KULTURDEBATT | Melania Trumps väg som USA:s första dam har kantats av hån, och när hon hade chansen att bättra på sitt eftermäle tog hon den inte. Det skriver Carl-Michael Edenborg.

En sak är nog alla eniga om angående Donald och Melania Trump: de har skrivit historia. Mitt under det minst sagt intensiva maktöverlämnandet, framkom att den numera före detta first ladyn – eller "flotus", "First Lady of the United States" – hade brutit med en sjuttio år gammal tradition.

"Tea and tour" uppstod 1952, då dåtidens första dam Bess Truman bjöd Mamie Eisenhower på te och gav henne en rundvandring i Vita huset. Sedan dess har denna vänskapliga ceremoni, en sorts "transfer-of-power"-ritual ägt rum varje gång en ny president tillträtt.
