The week started with Melania Trump staying at Mar-a-Lago while Donald Trump went back to Washington DC, while floating an official excuse that it was because of Barron’s spring break. Melania has a habit of publicly snubbing Trump ever since his amoral affair with Stormy Daniels went public, and since Stormy’s interview aired on 60 Minutes, she is even more likely to shoot daggers at her husband. Now she’s decided to shoot off a bigger attack than we could have expected.
Melania is now saying to her closest friends that she is “very, very unhappy with her life” and “if she could, she would get away from Donald and just be with her son.” She’s rather clearly told those friends to inform US Magazine that she is very, very unhappy, because it’s precisely what her friends did. Close friends of a public figure never run to the media with such things unless they’re told to.
So now, even while Trump is facing worsening scandals that go from the criminal Stormy Daniels coverup to the expanding Trump-Russia treason investigation, Melania made a point of making sure that the public sees headlines saying how she wants out. So what is her angle? Is she just taking out vengeance on her terrible cheating husband, not caring how it affects his failing presidency? Is it a way to humiliate Donald into allowing her to leave with a large financial settlement?
Everything is going badly for Donald Trump. He’s about to lose his presidency, his freedom, and his precious money. Is he in position to force Melania to stay by using prenuptial agreements and custody threats? He has never been weaker in his life. If she really wants out, she’ll find a way. Then we would be looking at a First Lady divorcing the President for the first time in history, while he’s being ruined for rigging the election in his favor.
