The online discourse surrounding Melania Trump’s happiness has run the gamut from joke to genuine concern, but red flags were raised everywhere after a video surfaced of the First Lady noticeably flinching as she’s touched by her husband.
Melania visibly recoils as Trump comes up behind her at a rally in Melbourne, and it has many viewers vocalizing worry for what they perceive as a potential sign of abuse.

It’s definitely troubling to watch her sharp intake of breath and pause as she recovers from being taken by surprise.
