In any communication, there should be a goal, but I can't figure out what she was going for.
"Each of you are the backbone of this country. All Nations have experienced the loss of loved ones, economic pain, and the negative impacts of isolation".
Supporters of the president breached the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday, prompting the building to go on lockdown. After a preamble about Covid-19, Melania said, "With almost every experience I have had, I found myself carrying many individual's [sic] stories home with me in my heart". "I pray for their families' comfort and strength during this hard time".
"I am disappointed and disheartened with what happened last week. I find it shameful that surrounding these tragic events there has been salacious gossip, unwarranted personal attacks, and false misleading accusations on me - from people who are looking to be relevant and have an agenda", she said in a statement released by the White House.
She said that it was "inspiring" to see the huge passion to participate in the electoral process, but that "passion" should not be turned into "violence".
In her statement, Melania echoed similar words to her husband's video, saying it was an "honor of my lifetime to serve as your First Lady". Interesting choice from the spouse of the so-called "law and order" president. But then, perhaps she hadn't even been talking about the Capitol riots.
"In protecting our Constitution and our Democracy, we will act with urgency, because this president represents an imminent threat to both", Pelosi wrote to her fellow House Democrats on Sunday (local time).
She also urged people to stop the violence, not judge people by the colour of their skin or "use differing political ideologies as a basis for aggression and viciousness".
There are also accusations that parts of her new statement have been plagiarised from past speeches. The common thread in all of these challenging situations is American's unwavering resolve to help one another. Of course, public figures always recycle messaging and language; still, the Capitol riots were nothing if not unprecedented.
Mrs Trump then condemned the events of last week: "Make no mistake about it, I absolutely condemn the violence that has occurred on our Nation's Capitol".
Much like her husband, Melania has echoed claims of voter fraud and has not acknowledged Joe Biden's victory.
While images of the mob breaking into the Capitol consumed the airwaves, the first lady was focused - with the White House chief usher, Timothy Harleth - on getting the shoot completed.
