Stormy Story quotes of the day, from The NY Times:
“A lawsuit opens the door, and judges almost always allow for a plaintiff to have a fishing expedition,” said Robert S. Bennett, the Washington lawyer who represented Mr. Clinton in the Paula Jones case. The questions could include, “Have you paid other people money?” he said.

Quote of the day:
"Believe me, everybody wants to work in the White House. They all want a piece of that Oval Office; they want a piece of the West Wing," Trump told reporters. "And not only in terms of it looks great on their résumé; it's just a great place to work." Gary Cohn resigning as top White House economic adviser.

As "Trump rages, often alone in the residence on the top floor of the White House," where's Melania? Comments at Daily Kos
He’s got his literal family—though his son-in-law is reeling from the controversy over his security clearance, there have been enough off moments in public to feed speculation about the state of his relationship with the first lady, and Donald Trump Jr. said in India last week that given all the president is dealing with, he feels “it’s almost trite to call him just to say hello.”
While cold-hearted cynics may say to Melania "you made your bed, now you have to sleep in it" there's no way she has avoided being emotionally torn each time a new accusation of her husband's sexual exploits is made public.
The oddities in the relationship between Donald and Melania Trump did not go unnoticed. For example, consider this from the gay website QWERTY
Body language experts decode Donald and Melania Trump’s bizarre behavior
Six days ago, many people’s worst nightmare came true. Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th President of the United States of America. As that terrifying fact starts to sink in, the analysis can begin.
Susan Constantine is a communication and body language expert who has trained U.S. government departments and top lawyers. She recently spoke with Mic about her observations of Donald and Melania Trump at last week’s inauguration, and what their body language says about the couple.
“If you didn’t know that they were married, you wouldn’t know that they are married,” Constantine says. “I don’t see any warmth or true love and compassion in that relationship whatsoever.”
It’s Constantine’s professional opinion, based on close observations of last week’s inauguration festivities, that Melania is more of “an object” to her husband than a wife or even a human being.
Patti Wood, a body language expert and professional speaker, agrees.
Speaking specifically about the moment when the Trumps were greeted by the Obamas at the White House entrance, Wood says, “Not only did he not wait, he went up the stairs and greeted the Obamas. He didn’t even look back to see if she was there or help her up the stairs.”All the presidents in my memory had wives I could describe as their being best friends with their husbands. This even includes Hillary Clinton.
Malignant narcissists don't have true best friends. Ask any woman married to one. There’s a cottage industry of books available to help women who are married to extreme narcissists.
Now there's even more pressure on Melania Trump.
Melania generally gets a pass from the press because they view her as a victim. The Washington Post reopened the questions about her EB-1 visa which Trump promised to answer during the campaign.
In March 2001, she was granted a green card in the elite EB-1 program, which was designed for renowned academic researchers, multinational business executives or those in other fields, such as Olympic athletes and Oscar-winning actors, who demonstrated “sustained national and international acclaim.”
“We called it the Einstein visa,” said Bruce Morrison, a former Democratic congressman and chairman of the House subcommittee that wrote the Immigration Act of 1990 defining EB-1.
The year that Knauss — now first lady Melania Trump — got her legal residency, only five people from Slovenia received green cards under the EB-1 program, according to the State Department.
In all, of the more than one million green cards issued in 2001, just 3,376 — or a fraction of one percent — were issued to immigrants with “extraordinary ability,” according to government statistics.
Melania Trump’s ability to secure her green card not only set her on the path to U.S. citizenship, but put her in the position to sponsor the legal residency of her parents, Viktor and Amalija Knavs. The Washington Post reported earlier this month that the couple is now close to obtaining their own citizenship.
The biggest one: how did she convince immigration authorities that she qualified for the EB-1 program?
Melania is as fastidious a wife as she is a mother, which Donald appreciates. Things come easy with her. “I work very hard from early in the morning till late in the evening,” Donald told Larry King in 2005. “I don’t want to go home and work at a relationship.” To the twice-divorced Donald, Melania is terrific. He’s never heard her fart or make doodie, as he once told Howard Stern. (Melania has said the key to the success of her marriage is separate bathrooms.) He can trust her to take her birth control every day, he boasted to Stern; she’s just amazing that way. She has the perfect proportions—five feet eleven, 125 pounds—and great boobs, which is no trivial matter. Stern once asked Trump what he would do if Melania were in a terrible car accident, God forbid, and lost the use of her left arm, developed an oozing red splotch near her eye, and mangled her left foot. Would Donald stay with her?
“How do the breasts look?” Trump asked.
“The breasts are okay,” Stern replied. Then, yeah, of course Trump stays. “Because that’s important.” There are other pluses. He appreciates Melania’s restraint when it comes to Shopping While Trump. “She’s never taken advantage of that situation, okay, as many women would have, frankly,” he has said. (“I prefer quality over quantity,” Melania tells me.) Donald does his part to make things work, too. “He is a very understanding husband,” Melania once told an interviewer. “If I say, ‘I need an hour, I’m going to take a bath,’ or I’m having a massage, he doesn’t have nothing against it. He’s very supportive in that way.” She lets him have his space; she’s not “needy” or “nagging,” as she tells me.
