Trump has been described as increasingly delusional, which makes the news that Melania Trump has taken over the role of being his central advisor troubling.
Instead, some of his friends have taken to calling Melania Trump and asking her to pass messages to her husband, according to two people familiar with the matter. They say that since she arrived in the White House from New York in the summer, the first lady has taken on a more central role as a political adviser to the president.
“If I don’t want to wait 24 hours for a call from the president, getting to Melania is much easier,” one person said.
The White House responded to the report by calling it fake news.
Since this administration only calls the truth fake news, there is a strong likelihood that the story is true. Donald Trump is so gullible and easily persuaded that those who control access to him, control the president. The reason why Kelly tried to put up barriers to who gets to see Trump is that this president surrounds himself with fringe characters who are anything but “the best people.”
Melania Trump is the gatekeeper to Trump, which means that in many ways she is the one who is running the country. Trump’s decline is increasingly obvious, but what no one counted is the First Lady pulling the strings behind closed doors.
