The president appeared on Fox & Friends Thursday morning, saying that the interview was in honor of his wife’s April 26 birthday.
If the first lady is holding out for a gesture that comes wrapped up in a pretty box, however, she’s apparently out of luck. According to Trump, “I didn’t get her so much.”
POTUS added that he gave his wife “a beautiful card … and some beautiful flowers.”
“You know, I’m very busy to be running out looking for presents,” he joked.
That may be true, but the collective response from viewers was: That’s it?
That’s IT? She suffers daily humiliation at his hand for flowers and a card?

He should have given her a divorce.

Forget the card. How about not cheating on her with porn stars? I’m sure all she wants for her birthday is a divorce.

A card and flowers.

If Trump’s claim that he chose to do his Fox & Friends interview on the first lady’s birthday as a nod to her is true, it may not have been the best moment for him to admit for the first time that attorney Michael Cohen “represented” him in the Stormy Daniels matter. Trump and Cohen have been accused of paying the adult film star $130,000 to stay silent about her alleged affair with the then-Apprentice host. According to Daniels, Melania had just given birth to son Barron at the time of the relationship.
“Like with this crazy Stormy Daniels deal, he represented me and you know, from what I see, he did absolutely nothing wrong,” Trump said during the broadcast.
This admission came after he noted it was Melania's birthday and he hadn't gotten her a present. https://t.co/yQ5A5LaC57
