Clinton will ostensibly be the #FirstLady one day. His behavior and how it reflects on his marriage is 100% relevant. Anti-Trump factions have been bitching for months about Melania’s past as a nude model. Conservatives complained about Michelle Obama’s past as do-nothing board member. Nancy Reagan was shamed mercilessly for her “Just Say No” campaign.
Conversely, Americans have an inexplicably romantic attachment to Jackie Kennedy.
Presidential spouses matter to the “tone” of the presiding administration.
Imagine Michelle Obama was caught propositioning a White House intern tomorrow? That would be a huge deal to a lot of people.
We can debate and disagree about Trump’s comments all day long, but the “Clinton defense” is invalid.
I disagree that Bill Clinton is irrelevant as he could ostensibly be the #FirstLady.
