It was a global story.
At the White House Easter Egg Roll, during the National Anthem, Melania Trump appears to give her husband a little nudge to put his hand over his heart.
OH MY GOD! Trump is unfit to be president!
Of course, the media were all over this. Twitter went nuts.

Obama made plenty of missteps as president, some truly awful, but he was given a pass again and again.
With Trump, it's nonstop. Everything he does is criticized. The Internet amplifies all the constant criticism.
