Melania Trump wore a veil to the Vatican on Wednesday to meet the pope, but no head covering a few days earlier to meet the king of Saudi Arabia, a religiously conservative country where most women cover themselves up from head to toe. The answer is a complicated mix of personal preference, diplomatic protocol and religious dictates.

In his campaign for Montana’s lone house seat — already attracting an unusual degree of coverage for its possible national implications — Republican Greg Gianforte got a lot more attention than he bargained for Wednesday evening, after he was cited for misdemeanor assault for allegedly “body-slamming” a reporter seeking to interview him.

The 56-year-old Gianforte is in an unexpectedly tight race for the seat vacated by Ryan Zinke, who left his post to become Secretary of the Interior in President Trump’s administration.
