Melania Weighs In on NYT Op-Ed with Brilliant Lesson on America’s History
But perhaps one of the most illuminating responses has come from First Lady Melania Trump. Born in “1970, in Novo Mesto, Slovenia (then part of communist Yugoslavia),” Biography notes that she “is said to be fluent in the Slovenian, English, French, Serbian and German languages, with other outlets reporting that she speaks Italian, as well.”
The First Lady wrote, “Freedom of speech is an important pillar of our nation’s founding principles and a free press is important to our democracy. The press should be fair, unbiased and responsible.”
“Unidentified sources have become the majority of voices people hear about in today’s news. People with no names are writing our nation’s history. Words are important, and accusations can lead to severe consequences.”
“If a person is bold enough to accuse people of negative actions, they have a responsibility to publicly stand by their words and people have the right to be able to defend themselves.”
She closed her statement by lowering the boom. “To the writer of the oped — you are not protecting this country, you are sabotaging it with your cowardly actions.”
Our foreign-born, non-native-English-speaking First Lady just schooled a whole lot of people on American history. And she did it in English.
