Turns Out Melania’s Speech Writer Was A Democrat

Well, it took a couple of days for everything to come to light, but finally one of Trump’s staffers took credit for the debacle.  TEGNA investigative reporter Brendan Keefe has learned Meredith McIver is shown as a registered Democrat in Lexis/Nexis, a database of information regularly used by journalists, lawyers and government officials. McIver is an in-house staff writer for the Trump Organization who also has ghostwritten multiple books written by Donald Trump. She has been a registered Democrat since 1996, according to the database.

"First of all, of course she’s a Democrat. This is the kind of thing that Democrats do. Maybe it was sabotage. Maybe it was a lack of ethics. I don’t know. But this has seemed fishy from the beginning. Secondly, and I mean this with all sincerity, why would Donald Trump hire a Democrat to write his wife’s prime time speech? Sure, I understand entertainment. I understand that sometimes a gig is just a gig and that writing a speech might be no different. But it still seems strange, doesn’t it? Unless, of course…well, never mind. It sure does seem like any moderately intelligent person would have known that in the digital age, this sort of thing was going to come out immediately." - Poor Richard
