The View Melania Trump Hand


“The View” co-hosts on Wednesday debated Melania Trump refusing to hold Donald Trump’s hand, and whether that’s good or bad. Check out the video below.

As Gossip Cop reported, Melania appeared to slap Donald’s hand away in Israel earlier this month. She also seemingly rejected his hand in Rome. Now on the ABC talk show, Whoopi Goldberg said many believe politics can affect a relationship, and presented, “The Trumps: A Love Story.” The montage showed many of the First Couple’s awkward interactions.

“Are people reading too much? Are we having too much fun with this [or] does this actually happen?” Goldberg asked afterward. John Kasich, who was guest co-hosting, revealed his own wife was none too happy about being first lady of Ohio. “Sometimes the spouse gets put in a position or maybe they’re expected do some things. But I pretty much let my wife do whatever she wants because it doesn’t work any other way,” he said.

Jedediah Bila commented, “I feel bad. I don’t think he wanted the job, actually, but more than him, I don’t think she wanted this job.” Cracked Joy Behar, “Maybe hold-handing isn’t in the pre-nup.” But Sara Haines was in favor of it, even admitting she was “bawling” when Jeb Bush paid tribute to his wife in his concession speech. “When people speak of their partners, it tells you so much about their soul,” she argued.

Whoopi Goldberg agreed, and brought up the viral moment of Barack Obama kissing Michelle Obama’s hand as the Trumps stood next to them not touching. Bila went on to say, “When the country can look at the president and first lady and feel that there’s something happening there that’s beyond politics, that they’re coming together, when you see that family closeness, I think does bring the country together.” Watch the video below.
