Melania Trump Knauss GQ interview (HRC GROUP)

Last edited Sat Apr 30, 2016, 12:02 PM - Edit history (1)

It’s easy to think America has changed a lot since Hillary Rodham Clinton was chastised in the early ’90s for her ambition as First Lady—refusing to sit at home and make cookies. But our conception of a presidential spouse hasn’t evolved much. Michelle Obama, a Princeton graduate and legal hotshot who was once her husband’s law-school-era mentor, has been mainly confined to dealing with soft issues: childhood obesity, planting vegetables. Rather than Hillary or Michelle, it was Laura Bush—a teacher who supported her husband’s turning from bottle to Bible—who seemed most suited to Middle America’s idea (or at least a man’s idea) of a First Lady. Of course, the paragon of them all is still Jackie Kennedy, endlessly glamorous and endlessly tolerant of her husband’s philandering.


Melania is as fastidious a wife as she is a mother, which Donald appreciates. Things come easy with her. “I work very hard from early in the morning till late in the evening,” Donald told Larry King in 2005. “I don’t want to go home and work at a relationship.” To the twice-divorced Donald, Melania is terrific. He’s never heard her fart or make doodie, as he once told Howard Stern. (Melania has said the key to the success of her marriage is separate bathrooms.) He can trust her to take her birth control every day, he boasted to Stern; she’s just amazing that way. She has the perfect proportions—five feet eleven, 125 pounds—and great boobs, which is no trivial matter. Stern once asked Trump what he would do if Melania were in a terrible car accident, God forbid, and lost the use of her left arm, developed an oozing red splotch near her eye, and mangled her left foot. Would Donald stay with her?


“How do the breasts look?” Trump asked.


“The breasts are okay,” Stern replied. Then, yeah, of course Trump stays. “Because that’s important.” There are other pluses. He appreciates Melania’s restraint when it comes to Shopping While Trump. “She’s never taken advantage of that situation, okay, as many women would have, frankly,” he has said. (“I prefer quality over quantity,” Melania tells me.) Donald does his part to make things work, too. “He is a very understanding husband,” Melania once told an interviewer. “If I say, ‘I need an hour, I’m going to take a bath,’ or I’m having a massage, he doesn’t have nothing against it. He’s very supportive in that way.” She lets him have his space; she’s not “needy” or “nagging,” as she tells me.


As for passions beyond the familial, there are a few. Melania dabbles in design. Her line of affordable gem-spangled jewelry and watches, launched on QVC, reportedly sold out in 45 minutes during its initial broadcast. (Melania’s caviar-infused anti-aging creams haven’t sold as well, though a federal judge ruled in her favor in a lawsuit she filed against its promoters.)

3. She sounds like a simple person who happens to be beautiful and therefore married a rich guy!

 

That's OK with me! Let people live, right.

What's important to me is what it tells me about HIM! And what's important to me is if these ridiculous people try to become President or use anything against HRC who is the REAL QUALIFIED PERSON in this race of 2016!

Then yeah let the VETTING BEGIN!

HRC #45

4. a friend of mine said knew she was in a serious relationship when she walked into a room

 

and could recognize the smell of her beau's farts. Yeah, it just sounds kind of yucky but it's reality that includes body functions. You really love someone, you love their humanity and their flaws and put up with their farts.

It sounds so much like Trump's wife is simply a servant.

6. I still don't get that comment...

WTF was he trying to say, exactly? That women don't use the bathroom? LOL He's such a ridiculous person. If I saw a comedy about this election season, I'd probably think they strayed too far from reality in writing it. You can't make this stuff up!

9. Melania Trump's father very similar to Trump in looks/personality

 




Her parents Viktor and Amalija Knavs in Aberdeen, Scotland in 2011. They are from Slovenia.

She changed/Germanized her last name to Knauss.

Trump is 5 years younger than her father, Viktor.
