“She was definitely communicating via Morse Code,” U.S. Army Communications officer John Caring said. “She was blinking ‘help me’ over and over again.”

One White House employee was reported to have heard the First Lady tell an aide “Do you know what he’s going to do to me tonight?”

After reviewing the tapes, experts conclude Melania said “Help me” approximately 142 times during the ceremony.
