The outfit that Melania Trump wore during a visit to Egypt on Saturday was suited for mockery by the Twitterati, it seems.
The first lady capped off a four-country trip to Africa with a stop in Egypt, sporting a white hat, necktie and jacket that seemed a touch familiar to a good number of Twitter users.
Specifically, many commenters were reminded of Belloq, the Nazi-friendly archaeologist from 1981’s “Raiders of the Lost Ark.”
“Melania doing her best impression of Renee Belloq, the villain archeologist in Raiders of the Lost Ark,” one observer noted.

“So was she trying to look like Belloq, the Nazi-sympathizer bad guy from Raiders of the Lost Ark?” asked another.
“Melania woke up this morning and decided to cosplay as Belloq,” yet another ribbing read.
“Also, how could I forget Belloq was a plagiarist in addition to aiding and abetting Nazis?” wrote another commenter, in a seeming reference to accusations made about Trump’s speeches in the past.
Interestingly enough, while speaking with reporters on Saturday, she weighed in on a number of topics, including some people’s apparent obsession with her wardrobe. According to USA Today, Trump said that she would like people to “focus on what I do, not what I wear.”
Good luck with that.

Who wore it better Melanie or Dr Belloq? I’m going with the First Lady because I don’t want to sleep on the first couch again, but that Belloq was a very good person pic.twitter.com/IMmm3Tb6jP
