Melania Trump, no matter what one thinks of her, is a huge victim in the circus that is her husband’s
deranged exercise in extreme narcissism presidency. She is being humiliated as story after story of his affairs come out, and she has to do all she can to shield their adolescent son Barron from all of the madness and try and spare his psychological health for the life he will have to live once they are out of the White House. Therefore, as things get to be more and more bizarre and chaotic, it should come as no surprise to anyone that the First Lady who never wanted this life is reportedly seeking a way out of it.
According to a family confidante who spoke with US Magazine, Melania Trump is miserable. The persona said anonymously:
“She is very, very unhappy with her life. If she could, she would get away from Donald and just be with her son.”
Now, far be it from me to speculate on just why Melania Trump married The Donald. However, he is a fat old man who is practically old enough to be her father, and she was an accomplished fashion model and businesswoman in her heyday. It really doesn’t make sense that she married him for love or the usual reasons people get married. He is a supremely unpleasant person, even from afar. There’s really no way to know, but I personally suspect that Melania had other motives — she wanted a son to be an heir to Trump’s fortune, she wanted to secure her immigration status — there had to be some material reason here, and now she is reaping what she has sown.
One can muster a bit of sympathy here — or more. After all, it would be humiliating for any woman, for the entire world to be talking about how her husband cheated on her with porn stars and Playboy bunnies. Plus, she has a young son who is being swept up in all of this, too, through no fault of his own.
All in all, no matter how Melania Trump came to be in this situation, hopefully she leaves Trump’s disgusting ass and lets her son have some semblance of a normal life.
