If anyone thinks that President Donald Trump’s unhinged behavior is simply an act for publicity and the spotlight, they should think again. Trump is just as terrible behind closed doors and with his family.
Apparently, Trump recently exploded at his wife, First Lady Melania, because she was watching CNN while on Air Force One. Believe it or not, Trump has a rule that his White House entourage are not allowed to begin a trip watching any other channel than Fox News. When Trump found Melania tuned into “fake news” CNN while aboard the aircraft, he could not contain his rage and caused “a bit of a stir.”
Following this humiliating incident, the First Lady has just sent a stunning message to her husband in front of the entire world. Melania is standing up to her abuser, and has publicly responded that she will watch “any channel she wants.”
Melania’s spokesperson, East Wing communications director Stephanie Grisham, responded to the recent Trump family drama with a statement on behalf of the First Lady. In the statement, Grisham scolded the media (and the president) for being petty enough to care what channel the First Lady watches. Calling attention to the First Lady’s anti-bullying campaign, she said:
Did you know that every 15 minutes a baby is born with NAS? Maybe you’d like to talk about the 160,000 kids who skip school every day for fear of being bullied, or that 280,000 students are physically attacked in schools every month. 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.”

This is far different than any response we’ve seen from Melania. It sounds like she is tired of being controlled by her husband, and is ready to put even another layer of distance between the already drifting couple.
