This Is My Shocked Face: Now It Looks Like Melania Trump Lied About Graduating From College, Too

shocked face

This is about two posts too many about Donald Trump’s trophy wife for a month, never mind a day, but it’s got to be relayed.

The Huffington Post reveals that Melania’s claim that she was awarded “a degree in design” appears to be a lie.

Despite Melania Trump’s professional biography  that includes this…

Melania degree

The Huffington Post did some digging after the plagiarized speech last night. You see, this is the danger in betraying trust: once people know you are faking something, they wonder if you are faking everything. (I would say that being married to Donald Trump is evidence, all by itself,  enough to prompt suspicion.) They found that Slovenian journalists Bojan Pozar and Igor Omerza wrote in their published biography of the former fashion model—yes, she has a book written about her, and its called “Melania Trump ― The Inside Story: From a Slovenian Communist Village to the White House”— that she “became and remained a college dropout” after leaving the University of Ljubljana’s architecture school following her freshman year.

They write…

In her freshman year, the 19-year old Melania Knauss attended lectures on the following subjects: elements of architecture, fine arts, fundamentals of technical mechanics, architectural construction, descriptive geometry, mathematics, and an ideological (read “communist”) elective credit called “General Partisan Resistance and Social Self-protection”. Melania would have made it to her sophomore year, even having failed 2 exams, but she was supposed to have gotten and held a 1-month internship and kept a journal about it….Later, in America, after meeting Donald Trump and officially becoming his partner, Melania Knauss told the media that she got her degree in architecture and design. This was almost certainly done in consultation with Trump and his advisors, as they were desperate to give off the impression that the Slovenian model was not just beautiful, but also smart and well-educated.

How long will it take for people to wise up to Donald Trump? Nothing about him is trustworthy—not his words, not his wealth, not his claims of success, not his university, not his steaks, and not even his wife.

Hillary Clinton just lies.

Donald Trump IS a lie.

  1. After the absolute shock that the Trump campaign would release something that was less than factual, I’m not sure if I’ll be able to get up tomorrow morning, I’ll likely just lay in bed groaning until the shocking pain to my psyche can somehow be resolved.

  2. Does anyone else have the feeling that somehow all we’ve been cast in a Woody Allen movie, made from a screenplay he wrote decades ago but was never filmed, because it was thought that it would not be believable enough that such pathetic candidates could never reach the point of being a party’s nominee for President?

  3. Why would someone title a book “Melania Trump ― The Inside Story: From a Slovenian Communist Village to the White House”, before the subject has actually, ya know, made it to the White House?

    “Ann Romney: Mission Accomplished
    The First Lady on the First Page of Mitt’s Binder…and His Heart”

  4. I’m sure that there are many high school graduates who could have come up with something more original. Her speech reading (separate from who wrote it) didn’t make me even think she attended a live university. Perhaps her only degree is one from the highly respected Trump U, exemplifying the writing, rhetoric, value and trustworthiness of said programs.

  5. They both are lies. Melania only made it through 1 year of the university in Slovenia. However Melania would make a very attractive first lady with her past nude photo shots as evidence. Hillary is a liar with an agenda: To keep Obama’s destruction of the country going on as long as possible.

  6. I have an odd vision of Trump, like some kind of orange-haired Bane, addressing Clinton like so:

    “Oh, you think deceipt is your ally, you merely adopted the lie. I was born in it, molded by it. I didn’t see the truth until I was already a man; by then, it was nothing to me but blinding! The falsehoods betray you, because they belong to me. I will show you where I have made my home, I will be preparing to bring prevarication.”

    Of course, Trump could never hope to be as well-spoken as Bane.

  7. I tried to find the scene in “The Producers” movie where the girl says “We go to motel now?” as it seemed very reminiscent of the third Mrs. Trumps elocution, but all I could find was this;

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kHmYIo7bcUw the “Springtime for Hitler and Germany” production number.

    Nice to have a good laugh these days. The audience shots could probably be spliced into the coverage of The Donald’s production in Cleveland and no one would notice.

    May be time to revive the old “Mistake on the Lake” term for the current Cleveland carryings-on.

