Current First Lady Melania Trump has experienced more hate and judgement from the Left in the recent two years than nearly any other First Lady. It often seems like no matter what she does, or where she goes, someone attempts to peg her as unsavory or even downright criminal.
Melania has been accused of being an illegal, of sleeping her way to the top, and even of hating immigrant children, but by far, the most common rumor is that she doesn’t love her husband. Standing just steps away from the famous Sphinx in Egypt during part of her African tour, she vehemently denied the rumors to ABC News.
• Melania looked radiant and classy as she stood against the gorgeous backdrop, smiling and nodding to reporters. But there’s always that one “guy,” isn’t there? A reporter from ABC News posed the question first: was her husband, Donald J. Trump, really a philanderer? Did he cheat on her, and if so, how did she feel about it?
• Not one to be phased by the paparazzi, Melania simply smiled back and responded without missing a beat. “It is not a concern and focus of mine. I’m a mother and a first lady, and I have much more important things to think about and to do.”
• Despite the fact that it was about as straightforward an answer as you can get, another reporter persisted. She politely allowed him to finish and then continued by saying, “I know people like to speculate and media like to speculate about our marriage,” adding that, “…Gossip sells newspapers, magazines. …unfortunately, we live in this kind of world today.”
• A third question about the Stormy Daniels’ incident and how it affected her relationship with the President also failed to sway her. When the reporter asked her whether her and her husband, “were okay,” she smiled again and simply answered, “Yes. Yes, we are fine.”
• However, Melania did admit to feeling annoyed by the rumors from time to time, especially when they’re flagrantly untrue. She indicated that they “aren’t always pleasant,” and can be challenging to deal with, suggesting that she knows the difference between the truthful and falsehoods.
• The rumor factory has never been kind – not to Melania, not to anyone in Hollywood, and really, not even with the towns and cities we all live in. That’s why most of us grew up hearing the adults around us tell us that spreading rumors and gossip was wrong in the first place. Attempts to sully the President’s relationship with Melania are little more than an indirect attack on President Trump; if the Left can make his wife hate him, it will knock him down a peg. The good news is that logic is extremely flawed, and it won’t happen.
