Melania Trump electrified RNC viewers with a powerful, compassionate speech at the Republican National Convention, where she addressed the left-wing riots, the coronavirus, and made the case for her husband’s reelection.
In response, unhinged Joe Biden supporters like Bette Midler mocked her Slovenian accent and called her an “illegal alien.”
During her 26-minute speech, Melania urged leftist thugs to “stop the violence and looting” and assured Americans that President Trump is working tirelessly to defeat the coronavirus amid the Left’s nonstop rioting and torching of Democrat-run cities.
Mrs. Trump appeared ready to do battle against Democrats as she delivered her speech in a form-fitting, military-style ensemble.
“Like all of you, I have reflected on the racial unrest in our country,” the First Lady said. “With that in mind, I’d like to call on the citizens of this country to take a moment, pause, and look at things from ALL perspectives.”
Melania then made an oblique reference to the Left’s false, race-baiting narrative scapegoating the police and urged Americans not to assume that just because a white cop is involved in a shooting, that automatically means it was racially-motivated.
“I urge people to come together in a civil manner,” Mrs. Trump said. “I also ask people to stop the violence and looting being done in the name of ‘justice,’ and never make assumptions based on the color of a person’s skin. Let us remember that we are one nation under God.”

Before addressing the Black Lives Matter/Antifa riots, Melania Trump expressed condolences to everyone affected by the coronavirus:
“My deepest sympathy goes out to everyone who has lost a loved one, and my prayers are with those who are ill or suffering. I know many people are anxious and some feel helpless. I want you to know you are not alone.
My husband’s administration will not stop fighting until there is an effective treatment or vaccine available to everyone.
Donald will not rest until he has done all he can to take care of everyone impacted by this terrible pandemic.”
Melania also urged Americans to take care of each other amid the escalating suicides caused by the one-size-fits-all shutdowns that Democrats rabidly promoted.
“Suicides are on the rise as people who are struggling with loneliness and addiction feel they have nowhere to turn,” Mrs. Trump warned. “Parents, please talk to your children. Teachers and caregivers, pay attention to signs of addiction.”
The First Lady added: “Mothers and parents everywhere, YOU are warriors.”
Along the same vein, Melania said her husband is a warrior who will never stop “fighting for you and your families.”
Like President Trump’s friend, Herschel Walker, Melania said her husband’s relentless work ethic sets him apart from Sleepy Joe Biden:
“I see how hard he works day and night. And despite the unprecedented attacks from the media and the opposition, he will not give up. In fact, if you tell him it can not be done, he just works harder.
Donald is a husband who supports me in all that I do. He has built an administration with an unprecedented number of women in leadership roles. He welcomes different points of view and encourages thinking outside of the box.
We are so grateful that you have trusted him to be your president. We will be honored to serve this incredible country for four more years.”
Melania’s emotional speech was universally praised by Trump supporters. Predictably, Democrats like has-been Bette Midler launched bigoted attacks, slamming Mrs. Trump’s Slovenian accent.
Midler was too obtuse to realize that her taunts spotlight the racist hypocrisy of leftists, who claim to champion immigrants and minorities (many of whom have accents).
Oh, God. She still can’t speak English.

Bette was roasted on Twitter for her left-wing bigotry.
“Xenophobe who speaks one language mocks immigrant who can speak five.”

“No, she’s just speaking with an accent. You, however, are a fool in any language.”

Fox News host Dana Perino — a frequent Trump critic — praised Melania’s stirring speech.
“I feel like America could use more of her, that America would benefit from seeing and hearing more from her,” Perino raved.
“She lights up the room. And I think she can light up the country. I hope going forward the country sees more of her. What a tremendous, tremendous independent woman she is.”
While the second night of the RNC was going on, left-wing rioters burned down Kenosha, Wisconsin in the name of the Marxist Black Lives Matter movement.
