Melania Trump was trending earlier tonight because blue-check libs were angry after she appeared not to say the Pledge of Allegiance at the 9/11 ceremony in Shanksville, PA:

Some of the hate directed at the first lady:
Melania ain’t say 1 line of that Pledge of Allegiance…

Some are suggesting she didn’t know the words:
what seems strange is that, even if Melania didn't know the words to the Pledge of Allegiance, she would have made more of an effort to participate, as virtually anyone would do. such listlessness, indifference–we yearn for the faux-boyish "sincerity" of the Bushes, at least. https://t.co/ys8asMqk0o

Why are you unwilling to say the pledge of allegiance, Melania? Are you bored? Un-American? Do you just not care about commemorating the dead?

Melania can’t even recite the Pledge Of Allegiance and you’re going to tell me that fucking birther racist asshole speaks any languages.

Stay classy, libs:
She barely speaks English. You can’t expect her to have memorized the pledge. ?
