Nope, doesn’t bother me. It’s a discussion. Gold-digger has a negative connotation (against mostly women), whereas I see their marriage as a mutually agreed upon arrangement — they each want what the other has, and therefore there’s nothing negative about it. It may not be what you or I would want , but people marry for all sorts of reasons, none of which are “wrong” or “right” as long as everyone is being transparent. I think the Trumps know exactly what’s going on and they’re good with it. So, I’m good with it.
