Laura Bush didn’t seem to have any problem handling the gift with grace.
Michelle Obama first made a snarky comment about the Trump inauguration, then she put down Melania’s gift saying it was too much and given outside of protocol. But turns out she did the same exact thing, showing once again how hypocritical she really is.

Former first lady Michelle Obama appeared to cast fun at first lady Melania Trump again Tuesday on “The Tonight Show” over an exchange the two had on Inauguration Day when Trump handed Obama a baby blue Tiffany & Co. boxed gift.
Host Jimmy Fallon asked Obama what was going through her mind as she and her husband, former President Barack Obama, waved goodbye from Air Force One after the inauguration.
“A lot was going on that day … that was a day,” she responded, adding an anecdote about how her daughters wanted to have a sleepover with friends the night before the busy day.
“So there was that and the Tiffany’s box … it was just a lot,” Obama said, as she made a face in apparent attempt to take a swipe at Trump and the exchange the media deemed “one of the biggest mysteries of the Trump administration,” and one that “befuddled” the Obamas. More

Michelle thinks she’s the first First Lady to come from nothing? I guess she never bothered to read up on any prior presidents and their wives.
Way to thumb your nose at a thoughtful gift, Michelle. I have never seen another person, of her stature, be so ungrateful. Don’t look a gift-horse in the mouth…
This actually shows that Michelle did not have enough confidence to deal with being given the gift and that she’s just rather nasty and says anything for media attention

Obviously, Michelle is jealous of our beautiful @FLOTUS It drives her crazy that Melanie totally ignores her attacks. Michelle says “when they go low, we go high.” Now she is going low and Melania goes high.

No class Michelle doesn’t know how to recieve a gift graciously, the Obamas are two peas in a pod, suffer from delusions of grandeur.
