Melania asked the pope to bless a gold rosary and he did and Ivanka wore

A bizarre stiff modern and coarse fishnet black bridal veil that came to her shoulders. And Melania wore loads of black lace like a sexy widow- for a meeting at 8:30 am with the pope.


Whoa!

1. And the pope gave him this huge bas relief mandala plaque of PEACE

 

And the pope gave him this stern teacher look and said clearly that t symbolized the peace he must bring, and the pope said peace two more times- he's on to Trump!

2. It is normal that women wear black veils to meet the pope. Also normal

that women cover their heads in Saudi Arabia that neither did. I wonder what the defining logic was on that? I guess it would be what Trump's base would like.

6. I know but these "veils" looked like a British or soap opera funeral - so OTT

 

And al the women wore black at 8:30 am in May? Weird.
Wait till you see pics.

7. There is no requirement for women to wear formal black or veils when visiting the pope AFAIK...

but the US delegations seem to always do so for this formal audience. (MO did as well). For example, here's the president of Switzerland, Doris Leuthard, with Francis:

5. Though the rules have relaxed somewhat,

the traditional attire for a woman in a private audience with the Pope would be a black dress or skirted suit, below knee length, covering the shoulders and with sleeves. Some sort of hat or mantilla was also expected. Limited jewelry. Light or no perfume/cologne.

Though if you were a Catholic queen, you could wear white instead -- privilège du blanc.

Wikipedia is my friend. Check out Audience (meeting).

I actually like what Melania was wearing. It was much better than the black jumpsuit with the WWE belt that she wore in Saudi Arabia. She rarely wears her hair up, so that was a nice change of pace.

They both looked like it was an Arron's Spelling production. Yikes.

10. God, Trump looks like a doofus walking to meet the Pope...

And can he EVER button his suit jacket??? He is so below any sense of class... I hope the Pope lets him have it on human rights, the environment and just everything good that the Pope stands for and the evil Trump stands for...

14. I have a theory on the unbuttoned jacket

His ego requires that he wear the same size jacket as he did in the 70s. That means he can't button the jacket. Now if I can figure out why he ties his ties so looooonnnnnggggg!

20. I wonder if the gold rosary was an antique artifact?

The Trumps obsession with gold is obscene, but has been a part of religious decor in bygone centuries and subjected to marauders (as in this case). Indeed the somber funeral garb the ladies are wearing is more fitting for a midnight vampire masquerade rather than a papal visit. Pope Francis had to endure this unpleasant appointment and Must have fervently implored the high heavens, saints and the Almighty God for emergency help. Pope Francis is much beloved throughout the world but this encounter certainly was abhorred and cringed by so many of the Pope's admirers. I am glad it is over.

22. Melania's Catholic?

Does she know a rosary - gold or not - is a religious symbol and prayer aid, not a piece of jewelry?
