The fallout from the President’s highly publicized and highly embarrassing infidelity scandals continues to rain down upon Donald Trump, the consequences of years of shameless philandering coming back to haunt him bigly.
This morning’s stunning admission by former Playboy Playmate of the Year Karen McDougal that she and the President had had a nine-month affair shortly after his wife Melania had given birth to their child Barron had a very obvious effect on the First Couple’s relationship, seeing as she refused to ride with him to Air Force One for their weekend trip to Mar-a-Lago.

Melania Trump took a separate motorcade from her husband to board Air Force One, rather than taking the helicopter ride with POTUS to Andrews. Her spox tells @KateBennett_DC that it was just a "schedule" issue and "easier" to meet Trump at the plane rather than travel with him.

Press was invited to get on Air Force One, then rushed off and hurried back inside as Melania Trump's motorcade pulled up. Some screaming from a White House press aide. No pictures allowed of first lady's arrival.

Her refusal to be in the same vehicle as the president is an understandable sentiment, especially considering the salacious nature of the revelations today. The nine-month affair was ended by McDougal after she began to “feel guilty” for enabling Trump’s neglect of his wife and child – and also for these reprehensible remarks, according to the New Yorker.
Another factor in the alleged relationship ending, according to the report, was that Trump said a friend of hers liked “the big black dick” when a relationship with an African-American man was brought up in conversation.
Trump is said to have made the comment, which offended both women, while McDougal and her friend rode in his limousine to a Miss Universe pageant. Trump reportedly also discussed how attractive McDougal’s friend was and the size of her breasts.
The President’s public humiliation by his own wife is the least of the repercussions he deserves for his constant cheating and for assaulting and harassing at least twenty women over the years.
