After reading a post over on Nan’s blog, https://sayitnow.wordpress.com/2018/06/23/does-melania-care/, I started to think about why Melania Trump doesn’t simply leave her husband, the Glorious, Supreme Leader of America, Donald Trump.
I guess, if she left him, especially right now, she’d be labeled a whore, a cheater, and a money seeking b**ch like every other woman who’s accused his royal highness of wrong doing. Very few women want to go through that, I’d imagine. “Blame the accuser” is an American motto, especially in regards to women speaking out against powerful men. Thus, many, many women simply refuse to put themselves through it. Trump’s other wives got divorced from Celebrity Donald Trump, not psycho, lunatic President Trump. President Trump is far worse. He’s Celebrity Trump on very bad steroids with the power of the Presidency behind him. Thus, a 24/7 smear campaign would go into effect should Melania leave Trump and, worse yet, speak out against him. Rudy Giuliani would certainly “find” pictures of her sleeping with (fill in the blank) to PROVE what a horrid human being she is. Perhaps they’d pull a Henry the 8th and accuse her of sleeping with her brother; then call for her beheading. Trump’s base would cheer for that. His base, which, like it or not, is in the tens of millions, would also call for her to be “locked up” and whatever NDA’s and pre-nups were in place would surely slam into full effect. All these things, I’m sure, weigh on her decision to stay or not to stay with Trump. I’m not saying she’s a saint, or didn’t know exactly what she was getting into when she married this guy, but, her life, should she dump Trump (great phrase, that, “dump Trump”) would be in shambles both emotionally and financially if she did.
Anyone thinking a ride into glory awaits women who speak out against powerful men who’ve hurt them is simply not paying attention to reality these days. The attacks for leaving Trump, should Melania do that, would be ceaseless and backed by millions of rabid loons who worship Herr Trump like a deity. Does anyone honestly think otherwise? “Coming out” against Trump has not gone well for other female “coming outers.” Hard to say what’s in another person’s mind, but, if I knew the living hell Trump would make my life by daring to go against him, I’d be afraid to go against him, even knowing what a pig/monster he is. Could I do it? Don’t know. But I certainly do feel she was a damned idjit to marry him in the first place. He is a disgusting human being. She made her bed. I don’t feel all that terrible for her, but, in many ways, I do feel sorry for her.
