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.
