If you’re anything like me, you’ve wasted several hours of your life and perhaps even a few good brain cells on wondering just why in the hell Melania Trump is not only with Donald Trump but has stayed with him over all these years and through all of his bullshit.
He’s not a nice person. He’s not even a nice person to her.
Now, a few unconfirmed social media reports have speculated that Melania has actually flown the coop — departed the White House, and Trump, to take her young son and live with her parents in Potomac. But if that does actually happen to be true, she’s doing a damn good job of hiding it, because she still acts like the good little trophy wife in public — albeit, with a few more “eat shit” looks than what would perhaps be considered normal.
But it still has to make you wonder what’s keeping her around. She once stated in an interview with MSNBC that she fell in love with Trump for his “amazing mind.” But let’s get real. We all know that’s a huge crock of shit if we’ve ever heard one.
It seems that the general consensus among us regular ol’ citizens is that Melania tied the knot and continues to subject herself to the horrors that are Donald Trump on a daily basis because he was pretty much her meal ticket.
In the words of one of Donald’s favorite hairbrained rappers, “I ain’t sayin’ she a gold digger…” But, ya know, if the shoe fits…
But after a 2005 report from the New York Times has begun to make its rounds once again, it seems that our assessment of Melania’s cash-driven motives isn’t actually too far off.
According to the Times article, Melania gave a speech to a business class at New York University as a fresh newlywed in 2005 and was questioned whether she would still be with her husband were he not loaded.
“If I weren’t beautiful, do you think he’d be with me?” Melania quipped in response, essentially confirming that the marriage was one of convenience, at best.
By that logic, it suddenly makes a little more sense as to why Mel is more than willing to constantly perpetuate Donald’s nonsense even when she has to know how deplorable he truly is — a lady gotta eat.
