she said she would take on cyber bullies. we can sure use her help with her husband.
"Google reports that search queries about First Lady Melania Trump...have exploded. On Sunday, August 6, the question “Where is Melania Trump?” surged, up more than 400 percent that usual...according to Google Trends." (Inquisitr).
We think the Trumps' marriage, or the whereabouts of Melania on any given day, are MOSTLY none of our damn business. But it's worth mentioning that the First Lady is in a unique position to monitor and counsel Trump to abandon his unpresidential tweets and behavior. It's not her responsibility - but it would be nice.
"Mrs. Trump, who was born in Slovenia, has said she is fluent in six languages, and in addition to conversing in French in Paris, she spoke Italian with the pope when she and her husband visited Rome." (The Washington Post). So far, the First Lady has presented herself with poise and grace, which is in a lot of ways is the opposite of her husband's behavior. But as important issues like the Trump Administration's proposed draconian Immigration policy and Donald Trump's often unstable behavior, people who respect the First Lady are hoping she can offer some reason to the White House.
In a recent article, Romper wondered if Melania would have even been allowed into the U.S. under Trump's new immigration policy. "Melania obtained her green card in 2001, four years before she married Donald, and became a U.S. naturalized citizen in 2006. While many green cards are associated with marriages, Melania's green card was self-sponsored. She obtained hers for her "extraordinary ability or achievement" as a model, according to The Washington Post, which is one of the standards of how H-B1 visas and green cards are issued by United States." (Romper).
There is something to say when a president, who is intimately aware of the promise the United States offers immigrants like his wife, would be so unforgiving on the issue.
To a large degree, we believe the family members of elected officials should be off limits to question or criticize. Following that rule, we offer a simple appeal. Melania, if you are reading this, if you are serious about curbing cyber bullying, we can sure use your help with your husband.
