This is unbelievable. It’s like the world might be coming to an end! No… Not really!
In an op-ed piece titled “Melania Trump, Could Be Our Greatest First Lady,” which was written by a known Trump-hater like the majority of so-called journalists from the New York Time is bound to raise eyebrows.
Here is the article via The New York Times:
“Maybe someday, when the history of Donald Trump’s presidency is written, we’ll pinpoint the start of this week as his pivot into complete derangement and come up with a pithy name for it. Maybe we’ll call it Melania Monday.
Trending: Libs Furious At What Trump Dared To Say Instead Of Paying Tribute To Dying John McCain
We’ll note that on Aug. 20, 2018, the first lady, again with a pussy bow, publicly chided cyberbullies at the same time that her husband ranted and raged on Twitter, likening Robert Mueller to Joseph McCarthy and demonstrating a grasp of history commensurate with his grip on civility.

We’ll admire the wickedness of her announcement, just hours later, that she’d be making a solo trip — her farthest and flashiest yet as an official ambassador — to Africa, whose nations the president can’t pronounce, let alone respect. She didn’t choose that destination randomly, throwing a dart at a map. She chose it defiantly, throwing shade at her husband.
Surely Melania Trump is getting under his skin. Certainly she’s making the effort. If she would just turn these fitful baby steps into full-length strides, she might finally undo him and set us free. Melania the Savior. A pussy-bow coup. Stranger things have happened. Less exhilarating fantasies have been born.
And is it really so far-fetched? To judge by his tweets, tantrums and apparent belief that Rudy Giuliani is an appropriate advocate, Donald Trump teeters at the precipice of incoherence and self-destruction, needing only a shove. Who best to administer it but a spouse with her own, separate bedroom in the White House and her own, separate hotel suite when they travel?
She inches ever closer to open contempt for him. She finds increasingly clever ways to show it. And it’s a perfect wedding of patriotism and payback for all the humiliations that he has heaped on her.
This first-lady thing clearly flummoxed her at first. It’s a ludicrous job. You’re supposed to make a difference without making waves, find a passion while veiling your convictions and smile blithely through a ceaseless forensic examination of your every accessory.
It’s infantilizing. It’s objectifying. If a presidential administration were a sedan, the first lady would be its hood ornament. If it were a manse, she’d be the topiary bracketing the front stoop.
Usually Melania Trump was absent topiary. America had a denuded front stoop. And we made hasty assumptions. When she initially announced her anti-cyberbullying campaign in a speech in November 2016, we thought that she was out to lunch. Did she not see the contradiction?
For the president’s first State of the Union address, she wore a white pantsuit that served as a sartorial reminder of suffragists and of Hillary Clinton. This month, after he questioned LeBron James’s intelligence in a tweet, her spokeswoman released a statement that asserted the first lady’s admiration for James’s work with at-risk children in his hometown, Akron, Ohio. Melania was possibly interested in visiting the school there that James had helped to start, the statement said.
And my colleagues Katie Rogers and Maggie Haberman recently reported that during a trip overseas last month, the president had a fit because the first lady’s television on Air Force One was tuned to CNN, not his beloved Fox News. Was CNN an accident or a provocation? Well, in a public response to the incident, Melania’s spokeswoman made clear that the first lady watches “any channel she wants.”
I’m not sure what to make of that “I REALLY DON’T CARE, DO U?” jacket that she wore on her way to a detention center for migrant children in Texas. It’s the “rosebud” of our time. But what if the message was that she didn’t mind if we interpreted her behavior as a rebuke of her husband’s?
Marriage as psyops — it’s not virgin territory, but the stage and stakes here are epic. On Monday, as The Washington Post’s James Hohmann noted, she used the phrase “global society” in both her spoken remarks about cyberbullying and her written remarks about the trip to Africa, which she praised for its “rich culture.” Her husband, of course, treats “globalists” and “globalism” as dirty words, and some of his “shithole countries” are on that richly cultured continent. She’ll be going there without him.
Other first ladies beautified highways, promoted reading, planted squash. This one could abbreviate a nightmare. She’s in a situation that her predecessors weren’t, on the arm of an overlord who needs undermining, and it’s her invitation to greatness, or at least her prompt for an itinerary tailored to taunt.
I urge that visit to James’s school. Bring Don Lemon along. I suggest lunch dates with Maxine Waters, Aperol spritzes with Angela Merkel and pajama parties with Nancy Pelosi. And pussy bows and pantsuits for days on end. They’re the threads of a revolution.”
Don’t be fooled, if you took the time the time to stomach reading the whole article above you will see it’s not an actual praise of anything. It’s just one more mere try to take down our President. The man the majority of us voted for in the 2016 election. But what perhaps makes this article special is that he comes at him by forwarding a conspiracy theory which actually claims First Lady Melania Trump is trying to get under her husband’s skin. That she has contempt for him and if only she would turn it up a notch “she might finally undo him and set us free.”
Free us from what? A world without ISIS? Peace in the Korean Peninsula? An unemployment rate not seen in decades? An economy which the CEO of Target calls “the best I’ve seen in my career?” A GDP which former President Barack Hussein Obama said was unattainable in today’s world? A consumer confidence not seen since the 90’s? Is this the evil they want to rid us from?
I think we can all rest assured that if Hillary Clinton didn’t have contempt for Bill, and Jackie Kennedy didn’t have contempt for John, President Trump has nothing to worry about since he has done nothing compared to what those two characters put their wives through.
The author of this piece, Frank Bruni has been with The Times since 1995 and has actually held a variety of jobs in the field of journalism, which in today’s world seems to have open contempt for people like you and I. He was White House reporter, Rome bureau chief, and chief restaurant critic before becoming a columnist in 2011 for the NYT. Maybe he should just stick to being a restaurant critic, which I am sure he didn’t excel at either outside of his own elitist circles.

