Former President Donald Trump was likely pleased by the outcome of this year's Super Bowl event, in which his friend Tom Brady led the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to victory on February 7. However, there was one thing missing from Trump's big game day plans: His wife, Melania.
Trump put on a game day shindig at his Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach Sunday, which welcomed approximately 200 guests at $75 a head, including actor Sylvester Stallone, as well as most of the Trump family. Trump himself showed up dressed nattily in a suit, according to the Washington Examiner.
"Good party, food was great, everyone was happy, and he seemed relaxed and in his element,” a guest told the outlet. That said, former First Lady Melania was nowhere in evidence.
Trump's wife is usually in attendance at this annual party, but nobody seems to know why she decided to ditch it this year. Her absence did not go unnoticed, and, according to The Critic, was catalyst for "prompting rumors of domestic discontentment."
Trump reportedly hung out for the first half of the game, which was watched on several big-screen TVs, ate dinner, and then left at halftime, which is par for the course according to his past behavior.
This year's party is a little different not only for the fact that Mrs. Trump was not in attendance...it's right on the verge of Trump facing his political fate, as he is due this week to create history by becoming the first U.S. president to face an impeachment trial for a second time in the wake of insurgency at the Capitol last month, which he allegedly incited.
