It’s no secret that I detest Melania Trump. I concede that I come across as catty in my takedowns of her and you know what? I really don’t care, either. Initially, I thought she was a tasteless phony and grifter just like her husband, who lied about holding university degrees she doesn’t have, winning beauty contests she didn’t win, and speaking foreign languages she doesn’t speak. But the day she sent her not-so-cryptic and cruel message to the world via writing on a cotton pea coat, was completely the last straw for me. Weirdly enough, the clothing line that made the coat also used to make tee shirts and handbags containing Nazi symbolism. If you didn’t catch that story, read it now.
In it, I cite to an article by New York Times columnist Charles M. Blow, called “The King and Queen Of Cruelty,” which is who Donald and Melania Trump are, plain and simple.
Be that as it may, press releases comparing Melania to Jackie Kennedy began coming out right after the election, and Trump dragged that old chestnut out of the fire Friday morning on Fox News.
They’re all so thirsty for class but think it’s all flash+artifice and don't understand the value of being sophisticated or philanthropic. She thought the US should welcome her+her parents but supports birtherism and cruelty toward immigrants in crisis.

Yes remember when Jackie O questioned the citizenship of Martin Luther King. Oh that's right only Melania did to President Obama. She's is bad as he is.

Give me a break there is one "Jackie O". With all due respect to Melania, not even a close second. Dream on toxic Trump.

LOL. No, Jackie O married an actual billionaire, not a pretend one.

Jackie had class. Jackie was not a sex worker.

And there’s nothing wrong with being a sex worker. Not unless you’re claiming to really be the Queen of the Netherlands, or some such fable.
Interesting slip of the tongue, calling Melania “it,” eh? Remember that Twilight Zone episode, where a guy was all alone on a planet and then somebody sent him a woman — and it turned out to be a robot? That would explain Melania’s stiffness and rigidity in photographs. Good to know.
