Over the two-plus months since the it became clear that Donald Trump had indeed lost the 2020 presidential election in a humiliating landslide, we’ve heard almost nothing from First Lady Melania Trump, who has remained out of the public eye and made no statements regarding her thoughts on her husband being a failed, one-term president.
That should surprise no one, according to Melania’s former best friend, Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, who notes in an op-ed she wrote for The Daily Beast that the first lady is just as guilty as her husband when it comes to the endless trail of death and destruction he’s inflicted on the country:
“I wish I could say I was shocked by President Trump’s actions, but sadly I can not, or say I don’t comprehend Melania’s silence and inactions, but pathetically, they are both expected. Melania knows how to ‘Be Best’ at standing up and reading from a teleprompter and not from the heart. She and her husband lack character, and have no moral compass. Although my intentions to support the first lady in the rollout of her initiatives were always pure, I’m disheartened and ashamed to have worked with Melania.”
Wolkoff also makes it clear that while some may try to suggest that Melania is just another of the Donald’s victims, she’s actually just as bad as him, and that means she has blood on her hands, too:
“Many still believe that Melania is powerless, but don’t be fooled; she is an abuser too, of the worst kind. The kind that speaks kindly to children. The sickness is under the skin. Melania knows and supports Donald and his viewpoints. If you hit him, he’ll hit you back harder. He’s the brass knuckles, aggressive guy, and she elects to grin and bear it. She turns a blind eye. The truth is she’s actually encouraging him to go for it. Be aggressive. She’s his biggest cheerleader. Well, he should pay a price. No one is above the law.”
In just 3 more days, the Trumps will no longer inhabit the White House, and tens of millions of us will celebrate that fact. But we should never forget that the Trumps have brought horrific suffering and misery on more people than can be counted. All of them — every last one — should be indicted, tried, and placed in prison for the remainder of their pathetic lives.
