Joe Rogan expresses a strong admiration for former first lady Melania Trump, characterizing her as the “hottest first lady of all time.” The sentiment arose in response to an article that speculates on her purported lack of interest in Trump’s ongoing legal difficulties.
In a recent installment of Rogan’s podcast on Spotify, he came to Melania’s defense following the publication of an article by Vanity Fair. The article aimed to provide an overview of Melania’s sentiments towards Trump’s four criminal indictments and the subsequent trials he is confronting as he embarks on another campaign for president.
According to the story, “Melania’s Take on Donald Trump’s Fourth Indictment Is Basically ‘Sucks to Be You, Pal’: Report.”
Rogan said that he had not perused the aforementioned article, whereby the publication cited an informant who provided statements to People Magazine. The source alleged that Melania independently pursues her own personal endeavors, and in light of the substantial legal charges amounting to 91 felonies faced by Trump, her disposition can be characterized as one of indifference or detachment, conveying a sentiment akin to “Sucks to be you, pal.”
“You don’t even have an interview with her … This is just a narrative you want to promote,” … Rogan said as he engaged in a conversation with stand-up comic Dave Smith. “Are you sure that’s the take? How can you openly say that? Did you get a source? You know for sure that’s how she feels? … Maybe she said it for funsies,” Rogan questioned.
Based on the report by People, “Melania publicly supports her husband but privately prefers a life with 100% privacy and no press scrutiny.”
Last month, Trump and 18 individuals associated with him were formally charged in the state of Georgia for their alleged endeavors to invalidate the outcome of the 2020 presidential election. The Democrat prosecutors have lodged allegations against Trump, asserting that he orchestrated a “criminal enterprise” with the intention of maintaining his position of presidential authority.
According to the source cited by People Magazine, Melania seems unaffected by her husband’s increasing legal troubles.
“This fourth indictment is another problem for her husband. Not for her,” according to the source. “She knows how her husband is but still believes there has been too much dumping on him and wants nothing to do with any of it. She hates all of the legal problems and says very little about them anytime anywhere. She leads her own life.”
“Maybe that’s right, but what a weird thing to write about,” Smith told Rogan. “Can you imagine writing a story about how your wife feels about something you did?”
Rogan and Smith subsequently hypothesized that Melania exhibits limited enthusiasm towards the prospect of resuming her role in the White House, as Trump embarks on another presidential campaign for 2024.
Rogan expressed uncertainty over her enjoyment of the situation, thereafter characterizing her as “without a doubt, the hottest first lady of all time.”
Smith responded by stating that “[John F.] Kennedy’s wife was a good looking chick,” a sentiment that Rogan concurred with.
Rogan noted “She was a very beautiful woman, but this lady is hot, she is hot, professionally.”
Following her appearance beside Trump during his official announcement of his candidacy last autumn, Melania has chosen to maintain a limited public presence, abstaining from accompanying her husband on his campaign tours.
Publicly, she refrained from commenting on his fresh endeavor until May, wherein she pledged her support for his comeback to the White House during an appearance with Fox News.
“He has my support, and we look forward to restoring hope for the future and leading America with love and strength,” Melania declared.
Kellyanne Conway, former Senior Counselor to Trump said “I know few people as comfortable in their skin as Melania Trump,” in an interview with the New York Times, conducted last month. “She knows who she is and keeps her priorities in check. Melania keeps them guessing, and they keep guessing wrong.”
Liberals are spreading misinformation about Melania in major publications.
In August, Newsweek actually did a fact-check, calling out one falsehood that Melania had left her husband.
“A post on X, formerly Twitter, by @PopularLiberal, on August 11, 2023, viewed more than 770,000 times, said: “It appears that leaked emails have revealed Melania Trump’s apparent threats of divorce towards Donald Trump, along with her inquiries about his pension and the terms she would be entitled to in a $2 billion divorce settlement,” the article reported.
The tweet also includes a video that repeats these lines and adds: “Apparently, as I said, she’s left him. It’s over.”
This allegation appears to be based on a misquote of a gossip article, which itself is based on unverified and anonymous quotes
The social posts are a near-verbatim copy of an article published by gossip site Radar on August 8, 2023.
However, that article does not say that emails have leaked and bases its claims entirely on unnamed sources.
It states how a number of “insiders” claim Melania Trump was anxious about the possibility that her personal emails could be leaked in a subpoena.
Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg recently attempted to subpoena her messages as part of the indictment against Trump over alleged hush money payments to adult film star Stormy Daniels. The request was quashed by Judge Juan Merchan for being too broad, reported CBS News.
One anonymous source told Radar that Melania Trump had “likely written multiple emails to counsel asking for guidance on her rights if her husband is convicted on all these charges and if she should use whatever she knows to squeeze him in divorce court.”
Another source was quoted as saying “blistering email exchanges between the first lady and the president focused on his seeming betrayal, her lack of trust and her desire to pursue a divorce.” And another reportedly added: “If these emails were to go public, it would rip the Band-Aid off Donald and Melania’s marriage, and almost certainly drive her into divorce court!”
None of these anonymous quotes were verified with further evidence. Radar, unlike the posts on X, does not say that the emails have been leaked or have revealed details of a divorce settlement.
Although the headline of the article may suggest the emails have already been revealed, the copy shows no such messages have been published yet.
Crucially, outside of the story and social media speculation, there is no verifiable evidence, such as court filings, that shows the couple is getting or planning to get divorced.
While we cannot rule out behind-the-scenes discussions, there is simply no concrete proof that the pair are splitting, as is speculated online.
The left is lying, as they are known to do.
