Heckler Interrupts Melania’s Speech to Say That Donald Trump is ‘Handsome’ and Social Media Disagrees
We reported in mid-August that Trump’s staff was extremely frustrated with Melania. Apparently, they believe that Melania makes Trump seem more human … we aren’t so convinced. Bringing another stiff doesn’t necessarily make someone appear more human. Moreover, being a third wife, former model, doesn’t necessarily shout “soulmate.” But regardless, the campaign wanted her out on the road with Trump. She said “nyet.”
She would happily stand in front of the cameras at the RNC national convention and speak her mind – mostly her own words, this time – because that’s star power. Appearing in Allentown Pennsylvania doesn’t exactly say 5th Avenue in mid-town.
We do not have video from her speech (it will be added when we get it) but here is what we know, this picture was taken earlier today and she doesn’t look well. That is not a sexist comment, we mean healthy well. She had COVID, of course she might not look well! Many people take 3-4 weeks to come back to normal, a lot have headaches, body aches, depression (which is NOT something to be tossed aside) and other issues. What if she is still quite sick and being asked to do this to help “save the campaign?”
Just because he got jacked up with steroids (and god only knows what else) and they appeared to work, does NOT mean that her treatment (which was every bit as elite) was as effective. We are actually feeling some sympathy for her. A first.
We CANNOT know for sure. We cannot emphasize this enough. We have no information on her health. She doesn’t look well.
Is it me or does Melania look very ill in this clip? She looks nauseous and at one point her breathing looks labored. Are they sending her to a rally with COVID? pic.twitter.com/PSkA7sTZc8

We have SOME of her speech, a heckler interrupted to call out Trump as handsome! Now you would think that a heckler might yell out to call her beautiful (given the choice, she wins), but nope, she is stopped with someone saying Trump is handsome:

BUT, there is one bonus. We saw a real smile from Melania, meaning a REAL one. Not faked as in, I am miserable but can’t look it. She seemed genuinely amused. Maybe because she believed it so ridiculous as to be a good joke?
Twitter seemed to think so:
Handsome???? He literally looks like a lumpy yam. We all know she gags at the sight of him!

The media never loved him. They were fascinated by him in the way people are fascinated by a gruesome accident.

Her smile says “I agree.” But her eyes says “Oh god, what am I doing here, where’s my body double?” https://t.co/zy9hyQl7S0
