First Lady Melania Trump took the stage on Tuesday night to endorse the President. She spoke frankly, in a tone that is notably different from that of her husband and his Twitter feed.
Mrs. Trump acknowledged the devastating effects of the pandemic, and promised her husband would not stop fighting for a treatment or vaccine. She spoke of our problems of race by admitting that we are “not proud of parts of our history.” For this solution, she looked less to her husband and more towards the public asking us all to not judge others “based on their skin color.”
It has never been her style to spread fear in order to garner votes and even if you dislike the new White House rose garden, it is hard to argue that she has style. She was generally well received.
Previous speakers took up the tone of Night 1 and ripped on Joe Biden and the libs. Black Republican Attorney General Daniel Cameron of Kentucky called Biden a “backwards thinker.” Eric Trump falsely claimed that Biden wants to defund the police when Biden has explicitly said he is not for that.
Serving Secretary of State Mike Pompeo spoke remotely from Jerusalem, breaking tradition that someone from this office should show partisan support while representing our country elsewhere. Diplomats are normally barred from engaging in politics. This cute little move earned him an investigation by the House Foreign Affairs Committee’s subpanel on oversight.
