There's a lot to unpack here.

Donald Trump’s youngest son, the only one he shares with his third and current wife Melania, finally graduated high school late last week and, after a long, drawn out, and exceedingly dramatic battle between himself and the courts in his infamous Manhattan Hush Money trial, the scandal-plagued former president was permitted to attend the ceremony in all his glory.

How Donald’s wife Melania feels about his appearance at her only child’s high school graduation is truly anyone’s guess, but folks on social media have quite a few guesses of their own — based on the former first lady’s hat choice.

We caught several glimpses into Barron Trump’s big day via multiple photos and videos that quickly made their way to social media and spread like wildfire.

Among those clips and photos were several of Barron’s former First Couple parents, as well as Melania’s recently widowed father, Viktor Knavs, watching from the bleachers as the teen graduated from Oxford Academy in West Palm Beach, Florida, where the family has made their new post-White House home.

In those photos, Melania is seen wearing a black-rimmed straw hat that caught the attention of many social media users as it seems to highlight the former first lady’s apparently foul mood on her son’s graduation day — as she was seen scowling, staring rigidly forward with a stern, emotionless face hidden behind the shadow of her domineering hat as her husband leaned over to chat with her father.

Melania’s husband is, of course, infamously on trial in Manhattan as we speak on 34 felony counts of falsifying business records in connection to hush money payments made to adult film star Stormy Daniels, whom he allegedly had an extramarital affair with in 2006, just one year after he married Melania. District Attorney Alvin Bragg alleges that Trump made a $130,000 payment to Daniels via his then-personal attorney and “fixer” Michael Cohen with the intention of buying Daniels’ silence about their alleged affair to protect his 2016 presidential campaign, and then falsified numerous business records to cover that payment up.

Throughout the course of this trial, we have heard bombshell, sworn testimony from multiple sources, including both Cohen and Daniels, with multiple references made to former Playboy model Karen McDougal, who also claims to have had an extensive sexual affair with Donald Trump just mere weeks after Melania had given birth to their only child together.

Suffice it to say, Melania has a hell of a lot to be angry and bitter about right now, and, based on the photos and videos that have come out of Barron’s graduation, it’s showing:
