    Sometimes traditional ceremonies can be too difficult to handle – especially when you are not properly equipped. The first lady intended to cut a ribbon with a group of schoolchildren, but then something went wrong.

    First Lady of the United States Melania Trump faced a real challenge during a ribbon-cutting ceremony in the US capital during the reopening of the Washington Monument.

    She simply could not properly cut a stubborn piece of fabric with oversized scissors - perhaps, because she was cutting with the wrong part of the blades, or because the scissors were too dull.

    The first lady, however, didn't seem very upset and handed the scissors with a ribbon to an official to procced with the ceremony.
