Melania Trump Is Trolling Donald on Twitter and It’s Awesome

I am not one of those people who feel sorry for Melania Trump. She knew who she was dealing with when she decided to marry the walking embodiment of a clogged artery. But I am one of those people who take delight in watching this marriage crumble. She clearly hates this man, and watching them together is torturous. She’s the first lady who doesn’t like to hold her husband’s hand, and she knows she’s being televised.


Who can forget this:

So Wednesday night, Jimmy Kimmel uncovered something that no one else has caught: that Melania’s official @FLOTUS account follows a mere five people—and you won’t believe who is among them: former President Barack Obama.


This is world-class, grade-A presidential trolling, and I’m here for it.

This, of course, would be a nonissue under a normal presidency, but since Donald Trump has made his entire time in office about undoing Obama’s legacy, Melania’s choice feels important.

Her personal account follows 55 people, and the former president is not one of them, but we know exactly what you are doing, Melania, and we like it.
