Does Anyone Else Find the Melania Kidney Thing a bit Hinky?

Last edited Wed May 16, 2018, 01:06 PM - Edit history (1)

No prior announcement I am aware of.

She will be in the hospital all week for a procedure that usually requires an overnight stay max.

Could there be some reason she needs to be kept out of sight a few days?

It's simply impossible to believe anything this WH puts out in the media.
They haven't earned any trust from any sane thinking American.
So my thinking is, Melania went in to redo some plastic surgery. Having plastic surgery isn't a one-time thing.

97. Her face can't be lifted much farther without it looking like

it would crack if she tries to smile. But Spanky might insist that she keep getting alterations of various kinds, since she's well past her sell-by date (late 40's), and since he can't very well trade her in for a younger one while he's president, he'll just have to make her do what she can to keep looking like the trophy wife she was when he married her.

That way she would be free of him and he would have to pay her alimony. I really can't imagine that she would go out of her way to do anything to keep him. She is still a very attractive woman and I am sure there are a lot of other men who would snap her up in a minute if he dumped her.

Her son is 12, Usually kids are beginning to do their own thing by then. You never see her doing anything with him publically. Is he into sports? Never seen at a game. Intellectual persuits? Never see her taking him to any museums or mentally stimulating persuits. He had nannies when younger. We only know of her devotion because we are told so. I fear for that poor child and his self-absorbed parents.

That said, I think an assault by Twitler is the reason she’s in the hospital. Not plastic surgery.

14. I haven't been following this at all

I didn't even know she was ill, finally figured I'd take a moment and look.

If she had a cancerous kidney removed, as long as the malignancy was contained, nothing further needs to be done. A friend of mine had a cancerous kidney that was discovered by accident during another surgery, got it removed immediately, and is still going strong now 30 years later (he is now 77).

Whatever else is going on with her and her odious spouse, cancer SUCKS royally (my parents and all their siblings had it, and my wife has had it twice). I hope she doesn't have to suffer the slow downhill spiral this disease inflicts on those that get a terminal dose of it. NO one deserves that (OK, for Mitch McConnell and Dick Cheney, I MIGHT make an exception).

for something dealing with her kidney. As someone who has spent a lot of time in hospitals over the last 7 years, I can tell you that I wanted out of those places ASAP.

That no one has said what was wrong with her kidney? Generally, medical problems in the first family are at least given a diagnosis, if for no other reason than to prevent a lot of speculation I would guess. I know that Nancy Reagan's breast cancer wasn't put out there that much, but people understood mastectomy, no big mystery there.

Good for her. Cancer is being detected much better now than 50 years ago, but it's not much of a comfort to those diagnosed with it.
As one whose parents both had it, along with ALL of their siblings, with me it's not "if" but "when."

Hincky Christmas Tree lighting and Easter egg hunt.

I am just surprised that

A) Her surgeon didn't get s cabinet post

B) They didn't find a pharmaceutical sponsor to pay them $ 5 million to name the cyst

C) That Trump didn't award himself the medal of Freedom for all the difficulty he went through

D) Fox news didn't broadcast it live.

E) The House Intelligence committee blame it on stress from the Mueller probe

F) The American Nazi Party petition the Smithsonian to enshrine the minute mass taken out as a religious icon

And I’ll put my tinfoil hat on: shes being slowly poisoned. Maybe a divorced Melania is perhaps a loaded gun to trump/putin. Maybe she knows too much. The kidneys are often injured from toxic substances.

There are an awful lot of dead russians, and trump could shoot someone in the middle of 5th ave and get away with it.

Ok, so its doubtful, but couldnt help thinking it.

Conspiracy theories aside, I dont think she would be away from her son if she could help it, not even to get away from dotard. Its probably more serious than they are saying.

When we de-humanize people with whom we disagree, that's where a lot of problems happen.

De-humanization is the stuff I see a LOT of coming from the Trump crowd. Leads to racism, misogyny, homophobia, and all sorts of hatred.

