"'Melania Trump knew every time she made a public appearance, 'a picture would be worth a thousand words.' In Melania’s case, the picture would have to do all the talking. This time is no different! @MELANIATRUMP. Melania made this service a photo op for herself, instead of handling her apprarance with dignity and humility, she used it as a cat walk," Winston Wolkoff claimed on X, formerly known as Twitter, on November 29. She continued, "Rosalynn Carter, is a national treasure who exemplified a life of humanitarian service with a spirit of generosity, dignity and compassion for all of God’s children. May she rest in peace."

"She seeks attention & recognition first and foremost," she declared. "Melania Trump wants to make sure you SEE HER but DON’T HEAR HER. Melania’s INTENT was no accident.

Without having to say word at her attendance at Rosalynn Carter’s memorial service, she made sure the world saw her and now she’ll likey try and grift & make a profit off an NFT."

Of course, some people agreed with Winston Wolkoff's observations.

"It was another variation of her 'I really don’t care' jacket parade," one person said, referring to her viral outfit. "Melania and Donald deserve each other. Eventually one will devour the other to save themselves."

A second person said, "That’s why Melania and Donald are a perfect match!" while a third person noted, "She and Trump are a perfect pair."
