Trumps Fly to Florida for Weekend – But Melania Takes Separate Car After New Affair Report

“With her schedule it was easier to meet him on the plane,” first lady’s spokesperson says

In the wake of Ronan Farrow’s New Yorker story featuring a woman alleging another affair with President Donald Trump, first lady Melania Trump has arranged separate transportation to the airbase ahead of their trip to Mar-a-Lago.

According to CNN, the president and first lady typically walk across the South Lawn together to Marine One. However, Melania took a separate car on Friday to meet the Donald Trump at the air base.

“With her schedule it was easier to meet him on the plane,” a spokesperson for the first lady said in a statement to CNN.

In a blockbuster story published on Friday, Farrow reported that Donald Trump had a nine-month affair with former Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal in 2006 — two years into his marriage to Melania Trump — and built up an elaborate system to keep his infidelities out of the press.

The New Yorker obtained an eight-page hand-written note from McDougal in which she wrote that Trump met her at the Playboy Mansion in 2006, offered her money after the first time they had sex, showed her Melania’s separate bedroom in Trump Tower and reimbursed her for flights to avoid creating a paper trail.

She also confirmed that she was paid $150,000 by National Enquirer publisher American Media Inc. for her account of any affair she had with a “then-married man.”

Trump denied having an affair with McDougal through a White House spokesperson, who called it “an old story that is just more fake news.”
