Trump's joke (?) about Melania

On Tuesday, at a private fundraising event for top Republican fundraisers, Donald Trump went a little rogue. At first he was just reminiscing, thinking about that time the Rep Steve Scalise (R-LA) got shot.

But then he came out with this gem of a line:
“[Scalise’s wife’] cried her eyes out that fateful day …
I mean not many wives would react that way to tragedy,
I know mine wouldn’t.”

We can only guess that Trump said this in jest, of course. But that line can be read in so many ways that soon, it was an online talking point for people eager to share their views on his and Melania’s relationship.
.........................................

Rep Scalise got shot, and Trump thinks it’s weird his wife was "crying her eyes out”.
Then says, if it had been him, Melania wouldn’t have cried?

2. Who would not want a reminder of when they got shot?

Made a punchline of a sick joke.

12. I found it, though the quote is different

During the Lewinsky sexual scandal Dick Armey said, “If I were in the President’s place I would not have gotten a chance to resign. I would be lying in a pool of my own blood, hearing Mrs. Armey standing over me saying, ‘How do I reload this !@#! thing?'”
