Mel just wants to go home, where’er that is:
“In mid-November, as President Donald Trump railed against the election results, his wife, first lady Melania Trump publicly agreed with his sentiments. But privately, a handful of days after the final state tally, the first lady tasked an emissary with discreetly finding out what was available to her in terms of budget and staff allocation for post-White House life.
She is a Trump, grifting until the bitter end. Also: the answer is not much. Mel only gets a piddly $20K Ameros/yr and she only gets it if Lord Damp Nut dies. Win-Win!
“While the President is busy figuring out a way to stay in the White House, the first lady is determining what to put in storage, what goes to Trump’s New York City digs, and what should be tagged for shipment to Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida.
Seriously, count the silver Whitey House staff.
“She just wants to go home,” said another source familiar with Melania Trump’s state of mind. Asked how the first lady feels about rumors her husband might announce a 2024 bid, the source added: “That might not go over well.”
As you may recall, Mel stayed in NYC well after Lord Damp Nut moved to DC, and allegedly worked out a bribe via some sort of pre-nup rejiggling (see what I did there), and doesn’t particularly like the job of being First Lady, what with not caring about eff’ing Christmas, kids in cages, etc., so this totally scans.
I’m just amazed she isn’t seen sprinting across the lawn into the arms of her Secret Service detail and hopping in a stretch limo with a hot tub and the sound of champagne corks popping.
