She just has to say publicly that Biden won the election. Then Donald will have her fired.

The MAGA fanatics don't mind being fleeced, and Trump is happy to take their money. I suppose the lying part can be put down to habit.

'Donations under $8K to Trump "election defense" instead go to president, RNC'
As President Donald Trump seeks to discredit last week’s election with baseless claims of voter fraud, his team has bombarded his supporters with requests for money to help pay for legal challenges to the results: “The Left will try to STEAL this election!” reads one text.

But any small-dollar donations from Trump’s grassroots donors won’t be going to legal expenses at all, according to a Reuters review of the legal language in the solicitations.

A donor would have to give more than $8,000 before any money goes to the “recount account” established to finance election challenges, including recounts and lawsuits over alleged improprieties, the fundraising disclosures show.

The emailed solicitations send supporters to an “Official Election Defense Fund” website that asks them to sign up for recurring donations to “protect the results and keep fighting even after Election Day.”

...

Scrolling down the page would take a donor to the fine print, which shows that donations are split between “Save America,” which gets 60% of the money, and the RNC, which gets the other 40%. None of the money flows to Trump’s official “recount” committee fund until Trump’s Save America share reaches the legal contribution limit of $5,000, according to the disclosures.

That means that, before a dollar goes into the recount fund, Save America would receive $5,000 and the RNC around $3,300. Donations to the recount committee are legally limited to $2,800.

If a Trump donor gave $500, for instance, $300 would go to Trump’s Save America PAC, $200 would to the RNC - and nothing would go to his election defense fund.

...

Darrell Scott, an Ohio pastor who helped found the National Diversity Coalition for Trump and served on the president’s 2016 transition team, says he sees no problems with diverting the money to the leadership PAC or the RNC.

“I see this as two pockets on the same pair of pants. It doesn’t matter if it goes into the left or the right pocket,” Scott said. “In the end, the money will be used for a legitimate purpose that his supporters will get behind.”
Where the trousers are Donald Trump's and 'legitimate purpose' = 'whatever Donald Trump decides, including personal expenses such as travel and hotel stays' (PAC money can be used for such, as noted in the Reuters piece).

It looks as if you put up $500, you stand to win $300, if they divorce in the next year.

Is it legal for Melania to bet on this?

Trump may be around for a lot longer than we fear. With 49% of voters who favour Trump believing that the election was definitely not free and fair, and another 22% believing that the election was probably not free and fair (link - go to Table POL4), there is a chance that enough Republican governors send faithless electors to the collegiate voting session. 33 states prohibit faithless electors, but few of them have any means of enforcing such laws.

So, what then? Call out the army? Not fucking likely. The National Guard? That's up to the respective state governors. You know, the one's who ignored the law in the first place. Other militia? LOL. The Proud Boys et al won't be much help.

The chance of a coup is very real, and if Trump succeeds with, it the next presidential election will be a sham if it takes place at all.
So you talk about mobs and the working classes as if they were the question. You've got that eternal idiotic idea that if anarchy came it would come from the poor. Why should it? The poor have been rebels, but they have never been anarchists; they have more interest than anyone else in there being some decent government. The poor man really has a stake in the country. The rich man hasn't; he can go away to New Guinea in a yacht. The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all. Aristocrats were always anarchists. - G.K. Chesterton

Mel will have a contract for the duration. Probably gets a big payoff on the 15th January.
