Melania Trump is ‘very, very unhappy with her life’ & wants to get away?

2016 MTV Video Music Awards

Us Weekly has been all about Melania Trump for the better part of two years. To be fair, Us Weekly went all-in on the entire Trump family during the 2016 election and beyond, devoting multiple covers to light, humanizing stories about how normal they are. The publication has also devoted several covers to Melania’s “humiliation” and the problems within the Trump marriage. By now, I think we should all just make our peace with the fact that Melania’s life is a hellscape but she’s not leaving it (or HIM) anytime soon. But sure, let’s allow Us Weekly to try to gin up some sympathy for Poor Downtrodden Melania, who had a “week from hell” because of Stormy Daniels and the other one.

As the crow flies, it’s not quite 11 miles from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue to Andrews Air Force Base, and via Marine One — the presidential helicopter squadron — the journey takes mere minutes. Even that brief amount of time felt too long for Melania Trump on Friday, March 23.

According to the official White House schedule released the previous evening, the first lady was slated to travel on a chopper with her husband,President Donald Trump, from the White House South Lawn to Joint Base Andrews, where Air Force One would whisk the couple away to his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida. The president would then stay on for the weekend, while she’d return after their 12-year-old son Barron’s weeklong school break.

When departure time hit, however, Melania chose to take her own motorcade to the base instead, meeting POTUS on the plane and avoiding any photos together. “She’s very independent,” a source explains in the new issue of Us Weekly.

Another family insider says her emotional state is even worse [following the Stormy Daniels revelations]. “She is very, very unhappy with her life,” says the insider. “If she could, she would get away from Donald and just be with her son.”

Melania has increasingly shown her anger through public gestures. Her March 23 solo motorcade trip wasn’t her first. The Slovenia native pulled the same move on February 16, when the alleged McDougal affair first came to light. The first lady’s trip to the State of the Union address January 30 — shortly after first news of the alleged Daniels affair — was also by private motorcade, breaking with White House tradition. Despite these moves, spokesperson Grisham tells Us reports that Melania is ashamed “are false, and I’d challenge the sources saying those things to do so on the record.”

“Spokesperson Grisham tells Us reports that Melania is ashamed ‘are false, and I’d challenge the sources saying those things to do so on the record.’” There you go – Melania’s spokesperson went on the record to say that Melania Trump does not feel ashamed whatsoever about her husband being a pervert, a sexual predator and a cheater. And if you need further proof, this is what In Touch Weekly has:

The president insists an affair never happened — and Melania believes him, one of Trump’s friends exclusively reveals. “She is very in love with her husband, and she believes her husband,” says Federico Pignatelli, the founder and owner of NYC’s Pier 59 Studios, who’s known Trump for nearly 30 years. But Federico insists Melania, who hasn’t commented publicly on the scandal, isn’t concerned. “She really doesn’t care,” he states. “At all.”

Trump braced Melania for affair claims back in 2010, an insider shares. “He told Melania that while he had known Stormy, he never had an extramarital affair with her. Melania chose to believe him then, and continues to now.”

Stormy (given name: Stephanie Clifford) passed a polygraph test in 2011. Her story has also been corroborated by a friend she confided in after she and Trump, 71, had what she told In Touch was “textbook generic” unprotected sex.

But Federico insists that Melania, 47, “knows exactly who she married. She knows her husband likes women. [Donald and Stormy] knew each other, yes. [But] Melania believes her story is wildly exaggerated,” he says.

[From In Touch Weekly]

There you go. Melania doesn’t care, she believes her husband, she doesn’t feel humiliated at all and she just likes to travel separately from Senor Baby Fists whenever possible. Can you even f–king imagine how differently this would be handled in the media if these people were Democrats?

    I think they have an agreement that he can do what he wants as long as he is discreet. The problem is…she didn’t sign up to be FLOTUS and now everything is being brought to light. She didn’t sign up for that…im sure. Once he’s out of office…she’ll serve him

  2. Eleonor says:

    Oh please.
    I see their marriage as a business deal, from the beginning. She doesn’t give a crap about what he does, unless he stops paying, or he changes the number written on the check. I believe she was seriously pissed when she had to start to act like a first lady, or to pretend to act like one FLOTUS, because she didn’t sign for that, this is the only thing I believe.

