What just happened?!

First lady Melania Trump liked then unliked a tweet about her husband, President Donald Trump, “building a wall” between the two of them.
The first lady kept relatively quiet during her husband’s campaign and in the first few months of his presidency. That is even truer on her social media accounts. To date, she has only liked two things on her personal Twitter account: one was her own tweet, and the other was a tweet about her husband that read, “Seems the only #Wall @realDonaldTrump‘s built is the one between him and @FLOTUS #Melania #trump.”

She, or whoever was running her social media accounts, quickly unliked the tweet but not before screenshots were taken, and people on Twitter had a field day with it.

So, why would Mrs. Trump like a tweet containing such a condescending message toward her husband? It could have been a simple mistake. However, considering how little she has chosen to be in the public eye, some Twitter users started to wonder if it was a cry for help, albeit unintentional.

We will probably never know why she liked the tweet, but that won’t stop the internet from coming up with endless theories.
