There’s nobody President Donald Trump dislikes more than Barack Hussein Obama. That’s why it came as a surprise this week when it was revealed that Obama is one of only five people who Melania Trump follows on Twitter.
Fox News reported that the other four people Melania follows include her husband’s private Twitter account, his presidential account, Vice President Mike Pence and his wife Karen.
“It’s a lovely bit of husband-trolling that Melania Trump only follows five people and one of them is Barack Obama,” author Matt Haig wrote on Twitter.

It’s not clear when Melania started following Obama, who she first met on Inauguration Day in 2017. Back in 2011, Melania sat down with proud liberal Joy Behar to say that she supports her husband’s birther movement that demanded Obama release his birth certificate.
“It’s not only Donald who wants to see [Obama’s birth certificate], it’s American people who voted for him and who didn’t vote for him. They want to see that,” she said.
This comes as rumors are swirling that the Trump marriage is on the rocks after claims surfaced that the current president had an affair with adult film star Stormy Daniels back in 2006, four months after the birth of his son Barron. Reports came in that Melania was so livid about this that she briefly moved out of the White House, choosing to instead stay at a ritzy Washington D.C. hotel.
Daily Mail reported that as Donald and Melania were seen leaving the White House on Monday, the president appeared to try and hold his wife’s hand. She didn’t seem to be having any of it, however, as she hid her hand inside canary yellow full length overcoat rather than return the gesture.
Twitter users rushed to speculate as to what the footage means.
“Melania is totally p****d off at her fake husband,” one Twitter user wrote. ‘”In Florida she came down stairs and walked right past him. Now they are in Ohio. He tried to take her hand and she pulled away. Stormy Daniels has blown up the marriage. I hope she sues for divorce.”
