Washington - Scenes from the Capitol on a night of pomp, pageantry and politics for the State of the Union address:

With all eyes on her, a poised Melania Trump took her seat in the gallery above the packed House moments before her husband delivered his State of the Union speech.

Mrs. Trump, sheathed in an all-white Dior pantsuit, had traveled to the Capitol separately from President Donald Trump after holding White House and Capitol receptions for her guests. A White House aide said the couple was expected to return together to the White House after the speech.

First ladies typically get everyone’s attention when they enter the chamber for their husbands’ addresses. But Mrs. Trump had not been seen in public with her husband since The Wall Street Journal reported earlier this month that in 2016, Trump’s lawyer paid a woman $130,000 to keep quiet about an affair she said she had with the future president. The woman on Tuesday issued a statement denying the affair happened.

After the report, the couple’s anniversary passed without public comment. Mrs. Trump abruptly canceled plans to accompany her husband to Davos, Switzerland.

Last year, President and Mrs. Trump traveled to the speech together.

Mrs. Trump did not react as Trump began his speech with an acknowledgement of “the first lady.”

Sorry, Archy. The rumors of Barron's autism have been debunked. He's a normal eleven year old.

This is beyond fake news, trying to find criticism of Trump and his family.
If Trump would discover a cure for cancer they would blame him for trying to put the oncologists out of business.

Who has debunked that? Only you. He is far from normal

I have an autsitic child as a neighbor and in my family. It doesn't take much to see it in their face. Seeing is believing. Furthermore, while he attends an elite private school, St. Andrew's Episcopal School, its more catered toward special needs and has its own unique individualized approach. Its not where other presidents sent their children and its a bit out, not in DC proper. You do the math. They obviously want to keep it somewhat private.

The only debunking they did was that they claimed his weird behavior in public is no clear proof of austism. They never debunked that he was not autistic. And there are a million other diagnosis even among the autsim spectrum that are technically not autism. I never said he was autistic . i said he was special needs
Not debunked at all only in your rumorious fake news mind.

He is. That’s a phony liberal impersonating Educated Archy. Just ignore the idiot. The libtard is still smarting at feeling bullied here and went crying to VIN to report the normal people here.

Nope I have been impersonated many times but not this time.I attest it's me.

My point in case you guys missed it, is that the media is assuming Melania is in a fight with trump thereby snubbing him out. In reality, she is just a mom with a special needs child and is busy ensuring that the child is adjusting under the new crazy norm. That's a difficult and overwhelming task. There is no shame in being special needs or a special needs mom. In fact a mom who sticks it out should be commended.

If you refuse to believe he is special needs which I think is pretty obvious at least concede that Barron is clealry overwhelmed and needs his mothers attention. Melania is basically a single mom and busy trying to protect and love Barron.

The media has a chutzpa to make up stories and wreck a hard working and I believe special needs mom
