Melania Says So What if She’s With Trump for His Money, ”If I Weren’t Beautiful, Do You Think He’d Be With Me?’

After eight years of witnessing countless adorable displays of affection during the Obama administration, the current first couple looks absolutely despondent in comparison.

But the Trumps are not the Obamas, which is pretty much obvious daily.

The Trumps themselves have depicted their marriage as shallow as the sand traps at Mar-a-lago.

According to the New York Times, in 2005, the newlywed Melania Trump addressed a business class at New York University.

Why, we have no idea.

A student asked the supermodel if she would still be with Donald Trump if he was not rich.

“If I weren’t beautiful, do you think he’d be with me?” she quipped.

This candid response from the FLOTUS illustrates a marriage as lackluster as any failed Trump business venture. Donald is rich. Melania is beautiful. And so, they are married.

Of course the glimpse Melania gave into their marriage happened long before Donald Trump became candidate Trump who wooed the Republican party while touting his support for “traditional marriage”. But now that he’s President Trump, no moment of martial discourse goes unnoticed.

Do you think President Trump bailing out a few of the big corporations was the right move?

Many have joked about freeing Melania as if she’s unwillingly stuck with her husband and is looking for a way out like many of us are. But Melania has never given any indication that she isn’t a willing participant in the marriage, whether it’s a sham or true love behind the golden curtain.

If Melania now finds herself in a hypothetical marital prison, she holds the key to her own emancipation. No one needs to free Melania but Melania.

Remember, when a tape was infamously released of Donald bragging to Billy Bush about his sexual assault tendencies, Melania quickly dismissed them as “locker room talk.”

And Melania is just fine with the fact that Donald doesn’t want the responsibility of raising his children.

In an interview with Howard Stern, Trump said, “I mean, I won’t do anything to take care of them. I’ll supply funds and she’ll take care of the kids. It’s not like I’m gonna be walking the kids down Central Park.”

It was a good thing Melania met Trump went she did, because she was reportedly out of money and preparing to move back to Slovenia.

Sunday Express, a U.K. outlet reports, “In 1996 Melania and her sister officially left their home in Slovenia to pursue their dreams in the fashion industry in New York. The brunette beauty was an impressive model and was said to be continually enthusiastic about her work.” However, depsite working for famous photographers, she never really blew up in her career. A friend said when when Melania met Donald in 1998, “She ran into Donald just at the right time. She was just about out of money, at the end of her rope and about to move back to Eastern Europe.”

Sounds like Melania lucked out, huh?

Three years later, in March 2001, Melania was granted a green card in the elite EB-1 program, “which was designed for renowned academic researchers, multinational business executives or those in other fields, such as Olympic athletes and Oscar-winning actors, who demonstrated ‘sustained national and international acclaim,’” according to The Washington Post.

What did Melania do? Model. She modeled for Camel cigarettes and once hugged a six-foot inflatable whale in a string bikini for Sports Illustrated. Quite extraordinary, right? The nickname for EB-1 program is the Einstein visa. You totally think Einstein when you think of Melania.

Melania Trump even brought her parents over from Slovenia, her extraordinary homeland, possibly though “family migration,” which is a program Trump is trying to stop. The award of the EB-1 visa does not address if she worked without authorization or misrepresented herself to enter the U.S. or if she sponsored her parent via family immigration or ‘chain immigration’ — as President Trump calls it.”

The Washington Post has questioned Melania’s ability to even qualify for the Einstein, “How did she convince immigration authorities that she qualified for the EB-1 program? Morrison, the former congressman and immigration expert, said that Melania Trump’s resume in 2001 seems ‘inconsistent’ with the requirements of the visa.”

Unfortunately, no one can answer this question, but maybe it has something to do with being in a relationship with a rich and powerful man. The Washington Post reported, “In 1998, at age 28, she began dating Trump after meeting him at a party, an association that raised her modeling profile. She started appearing on Page Six of the New York Post and in other celebrity columns on the arm of the real estate developer.”

In 1998 she is dating Trump, who loves women from other countries, and in 2001 she was granted a green card in the elite EB-1 program.
