Of Course, Melania Trump Didn't Purposely Favorite that Tweet

I’m sure by now that most of you have seen that Melania Trump — who has only LIKED one tweet in her life — added a second one last night when she LIKED a tweet that suggested she hated her husband.

That’s the tweet. Here’s proof she LIKED it.

After Twitter exploded, Melania quickly unliked the tweet, but the Internet had receipts. There’s no take-backs on Twitter. Melania clearly approved of a Tweet that suggested she hated her husband.

But of course she didn’t! Why would the First Lady ever intentionally favorite such a thing? Imagine how much that would piss off her husband? The uproar on Twitter! The hundreds of blogs posts devoted to a LIKE. It’s absurd! A woman smart enough to steal from Michelle Obama would never do such a thing.

In fact, there’s a very logical alternative explanation, and I’ve narrowed it down to these benign possibilities:

— She was laughing with her Manhattan friends about how much she hates her husband and her flailing hand accidentally clicked the FAV button on her phone

— She gave her phone to Barron because she needed a fucking break for 10 minutes because she’s been inside her apartment with her kid for 3 months with no help from her husband, so she let him use the phone to watch Girl Meets World and he ended up scrolling through her Twitter account and LIKED the tweet because he thought if he could just upset his Dad, maybe he’d come home and see him for five fucking minutes in his life.

— A hacker named Trelania Mump broke into her phone and FAV’d it.

— After getting off the phone with her therapist to talk about how much she loathed her husband, she accidentally pocket FAV’d the tweet when she was putting it back into her pants

— After reading about Trump’s decision to end Michelle Obama’s Let Girls Learn program, she angrily threw her phone at the wall and it inadvertently FAV’d the tweet

— She meant to hit LIKE on the tweet above, but she was sobbing so hard about how awful her husband is that she couldn’t see through the tears and accidentally FAV’d the wrong tweet.

See? All very innocent explanations. So, can we just dispose of the absurd conspiracy theories?