    • boredblond says:

      Ab$olutely..

    • Play it Again says:

      Agreed. Just like everything else in his life, the marriage is merely a contractual entity. I think the time she spent in New York during the beginning of his term was for a renegotiation of the contract—they didn’t expect him to win and she didn’t sign on to be a First Lady, so she probably got some good concessions from him in return for the added duties.

    • Megan says:

      I think all of these poor, sad Melania stories are setting up her return to NYC at the end of the school year and Ivanka taking over the first lady duties. Ivanka’s role in the west wing has been a total failure, so she wants to save face by moving to the east wing.

    • Rachel in August says:

      Well the rumor goes, Reporter: “Would you have married him if he wasn’t rich?” Melania: “Would he have married me if I wasn’t beautiful?” That’s the story I read. So if that’s true they both have huge egos and this wasn’t about love and never was. I think she just wanted financial security and a baby. And wasn’t she just a model/escort anyway?

      • Luna says:

        I wish she would totally let herself go; start wearing sweatpants everywhere, hair in a greasy ponytail. Like, “f*ck it. If I’m staying, I’m going to be comfortable.” Walking around in pj’s, eating peanut butter with a spoon.

      • GreenTurtle says:

        Exactly. Women are always dragged for being with men for financial security, but these men are only with their “gold diggers” because of their looks. It’s transactional. As long as everyone knows what they’re in for….

  3. Who ARE these people? says:

    How much do those motorcades cost taxpayers?

    • PunkyMomma says:

      My thought exactly. No sympathy for her, but furious at what these grifters are doing with my tax dollars.

    • Masamf says:

      Ha!! That would be a very good question to ask the British republicans (with a small r)!! The grass is always greener on the other side…until you get to the other side..then its not as green as you thought!

      • TheOriginalMia says:

        I was thinking the same thing as I read a bunch of posts on RD complaining about Harry & Meghan. They would hate being an American and having to pay for the tRump family.

      • booboocita says:

        At least the British royal motorcades and carriages and whatnot attract tourists, who constitute a revenue stream. Who the hell wants to come to the USA to watch Cheeto’s motorcades? And even if his fans show up to watch, they’re not pumping money into the economy by flying across the pond to admire …

      • AnneC says:

        Trump is actually keeping tourist dollars away. Fewer travelers since he “won” the election. Ugh. It really is a nightmare, but unfortunately we will not be waking up from it until 2020.

      • Wisca says:

        AnneC,

        People were “certain” that W-Bush would would never get a second term. The race will not be a popularity contest as much as a fifty individual state electoral slugfest. After Kerry lost, I learned that I live in an utter bubble. In November 2016, my neighbors were once again sure that the Dem would win. I’d watched the news before voting & saw long lines in the rural parts of my then blue state. I had a sick feeling. . . .

    • minx says:

      “She’s very independent” because she has a separate motorcade?! On our dime?! This trashy grifter is as bad as her husband.

    • jwoolman says:

      Her separate motorcade cost a lot less than a single minute of useless spending on weapons of mass destruction.

      I would much rather have my tax money spent on separate transport for Melania and Donald than on so many other things. Really, the family of the President has to have the leeway to live a reasonably normal life and that will cost extra money for security. She doesn’t want to be stuck in his presence in a small vehicle any longer than necessary or swarmed by media and I think that’s very reasonable. I don’t like being stuck with him even in the same country. Just because my mental health continues to suffer with him being just a few hundred miles away doesn’t mean she can’t try to maintain her own sanity as needed by limiting her exposure to him.

      • minx says:

        Then let the Trumps pick up the tab if she doesn’t want to ride with him. It’s not our fault they have a rotten marriage. This “First Family” is horrendously expensive because there are so many kids, grandkids, in-laws..and because they grift all over the globe and need SS protection. Ivanka and her brothers are lining their pockets because of their proximity to Trump–the government money spigot is turned all the way on.

