‘I went by the law’: Melania Trump defends her status as an immigrant

In a rare interview, Melania Trump met with MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski to discuss a wide range of topics including her status as an immigrant.

On “Morning Joe” on Wednesday, Brzezinski presented the GOP candidate’s wife with a list of names used to describe Donald Trump and asked if his stance on Mexico could be seen as insulting.

“No, I don’t feel he insulted the Mexicans,” she replied. “He said illegal immigrants. He didn’t talk about everybody. He talked about illegal immigrants.” She added that although the media initially bashed him, their opinions changed as “he opened conversation that nobody did.”

But, Brzezinski noted, Trump’s rhetoric must upset his wife who was born in Slovenia and came to the U.S. as an immigrant.

“Do you ever think he’s gone too far?” Brzezinski asked.

“I follow the law. I follow the law the way it’s supposed to be,” the former model stated simply.  “I never thought to stay here without papers,” she said, describing the steps of renewing her visa, applying for a green card and then for U.S. citizenship, which she received in 2006.

“So I went by the system. I went by the law and you should do that. You should not just say, okay, let me just stay here and whatever happens happens,” she said.

    Part of the problem is that the MSM and liberals of all stripes seem incapable of distinguishing legal aliens from illegal aliens (or documented vs undocumented, if you’re a candyass who can’t handle facts). I have a theory it’s because they see laws as not applying to them and therefore irrelevant.

    This interview drives a nail in the heads of the stupid Dummycrats. MELANIA WENT BY THE “”LAW”” WHICH IS A STRANGE CONCEPT TO THE DUMMYCRATIC PARTY.

    It will be very nice to finally have a First Lady again after 7 years without one. Moochy was and is the Worst “lady”.

    My wife says the very same thing and she is formerly a Mexican national. She’s now a U.S. citizen and one of Trump’s biggest fans, and was a Trump fan before she even got her citizenship! :o)

    1. I love hearing that. Good for you and her!

    What’s the matter with obeying the law? Why does MSNBC seem so hell-bent on ignoring law?
