Raw Story: According to a report from CNN, while fanatical supporters of Donald Trump were storming the halls of Congress in an effort to stop the certification of former Vice President Joe Biden’s presidential win, first lady Melania Trump was busy hosting a photoshoot at the White House — reportedly for a book she hopes to publish after she departs Washington, D.C.
On Wednesday, Trump spoke at a “Stop the Steal” rally and encouraged the crowd to march to the U.S. Capitol where lawmakers were doing the official count of the Electoral College votes.
That march ended with supporters of the president overwhelming Capitol Police and breaking into the building, which sent Democratic and Republican lawmakers — as well as staffers — fleeing the extremists, who proceeded to trash the place.
While this was going on, CNN reports the president’s wife was engaged in the photoshoot in the East Wing where she exhibited various items to be photographed and filmed.
The report states, “Professional lighting, the sort used for photography and videography, could be seen through the windows of the White House.”
