Where’s Melania?

Ever since Melania came down with a mild case of The Rona, she’s been MIA from the campaign trail. A no show.

Ladies. That’s embarrassing.

Yeah… yeah… she still has a lingering cough from COVID. Just like she had to take time to recover from that… what was it? Kidney surgery? I don’t want to pooh pooh real health issues because, as a Sista’ I know you can’t take your health for granted.  But we’re not buyin’ it.  Even the boring middle-of-the-road USA Today puts “lingering cough” in quotation marks when explaining why Melania ditched her husband campaigning after he got back on the campaign trail like the  “superman” we know he is (not).

Now, you know neither you nor I could pull a stunt like that.  We’d be labeled “difficult” or “angry.”  As in “Angry Black Woman.” And why wouldn’t you want to support your man, if he just recovered from a life-threatening illness? Unless your marriage -isn’t really a marriage…?  And you’re not about serving the American people. You’re just out there for you.

Melania did have the common sense and decency to show up for the October 22nd debate.  She even put on a mask. And you know that was a big effort for her.  But, walking off stage after the debates, Melania appears to yank her hand away from The Donald and then he appears to push her off the stage. Watch the video clip below and decide for yourself.

Since Trump hit the campaign trail hard again post debate hitting 2, 3 or more battleground cities a day, Melania hasn’t shown up. It’s clear she’s not having it.  It’s a transactional marriage gone wrong.  “She does what she wants, when she wants … She can be a contrarian,” a former White House staffer said, according to CNN.

Melania’s bad behavior is unprecedented. No modern First Lady has been absent from the campaign reelection trail.   Melania, of course, is needed on the campaign trail to appeal to suburban (white) women. So much for that…

My question is if The Donald is such the “tough, macho man,” he says he is, who can kick everyone’s behind, why can’t he control his woman?  This should give all his Alpha male supporters pause before voting.
