So, Melania’s Diary seems to be an irresistible project. We found this one in the trash at Cleveland airport.
No one must ever read this.
It’s been getting harder and harder and scarier for me, to think about Donny as President. I’d hate to think what my parents thought about how he talks about people outside the US.
So, I wanted to pay homage to Michelle, to write something that was non-racist. So I did it. I can not tell anybody. But I am quietly proud.
I wonder if anyone will figure out that that is why I made a big thing that I had written it. If they do, I will deny it.
How else could I live with myself. I can not say anything, because of the non-disclosures in our pre-nup.
This blog wonders if we will find anything else in the trash.

The following quote appears in the New York Times from Ms Trump’s speechwriter. It is, in fact, fully consistent with the found diary entry,
“In working with Melania on her recent first lady speech, we discussed many people who inspired her and messages she wanted to share with the American people,” Ms. McIver wrote.

“A person she has always liked is Michelle Obama,” she added.
“Over the phone,” Ms. Trump “read me some passages from Mrs. Obama’s speech as examples. I wrote them down and later included some of the phrasing in the draft that ultimately became the final speech. I did not check Mrs. Obama’s speeches. This was my mistake and I feel terrible for the chaos I have caused Melania and the Trumps as well as to Mrs. Obama. No harm was meant.”
