Who cares if she did? It worked. Most presidents don't write their own speeches. Obama didn't write his own speeches.

And whoever wrote that .... was that some kind of weak slam? I smell misogyny in that. Is it somehow a bad thing if Melania can write speeches of that caliber?

Well, he has done ZERO of what he said he would do during his presidential candidacy.

So your logic seems pretty sound to me.

It's going to be fun to see how this is criticized. Actions are one things (so far delivered) Words are another (delivered tonight) Fire up the MSM engines for 55 days of talking points.

We shall i wont hold my breath. If he decides a regime change or intervention in Venezuela, his finished. He lied to his base that he wants to end wars and regime changes. Whats his doing in Venezuela is breaking his promises to his base.

Maduro needs to go, but that should be South America's problem to fix. The only way I'd countenance something is if Venezuela started sending their refugees our way, but then I'd have a bone to pick with every country allowing them to come.
