First lady Melania Trump visits Harvey responders, dines at Whataburger

Preparations were underway Tuesday night at the Coastal Bend Food Bank to prepare for the important visit by First Lady Melania Trump and Second Lady Karen Pence on Wednesday.

First Lady Melania Trump returned to Texas on Wednesday to visit first responders and view recovery efforts since Hurricane Harvey hit more than three months ago.

Trump and Pence also bought lunch for the press pool traveling with them.

Whataburger, a Texas burger chain, has near mythical levels of popularity in the state.

While the First and Second ladies, who were also accompanied by Gov. Greg Abbott's wife Cecilia, stood at the counter to place their order, the Secret Service stood outside. "We here in the press van, however, are burgerless", tweeted presumably hungry CNN reporter Kate Bennett.

Another poll from Quinnipiac University also found that 29% of those surveyed approved of the TCJA, while 53% disapproved. In fact, the Republican tax cuts are even more unpopular than tax hikes passed under presidents Clinton and George H.W.

"On our way out of town, @FLOTUS & @SecondLady chose to stop in to @Whataburger for some lunch!"

Grisham has not yet responded to tweets from eager Texans asking what the First Lady ordered at Whataburger. Thanks for stopping by'. They will see the remains of that family's home, along with the FEMA manufactured home the family is living in now.

According to KZTV, Trump and Pence also met with several families whose home was destroyed during the hurricane and made a stop at an elementary school in Aransas Pass.

The category four storm ravaged Texas in late August, killing at least 60 people.
