WAS SHE SENDING A CODED MESSAGE TO VOTERS TO REJECT HER HUSBAND'S HATEFUL CAMPAIGN RHETORIC?

MELANIA IMPLICITLY REPUDIATES TRUMPISM IN SPEECH

Melania Trump gives a speech

Melania Trump, wife of the Republican nominee Donald Trump, gave a speech Nov 3 in Berwyn, Pa. that sounded like an implicit endorsement of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton than support for her husband.

In a much quoted section of her speech, Mrs Trump said the following:

Technology has changed our universe. But like anything that is powerful, it can have a bad side. We have seen these already. As adults, many of us are able to handle mean words, even lies. Children and teenagers can be fragile. They are hurt when they are made fun of or made to feel less in looks or intelligence. This makes their life hard and can force them to hide and retreat. Our culture has gotten too mean and too rough, especially to children and teenagers. It is never OK when a 12 year old girl or boy is mocked, bullied, or attacked. It is terrible when that happens on the playground.

The irony was not lost to with entire cybersphere that her husband, Donald Trump, is the biggest cyberbully the country has ever seen. In fact the New York Times compiled a list of all the people, places and things Trump has insulted on Twitter. We have to hand it to her though, she hid the ball a little by qualifying the kind of bullying she does not approve of, the one against kids and teens. Adults, they are fair game. There is the plausible deniability.

Was this intentional on her part to send a coded message to voters to reject Donald Trump and the mean Trumpism that has gripped the nation ever since Trump decided to run for president?

Mrs Trump listed a lot of qualities needed to make our country great again,

We need to teach our youth American values; kindness, honesty, respect, compassion, charity, understanding, cooperation.

This line is another example that Mrs Trump gave in her speech that must be a coded message message for voters to reject her husband.

Trump does not possess any of the above values, he is not kind or compassionate, he mocked and imitated the hand movements of a reporter with disability. He attacked a grieving Gold Star mother and he is on record for objectifying and shaming women.

He is not honest, his lies and dishonesty comes in all shapes and sizes. Politifact has rated more than 70 percent of his statements and factually false. He lied about seeing thousands and thousands of Muslims cheering the 9/11 attacks and he continues to lie that he never supported the Iraq war.

He lacks respect, has poor understanding of issues, he speaks disrespectfully about minorities, calling undocumented Mexican immigrants rapists and murderers and he speaks about African Americans in negative stereotypes, which indicates he does not have an understanding of their culture and he doesn’t care to learn.

Trump is not charitable: reports indicate that he uses other peoples money to prop himself as charitable and he rarely donates the amounts of money he pledges.

Trump does not cooperate: He has single-handedly destroyed the Republican Party as we know it. That does not mean the Republican Party did not deserve it, we all know they have lost their way and it was about time somebody came about and ended the nonsense the current Republican call conservatism. Trump refused to follow any Republican rules and instead charted his own way taking the base with him. While he will need to learn some cooperation to succeed in politics, on this score, the destruction of the Republican Party, it’s kudos to him.

Mrs Trump is definitely not a mean person. She has carried herself with class and she sounds like a genuine person. There is a possibility that somewhere in her, she know Trump is a jerk and he will suck as president. Could this be her way of letting the world know what she really thinks? By giving a speech about qualities that Americans should value that she very well knows her husband lacks?

Her mission to end cyberbullying, could that be a way to tell the world she does not approve of her husband’s twitter warfare?

Below is the full transcript of Melania Trump’s speech

TRUMP: Thank you first lady of Indiana, Karen Pence. Thank you, that was very nice.

AUDIENCE: I love you! (APPLAUSE)

TRUMP: Thank you.

(APPLAUSE)

AUDIENCE: We love you!

TRUMP: We love you, too.

(LAUGHTER)

TRUMP: What a wonderful welcome, here in Pennsylvania. It has been more than 500 days since my husband, Donald Trump, announced he would run for president of the United States.

(APPLAUSE)

I remember that day in June, 2015 vividly, surrounded by our family and speaking to an audience of millions, Donald Trump is to campaign on behalf of those who feel the system is broken and does not work for them. Those who just want a fair shape and opportunity for a better education, a better paying job, a better future.

(APPLAUSE)

He pledges to restore integrity for Washington, and respect for America abroad. This is not an ordinary campaign, it is a movement.

(APPLAUSE)

A movement in which people still included, inspired and involved. I have seen it firsthand, we are deeply grateful to the millions of Americans who believe in my husband, because they know he believes in you.

(APPLAUSE)

He believe in America and he will make a fantastic president of these United States.

(APPLAUSE)

I come here today to talk about my husband, Donald, and his deep love and respect for this country, and all of its people. I have come here to talk about this man I have known for 18 years. And I have come here today, to talk about our partnership, our family, and what I know for sure in my heart about this man, who will make America great again.

(APPLAUSE)

I know exactly what that means. I grew up in a small town in Slovenia near a beautiful river and forest. Slovenia is a small country that back then, was under communist rule. It was a beautiful childhood, my parents were wonderful. Of course, we always knew about the incredible place called America. America was the word for freedom and opportunity. America meant if you could dream it, you could become it.

