“If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself, but to your estimate of it; and this you have the power to revoke at any moment.” ― Marcus Aurelius, Meditations

John F. Kennedy was a democrat. Donald J. Trump is a republican.
While their political ideologies and platforms differed they do share one common thread: they both had “great” sexual appetites and enjoyed the company of women other than their wives.
Reports from many of Kennedy’s body guards stated that on many occasions they were asked to secure the company of women for Mr. Kennedy. This approach was subtle and his trysts never became public knowledge until many years after his untimely death.
Donald Trump on the other hand is unabashed about his lustful eye for women. In his own mind his “movie star” status makes him an irresistible target for those women who not only want to share the limelight with him but also his bed.
While Jackie Kennedy (top left inset) was spared the intimate details of her husbands affairs Melania Trump seems to be stoically accepting the fact that her husband is a player and self affirmed ladies’ man.
Melania holds her contempt well for her insensitive husband and her resolve to stay married to him is remarkable.
Her often cold and unapproachable demeanor might be the result of a once caring woman who has been wronged by a cad lacking scruples, integrity and moral fiber.
On this International Women’s Day celebration women world-wide should publicly vow to never be the target of such abuse ever again. – gc
