People are going to really dwell on your health and safety if you're in one of the most publicly strained marriages on the planet, especially if you've dropped out of the public eye for nearly a month. Well, folks, worry not! Melania Trump has resurfaced with an oddly deliberate tweet.
It's so performative it feels like proof of life in a hostage situation. And the American public rose up to collectively issue a reply:
I wish her well, I honestly do. She seems lovely - But who stole her phone?— Sonja Torkelsen🇳🇴🦋 (@SonjaTorkelsen) May 30, 2018
There's a certain phrase that has turned up a whole lot recently, and anyway, Mel T's account is run by White House staff.
Melania, don't let Trump tweet for you! His hostility shows through. The phrase "working overtime" is his M/O not yours. Most of us know he is a pig/adulterer & you didn't sign up for all of this. You have participated in this sham long enough. pic.twitter.com/fwo3An7mKp— Emily (@Emilyreilly123) May 31, 2018
Why on earth would she need to tell everybody that she's "feeling great" and "working hard"? Did her boss suddenly appear in the doorway?
Please show us a photo of yourself holding up today's newspaper with the date visible, we want to know you are ok. Blink us a message.— ariagray (@ariagray34) May 30, 2018
No one would have cared about Trump's third wife if he'd stayed in entertainment, but we're looking at someone using the power of the federal government to pardon his buddies and attack his detractors. His army of MAGA-hat trolls regularly issue floods of death threats against his critics. And this person is clearly, grievously disinterested in faithful marriage. How the heck do you maintain your boundaries against the pettiest, most powerful person in the world?
Forensically, these were written by the same person. I know I’m in the minority for saying this, but as a domestic violence survivor, I feel empathy for what I suspect she’s experiencing. Give her space to make a decision. I left with a child under one arm & a dog under another.— Maggie's Mom (@maggiesmom1_mom) May 31, 2018
Been there as well. When there’s an appearance of having $$, you get little sympathy. They call it “ Golden Handcuffs”. But those are the abusers it is really hard to get away from. Especially legal $. And when there are children it makes it extraordinarily difficult.— Lisa P. Lloyd (@challengedmothe) May 31, 2018
Still, there's always the possibility that this is another kind of good news.
Be best, indeed.
