On Thursday, April 26th, First Lady Melania Trump celebrated her 48th birthday! On the morning of her special day, President Trump appeared on Fox & Friends for a phone interview to discuss jobs, tax cuts, Kanye West, North Korea, James Comey, and other trending topics.
During the phone interview, Trump also wished his beloved wife a “happy birthday” and said it was a “very, very special day.” Fox hosts were curious as to what Trump got her as a gift, but the President had an unexpected response.
“Have you decided on or do you want to tell us what you got her?” one host asked.
“Well, I better not get into that because I may get in trouble; maybe I didn’t get her so much!” the President joked.
“I got her a beautiful card — You know, I’m very busy to be running around looking for presents, OK?” he said with a chuckle. “But I got her a beautiful card and some beautiful flowers.”
Trump also praised his wife’s efforts with the recent State Dinner, “And she did a fantastic job with France! I’ll tell you what — the people of France were spellbound by what happened with the great president who just left, Emmanuel. He is a wonderful guy.”
Despite his heartfelt gesture, the mainstream media attacked President Trump. Headlines from the New York Post and CNN only insisted that he was too busy to get her a birthday present, but conveniently left out his humorous remarks and the fact that he did get his wife a card and flowers. The NY Post also suggested that Trump was “stumbling over his words.”
