We’re starting to feel a little bad for Melania Trump.
The third wife of Donald Trump has found herself under a critical spotlight over the past several days following a controversial Republican National Convention speech.
It focused on important topics such as family values and the life lessons parents ought to teach their children.
But it also, admittedly, plagiarized passages from Michelle Obama’s speech at the 2008 Democratic National Convention.
Then, Trump removed her official website from the Internet after questions arose over a college degree she claimed to have earned in Slovenia… despite there being no proof that this actually took place.
On Thursday night, meanwhile, a heretofore unknown Congresswoman from Ohio used the DNC stage to throw a bit of shade at Melania Trump.
Once folks got over the whole stealing-from-Michelle-Obama thing, they turned their focus to the dress Trump donned during her speech.
So much so that the $2,190 off-white Roksanda “Margot” ensemble sold out less than an hour after Trump appeared on television last week.
Fast forward to last night and Rep. Beatty (D-Ohio) coming out on stage at the Wells Fargo Arena, apparently proving to the world that she was one of the lucky few people to get her hands on the outfit.
Talk about a subtle, slick way to troll Trump, huh?
Beatty wouldn’t come right out and admit she was sending Melania a message, however.
She blamed the entire thing on her husband, telling WCMH that he had bought the dress and told her to wear it.
“Now it’s blowing up all over the nation that it’s the same as Mrs. Trump’s, but I don’t know,” she said.
She does, however, know how she feels about Donald Trump.
During her remarks, Beatty called him “the most divisive and ill-prepared candidate we’ve seen in modern times."
