Melania Trump has not escaped the scorn and scrutiny of the American public. In fact, most of her attempts at doing something “First Lady-like” usually crash and burn just like her husband, and this time is no different.
From questionable fashion choices when going to see migrant children at a border detention facility with her infamous “I really don’t care do u?” jacket, to running her sham “Be Best” initiative against cyberbullying while co-oping the most outspoken cyberbully of them all, Melania Trump has served as one of the nation’s biggest disgraces. Despite her best efforts, Melania is no friend to the people, no matter how many nice speeches she plagiarizes. And that is serving as just another reason why her latest message is pissing people off.
As the final days before the election approach us, the Trump campaign is growing desperate for any and all support — which is why we got this horrible, three minute long video of Melania blandly reading off a teleprompter, saying Trump loves the gays.
The video starts off with the First Lady claiming that her husband, Donald Trump, is the ultimate “outsider” and wants everyone to prosper (just less than he does). She goes on to say:
“I was shocked to discover that some of these powerful people have tried to paint my husband as antigay or against equality, nothing could be further from the truth. Donald loves helping people and he loves seeing those around him and his country succeed as the leader of the Republican Party and president of the United States, Donald has been clear that gays and lesbians have been treated as he has always treated them, equally.”

This is just bullsh*t. No matter how much she struggles to pretend to have a soul while she reads that teleprompter, it isn’t true. The most recent and egregious proof of it being untrue came in the form of Amy Coney Barrett — she has obvious anti-LGBTQ+ ideologies and certainly will not be an ally to them for years to come.
If you can stand to listen to three minutes of deadpan (this is her being unapologetically outspoken) lying here is the original video:
First Lady Melania Trump supports freethinkers and trailblazers.
She is an ally for equality.

I’m not the only one up in arms over this farce of an attempt at being inclusive. The internet has been treating this video as well as you might expect they would:
The platform he’s running on says he intends to “defend traditional marriage.” He’s literally running for a second term on gay hate. Not even to mention all of the anti-LGBTQ+ policies he’s put in to place since being in office. Quit playin. 😂

She is reading words written for her from a teleprompter. Let me say again. SHE IS READING WORDS WRITTEN FOR HER FROM A TELEPROMPTER. Ally for equality? Hysterical.

Not only is she reading a script, stuck in a model position only showing her “good angle” but she claims Trump is an ally of LGBTQ+ but yet he created a law where transgenders cant serve in the military. Talk is cheap.

“President Obama appointed more than 300 openly LGBTQ people during his two terms.”
Trump appointed one openly gay person.
Trump REMOVED LGBTQ non-discriminatory protections.
Trump is a racist, sexist, homophobic person. https://t.co/ALke1jkJnK
