The Melania Factor

Melania Trump
The cruel vipers that make up the Far Left of the Twitterverse were quick to dismiss and ridicule First Lady Melania Trump’s speech to the Republican National Convention.

Washed-up singer-actress Bette Midler mocked Mrs. Trump’s accent after her Republican National Committee speech and referred to her as an “illegal alien,” sparking public backlash on social media.

As Joseph Weber reported for Just the News, the 74-year-old Midler criticized Mrs. Trump, a Slovenian native, in a series of tweets.

““#beBest is back! A UGE bore! She can speak several words in a few languages,” Midler began. “Get that illegal alien off the stage!”

She later tweeted: "Oh, God. She still can’t speak English.” “journalist” Aaron Rupar @atrupar tweeted:

The bar is so low for Trump that Melania giving a speech in which she doesn’t say anything racist and speaks in a calm tone generates a day of positive coverage

The Washington Post’s unhinged Jennifer Rubin piled on with this tweet:

Media insist on giving style points to Melania rather than identifying her participation in a massive Hatch Act violation. Who cares if she reads comments about pandemic victims (a pandemic Trump ignores) if she illegally uses the trappings of govt power?

But Rachel Campos-Duffy got a better line on the Melania effect than the Far Left trolls when she tweeted:

Vogue & others are missing out on Melania’s fabulous fashionista revolution because they hate Trump more than they (love icon) great style. Too bad for them!

And Twitter was filled with comments like this one from @SierraWhiskey:

The media and psycho, Hollywood dummies may make fun of our @FLOTUS, but they will NEVER take away her Grace and Dignity!

RT if you stand with me in support for our Beautiful First Lady!

Democrats and their allies in Hollywood and the New York media don’t seem to get that by mocking Mrs. Trump, excluding her from popular culture and refusing her the fashion and style section coverage typically afforded the First Lady they have only helped to heighten her appeal to the Trump base.

But California Republican DeAnna Lorraine @DeAnna4Congress pretty much broke Twitter by tweeting:

America needs far more women like Melania Trump and far less like Cardi B.

The social media-driven debate over Mrs. Trump’s outfit, recent additions to the Rose Garden and the use of the White House for her remarks vastly overshadowed what she actually said, which had the media listened, presented a stark and vivid contrast with the remarks her predecessor, Michelle Obama, delivered last week to the Democrats’ convention.

In Mrs. Obama’s view America is mired in systemic class and racial injustice that can only be fixed by completely remaking American society.

In contrast to the dark view of her country and her fellow citizens Mrs. Obama presented, Mrs. Trump gave a heartfelt homage to the country that welcomed her as an immigrant from Slovenia.

Hers was a speech that not only supported her husband, but reinforced the message of the many other immigrants who have been on the stage during this year’s Republican National Convention:

Growing up as a young child in Slovenia, which was under communist rule at the time, I always heard about an amazing place called America — a land that stood for freedom and opportunity. As I grew older it became my goal to move to the United States and follow my dream of working in the fashion industry. My parents worked very hard to ensure our family could not only leave and prosper in America, but also contribute to a nation that allows for people to arrive with a dream and make it reality…

It is still one of the proudest moments in my life, because with hard work and determination I was able to achieve my own American dream. As an immigrant and a very independent woman, I understand what a privilege it is to live here and to enjoy the freedoms and opportunities that we have. As first lady, I have been fortunate to see the American dream come true over and over again…

The past 3-1/2 years have been unforgettable. There are no words to describe how honored, humbled and fortunate I am to serve our nation as your first lady…

In eight years, no one ever heard Michelle Obama say she was “honored, humbled and fortunate” to serve our nation as First Lady.

Mrs. Trump’s immigrant success story and her gracious expression of appreciation for America were a great way to end night two of the Republican National Convention, but the greatest political benefit may have come courtesy of her treatment at the hands of Democrat social media bullies which served to reinforce the view of many Americans that Democrats are too cruel to be trusted with the power of the federal government.
