Because of America’s puritan instincts, most political media are avoiding the nude photos of Melania Trump, surfaced by the NY Post yesterday, like the plague. They come from a ’96 issue of France’s Max Magazine.
Still, this one, showing Melania (right) acting out a bondage scene, is worth considering. In viciously beating up on people while bringing ultimate shame on himself for doing it, this picture fits the Trump M.O. to a T. What we’re witnessing daily via Twitter and CNN are Donald’s whips and chains. The presidential campaign has largely been reduced to Trump ping-ponging between sadism and masochism — Melania, with her shamefully cribbed convention speech and false resume, being part of the show. Sick as it is, the candidate gets pleasure out of pain.
