Taking time out from her current business and professional interests, Melania Trump addressed fans’ questions on Thursday about why her website, MelaniaTrump.com, now redirects to the Trump Organization’s homepage. “The website in question was created in 2012 and has been removed because it does not accurately reflect my current business and professional interests,” she said in a screenshot statement posted to Twitter. The statement, astute readers will note, is only 10 characters longer than Twitter’s 140 character limit.
The Trump campaign today offered a speechwriter as sacrifice for Melania Trump’s plagiarized speech. But in explaining how she, and she alone, ruined the convention, the speechwriter also confirmed that not only was the speech intentionally lifted from Michelle Obama’s address but that Melania was fully aware she was speaking the First Lady’s words.

Tonight at the Republican National Convention, potential first lady Melania Trump delivered the night’s headlining speech in what was her most important moment in the public eye since she married Donald Trump 11 years ago. The speech was praised by hacks on both sides of the aisle (and the middle), though there might unintentionally be a reason for that: As first pointed out by journalist Jarrett Hill, Melania—or more likely her speechwriters—appears to have lifted at least one crucial section of her speech from the one Michelle Obama gave at the 2008 Democratic National Convention.
During a discussion of Melania Trump, who is scheduled to speak at the Republican Nation Convention Monday night, Newt Gingrich pointed out to Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren that Donald Trump’s wife is not only very hot, but also from a place that is not here.
Ted Cruz won the Republican caucus in Utah on Tuesday, the New York Times reports, capturing all 40 delegates. Mitt Romney recorded a get-out-the-vote call for Cruz on Monday, and an anti-Trump PAC encouraging Mormons to vote for the Texas senator promoted a nude photo of Melania Trump on Instagram.
