Unless you’ve been enjoying a complete internet, cable and telephone blackout you have heard or seen the backlash from Melania Trump‘s pretty familiar sounding speech during at the Republican National Convention.

Despite that being the most discussed moment from the RNC, it wasn’t the only family member to stand behind the podium in hopes of encouraging the nation to put their trust in Trump as his son gave a solid speech highlighting his father’s determination and approach behind his political race.
