Trouble In Paradise: Tense PDA Moment Between Donald And Melania Trump Caught On Camera

Date January 15, 2020 15:42

There have been some awkward moments between Donald and Melania Trump in the past. But this particular one has people more than a little curious?

At a football game

President Donald Trump and his first lady, Melania, were both dressed to the nines as they attended the College Football Playoff National Championship Game on January 13.

Melania and her husband walked onto the field amid cheers from fans then sang the National Anthem to kickstart the LSU-Clemson football game at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

The couple looked quite sweet together as they held hands during the National Anthem. However, all was not as it seemed.

Awkward hand-holding moment

As they walked hand-in-hand on the field, Donald and Melania appeared to be the perfect, devoted couple. However, one video showed a particularly tense moment between them.

The details are a little blurry but what seemed pretty clear was that the couple sharply stopped holding hands out of nowhere.

The video quickly went viral and as expected, social media users had a lot to say.

Mixed reactions

One of the first possibilities that occured to fans was that Melania, who has a little bit of reputation for pulling her hand out of her husband's or shoving it away completely, did the same in this video.

Check out this similar moment of her doing just that here:

As it turns out, there's also another probable reason for this awkward moment. Some people opined that it was actually the president who pulled his arm away from his wife and initiated the hand-separation.

What Melania has said about her marriage

There have been so many reports, rumors, and even whole books written based on the idea that the President and First Lady don't have the happiest of marriages.

The couple has addressed this belief a few times. Here are some of the things Melania has said about her marriage.

  • She once told Parenting that she and Donald have a "great relationship," but they are both independent people who often take time to do their own thing.
  • She also told Harper's Bazaar that one of the things her husband likes about her is the fact that she's her own person.
  • Melania told ET in 2013 that her husband is a romantic man but "it's a different romance" than what most may be used to.

We have to give it to this couple. Despite the constant criticism of their marriage and negative reports about them as a couple, they still put up a united front. After almost 15 years of marriage, these two must have had their ups and downs. Their awkward PDAs may simply be reflections of the regular marital squabbles many couples experience.

No marriage is perfect and we feel Donald and Melania should be cut some slack. Do you agree?
