Nice of the media to pay so much attention to supposed presidential scandals now Obama is clear of the White House. Today, the story in media is Melania crashing with her parents in the burbs. Getting far away from the White House and a husband who porked a porn star years ago. In a “scandal” the media is desperately trying to make a thing. Naturally, the White House press corps, many of whom identify as teen girls gossiping in the bathroom, inquired about Melania’s room and board status in La Casa Blanca. Here’s how Sarah Huckabee Sanders responded:
.@PressSec on "persistent rumors" of Melania Trump living in suburbs: "The first lady lives here at the White House. We see her regularly. And I think that's something that belongs in tabloid gossip, not on the front pages of the Washington Post." https://t.co/Yt10Malkf4 pic.twitter.com/G6PDVF8yrf

Reporter who wanted to do narration for some kind of murder show on A&E: “We keep hearing persistent rumors Mrs. Trump does not live in the White House. What do you make of these rumors?”
Sarah Huckabee Sanders: “Just when you think Washington Post can’t get anything else more wrong, they do.”
I’ll bite. If Melania wasn’t living at the White House, I’d think there would be more than just rumors. This media hates Trump. They’re looking for all the proof they can of anything negative to report. If his wife had so much as given him side eye, we’d have proof. If Melania had packed her Louis Vuittons and headed to mom and pops, I’d guess we’d at least have photos of Melania shopping at Whole Foods for gluten-free granola.
“IS MELANIA LEAVING TRUMP?!” is a fair headline for the National Enquirer, US Weekly, People, or any other smutty rag vying for my attention in the checkout line for a store who refuses to implement self-checkout. But I have to agree with Sarah, hardly a story for a newspaper which still thinks of itself as serious news.
I guess this line of questioning means media is still on this Stormy Daniels, Trump is a cad “scandal” for the second week of May. I can hardly contain my enthusiasm.
