There’s only one explanation for the fact that Donald Trump continues to ditch his wife Melania — on tarmacs, at churches, getting off Air Force One in the rain when he’s the one holding the umbrella — after he’s been completely excoriated for doing so by social media and cable news outlets alike:
He. Doesn’t. Give. A. Shit.
In fact, I’m fairly certain that’s his mantra when it comes to anyone ever telling him anything he’s ever done was wrong.
How else could you explain the fact that even though the world has footage of him ditching Melania at Billy Graham’s funeral, leaving her AND his young son to fend for themselves during a storm as he boarded his official plane carrying the only umbrella, and even leaving her behind on New Year’s Eve entirely, he still went out in public — on the world stage, in fact — and did this today?

See that beginning part there? That’s the part where a gentleman goes around the car and opens the door for his wife, like the world saw Barack Obama do roughly a thousand times — and every other world leader. But then, Trump was already clearly unconcerned with what anyone thought of him, arriving well after every other leader and their spouses had arrived for the dinner gathering in Biarritz, France.
Macron and his wife Brigitte stand shoulder to shoulder, each greeting the President and First Lady as they arrive — while Trump scarcely seems to register the moment that Melania has finally caught up to him to greet them in return.
It’s a familiar sight, and I’m sure it won’t be the last time. That’s because the very motif of Donald Trump’s life is that of a man unconcerned with anyone or anything but himself.