      • Green_eyes says:

        JWoolman, Sorry I have to disagree w/ you.
        Melania knew who & what Trump was when she married him. He made no secret before & after they got together that he wanted to be President & would run.He went on about it in the 80’s & the 90’s prior to her.. & also the All The Years afterthey we’re together. Maybe she didn’t take it seriously, but that is her problem. Trump ran his mouth on Larry King, and any other interview outlet that would listen. Melania also knew he was a cheater, user, & a narcissistic pig (he was even w/ another woman when he wanted to pick her up. I know they like to say she was smart & different because she wouldn’t give him her number, she took his instead. Doesn’t make her different, she took Trump’s number & contacted him.. knowing who he was. Someone who didn’t take his number or never would have called him.. now that is someone different. Irregardless though.. Melania lived w/ him for a few years before they were even married. Thru all of those years she had to have seen the real Donald then even if she blindly missed all the signs before. Yet, Melania still said yes to being his wife. So that’s a big NO for being me concerning Melania’s Mental health.. My tax dollars should not go to help her mental health & let her travel separately when they are all going to the same place nor should they go to allow them to live separately either. But if we are concerned about mental health..I believe the tax payer’s money can go to much better use and help USA Veteran’s & their mental health.

      • Kitten says:

        Usually agree with you JWoolman but I’m with Minx and GreenEyes on this one.

      • magnoliarose says:

        Adore you to bits jwoolman and your wry sense of humor among other things.
        I disagree here.
        The entire administration is behaving as if their whims should be footed by taxpayers. It is not our responsibility, and we won’t even get into his constant golfing. Their marital issues aren’t our problem.

        @Green Eyes
        That is pure fiction how they met. There is nothing true about it. They lie about everything.

      • Green_eyes says:

        @MagnoliaRose. Oh I agree, personally I believe she was a paid escort. It definitely wasn’t as innocent as they want people to think it was. Also agree they lie w/,every breath.

    • Megan says:

      Motorcades are cheaper than helicopter rides. They should both take the motorcade to AAFB.

      • minx says:

        For me it’s not the actual cost of this particular motorcade, it’s that piled on top of their ongoing greed and avarice. They think the US government exists to line their bank accounts, puff up their egos and treat them like royalty. They work for US. They have no sense of duty or service to the nation. Trump thinks he owns the president seal so that he can slap it on tacky sh*t and sell it to the rubes. Uday, Qusay and Jarvanka are busy selling the US to the highest bidder. Melania doesn’t make the barest effort to be First Lady..she just doesn’t care. I hate the entire family.

      • magnoliarose says:

        @minx
        Agreed. It is the whole mess not just one thing.

  4. Who ARE these people? says:

    Oh look, they’re holding up the prototype for his retirement wig.

  5. lightpurple says:

    Perhaps if she got a better fitting wig? She knew about those affairs years ago. She doesn’t care. No sympathy for her. She can leave any time she wants.

  6. dee says:

    “All locker room talk” No sympathy for this women.

    • Elkie says:

      Any time I think about feeling a tiny bit of sympathy for this woman, I remind myself that she willingly sat her racist Birther ass down on a shopping channel to promote her grotesque husband’s attempt to delegitimise Obama’s presidency.

    • Beth says:

      And the ‘locker room talk’ and ‘boy talk’ was egged on by Billy Bush. I have no pity for this woman. Her always making excuses for her gross husband and supporting his racist birther movement shit, makes her an enabler and a rotten person

    • Masamf says:

      @Dee, exactly! And don’t forget how Billy Bush, in Melania’s own words, “egged on” Trump say “grab’em by the p*$$y………..”.

  7. Beth says:

    If she’s so unhappy, she should just leave. Go. There must be a reason she’s sticking around through this, because if she’s so ‘independent, ‘ she wouldn’t need a man to survive, especially one who treats her like this.

  8. grabbyhands says:

    Aww, the poor little flower. It must be hard to live in total luxury paid for by taxpayers. And she has to see all those stories! Yes, they are the same stories that have been going around about that monster for decades and yes, she married him knowing it all anyway, but it’s haaaaard.

