First lady Melania Trump will host her first large-scale White House event Sunday, a gala for the nation’s governors
The event will take place at the same time as the Academy Awards – preventing the president from viewing any anti-Trump speeches that might occur live
Press Secretary Sean Spicer pointed out the scheduling conflict at the press briefing today when asked if the president planned to watch the Oscars
Melania Trump will be hosting her first big White House ball Sunday and it’s scheduled for the same time as Sunday’s Academy Awards ceremony.
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer pointed out this scheduling conflict when asked by a reporter today if the president planned to watch the Oscars – and respond to any criticism of his administration coming from the starlets on stage.
Spicer noted how the president and first lady will be hosting the Governors’ Ball that night, which is part of the National Governors Association’s winter meeting in Washington.
‘Mrs. Trump looks forward to putting on a phenomenal event,’ Spicer said. ‘And the first lady’s put a lot of time into this event that’s going to occur, welcoming our nation’s governors to the capital and I have a feeling that that’s where the president and the first lady are going to be focused on, on Sunday night.’
