Grass: one. Melania Trump: zero. Being First Lady comes with its slew of challenges… like navigating tricky terrain in designer clothes. It’s only natural that an embarrassing snafu will occur from time to time. Recently, while walking across the White House lawn, Melania narrowly avoided what could have been a much worse situation (thanks to husband Donald Trump). The former model was photographed tripping and quite literally almost falling out of her boots while walking to board a helicopter to New Hampshire.
The 47-year-old mom could be seen grabbing on to the president’s arm as her brown boots sunk into the grass. Melania had to know wearing high heels in the soft grass was a risky choice — she was a model after all. But, in the name of fashion, she hoped that she wouldn’t fall head first in front of photographers, onlookers, and well, the world.

Of course, trying not to trip in public is probably the least of her worries. Even Trump admitted that his wife’s role is not an easy one. While at a rally in Moon Township, PA on Saturday, March 10, the POTUS praised Melania‘s efforts with country’s opioid epidemic. “Great first lady. She’s great. She’s great,” he said, according to The Hill. “You think her life is so easy, folks? Not so easy. She is a great First Lady.”
Well, it looks like she can depend on her husband (at least physically). Trump was there to catch his wife before she fell into the grass and ruined her outfit. He even made a funny face showing his second-hand embarrassment for her. Hopefully, she learned her lesson and next time will wear more suitable shoes for walking through the dirt. We’d hate to have her less-than-flattering moment be immortalized in a photograph. Because honestly, do we really need another Melania meme?