    Now imagine that you’re a woman taking on the job of FLOTUS head first, doing your best to remain calm and classy, working to provide good opportunities for the kids in your country, supporting your husband and yet every f*cking day for eight years you have to hear yourself referred to as a man or a monkey or that your husband is a terrorist that isn’t even American. And no one devotes cover after cover bemoaning what you have to face every day.

    Melania can take a long walk off a short pier. People need to save their concern for someone who actually deserves it.

  9. Merritt says:

    I have no sympathy for birther Melania.

  10. Indiana Joanna says:

    Lost any shred of sympathy for her long ago. She’s as crude, grasping and self involved as he is.

    drump debases everyone in his orbit. Look at the previously honest people who decided it’s OK to steal money from the government since under drump’s influence (most recently Shulkin and Carter).

    Everyone in drump’s world is corrupt.

  11. Leviathan says:

    Pft. As if these assholes would know. Come on.

  12. Green Is Good says:

    Nice how Melania doesn’t give a shit about spending taxpayer dollars on her separate motorcade.

    • jwoolman says:

      I would assume it’s not her choice. Motorcades are for security reasons. She can’t just hop in a gas-saving car and drive herself or call an Uber. As with the draconian security measures in New York, those decisions are made by the Secret Service. I’m quite sure she isn’t demanding anything.
      She wants to hide behind the curtains…. you can see it in her face.

      And I certainly don’t blame her for wanting to avoid going with Donald, even if just to avoid media. You know they’ll shout out questions about Stormy Daniels. No matter how reconciled she is to his activities, that’s humiliating for her. She’s not an elected official.

      • A says:

        She could, y’know. Quit. She has a choice. Everyone has a choice. It’s just that the consequences for her choice would be ugly.

        I do blame her for wanting to avoid going with Donald. Sucks doesn’t it, marrying a narcissist like that and having a child with him. I’ll never understand the reasons why she chose to marry him, but if she abides by his ugly personality, then I can only guess that she’s as ugly as he is, or she simply doesn’t care for the people he hurts on a daily basis as a result of that ugliness. Either way, not a good look for her.

      • Norah says:

        so melania gets sympathy and is allowed to use separate cars unlike all the other first ladies. ? good to know – if Mrs Obama or hillary had done that there would have been non stop coverage but for this so called first lady nobody talks about that? shameful that people still give her a pass

  13. aquarius64 says:

    If Trump fathered a child on Melanie’s watch she’s out. That’s living proof he cheated, proof Trump would have to support up to 18 years.

  14. BitingPanda says:

    Welcome to Drumph’s America, we are all very, very unhappy now, why should she get to be any less miserable than the rest of us?

    • justwastingtime says:

      She chose him, and gets well paid for it. I didn’t get to choose, have to see his face all the time, and have lost money (blue state here) since he was elected. Why exactly should I feel sorry for her?

  15. Feebee says:

    I love how she decided to take her own motorcade just “to show him”! Never mind the extra cost of that.

    She signed up for this – and I don’t care if being FLOTUS wasn’t in the original contract – she should get her ass in the car.

    Given how up until now she’s been treated with kid gloves by everyone compared to Hillary (she stayed with Bill because she was an ambitious wench don’t ya know!), I am hoping the flood gates open on this Birther and locker room-boys will be boys condoning, cyber bulling hypocrite, as work averse as her husband First Lady.

    Obviously I’ve woken up on the wrong side of the bed but even in a good mood I have no sympathy for this woman.

    • A says:

      I guess she missed the memo that states that regardless of what embarrassment she faces as First Lady, she’s obligated to show a united front before the country? Look, it’s not about her. It’s about the office of the presidency. It comes with certain expectations, certain benchmarks. You’re a figurehead for as long as you occupy the office and the position, as is your family. Throw whatever tantrum you want on your own time, but in the public, the least you can do is uphold the respectability of the office, even when one of the two of you can’t be bothered.

      But naw. Trump is gonna do his best to sink public trust in the position he holds, and Melania won’t even be bothered to try and do her part to uphold it. Even if it means setting aside her personal feelings. Too bad.

