Ever since Donald Trump Jr. and his wife, Vanessa, announced last week that they were separated and heading for divorce, people have been wondering: Why are they breaking up? They have five children together, so why would they decide to split now?
Turns out it’s all about money. Surprise!
The New York Post is reporting today that Vanessa is tired of being married to a cheapskate who gives her nearly nothing to live on:
“He treats her like a second-class citizen.
“He gives her very little help and has been keeping her on a tight budget. She doesn’t live a lavish life and can very rarely pick up a check at dinner.”
In the Trump family, as we’ve learned from President Trump, women are always considered to be second-class citizens, deserving of no respect whatsoever.
The Post also noted that a second source had revealed this tidbit about the strained relationship between Don Jr. and Vanessa:
“Don Jr. was never generous with money. Vanessa has had to rely on her mother for financial help for her personal needs.”
Asked for comment, a spokesperson for Mrs. Trump commented:
“All of these claims are simply not true. Don and Vanessa have tremendous respect for each other and always have. The notion that she has had to rely on her family for assistance is absolutely false and utterly ridiculous.”
Translation: It’s all true.
Friends of the couple say their marital discord goes back years. One recalled:
“They were having problems before they even got married. People were telling her not to marry him before the wedding. She was interviewing divorce lawyers before [Trump’s presidency]. No one thought he’d win. He won and she decided to stay until his term is over. But she just couldn’t stand it anymore.”
And in one final ironic turn, it seems that Vanessa especially hates the crap that her husband posts on social media:
“She hates that he posts stuff online, pictures of their kids and how he paints the picture of him as a perfect father, like he’s Mr. Dad. It’s not the truth. And when he’s not away on business trips, he’s hunting and fishing.”
Yep, Junior is indeed a chip off the old blockhead.
