I am watching her speak Live on CNN right now, on a serious topic. As it says at the bottom of the screen "Melania Trump Makes Rare Appearance at State Dept./First lady presenting International Women of Courage Awards".
Though she is clearly using a prepared script, she is stumbling on some words and her accent has never sounded so heavy. Yet there is a sincerity to her delivery that it comes across that this is one issue she cares about.
The problem really just hit me: English is still her second language, she really has to practice a speech intensely to even do one. That it may be a major deal for her to speak in public at all, that while she can get by easily in friendly social settings, talking on serious topics is a whole 'nother thing and she risks ridicule every time she does.
