After months of denial, this past week President Donald Trump filed a financial disclosure that seemingly confirmed he gave his lawyer, Michael Cohen, $130,000 as reimbursement for hush money he paid to porn star Stormy Daniels. The adult entertainer made headlines back in January when news broke that she had an affair with Mr. Trump in 2006. With all the drama surrounding her husband, could First Lady Melania Trump be ready to bolt?
According to insiders, despite the First Lady being unhappy because she has to listen to “nonsense” about her husband, she still loves him very much, and she isn’t going anywhere. But, this doesn’t ‘mean that she isn’t questioning her marriage.

The President and First Lady do not share a bedroom at the White House or inside their New York City penthouse, and even though she takes her marriage vows seriously, this isn’t the life she wanted.
But, she will remain loyal publicly, even though the President embarrasses her constantly. Melania has her own agenda and image she is cultivating – and her approval ratings continue to skyrocket amid the scandal.
“She wants to go down in history as a first lady of quiet grace, like Jackie Kennedy, who put up with a lot but stayed the course. She’s playing the game,” revealed an insider.
In Touch Weekly reports that another reason that leaving is not an option for Melania is the scandal it would cause, and that would be too upsetting and disrupting to the most important person in her life, her 12-year-old son, Barron. So, for his stake, sources say she will stay.
But, behind closed doors, the First Lady doesn’t hold back, and she and the President do fight in private. Melania isn’t afraid to yell at her husband when she is upset, and there have been occasions where her unhappiness has crept into public view. Cameras have caught her more than once rejecting Mr. Trump’s attempts to hold her hand.
There have also been reports that Mrs. Trump spent a few nights at a D.C. hotel after the Daniels scandal broke, but there has been no proof to substantiate those claims. She did, however, cancel a planned trip to Switzerland and hid out at Mar-a-Lago.

Melania has allegedly promised to stand by her man as long as he is President and will continue to play the role of supportive wife. She never dreamed Mr. Trump would become President of the United States, but she is beginning to like the respect she has attained as First Lady after years of living an under-the-radar life as an NYC socialite.
She may have earned respect as the First Lady, but that doesn’t mean people aren’t having some laughs because of her situation. After a sinkhole opened up in the White House lawn over the weekend, many people joked that it was a failed attempt from Melania Trump to dig a tunnel and escape the White House.
“Melania, you have to dig your escape tunnel deeper than that,” cracked a Twitter user. “Watch Shawshank again, lady.”
