The First Lady and daughter Ivanka were photographed with the President in an audience with the Pope. Melina is wearing the traditional lace mantilla, and Ivanka a slightly more modern net veil. In a similar visit to the King of Saudi Arabia, neither wore traditional garb or even a headscarf. What are your thoughts on those choices?

You make a good point. Doesn't mean the practice doesn't alway irritate the Saudis. Having lived there I still say the Trump ladies could have dressed more conservatively. It is a huge faut pas to show your curves.
I didn't see any curves. I saw Melania wear a white pantsuit that did not show curves. I also saw her wear black dress pants with a gold belt. Again, no curves. Maybe I missed something. I didn't watch every single bit of coverage.
Savydating: It's hard for Americans to understand the Saudi culture.
Melania was a model, and models are not known to be curvy (except for Christy Brinkley). I haven't seen real curves on Melania regardless of what she wore. She is tall and has a very straight model's body. She no longer has that "starved model" look.
I'm laughing so hard I can hardly type....But on another note, have you noticed that Mike (Old Poolman) has disappeared from HP ? I tried searching but his profile was deleted
Did he give up or get booted?
He never posted much, so I'm not sure.
My understanding is that he threw in the towel because he was fed up. Makes me sad. Brad O'Cal knows more.
Paula, 103 comments to herself?? I'd like to say that tops all, but I know better.
Many hubbers have gotten fed up. There are currently 38,000 participants. Six years ago there were 200,000. People could write about whatever they wanted however they wanted. You could share hubs you liked or wanted to recycle. Hubbers were help
I think this new format of breaking HP apart is hurting the membership too - multiple logging in, different screen views, etc. - makes the site look like something a beginner built instead of a professional writing site
I agree with you, Ralph. I'm not getting notifications for nearly as many interesting hubs anymore. Too much poetry and then only a couple of prose writers each day. It's gotten boring.
old poolman couldnt explain why hes been maligning hillary clinton for taking saudi money for her foundation,but is ok with ivanka doing the same. also,that hes got a comfortable retirement,but trump and co are coming after all of us.you all shameful
I did notice on pop's recent hub throughout the comments thread there was chatter of Mike having "thrown in the towel." Not sure WHY. Too bad, so sad, I like Mike & will miss him!
Paula & Ralph, ask Brad about Old Poolman. I think it was something about questions by conservatives being deleted by HP, even though similar questions by Liberals were given a free pass. Frankly, I've had this happen to me a few times. It gets o
No, Mike certainly was not banned. I think like so many others, he got "fed up" w/ all the BS. He said he was going to
throw in the towel." I guess he did. :( Soon, HP with be a Ghost Town! See the #'s KC showed us! It's a grand exodus.
Kathleen, how do you get those numbers?
can you imagine what the christians would say if king did that? theyd want his head.
on a platter
I get the participation numbers from HubPages' home page. They don't show past numbers, so the 200,000 number is from my memory. But I remember that figure because it played a significant part in me signing up and was posted often in promotions.
