I put the same story in "Dangers of...", but since it's being followed here...........I wonder if it was her husband's idea. To take some of the attention off of his problems. And to give his supporters something else to complain about.I believe that the business with Ioffe was all her. And Melania is not an idiot; she may not be particularly articulate in her second (third? fourth?) language, but she is capable of thinking for herself.
Whoever set up this event failed her. I am sure the same message would have gone over much better in a Trump-friendly district.
Anyway, it's not impeachment related, so I'll stop here.
