There’s been a lot of buzz lately about a photo of Melania Trump looking really happy to see Justin Trudeau, but for all we know, that photo might have simply captured the moment at an odd angle. The real story about Melania right now involves, well, Kim Jong Un – and it’s not actually a real story.
If all that sounds confusing to you, imagine how it must sound to Donald Trump. After all, it came from his mouth today. During his G7 press conference today, Trump said this about his wife: “The first lady has gotten to know Kim Jong Un, and I think she would agree with me, he is a man with a country that has tremendous potential.” If that doesn’t sound right to you, then you’re onto something, because Trump’s handlers later had to admit that Melania Trump has never even come close to meeting Kim Jong Un.
So did Donald Trump make up this fake story on purpose? After all, his lying is getting more frequent and more ridiculous as the walls close in on him. Or did Donald honestly believe that Melania and Kim Jong Un have spent quality time together? The only way this could have happened would have been if Melania were with Donald during one of his meetings with Kim, so this would mean that Donald is hallucinating about Melania having been there when she wasn’t.
We’re not sure which scenario is worse. Either way, Donald Trump is simply not mentally, cognitively, or psychologically fit to be President of the United States. This guy has to go. It’s time for the 25th Amendment. It was literally written for situations like this.
