Did Melania Trump Really 'Like' My Tweet approximately Her Marriage?
final week, my 93-character tweet approximately Melania Trump and her marriage to President Trump “blew up the internet,” as they say. At 9:15 p.m. on May 2, I re-posted a GIF of that notorious Melania smile-turned-scowl from the inauguration with the comment: “Seems the only wall Donald Trump’s built is the one between him and Melania.”
Shortly thereafter it was “liked” by someone using the handle @MELANIATRUMP. It was the verified personal account belonging to the first lady. And it was only the moment time she’s ever “liked” a tweet, the first being her own when she opened her account May 23, 2012 with, “Hello Twitter!”
Was I shocked? Yes. Flattered? Of course. But was it really Melania Trump who liked my tweet?
I’m convinced it was, despite a denial by Melania’s spokesperson Stephanie Grisham, who told PEOPLE Magazine, “The first lady wasn’t aware of this until I brought it to her attention.” When asked who did conclude it whether not Melania herself, she nonchalantly replied, “Who knows … it isn’t her primary account these days,” adding that the password to the account had been changed.
“Who knows?” That’s it!? That’s the official respond over how the personal Twitter account of the first lady of the United States of America basically reinforced the well-liked belief that she hates her husband!?
Let’s assume for a moment that Grisham’s right, and that it wasn’t Melania. So then it was either a hack, a really pissed off staffer or 11-year-traditional Barron. Call me crazy, but any one of the alternatives is incredibly newsworthy, and the public is owed the truth.
whether Melania was hacked, who’s responsible? Was it one of President Trump’s dictator pals Putin, Erdogan, Duterte, el-Sisi or Kim Jong Un trying to stir up some serious marital shit between the Trumps? Was it stepdaughter Ivanka, thus fueling another well-liked belief that the two women abominate each other? Was it someone in the “fake” liberal media? whether so, shouldn’t there be confirmation that it was in fact a hack, which would constitute a major national security concern, and that the administration is using the full power and resources of the U.S. government to find out who it was?
Or what whether it was a disgruntled staffer? Someone would occupy to be pretty damn aroused with Melania or the president to “like” a tweet suggesting their marriage was approximately as much a failure as Trump’s Mexican wall and Muslim ban. Shouldn’t we know who that hater is and his current status? Is this person still roaming the White House and/or Trump Tower, able to cause even more harm or danger to the Trumps and perhaps the nation, or has she been fired?
And what whether it was actually itsy-bitsy Barron who, on his way into the kitchen for a late-night string cheese and juice box snack, noticed mom’s laptop open, saw the tweet and decided it was time for a itsy-bitsy mischief? whether so, the kid just blasted right to the top of my list of favorite Trumps.
But let’s be real: not a bit of these possibilities seem as plausible as Melania liking the tweet herself. We’re supposed to accept that someone with incredibly nefarious motivations accessed the First lady’s Twitter account and made a mockery of her marriage, yet we’ve been if no credible information to support that desperate assertion (remember Anthony Weiner’s “hack?”). Sorry, Ms. Grisham, but “who knows” is not an acceptable respond.
So back to Melania. Did she and The Donald occupy a fight that night and in a fit of rage she thought, “You want a wall… I’ll give you a fucking wall!” Or does the normally tight-lipped, composed first lady actually occupy an awesome sense of humor and thought, “Why not? Wink, wink!” Or, was it a really unlucky slip of the finger that she was unaware of until Grisham shrieked, “OMG, Melania, what the hell did you conclude!?”
Until we accept a more logical, detailed explanation from the Trump team, my money’s on Melania sending her absentee husband, and us, a message…
