    Inappropriate? No.
    But where's the pun, even dumb stones know that dress code was black+veil.

    The joke is dumb. I certainly find that this FLOTUS dresses more appropriately than the last FLOTUS.

    Are the same people who get all worked up about "political correctness" now complaining about a couple of internet jokes?

    Irony knows no bounds.

    I never knew about this dress code until now. But granted there was a dress code, I'm thinking there surely are ways to dress in black+veil without looking like you are at a funeral.

    And I thought only Muslim women wore hijab or veil, and oppress the women.

    This is more or less how catholic women usually dressed to go to church one hundred years ago.

    You could still find some who follow such tradition in some manner somewhere.

    Look: This is just more Reichwing b/s.

    Some anonymous person makes an (arguably) funny remark about Melania Trump looking like she was wearing mourning clothes, and suddenly it's "inappropriate"?

    Maybe it is. But so what? Most humor is inappropriate on a certain level. That's the point.

    We live in a free country, with free speech. And people are allowed to make jokes. And, in the great pantheon of humor, the scenario of a woman secretly fantasizing about the demise of her much older, much richer, and much more unpleasant husband - probably counts as a classic oldie.

    I'm still confused about this display of rigid political correctness.

    Yes, the same people that rant about Wonder Woman's armpits and want a third bathroom. Internet Warriors work overtime.

    The joke was as funny as you want it to be. She has been seen slapping his hand away on several occasions on this trip and as far as the pictures at the Vatican, she looked perfectly horrible. The person who picked that mantilla certainly did her no favors, adding about 15 years to her apparant age, and hi-lighting the harshness of her face.

    The criticism is unwarranted. The joke was funny.

    No, it never occurred to me to search Google Images for pictures of First Ladies meeting Popes until now. The topic just never came up on my radar.

    If they hadn't dressed that way and "normal" instead, they'd get criticism for that as well. You can't win these days..

    Inappropriate? I dunno.

    I do find it kind of sad. The joke only has context because of the appearance that Melania wants no part of the Donald. If find myself kind of feeling bad for her sometimes.

    I thought it was funny, but I take it as a joke, and to some that commented she looked like she went to a funeral, well all women wearing all black like that usually do.
    I live in the USA and no matter the president I WANT to see them succeed!! I guess I am funny that way..

    I would not have critiqued her for dressing normally. I did not care she avoided the head scarf in Saudi, and I could care less if she had not honored the Vatican dress code for women. Are women actually supposed to wear black (a mourning color) and a veil when in the Vatican?
