? 

It’s no secret her husband loves using Twitter to air his grievances about anything and everything – from slandering predecessor Barack Obama to weighing in on celebrity relationships.

So when Melania declared war on cyberbullying, more than a few eyebrows raised.

But it seems the first lady has forgotten about her previous cause as she hasn’t made comment on it since January. 

When asked why the first lady hadn’t done anything about her pledge to tackle cyberbullying, a White House spokesperson told The Daily Beast in June that Melania had been “too busy moving” into the White House.
