In a new Vanity Fair piece called Inside the Trump Marriage: Melania’s Burden, author Evgenia Peretz examines the relationship between our new POTUS and First Lady — and unlike many of the political power couples before them, this is truly a sad story.
The outlet starts at the very beginning of the romance (for lack of a better word), revealing how the former model was secured a visa by a modeling agent/Trump friend, and how she later met the controversial businessman at a NYC party where he secretly asked for her number while his real date was using the restroom. Classy.
From there, sources close to the couple say Melania was the “perfect match” for The Donald because her quiet, supportive, and unchallenging nature allowed him to do whatever the hell he wanted, unlike his previous failed marriages.
The investigation reveals many disturbing details of the Trump couple’s relationship, but probably most heartbreaking of all is the account of Melania becoming pregnant with their now 11-year-old son, Barron.
After seven years of dating, and six months into their marriage, the then-35-year-old had reached “checkout time” for women — according to Donald’s standards — and Melania reportedly had to promise to “get her body back” in order to have kids.
“A visitor to one of Trump’s homes, late into Melania’s pregnancy, recalls him remarking that he agreed to the baby on the condition that Melania would get her body back. ‘She promised him that everything would go back to the way it was,’ says this guest; it struck this person as a ‘contract.’ And he was simply rude to her. ‘There was no ├óΓé¼╦£How do you feel?’ No opening of doors, making sure she didn’t fall. Just ├óΓé¼╦£You wanted to have a baby.'”
Sad. But believable.
This really isn’t all that surprising considering Drumpf literally told Howard Stern that same year:
“I mean, I won’t do anything to take care of them. I’ll supply funds and she’ll take care of the kids. It’s not like I’m gonna be walking the kids down Central Park.”
This is our President, y’all.
