Many are baffled by a comment that Donald Trump made Saturday about his wife, Melania.
The brash billionaire held a rally in Pennsylvania where he attacked Oprah Winfrey and unveiled his new 2020 campaign slogan, “Keep America Great.”
The Donald also confessed that Melania is a great first lady of the United States but her life is complicated.
At the much-talked-about campaign rally, Mr. Trump told his supporters: “Great first lady. She’s great. You think her life is so easy, folks? Not so easy.”
It appears that the Republican politician was talking about Melania’s work to fight the opioid crisis.
However, many assumed that the real estate tycoon might have been addressing the rumors that Barron’s mother is hurt and humiliated by the ongoing cheating scandal.
For the past months, the power couple’s relationship has been making headlines in well-respected media outlets and the tabloids after porn star Stormy Daniels revealed that she had an affair with the former reality TV star just weeks after Melania gave birth to their son.
Last week, the president alluded to the speculation that Melania might be suffering because of the story.
Talking at the Gridiron press dinner, he joked about the long list of people who fled the White House by saying that he was not sure who would leave next: “Miller or Melania.”
A source said the former model was furious over the joke and added: “Melania is a very private woman, and it’s hard enough for her to be thrust into the spotlight in front of the world and carry out the duties of First Lady—but, she does so because it comes with the territory of being with Donald. However, making her the butt of a joke, in front of a large crowd of people, is out of line, and disrespectful.”
One commenter bashed the president for his words by saying: “Look what am saying is that he is not a leader or acts like one if you are a president you should be respectful to other. Trump was not a great leader when he was in Puerto Rico.Throwing paper to people like if it was a Basketball.”
Another person defended his statements and added: “He isn’t a politician; he is a businessman, there’s the difference. He is 70 plus and is very smart. Who cares what he acts like if he gets the job done. He is making headway, and people in Washington, the real power that controls the country can’t get him to do what they want. Not just Democrats, but Republicans as well. Had he not won, there would have been UN troops in the country. What Obamacare wanted.”
What do you think is going on with Melania?