      • minx says:

        Yes. I’m sure there have been many presidents and First Ladies who were fighting over the years; they sucked it up and put on a good face. Or at least they didn’t cost us more money with separate motorcades or by living in another city after the inauguration.

  16. RBC says:

    The US Weekly article reads more like laying the groundwork for a soon to be announced separation/ divorce .Get the public’s sympathy on her side for when she does decide to leave. I can see Melania moving back to New York as soon as her son finishes school for the summer.
    Then some excuse put out by the White House about her and 45 deciding that it was best for Barron to go back to his old school.

  17. Goldengirllover34 says:

    They are really trying hard to make a woman who supported her husband’s racist, xenophobic, sexist, homophobic actions a victim. No sympathy for her. My eyes rolled so hard i felt a damn pop.

  18. ORIGINAL T.C. says:

    Of course the press doesn’t treat wives of conservatives and Democrats equally. I’m still waiting for Melania to prove that she “immigrated the right way!” The press simply stopped their investigations into her Einstein visa and working illegally. Meanwhile FLOTUS HRC was investigated while in the WH and afterwards by Kenneth Star. Decades laters she is still being investigated by congress and being asked to shut up by the press.

    The media and Democrats in general get scared into obedience by the Republican patriarchy and conservative media pundits. They shut down reporters and it works every.single.time.

    • AnneC says:

      Preach. I really think her whole cyber bullying campaign is a giant f you to the country. It’s like she’s saying my husband and I can say or do anything and you all can put up with it.

  19. Pedro45 says:

    Boo effing hoo.

  20. agnes says:

    She knows how a door looks?
    And she knows where the door is?
    Now, she only has to use said door. Easy.

    She earned every nanosecond of misery. Each and every single nanosecond.

  21. Reef says:

    There are very few women on this Earth that have the courage to leave POTUS. It’s amazing everybody thinks it would be so simple to leave the most powerful man in the Western world. I know we all think Trump is an idiot but he’s STILL extremely powerful. We know Melania cares about her son (minor), her parents (who can be deported), and herself (who’s naturalization can be stripped if any of the rumors are true).
    I don’t feel anything for her but I get why she’s staying and I don’t blame her keeping her mouth shut and playing the game.

    • Ewe says:

      Understanding why someone does something doesn’t negate holding them accountable for it. Yes, she’s married to a powerful man who could easily do all of the above and more, but that doesn’t mean she gets my sympathies. She is extremely unhappy – that’s obvious to everyone – but so what? She sold her integrity for money, and I say this because if she still had any, she would do what is required of her as FLOTUS. But no, she’ll take separate cars and live wherever she wants as a snub to her husband, who doesn’t give an eff, at the cost of the American tax payers. She sold herself so as not to have to ever work again and, in my opinion, she’s just using her son as a shield and an excuse not to do what is expected of her.

      • jwoolman says:

        Melania doesn’t owe taxpayers anything. She is not an elected official and even had minimal participation in her bully of a husband’s campaign. She has a right to live her life as she wants. We need to stop assuming that being married to a POTUS means you have to give up your own life, no matter how banal it may seem to others. Forcing her to always travel with that maroon of a husband of hers is interfering with her right to a normal life. He’s lucky she’s willing to travel on the same plane with her. Hopefully it’s big enough that she can pretend he’s not there.

        All the complaints about Obama playing golf or vacationing in Hawaii (his birthplace!) or going out to dinner were stupid and totally unwarranted. Likewise complaints about his wife. We have to realize that normal life activities for the POTUS and family are going to incur extra security expenses. That’s a separate thing, complain to the Secret Service about their decisions for how to do it. The extra expense should not prevent the families from doing normal things and doing them separately. That’s as true for the Trumps as it was for the Obamas.

      • Ewe says:

        @jwoolman We’ll have to agree to disagree on this one :)

      • hmmm says:

        @jwoolman

        Melania owes taxpayers everything. Taxpayers pay for her lifestyle. Case in point: she buggered off to Florida for a spa day on the taxpayers’ dime. She used a separate motorcade from 45′s. Etc., etc. She stayed in NY city for months arguing that Barron needed to finish school. None of this is ‘normal’ especially compared to the sacrifices others have made.

