‘Meredith McIver is a not a real person’ has become an internet meme. It’s everywhere. Does Melania Trump’s speechwriter exist?
I think so. I went to her house back on July 20th, met her sister Karen, who was very nice and told me Meredith worked for Donald Trump and lived in Manhattan. Of course, all of this could be part of a large conspiracy. But for the moment, I’ll take it at face value. Karen didn’t know I was coming to Westport, Connecticut, for example. And Alfred Hitchcock was nowhere to be found.
Still, Twitter has suspended @MeredithMcIver, which has driven Twitter readers and writers into a frenzy. They are convinced MM is not a real person. They’ve convinced Twitter of that, too.
I re-posted my July 20th story last night. And then I got a Tweet from Jonathan Elwood, who identified himself as being from TrumpPencePR.
UPDATE NOTE: Elwood is a fraud, there is no such person or organization, McIver it turns out does not have any social media.
Elwood wrote: Hi Roger, we are the PR/media team for the Trump Organization and the Trump/Pence campaign. My name is Jonathan Elwood and I am a part of a multiple-person team running this account, including Meredith, and I just wanted to say thank you for putting this ridiculous “conspiracy theory” to rest.
This is the rest of our DM. I asked Jonathan what happened to McIver’s Twitter account.
