Is Melania Trump’s Twitter account “a desperate cry for help”?

Things can’t be good for Melania Trump right now.

The First Lady’s behaviour is constantly put under the microscope, with many people thinking that her relationship with her husband is on the rocks.

The latest theory that is taking over the internet is that she is trolling Donald Trump with her social media activity – in particular, who she follows on Twitter.

It’s no secret that Donald Trump is a fan of the social media platform, so he may raise an eyebrow or two when he finds out who she is following…

Melania only follows five people. She follows both Donald Trump private and professional accounts, as well as Vice President Mike Pence and his wife Karen Pence – so far, so good.

But it’s the fifth and final person that might seem like a slap in the face to her husband, as it’s none other than former president, Barack Obama.


“Soooo @FLOTUS Melania only follows 5 people on her twitter account and one is Obama! What a glorious cry for help

Now this is where it gets interesting. Barack Obama seems to be the most recent person that Melania has followed, which is why the internet thinks she has done it as a way of subtly/not-so-subtly trolling her husband.

Here are some theories courtesy of the social media platform in question…


“It’s a lovely bit of husband-trolling that Melania Trump only follows five people and one of them is Barack Obama.”


“Soooo @FLOTUS Melania only follows 5 people on her twitter account and one is Obama! What a glorious cry for help. No Donnie.”


“If you were still wondering if Melania Trump is actually still on his husbands side, all you have to do is look at her Twitter account and see that she follows 5 people, none of which are Trump’s children and 1 of which is BARACK OBAMA!”


“Melania Trump used to follow 4 people’s accounts on Twitter.

President Trump.

Karen Pence.

Vice President Mike Pence.

Real Donald Trump.

She now follows 5.

Melania has followed President Barack Obama.

Hubby will be pissed! #auspol”
