Finally, after weeks of Trump’s campaigning, the public was allowed to hear from Melania Trump. Why has the Republican camp kept Mrs. Trump so quiet during the Trump stump? What reasons do they have for keeping the potential first lady silent? Is it because her accent is so absolutely foreign to American ears that Trump’s handlers thought it might be off-putting for Border Wall supporting ‘Muricans? Is it because she was a softcore porn model before she became the trophy wife of a millionaire? Is it because she’s just not that bright? Who knows? Nobody lets her talk. She could be a genius and the general public wouldn’t know. We don’t know if Melania Trump is the kind of horrible person who would make fun of a fellow gym goer on the internet or if she’s the kind of person who would spend her time helping to build homes for the less fortunate with Habitat for Humanity.
You can bet a bankrupt Trump casino that Orangey McAngryPants didn’t marry Melania for her brains. He married her because she’s very good-looking and for whatever reasons, most likely his money, she married him back. We can all bat our eyelashes and pretend that this isn’t Donald Trump’s marital situation, but to accept anything else would be embracing fiction. After listening to the opening presentations at the RNC convention all day yesterday, I’m a little tired of pretending lies are the truth.
Last night Mrs. Trump gave a speech worthy of any future first lady. It gave us all hope that maybe we could like Melania Trump, but cries of plagiarism are dulling the power of that speech today. These claims state that a large portion of Mrs. Trump’s speech was lifted from Michelle Obama when she spoke in favor of her husband’s campaign in 2008. The Trump camp is denying the plagiarism, but a side by side comparison of the two speeches leaves little doubt where the words originated.
Most likely we have heard all we will hear from Melania Trump during the rest of this convention and possibly for the rest of the campaign. Those of us who have wondered about Donald Trump’s third wife are still left wondering. Because of her nude modeling career, we know some of the most intimate details of her physical makeup, but we have no idea who she is inside.
