Last week we learned the heartbreaking news that Donald Trump Jr. and his wife Vanessa were going through a divorce. After being married for 12 years and having five children together, Vanessa made it official by filing the paperwork and ending her marriage. It’s clear that living in the limelight of the press and especially the vindictive left-leaning press, can bring a lot of pressure to a marriage. Now, we’re learning that they aren’t the only ones breaking up under all the pressure.
Today, a second shocking divorce announcement has come out. The sudden split after years together is shaking up the White House and already causing loathsome sleuths on the left to attack.
Yesterday, the liberal site Jezebel, wrote this scathing piece about both families and their divorces. As if suffering the devastation of a marriage ending is not hard enough, these hateful commentators revel in the misery and add insult to injury. Sadly, a long time friend and colleague of the president is going through a very difficult time in marriage right now for a tragic reason.
Jezebel reports on the heartbreak in an absolutely vile manner:
Love is decidedly not in the air at the White House—mere days after Vanessa Trump ripped out Donald Trump, Jr.’s lion-killing heart and fed it to her attorney, it’s been revealed that the wife of Dan Scavino, Trump’s assistant and Twitter enabler, filed for divorce in January. On the bright side, Don Jr. has someone to watch A Night at the Roxbury with on repeat until the pain goes away.
According to the Huffington Post, Jennifer Scavino filed for in Dutchess County, New York, in January. She and Dan Scavino have been married since September 2000 and have two children. The cause of divorce is not clear.
Scavino, who in addition to his role as Trump’s assistant, acts as the White House social media director, has been with Team Trump since 1990, when he started working as Trump’s caddie. Over the decades, Scavino’s shot up in the ranks, but he had his true 15 minutes of fame in July 2016, when he tweeted from Trump’s account a meme of Hillary Clinton’s face superimposed over piles of cash, with a six-pointed star emblazoned with the caption, “Most Corrupt Candidate Ever.”
For the MSM to suggest that I am antisemite is AWFUL. I proudly celebrate holidays w/ my wife's amazing Jewish family for the past 16 years.

Folks quickly pointed out that the tweet, which has since been deleted, featured a whole bunch of anti-Semitic imagery, not the least of which was the Star of David-seeming star. Scavino defended the meme, claiming it couldn’t possibly be anti-Semitic, because his wife’s Jewish family let him celebrate Rosh Hashanah with them or something:
Unfortunately, it appears Scavino will no longer be able to use that excuse, and will instead have to rely on Roy Moore’s attorney to earn points with members of the Tribe. The good news is, Don Jr.’s also single and breakups have strength in numbers, though I do weep for Washington, D.C.’s bar scene.
Dan Scavino, is just the latest casualty in the war of words. The left takes joy in mocking two men who have lost their marriages to a difficult lifestyle. But let’s be honest, it’s all they have. Disparaging words can’t cover up the mess that is brewing in Washington. With Comey and McCabe out at the FBI, new and very troubling documents coming to light, showing that McCabe lied to FISA courts to spy on Trump’s campaign. Things got bad enough for him that the FBI’s own Office of Professional Responsibility recommended he be terminated. Sticks and stones left-leaners, words don’t hurt you, but facts do.
