Vanessa Trump has had enough. She has filed for divorce. The reasons for the divorce are unclear.
Stephen Colbert remarked on the release by Trump Jr. of the most damaging e-mail pertaining to the Russia collusion investigation. Some suggested that Don Jr. was an idiot for releasing that e-mail, voluntarily. That e-mail put Jr. at the center of a firestorm after it was revealed that he took a meeting at Trump Tower in June 2016 with a Russian lawyer promising dirt on his father’s Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton.
Trump Jr. made matters worse for himself when he tweeted screen shots of the email chain, exposing his glee (“I love it”) over the prospect of learning damaging information about Clinton. Hours later, Trump Jr. went on Fox News’ Hannity and said, “In retrospect, I probably would have done things a little differently.”
A couple of explanations seem feasible. First, Jr. campaigned for Republican congressional candidate Rick Saccone in Pennsylvania. Saccone lost in a state and district that was heavily concentrated with Trump voters. Vanessa may not have realized what a loser Jr. was until he failed to turn out the vote for Saccone.
Another equally plausible explanation is that Trump Sr. ordered Jr. to divorce his wife because she previously called Trump Sr. a retard. Let me be specific. VAnessa said to Jr., oh, ” you’re “the one with the retarded dad!”
