Life coach and founder of Interpersonal Relationship Coaching (IRC) John Kenny said that Melania’s body language suggests that she is unhappy with her hard-headed hubby.
"She may realize that she has chosen to be with someone that isn't good for her, as her actions dictate, that even in public she finds it hard not to show her emotions," Kenny told The Daily Star after social media exploded earlier this year when the 50-year-old walked away from the former commander-in-chief when they arrived in Florida on the day of President Joe Biden’s inauguration. "This comes out in her body language and behavior."
In response to an article that claimed Melania was "bitter and chilly" towards Trump, her team said, "Mrs. Trump is no longer First Lady. She is a private citizen, mother, & wife. Sources in this article are not affiliated w her nor have insight into her thoughts or daily life. CNN’s FLOTUS Correspondent choosing to publish false gossip illustrates the media’s unhealthy obsession."
However, she then went on to wish "everyone" a Happy Valentine’s Day last month, but failed to specifically mention her husband. According to Kenny, the response shows that she is "struggling with people highlighting her real emotions," and may suggest that Melania has trouble facing the “truth” because she is "being constantly reminded of it."
"Her comment about an Unhealthy Obsession about her relationship is likely because of the emphasis she is placing on it herself," Kenny said. "She might be defending her relationship, as now he is no longer president it is ok for her so speak out. But maybe she is struggling with people highlighting her real emotions."
The Trumps relationship is clearly very different from that of the current First Family. "With the Bidens, we see a couple who are very comfortable with one another and it seems natural for the two to lock hands whether interlaced or palm to palm," Tonya Reiman, author of three books on body language and human behavior previously told OK!. She added that the Trumps seem like "two individuals who are uncomfortable with each other."
"We consistently see Melania avoiding any touch by Trump, whether holding hands or general touching (even when President Trump would attempt to hold her back — escort her — she would pull away)," Reiman said and added that Trump’s face "after being rebuffed by Melania" at a presidential debate in October "speaks volumes."
