President Trump and First Lady Melania descended Air Force One in Saudi Arabia’s capital city of Riyadh on Saturday morning, and as usual, the mainstream media is falling all over themselves to report the best criticisms they can come up with.
Funny enough, the widespread obsession with critiquing the President has the media missing the real story on this one.
Women are expected to cover their heads as part of the hijab requirement of the Saudi Arabian government, but Melania forewent the covering over the weekend, as have many female world leaders in the past.
According to the Quran and Hadiths, Muslim men strictly forbidden to shake hands with non-Musim women. The King must be a special Muslim? pic.twitter.com/OKNI2wF85v

But once again, because the leftist media is hung up on the President’s tweets from years before his presidency, they’re missing the real story—the Saudi Arabian King shook Melania’s hand.
The Quran forbids Muslim men from shaking hands with women.
And Muslims are kinda pissed about it.”
I’m sure liberals will find a reason to be upset about that too, but for not at least we can be happy that our kind and gracious first lady went to a place where women actually do have things holding them back, and she went as a free American and wasn’t ignored. THIS is a leap forward for the Saudi women.
I can’t even imagine how much hope just this one gesture gave the women being oppressed in the middle east. Not only did she come, looking like a free American, she received a gesture of respect from the country’s leader. I don’t know how long the progress will last for, but it’s a crack, and enough to let a little light of hope through.
If you’re not proud of Melania for representing America like that, your American pride meter is broken. You might wanna get that checked out.
