Melania, Who Is Supposedly Fluent In French, Needed A Translator For Macron

JakeThomas

Melania Trump supposedly speaks five languages fluently, including French. So what's with the headset for Macron?

According to President Donald Trump and the first lady, Melania Trump speaks fluent French — along with several other languages.

But at the G7 summit in France this week, Melania appeared to require a translation when French President Emmanuel Macron spoke in his native tongue.

Picked up by numerous social media users, and the DC Tribune, a clip from the summit shows the first lady listening intently with a headset to her ears while Macron speaks to reporters.

Those headsets offer real-time translations of the speaker’s words, because unlike Melania, not everyone is fluent in at least five languages.

But then, it appears perhaps Melania isn’t either.

Trump said that Melania graduated from the University of Ljubljana in Slovenia with a degree in Architecture... Turns out that was a lie too, she dropped out her freshman year...

Her French doesn't go beyond "leave the money on the dresser"

She’s probably listening to her 4th language translated to her 3rd. Jumping through linguistic hoops is tiring.

Maybe she thought knowing "Its double for head" in French meant she's fluent.

It became clear last year at a kindergarten in France. As she walked in she said hello how are you in broken french and was stumbling with that. No more french in that classroom. Keep in mind her visa was a Einstein card.

The fact that she used a headset means nothing. She was probably comparing the "official" translation with what Macron was actually saying.

Imagine hating someone you've never met simply because of who they married.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE. Yes, we are aware that her French is next to nothing, but she did NOT have a translator. What is wrong with you news people who still don't know the difference between an interpreter and a translator. We interpreters (BTW, I have also done translating) face palm every time you guys get these two words confused.
Translation is written. Interpreting is spoken.
