Skip to comments.Historian: Trump Marriage Is Most 'Awkward' Presidential Union in Modern Times (hurl alert!)
Posted on 05/12/2018 10:51:04 AM PDT by ethom
Prominent presidential historian Douglas Brinkley doesnt think Donald and Melania Trumps marriage is hinged right.
In modern times, we havent had such an awkward marriage one that seems to be frozen. It doesnt seem to be a very organic thing, Brinkley, a professor of history at Rice University and CNNs presidential historian, tells PEOPLE.
The first couples public image has been defined by viral video of Melania, 48, swatting away her husbands hand when hes tried to hold hers.
That scene of the hand swat, says Brinkley, is a visual metaphor for a marriage that isnt hinged right.
Its quite a departure from the many loving images of Michelle and Barack Obama, and of a doting George and Laura Bush during their tenures in the White House. But those husbands didnt have a porn star and a Playboy model alleging affairs, or 19 women accusing him of sexual misconduct.
Its almost painful to watch the president and first lady together they seem uncomfortable in the same photo frame, Brinkley says. Theres not a lot of warmth that is being exuded.
Most likely, the viral news stories about Trumps womanizing all gets through to the first lady, Brinkley says. She knows this is happening.

Michelle is a transsexual. But carry on.
But JFK and Bubba Clinton shtuppin’ everything in sight...those were great marriages.
Hussein and Michael.
and Bobby Kennedy and JFK both slept with Marilyn Monroe!
Good thing Hellary stood by her man.
A real historian would never make such a remark, however a political hack posing as a historian would.
the liberals have truly run out of ammo this time
Will there ever be a marriage made in heaven like KANKLES and the HORNY TOAD.
Bubba getting clocked with a thrown ashtray and the security team having to duck into closets was certainly not awkward.
And Hillary threw lamps, called him names I can’t repeat, etc - but they were/are good at faking it for the cameras.
nothing can EVER live up to ol big butt wookie and her gay muslim boyfriend!
We don’t know that for sure. Dick
Nixon and wife had strange relationship.
I don’t think you can judge things by a marital relationship.
Impeach! Impeach! < /s>
Hoover knew that the Kennedy brothers were sharing MM, and was disgusted by it. Not to mention the two secretaries in the white house office pool that JFK would
relax with in the downstaris pool while Jackie was gone...
Brinkley isn’t getting the whole picture due to his spinchter blocking his vision.
Bess and Harry Truman
Proof Brinkley is more partisan hack their historian.
Ah ... Hoover isn’t really a good source.
I can name seemingly “good
“presidential marriages on one hand.
Seems like only yesterday the MSM-Democrats were telling us that the President’s marriage and what goes on between the President and his spouse were none of our business.
Like dead people in The Sixth Sense, liberals just see what they want to see.
