— The official bio of Melania Trump now suggests that she did not complete a college degree in Slovenia, as she previously claimed on her own website.

The future first lady's bio on President-elect Donald Trump's government website says that she "paused her studies to advance her modeling career in Milan and Paris." It does not say whether she resumed or completed the degree.

As recently as July, Melania Trump's personal site said she obtained a degree in design and architecture at an unspecified university in Slovenia, her country of birth.

After questions from the media, she took her personal site offline, but pages can be found in the Internet Archive.

    One day you'll realize Bush and Obama were playing on the same team.

    I did NOT vote for Hilary.

    That said, why all the fuss? There will be a new Mrs. Trump before the end of the second term 😜

    And yet, he still had less executive orders than George Bush. So who played by their own rules again?

    Does her bio include the part where she was working illegally in America for Trump? Will he catapult her over the Great Wall like he will all the Hispanics and Muslims?

    It's not just about where he's eating dinner, it's about where he is and who he is meeting with. Did you know that when he was at the dinner he snuck out for that he was with very wealthy acquaintances and told them he'd be working on getting their taxes lowered? He snuck out to do this after telling his press corp that he was staying inside for the night.

    Why did he have to sneak to do this?

    Luckily a reporter was in the restaurant close enough to video tape him saying this to his wealthy friends.

    But you don't care, you just want him to restrict people based on their religion alone. Good times.

    Apparently you don't understand the purpose of a Press Pool. President Bush had one with him during the 9-11 attack and he was able to address the nation. Clueless!

    The whole family are serial liars, so why should we be surprised?

    I framed the comment based on the fact that he has criticized others for doing the exact same thing. Take a good hard look at those examples he's on record for saying.

    http://time.com/money/4516670/donald-trump-not-paying-taxes-criticism/Yes, he's using the laws to his advantage. Just like everyone else he bashed. But he bashed them thinking he would be insulated from the truth of his own tax avoidance becoming public. That's where I, along with others, take issue. It's textbook hypocrisy.

    If he knew what humilty was, maybe he wouldn't look like such a blowhard to people who don't buy his BS.

    I'm not jealous of him or his avoidance of paying income taxes for 20 years. But, I will continue to call him out on his "do as I say not as I do" menatlity. The right portrayed Obama as "King" Obama? They haven't seen anything yet. Wait till they get a load of this guy.

    http://fivethirtyeight.com/datalab/every-presidents-executive-actions-in-one-chart/Here's a chart for you Betty. Every president issues executive orders. Trump will also issue them. You don't think Obama was the first and only one do you?

    All presidents use executive orders. Stop complaining. George W. Bush used executive orders and he was a Republican.
