Last night, a self-proclaimed “aggressive voice for Democrats”, by name pundit Andy Ostroy tweeted about something snarky about Donald and Melania Trump’s relationship, on the well-worn theme of how she not-so-secretly hates him, and the first lady’s personal Twitter account liked the tweet. Melania doesn’t normally like tweets, as a matter of fact, this is the first tweet she is liking since 2012. The tweet itself may not have been surprising, but the response to it was and it has received over 600 likes, but only one of them was from the First Lady herself with her verified personal Twitter account @MELANIATRUMP, which she has not otherwise used since the election.
“Seems the only #Wall @realDonaldTrump’s built is the one between him and @FLOTUS #Melania #trump,” Andy Ostroy tweeted, along with a GIF of the 47-year-old FLOTUS standing behind her husband on Inauguration Day on Jan. 20. In the GIF, Melania smiles at Donald and as he turns around immediately begins to scowl.
The clip from that particular moment of the inauguration went viral, and it seems Melania either thinks Andy’s tweet was hilarious, or an accurate assessment of her possibly terrible marriage to Donald. Everyone is shocked that she liked a tweet that openly bashed her hubby, President Donald Trump, 70. Twitter users, including Andy, immediately started to speculate as to whether Melania was hacked or not and, if not, what could have possessed the first lady to favorite a tweet that would clearly cause so much drama. “I suspect this isn’t a real account for @flotus…,” Andy tweeted.
The like soon disappeared but many Twitter users had already grabbed screenshots of the evidence, which obviously will not be forgotten any time soon.
The @MELANIATRUMP account, which the former model has had since 2010, is different than the official @FLOTUS account that former first lady Michelle Obama passed on to Melania after her husband was sworn in as the new president. The weirdest thing about all this is that Melania’s personal account has only ever liked one other tweet — her own. The model favorited her, “Hello Twitter!,” message back in 2012.
What are your thoughts on this? Was she trying to show that she can take a joke? Or do you think she has been hacked? Let us know.
