In case you missed it:

A White House source told “Melania spends three to four days a week away from the White House and has stayed at a hotel in D.C. multiple times in January, often for days at a time. She also travels up to New York.”

And yes, many people assumed it was news about a certain porn star who did the horizontal nasty with the real estate mogul:

Talk among staffers is that the Stormy Daniels affair hit her hard, it’s been upsetting and humiliating and her relationship with President Trump has become strained.

Well, according to this article posted Monday evening to the NY Daily News, there is an interesting twist — and an equally tantalizing insinuation:

Reports that porn star Stormy Daniels had been paid to keep quiet about an alleged affair she had with President Trump over a decade ago blindsided and infuriated First Lady Melania Trump, according to a report.

The First Lady has kept a low profile since The Wall Street Journal reported that Michael Cohen, the President’s lawyer, paid Daniels $130,000 to cover up the affair in exchange for her silence just before the 2016 election.

She was furious with Trump amid the payoff reports, sources close to the couple told The New York Times.

Melania Trump was absent from her husband’s trip to Davos, Switzerland, for the World Economic Forum last week — but will be attending the President’s first State of the Union address on Tuesday, according to The Times.

One might read into this that Melania was aware of The Donald’s diddling Daniels — but was furious about both the eruption of the story and the fact that Daniels was so well compensated for her silence.

Could the payoff be grounds for a White House divorce?
