Melania Trump Didn't Appreciate This Billboard In Croatia

Though her words may occasionally be cribbed from more popular First Ladies, Melania Trump does speak them in English. Billboards in Croatia celebrated(?) her linguistic abilities in an advertisement for a local language school, but she was none too pleased and quickly got them taken down.


The Associated Press reports that Trump wasn’t too happy to see her face plastered next to the words, “Just imagine how way you can go with a little bit of English.” Yes, you too could leave your home country and marry the human equivalent of the congealed slime on top of an old lump of Spam. And then live in the White House, when you’re finally forced to.

The American Institute in Zagreb insists that this sign was in no way a subtle dig at Melania Trump becoming main character in what will likely be recorded as one of the most shameful moments in American history. Their spokesperson, Ivis Buric, told the AP that regardless of what you think of her, she is undeniably the First Lady:

“There are different opinions about Melania Trump, but the fact is that she is the first lady,” Buric said. “She had to do a lot, including delivering speeches in English and addressing huge crowds in a foreign language.”


Nonetheless, all five billboards are gone now, after Trump’s lawyer threatened the school with a lawsuit. Guess she’s not as proud of her accomplishments as she should be.

Was the “little bit” of English supposed to be snarky?
