First Lady Melania Trump has been speaking about her top issues – bullying and the opioid crisis – and looking stylish while doing it. At the same time, she has managed not to rock any political boats while her husband is in office. But, as she tries to discreetly go about her duties, the focus continues to be on the mysterious domestic situation in the White House, and people are wondering what a day in the life of Mrs. Trump really looks like.
Since Donald Trump took office last year, the First Lady has consistently polled higher than her husband – a common occurrence for First Ladies – and she is the most popular of all the adult Trumps, Ivanka included.
But, as E! News reports, the concern and sheer bafflement over what Melania’s life is like continues while the President’s indiscretions pile up and he finds himself in the middle of a new controversy every day.
The claims from adult film star Stormy Daniels and the criminal investigation into Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen plus former FBI director James Comey’s book and press tour reviving allegations of a Trump encounter with two Russian prostitutes have lately overshadowed policy matters and lawmaking.
When there are accusations of cheating, that means someone was cheated on, and that person is the First Lady of the United States. In the past, no one paid attention, but now that her husband is the President, it has become a constant tornado, and insiders say that she hates it.
Despite the constant commentary from both political parties urging Melania to leave President Trump, she has been spending time with her husband and enjoying spring break at Mar-a-Lago with her 12-year-old son Barron. She has succeeded, so far, in maintaining her son’s privacy, and continues to be a hands-on mom while fulfilling her FLOTUS responsibilities.
Also, Melania’s parents Viktor and Amalja Knavs make frequent trips to D.C. to spend time with their daughter and grandson.
After the infamous Access Hollywood tape came out during the Presidential campaign, Melania talked to Anderson Cooper and said that she supported her husband.
“We talked in private,” Melania said. “I accept his apology, and I hope the American people will accept it, as well. It was many, many years ago. [The man on the tape] is not the man that I know, and many times I said, and he’s said it as well, it’s very hard, especially for him, when he decided to run for [the] presidency because he did so much stuff in his life. He was on so many tapes. So many shows.”
It appears that she has the same attitude towards the current controversies and will always stand by the President.
Mrs. Trump has made it a point to only speak when it is necessary and manages to stay out of an exceptionally dirty political climate. Instead, she continues to protect herself and her son while maintaining Barron’s normal routine.
The First Lady turned 48 this week, and even though the President didn’t get her a present, he did praise her for planning this week’s state dinner honoring France, saying she did a “fantastic job.”
Melania Trump has not commented on the rumors surrounding her day-to-day life.
