Donald Trump is a really ‘honest’ man and president, his wife, First Lady Melania Trump claims but pretty much everyone else except for his diehard supporters would obviously disagree! While at the 2020 Republican National Convention, Melania praised her husband for his honesty and now, people on social media are wondering whether or not she even knows who she’s married to!
A lot of Americans tuned in to the convention for Melania’s speech, waiting to see if another plagiarism scandal would happen like in 2016.
Would she copy Michelle Obama’s speech that the former First Lady just delivered last week?
While that did not happen, Melania obviously not making that mistake twice, she did say something that left people a bit confused.
Was she really talking about the same Donald Trump we all know and ‘love?’
During the 45 minutes long speech, Melania had only positive things to say about her husband and his administration and what they’ve done for the country for the past three or four years.
One of the words she used to describe him was ‘honest’ which immediately started a storm of memes and confusion on social media.
"We all know Donald Trump makes no secrets about how he feels about things," first lady Melania Trump says at #RNC2020 "Total honesty is what we deserve as citizens from our president. Whether you like it or not, you always no what he's thinking." pic.twitter.com/H66DTSHjFt

Most voters were understandably baffled upon hearing that adjective said in the same sentence as the name of the POTUS.
After all, this comes after The Washington Post concluded that Donald Trump had made more than 20,000 misleading or downright false claims ever since he was elected as president in 2017.
And yet, Melania Trump told voters that ‘We all know Donald Trump makes no secrets about how he feels about things. Total honesty is what we deserve as citizens from our president. Whether you like it or not, you always know what he’s thinking.’
Here are some of the reactions to that statement: ‘Have you ever met your husband?’ / ‘Melania described a fantastic president… patriotic, caring, and honest. He sounds wonderful, but I have no idea who she’s talking about. Is she supporting #BidenHarris2020?’ / ‘I’m not being a smart-ass here, but I’d REALLY love to know how Melania could say some of those things with a straight face — really! …thats a talent.’
