The so-called tolerant left just can’t resist the low blows.
President Donald Trump’s wife, Melania – like so many proud Americans – was born overseas, and English isn’t her first language.
Normally, the left would rip into anyone who makes a crack about someone’s accent.
But not when it comes to the first lady!
Comic Chelsea Handler, desperate for attention to boost the sagging ratings of her TV show, declared that she would never have Melania Trump on for an interview… because of her accent!
“Melania? To talk about what?” Handler moaned. “She can barely speak English!”
She then proceeded to trash-talk both the first lady and the president, using language The Horn News would never print, and even described certain body parts (you can see where her mind is).
“I don’t respect either one of those people,” she declared.
Handler is hardly the only celebrity to attack Melania. Rapper Nikki Minaj, The Daily Show’s Trevor Noah, and more have all unfairly attacked the first lady at various times.
In fact, this isn’t the first time Handler went after Mrs. Trump. She’s practically obsessed, and has been attacking her for months.
Last year, she declared that Tim Kaine’s speech in Spanish was “still easier to understand than Melania.”
That’s an incredibly hypocritical crack, even as a joke. Handler herself doesn’t speak or understand any language other than English (and, as her foul-mouthed interview shows, maybe a few words in French).
That’s fine; many Americans speak only one language.
But Melania Trump doesn’t speak one language. Nor, for that matter, does she speak two.
In addition to being fluent in her native Slovenian and – despite Handler’s gripes – completely fluent in English, Mrs. Trump also speaks at least three other languages.
She’s fluent in French, Italian and German.
That’s FIVE languages (and from three distinct language families, no less).
Handler sarcastically asked “to talk about what?” The answer: Mrs. Trump can talk about quite a bit, in multiple languages.
While Handler may not “respect” someone with more language skills than herself, it’s a clear sign that Trump, a former model, is more than just a pretty face.
She must have a sharp mind at work in there, too, making her an excellent example for America’s children, where too many are like Handler and never learn a second language.
Handler’s vicious personal attacks on Mrs. Trump are just the latest example of the “tolerant left” going after the president’s family in ways once considered off-limits.
Sure, some family members are fair game for criticism in the hardball world of politics as Ivanka, Eric and Don Jr. have all played active roles in the presidential campaign.
But they’re also going after Trump’s 10-year-old son Barron, despite the fact that White House children of EITHER party are supposed to be off-limits.
And now they’re going after the First Lady, even though she’s said and done nothing controversial and has been a model of grace and elegance.
Maybe that’s why she drives the left nuts!
