Democrats and DeSantis backers alike pounced over the Christmas period, attacking the Trump family over a Christmas picture posted to Instagram (and subsequently X.com). “Where’s Melania?” hundreds of mostly anonymized internet accounts shrieked, many of which contained “#DumpTrump” or “#DeSantis2024” markings in their biographies.
The picture, which also omitted Eric and Lara Trump, as well as a number of other family members, served as poor spirited fodder for those with nothing better to do over the Christmas period besides throw shade on Donald and Melania Trump.
Now, it has emerged that the former First Lady was, in fact, taking care of her ailing mother in hospital, with family friend telling Page Six and Fox News that Amalija Knavs, Melania’s mother, has been very sick in hospital. The former First Lady was reportedly by her side over Christmastide.
“Melania has always been very devoted to her entire family,” a source close to Melania told Fox News Digital. “It should be no surprise that she spent this Christmas with her ailing mother.”
There have so far been no known apologies from the puerile and unthinking social media assailants, despite many of them whining when Jill “Casey” DeSantis and/or Hillary Clinton find themselves in the crosshairs for their active political campaigning and media interviews.
