First Lady Melania Trump seems to be distancing herself from her husband more than ever before, and she’s not afraid to raise her voice against her unhinged husband.
Likely tired of his scandals and the way he publicly humiliates her on and off camera, Melania has not only been getting more distant from the president in her projects in the White House, but in her public statements as well.
Just over the last few weeks, Melania has trashed her husband after he insulted NBA legend LeBron James, who had just opened up a school for at-risk youth. After seeing her husband insult James’ intelligence, Melania released a public statement via her spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham that said:
It looks like LeBron James is working to do good things on behalf of our next generation. And just as she always has, the First Lady encourages everyone to have an open dialogue about issues facing children today.”
And when Trump recently threw a fit after catching Melania watching CNN instead of Fox News on Air Force One, her spokeswoman released another bold statement from the First Lady, standing up to her husband:
Seems kind of silly to worry about what channel she watches on TV (any channel she wants btw) or if she heard some recording on the news.”
While no one in Trump’s administration can be given too much credit because they’re so complicit (especially the president’s family members), it’s nice to see the First Lady taking a stand. It’s not the first time she’s done this, either. Melania has made some very public displays of her annoyance with Trump in the past, after his affairs and hush money payments were exposed.
In one notable and very public instance, Melania ditched Trump after they got off the plane with their son Barron. When Trump paused on the tarmac to wave at the cameras, Melania looked cold as ice as she stormed right past her husband! She didn’t acknowledge his presence at all — not even when he turned to face her — as she walked straight to the motorcade. Here’s a great video of that:

Melania’s public trashing of her husband, while mild and passive aggressive at times, is a nice sight to take in as Trump gets a taste of his own medicine.
