Melania Trump won’t leave the White House: She’s ‘aware of the dangers of Covid-19′

President Trump Introduces Nominee For Associate Justice of the Supreme Court Judge Amy Coney Barrett

Melania Trump is a Christmas-hating monster who doesn’t give a crap about children or human rights abuses or her husband. But… Melania also social distances a lot and wears a mask sometimes. I mean, Melania was social-distancing from her husband for years. But Mel was still in attendance at the superspreader event for Amy Coney Barrett on September 26th. The Rose Garden Massacre. So Melania is corona-positive too. But unlike her husband, Mel isn’t looking to throw herself covid parades.

First lady Melania Trump has no plans to leave the White House while she convalesces at the Executive Residence after contracting Covid-19, an official confirmed to CNN on Monday.

The decision marks a stark contrast with her husband, President Donald Trump, who also tested positive for coronavirus. On Sunday, the President left Walter Reed Medical Center for a motorcade drive-by past a few dozen supporters outside the hospital, potentially risking exposure to his Secret Service agents.

“Melania is aware of the dangers of Covid-19,” the official told CNN. “Potentially exposing others is not a risk she would take.”

NBC News first reported the first lady’s decision not to leave the White House. The first lady made the decision to cut back on travel and public events six months ago because she was aware of the extensive apparatus of people involved in her movement, and did not wish to chance their health, nor her own, the White House official told CNN. Last month, the first lady traveled to New Hampshire to visit a hospital program focused on treating babies born with Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome. It was her first official solo trip since the pandemic began. In recent weeks, however, the first lady had begun to increase her profile.

I laughed at “The first lady made the decision to cut back on travel and public events six months ago…” She barely did anything before then! Mel can go months without being seen! But yeah, at least she’s not putting in any kind of effort as far as “visiting her husband.” At least there’s that.

As for Barron Trump, who is only 14 years old and easily seven feet tall, he is by all accounts corona-negative? “All precautions are being taken to ensure he’s kept safe and healthy,” Melania’s spox told media outlets. So at least there’s that. Like, I couldn’t give a crap about Melania and Donald’s health, but I hope Barron isn’t sick.

    She can stay in the White House without having to deal with him, while staff attend her every wish and need and she knows Barron is with her parents. She’s staying where she is because she doesn’t want to expose them to the disease.

    ETA Kayleigh McEnany just announced she tested positive.

  2. TIffany says:

    All this time I thought that Melanoma was living with Barron and her parents on the Potomac, now I think that kid lives with him maternal grandparents full time now that they have citizenship.

    • SpankyB says:

      I think she does but it’s probably easier to quarantine at the White House where there’s a medical facility just in case. And it keeps her parents and kid safe.

      • TIffany says:

        I am saying that that kid always lived with his grandparents.

        We don’t know where Melanoma is most of the time.

      • SpankyB says:

        I agree with Barron living with the grandparents. I assumed Melania would live where her kid lives, with the added bonus of not having to be around Trump. And she can probably go back and forth to NY without being noticed.

  3. Nicole says:

    Good to see Barron owning his sullen teenager look. I love it. Trump chin appears to be a thing. They all have it (except Ivanka who had an implant).

    • Jb says:

      For some fun entertainment, I highly recommend exploring the TikTok hashtag #SaveBarron2020.

      The kid clearly despises his father, and is trying to subvert him in every public appearance he has to make. It’s excellent.

  4. tammy says:

    I can’t remember the last time I saw a picture of Barron, I can’t believe how tall he is!

    • Nanny to the Rescue says:

      I had to google his age, I thought surely Kaiser is mistaken that the boy’s only 14! But no, that’s his age! (Sorry, Kaiser, will not doubt you again!)

      I’d think he’s some tall bodyguard’s son if he didn’t have the obvious unfortunate Trump facial features.

  5. Eleonor says:

    I bet she is beyond thrilled to skip all those rallies, and political engagements.

    • CoKatie says:

      When did she actually accompany him to his rallies?! This is a “do nothing First Lady”, so I am side-eying the “cutting back” comment.

      Also, she is aware of the dangers of Covid? Then what is with the monkey see/monkey do actions?! She consistently follows the lead of the Trump Family in their NO MASK approach. Even when she wore the mask into the hall of the debate, once seated, the Trump’s removed their masks. She had about a 10 second delay and then followed suit. Disgraceful.

      I agree with one of the posters above. Baron is more than likely at the home of his maternal grandparents. Melania will not risk his health.

  6. GR says:

    Every time I see a picture of Barron I feel sorry for him. Can you imagine having a parent like trump?

  7. Kyla says:

    I bet Donald hates that Baron makes him look short when they’re side by side.

  8. FancyPants says:

    “Potentially exposing others is not a risk she would take.” Oh really??? Since when? Wednesday? As Melania would say about children in cages: Give me a f’n break.

  9. grabbyhands says:


    Like she gives a flying fuck about anyone’s safety (except maybe for her kid) – she’s not out in public for two reasons. 1. The virus gives her an excuse to not even pretend she’s interested in the role of FLOTUS 2. She understands that no one cares about her existence except as an occasionally necessary ornament to prove that she and 45 are still “happily married”.

  10. Suz says:

    So this marks the longest period of time she’s spent at the WH?

  11. DS9 says:

    Melania is staying inside either because she doesn’t have it or because having it is a convenient excuse not to do shit she didn’t want to do anyway.

    Or both.

    I find it hard to believe she got it from Donald but hasn’t given it to Barron. Surely she has more contact with the latter.

  12. Liane says:

    I doubt she actually cares about the public health side of things. What I do like about this though, is that it undermines the messaging being put out about Trump’s actions/decisions … “It’s mild, but I’m going to the hospital.” “I’m going to throw myself a parade!” Is she doing it on purpose?

  13. Stelly says:

    Barron looks like he hates them all.

  14. Valerie says:

    I really don’t care, do u?
