Melania Trump has had a hard time adjusting to her role as the first lady. On Inauguration Day, a viral video of Melania frowning inspired the hashtag #FreeMelania. She was criticized for wearing stiletto heels to a disaster site. Melania was also attacked by Trump's first wife, Ivana. 

Now stories of Trump's affairs with porn star Stormy Daniels and playmate Karen McDougal while Melania was pregnant are all over the news.

A former Playboy model who claimed she had an affair with Donald J. Trump sued on Tuesday to be released from a 2016 legal agreement restricting her ability to speak, becoming the second woman this month to challenge Trump allies’ efforts during the presidential campaign to bury stories about extramarital relationships.
Ms. Clifford and Ms. McDougal tell strikingly similar stories about their experiences with Mr. Trump, which included alleged trysts at the same Lake Tahoe golf tournament in 2006, dates at the same Beverly Hills hotel and promises of apartments as gifts. 

The latest news has many people feeling bad for Melania. Reports suggest she never wanted to be first lady and is a deeply private person. It's hard enough being married to Donald Trump, let alone having your personal business on the front page of every magazine. Does she really deserve the humiliation?

But others think Melania isn't deserving of anyone's pity. She publicly supported Trump's racist birther movement—which suggested President Barack Obama wasn't born in the United States. She has been hypocritical toward immigrants despite having worked illegally in the U.S. herself for a number of years. And her "anti-bullying" campaign is a complete joke. Melania is not a victim, she's an enabler.