  8. How long will it take for people to wise up to Donald Trump? Nothing about him is trustworthy—not his words, not his wealth, not his claims of success, not his university, not his steaks, and not even his wife.

    I think we all know by now that trustworthiness has fallen very far down the list of qualifications for the White House. To be honest, this has been a long time coming. The act of promising the moon and delivering a mouse has been de rigueur in politics now for quite some time. Apparently, many people have decided that saying the right thing is now much more important to their vote than actually doing the right thing. How much more important has never been more evident than the Trump candidacy.

    Honestly, this is just exactly what we should expect. Wolf-crying and promise-lying have given the electorate an excuse to easily rationalize not rejecting this sort of craziness. In fact, it seems that most, or at least far too many, openly embrace it.

    Polarization has made it fashionable to defend even the most egregious ethical violation in the name of the “greater good” (scare quotes advisedly applied) by the right no less than the left. “Ends justify the means” has clearly invaded the thinking of the Republicans just as much as the Democrats with the only real difference being the fact that the Democrats openly embrace it, while the Republicans dissemble.
    Donald Trump has arguably changed our politics forever for the worse. Now, more politicians will start spouting fact-free nonsense off the cuff, transparently dissimulating without even a fig leaf of truth, and making up qualifications out of the ether. After all, why not, since Trump has proven conclusively that it can get you at least to the door of the White House. It’s only a matter of time (perhaps only months, in fact) until it gets someone in.

    I remember, though it was apparently back in the Neolithic period, when I used to enjoy party conventions. Today, all I can do is lament them and their posh, polished, transparent vapidity.

    What will become of us if either of these … people get elected? I just don’t know. I never thought I would think this, let alone say it, but I have never been more comforted by the fact of my mortality.

    • Primaries are a dumb thing. We need to turn back the clock and get rid of them. I’ll take smoke-filled rooms any day and assume self-interest will deliver a fairly viable candidate.

  9. I think that people DO generally realise that Trump is a liar, maybe even more of a liar than Clinton, and that’s why their negatives are so high, they don’t even have a solid base of support from their own parties. This is the election of the hate vote: “No, I don’t like or trust the person I’m voting for, but the other person is worse.”

    By what measure? Not a policy driven one…. I think this is a cultural battle, that the idiocy that Progressives have driven over the last decade consisting of -its and -phobics, safe space culture and triggering, race baiting, bad economic policy, and an awful, awful relationship with reality and the truth has driven a significant number of people who normally don’t vote to the polls. We’re going to see up close one of the greatest failings of democracy ever, one of the most blatant examples of the tyranny of the minority by the majority: The unengaged, low-information voters will hate-elect Trump.

      • Isn’t it though? I’m comforted only by the knowledge that he’ll be a modern day Coolidge, and get next to nothing done. He MIGHT build the wall, he MIGHT renegotiate a trade deal or two, but more likely, we’ll have the lamest duck four year presidency ever.

    • We’re going to see up close one of the greatest failings of democracy ever, one of the most blatant examples of the tyranny of the minority by the majority: The unengaged, low-information voters will hate-elect Trump.

      Or fear-elect Clinton. Either way, we all lose.

  10. That’s because I can’t find any A-A pundits, leaders or spokespersons, not to mention activists or politicians, who have publicly opposed or contradicted the prevailing attitude in the community. And black police officers don’t count. When the President says we have to “understand” how the black community feels, that’s a waiver, in my book.

    • Jack, did you see the comment from “Tice with a J ”
      (July 20, 2016 at 6:52 pm)? This page transformed from one of your Melania posts (“This is my shocked face…”) to the Freddie Gray title with no post from you, but retaining the comments from the Melania post.

      • I don’t know what happened. It’s never happened before. The Freddie Gray post, which I worked on for, oh, about two hours, just crashed with the old Melania post, and now has disappeared. I’m sorry. I don’t know what happened. WordPress is messing around with the draft program, and that one was a problem as I wrote it. If anyone know how to do a wayback function and find it, I’d be grateful, because I’m not writing it again.
