Videos are still trickling in and one in particular is making a lot of people laugh…for the sheer ridiculousness of it.
On Monday the Trumps finished their visit to Raj Ghat, the memorial for Mahatma Gandhi, with a tree planting ceremony.
(Just remember that Gandhi was knows for his humility.)
They each picked up a shovel and tossed a spadeful of soil into an open hole, where a small sapling was placed.
They also watched a wreath-laying ceremony in honor of Gandhi, before signing a guest book and receiving a bronze bust of Gandhi. They walked around the monument, observed a moment of silence, and tossed flower petals onto the monument.

But it was the tree planting that caught most eyes.

And this isn’t a new thing for Melania. Remember when she attended a tree planting ceremony at the White House wearing a pair of pink, pointy-toe high heels? During the event, she got down and dirty with a shovel, while wearing a pink top and a $4,000 Valentino floral pleated skirt.
Or how about the time she wore sky-high heels to visit a hurricane?

Twitter had a field day:
There they go killing a perfectly good tree. Like the one at the white house. Dead after planting.

The words that come to mind…lumbering oaf. And WHY is she wearing five inch heels to lift a shovel of dirt? She’s lucky the weight didn’t pull her off balance, although it would’ve made good comedy.
…and of course Melanie showed up in her 5inch heel construction boots with steel toes & a steel shank right?#safetyfirst

Neither of them has ever used a shovel.
I’m shocked her heels didn’t get stuck in the fake grass. Now that would have been funny!

She probably got a cramp keeping those hooker heels from sinking into the earth.