    • ORIGINAL T.C. says:

      “We know Melania cares about her son (minor), her parents (who can be deported), and herself (who’s naturalization can be stripped if any of the rumors are true).”

      Sure, it would be truly cruel for Melania to take her minor son from the influence of his father. Barron wouldn’t be able to learn values such as racism, neo-nazism, misogyny, unprotected sex with mistresses, bullying, making fun of people, pettiness, lying, cheating and stealing. I mean what mother wouldn’t want her child to grow up in such an environmen? He can get a Hitler youths uniform for his 16th birthday from Daddy dearest and go hunt down endangered species with his big bros.

      And it would be simply unfair to have Melania and her parents follow the immigration laws as her dear husband gets ready to throw out legal asylum seekers from African, Central and South American and the Carribean. And cuts off other US citizens from having their own parents immigrate to the US.

      Not to mention the thousands of DACA young people who have dutifully done well in school, held jobs to support our economy and signed up to join the military to die for this country in all our current wars. Melania after all is a special delicate flower that should never work and should be taken care of by all of us. Forgive me Queen Melania!

      • Reef says:

        Ooooweee, this tone of yours is SPICY. What you read and what I wrote are not the same so…in the spirit of not being spicy back. You got it, lol.

      • ORIGINAL T.C. says:

        @Reef

        Sorry for being Spicy! It really wasn’t aimed at you!! I live close to a high Immigrant population and have met some really hardworking DACA kids, Melania’s selfish and mean spirited words attacking them really burn. However, I should not take it out on a fellow celebitchy member, please accept my apology :)

      • Reef says:

        @Original T.C.
        Apology accepted. No worries.

    • A says:

      She lied her way through everything, and now she feels bad that the web of lies she’s entangled in are going to ruin her quality of life? Really?

      The simple answer to all of her sh-t would be to just come clean. Tell the f-cking truth for a change. If she didn’t want to put her son in jeopardy, she shouldn’t have lied, end of. She’s rich, she’s got some assets, she’s in a better position to fight for immigration to look at her more lightly than they would if she were anything other than a marginally rich white woman from Europe.

      I feel bad for her son, and her son only. He didn’t choose any of this. Now he’s looking at a future where, at worst, he could lose both his parents in one fell swoop through no fault of his own. Every child deserves parents who hold their best interest at heart, and he really really lucked out in this regard. That makes me sad.

  22. Ann says:

    She doesn’t live at the White House, she lives with Barron and her parents at a house obtained for them in Potomac Maryland near Barron’s school. I live in DC and heard this from a journalist friend who has firsthand knowledge.

    • Karen says:

      That makes sense.

    • Nic919 says:

      I had heard it was Blair House… but yeah she’s not living with him.

    • jwoolman says:

      If that’s true – she had to have separate transport anyway.

    • Lightpurple says:

      It makes a great deal of sense considering Barron is so rarely seen on the White House grounds. And she’s not at Blair House because the news media would have noticed her coming and going. But this does mean the Trumps are forcing us to cover the expense for securing yet another location.

  23. Ewe says:

    Meh! She married him for money, and considering who she married it proves she has no shame or self-respect. As long as the credit card works, she’ll stay.

  24. Ms says:

    Water is wet.

    Ha aha ha ha ha. “’She is very in love with her husband, and she believes her husband,’ says Federico Pignatelli, the founder and owner of NYC’s Pier 59 Studios, who’s known Trump for nearly 30 years.” This contradiction is ridiculous — if she actually loved him, she would care.

    This cherade is stupid. Everyone knows this creep doesn’t mate for life. Everyone knows Melania hates his guts but he will financially screw her if she leaves.

  25. Darla says:

    Bitch me too, you ain’t special.

    I have wanted to get away since 11/9/16.

  26. Lila says:

    Sometimes, I wonder if Melania even voted for Trump?

    • me says:

      Ha ha ha !

    • jwoolman says:

      Her maroon of a husband voted in the booth next to her and there was no complete enclosure, just short walls around them. He was looking over the little barrier at her ballot while she voted, saw the picture.

