Add another inconsistency to the list…
In the first week of August, there were a lot of stories about Melania Trump,ÃÂ including plagiarism, some racy-ass photos and the fact that she probably lied a lot about her immigration status in the 1990s. And Donald Trump lied when he promised that Melania would give a press conference about her immigration stuff weeks ago, because that hasn’t happened.
So, whatÃ¢â¬â¢s going on this week with Melania? Remember how she probably lied about having a college degree? Well, Racked found a transcript from a 2013 deposition with Melania where she apparently lied under oath about her “degree.” She was asked to describe her Ã¢â¬Åformal educationÃ¢â¬Â and she said:
Ã¢â¬ÅI attended and graduated from design school, from Fashion and Industrial Design School and also attended, graduated from architecture degree, bachelor degree.Ã¢â¬Â
When people dug around, all they could find was that Melania maybe did one year of college before dropping out to become a model. The whole Racked piece is pretty interesting, and shows Melania’s total SKETCH FACTOR.
As for MelaniaÃ¢â¬â¢s Ã¢â¬Åmodeling years,Ã¢â¬Â there are rumors that uh, her modeling was less pictures and more…other stuff. You know, like escorting. Melania is threatening to sue those outlets that ran with those completely unsubstantiated rumors, as referenced by a statement from her lawyer:
Ã¢â¬ÅThis law firm is litigation counsel for Melania Trump. Mrs Trump has placed several news organizations on notice of her legal claims against them, including Daily Mail among others, for making false and defamatory statements about her supposedly having been an Ã¢â¬ËescortÃ¢â¬â¢ in the 1990s. All such statements are 100% false, highly damaging to her reputation, and personally hurtful. She understands that news media have certain leeway in a presidential campaign, but outright lying about her in this way exceeds all bounds of appropriate news reporting and human decency.Ã¢â¬Â
Okay, she probably wasn’t an escort but doesn’t seem that hard to dig up some college records, right? Anything? Let’s not get sidetracked, let’s bring the Trumps down one shady issue at a time, people!
