I used to be an etiquette teacher, so I know this very well. Melania is being escorted. Gaga is being “dragged”

Rainspa 87 points ago +89 / -2

Yes, and a huzzah to all those who teach etiquette! BTW, this little piece of etiquette would be taught on day one of ballroom (or social) dance lessons. Ladies are escorted on and off the dance floor by their partners exactly as shown with FLOTUS. Haven't I been telling single pedes to take up ballroom since the Obama admin? Etiquette. Just one more reason to dance.

Why not just make any person willing to commit our service personnel to any active zone or rather by them creating any foreign active zone, without first having to duel with that active zone’s country’s opposite political number or like for like opposition ..... including the country that supports such active zone..... all of those politicians must have to fight a duel using musket pistols with lead shot...!

As Mr Thomas Sewell has often said and has said for many a year, how can we allow our elected representatives to make decisions that have no consequences for them as well as us....!

It’s ridiculous when you really think it through or rather pause to think about it, just how much truth there is to that simple statement....... it effectively applies to how our days and lives are ‘controlled’ by any means you can care to think of....it’s just that cutting as a clear and concise way to explain the unexplainable ....!

I agree. The left is always talking about consequences when they cancel a person speaking freely. I would support legislation that holds a politician specifically responsible for the decisions and actions they make. I realize that "voting" is supposed to be that exact thing, but I think we know how that has been going. Politicians SHOULD be afraid, they SHOULD be held in jeopardy for their actions.

People no longer use correct English, they type it as they hear it. So, "he had better of" (which is really poor English) should read "he had better HAVE" (although in a sentence it is "have" it is bastardized to "of"). Drives me crazy!

To add:

My recollection is that the woman was on side with the sword in scabbard leaving the man's sword arm free to draw. So they could be on either the right or left arm depending on which was the man's sword arm. They could then easily step in front of her and draw.

sidhe007 12 points ago +12 / -0

However, I've read in history of weaponry that all swordsmanship was done with the right hand/arm. Don't know for sure as I wasn't there, lol.

overrun 11 points ago +11 / -0

Indeed*. Castle & fort stairways were usually on the right as you faced them to ascend. The advancing swordsman had the disadvantage of the wall next to his sword arm while the defender above had free swing. However, it was all fun & games until the right-handed swordsman met a Danish housecarl and their left-handed axemen...

A. You couldn't get close

B. They swung from the wrong side

C. You were dead

http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/28787019/images/1386776365125.jpg

*IIRC, one of the Italian master of arms / instructors taught nobility left-handed swordsmanship. It was an advantage to switch hands in the middle of the fight.

ancroidubh 9 points ago +9 / -0

A long time ago, in a galaxy far away, I was a fencer. Our team coach was a left-handed maestro so when we took a lesson from him, we faced a left-handed opponent. We were somewhat of a power in our little corner of the universe and other teams tried all sorts of strategies to beat us. One was to present a lineup of lefties. What a surprise when Coach came up to sign the match card... left-handed.

My understanding from the advanced fashionistas in the house is that ladies clothing fastening is designed and placed for dressers to be able to be conveniently fastened and unfastened. This works out well for we men...

As much as I want to believe this. Her dress was long and she was holding it while walking. So it could just be a case of her not being able to hold onto the Marine.

Facts

79
SuckaFree 79 points ago +83 / -4

A military member in uniform NEVER escorts someone using the right hand...UNLESS they're escorting that person under guard. The right hand is used ALWAYS for saluting superior Officers or POTUS/VPOTUS.

Lady Gaga is being escorted under guard. Notice the Marine's hand placement. He has "her" under positive control. If she were to try to walk away, he'd drag her to where he's leading her.

FLOTUS is being escorted properly, according to uniform regs. No control over her movements, just walking to where she needs to go.

The marine grabs gaga with his left hand and the other marine has flotus latch onto his right arm.

BlazingBear 35 points ago +38 / -3

I don’t think the Marines make mistakes. This definitely looks like how you would escort a prisoner when you don’t want it to be obvious. I am not saying GaGa is a prisoner, although she should be. But the Marines have protocol for everything.

Not a normal social escort. Socially a gentleman OFFERS his arm for the lady to steady herself. She also can be slightly tucked behind his arm so he may better protect her in case of emergency ninjas, zombies, or unwanted suiters. This bicep hold away from his body is not a social move.

I'm surely wrong to do so, but I interpreted the comment, "All famous performers essentially are that" to mean that you believe those performers to be prostitutes. I think of modeling and posing nude to be a kind of paid performance. But one would be mistaken to accuse FLOTUS of having been "that". LOSER Gayga is awful, but I see no need to smear all performers with that derisive term.

