Reportedly since leaving Washington and moving into the Palm Beach resort Mar-a-Lago, Melania Trump has been extremely “bitter and chilly” toward Donald because she is still upset about the way that they left Washington.
When the Trump’s left Washington in the wee hours of January 20, Melania Trump was exceptionally unpopular. The fact that she and her husband skipped out on outgoing traditions such as attending President Joe Biden’s inauguration did not help their popularity any.
When Melania boarded Marine One and departed the White House for the final time, she had the worst favorability rating of any modern-day first lady.
Melania is reportedly extremely upset that her reputation has been “tarnished” by her husband’s relentless campaign of false voter fraud claims and the deadly insurrection that those lies caused.
After the deadly riot at the Capitol that resulted in five deaths, Melania was left unsure on how to respond.
She felt trapped and caught between a rock and a hard place having to decide whether to speak out and condemn the deadly violence or remain silent.
She also knew if she remained quiet, she could anger her husband’s base, yet if she remained silent it could point to complicity.
“She could see how it was going to be for her,” a former White House official told CNN. “Once the insurrection happened, she knew there was nothing to gain by her speaking out or doing something — so she didn’t do anything.”
Five days passed before Melania released a statement about the insurrection in which she expressed sympathy for those that had been injured or killed.
Soon after her statement several of her key aides announced their resignations.
Melania’s bitterness extends beyond her husband. She is also said to be overly bitter about the warm reception that new first lady Dr. Jill Biden has received.
The positive media that Biden has received has Melania bitter and angry.
Melania did not reach out to Biden while she was in the White House nor has, she reached out to her since departing breaking a long-standing first lady tradition of reaching out to their successors.
“She goes to the spa, has lunch, goes to the spa (again), at times she does eat dinner with her husband or with her parents who also reside at the spa.
Melania is said to have no interest in the ongoing impeachment trial or politics in general. However, she is said to be “bitter and Chilly” about the way that they exited the White House as Trump continued to falsely claim the election was stolen from him. She feels his claims have irreparably damaged her reputation.
Melania has also expressed dismay and bitterness at the favorable treatment being given to Dr. Jill Biden. She is especially bitter over the multiple interviews and magazine covers that Biden has been offered.

“Trump’s most fervent ire has come from watching Jill Biden kick off her East Wing tenure on nearly the antithesis of the path Trump took. Biden moved into the White House right away, for starters, and had staff hired and fleshed out within two weeks of the inauguration. Trump, meanwhile, remained in New York for the first five months of the administration, ostensibly to let son Barron finish up the school year; she never had more than 12 people on her White House staff, at times there were as few as seven,” CNN reported.
According to Melania’s former best friend and advisor, Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, Melania never showed any real interest in speaking to the media.
