So much for giving Melania a pass.
Courtesy for NBC News:
First lady Melania Trump on Saturday urged voters to back President Donald Trump to “help prove that the Democrats and media are wrong” in a fundraising email before Election Day.
“Democrats and the opposition media are doing everything they possibly can to discredit Donald with false accusations by spreading their fake news and making it appear that he does not have the support of America’s voter,” she said in the email, which was sent by the Republican National Committee.
“This is a battle we must win together. I’m asking you and other Americans across the country to personally register your support and help prove that the Democrats and media are wrong.”
Here’s the thing about this email, I don’t think that Melania Trump had anything to do with it.
I think like a lot of fundraising emails we all get, they are written by staffers assigned the task and then stamped with a name that voters will recognize and hopefully respond to.
However, that does not mean I am giving Melania a pass here.
After all, if your name is attached to something that you firmly disagree with, it is your duty to make a correction.
She may not have had a hand in the writing of this email, but her silence is a stamp of approval for what it says.
Besides I do not think that Melania Trump is a bird trapped in a gilded cage, I think she is a domesticated housepet who knows that if she wants her owner to keep buying her nice things she better not cringe when he touches her and act like she gives a shit if he lives or dies.
