Trump Now Flying Solo to Palm Beach

The sacrament of marriage has taken a beating in recent decades, but it's time to take a stand. If Donald and Melania Trump's marriage is not the fairy tale story it appears to be, then all hope is lost.

Fortunately for us romantics, reports of that marriage's demise appear to be premature. Sure, The Donald is now spending weekends in Palm Beach minus Melania; but that's because the couple has a 5-year-old kid going to school in Manhattan. The rug rat doesn't get out until around 5 on Fridays, and it's really hard finding plane tickets that leave so late for weekends in Palm Beach.

Oh, wait. The Trumps have their own jets. So the excuse that Trump gave to People magazine doesn't make much sense, does it?