      Hope she voted for Hillary anyway… She certainly didn’t want Donald to win.

  27. Nic919 says:

    She isn’t being held a prisoner. She can leave and chooses not to. So no pity. She is only staying to get more money because regardless of the prenup she would get something for having been married over 10 years and having a minor child. New York laws wouldn’t leave her destitute. So if humiliation is the price she pays for more money that’s on her.

    • me says:

      Yeah. I think if he doesn’t win a second term (God let’s hope he doesn’t)…they will divorce. But, it will be on HIS terms. He probably already made a deal with her saying not to divorce him now as it would humiliate him. She might get more money by sticking around longer. I can see him making a deal something a long the lines of “Just stay a few more years…if I don’t win a second term, I’ll let you free with lots of money and full custody of our son. But, we have to make it as if I’m the one who filed for divorce…my ego remember?”.

    “can you …imagine how this would be handled differently in the meds if….Democrats?”

    Yes I can. Watched the media coverage of the Clintons when HRC found out about Monica. Reports of her yelling at bill. Watching the walk with Chelsea between them to the helicopter. “. Friends speaking “anonymously” to,press.

    Sound familiar ?

    And we consider US Weekly and Touch Weekly magazine legitimate reporting “media” now?

  29. Rapunzel says:

    Is it evil of me to think that Melania definitely needs to stay? Like we’re all miserable and you have to be miserable too, lady. You helped create this mess and you don’t get to exit.

    • jwoolman says:

      I doubt that she’s going anywhere until Donald decides she can. The stakes are too high this time. She probably has enough money squirreled away, but he could make her son miserable with joint custody if he’s feeling vengeful (his usual state of mind). Her parents don’t have citizenship yet, so he can threaten them. This is a raging malignant narcissist, people. Look up stories by people married to such. She has to be careful what she says and does. I have no idea what she really believes about anything while she’s married to Donald and he has any power over her. She will say what he wants her to say regardless.

      And please – as if she is the only woman to marry for financial security…. Doubt that she knew the full extent of his disorders before the wedding, though. She’s also not the first woman to be charmed by a malignant narcissist, once the contract is signed things change.

      I hope the stories that she is living away from the White House with her parents and son are true. That child especially needs to be kept far far away from his father. Danger, danger, Will Robinson.

      • hunter says:

        He never wanted custody of his other four children so I don’t see why he would press for custody of the silent one.

  30. Green_eyes says:

    No sympathy from me.. she lived w/ him for years prior to getting married, so she knew who & what he was. She can claim she didn’t know him prior, but I don’t buy it. In any case.. stay or leave for good.. but quit wasting tax payer’s money. That money could feed & house homeless vets or children in need. Even help the mental health of physically or sexually abused children & adults. The list of where that tax money could go is long.. but Melania & the Trump family’s crazy spending of it is no where on that list..

  31. Insomniac says:

    That “very in love with her husband” line was the funniest thing I’ve seen all week. She usually looks like her skin’s crawling at the sight of him. Which I totally get.

  32. MoAnne says:

    I can’t stand this media depiction of Melania as some poor victim. This lady has endorsed Trump’s racist birtherism, explained away his sexual assault comments as boy talk, and endorsed his cyber bullying as him being defensive. She’s no victim! She’s a pos, like the man she married and continues to endorse. No sympathy from me.

  33. mela says:

    F her

    real talk, she is no victim, she is complicit. She is down with Trump and has been for a very long time. i see her as an accessory and enabler to all his horrible actions and potential crimes

    she is a gold digger straight up and they’ve had separate rooms since she was PREGNANT. that is not a real marriage, no love there.

  34. NeoCleo says:

    “. . . she knows her husband LIKES women.”

    Uhhh, NO. Trump clearly has nothing but contempt for women. If I believed in eternal punishment, Trump and his trophy wife have a special place in Hell reserved just for them.

  35. Kelly says:

    I don’t know why some claim Melania can’t leave because Trump would take Barron from her. Trump didn’t even take his precious princess from Ivana when she left. She stays because she chooses to, and because the party of family values doesn’t care that they live separately.

