I feel sorry for Melania Trump. I really do. She went along with the program. And every move she made ultimately made her look bad. Literally everything she did in the dark has come out in the light.
She came to this country to start a career as a model. I’m sure she took direction as to how she could get around Visa stipulations and she earned over $20,000 before her paperwork got straight. I’m sure tens of thousands have done worse but she got caught. What might normally get shrugged off will have a bright light shone on because her husband is so intolerant of illegal workers. He wants them all gone. And maybe they can get to come back once things die down.
She married a rich man. Most people would think that a relatively good thing. The rich man she happened to marry is making her earn every Euro (the current currency of Slovenia where she hails from). He’s a serial liar, obnoxious, totally self-centered and a serial cheater. A story is breaking today about a consensual affair her husband had during their marriage. She now had something in common with his previous wives in having to deal with a headline about Donald and another woman.
She tried to be supportive. She agreed to give a speech at the Republican Convention. She had to be way out of her comfort zone. She worked hard and it appeared for a brief moment that she nailed it. Within the hour, we found that her speech had been plagiarized significantly from Michelle Obama’s speech at a previous Democratic Convention. Soon afterwards, she saw nude modeling pictures of herself plastered in the pages of a newspaper and across the Internet. Then, after weeks in hiding. She made another speech which contained lines from a previous Trump wife speech. She also said her signature issue would be to make social media civil again, reduce the meanness. Did she forget who she was married to?
Next week the election will be over. I suspect her husband isn’t easy to live with under the best of circumstances. After becoming the ultimate loser, he’ll look for someone to blame as he never accepts responsibility. Odds are at least some of the blame will land on her.
I’ve seen Donald in real life with each of his previous wives in tow. Both times were at large public events and neither wife looked excited to be there. I come to the conclusion, the downside of selling your soul is the amount of time you have to spend with the devil. I resist the urge to laugh at Melania, for whom nothing seems to work out during this campaign. When it’s all said and done; she’s still married to Donald Trump and deserves some sympathy for that.
