The First Lady of the United States is getting trolled after wearing sunglasses in the dark again, but one publication is proposing a different rationale for the fashion choice.


After a surprise visit to the U.S troops in Iraq on Wednesday, Melania Trump and her husband, President Donald Trump, touched down at the White House on Thursday morning.

As the First Couple walked off Air Force One before sunrise, Twitter users could not help noticing Melania’s outfit.

The 48-year-old former model looked chic in a $2,480 double-breasted Prada coat, brown leather leggings, and pointy-toed flats. But it was her dark sunglasses that threw Twittersphere into a frenzy as netizens struggled to understand why the First Lady chose to wear the fashion accessory in the still-dark morning.


“Why is Melania wearing sunglasses? It’s pitch black outside,” noted one Twitter user.

Another tweet read:

“I try not to waste brain cells questioning why Melania is wearing something, but seriously, why does she need sunglasses when it is dark outside???”

A third person chimed in:


“Why is Melania stepping off AF1 wearing sunglasses when it is dark outside? All pettiness aside…she’s just strange.”

If there’s anything Melania gets a lot of flak for, it’s her fashion choices, and only last Thanksgiving, she was trolled for her pricey Dior jacket that many considered “hideous.”

Meanwhile, this will not be the first time the First lady is ruffling feathers for wearing sunglasses at seemingly inappropriate times.


It was an even bigger issue late last year when she wore it on her visit- alongside the president- to Hurricane Maria victims and rescue workers in Puerto Rico.

Several Twitter users berated her for wearing the shades and a baseball cap while interacting with grieving families.

“Just watching these setups for photos! Melania wearing her sunglasses like the people don’t deserve to look in her privileged eyes! No class” retorted one individual.


But while a lot of people seem to think Melania’s sunglasses habit is a major fashion faux pas, Breitbart, the far-right American publication, has another theory.

According to the website, wearing shades in the dark is common with American celebrities trying to avoid the paparazzi, and in the First Lady’s case:

“The sunglasses can serve as a subtle diss to the establishment media and their fake news.”