  36. themummy says:

    If she is staying in the marriage because she is afraid of losing Barron, this is actually the perfect time to leave. The whole world is watching. Everyone knows she’s the only real parent in that situation. Everyone knows he is her everything. If she wanted to walk away right now, I think she’d manage to come out on top. Maybe not with money, but she’d have her kid.

    All of that said, she is SUCH a total douchebag. She deserves all of it. After I watched her racist, birther bullshite, I had zero sympathy for her ever again. The whole sham marriage is a bizarre, sketchy arrangement of some sort anyway. And good for her for her excellent gold digging (gross, if you ask me, but ok–she hustled and “won,” if you can call marrying Trump any sort of a win, even for his money), but I think she’s a rotten piece of shit just like the rest of them.

    • Nic919 says:

      She would also win custody of Barron no questions asked. There is daily documented evidence that Dump is an unfit human, and could not be a proper parent. His tweets, his rambling speeches, etc… he could never take custody from her. Especially not in a New York court. But she wants the money … whatever was negotiated for her to stay, because she was ready to leave if he lost the election.

    • Suzy from Ontario says:

      I agree. She wouldn’t have a more perfect time to leave. Not only does she have more sympathy with all his affairs coming out, but she knows stuff… and he wouldn’t want her talking, so I’m sure that she could leverage her silence into good terms. Plus, his pre-nup is probably crap since his lawyers are crap. After all he’s put her through, with a good lawyer she could get out and take him for a lot, and if she’s smart, she’ll do it now before more comes crashing down on his head. I’m sure he’s made threats, which have probably scared her, but he’s a liar and stupid, and a good lawyer could tell her that none of his threats will hold up in court. If she was smart, she’d already have an appointment with a good divorce attorney.

  37. why? says:

    Melania is leaking stories about herself again. Since people didn’t buy PM, she decided to run and whine to USW about just how miserable and unhappy she is. I’m not buying that Melania is unhappy or miserable in the WH. Look at what it has done for her parents, sister, and her friend who received millions from the campaign fund. Melania isn’t going to leave the Dotard because it would mean that she, her parents, and her sister would have to go back to Russia. She would lose all of those glowing articles about what she wore.

    David’s sister called Melania out for not speaking out against republicans who have been attacking the Parkland kids, and Melania responds by leaking another story about just how bad she has it in the WH. Melania is just as unkind, cruel, and self-centered as her husband. Don’t fall for these stories about her being unhappy and miserable. She had a chance to do the right thing about these republicans attacking kids, but instead she decided to make this all about herself.

  38. jferber says:

    Yeah, zero sympathy. You’ll never be Michelle Obama, but at least TRY to genuinely do some good.

  39. gentleorange says:

    Doing something with her platform might make her life more fulfilling. Like maybe finally stepping up as an anti-bullying ambassador and reminding certain republicans that the Parkland kids are just that – children and survivors of a horrific and preventable act. But she won’t.

  40. Rebecca says:

    I do feel sorry for her. I agree that she married Donald Trump for money. What other reason would there be? He has no redeeming qualities. However, that doesn’t mean she has no feelings. Further, she seems like a decent enough mother who loves her son. Imagine how he feels having to hear and read about Trump’s affairs. I think she’s genuinely feeling humiliated for her son and herself. Donald Trump has control of what his and her people say to the press. Just because the media says shes believes Trump and doesn’t care doesn’t mean it’s true.

    I don’t care about her having a separate motorcade. I bet Hilary did the same thing when Bill had his affair. I agree with the person who said military spending is what we should worry about.

  41. Pajala says:

    I think she realizes she would be reviled by half the country if she walked out on the President of the United States while he was in office. Look at how many people have turned against survivors of the Parkland massacre and #metoo women. Regardless of Melania’s millions of flaws, a woman or anyone positioned less powerfully, like teens, in our patriarchal cultures does not rock the boat by taking such a public stance against the most powerful man in the Western world. Nuh-uh.

    • Rebecca says:

      Or it could be that he has an iron clad pre-nup and if she left him shed have to give up the lifestyle she’s used ti.
