This is not shocking at all.
Throughout the election, Melania Trump was repeatedly criticized for lying about her biographical details on her personal website.
The biggest detail that the media fact-checked was her claim to having obtained a degree from a Slovenian university.
“After obtaining a degree in design and architecture at University in Slovenia, Melania was jetting between photo shoots in Paris and Milan, finally settling in New York in 1996,” her website claimed.
The firestorm over the lie led to an attempted cover-up when the website was taken down in July.
But the problem for the Trump team is that the Internet is forever so there are archives of the old website and the contents available for all to see.
And that’s important because Trump’s team created a new updated website to introduce Melania as the next First Lady.
“She would pursue a degree at the University of Ljubljana in Slovenia, but paused her studies to advance her modeling career in Milan and Paris, before moving to New York in 1996,” her biography now claims.
In other words, Melania Trump and her husband LIED about the simple fact that she does not hold a degree.
Here are images of the two biographies side by side for comparison.
Now, it’s important to note that the fact that Melania does not actually hold a degree isn’t the point. The point is that she lied to the American people. She could have simply told the truth and this wouldn’t have been an issue. But she didn’t.
The woman who is about to become First Lady will take on the mantle as a proven liar. That’s pathetic and it’s even more pathetic that Trump supporters didn’t care.
