The First Lady appears to prod her husband and he swiftly gets the message, placing his hand over his heart. Subtle though it was, most viewers at home noticed and quickly took to Twitter to share their reactions. "I cannot stop watching Melania trump nudge her husband to remind him to put his hand over his heart. I TOLD y'all she needs to be here," one social media user wrote.
The Late Show's official Twitter account posted: "When I saw that footage, I almost forgot to put my hand over my face." Another follower tweeted: "*Anthem plays* Trump: oh I know this song! Melania: *nudge*. Trump: I know, I was just seeing if you would notice…" A fourth simply commented: "This #EasterEggRoll was a hot mess!"
Melania Trump appears to nudge President Trump before the anthem
The US President and First Lady hosted their first White House Easter Egg Roll on Monday. Melania, who wore a pastel, tea-length dress by Hervé Pierre, was a vision in pink as she told attendees: "Welcome to the White House. This is the first time that my husband and I are hosting this wonderful tradition." After thanking staff members, who worked tirelessly to make sure that everyone would have a "memorable experience," Melania added: "I want to thank all the military with us today and all the military in this great nation and servicemen and servicewomen all around the world who are keeping us safe. As we renew this tradition, thank you for joining us. On behalf of the President and Barron we wish you a great fun and beautiful day."

White House issues statement in response to cruel Barron jokes
Melania and Donald were joined by their 11-year-old son Barron Trump, who was making a rare appearance. The schoolboy currently lives in New York City with his mum, although Melania travels to Washington D.C. for important engagements. The pair will relocate to the White House this summer after Barron finishes his school year.
