The Trumps haven’t exactly had the best time since coming into the public spotlight more sharply than before upon Donald’s assumption of the presidency, although the line from inside Trump World remains that everything is coming along just fine.
In the face of his dad’s marital scandals, Donald Trump Jr. was revealed a short time before it became official this week to be headed for a divorce, with Vanessa Trump eventually filing for an uncontested official split from her husband.
Among the issues cited by news outlets as underlying Donald Jr. and Vanessa’s split are the facts that he’s kept up an extensive travel scandal and his incendiary behavior on Twitter. Behavior on social media is, of course, not separate from behavior exhibited by someone in real life. In other words, someone who rants and raves about political opponents on a continuous basis probably isn’t that fun at parties, to say the least.
Now, there are indications of another issue in the dissolving marriage between Vanessa and Donald Trump Jr.
A former model has shared questionable a Twitter Direct Message that she received from Trump Jr. back in 2011. The two had an exchange in which he sent an awkwardly shortened message joking about having thought to ask the model, Melissa Stetten, for pictures “from her bathroom.”
The exchange, which included public tweets, was apparently prompted after Stetten had posted a joke about pulling a muscle while changing a tampon. She says that she has deleted her tweets that were a part of the conversation as a part of some general Twitter account maintenance, but tweets that Trump Jr. posted are still public and up.
Trump Jr. responded to her initial tweet by asking if Stetten had “smelled bacon.”
He posted a question to Twitter about the matter without tagging Stetten, writing:
‘Does anyone else have a bacon fetish??? It sounds so wrong, but it tastes so right!’
After that post, he replied to some since deleted comment from Stetten about bacon by writing:
‘Stop that!!! I am a happily married man ;)’
The message Trump Jr. sent Stetten at some point during this exchange reads:
‘Well Im getting shit 4the bacon comment glad I opted not 2send the tweet asking 4pics from ur bathroom tweet last night;) people need2chil.’
Check it out in the tweet below.
Stetten shared the initial message from Trump Jr. by writing:
‘Surprised his marriage didn’t work out since he was sending me DMs a month after his wife gave birth. (I tweeted a joke about pulling a muscle changing a tampon and he replied asking if I smelled bacon? Cool joke)’

A Hollywood news site posted an image of what Trump Jr.’s team apparently says is the full exchange, which includes Stetten awkwardly going along with Trump Jr.’s “jokes.”
This issue facing Trump Jr. comes as the president continues to face issues related to his own marriage.
Earlier this year, it came out that the president’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen had facilitated a payment of $130,000 to adult film star Stephanie Clifford, otherwise known as Stormy Daniels, that accompanied a nondisclosure agreement she signed covering an alleged affair with the president.
Since the initial revelations, Michael Avenatti, a lawyer representing Clifford, has revealed that six women have come forward with stories similar to his client’s.
