Melania Trump vanished three weeks ago, and since that time, Donald Trump and his White House have made one false or misleading claim after another in an attempt at covering up whatever is really going on. Things hit a new low when an angry and defensive tweet appeared on Melania’s Twitter account which turned out to have been written by Donald Trump. Now John Boehner of all people is weighing in.
Whether or not you care about the fate of Melania Trump or her marriage to Donald Trump, this story is politically relevant, both because it’s a major White House scandal and coverup, and because the chaos of the situation is likely to impact Donald Trump’s ability to deal with his various criminal scandals. It’s why the media and the public have begun asking ever-louder questions about where she truly is, and why she’s vanished from public view. Boehner has a theory.
Here’s what retired Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner has to say about the matter, according to MSNBC: “I think Donald Trump promised Melania that he would not win, she didn’t have to worry about ever living in the White House … probably why she doesn’t look real happy every day. Well, maybe one reason.” So his theory is that Melania has vanished due to general unhappiness and/or inability to deal with the disastrous situation she’s found herself in.
The bottom line is this: Donald’s Trump’s wife has been missing for three weeks. He’s tried to cover for it by insisting she was looking out a window at reporters when she clearly wasn’t, and by falsely putting out a statement in her name. If this were anyone else, the police would be getting a search warrant for their home.
