Lara Trump: Merkel admitting migrants 'one of the worst things that ever happened to Germany'

Source: The Hill

Trump campaign adviser Lara Trump remarked Thursday that Germany Chancellor Angela Merkel's decision to allow migrants into the country was "one of the worst things that ever happened to Germany."

“When there was a march across Europe by a million people who wanted to get into Western Europe, Angela Merkel let them in,” Fox Business host Stuart Varney said during an interview with Trump on the network.

“It was the downfall of Germany, it was one of the worst things that ever happened to Germany,” Trump responded. “This president knows that, he’s trying to prevent that from happening here.”

Lara Trump, who is married to the president's son Eric Trump, made the remark as part of a discussion about a migrant caravan that Varney said is headed toward the U.S.-Mexico border. He said that the footage of the migrants reminded him of migrants moving through Europe.

7. Okay, that beats what I was going to say.

I couldn't come up with much else wither.

Let's not forget all the repairs needed on the Autobahnen in the late 1940s. Cars couldn't go fast at all there for a while.

9. Trumps are threatened by anyone smarter/more competent.

And since they are the dumbest/most incompetent people that ever lived, that doesn't give them many choices regarding with whom to associate.

6. Yeah, I don't think immigrants caused "the downfall of Germany."

Unless you count Hitler -- he was from Austria. The Trumps have very short memories and attention spans, though. They usually spend the day talking about whatever they heard on Fox that morning.

they weren't teaching kids about the Holocaust these days. Sad. Seems like such a stupid thing to say that I'd like to know the context.

Someone married to a trump? Puh-leeze!

28. I am reminded of learning in school about slavery.

Initially I could not believe it. Then I realized it was true.

Both slavery and the Holocaust were evil.

Both committed by supposedly enlightened and cultured societies.

Makes me wonder where we are headed today.

30. Great clip from the movie

I've seen almost all of Michael Moore's movies. A couple of them I have seen in Europe with my fellow neighbors.
Most are great people.

Steve Bannon has been recruiting new members to his racist white supremacy thinking and it's spreading around Western Europe which pains me.
Thanks for sharing the clip. It gave me chills and tears, again.

There's no redeeming quality about that puke.

I didn’t want to brag.

Also, I really, really hate auto fill. I prefer choosing when to add an apostrophe & when not to.

19. Ridiculous and completely clueless

We have very good German friends living in Bremen and Berlin and we were just there this past summer ourselves. Germans very much welcome new cultures into their country. Just walk the streets of any town or city and see melting pot of food and culture everywhere.

The arrogance and audacity of this women to presume to speak like this is shocking.
There is no such thing as a good trump.

29. Why does Lara Trump think she has anything to say worth listening to?

Because she doesn't. She is just as stupid and pointless as her husband and should stay quietly in the background. She is only making things worse for them.

32. yet another ignorant, despicable family member

speaking out on sensitive, consequential topics despite her complete lack of qualifications to do so.

Sweep out these racists, criminals, and traitors with a bright blue broom in 2020.
