 ‘Echoes of Melania’ Melissa Cohen Biden’s Composed Courtroom Demeanor Draws Attention


As the federal gun crime trial against Hunter Biden unfolds, it is his wife, Melissa Cohen Biden, who has unexpectedly captured public attention with her calm, almost stoic demeanor, reminiscent of former First Lady Melania Trump. While Hunter faces charges for illegally possessing a firearm as an alleged active drug user in 2008, the manner in which Melissa supported her husband during their recent court appearance has become a focal point.

Body language expert Patti Woods provided insights to The Sun, observing that Melissa “is doing a bit of that Melania ‘cool girl’ scowl as she walks.” This comparison highlights a stark contrast between her composure and Hunter’s apparent nervousness. “He’s showing more anxiety than she is, but she has that cool girl, ‘I’m cooler than this’ attitude,” Woods explained.

Further dissecting Melissa’s demeanor, Woods noted the significance of how she held Hunter’s hand, suggesting a supportive yet forward-moving gesture. “Her facial expression and even the way she’s holding his hand up. She’s pulling him upward and the arms are lifted up. They’re having a moment where he’s like, ‘I’m so sad but I’m glad you’re here with me.’ Her body language is just, ‘Let’s get going. We gotta move.'”

Melissa’s fashion choices also spoke volumes. Her sunglasses and tightly pulled back hair were interpreted by Woods as a “cool façade of protection,” elements that project calmness and control amidst the tumultuous environment of a high-profile trial, as per The New York Times. 

The case itself has brought significant attention not only to Hunter but also to his relationships and past life. During the proceedings, testimonies from Hunter’s ex-wife Kathleen Buhle and former girlfriend Zoe Kestan shed light on his struggles with substance abuse and its impact on his personal life. Both women painted a complex portrait of a man living a dichotomous existence—caught between substance dependency and a lavish lifestyle in New York and Los Angeles.

Amidst this turbulent period, Melissa’s role has been pivotal. Married to Hunter since 2019, she has been credited by him as a crucial support in his recovery from addiction. In a 2021 interview with CBS Sunday Morning, Hunter reflected on the beginning of their relationship, sharing how he openly confessed his addiction issues on their first date—a moment he describes as a “miracle.” When confronted with his past, Melissa’s response was firm: “Well, that ends now.”

As the trial continues, with prosecutors planning to call six more witnesses, the spotlight remains not only on the legal battle Hunter is fighting but also on the quiet strength Melissa exhibits, drawing inevitable comparisons to Melania Trump’s demeanor under scrutiny.
