But nobody's talking about Milania's foreign status are they?

I think the Trump campaign must be fist bumping and congratulating themselves all around. They did, after all, change the conversation from Milania's foreign status to Michelle's speech. If a choice had to be made between the two issues I think it's fair to say plagiarism was the most beneficial choice. The Mighty Wurlitzer plays on--and on.kl

Trump has been anti immigration. Why overlook her immigrant status if she's naturalized? Any attention on immigration is a detraction for Trump because how can he accept one type of immigrant but deny others?

Apparently eastern European immigrants are better than immigrants from elsewhere. He's married two of them.

While opposing it for "others" is a problem I don't think he wants to address--scratch that--he cannot address it without exposing himself.

I mean, considering what kind of mileage the Republicans have gotten for the last eight years out of dark hints about President Obama's background and upbringing, they should welcome the opportunity to examine Melania's background of being born under communism and inculcated with a communist upbringing.

Instead everybody's focusing on trivialities. The blatant dishonesty of the plagiarism is straight out of the republican playbook.

Remember how the Republicans bashed Teresa Heinz? For being "Euro". Hypocrites, scummy hypocrites.

I don't care Melania's background. In fact, don't really care about her at all. She's gonna have no power in a Drump WH...he's the assclown we have to beat.
