Melania Trump was "badly ill-served" by her husband's campaign staff at the Republican National Convention Monday night, New York Magazine political reporter Rebecca Traister says
Aside from the similarities of Trump's speech to one made by Michelle Obama in 2008 — some calling it plagiarism — Traister writes that the address was lackluster.
"She looked beautiful, and spoke pleasantly enough. But the words that came out of her mouth were empty, meaningless," Traister says.
"Melania's task should have been to humanize her cartoonish thug of a mate, whether by offering a clear picture of herself, of him, or of their family life together. But short of offering the names of her sister, the country of her birth, and her interest in 'the incredible arena of fashion,' Melania provided no detail, no specificity.
"Instead, she delivered 20 minutes of sentences that seemed to emerge at random from a Bland Platitude Generator, a disconcertingly large percentage of which aimed to reassure an audience that her husband actually has cared about the United States prior to 2016."
