From the moment I saw the silhouette of The Donald against the stage fog with the music of Queen’s “We are the Champions” in the background, I felt I was watching a movie.
The unreal feeling continued and increased in intensity as he introduced his wife against the giant red and white stripes of Old Glory.
But then I saw a truly beautiful woman, free of her husband and handlers, alone upon the national stage, totally in command, speaking in a perfectly modulated voice, a perfectly written speech alluding to inclusiveness, concern and respect for women and children.
I have to confess I was surprised and impressed by Melania Trump.
She is a true professional. She inspired me and persuaded me as much as the robo-calls I receive daily offering me new plumbing, roofing or educational services.
