What Happens If The First Lady Wants To Divorce The President?

For this country, it’s an unthinkable possibility: What happens if the president’s life partner wants a divorce? We’ve only seen it on shows like 24 — which have a somewhat colorful take on potential real-world scenarios. The president of the United States is widely considered the most powerful person in the world. That means that his influence over the other people in his life often straddles the line between right and wrong, or legal and illegal.

Take the 90s affair between President Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky, for example. Is it even possible that the pair could have a consensual relationship considering Clinton’s power and influence? Could Lewinsky possibly have been comfortable saying “no” to the man? Those are the questions still being asked today amidst the #metoo movement.

But today there are also different questions being asked regarding the president in office right now. Many have debated whether or not First Lady Melania Trump is truly happy in her marriage. Somewhat more bombastic reports actually assert that she’s one of the first people in line ready to “dump Trump.” In her case, the phrase might be taken more literally.

Former White House aide Omarosa is known for her common criticisms of the president. She even appeared on the first season of Celebrity Big Brother, which aired on CBS. During her stint on the show, she blatantly stated that the country was not going to be okay under Trump. Considering many of his actions in office, it’s difficult to argue against those words.

But now Omarosa is saying that Melania’s wardrobe is actually meant to rebel against the president. “Taken as a whole,” Omarosa writes, “all of her style rebellions have served the same purpose. I believe Melania uses style to punish her husband.”

Maybe she’s onto something.

Melania wore an “I Really Don’t Care. Do U?” jacket when she visited a Texas border facility last year. 

Omarosa said, “She wore that jacket to hurt Trump, setting off a controversy that he would have to fix, prolonging the conversation about the administration’s insensitivity, ruining the trip itself, and trying to make sure that no one asked her to do something like that again.”

But if true, it begs the more important question: Could Melania leave her husband, even if she wanted a divorce? Could she really speak out against such an overbearing and powerful public figure? When does her lack of comfort in her marriage cross the thin line from legal to illegal? Likely, we won’t know the truth until many years after Trump leaves office.

Then again, Omarosa believes that Melania is waiting until the end of the term to file for divorce.
