Amid plagiarism scandal, Melania Trump caught lying about her college education too

Just when you were wondering if there could possibly be a way for Melania Trump to look even worse after she got caught plagiarizing parts of her Republican National Convention speech last night from Michelle Obama and Rick Astley, it turns out has it in fact gotten even worse for her. If you’ve heard Trump supporters insist that Melania can’t be as dumb as she pretends to be because she has a college degree in architecture, it turns out that part isn’t true either.

Melania Trump’s official bio says that she has a college degree in “design and architecture,” a claim often repeated by her husband’s fans. But according to extensive research that’s been conducted into her life for the purpose of writing biographies and such, it turns out the real story is that she attended college for a year and then dropped out. That’s not necessarily anything to be ashamed of, as successful people such as Steve Jobs and Bill Gates were also college dropouts. But it’s also not something you want to get caught lying about either.

And so now, even as befuddled Trump campaign bends over backward to try to sweep Melania’s plagiarism scandal under the rug in the unrealistic hope that it’ll somehow go away on its own, now Melania is also facing additional questions about her honesty. Did she write her own official bio which falsely states she has a college degree? Did she sign off on it, knowing it was a lie? Or is this yet another instance of the pathologically lying Trump campaign staff getting caught doing something honest of their own accord? The hole keeps getting deeper.

      Guess you didn’t read any of the 8 committee reports then, just continue to live in denial, it’s a pathetic existence wherein you can’t face facts or the truth when confronted with it

        When all you have is ‘catch-phrase rhetoric’, that’s all you can regurgitate… 🙂

      actually she didn’t so trying to move the goal posts on this makes you look like an idiot

      Not too bright, are you. You hate her; that is your right, not that it will change anything. But she has been exonerated. Suck it up.

    Gee, wonder where she learned how to LIE so convincingly…not!

    • Margaret McLawhorn on July 19, 2016 at 8:31 pm

      She learned to lie the same place Donald J. Trump learned so easily. He lies about everything and wants to take credit for everything, such as taking credit for the convention being held in Cleveland—lie, lie, lie. Donald Trump is far more crooked than Hillary. He cons money out of poor working people chasing a dream. He has no integrity; he doesn’t pay people for work he hired them to do. How can anyone want him to be president? —-Only those easily conned, uneducated, or jut stupid.

        Stupid. That’s exactly it. And stupidity is unfortunately incurable. Their support of a pathological liar & extreme narcissist as well as their belief Trump is on the side of the “little guy” proves their utter idiocy. Trump is an embarassment to our country.

    Just bald face lying

    Did anyone in the Trump campaign think to confirm her backstory, like checking if she finished college? Donald and Melania knew. And they didn’t even have any plan for when this came out. Well if he believes he can kill a person in front of witnesses and still get elected president, then why not lie about everything else? White Privilege! And he calls Hillary Clinton, “Lyin’ Hillary” . What about “Lyin’ Donald”?

    I can’t wait to see what other things Donald lies about. Can we say “Taxes”? I didn’t think this could get any worse but just watching the GOP convention is like watching a huge “Hot Mess”! How can anyone vote for this guy????

    people will vote for him because they are stupid easy to be led followers. Yes Hillary has her issues as well but Trump? This guy is a very dangerous sociapath and if he gets elected he is going to drag this country into the ground. Wake up people! He is not the right guy we need in office. You Trump livers think he is a great business man because he says so. He uses bankruptcy limitless to save his own ass and allows his investors and employees to sink. Basically every business he has opened failed then he lies about the success.
    The guy is evil and Hitler in the making. I know our country has its problem and no politician is our savior. But come on people open your eyes. Please do not vote for that dangerous disrespectful man. Let’s forget the deviding of race, religion etc….and band together to keep that crazy whack job out of office and start trying to repair the damage as ONE nation to better this Country.

    This news is so new even the Trump folks don’t know about it: Melania DOES have a college degree: it’s an honorary degree from Trump University.

    Don’t be confused: Trump wants to be King, not President.

    • Katarina on August 7, 2016 at 10:31 pm

      He reminds me of many historical figures: Caligula, Hitler, George Wallace, etc.

    The bigger question is either Donald Trump signed off on her website because she lied to him about having a degree or he is as interested in her background as he is about helping Americans. Either way it shows how completely unqualified he is. By the way, how dumb to you have to be to have stated that she graduated from the “University In Slovenia”. You don’t need a google search to realize that there are no Universities “In” anywhere. And even if it was a typo, a google search would also show the University ‘of’ Slovenia does not even exist. I’d like to see Trump’s windbag mouth which tries to wash over every gaffe he makes on virtually a daily basis, explain away that one. He won’t. Why? Because this is the same man who told his entire campaign to tell the press that his wife did “not” borrow any phrases from Michelle Obama’s speech. She maybe be his Queen, trapped in his golden tower… but, like Cleopatra, she is also The Queen of a kingdom her husband is happy to rule over: Denial.

    Melania plagarises her speech and lies on her resume. America, please welcome Melania Trump as America’s new first lady….appaulse….our new President says….”I will beat the piss out of anyone that questions my wife’s credentials!”. It’s great to life in America!
