There have been very educated first ladies before that have done it. I don't think Jill Biden will have a problem with it. Esp since she's already been a VPs wife for 8 yrs, and know what's expected of her. I think Kamala Harris's Dh (sorry can't remember his name) will totally embrace being the very 1st 2nd gentleman. AND if she goes on to maybe be President someday I can totally see him embracing that part of it all.
Adding to this thought based on my previous post on this thread. This is absolutely where innovation within the tradition could occur. Harris's DH performs the duties, or perhaps they do so in unity. Who knows, but the White House is the house of the people and to me the holiday decorating should continue.
It is a tradition, but don’t be fooled her actual duties are not overwhelming.
She has a team of designers to help her. Her role, along with the designers to come up with a general theme and overall feel of the of the look. They brainstorm ideas, they draw up the sketches. She approves or make changes as she desires. The plans are approved and they get to work making it happen. She is not at Hobby Lobby shopping for ribbons and snowflake ornaments. With the budget and talent she has to draw from, its hardly going to cause her to break a sweat.
Melania’s whining about how much work she does is equal to Donald’s complaints about hard he works everyday.
In fairness, the only "work" Melania ever signed up for was the work of allowing that disgusting toad to impregnate her so she could ensure her pay day.
So I can see how directing a hired staff to decorate for zeee Fucking Christmas is making her feel a little put out.
I hate them both. She is a vile, disgusting snake.
This is worth repeating. Soooo true. I can't wait until we don't have to talk or hear about these disgusting people any more.
