First lady Melania Trump participates in a town hall meeting on opioids at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia, on November 28.
In 2017, the Trumps' first Christmas in the White House, her spindly, white trees with lights casting spooky shadows were also the subject of "Shining" memes.

Mrs. Trump was speaking at a Liberty University "town hall" about the opioid addiction epidemic.
Bolling asked how the first lady would like to see the media change in their coverage of her "Be Best" initiative - responding, Trump said she would like the media to focus more on what she's doing in trying to spread awareness. "About a pound of fentanyl can cause 150,000 deaths".
