Melania Trump to Read Passages from Her Best-Selling Book, "Becoming"

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Melania Trump gave a sneak preview of her speech at the 2020 Republican National Convention by revealing that she would be reading passages from her best-selling memoir, “Becoming.”

“I asked myself, what’s the best way for people to learn more about me?” Melania told reporters at the White House. “The answer came loud and clear: my book be best.”

Trump said that she had chosen passages from her book that describe her childhood in Chicago and her education at Harvard Law School.

“I am going to be introducing the American people to a Melania they never knew, Chicago lawyer lady,” she said.

She said that, unlike in 2016, she was not concerned about what critics might say about her R.N.C. speech this year. “When they get low, we get high,” she said.

3. LOL and...

sadly, these days it's hard to differentiate between satire and what is actually happening as, all too often, they are one and the same.

office by voters.

12. You Nearly Gave Me Heart-Attack, Mem-sahib

It took a moment to realize, as I assume she has had something ghosted for her, and blinked dumb at the title of Mrs. Obama's autobiography.

Well played.

13. Oh, I am so sorry!

I really enjoy Andy Borowitz, I find that his humorous take on the horror show we're all experiencing makes it a little easier to bear...

16. NO Need, I Enjoyed Every Second Of It....

And share your regard for Mr. Borowitz --- he has a knack for plausible headlines that rival The Onion at its best.

I've gotten so I look for his latest every day - his cleverness makes reality sightly easier to take.
