Melania Trump showed up to the State of the Union a) separately from her husband, and b) wearing a white Dior pantsuit, reminiscent of the one Hillary Clinton wore when she accepted the democratic presidential nomination.
There were many sartorial statements during Trump's address (some female politicians wore black in solidarity with the #MeToo movement and many African American politicians were seen wearing Kente cloth scarves in protest of Trump), and Twitter is convinced Melania was making a statement of her own by dressing like Clinton.
Imma be honest. I subscribe to the idea that Melania trolls Trump w/her clothes and posts. Bet you 10 to 1 that Hillary-esque white suit was purposeful. -sJanuary 31, 2018

There’s a piece of me that hopes Melania wore a white pantsuit to make him think of Hillary the whole time.January 31, 2018

This all sounds great, but chances are Melania was just wearing a pantsuit. Or she was trolling her husband and is a problematic living legend, either way.
