The amount of information that has come out about Donald Trump’s extramarital affairs or the way he has been accused of (and even admitted to) sexually assaulting women makes us wonder just how First Lady Melania Trump justifies her marriage to such a horrible man.
Throughout his presidency, evidence of Trump’s many affairs continued to be exposed and it was obvious that it was taking a toll on Melania as the First Lady hid from the public eye for weeks at a time, spending as little time in the White House as possible. Due to her continued support for her husband, many have dismissed Melania as completely senseless and docile — but that wasn’t always the case.
An interesting tidbit from Trump’s past, from the book The Trump White House: Changing the Rules of the Game, stated that Melania had actually broken up with Trump after she spotted one of his ex-girlfriends leaving his New York City penthouse.
The author of the book, Ronald Kessler (a friend of the Trumps), stated that Melania broke up with Trump “on the spot.” They had only been dating a few months, and she ordered her clothes to be sent back to her home. Kessler wrote:
She didn’t care about the billions of dollars or the beautiful Mar-a-Lago or the beautiful apartment. She just broke up with him and she ordered her clothes to be sent back from Mar-a-Lago, she called the butler Tony Senecal, and told him to send the clothes back.”
Unfortunately, the breakup didn’t last long. Kessler recalled:
Within a week. Donald woo-ed her back, and sure enough she sent her clothes back to Mar-a-Lago, but that gives you a little insight into her character and of course Donald was impressed by that as well.”
If Melania thought Trump would shape up after that, she got a devastating reality check just a year later. In 2006 Melania had given birth to their son Barron, and Trump was already cheating on her again during that time — which was not just his highly publicized affair with adult film star Stormy Daniels, but his relationship with Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal, as well.
Melania has been humiliated by Trump in front of the world, and her husband shows no signs of becoming a decent human being. No one would be surprised if even more affairs come to light in the future and at this point, Melania probably expects it.
