Google Trends is reporting quite the spike in a search term surrounding First Lady Melania Trump in the wake of a Secret Squirrel-like trip to Trump Tower. As Google has reported over the past five years, the search term “Melania Trump affair” didn’t receive much traction at all from 2012 to 2015 or so. By 2016, folks searching for Melania information and coupling the word “affair” with her name became a blip on the radar. However, in the past seven days, Google reports that people seeking information about “Melania Trump affair Tiffany” have risen 650 percent.
Even Twitter reports a surge in the terms “Melania Tiffany” and “Melania NYC,” as suggested by the social media network’s search engine when one types “Melania” therein. The searches for rumors of an alleged Melania affair coupled with the Tiffany term began when novelist Monica Byrne claimed that Melania was having an affair with the head of security at Tiffany & Co., and Monica posted a photo of Henry “Hank” Siemers to her Twitter feed, as reported by the Inquisitr. The Inquisitr reached out to confirm or deny the affair rumors via Melania’s spokesperson but did not receive an answer about Byrne’s allegations about Siemers and Melania.
The most recent photos, as of this writing, in Getty Images and the Associated Press photo galleries show Melania at the White House when Mrs. Trump and President Trump greeted Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday, June 26, 2017. However, an exclusive Daily Mail report shows that Melania visited Trump Tower on Wednesday, without Barron, only a short time after relocating to the White House with her son. In the wake of the mysterious and surprise trip to Trump Tower around 2 p.m., with Melania hidden behind sunglasses in an SUV, donning a cashmere coat in 80-degree heat, the rise in searches for “Melania Trump affair” and “Melania Tiffany” began once again.
Why Did Searches Of “Melania Trump Affair” Rise 1,050 Percent Post Secret Trump NYC Trip – And Why Did ‘Tiffany’ Searches Go Up By 650 Percent?
Although some of the people searching for “Melania Tiffany” are indeed searching for information about Melania and Tiffany Trump, a search of Twitter tweets about “Melania Tiffany” prove that plenty of other folks are posting speculation about Siemers as the head of Tiffany & Co. security, and any relationship to Melania, instead of news about Tiffany Trump.
