Published April 26, 2018

During an off the rails interview with Fox & Friends on Wednesday morning, President Trump admitted he was too busy to get his wife, Melania, anything but a "beautiful card" for her birthday. 

Trump called into the Fox News morning program to discuss a variety of topics. Before he began his rant against James Comey, CNN and the FBI, Trump said it was a special day for an interview because it is Melania's birthday. 

  1. When he was asked what he got the First Lady for his birthday, Trump said, "maybe I didn't get her so much"

    "Well, I better not get into that because I may get in trouble," Trump responded. "Maybe I didn't get her so much. I tell you what... I got her a beautiful card. I'm very busy to be running out looking for presents. I got her a beautiful card, beautiful flowers."

  2. The president's gift, or lack thereof, quickly became the biggest takeaway from the interview
  3. Trump was slammed for finding time to call into Fox News and golf nearly every weekend, but not enough time to get his wife a present
  4. Some even offered the president better gift ideas for Melania's birthday
  5. At the end of the day, Melania probably didn't need a present because she was still smiling from the joke Barack recently told her
