As Donald Trump votes, he has a peek at who his wife Melania is voting for

Just checking.

By media mole

Donald Trump has been captured on camera casting his vote alongside his wife, Melania. It’s a heartwarming scene of marital synchronicity. Except for Trump peeking at who his wife is voting for.

But hey, you can’t blame the guy for checking. After his behaviour towards women was starkly revealed during his campaign, she was probably wavering. She did call his comments in the Trump tapes “unacceptable and offensive”, after all.

Here are some of the best reactions to an image that pretty much sums up the entirety of Trump’s presidential bid: ridiculous, suspicious, disrespectful towards women, and deeply concerning.
