It’s OK if Melania Isn’t a Traditional First Lady. But Taxpayers Shouldn’t Pay for Her Choices.

In the seemingly endless first two weeks of the Trump presidency, Melania Trump made clear what many already suspected from her appearance on the campaign trail: She has no interest in being first lady. Melania has yet to appoint a social secretary, press secretary, floral designer, or White House chef, all roles that traditionally fall under the umbrella of the first lady’s office....

As a result of Melania’s failure to appoint anyone to run the White House visitors office, tours of the White House have been suspended. Melania also hasn’t announced her platform—although she has stated an interest in addressing online bullying—or her social schedule. The coup de grâce? She’s not even living in the White House. The Trump administration says she will move from New York to Washington, D.C., at the end of son Barron’s current school year, but rumors swirled this week that she might stay in New York indefinitely.

In one sense, Melania’s refusal to hew to tradition is refreshing. It is undeniably retrograde that it is considered the president’s wife’s job to oversee the traditionally feminine realms of tours, meals, and flowers. And there’s something admirable in Melania’s apparent intention to keep her life the same as it was pre-presidency.

...What’s genuinely troubling about Melania’s abdication of the traditional duties of her office—apart from the fact that the White House, a government building, is currently closed to the public—is that her decision to stay in New York is costing taxpayers a ton of money. According to a widely reported pre-inauguration estimate, New York City was spending $1 million a day on police assigned to keeping the Trumps and Trump Tower safe....
It?s OK if Melania isn't a traditional first lady. But taxpayers shouldn?t pay for her choices.
A little money spent for some more nude pics would be OK.

AND...I don't blame her one bit. I'm betting this was her 'deal' with Donny. Yes, I wll support you. Yes, I will give a campaign speech for you (and that went well, didn't it). Yes, I will look the part. BUT IF YOU WIN, Donny Babe, I won't live at the White House and I won't do your bidding. Something like that....I'm guessing.
Yeah, your guessing. That's how rumors start. I'm guessing, Obimbo, Michael, and Valéry are heavily into a ménage e twa. How's that for guessing?
