Former President Donald Trump got a temporary respite from the constant bad news about the secret documents seized at Mar-a-Lago, but even a man he once hired, former US Attorney General Bill Barr, believes that Judge Aileen Cannon erred in her decision to have the confiscated materials reviewed by a “special foreman”. Barr told Fox News, “The opinion was wrong in my opinion and I think the government should appeal it.”
The judge’s order halted the Justice Department’s own review of the documents, but not before vague descriptions of the contents of some classified materials were revealed by the press. According to The Washington Post, one particularly sensitive document contained information about a foreign government’s nuclear program. But a source close to former first lady Melania Trump told CNN that her biggest concern about her husband’s criminal investigation is not the possibility that he could face serious legal trouble for storing said materials at his home Slash beach club . Rather, Melania was reportedly unhappy that FBI agents were raiding her quarters. “It upset her,” the insider said.
Another source told Radar that Melania even had to replace her underwear. “Most people don’t realize that Melania is more germphobic than her husband. She hates people touching her and definitely doesn’t want to wear lingerie that FBI agents have in their hands all over the place,” they revealed. But Trump critics aren’t exactly crying crocodile tears over woman with the $75,000 alligator Birkin.
Melania Trump has little sympathy on social media
Los Angeles Times writer Robin Acarian argued that Melania Trump blames only her husband Donald Trump for the inconvenience caused by her unmentioning being searched, and some Twitter users pointed out that this is not uncommon for law enforcement officials Be thorough when looking for an apartment. “Millions of other search warrants have been executed, likely to search the bedrooms of children, spouses, or anyone else unrelated to a crime,” the tweet said. “Criminals often hide objects from innocent people. The FBI is doing its job.”
Acarian and others responded to Melania’s reported distress with the message emblazoned on the back of the former first lady’s infamous army green Zara coat: “I Really Don’t Care, Do U?” There were also jokes about the remodeling of the rose garden at the White House by Melania, who USA Today criticized as boring and lifeless. “I’m sure the FBI left Melania’s room in a much better shape when she left the Rose Garden,” political commentator Chris Hahn quipped. Meanwhile, filmmaker Jeremy Newberger took aim at Melania’s alleged post-search shopping spree, writing, “Imagine Trump’s poorest supporters crying because Melania Trump had to buy a whole new wardrobe after the FBI touched her stuff. So understandable.”
Acarian also couldn’t resist drawing attention to a detail revealed by a radar source who expressed outrage on behalf of Melania. “Even her husband is not allowed in her bedroom,” the insider said.
Donald Trump was reportedly more concerned with the raid than his wife
As of this writing, Melania Trump has yet to speak publicly about the search of her room, and an insider told CNN that she’s not fishing for sympathy because she believes her silence will just make her recent marital troubles go away. But her husband took a different approach. “I just learned that agents searched the first lady’s closets and ransacked her clothing and personal belongings. Surprisingly, they left the area in a relative mess. Wow!” he complained to Truth Social (via CNN). Comparing the spouses’ feelings about the search, a source said, “She cared, but not in the way he cared.”
Other members of the Trump family also expressed outrage at the slip raid. On Fox News, Lara Trump claimed it was a politically motivated move, while Donald Trump Jr. used a meme to highlight the situation with his stepmother’s underwear. Per The Independent, Don Jr. shared a photo of a cheerful man tossing lingerie in the air while sitting in a pile of panties. “Feds in Melania’s closet,” he wrote.
Melania Trump could be trying to make her own money
Donald Trump’s recent legal troubles have some wondering whether or not a divorce is on the cards for the former president and first lady. However, in an interview with The Sunday Times in 2021, Mary Jordan, the author of the biography The Art of Her Deal: The Untold Story of Melania Trump, noted that Donald and Melania Trump have weathered all the criticism and continue to face exposure is the glue that holds them together.
But instead of using Twitter to rally support for her husband and smack back at his critics, Melania has been busy promoting patriotic NFTs. CNN spoke to sources close to Melania, who theorized that she is trying to make money not tied to any of her husband’s businesses. “She might at least be a little worried about how her own life is going to change,” an insider said of Donald Trump’s uncertain future. Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, a former adviser to Melania, also suggested that the former first lady saw dollar signs after federal agents ransacked her room. “No surprise when Melania used the FBI search of her closet as an excuse to spend hundreds of thousands of Donalds dollars on more clothes,” she tweeted.
