"Free Melania", or "Save Melania", is a phrase referencing Melania Trump in relation to her husband Donald Trump, implying she is afraid of or unhappy with him. It became a meme and hashtag, and trended on social media, when she "was caught several times on camera looking miserable" during Trump's inauguration.
The phrase has been used by anti-Trump demonstrators at marches, and resurfaces occasionally based on the couple's body language and "lack of hand holding". In September 2017, Candice Bergen wore a custom made Lingua Franca sweater emblazoned with the phrase on Watch What Happens Live.
