Team Trump Does Damage Control by Dumping Melania Trump's Website

Planet Trump basically exists in another realm of reality, for all intents and purposes. It’s an alternate reality where truth is relative, and what you hear one moment, may very well change the next.

Apparently, part of the alternate reality that was created on Planet Trump had to do with Trump’s third wife, Melania, and this long-pushed narrative that she has a degree in architecture from the University of Ljubljiana, in Slovenia.

Yeah. About that…

Her website said she earned the degree, but a book about her life, which was released earlier this year, claimed she left the university after one year to pursue her modeling career.

“Melania Trump: The Inside Story” claimed her husband, GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump, and his advisers embellished the potential first lady’s education because “they were desperate to give off the impression that the Slovenian model was not just beautiful, but also smart and well-educated.”

I get it. Not everybody is cut out for college. Some are better suited for “modeling” in various stages of undress.

You have to know where your strengths are.

Now, however, the website that has long touted Melania Trump’s academic accomplishments has apparently been dumped, and any who try to visit MelaniaTrump.com are redirected to Trump’s campaign site.

While Trump’s camp will deny they lied about Melania’s background, you have to admit the timing of removing her website is suspect.
