I have been reading and hearing about presidential candidate Donald Trump’s questionable escapades, especially regarding the women who have come and gone in his career and personal life.
The man is so distasteful that I, as a politics and news freak, turn off the TV every time his image appears. However, the latest episode of this Trump telenovela has touched me in an unexpected manner. Imagine the humiliation that Trump’s wife, Melania, must feel as reports and testimonials appear in the press about his sexual trysts.
The disrespect that he has demonstrated towards his female employees and his “dates,” bragging about his sexual prowess, must certainly create a sense of shame and self-doubt for his wife.
I don’t know much about Melania Trump, but she is a woman, a wife and a mother, and I imagine that she must feel embarrassed and wounded by her husband’s philandering behavior. Money and social position can never make up for such inexcusable comportment.
