‘Huffington Post’ Essay About Melania Trump Alleges Emotional Abuse, Gets 49,000 Facebook Likes [Video]

First Lady Melania Trump is back in the news on Friday, January 27, with certain portions the public continuing to express their concern over the activities that cameras caught one week ago today during President Donald Trump’s inauguration. As reported by the Inquisitr, over the course of the long day and night, photos and videos caught interactions between Mr. and Mrs. Trump that resulted in people on social media embarking upon the hashtag #FreeMelania and body language experts examining Melania’s every move as she related to her husband, as seen in the photos and videos below.

That hubbub hasn’t died down seven days after the inauguration of President Trump. Instead, the jokes and GIFs and quips about Mrs. Trump’s reaction have turned into serious questions being asked about Melania’s state of being. One opinion article, simply titled “Melania, Are You Okay?” is going viral. Published by Huffington Post writer Alaura Weaver, whose bio says Alaura is a “Copywriter & content strategist, WordWeaver Freelance,” the article has been liked 49,000 times since being published on January 24.

According to Trendolizer, the Huffington Post piece about Melania has surged in popularity over the past 24 hours or so with the article about Mrs. Trump surging from 13,000 Facebook likes just before midnight on Wednesday, January 25, to 49,000 Facebook likes just before noon on Friday, January 27. The likely reasons that Weaver’s essay about Melania is swelling to such buzzworthy heights in the realm of social media is because Alaura points to her own experiences as a child who watched her own father emotionally abuse her mother as the lens through which she views Mr. and Mrs. Trump’s marriage. Whereas Weaver admits she might be interpreting the whole relationship between Melania and Mr. Trump all wrong, she couldn’t help but point to some of the troublesome differences and videos that are appearing in memes and GIFs around the net showing Melania frowning, or the following video, showing the youngest Trump snatching his hand away from Mrs. Trump’s hand.

Weaver didn’t view the action via the same paradigm as other writers who are crafting headlines like the above one on the YouTube video, which called the action the result of “mum” being embarrassing.

Obviously, Weaver’s piece is striking a chord with readers who keep sharing the essay online.

Meanwhile, Melania isn’t just making news because of the #FreeMelania efforts around the world wide web.

Mrs. Trump is also making news for appearing on the cover of Mexico’s Vanity Fair, as reported by The Hill. The publication dubbed Mrs. Trump as the new Jackie Kennedy and did not interview Melania for the article, nor did they use a new photo. Instead, the cover photo was used from a previous shoot that Melania did for GQ.

As seen in the following photo, Mrs. Trump sported her diamond ring as Melania arrived at the 57th Annual Emmy Awards held at the Shrine Auditorium on September 18, 2005, in Los Angeles, California. Such opulence has caused some articles, such as one by The Independent titled “Spare me the calls to ‘free Melania’ – she knew what she was getting into when she married the tangerine tyrant,” to also gain views with that writer claiming that the #FreeMelania movement is fruitless.

As seen in the top photo above, President Trump and First Lady Melania danced at the “A Salute To Our Armed Services Inaugural Ball” on Friday, January 20. The Trumps were in Washington, D.C., at the National Building Museum when the photographer caught President Trump smiling and speaking as Mrs. Trump appeared to be looking down at her dress or some other object the day Mr. Trump was sworn in as the 45th President of the U.S.
