Melania follows less than a handful of people on twitter, her husband, Mike Pence, Karen Pence — and Barack Obama? Yes, go back and read that a second time. That’s what it is. And it has nothing to do with Stormy Daniels. Newsweek:

That would mean the first lady, with 9.7 million followers on the social media platform, made Obama’s the fifth account she followed, [Trump has two, a personal and presidential] months before a Wall Street Journal report surfaced in January claiming that her husband’s lawyer had paid off porn star Stormy Daniels to cover up an alleged affair. Lawyer Michael Cohen has denied that a sexual encounter took place.

It remains a mystery why the first lady decided to follow Obama, whom her husband has long criticized and whose policies he has made a point to undo. The move had been interpreted by many as a slight against the president.

Since the emergence of news and speculation about Donald Trump’s alleged infidelity, he and his wife had been rarely seen in public together. The pair even traveled separately to the State of the Union last week.

Melania is frequently inscrutable. This is yet one more mystery ascribed to the Slovenian Sphinx. She certainly pushed the birther conspiracy far enough, so it’s not plausible to believe that she admires Obama — although, who knows? Your guess is as good as anyone’s.
