I heard a caller on talk radio say Donald Trump was a 20-year liberal until just recently. Oh really? So who raised his kids? As I watched Melania, Donald Jr.,then Eric and later both Tiffany and Ivanka speak to the convention, I was struck by their moral clarity, respect for the family, and unbelievable public speaking skills. The values they espoused were classic conservative values. Melania was especially genuine, having immigrated from an Eastern European communist country.
As Mike Pence noted in his brilliant and well delivered speech, "You can't fake kids!"
