Eyebrows Raised Over Melania Trump’s Unexpected Attitude On Her Husband’s Birthday


Former President Donald Trump celebrated his 78th birthday amidst a chorus of well-wishes from family, friends, and political allies. According to a report by AlterNet on Saturday, June 15, 2024, what caught the attention of many was the absence of birthday greetings from his wife, Melania Trump.

As the only member of the Trump family who did not publicly acknowledge his birthday on social media, Melania’s silence spoke volumes. On Friday, numerous messages flooded in from Trump’s adult children and prominent Republicans, all marking the occasion with heartfelt posts.

Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump, Ivanka Trump, and even Tiffany Trump shared memories and expressions of love for their father. Tiffany, known for her quieter demeanor, posted a touching Instagram story featuring a photo of her and her father dancing at her wedding, captioned “Happy birthday @realDonaldTrump! I love you, Dad!”

In contrast, Melania’s official Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts remained noticeably silent throughout the day. Her last posts are from Memorial Day, in which she posted a photo of the American flag with the text “Today, we pay tribute to the brave souls who sacrificed their lives for our freedom.

Their selfless acts of courage will forever be remembered and honored.” This silence persisted despite the significant milestone of her husband’s birthday. Observers noted that Melania’s absence extended beyond social media gestures. She was notably absent during her husband’s recent legal troubles, including his conviction on 34 felony counts related to a hush-money cover-up.

While Trump’s legal team cited her commitments to their son Barron, who was completing his senior year of high school, critics and former aides suggested deeper undercurrents. Stephanie Grisham, former chief of staff to Melania Trump, hinted at the possibility that birthdays were not significant to the couple in their personal lives, contrasting with the performative nature of their public displays.

“[Melania] and I talked before about how they actually weren’t really birthday people, that that wasn’t actually a big deal to either of them… and so that was a performance for voters. That was not to her. Same with this video,” Grisham said at the time. “That is a performance to try and get voters.”

Grisham’s comments shed light on the complexities within the Trump marriage, exacerbated by the recent legal turmoil. The convictions Trump faced were tied to efforts to conceal alleged extramarital affairs, including payments to adult film star Stormy Daniels. Daniels testified about receiving $130,000 to keep quiet about her interactions with Trump, which reportedly occurred during Melania’s post-pregnancy recovery at their Mar-a-Lago estate.

The absence of a birthday message from Melania underscored ongoing speculation about the state of the Trump marriage. While Trump’s supporters and allies rallied around him, Melania’s choice not to participate in the public display of affection raised questions about their relationship dynamics.

Todd Blanche, Trump’s attorney, downplayed concerns, suggesting that physical absence did not equate to lack of support or affection. “I don’t think that the lack of presence should be interpreted as a lack of love and support. It’s just lack of presence,” Blanche said on a podcast.
