Trump under pressure from Melania to fire top aide

How do you expect to be taken seriously when you make an idiotic claim of an extramarital fling between Ricardel and Trump?  Look at her. Sheesh.

Trump has a certain type.

 

I was being a bit facetious, but let's be real, Trump's type is probably no longer accessible, I mean other than Ivanka. Gone are the days of the $130,000 short-time with the porn star, or jetting off to Moscow for a "Shower". He has to take what he can, when he can. I'd imagine most women would rather be intimate with Jabba the Hutt though.

The problem with this story that leaves me shaking my head is I am sure she had absolutely nothing to do with the planning and booking of the trip. I would expect that she says she wants to go to Africa to see this. this, and that. From there staff do what staff do in regards to planning and booking. 

 

This, of course, makes sense, but then begs the questions:

 

why try to hide it when surfaced?

why obfuscate when confronted?

why offer multiple explanations?

why get so angry when having to explain a "reasonable" expense?

I just wonder if she expressed her displeasure in English 😱

She'd have to; probably through a translator; remember his press conference, he can't hardly understand even accented English

Trump Repeatedly Claims Not to Understand Certain Accents

So maybe, just maybe Melania was actually saying, "No!...NO!!" to Donald all those years ago?

I would think there's a lot more to this story than is being reported. If anyone remembers "Travelgate" you'll know the White House has a travel office which is responsible for making travel arrangements. I doubt the Bolton aide works for the travel office, so there's probably something missing from this story.

From the original post/article...

 

One source said that Melania Trump felt that Ricardel tried to short-change the first lady when it came to government resources allocated to support her Africa tour.

 

But clearly, there is a lot yet to be understood about why the first lady is firing a deputy national security aide.

 

And maybe it's time for her promised press conference explaining her "path to citizenship"?

 

 

Trump promises press conference on Melania's immigration story

 

"She has got it so documented," Trump said, adding she will hold a news conference over the next few weeks to address the issue.

Yes, I read that. Didn't seem particularly illuminating.

$95,050 to the Semiramis Intercontinental Cairo hotel for the first lady’s visit — but according to her spokesperson, she didn’t even stay the night!

Hotel room?  Maybe she thought she was buying a condo.

"You see, now I am real estate mogul too!"

 

Kind of funny that Ricardel bears a resemblance to a sometimes-member of the entourage on the show Veep.

The only good aspect of this is the firing of one of Bolton's lackeys, this war-hungry man needs to be contained.

I know i'm beating a dead horse but imagine Mrs Obama had done this ...
