Will this porn star affair really be the thing that brings Donald Trump down? After Teflon Don has (personally) evaded legal consequences for any number of criminal investigations? Paying hush money to Stormy Daniels is the thing that’s going to get him his first indictment??
That certainly seems to be the opinion of most legal experts following the grand jury activity in Manhattan lately. Fair enough, we suppose, considering someone did already serve prison time for it — his lawyer Michael Cohen, who explicitly said he was committing the crime at the direction of his boss. It’s only fair if no one is above the law.
It’s just… it seems like such a small crime. We mean, it’s a felony, sure, but in comparison to being sued by a rape accuser and investigated for failing to return top secret nuclear documents, it just seems like small potatoes. Right?
Well, not to one person close to Donald. According to a new source spilling to People, it’s the scandal Melania Trump is still pissed about, all these years later! A “social source” told the magazine on Thursday all about the former First Lady’s life at Mar-A-Lago these days. It turns out she isn’t letting her hubby’s legal problems get her down — because no one is allowed to bring any of it up!
“Melania is leading her own life, and still feels happy being at Mar-a-Lago, surrounded by people who love her and who never talk about reality, or bad things about her husband.”
Especially the Stormy Daniels stuff! She “wants to ignore it and hopes it will pass, but she doesn’t sympathize with Donald’s plight.” Why? The source claims she’s still upset about what he did to her since learning about it along with the rest of the country!
“She remains angry and doesn’t want to hear [the alleged hush money payment] mentioned.”
And who can blame her?? Trump allegedly had unprotected sex with the adult film star back in 2006 while Melania was home with the couple’s newborn son Barron. Sure, none of that was the illegal part, but that’s certainly the most upsetting for a wife — even a wife to this guy! According to the source, she’s been angry since 2018 when the hush money payment was reported. We guess like most of us, she took the payment of $130k as pretty solid proof he had something to hide.
But the insider said she no longer lets all that Donald business affect her:
“She is aware of who her husband is and keeps her life upbeat with her own family and a few close friends.”
Sorry, “leading her own life,” spending time with “her own family”… Does this all sound to anyone else like these two are living completely separate lives? Like she’s basically ex-wife number 3 already? Except on paper so Trump can continue to court the Christian conservative vote? Apart from social engagements, well… yeah! The insider claims:
“She does very well with all of her socializing duties. They still see friends for dinner at the club, but live separately and do what they want on their own. They don’t spend that much time together.”
She’s certainly living separate enough that it won’t affect her one way or the other if her husband gets indicted or even imprisoned! Not according to this source, who says:
“Melania loves the beautiful weather and resort town atmosphere of Palm Beach. She is happy when she is in Palm Beach. She has her son and other close family members. They are tribe-like and usually stick together. Despite what happens to Donald, she will be fine. She is well taken care of.”
It doesn’t exactly sound like marriage goals, does it? What about standing by your man? Heck, even Josh Duggar‘s wife went and visited him in the slammer!
Innerestingly, Melania still being upset about the cheating? It kind of bolsters one of Trump’s legal arguments — that the hush money payment was to cover up the affair for personal reasons and NOT for political ones. Because as it stands, it’s being looked at as in furtherance of his campaign, making it a far worse crime.
Of course, he didn’t pay the hush money until October 2016. So he wasn’t concerned enough with her finding out in the decade between the affair and the election to pay hush money in all that time! But it’s still probably net good for him. You know, if he doesn’t care about having a strong marriage with a loving wife. But we suppose he proved how much he cares about that way back in 2006, right?
What do YOU think of the claim Melania is STILL upset about the Stormy Daniels affair??
