Former First Lady Melania Trump made clear that she is ready for a break from the spotlight yesterday when she refused to stop and pose for waiting photographers upon her arrival in Florida – instead striding away from them without so much as a wave while her husband posed for pictures.
Video of the moment a stony-faced Melania, 50, purposefully walked straight past the media at Palm Beach Airport while leaving husband Donald in her wake has left many with the impression that she is done playing nice for the cameras.
The recording has gone

Off-dusty: The former first lady simply kept walking off camera without stopping for the cameras
The Trumps left D.C. on Air Force One early on Wednesday and landed hours later in Florida to stay at Mar-a-Lago.
On board, Melania staged an outfit change, swapping the somber black look she departed in for a colorful $3,700 Gucci dress and kicking off her #795 Christian Louboutin heels for $625 ballerina flats by Roger Vivier.
But though changing into a new designer outfit indicated that she knew she’d be photographed upon landing, Melania didn’t seem to have any time or patience for the photographers.
Video footage shows her walking alongside her husband as Trump stops, turns toward the camera, smiles, and waves.
Melania, though, continued walking at the same pace, sparing a frowning glance at the crowd and cameras but otherwise not acknowledging their presence.
One social media user shared a recording of the moment from TV, writing: ‘If “I ain’t got to do this s*** anymore” was a person.

Others have similar ideas about her attitude, saying that Melania seems to be done with playing along and playing nice.
‘She has NO f***s anymore! She is DONE with him! Contract is over!’ wrote one.
‘Nothing says I’m done more than a muumuu,’ said another.
‘She so freaking DONE with this nonsense,’ wrote one more.
Dozens have cracked jokes speculating that Melania is moments away from divorcing Trump now that he is no longer president.
‘Melania is so over this ego clown. I’m going to predict divorce papers are filed in the first 90 days as civilians,’ wrote one.
‘She’s looking forward to signing those divorce papers asap,’ wrote another.
Ending? Many are speculating that she will file for divorce any day now
‘Divorce papers were being delivered before that clip ended,’ said yet another, while one more quipped: ‘She’s in a hurry. Got a meeting with the divorce lawyer in 10. ‘
‘The terms of her post-nuptial just expired.
There have been reports that Melania renegotiated her prenuptial agreement with Trump before moving into the White House.
Last year, Melania’s former aide Stephanie Wolkoff alleged that the Trumps had separate bedrooms in the White House and ‘a transactional marriage’.
Fellow ex-aide Omarosa Manigault Newman claimed the couple’s 15-year marriage was over, adding: ‘Melania is counting every minute until he is out of office and she can divorce.
‘If Melania were to try to pull the ultimate humiliation and leave while he’s in office, he would find a way to punish her.’
Changes: Melania changed her outfit on the plane from Washington, D.C., swapping a somber black ensemble for a colorful $3,700 Gucci dress and navy ballerina flats
