Melanie sat next to former President Barack Obama and shared the remainder of her row with Michelle Obama, Bill Clinton, and Hillary Clinton.

There’s a morbidity to joking that Melania Trump had more fun at a funeral than with her husband, but then again, there’s a morbidity to everything surrounding the current first family. We might as well take whatever Obama-related memes we can get.
