Rob Porter’s 2nd wife, Jennifer Willoughby: All you need to know
Controversy is brewing regarding another member of President Donald Trump’s inner circle. Second wife of a White House staffer has accused her husband, Trump’s staffs secretary Rob Porter of marital abuses. There is no denying that her accusations have left White House hard pressed to respond in the face of another raging controversy.
Jennifer Willoughby, who is Rob Porter’s second wife has come out with serious allegations of marital abuses against her husband, who is said to be Donald Trump’s one of the most trusted staffers. The 39-year old woman has spilled the beans in a lenghty interview with the Daily Mail that is going viral since its publication.
The British tabloid claims that the White House staffer in question has failed to get the security clearance from agencies. Nonetheless it has not stopped Trump from employing him and keeping him in his inner circles in the Oval Office for more than a year now.
Jennifer Willoughby is not the only one to have accused Porter of marital abuses, his first wife has seconded that he verbally abused her on a very regular basis. His first wife Colbie Holderness was quoted by the DailyMail as saying, ‘He was verbally, emotionally and physically abusive and that is why I left.’
Nonetheless, his colleagues have come out swinging in his support, trying to puncture claims of his wife about his extremely bad behavior. John Kelly, Chief of Staff says, “Rob Porter is a man of true integrity and honor and I can’t say enough good things about him. He is a friend, a confidante and a trusted professional. I am proud to serve alongside him…I have worked directly with Rob Porter nearly every day for the last year and the person I know is someone of the highest integrity and exemplary character…Those of us who have the privilege of knowing him are better people because of it.”
Porter’s wife claims that Porter dragged her from the shower by her shoulders in December 2009. Willoughby says she was naked and dripping. That incident led to Willoughby not going on vacation with Porter’s family during that holiday season. This was not the only incident recounted by his second wife. She goes on to recount several incidents where Porter called her a “f***ing b****” under his breath in public settings, including on their honeymoon in Myrtle Beach.
She was so much shocked following the shower incident that she sought the help of a therapist. She adds that he never took his anger out on others and wasn’t even prone to road rage. The couple split in early 2010 with Willoughby adding that in the last weeks of their relationship, she had suffered a miscarriage. Later that year, Willoughby filed a protective order against Porter after he wouldn’t leave their apartment. During an argument, Willoughby punched a glass window and cut his hand, reports the Daily Mail.
Reports suggest that Willoughby is a well-known and respected motivational speaker in the D.C. area. Her Facebook page describes her as a “writer, speaker, teacher, resilient optimist.” While writing on Facebook she said, “I am quick to forgive. I am willing to hear others’ pain and endure their attacks. And I am able to remove my ‘self’ from most situations as I recognize that nothing is ever truly about me.”
She seems to be rather very positive about life, While writing on her official website, she says, “I believe in the goodness and kindness of all beings. I believe in the power of adversity to transform us into stronger, more beautiful, more compassionate versions of ourselves. I KNOW we are more than the sum of our past circumstances and choices.”
