Donald Trump’s Absence From Melania Trump’s Latest Message is Raising Some Eyebrows

Melania Trump spent a little time on Valentine’s Day on Twitter remembering how she spent the holiday in the past but made no mention of her husband Donald. Instead, she spent Sunday sharing photos of herself visiting sick kids at the Children’s Inn at the National Institutes of Health, The Daily Mail reports.

“On this #ValentinesDay, I think of the brave and inspirational children @TheChildrensInn @NIH where I visited the past few years. Sending them love & strength, today & everyday.”

The former First Lady spent the past three Valentine’s Day at The Children’s Inn, based in Bethesda, Maryland. She spent time with the kids, participating in arts and crafts projects. The young patients are all dealing with deadly diseases. This year is, of course, different as the couple settles into post-presidency life at Mar-a-Lago.

On Friday she announced the official opening of her post-White House office, and while she didn’t say what projects she plans to work on, but one source told CNN she hopes to continue work on her “Be Best” campaign to help kids deal with online bullying. She’s hired three former staffers from her White House days to get things going.

Melania also seems to be a person who needs a lot of quiet time and as such, she’s also spending a lot of time at day spas.

“She goes to the spa, has lunch, goes to the spa (again), and has dinner with Donald on the patio,” another source told CNN.

Another person added: “It is not unusual for Trump to spend several hours a day there [at the spa], enjoying the benefits at her disposal, often going twice in a 24-hour period, for massages, nail care, facial treatments, or other items on the menu.”

Both sources say that unlike the former president, Melania has left White House life behind.

But Twitter being the snark shark-infested place it always is, couldn’t help but notice that in a holiday that’s all about love, she didn’t mention her husband. And of course, said hubby couldn’t post since he’s been permanently banned on the platform.

And of course, reports also say Melania is jealous of all the positive attention First Lady Jill Biden is receiving and sources say she is “lamenting the media focus on her successor.” Jill and President Joe Biden have recently been featured on the cover of People Magazine and Jill has also recently been interviewed by Parents Magazine. She’s also been given numerous speaking engagements and a number of reviews have been singing her praises.

But let’s face it, Melania’s reserved behavior works against her, and she did a number of things that aren’t particularly cool. Perhaps the most notorious example is when she wore the “I don’t Really Care, Do U” jacket to visit children at a detention center in Texas. Her “Who gives a f*ck about Christmas?” comment didn’t endear her to people either.

Twitter users also remember her sentiments about kids in cages and responded to her Valentine’s Day tweets with these pointed tweets. Frankly, the best thing about Twitter really is its users.

Others couldn’t help but note Melania’s jealousy of Jill Biden:
