Melania Trump pushed the birther conspiracy theory that Barack Obama was not born in the United States. She, like her husband, has trafficked in language meant to divide America.
Just as Donald Trump isn’t convincing when he tries to play the role of president, Melania Trump convinced no one that she actually felt the words that she read as first lady.
Mrs. Trump is all in on her husband’s authoritarian idea that criticizing him is dividing the country. Democrats leveled factual criticisms at Trump based on his performance as president and his record.
Over two nights of their convention, Republicans have been lying and inventing false Joe Biden positions.
Donald Trump tries to divide America every single day, but Mrs. Trump’s attack on Democrats reveals that she hates democracy as much as her husband.
