Wife Of Top Trump Aide Dan Scavino Files For Divorce

The Huffington Post reports:

Jennifer Scavino, the wife of Dan Scavino, an aide to President Donald Trump who serves as White House social media director, filed for divorce in late January 2018, county records reveal. Scavino, who is one of Trump’s closest aides, holds the title of assistant to the president, the highest-ranking staff position in the White House, one that he shares with aides like Kellyanne Conway, White House Counsel Don McGhan, and Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, among others.

Scavino, 42, has a long history with Trump and the Trump family. He met then- businessman Donald J. Trump in 1990, when he served as his caddie, and later served as the general manager of one of his golf clubs. Scavino was just 16 years old at the time. A June 2017 profile of Scavino in Politico characterized him as “the president’s mini-me, a man whose bombast, impulse control and instinct for a good punch match those of his boss.”

RELATED: Shortly after the 2016 election, cable news host Megyn Kelly revealed that she had hired armed guards due to death threats she’d received after urging Scavino to rein in his army of trolls.

    ‘He met then- businessman Donald J. Trump in 1990, when he served as his caddie,’

    He’s still a cad. He’s just too dumb to realize it.

    • ChrisMorley

      tRump was 43 when he hired this then 16 year old as caddy. hmmmm

      Blow jobs in the golf bunkers?

    We better get the pool started on Melanoma and Iwankya before they announce. Somebody’s got to pay for all this alcohol.

    • Treant

      Melanoma long before Ipumpya. Ipumpya’s in it up to her eyeballs.

    He sounds like a truely horrible person

  • Mark Née Fuzz

    People from all walks of life get divorced – republicans, democrats, straight, gay. This is not newsworthy.

    • gaycuckhubby

      I saw Ben Stiller is getting divorced after 17 years 🙁

    • ccc

      It is newsworthy since the spouses of these senior officials are seeing the handwriting on the wall before they get caught up in losing money and potentially going to jail.

    • clay

      Particularly people under stress from things like a major career change– it might no longer be the life the spouse signed up for, or indicates a major change of values leading to irreconcilable differences. People also look for patterns, sometimes seeing something that’s not really there. One or two divorces could just be accidents of timing; without more detailed information, there isn’t enough to suggest a trend, yet.

      • thatotherjean

        True. The possibility of going to jail does not tend to bring out the best in people, or their spouses, though.

    • kareemachan

      When it could possibly be used to rearrange assets, yeah, it is newsworthy.

      PS – not *everything* has to be “newsworthy”.

    • TrollopeReader

      if it’s the West Wing … it’s newsworthy.

    • Reality.Bites

      When newsworthy people do ordinary things, it’s newsworthy because it’s them doing it, not because the thing is inherently newsworthy.

      If it wasn’t newsworthy, you wouldn’t be here making comments.

  • unsavedheathen

    How much of this and more so Jr.’s announced plans to divorce do you imagine is driven by a desire to place assets out of the reach of prosecutors and juries?

    • John30013

      My guess is that, like Jr.’s wife, Scavino’s was not prepared for the legal scrutiny and political backlash that would attend Drumpf‘s rise to the Presidency. It’s one thing to work for the man when he’s in private business; quite another when he’s the top politician (and likely the most despised person) in the country (even if he wasn’t such an asshole).

    • David L. Caster

      Hard to say. However if there is a pattern that comes to light during investigation such a move will not have the intended effect.

  • TuuxKabin

    $helter that $.

    • Nychta

      Yep, they can always remarry or arrange a funding scheme after the dust has settled. That’s how the sanctity of marriage works, right?

      • TuuxKabin

        Their entire lives are schemes. Sanctity of material wealth.

  • Holy jesus, can you imagine trying to fuck that guy every night? Talk about the face that sank a thousand shits. No wonder she divorced him. She probably only married this asshole out of pity anyway.

  • GayOldLady

    So in other words Scavino is just another thug Lieutenant in the White House Mafia? I wonder why it took his wife so long to divorce him?

    • TheSeer

      Mueller

    • TuuxKabin

      At least she’s doing it now, and as the others in that dirt bag of a WH, they have some assets to rearrange most likely.

      Severe weather covering much of your state. You prepared? And good morning, Dollingk.

      • GayOldLady

        Good morning! Yep, we’re prepared. Looks like we will have chance of severe weather including chance of tornadoes at some point today. We’re accustomed to it and we have a basement area this is underground to take shelter. Darlin is going to PT at 10 and should be home safe & sound before the most serious weather.

        Are y’all still in the deep freeze?

        • TuuxKabin

          Brain freeze. Please. Yeah. It’s the fookin’ wind.

        • kareemachan

          I first read that as ‘chance of tomatoes’ and was…wut?

          Hey, it’s early on the left coast.

          • GayOldLady

            LOL!!!!

    • stevenj

      When you’re married to the mob……

  • Kruhn

    Gee! The best minds and the best people? I think not!

  • kareemachan

    Why do trumpsters look like such douches? The derp is strong within them.

  • red-diaper-baby 1942

    This kind of news from Trumplandia is great. I can indulge my strong sense of schadenfreude, without having to worry about a coming economic meltdown, a war with Canada, or a “preemptive” nuclear attack on North Korea..Let the divorces continue — starting with Melania!

  • bearLvrFL

    I’m not usually a vengeful kind of guy, but I wish major blow back on all parties involved in this pillaging of our democracy. And I’ll take indirect, karmic-style consequences.

    • bearLvrFL

      On the street, if you have poor impulse control and love a good punch, you end up dead, in jail, in rehab, or on parole. In the penthouse, you end up in a plum White House position.

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    Hmmmm, first it’s Jr’s wife, now it’s this insipid worm’s….could this be a trend? Probably not, but a gurl can dream.

  • Macbill

    May the divorce be painfully long and filled with public recriminations. May Dan Scavino be too busy divorcing to have time for politicking.

  • JWC

    any Trump charmer C’mon Mellie step up to the poalte

  • TrollopeReader

    Trump Family Values ….

  • Jim Maloney

    This is not surprising. He composes some of Trump’s tweets.

  • JCF

    Pssst, soon-to-be-ex Mrs Scavino? CALL ROBERT MUELLER!

  • Reality.Bites

    They’re down to Chevys?
