Mask-wearing Marla Maples declares ‘I do not choose fear’ as she flies commercially

Marla Maples is rarely discussed, right? Imagine if a Democratic president had two living ex-wives – they would be discussed constantly and “used” for political purposes. But Ivana Trump is *somewhere* on a beach with a man half her age, and Marla Maples is… flying. Marla posted this photo to her Instagram – she wore a cloth mask and she’s sitting on a plane. She says “I choose love… I do not choose fear… I will walk (and fly 😊 🛫) in trust, faith, peace and knowing.”

The positive thing I’ll say is that at least Marla isn’t arguing “I do not choose fear” as a way to avoid wearing a mask. But that being said, it still seems way too early to fly commercially for non-essential business. Marla apparently spent a few months in lockdown in Manhattan (where she has an apartment), but is now in Georgia. Maybe. The Daily Beast also said that Marla was calling into the Covid-hotline the Trump administration set up:

In an effort to combat the coronavirus, the Trump administration has cast a wide net, soliciting ideas from industry leaders, family-connected doctors, foreign officials, TV personalities, and fresh-out-of-college consultants to help solve crises around testing and medical supplies. They also set up an email tipline, on the off chance that someone might send a proverbial silver bullet. Little did they expect that one of Donald Trump’s exes would use it.

During the pandemic, Marla Maples, an actress and the president’s second wife, has stayed in touch with a coterie of friends and informal advisers, with whom she has traded tidbits and medical advice on how to combat the deadly virus. In recent weeks, she has quietly transmitted some of those ideas to the Trump White House, in an effort to get them in front of the president—her ex-husband—and senior staffers, two Trump administration officials familiar with the outreach tell The Daily Beast.

It is unclear if any of these Maples-approved, pandemic-related tips have landed on President Trump’s desk. And it’s not clear which specific tips from her inner circle she has relayed to the Trump team. One of the officials said they first became aware of Maples’ leads after realizing her name had popped up on the “Covid Mail” tipline, an internal White House email account that is regularly accessed by a small group of Trump officials. “[Marla] is one of many Americans trying to be helpful in these tough times,” the second Trump administration official said. “Absolutely nothing wrong with that.”

The White House set up “Covid Mail” to field suggestions and questions from “friends and family,” as well as from American health professionals and private-sector envoys, who are trying to get information on supplies and treatments to the West Wing and federal agencies. According to The Washington Post, which first reported on the system last month, “some officials have privately worried that these [Covid Mail] missives receive priority and distract from more crucial scientific pursuits” regarding the coronavirus.

Judging from Marla’s social media, she’s very much into “wellness,” holistic medicine and New Age spirituality. I would imagine that she’s leaving tips at the White House covid-hotline about that kind of stuff – “prayer can cure viruses” and “maybe this crystal will help.”

    Oh lord. I cannot stand these holistic idiots. I know a few. I won’t allow them near me now.

    “I do not choose fear” – she may be saying that, but I imagine other people are hearing something more like this: I choose to be selfish, oblivious and ignorant, because I believe that my money will protect me and I don’t care about other people, facts, or science. I’m just way too cute, entitled and rich to sacrifice anything for anyone! I deserve to travel, party, get my hair done and eat out. I am proud to be entitled!! Look at me, look at me!!

      What does she do? I think i saw her in a movie once,she seems to mind her business and never mentions Trump did she get some hush money?

      • SamC says:

        I sometimes wonder that too because her divorce settlement wasn’t huge and she didn’t get crazy child support but she lived in LA and NYC and didn’t seem to ever have a job. Maybe she just lived comfortably but within her means, no extra money for Drumpf dirt?

        I’m guessing all of his exes and his current wife got some sort of payout to keep quiet and act like they all get along when he got nominated, I’m pretty sure his first wife claimed he raped her in her biography, now she seems just fine with him.

    She should be choosing a hair brush..

    She’s on a airplane with a BUNCH OF FOLKS with aerosol spray ALL OVER THE CLOSED SPACE… with NOTHING to protect her eyes which are a doorway for viruses and bacteria…

    Aight den!

    She must have a treasure trove of good stories. I sort of feel bad for her tbh

    Somehow doubt the WH takes her calls tho

      I once saw her and Tr**p crossing Santa Monica Blvd in Beverly Hills (looked like they had just come out of ICM & we’re heading toward Trader Vic’s). She broke the heel of her stiletto heel and nearly fell in the crosswalk. Tr**p hauled her up, yelling at her the whole time. At the time I thought “What a dick.” Little did I know. And yes, even 20 years ago he was as ugly and fake as he is now, only slightly less bloated.

    I have a soft spot for Marla Maples. Maybe because she’s a Georgia girl. Maybe because before all this new age mother stuff her life was basically a Jackie Collins novel and I love trash.

  8. lucy2 says:

    She willing was with that orange turd, so sorry, not really someone I want to take advice from on anything. Ever.

    In love we trust, not God? Isn’t that un-American? 😉 This pandemic has really opened my eyes to the amount of crystal-lovin’, tree-huggin’ types who claim to love the earth and humanity, but don’t actually understand what that means. I think we should live as naturally as possible, but the key word there is LIVE — And if you want to do that, you sometimes have to use conventional medicine. I wouldn’t be alive without it. Swinging a crystal over my heart wouldn’t have been a good substitute for surgery, lol.

    So, God wasn’t, “for,” the people that have died because of COVID? K. Cool, cool.

  11. Guest with Cat says:

    If I had ever slept with Donald Trump I think I would be bereft of my senses, too.

    I know she had him when he was still young and not yet orange….but still. Gross.

  12. B. says:

    She must have also been in the mood to finally get some free publicity. I only wish now that she stayed out of the news longer. I knew she was always “off” but when did she get cray cray?
