Connie Schultz: This Could Be Melania Trump's Barbara Bush Moment

This Could Be Melania Trump's Barbara Bush Moment
By Connie Schultz

April 25, 2019 6 min read

Countless doctors and children's advocates have sent letters to the Trump administration about the dangers of these long-term separations. Nearly 8,000 mental health experts signed a petition with this warning: "To pretend that separated children do not grow up with the shrapnel of this traumatic experience embedded in their minds is to disregard everything we know about child development, the brain, and trauma."

Journalists have chronicled how, after just three months' separation, some of these young children no longer recognize their parents. Grieving parents describe bright and engaged kids changed by the wounds of trauma.

Donald Trump's response: Let's do it again.

There is one person in this administration who could force his hand.

Go to the border, first lady Melania Trump.

Take the reporters and photographers with you and go cradle the babies that your husband wants to rip from parents' arms. Hold the hands of those mothers and fathers, and listen to them describe why they have risked everything to flee and save their children's lives. Hear the anguish in their voices. See the fear in their eyes.

At the Easter roll, you read Emily Winfield Martin's book, "The Wonderful Things You Will Be." You held up that page and asked the children gathered around you, "Will you stand up for good by saving the day?"

Go to the border, Mrs. Trump.

4. No, I do not!

She could care less. All she cares about is her constantly over dressed self.

She stood right beside Trump with her dark glasses on, listened to Trump rant, tell lie after lie about the Mueller team being 19 Democrats. She is as bad as he is. Any character at all she would stand up.

3. What would lead anyone to believe

 

that Melania is any different than her husband? "I just don't care."

5. She and her skank husband don't give one shit. Enough of reporters trying to pretend she is not

 

an empty vessel.

6. Are you serious?

That advice to a woman who wore a jacket to the border that said, "I really don't care, do you?" She is as vile as her husband, with the same exact morals!

8. Stay away from the border, Mrs. Trump.

The dangerous, cruel man you consistently enable traumatized all those children and their families.
“Be Best” ....put on a pair of stilettos and go on out into Michelle Obama’s garden.

9. Seems that some people are hoping Melania

miraculously changes into a First Lady that will be respected. Same with hoping Trump miraculously changes into someone else. They are incapable of empathy and compassion.

12. Remember the wise words of Maya Angelou:

"When people show you who the are, believe them the first time."

Melania showed us who she is more than once. Go watch that clip of Melania arguing with Joy Behar in which she insisted that "Obama needs to show his birth certificate because the people want to see his birth certificate..."

Melania is as loathsome as her husband.

14. Malaria

needs to show HER birth certificate and paperwork that shows she is allowed to be a permanent resident of the USA.

Otherwise, just deport her back to Novo Mesto, Slovenia.

But honestly, would any woman with personal standards, empathy and morality marry someone like Donald?
Either she had none to start with, or had them surgically removed before the marriage.

15. Go to the border? Melania says, "Been there, done that."

"I don't care to waste another moment of spa time sitting around with those kids who aren't Barron."

My son's pediatric psychiatrist wrote one of those 8000 letters from the administration that couldn't care less.
