Marc Snetiker of Entertainment Weekly shared two images this weekend that speak volumes about Donald Trump.
Both show the Trumps arriving at the White House the morning of the inauguration, and being greeted by the Obamas.
In the photos, you see Trump leaving the car, walking up to meet the Obamas, and leaving his wife Melania nowhere to be found. Later, you find Melania walking up by herself, ignored. In the second pic, you see Trump walking into the White House and ignoring his wife, who the Obamas end up taking care of.

At the suggestion of someone on Twitter, I went and found the video. It’s no better. Trump just abandoned his wife all together.
Contrast this with the Obama’s meeting the Bushes on their inauguration day in 2009. You’ll note Barack letting Michelle go first:

And there’s video. Note how Obama waited for Michelle to get out of the car.
Another telling moment, right before Trump’s searing in.
Those private moments that can be so revealing. pic.twitter.com/8vy7RmEE7E

It’s going to take me a while to completely forgive Melania Trump for suggesting that journalist Jewish Julia Ioffe deserved to be viciously attacked by neo-Nazis online. Still, I feel sorry for Melania.
I’d love to get Trump in a room with Michelle for five minutes. That would set him straight.
