The progressive left had an unholy cow when First Lady Melania Trump opened her husband’s rally in Melbourne, Florida the weekend before last with the Lord’s Prayer.
“Leftists on social media tore into First Lady Melania Trump, mocking her accent and religion and branding her everything from a hostage to a # – all for the secular offense of reciting “The Lord’s Prayer.” (Fox News, Feb. 19, 2017)
“Melania Trump began President Trump’s rally Saturday in Florida by delivering the prayer, which Christians – many of whom recite the prayer in church each week – believe was first said by Jesus Christ. The crowd at Orlando-Melbourne Airport received the prayer enthusiastically.
Left-leaning social media users were a different story, however.

“Several Twitter users harkened to the controversy over Melania Trump plagiarizing a section of her Republican National Convention speech from a previous speech given by former First Lady Michelle Obama.
At least this time Melania plagerized the Lord’s Prayer from the Bible instead of Michelle Obama. #TrumpRally

“President Trump didn’t escape unscathed, either.
“Trump is still there, so Melania’s prayer didn’t work,” @GerryDuggan wrote.
