President Trump leaves Melania in the rain without an umbrella on their way to Florida as he's distracted by TV cameras
Reports state that the Republican president walked to the news cameras to comment on the couple's latest appearance on television leaving Melania behind, unprotected in rain
President Donald Trump was criticized on social media on Monday as he left his wife Melania Trump uncovered in the rain, according to reports. The duo was reportedly heading out for Georgia and Florida to assess the damage from Hurricane Michael, when Trump — who was holding an umbrella — appeared distracted by the news cameras present there and walked towards them, leaving the first lady uncovered in the rain.
Reports state that the Republican president walked to the news cameras to comment on the couple's latest appearance on television. He praised his wife for her latest ABC interview and also complimented himself on his appearance at CBS' '60 Minutes.'

Melania, who did not appear very interested in more camera time, stood in the background as Trump told the news crew: "She did a great job on television the other night, and I didn't do so bad either, but she did a great job on television."
The duo then walked towards the helicopter with Melania mostly unprotected from the rain as Trump held a large umbrella to cover himself. The move was noted by many on social media who slammed the president over his umbrella etiquette.
Once again, it never occurs to trump to hold the umbrella over his wife, only over himself. He is incapable of the most basic courtesies. https://t.co/4U7fYumTe1— Willing to discuss (@buffsblg) October 15, 2018
