She has risen.
Melania Trump performed one of her classic disappearing tricks while her husband was formally charged with 34 Class E felonies last week. That is, she was not standing by her man in New York as he was arraigned on Tuesday, nor when he went on about all the ways he had been wronged in a post-arraignment speech back in Mar-a-Lago later that day. Two of Trump’s sons and their wives and fiancées were there, but Melania and Ivanka skipped despite convenience of the location. In the speech, he didn’t mention the absent Melania, but did mention Ivanka, as well as his youngest and oft forgotten daughter Tiffany, who is allegedly trying to fill some awfully tall stilettos.
Where was Trump’s wife? That’s for Melania to know, and Page Six to find out. In the meantime, the New York Post did spot her on Easter Sunday at Mar-a-Lago, appearing at Sunday brunch. It’s the first time she’s been seen publicly in more than a week. Not bad for sticking to theme this Easter season! (Yes, Jesus did three days; Melania did a cool nine.)
The New York Post wrote:
If one were to build a protective cocoon in which one could go on living in one’s own personal Xanadu, an impeccably built version of reality, protected and secure, that’s how one would do it, right? Collect groups of people who applaud one’s entrance into a room, feed them, and then despise them so much that one keeps a velvet rope between oneself and them. It’s a master class.
Melania wore Easter white, and was seen chatting every so often with her husband; she’s standing by her man, in her way. He posted on his preferred social media app:
“HAPPY EASTER TO ALL, INCLUDING THOSE THAT DREAM ENDLESSLY OF DESTROYING OUR COUNTRY BECAUSE THEY ARE INCAPABLE OF DREAMING ABOUT ANYTHING ELSE, THOSE THAT ARE SO INCOMPETENT THEY DON’T REALIZE THAT HAVING A BORDER AND POWERFUL WALL IS A GOOD THING, & HAVING VOTER I.D., ALL PAPER BALLOTS, & SAME DAY VOTING WILL QUICKLY END MASSIVE VOTER FRAUD, & TO ALL OF THOSE WEAK & PATHETIC RINOS, RADICAL LEFT DEMOCRATS, SOCIALISTS, MARXISTS, & COMMUNISTS WHO ARE KILLING OUR NATION, REMEMBER, WE WILL BE BACK!”
Melania posted on Instagram, “Happy Easter!” On the same page, as always.
