Here’s what she had to say…
Melania Trump, the ex-first lady and spouse of former President Donald Trump, didn’t find it surprising that her husband had to undergo the process of taking a mug shot, as stated by various sources.
According to the Washington Examiner, insights from a source close to the Trump family explained Melania Trump’s approach to her husband’s legal challenges remains consistent—she deals with them as they arise. This stance persists even in light of Donald Trump’s recent indictment in Fulton County, Georgia, and the subsequent release of his mug shot, marking his first instance of being photographed in this manner despite facing three prior legal cases.
The family insider informed People magazine that Melania is well aware of her husband’s nature, and while she disapproves of the indictments just like him, she wouldn’t be caught off guard by his mug shot or feel compelled to comment on it.
Another individual with knowledge on the matter conveyed that Melania Trump has a myriad of responsibilities demanding her attention aside from monitoring Donald Trump’s activities.
Amidst her commitments to her son and family, she allocates only a certain amount of focus to matters that gain significant media attention. This source from New York elaborated that the criminal charges might be a source of embarrassment for both Melania and Donald, but life goes on, and each person copes with stress differently.
It’s reported that Melania Trump is not particularly perturbed by Donald Trump’s mug shot, viewing it no differently than any other aspect of his legal entanglements. The mug shot’s release follows a sequence of events surrounding Donald Trump’s alleged endeavors to overturn the results of Georgia’s 2020 election, leading to his booking into Fulton County Jail.
Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis indicted Donald Trump and 18 others as co-defendants. The arraignment for all 19 individuals is scheduled for September 6, with Donald Trump’s session commencing at 9:30 a.m. Subsequent arraignments, including that of former Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani, are set to follow in 15-minute intervals.
Meanwhile, former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows and his legal team engaged in lengthy deliberations on transferring his case from state to federal court before a federal judge. U.S. District Judge Steve Jones assured a prompt decision on this matter.
Stephanie Grisham, who previously served as Melania Trump’s chief of staff, testified in September 2022 about the former first lady’s lack of trust in Meadows. Melania Trump also harbored reservations about Giuliani, as well as attorneys Sidney Powell and Jenna Ellis, who had interactions with Donald Trump during the 2020 election.
