Melania to Donald: "I'm your puppet."

Reported in Melania Trump Calls on ‘Both Sides’ to End Family Separation.  (The New York Times, 6/17/2018)

"I'm Your Puppet", James and Bobby Purify's only top 10 hit, debuted at #96 on the Billboard Hot 100 for the week ending September 24, 1966.  It spent 14 weeks on the chart, peaking at #6 for 2 weeks.

Take it from Khrushchev’s granddaughter: Melania Trump is the perfect autocrat’s wife.  (Quartz, 3/3/2017)
On Sunday, “hosting” the annual Governors Ball, she appeared robotic, barely present at the event that she had allegedly planned. In a statement (not a personalized welcome) she declared that the ball was about unity and not politics, a plan that got quickly derailed by her husband’s promise to undo the Affordable Care Act.

Donald is 72.  Melania is 48, and totally out of her element.  Donald Jr. is 40 (ditto).  Ivanka is 36 (ditto).

Which brings us full circle.