Behar Claims Half Of Trump’s Employees Are Being Indicted – Realizes BIG Mistake Too Late!
The View is one of those shows well worth not watching. Joy Behar just proclaimed that there is no honor in working for the Trump White House. She claims half of the employees are being indicted. That is just blatantly untrue. I’m sure the phone was ringing off the hook after Behar made that statement.
Behar viciously said this in regards to the rumor that First Lady Melania Trump is ‘cleaning house’ because of certain issues there. There is no link between working at this White House and being indicted. The example she used of Sean Spicer is flawed since he was never indicted. Facts don’t matter to Joy Behar… she’s in it for the barbed quips and laughs. The Daily Caller has more on the sheer vitriol and jealousy that Behar spouts every time she speaks of Melania:
Joy Behar claimed on Wednesday’s “The View” that there was no honor in working in the Trump White House.
“Half of them are being indicted for God’s sakes!” she exclaimed. “If they’re not quitting or getting fired, they’re going to jail. Some honor.”
The segment began with a conversation about the public statement made by the first lady’s spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham condemning deputy national security adviser Mira Ricardel. “It is the position of the Office of the First Lady that she no longer deserves the honor of serving in this White House,” the statement read.
Calling the move “unusual,” Whoopi Goldberg asked whether Melania Trump was overstepping her bounds.
“I like when she says she ‘no longer deserves the honor,’” Behar cut in. “Tell that to Michael Cohen, Sean Spicer. See how honored they were to work in this White House. Half of them are being indicted for God’s sakes. If they’re not quitting or getting fired, they’re going to jail. Some honor.”
Behar appeared to be implying that there was a direct link between working in the Trump White House and being indicted — but the examples she chose didn’t exactly bear that out.
Sean Spicer, who previously worked as the White House press secretary, has not been indicted for anything. And Michael Cohen, former attorney to President Donald Trump, was indicted and reached a plea deal but never held a White House position.
In fact, none of the others indicted in connection with the Mueller probe ever held official White House positions. The closest it gets is Michael Flynn, former national security advisor, who pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI after resigning from his position.
Abby Huntsman and Meghan McCain weighed in on the situation, as well. Huntsman argued that perhaps a public statement, however unconventional for a first lady, might have been the only way she thought she would be heard. McCain suggested that perhaps Ricardel had said things Melania did not want to hear.
“You’ve got to surround yourself with people who aren’t going to be yes men,” she explained.
Behar wrapped up the conversation by saying that Melania should fire whoever let her head for the border wearing a jacket that read “I really don’t care do U?” — and when her cohosts informed her that the first lady was the one who made the decision, she added, “she ought to fire herself.”
HUGE Pop Star’s Husband Sends Warning To Wildfire Looters: You WILL Be Shot On Site!
There’s at least one huge pop star that probably won’t have to worry about looters during the California wildfires. Pop superstar Pink and her husband, Carey Hart, are letting looters know that if they even think about trying to steal from them there will be a huge and probably lethal price to pay.
The couple lives in Malibu and they are watching the fires very closely. A lot of people there have had their homes burn to the ground and people have died in these fires. Most have evacuated but Corey, who supports the 2nd Amendment, has a message for anyone who tries to loot near them. The Daily Caller has more on the state of affairs in Malibu:
Pop superstar Pink and her husband, Carey Hart, have a very special message for potential wildfire looters.
The couple, who lives outside Los Angeles in the Malibu area, have been watching the California wildfires ravage their community for two weeks now.

The area has also been struggling with looters, since most homeowners have evacuated, and their security systems are down due to widespread power outages. Some high-profile properties, like “The Bachelor” mansion, hired round-the-clock, armed security.
But Pink’s husband, a proud gun owner, took matters into his own hands and issued a simple warning to all the potential looters out there.
“It’s unfortunate that some people take advantage of others in a crisis,” he wrote. “While the Malibu fires have been burning, some locals have been fighting off and defending their property against the fires. There have been sightings of looters breaking into homes. Well, if you are a looter, think twice if you are heading back into Malibu.”

It’s unfortunate that some people take advantage of others in a crisis. While the malibu fires have been burning, some locals have been fighting off and defending their property against the fires. There have been sightings of looters breaking in to homes. Well, if you are a looter, think twice if you are heading back into malibu. #DefendYourLand #2ndamendment
It doesn’t sound like their household is going to have to worry much.
