First Lady Melania Trump got huge laughs during a campaign event on Saturday in West Bend, Wisconsin after she poked fun at Joe Biden for hiding in his basement.
Excerpt from Real Clear Politics:
“After my husband became president, it was so disheartening to see the once proud integrity of American journalism became a political propaganda tool of swamp politicians,” Melania Trump said. “For the last four years, the media has recklessly attacked my husband, choosing gossip and anonymous sources over substance and this success of our nation. The media created a disordered picture of my husband and treated all his supporters with equal disdain.”
“I love that guy,” a female supporter yelled out.
“They continue to do so today even though they have all benefited from his strong economy, national security and safer borders,” Melania continued. “The media’s promotion and use of divisive language has led to open disdain and hostility towards voters like you and me. Deplorables, they called us. People, including our youth, have been harassed for wearing trump apparel. Members of our staff have been thrown out of restaurants for serving their country, many members of our staff receiving threatening mail at their home addresses. This is the tolerant left.”
“Now, as the high stakes of this election become clear, Big Tech companies have started politically censoring us,” the First Lady said. “While the president has been working hard for you. The Democrats, supported by the partners in the media have wasted American time and taxpayer dollars on the Russian hoax, then the sham impeachment.”
“When will it stop?” she asked.
“Joe Biden, Kamala Harris and the rest of the Democrats and the media have spent almost the same amount of time and energy attempting to impeach my husband as we have spent fighting Covid-19. Yeah, Joe Biden says he could do a better job leading our great nation.
“Apparently, when you hide in the basement, you feel safe communicating your wishful thinking,” Melania said to laughs. “I think it’s obvious to the American people that after Joe Biden’s spent decades in Congress and eight years in the White House got nothing done, why will this time be any different?”
“Joe Biden said it would be a dark winter. That is not a statement from a leader,” Trump said. “He wants to make us hide in fear in our basements, rather than work bravely in our communities to find lasting solutions.”
We’re truly blessed to have this lovely woman as our first lady!
