First lady with an accent?

The former Slovenian model, Melania Trump, is:

Beautiful. Checked.

Has an accent. Checked.

Going to be the first lady. Unchecked, indefinitely!


I have no doubt that all American comedians, regardless of their political agenda,  are praying day and night to see Donald Trump be a president. He will provide them with materials they never dreamed of before. Just the thought of it…

    1. I hear you. For the sake of American citizens, legal immigrants in America and the rest of the world he better stays on his “reality” show.

  1. It will never happen. Fortunately, even if some Americans were that foolish, he wouldn’t get elected, because more Americans have a problem with his “family values”, and with anyone foreign born and with foreign connections. Oh, wait, those are Republicans, he might get elected.😦

    More impressive than the accent in that clip, was the eyeshadow, and how she managed to stay on message so well–the perfect political wife!😦

    1. Beside his “family values”, can you imagine the Tea party electing a president whose wife has an accent🙂
      Adding to that she came from a country which once was a socialist state, even if that was long time ago. Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh and the other foreigners haters would have a heart attack. Obama is still considered a Foreigner Muslim by many.

      1. Chiara and Jaraad, as a Republican with some Tea Party leanings, all fun aside, this is a little Over The Top. Foreign haters? I think it has to do with illegal aliens living off welfare, which I have a problem with too.

        Chiara is right on the family values problems. It’s not his foreign-born wives accents, it’s their bimbo-ness. The eye-shadow doesn’t help, indeed.

        It’s really his comb-over that will lose us😉

        (Jaraad, you may have noted this tidbit which will continue to fuel the Prez is a Muzlim meme:

        “President Obama failed to release a statement or a proclamation recognizing the national observance of Easter Sunday, Christianity’s most sacred holiday.

        By comparison, the White House has released statements recognizing the observance of major Muslim holidays and released statements in 2010 on Ramadan, Eid-ul-Fitr, Hajj, and Eid-ul-Adha.

        The White House also failed to release a statement marking Good Friday. However, they did release an eight-paragraph statement heralding Earth Day. Likewise, the president’s weekend address mentioned neither Good Friday or Easter[…]

        In 2010, Obama was criticized for releasing an all-inclusive Easter greeting. He reached out to Jews, Muslims, Hindus, and people of no faith at all in a statement about a holiday that is uniquely Christian.”

        He may not be a Muslim, but he certainly isn’t much of a Christian either.

        1. Kinzi,
          In my comment below, which I posted before your second comment, I noted that I am not generalizing about the Republicans. My comment about foreign haters was for sure not about Republicans in general. Some Muslim Arab Americans I know are supportive of the Republican parties. My comment was targeted to Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Michael Savage and Tea Party guests on Fox news who clearly spread hatred messages towards foreigners or to be more specific brown Americans (Indians, Pakistanis, Middle Eastern). I am sorry if you think my comment was over the top. But I really didn’t mean to generalize. I wrote below “Although as a foreigner, I disagree with them on issues related to immigration and foreign policy I like that they stand for themselves to defend some values that others fought against.” I think this should count as a compliment, no?🙂

          Regarding the religion of Barack Obama I don’t believe in conspiracy theory including the many ones we have in the Middle East🙂

          1. Samar, it isn’t that in particular. It’s that his version of Christianity is at odds with any other experience or practice I have ever heard of. Ignoring Easter , the pinnacle of Christian theology, while so many doubt his faith was just stupid on his part. Unless he wants to keep fueling conspiracy theories. Especially since he has sent special greetings to three Muslim holidays in 2010 and made a very big deal of Earth Day.

            See Chiara’s mention of the lack of validation of his previous Muslim experience. Even though I chose well in becoming a Christian, it doesn’t invalidate much of what I learned that was good from my pantheist parents. Technically, since he was born to a Muslim father and was adopted by a Muslim stepfather, according to Islam he is a Muslim, and now an apostate. That is not a step a Muslim would make lightly. Converts from Islam to Christianity are very confused by this, and his lack of concern of other converts who face apostasy and blasphemy charges.

