President Donald Trump has been able to resist all kinds of scandals since he entered the world of politics in June 2015.
His critics are often dismayed at his ability to retain control of most of his political base while doing some of the most outrageous things observers have witnessed in a long while.
However, the revelations about an alleged affair with porn star Stormy Daniels over a decade ago seems to be having a more lasting impact on the 45th U.S. president.
Miss Daniels is a fierce opponent, who is not afraid to go low when others are urging Trump naysayers to go high. Michelle Obama, she is not, and Trump’s marriage is reportedly starting to feel the stormy weather.
First Lady Melania Trump is the one having a hard time dealing with the constant media attention around the scandal.
A source close to the former model told Hollywood Life: “At this point, Melania feels more humiliated than angry—but, that is not to say she is not angry, because she is, very. However, she feels embarrassed and disrespected the most, like the whole world is laughing at her. For this drama to play out so publicly is beyond excruciating for Melania, and she cannot stand to even look at Donald right now.”
Things are not going to get better anytime soon for the first couple. A big interview with Daniels that was conducted by CNN’s Anderson Cooper will air on CBS’ 60 Minutes on March 25 at 7 p.m. ET/PT.
Although no one expects the adult entertainer to share everything during this sit-down, the whole display will probably be bad for a very isolated president with a disappointing approval rating.
Melania also had to deal with another Trump accuser this week, model Karen McDougal.
A White House insider explained: “Melania is livid after hearing the Karen McDougal interview. She is furious with Donald and really struggling with everything Karen told Anderson. Melania feels humiliated after listening to the details of her husband’s possible infidelity. While Melania does not want to believe that Donald carried on this alleged affair with Karen, she has little faith or trust in him after hearing the interview. She is angry and not sure what to do next.”
Many expect those ladies to play a crucial role in the 2020 presidential election campaign.
