On the first night of the Republican Party’s National Convention, Melania Trump, wife of Donald Trump, took to the stage and delivered an address. By all accounts she knocked it out of the park. Mrs. Trump impressed upon the audience that as an immigrant, she came to this country legally, and the values that were instilled in her at a young age, which are, incidentally, the same values we Americans hold.
The political left pounced on a single paragraph of Mrs. Trump’s speech that contained a number of common phrases and sentiments with charges of plagiarism. (Unfortunately, this was close to the same sentiments put forth in a speech delivered by Michelle Obama in 2008. A colleague dissected this baseless charge in another article found here.) Saying that one’s word is their bond is not a statement that qualifies for such an allegation, but Mrs. Trump was saddled with the label of cheater regardless.
Typical of the leftist species, the people who are hell bent against a Donald Trump presidency took to Twitter to spout off with #FamousMelaniaTrumpQuotes while hiding behind monikers as they ridiculed the woman’s Slovenian accent, and the perception that she is nothing more than a spoiled rich woman. In addition to some very famous quotes from movies, the geniuses of Twitter attributed quotes from political speeches and various cult figures to Mrs. Trump with a twist of nastiness.
Here are some of the more vile offerings:
Considering the woman speaks five languages fluently – an achievement VERY FEW Americans can boast – and that she escaped her native Slovenia, which was part of communist Yugoslavia at the time, thanks to modelling, and hard work, the snideness of the sniggers of ridicule are truly that of little people. Little meaning small of character. Yes, Melania Trump may be married to one of the wealthiest men on the planet, but that does not make her less of a quality person. She has achieved more in her life than most people can in three. In the class department, she puts the current First “Lady” to shame. When she emigrated, she did so legally, and now has American citizenship. The woman does not deserve this sort scorn heaped on her.
Paul Joseph Watson was busy on Twitter defending Mrs. Trump. Some of his conversations are available at CNN.
