The First Family comes under a lot of fire for many things. While the President is working to run the free world, those who wish that he weren’t in office, work to undermine both his work and his family.
President Trump is unique in many ways, not the least of which is his family history. In recent history, there hasn’t been a president and third wife in the White House, and while that brought up a lot of debate about their personal history during the election, ultimately the American people decided that it was acceptable and elected him anyway.
Since taking office, the president and his family have suffered attack after attack. At every turn, enemies of the president try to divide the first couple. However, even though we will never know the inner workings of their relationship, every outside indicator tells us that the couple is not just strong, but poised to stay that way for years to come.
According to the Daily Mail, despite his jam-packed schedule, the president took time out to celebrate his wife’s upcoming birthday:
‘President Donald Trump has paid tribute to his wife Melania, calling her his ‘rock’ and ‘foundation’, in an email asking supporters to celebrate her birthday and donate to his campaign.
In the email, he wrote: ‘Family is one of life’s most wonderful pleasures, and serving as America’s First Family has been a truly great privilege! This month, our family is looking forward to a very special day.’
‘Please join us in celebrating the First Lady and my beautiful, kind-hearted and exceptional wife Melania’s birthday by signing her card.
‘Melania is my rock and foundation, and I wouldn’t be the man I am today without her by my side.’
‘She’s the cornerstone of our family, and an incredible mother to our son, Barron. I’m so proud of her accomplishments, and I hope you’ll wish her well on her special day.’
He shared his affectionate comments about the First Lady amid the scandal over claims by porn star Stormy Daniels that they had an affair.
Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, paid the adult actress $130,000 in hush money to keep quiet about her alleged affair with the president.
She also went on CBS’ 60 Minutes last month to reveal the details of their alleged tryst to Anderson Cooper.
Stormy Daniels’ attorney Michael Avenatti has said the porn star will attend Michael Cohen’s court hearing on Monday.
Avenatti believes some of the documents seized on April 9 relate to Daniels, he said on Friday from the courthouse.
He followed those comments up with a suggestive tweet that ‘the weather forecast for Mon looks very Stormy.’
Cohen previously admitted paying Daniels $130,000, which she said was payment in exchange for an agreement not to discuss an affair she claims to have had with the president.
When news first broke that it was suspected Daniels and Trump had an affair around the time of the birth of his youngest son Barron, Daniels denied the sexual relationship.
However, after Cohen spoke about paying Daniels $130,000, she claimed the agreement had been breached, setting her free to tell her story about her alleged physical encounters with the president.
Trump has denied that he had an affair with Daniels, and also claims she made that he had her threatened to remain quiet about their alleged romantic relationship.”
To the liberal way of thinking, the fact that President Trump is accused of the affair with Daniels, that must equal a nightmare for him in his marriage. This theory is supposedly substantiated by the fact that the First Lady isn’t overly expressive about these types of things. However, according to a Newsweek article, that’s just how she is:
“First lady Melania Trump has been subject to a narrative that she is unhappy with her life by President Donald Trump’s side since he took office in January. The public fascination with Trump has ranged from a Vanity Fair article about her ‘burden’ as first lady, a Saturday Night Live sketch depicting her as a bored housewife, a short story by feminist author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie painting her as lonely. So, what is she actually like?
‘There’s a real mystery with the first lady,’ Bennett told fashion website Daily Front Row. ‘I sometimes call her the unicorn, because people are fixated by her. She doesn’t emote a lot—she’s quiet, so there’s a lot of differences (not saying good or bad) from what we’re used to.'”
To say that their evidence that there is trouble in the White House paradise is anecdotal is giving it more credit than it deserves. While there might at some point be problems with the First Couple, at this point, it is not only good for the couple, but the country that we take them at their word and accept that there might be an unlikely relationship that we don’t understand, but it still works.