(APPLAUSE)

But I was 10 years old. We learned of a man Ronald Reagan was elected president of the United States of America.

(APPLAUSE)

Before, we would watch what he was saying and doing. President Reagan’s Morning in America was not just something in the United States. It began to feel like morning around the world, even in my small country. It was a true inspiration to me. Later, I lived in Milan and Paris, working hard as a fashion model. I worked with people from all over the world. Fashion is a business of glamour, but it is also hard work. There are ups and downs, high highs, and ridicule, and rejection too.

I loved my work, and as a young entrepreneur, I wanted to follow my dream to a place where freedom and opportunity were in abundance. So of course, I came here. Living and working in America was a true blessing, but I wanted something more. I wanted to be an American. After a 10 year process, which included many visas and a green card, in 2006, I studied for the test and became a U.S. citizen.

(APPLAUSE)

It is the greatest privilege – it is the greatest privilege in the world. I’m an immigrant, and let me tell you, no one values the freedom and opportunity of America more than me, both as an independent woman, and as someone who immigrated to America.

(APPLAUSE)

Love for this country is something we need immediately shared with when I met Donald. He loves this country, and he knows how to get things done, not just talk. He certainly knows how to shake things up, doesn’t he?

(APPLAUSE)

He knows how to make real change. Make America great again, is not just some slogan. Is it what has been in his heart since the day I met him. Over the years of our marriage, I have watched my husband grow more and more concerned, as he sees American workers suffer. I have watched him get frustrated as he sees parents struggle to care for children while working outside the home. I have watched him as he sees over and over again policies that make our country less strong, less secure, and less safe.

Every time my husband learned of a factory closing in Ohio, or North Carolina, or here in Pennsylvania, I saw him get very upset. He could see what was happening, he saw the problems. And he always talked about how he could fix them.

My family is truly blessed. The most important thing we have in our family is health, and love, and loyalty. Donald has built…

(APPLAUSE)

Donald has built a very successful company. The privilege to go to work each day to do a job that he loves along side of his adult children. This is a great blessing for any parent.

He had a great and fulfilling life. But Donald knew he could not sit by any more and watch what was happening in our country. And that is when this campaign, this movement, begun.

(APPLAUSE)

AUDIENCE: Trump, Trump, Trump

TRUMP: As Donald travel the country, he has asked some simple but very important questions. What kind of country do we want?

Do we want a country that is safe with secure borders? Yes.

(APPLAUSE)

Do we want a country where every American gets fair shot? Yes.

(APPLAUSE)

Do we want a country that honors our constitution?

(APPLAUSE)

Do we want a country that honors life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness?

(APPLAUSE)

Do we want a country that respects women and provides them with equal opportunities?

(APPLAUSE)

Do we want a country where every child has access to a good education?

(APPLAUSE)

Do we want our children to be safe and secure and dream big dreams?

(APPLAUSE)

Do we want president who is beholden to no one but you, the American people?

(APPLAUSE)

Yes. Do we want a president who is a fighter for us and will never give up? Yes.

(APPLAUSE)

Then we want Donald Trump to be our president.

(APPLAUSE)

AUDIENCE: Trump, Trump, Trump

TRUMP: People have asked me if Donald sees the president – what kind of first lady will you be? It will be my honor and privilege to serve this country.

(APPLAUSE)

I will be an advocate for women and for children. Let me…

(APPLAUSE)

Let me tell you a little bit more about what that means to me. I’m a full time mother to our son Barron, an incredible boy.

(LAUGHTER)

As his father travels around the country running for president, I’m with our son. We talk a little bit about politics, and a lot about life, homework, and sports.

(LAUGHTER)

Barron has many privileges and advantages. We know how fortunate we are.

Still, I have the same conversations with my son that many of you have with your sons and daughters, and nieces and nephews, grandchildren and godchildren.

I want my little boy to know that he is blessed to have been born in a country that values individual freedom and constitutional democracy. I want our children in this country and all around the world to live a beautiful life, to be safe and secure, to dream freely of love and a family of their own some day.

We need to teach our youth American values; kindness, honesty, respect, compassion, charity, understanding, cooperation. I do worry about all of our children. As we know, now social media is a centerpiece of our lives. It can be a useful tool for connection and communication. It can ease the isolation that so many people feel in the modern world.

Technology has changed our universe. But like anything that is powerful, it can have a bad side. We have seen these already. As adults, many of us are able to handle mean words, even lies. Children and teenagers can be fragile. They are hurt when they are made fun of or made to feel less in looks or intelligence. This makes their life hard and can force them to hide and retreat. Our culture has gotten too mean and too rough, especially to children and teenagers. It is never OK when a 12 year old girl or boy is mocked, bullied, or attacked. It is terrible when that happens on the playground.

And it is absolutely unacceptable when it is done by someone with no name hiding on the internet.

(APPLAUSE)

We have to find a better way to talk to each other, to disagree with each other, to respect each other. We must find better ways to honor and support the basic goodness of our children, especially in social media.

It will be one of the main focuses of my work if I’m privileged enough to become your First Lady.

(APPLAUSE)