TheGin89 6 points ago +9 / -3

Regarding the big dress - you're right, it was pretty big. However, she still could have held up the dress while the marine was on her left with the arm looped around. This isn't correct at all. And the image is not flipped.

6
Notimportant2 6 points ago +8 / -2

You hold up a dress with one hand...otherwise you'd be without hands unless you were sitting or standing perfectly still. And no man would grab a women's arm unless he's using force.

1
Kopykat 1 point ago +3 / -2

As a rennie and cosplayer I can say you can easily hold a dress to walk properly (stairs and all) while holding a escorts arm properly. The dress is no excuse to have him hold her that way. Back in the day big dresses were the norm and the lady holding the man's arm has always been the proper way.

Midlifezombie2020 4 points ago +6 / -2

So based on what I could find, doesn't seem to matter which side the person is on; however, the way in which he is holding her arm is where I find it odd and out of the ordinary.

Also, I go back to Biden's blurb about how Trump's letter was generous. If the have it all as in evidence, and based on all the irregular events and EOs...logic tells me the generous nature of the letter was for Biden to pretty much flip flop.on everything, make himself look like a dictator without question. Do anything and everything to piss everyone off in return for some sort of deal. Question is if on the surface everything looks real, but behind the scenes not so much, then who all on the evil side of it is in the know, as they are under guard and who has no clue yet.

What is odd is she was also escorted the same exact way at the inauguration.

Haven't seen one comment to say they looked at how all the other ladies were escorted. Lady gagme wouldn't be the only person escorted like a "prisoner" if this was relevant.

2
Rainspa 2 points ago +3 / -1

All ladies at all times and all events are escorted in the same manner as Mrs. Trump in the top photo. They are escorted in and on dance floors, at weddings, social events, proms, and cotillions. Socially, even if a lady was wearing a dress with HUGE panniers (side bustles (see Marie Antoinette)) the gentlemen would simply extend his arm to her, and she would rest her hand upon his. At no time would he grip her upper arm/bicep area adjacent to the side of her breast. NEVER.

I have a much more limited experience watching prisoners being escorted, but on TV it looks like the photo of Lady Gaga.

2
Moki97 2 points ago +3 / -1

When a man escorts his partner, tradition has it that he offers his left arm. This tradition originates from medieval times when men escorted women around town and through the fields. Should a threat arise or the woman’s honor require defending, the man’s sword hand (his right hand) would be free, giving him quick and easy access to his sword, worn on his left side.

2
Slechta5614 2 points ago +2 / -0

Ur right hand throughout history was ur weapon hand. That's why we shake hands to show we r without weapon and there in peace. The left hand is ur beauty hand most people r right handed so the left hand was the hand for ur shield or protection it is why we have that hand as wedding ring hand because it's used less and symbolizes unity and protection. The military does everything a certain way. Everything

My husband is a vet and we don’t hold hands (in public...I think he’s too accustomed to no pda! Lol) but he will ALWAYS extend his elbow and I place my hand through it. He has NEVER grabbed me by my own arm or elbow. Is this even an actual marine? They would know protocol.

I assume theres a difference in gesture between a first lady and random street trash celeb, no? Protocol-wise

maybe lady gaga has to hold her dress up, so she couldnt do as melenia did.

the marine or man is always on the left. Maybe the picture was flipped. Her face looks wierd too but it is sir gaga.

It’s not flipped. The bird was worn on her left side.

That stood out to me. Most people are right handed, so the shield is carried on the left arm, the sword in the right hand. The FLOTUS Marine would be in a better position to protect her. I know there's not a literal shield but we salute friendlies with our right hand so they can see we aren't trying to hide a weapon. Many traditions go all the way back.

Left side with a hand on the bicep to guide is a modified police lead. If he took her wrist with his free hand it would be a full police lead.

So the the chick being on left puts the marine in the place of honor?

Reading the comments... seriously though... take a look at the Marines right hand REGARDLESS which side the escorted is on... FLOTUS, on the marines right is being PROPERLY escorted... Lady Gaga, on the marines left, is clearly being “grabbed” and “directed” somewhere.... no respect here, just “this is where you’re going”. The marine’s formation is the same in both photos... this MUST have some deeper meaning

These things we see are clearly all intentional decisions, but none of them distinguish a white hat operation from a new Operation Trust.

Remember that Lady Gaga is the replacement of Maria Abramovic to be the global witch

I know this post is to focus on how each woman is either being held, or she’s holding onto him. But look at both men. The one was gaga, looks sloppy and unprofessional! He doesn’t seem to be standing upright and proud and the other guy looks far more polished and like a real marine!