            His ‘conversion’ story just isn’t a typical testimony, and his involvement with Rev. Wright’s church is very odd. His spotty church attendance indicates a Christmas/Easter Christian, which means he went from being a luke-warm follower of one faith to a similar temp in another, which speaks to me of political expediency, not faith.

            A Muslim who does not pray according to the law, or fast, or go to Friday prayers, nor stand for the rights of other Muslims would probably not be considered a Muslim by contemporaries.

            Here is a little example of the odd things that get by his notice, what his decoraters put on their Christmas tree: the face of China’s Mao Zedong, blamed for the deaths of 50 to 80 million of his countrymen, graces an ornament on the White House Christmas tree for President Obama’s first holiday season in residence. The tree also features an ornament adding Obama to Mount Rushmore and images such as the “transvestite” character “Hedda Lettuce,”

            He can believe whatever he wants, he was not by any means elected due to his belief system, but he has done very little to bring clarity to confusion. He seems to live on a different plane, and it has nothing to do with his race or his faith.

            1. Kinzi, I see your point about Easter. I guess I never understood the full importance of Easter. (My mom isn’t religious and neither is her family)

              I do want to clarify that a Muslim who doesn’t go to Friday prayer, doesn’t make them a non-believer.

              I do agree, he has mishandled Islam’s influence in his life. I think there are a lot of factors that we don’t consider. He has advisors and they could be mishandling it as well, obviously, that doesn’t excuse him from anything but I think we need to take into consideration other things as well.

              No one knows what he really thinks or why he does what he does. No matter what he says or does it could be mishandled and misunderstood. I also think he is conflicted; he is trying to defend the fact that he is a Christian while still trying to reach out to Muslims and it’s just getting confusing.

              I disagree, I do think his race and faith have something to do with it. This wouldn’t be an issue if he didn’t have Muslim family members.

              1. Samar, I wish that you had known more of Christianity from your mom, but I guess you’ve got an internet auntie to help out now🙂

                You and I know that a Muslim who doesn’t go to Friday prayer can still a believer, but for many, like the hijab, it is a litmus test. For men anyway, some female friends say women shouldn’t go at all.

                President Obama is a Third Culture Kid, TCK. That is a root of many of his issues, that of identity. He has a mindset that is just different and people don’t know how to handle this. His mishandling of issues has nearly almost always defaulted to not addressing them head-on, which is a huge leadership issue and can be a very Eastern way of dealing with conflict..

                I respect your right to disagree, but I will say it again: for me and ALL of my American Republican circle, this was about spending. For my Illinois circle, it was about putting Chicago politics in the White House. Promising so many people so much that was in no way sustainable, we didn’t buy the hope and change sell. Nothing at all to do with race or faith. Calling it racism is a detour from that primary, and on-going issue. He tripled the debt of our country and our economy is on the verge of collapse. There is no way out of this pit.

                If you thought America was imperialist, what until you meet your new owner, China.

                1. Kinzi, Thanks🙂

                  Yes, I understand. I think it’s the same way with Christianity. People have different views of how it should be practiced and what not. Islam is no different.

                  I think no matter what he does or doesn’t do, someone will find fault. I don’t think he handled it well and I wish he would. I think he would have been a good person to help people really understand the concept of being a Third Culture Kid.

                  I don’t agree with all of Obama’s politics but there are some issues that weren’t an issue for other Presidents but are for him. Like his birth place, I would say religion but I can’t discount JFK, he was a catholic after all.

                  I would have to disagree with you about putting this country into more debt, I think that was going on before but he didn’t make the situation better. You know, the whole change and hope thing was a nice thing to say…but I have really lost hope in the ability of a president to make changes and because they can promise all they want but when they get into office, things change. Things come up that they didn’t realize and how can they account for that? There are too many factors that must be taken into consideration, and we don’t.

                  Oh, China has owned us for a while. We are in so much debt to China, it’s not funny anymore.

