Melania Suffers Widespread Public Embarrassment At Thursday Rally


On Thursday, First Lady Melania Trump appeared alongside President Donald Trump at a campaign rally in Tampa, Florida. Her comments were, quite simply, ridiculous. While at the rally, she blamed “the media” for spreading “hate, negativity, and fear,” as if she’s never listened to her own husband’s campaign messaging for any significant period of time. Obviously, she is familiar with the Trump campaign’s vitriolic and fear-riddled messaging — she’s just lying. At another point during the same event, Melania triumphantly insisted that Donald and his team “are focused on creating ways for people to safely stop isolating” amidst the pandemic — but the Trump campaign is not practicing any kind of consistent social distancing. Melania was speaking to a packed rally crowd when she made these remarks.

Melania’s allegation that “the media” are responsible for spreading “fear” is just galling — it’s her own husband who has ludicrously claimed that Democrats would even “abolish” the suburbs if elected. This claim is entirely false; it stems from an Obama era housing regulation that directed communities to explore ways to do away with racial segregation. Of course — this fear-riddled nonsense is one of many examples of similar messaging from the Trump campaign.

Undeterred, Melania insisted:

‘In a time when hate, negativity, and fear are the messages the media streams into our homes and the large tech companies are protecting political censorship, we need to remember what is really important: my husband’s administration is focused on the future, the health and safety of the American people, the education and well-being of our children, the safety and security of our streets and communities, and the protection of our fundamental family values.’

It’s simply wild for Melania to suggest that her husband is in any way systematically and consistently “focused on the future.” Frequently, Donald Trump seems much more focused on playing golf and complaining on Twitter. Check out Melania’s wild comments below:

At a later point during that same rally, Melania referenced the Trump administration’s supposed commitment to finding ways for Americans to safely “stop isolating.” Trump supporters are already frequently not isolating. Just look at the rally crowds! The rhetoric from Melania to the contrary hearkens back to the president’s own lies that states like Michigan are currently “locked down.” The notion that Michigan is “locked down” is nonsense.

Melania said:

‘This president and his team are focused on not only destroying the virus and building back the economy, they are focused on creating ways for people to safely stop isolating and safely start gathering with friends again on safe distances. This is about mental health as much as it is physical.’

So many of Melania’s remarks are just laughably ridiculous. Watch below:
