It’s not often that anyone within the Trump administration behaves like a decent human being. However, after her husband exposed a car full of Secret Service agents to what can only be described as a sealed coronavirus bubble because he can’t stand the idea of not getting the attention he’s desperate for, it seems as though his wife Melania may have a shred of a heart for the people that protect her.
During a segment on The Week with Joshua Johnson, guest Deepa Shivaram from NBC News revealed that the First Lady has declined to visit her husband during his time at Walter Reed Medical Center, so as to avoid exposing her Secret Service agents to the virus in the manner that Trump did.
“We just did receive news from NBC’s Peter Alexander putting out a note that the first lady herself… There’s a note saying the reason she hasn’t visited her husband at Walter Reed is because she didn’t want to put those Secret Service agents and driver in harms’ way and expose them to COVID,” they revealed on the segment.
It didn’t take long for them to go on to say what we’re all thinking:

“It’s an interesting contrast of the first lady showing some caution in this process while the president himself, you know, leaving the hospital after being diagnosed with COVID in a car with his Secret Service agents and the driver definitely not social distancing, you know, and putting those folks at risk here, too. He has been positive for the past couple of days now and very well could be contagious and very well could get others sick who he is close with. It’s a little bit of a two-fold situation going on.”
Hopefully, this truly is a result of Melania actually caring about the safety, health, and well-being of those around her.
I’m just saying, I wouldn’t be entirely surprised if a secretly recorded tape of her saying how much she hates him and how glad she is to be rid of him for the time was to hit the waves.