  2. I have to add that the Republican Party is not all Tea party, GB and RL. Although as a foreigner, I disagree with them on issues related to immigration and foreign policy I like that they stand for themselves to defend some values that others fought against. So, hopefully those are the majority who will stand against Donald Trump and not with him.

    1. Jaraad, thanks I missed this comment.🙂 I had to think twice who GB and RL were, as though they do not represent me enough for me to listen to them, as Chiara says, they claim to be Tea Party pundits.

      I am probably the weird one in my cafeteria-style Tea Party-partisan pickings. But that is also what most of my friends are, across the board in the US.

  3. Oh yeah beauty that is very important…
    i wait the day Zara Salim Davidson be queen

    israel has one, and your oil is running out

  4. I read an article the other day about this. Trump has said countless times that he would like to run for presidency but then pulls out for whatever reason.

    I hope it doesn’t happen! I don’t think he would be good for the future of this country.

    1. Even though I am not an American citizen I do hope he is not serious about running for the presidency.

  5. Kinzi–thanks for your comment and the opportunity to clarify. I was actually thinking of earlier elections when the Bushes ran on family values, and in particular the 2004 election when Kerry was vilified for speaking French, having French cousins (one a prominent Socialist Party politician who deliberately laid low for the time of the US campaign), property in France (family owned), and a polyglot foreign born wife. They also tried to say he had abandoned his clinically depressed first wife, and published a photo of one of his daughters whose dress became see through due to unexpectedly strong lighting (been there, done that, alas in front of the uni football team tryouts). Campaigns are nasty but these are recurrent themes from the right, I appreciate though that the right is far from homogenous.

    If we are voting by hair and economic savvy, Mii Romney would be a good choice. Good family values, but a Mormon which some object to.

    For my 2 cents on Obama’s religion, I think he seriously mishandled the issue of his Muslim heritage. Not only is his biological patternal family Muslim, but his stepfather was Muslim, he was registered under his stepfather’s name and as a Muslim for schooling while in Indonesia, and attended Friday prayers and some religion classes on Islam. Also ith Christian church he joined as a new Christian is a very pro Islamic one or at least overtly pro the Nation of Islam (different, obviously). None of that alters then fact that as an adult he chose Christianity.

    Whoever wrote the bit about his failure to recognize Easter got it wrong. Good Friday is the most important holiday, theologically.

    Thanks for the opportunity to clarify.

    Jaraad–I understand your viewpoint and share your concern about certain prominent Republican and Tea Party pundits.

    And, yes the Donald shows a pattern of marrying former model trophy wives, with Meliana and Ivana both born and raised in former Soviet satellite states. Hmmmmm… LOL😀

    1. Sorry about the typos. The above comment was sent from my iPod.

      That would be Mitt Romney; and Meliana.

      By mishandled, I mean that I think Obama should have been more open about the Muslim contributions to his life, and about his Christianity. All of it was easily found in his book and in institutional records.

    2. Chiara, thanks for clarifying, kteer, as I always appreciate and learn from your superior brainiac.

      I remember the dress-in-the-light picture of Kerry’s detractors, but from what I read, writers focused on his politics, not his wife’s accent.

      Glad we can agree on Romney, he is my choice. Def wins in the hair realm.🙂 Econ savvy wins for me no matter what religion he practices, we are in a bit of a mess and need this.

      Your two cents on Obama’s Muslim background issues would make a great blog post. Except for all the trolls it would bring out on both wings of the religious and political spectrum.

    3. Chiara, forgot the last bit, that according to Christian theology, the Resurrection is the real deal, the main event. Without conquering death by rising from the dead, Jesus was just a well-intentioned and delusional man. The crucifixion was the necessary prelude to the resurrection, as substitutionary sacrifice, but it was His rising that erased sin, shame and guilt for those who believe and trust in Him.

      (of which, Easter eggs and bunnies have nothing to do with)

  6. Thank you all for the wonderful discussion. There is always new things to learn from each other. I appreciate your thoughts and feedback.
