Has French First Lady Brigitte Macron joined the #SaveMelania movement? Her words to French paper Le Monde upon return from hers and her husband's trip to the States seem to indicate so. Though she spoke highly of Melania's sense of humor and warmth, Macron still couldn't help but spill some tea:
"[Melania] cannot do anything. She can’t even open a window at the White House. She can’t go outside. She’s much more constrained than I am. I go out every day in Paris. "
Though meaning is often misconstrued in translation, the sentiments seem to echo what many Americans have been speculating since the 2016 election: That Melania was somehow trapped in a marriage and eventually chained to her husband's improbable presidency.
Naturally, Twitter couldn't help but run with Macron's words.
