Where's Melania?

Post by Allo V Psycho » Wed May 13, 2020 4:27 pm

I'm genuinely curious. In every previous recent American crisis, the First Lady has played a prominent role. I've never been able to fathom her at all. What was the 'I really don't care, do you?' jacket about? But her apparent absence (or is it just from the main stream press?) in this particular situation seems most puzzling of all. A word of comfort wouldn't seem to hurt, but I haven't heard of one.

I have no legitimate interest in their private lives, I don't mean that. But the whole FLOTUS phenomenon means that the spouse of the President is usually a state actor, of some significance. Even no. 10's cat has significance.

I guess I'm hoping for news of something she has done that I haven't heard about. I thought for a while about even posting this.

I really don't care, do you?

Probs just the same as ever: just wandering around that twentieth floor apartment, setting the flowers just right, 'not long now, dear', leaving a toy train on the stairs, 'not long now'.

With Hank, I mean! With Hank!

Not with Donald, god, what an image, sorry if I put that in your head. Obviously not with Donald.

That’s just what she told Trump to keep him away. She’s been telling him that since 2005.

You know who else hasn't been seen for a while? That old friend of the family, Kim Jong-un.

Just sayin'. Don't want to start any rumours.

How pissed off is she going to be when Trump's tax returns get released and she realises the wealthy man she married (presumably for the money) isn't actually that wealthy...
