Thank goodness Melania Trump was there!
President Donald Trump almost made a faux pas during the annual White House Easter Egg Roll on Monday, April 17 — but his wife came to the rescue. In a hilarious clip from the event, the first lady nudges her husband after he seems to forget to place his hand over his heart during the National Anthem.

Melania looked gorgeous in a soft pink tea-length dress that she designed herself with Hervé Pierre — the same designer who made her gown for the inaugural ball, the New York Times reported. She stood in between her husband and their son — 11-year-old Barron Trump — on the balcony at the White House to address about 21,000 guests who attended the event on the South Lawn.
It was her first time hosting the event — which has been a tradition at the White House for the past 139 years. She helped plan this year’s Egg Roll, which she called a “wonderful tradition,” ABC News reported.

The 46-year-old even took the time to sit down with a group of children to read Kathie Lee Gifford’s 2010 book, Party Animals — which is about embracing the similarities and differences of others. It seems like she’s trying to be a good sport about her duties as the first lady — a job that sources said she never signed up for.
“This life wasn’t her dream. It was Donald’s. Truthfully, it’s a lot to cope with,” an insider revealed to Us Weekly. “Melania is unhappy with how her life ended up. She is miserable.”
Her husband’s presidency is also taking a toll on their marriage. Another source revealed that the couple has been sleeping apart ever since he took on his new role earlier this year.
“They have separate bedrooms,” the insider told Us Weekly. “They never spend the night together — ever.”

"I think you can't be with the person if it's not love, if they don't satisfy you," Melania told the New York Times in 1999. "You can't hug a beautiful apartment, you can't hug an airplane, you can't talk to them."
