They push Melania too hard but this makes her more unlovable (is this the right word?) than ever. She put herself in a blackhole when she remained with Trump, despite his misogynistic opinions. But, on the other hand, who would dare to divorce the future president?
He was just as unattractive - both physically and personality-wise - before he formally put his hat in the ring, and understand that was June 2015. She was married to him for ten years before that. One part of me feels very sorry for her, but the rests feels she made her choice and has to bear the consequences. But even that second part of me mellows and feels sorry for her every time I see a photo of him or hear him. He really is an unattractive man. *shudders*
Who knows how exactly he was in their private moments and she decided to stay in the relationship. I have in mind, as an example, a couple of presenters in greek tv. He was always... provocative, sometimes rude, he was implying things to cause discussions and had no descretion in the questions he asked his guests in the studio. There were 2-3 times his wife said that he is very sweet, caring, polite, he is interested about someone else's pain and tries to help and that she knows that these things are not visible in front of the camera and she understands why people may have a different idea for him. My point is that maybe someone behaves differently in public to maintain an image that "sells" or serves other interests.
