'I'm miserable' Melania Trump hates being the first lady

Madeline Patrick | 17 February, 2017, 00:51

She continues to stay in her NY apartment, while her 10-year old son, Barron, finishes school.

According to sources speaking with US Weekly, the wife of Donald Trump didn't sign up to be in the political spotlight when she married him in 2005.

"Melania says she's most happy at Mar-a-Lago".

Asked in a stream-of-consciousness news conference Thursday about what role Melania Trump will play, the president offered up an answer that actually provided us with some new information. "It was Donald's", stylist Phillip Bloch, a family friend of the Trumps, told the magazine. Now that they are already in the White House, rumors still come and go in the world of social media and she has all the interest in making it stop, especially for the youth of today.

Eleanor Roosevelt's high profile enabled her to do something that has been frowned upon for first ladies ever since: use her prominence to make money.

And then there's Melania's accent, with the former model, despite her fluency in five languages, extremely conscious of her heavy native Slovenian accent.

First boy doll, Logan, joins American Girl line
Mattel, which owns American Girl , said the boy doll is part of a push toward more diversity in American Girl's lineup. Logan, an 18-inch doll, is a band-mate and friend Tenney Grant, American Girl's newest contemporary character.

It occurs to me that the only truthful utterance by President Trump over the a year ago is that his daughter "is a wonderful person who always tries to get him to do the right thing". She's reportedly "miserable" in her role of First Lady and struggling to cope with the press and scrutiny that's been forced upon her.

"Melania has the Secret Service take Barron to and from his private school", a source said.

Last weekend saw Melania put down her guard and entertain Japan's Akie Abe in Florida, smilingly/posing/gritting for the requisite photo op at Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens in nearby Delray Beach. "She loves Palm Beach".

As well as managing hospitality in the White House, Melania has been keen to underline her design credentials.

"She was told, 'All you need to do is show up on one day and take photos, '" a Trump family source said.

Trump delivered in his remarks in an epic White House press briefing in which he did not play Teleprompter Trump, his terrible alter-ego, but instead played himself - easy and breezy and willing to answer anything asked of him, however antagonistic.
