As the prospect of Donald Trump becoming the Republican nomination for president becomes more likely, so does the possibility that he’ll slaughter Hillary Clinton in the general election, which means we’ll have the incredibly classy Melania Trump for a First Lady. In a recent interview, she revealed what that will be like, and it’s safe to say it’ll be a welcome change from what we have now.
After nearly eight years, America has grown tired of the hypocrisy and race-baiting coming from both Barack and Michelle Obama, so it’s going to be a giant relief when they’re finally gone, especially if the Trumps take over the White House. While Michelle has made it a point to interfere in the lives of children and adults alike, Melania says she’s going to be the exact opposite, she revealed in an interview with GQ.
In fact, when specifically asked about the role she would play in a Trump administration, she said she would be more of a “traditional” First Lady, something similar to Laura Bush or Jackie Kennedy. Speaking with the reporter, she said that she “chose not to go into politics or policy,” and she firmly believes that “those policies are my husband’s job.”
She also delved into her relationship with her husband, but refused to actually say what type of political advice she gives him.
“Nobody knows and nobody will ever know,” she said. “Because that’s between me and my husband.”
However, while she may not be a big fan of injecting herself into policy issues, she is involved with numerous other causes that help our nation.
She said she’s involved with “many, many charities,” including, “Many different charities involving children, involving many different diseases.”
Melania was also asked about the now-infamous photo of her husband with Bill and Hillary Clinton at their wedding.
“It was completely different than it is now,” she said. “When they went to our wedding, we were private citizens.”
“This is it, what it is,” she explained about Hillary and Trump now being mortal enemies. “It’s all business now; it’s nothing personal.”
Ultimately, we’re not voting for the First Lady this November, but then again, after the last eight years it’s not a bad idea to consider their outlook on what they believe their role to be. After all, the last thing we need is another First Lady (or spouse in Bill’s case) that thinks it’s her job to dictate children’s diets, influence her husband’s policy, and otherwise inject herself into public discussions just to start trouble.
Melania seems to be just the opposite of that, which is something most people can probably get behind.
