First Lady Melania Trump may be low-key trolling her husband.
Melania only follows five people on Twitter. Obviously, one of those accounts is her husband’s personal Twitter account as well as his @POTUS account, and she also follows Vice President Pence and his wife Karen Pence.
But the fifth person is none other than Barack Obama.
That’s got to sting for Donald Trump, who rose to prominence on the back of the birther movement, claiming that Obama was born in Kenya. Trump has repeatedly shown his willingness to trample on Obama’s legacy with his own policies and often blames his predecessor for anything that goes wrong in his own presidency.
And back in 2011, it looked like Melania was on board the birther train, appearing on the “Joy Behar Show” to echo her husband’s sentiments.
“It’s not only Donald who wants to see it (Obama’s birth certificate),” it’s the American people who voted for him and who didn’t vote for him,” she said at the time. “They want to see that.”
Melania is so done with this
But now, it looks like Melania is quietly registering her support for Obama… or at least her disdain for her husband.
The relationship between Donald and Melania Trump has come under scrutiny since the very beginning of Trump’s presidency, when Melania chose not to move to Washington, DC, until months into Trump’s time in office.
Then, there was the infamous hand swat in which Melania appeared to hit Trump’s hand away when he was walking ahead of her during a visit to Israel. And she wasn’t exactly enthusiastic during his State of the Union speech.
And now, with rumors swirling that Trump had an affair with porn star Stormy Daniels, it may just be that the First Lady is registering her frustration on Twitter, quietly following the man that Trump clearly can’t stand.
