The day after Christmas, Melania Trump joined president Donald Trump in Iraq to surprise U.S. troops. On her way home from the overseas excursion, FLOTUS departed Air Force One at Joint Base Andrews wearing sunglasses in the dark of night, which surprisingly isn't the most confusing part about her outfit. 

Instead, a very puzzling pair of pants underneath an emerald green trench coat had people wondering if Trump forgot her trousers on the plane. The camel-colored leather pants are almost the exact color of her skin, and, to add to the optical illusion, Melania coordinated with ballet flats in a matching shade. 


Her ensemble had the Internet in a tizzy, leaving them perplexed as to what on earth she was wearing. "Can someone tell me why @FLOTUS got off of Marine One without pants and shoes and wearing sunglasses at night? I’m legit curious," one user wrote. Another critic thought FLOTUS was just wearing a very short (nearly invisible) skirt. "Holy crap. That is a MINI, mini-skirt," they said. 

But rest assured, Trump is wearing bottoms. If you look closely enough, you can see the fabric gather at her knees when she walks, as one Twitter user points out.

Always one to turn heads with her questionable fashion choices, Melania told reporters in Africa earlier this year that she wished "people would focus on what I do, not what I wear."
