Melania Trump: With Great Infidelity Comes Great Power

 

 

Amidst Russian indictments and claims of domestic abuse against a former White House aide, who would think that another bombshell from the Trump presidency could take hold of American media yet again?

In a recent article from the New Yorker, writer John Farrow reveals more details about an alleged extramarital affair between President Trump and former Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal. The affair, allegedly lasting 9 months in 2006, occurred a few years into Donald and Melania Trump’s marriage, and only months after the birth of their son, Barron.

Or two, I should say, as Trump and Melania sleep in different rooms according to Michael Wolff’s book Fire and Fury, notably the first couple since the Kennedys to sleep separately.  

More than a third of Americans believe that Melania should leave her husband. Amongst scandal after scandal in the White House, what is the First Lady to do when her philandering husband is the most powerful man in the country?
