Donald Trump just can’t help but ruin everything for his wife, Melania. Trump has successfully humiliated the First Lady every chance he could get with his exposed affairs and sex scandals, and has even belittled her publicly. On Mother’s Day, the president didn’t miss a beat and very noticeably left her out of his special Mother’s Day message.
In a video on Twitter, Trump paid tribute to his mother, Mary MacLeod, who passed in 2000. After wishing America’s mothers a “Happy Mother’s Day”, Trump spoke specifically about his own mother. He said:
So much of what I’ve done and so much of what I’ve become is because of my mother. She was just incredible. warm, loving, really smart, could be tough if she had to be, but basically she was a really nice person.”
While it was, for the most part, a touching sentiment, Trump left out one very important person in his message – his own wife! Trump didn’t even mention First Lady Melania, who is the mother to their son, 12-year-old Barron! Watch Trump totally exclude her below:

As of this afternoon, Trump still hasn’t made a public statement wishing Melania a good Mother’s Day. Let’s just say that Twitter noticed and was pretty brutal:
Unfortunately, it gets even worse for Melania. Not only did Trump publicly shun her from his Mother’s Day message, but he isn’t even celebrating with her today. The White House press pool has reported that Trump is playing golf today at the Trump National Golf Course in Sterling, Virginia, having arrived at the course at 10:45 am.
Melania must be absolutely fuming over this. Perhaps Trump can make it up to her with some Trump-themed Mother’s Day gifts, as Stephen Colbert suggested?
(Sigh). Just as a refresher, here’s how a real leader behaves on Mother’s Day:
