Despite issuing an apology, people are NOT happy that Melania Trump is still standing by her husband, Donald, in the wake of his hot mic tape leak in which he made disgusting remarks toward Nancy O’Dell. We have the details, here.
In the aftermath of Donald Trump’s, 70, leaked hot mic tape from 2005 in which he made lewd comments about women, his wife, Melania Trump, 46, is getting heat from voters for sticking by the controversial presidential candidate. Angry Twitter users stormed the social media platform, expressing their disappointment toward Donald’s leading lady.
Huge shock that despite condemning his comments, Melania Trump is standing by her husband, the billionaire Donald Trump. #trumptapes

Melania Trump is standing by her husband, and not just because the large stacks of $ make it physically difficult to exit the apartment.

While some tweeters were dumbfounded as to how Melania could still support Donald after all of his nasty comments, some also blatantly called her a gold digger. Some wrote that she was just out for his money, and still others also called her a hypocrite. Some even referred to Donald as a “sex predator” and repeatedly asked Melania how she could still stand by him. We are seriously wondering the same thing.
Melania did issue a public statement on Oct. 8, slamming her own hubby for his vile remarks. “The words my husband used are unacceptable and offensive to me,” she wrote. “This does not represent the man that I know. He has the heart and mind of a leader. I hope people will accept his apology, as I have, and focus on the important issues facing out nation and the world.” Meanwhile, even though Donald issued a video statement, apologizing for the 2005 video, he did not say he was sorry to his wife. Melania was even pregnant with the couple’s son, Barron, during the time of the taping!
HollywoodLifers, what do you think about voters bashing Melania for still sticking by her husband? Are you surprised she’s still supporting him? Sound off below.
