“Melania Trump Doesn’t Deserve Your Sympathy”

“Here, Melania is a victim of her husband’s brutishness; she is passive and silent, has no political opinions but instead is a sort of tabula rasa for America’s women, on which her treatment is proof of President Trump’s innate misogyny. President Trump’s casual misuse of his wife is a domestic tragedy with national implications.
But that narrative only works if, in fact, you believe that Melania is a blank slate or, at least, a woman simply acted on rather than a woman actively collaborating with her husband’s ideologies.”

Realizing that it’s probably not a good idea to be lulled into sympathy around Melania, I can so easily imagine her turning around and revealing herself to truly be Trump’s partner in his delusions and gaslighting.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
