Donald Trump, Melania Trump marriage: Supporter claims POTUS treats FLOTUS better than Barack Obama treats Michelle
There have been a lot of comparisons drawn between current presidential couple Donald and Melania Trump and their predecessor Barack and Michelle Obama. According to one Trump supporter, the current President is said to be a gentleman and treats his wife much better compared to the Obamas.
Politicalflare reports that a Trump supporter with the same display name on Twitter quote-tweeted a video of Donald and Melania, saying “Has anyone noticed that when Donald Trump and Melania enter Air Force One he lets her go first as a gentleman should, unlike Obama he ran in front of whatever you called that thing he is married to.” Being the current presidential couple, any difference in their behavior towards each other is not going to go unnoticed. Contrary to what that supporter felt, many thought Donald does not treat Melania like a gentleman would and there are many examples that might illustrate that point.
One example of which is when Donald and Melania were leaving Air Force One, Donald was seen walking several feet ahead of his wife, getting off the plane first. This photo alone was enough to draw comparisons to the Obamas, who would usually leave the plane together side by side. It was also enough to draw a comparison to another previous presidential couple, the Reagans.
A few etiquette experts have weighed in on this gesture. Jacqueline Whitmore said that Donald’s distance from Melania is leaning towards disrespectful as traditionally, a man should simply be just in front of a woman so that he could catch her if she falls. Elaine Swann also echoes Whitmore’s comments on Donald’s distance from Melania being disrespectful. “The husband at the bottom of the stairs, saluting and greeting the people there, and the wife is still at the top of the stairs - this is incorrect,” says Swann.
Meanwhile, the President is facing an impeachment trial at the Senate. CNN reports that his legal team turned in their response to the charges that the President is faced with, including stating that this attempt to remove him from office is a “charade” while also urging senators to vote against it. Trump is charged for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, to which the White House brief tries to debunk through a 110-page filing.
