Melania Trump turned 53 this week. Unfortunately, she was unable to fully enjoy her birthday celebration because of her husband’s rape trial.The ex-FLOTUS reportedly held a “low-key” affair with her family at Mar-a-Lago on Wednesday evening, just one day after the jury was selected for Donald Trump‘s civil rape trial in New York.“Melania likes a low-key celebration with family and that I believe is her plan for this year’s birthday,” a source told People earlier in the week, adding, “Despite what you hear, the Trumps are a close family.”Move over “Fake Melania”, there’s a new conspiracy theory about the ex-FLOTUS currently taking hold of the internet.Another source added, “Don’t be fooled by the former president’s outspoken manner and dominant influence on those around him.
He respects and admires his wife. He wants to make Melania happy. They have a more-than-suitable partners arrangement.”But when his wife’s birthday finally rolled around on Wednesday, Trump forgot to publicly acknowledge it as he has in years past.
Instead, the one-term, twice-impeached, once-indicted ex-president posted 15 times on Truth Social attacking E. Jean Carroll, the woman who has accused him of sexually assaulting her in a Bergdorf Goodman dressing room in the 1990s.It’s Melania’s birthday.
I’m sure he will get around to that when the staff reminds him, and he will have flowers sent over to her chambers. pic.twitter.com/Uk1UYBfuHtIt’s also unclear whether Trump attended his wife’s birthday party, but a source told People earlier in the week that he would be there if his schedule allowed for it.The rape trial is just one of many lawsuits Trump is currently fighting.
