The alleged love affair between President Donald Trump and adult film actress Stormy Daniels has been dominating the new cycle for the past two weeks, but reports are only now surfacing of how first lady Melania Trump has reacted to the allegations that her husband had a relationship with someone right around the time she gave birth to their son, Barron.
As The New York Times recently reported, the first lady “was furious with her husband.”
“Mrs. Trump and the president have had a tumultuous relationship at times over the years, but few episodes have roiled the peace as much as the news surrounding Ms. Daniels. The reports of a payoff blindsided the first lady, who was furious with her husband, according to two people close to the couple. She has kept a low profile since,” read the report.
After revelations of the alleged affair, the first lady also decided not to visit Switzerland with Trump, where they would have celebrated their 13th wedding anniversary.
After canceling out on the trip last minute, FLOTUS decided to visit Florida instead, which made people wonder if it had something to do with the revelation of her husband cheating on her only one year into their marriage, but her office shot down the speculations — or at least tried to — by issuing a statement.
“The laundry list of salacious & flat-out false reporting about Mrs. Trump by tabloid publications & TV shows has seeped into ‘main stream media’ reporting,” first lady’s spokesperson Stephanie Grisham tweeted. “She is focused on her family & role as FLOTUS — not the unrealistic scenarios being peddled daily by the fake news.”
It seemed Melania would rather relax at a spa at Mar-a-Lago than make a public appearance with her husband.
“She has kept a low profile since,” sources said.
However, the report about Melania being furious with her husband’s alleged infidelity and the part about her being “blindsided” suggests she had no idea about her husband’s alleged affair — even though Trump’s personal lawyer allegedly paid Daniels hush money before the election.
The Daily Mail reports the first lady will be at her husband’s first State of the Union address.