Just because Melania is married to a jerk, and just because she has supported many of his views, doesn't mean we have the right to de-humanize her. I guess we could de-humanize her, but that just makes us similarly guilty of that which we hate.

I think she is really too shallow and politically passive to care one way or the other and is taking her cues from her dumb fuck of a husband. She's wrong for repeating those talking points, but I as far as republicans go, I can think of about a thousand other people that I hate more than her. I think she has a serious case of Stockholm Syndrome. She is easily influenced by whomever controls her.

you feigned that you thought that what they were seriously saying that they thought MLK "was not successful."



The passive aggressive martyrdom, mixed with some real cold blooded doubt of the basic decency of anyone who disagrees, delivered as "concern" is fascinating.

I mean, I was impressed by the bald faced nerve when you asked me if I "thought that people should be treated humanely or not," but I hadn't seen this.

I knew this the holier than thou mean girl in high school who, when we asked what she thought of the prom theme, she said, "I'm not really a fan of prom. I was raised as decent Christian girl. But you all have fun!" Then when everyone rolled their eyes, her jaw drops and she says "What???? What do you have a problem with - Christianity or decency?" Laughter from all of us. "I will pray for you all that you don't get raped. I'm just trying to be nice to you people. Why are you so mean? I guess you just hate Jesus." More eyerolling.

Yeah. People can spot that kind of backhanded "concern" a mile away. And she really thought that she was a puppetmaster of shaming, poor kid.

121. Yes, you as good as said, "I think he's smart, and if you disagree that

a comedian talking about eyeshadow is going low, like violence in the streets, you don't think MLK is smart."

In addition to derailing by condescendingly using privilege in the words of "calm down, now..." you are also skilled at derailing by affirming the consequent fallacy!!

Someone disagrees with you about a joke a comedian made, and you blow that into contradicting MLK himself, and everything he believed about non-violent protest!

But if you want an example, I would refer you to Martin Luther King Jr...who preached non-violent resistance. He spoke against using violence, because he believed that it would hurt the cause for civil rights. So he advocated civil disobedience, but insisted that the temptation to do violent things would be counter-productive.

I think MLK was smart, too.


Martin Luther King said we should not go low and be violent.
I think Martin Luther King Jr is "pretty smart"
If you disagree with me that a comedian's joke is sexist,
You therefore don't agree with me that Martin Luther King Jr was smart!

Continue with your passive aggressive goading of people in the guise of "trying to unite us" like Gandhi did, and you'll continue to get called out on it.

OK, now is it your turn to bring up how MLK would agree with you and not with anyone who doesn't agree with you?

The operation takes 2-3 hours. Recovery time in the hospital is typically 1-3 days. Donors often are able to return to work as soon as 2-3 weeks after the procedure.

Occasionally the kidney needs to be removed through an open incision in the flank region. Prior to the use of the laparoscopic technique, this surgery was the standard for the removal of the donated kidney. It involves a 5-7 inch incision on the side, division of muscle and removal of the tip of the twelfth rib. The operation typically lasts 3 hours and the recovery in the hospital averages 4-5 days with time out of work of 6-8 weeks.

Although laparoscopy is increasingly used over open surgery, from time to time, the surgeon may elect to do an open procedure when individual anatomic differences in the donor suggest that this will be a better surgical approach.

Of course, maybe she is having some other kind of treatment.

I hope she gets well soon.

101. I don't remember anything being said about a transplant.

Since you can survive with one kidney, I doubt she would be allowed a transplant unless both were failing***. There's been no prior mention of her having any chronic health problems.


***If both kidneys were failing, she would likely have been on dialysis several times a week.

64. I don't think it is plastic surgery.

She is at Walter Reed. That isn't where she would go for cosmetic surgery. She would be in L.A. with some Beverly Hills doctor. She would just have gone MIA like she has on other occasions.

Either this was something more serious than was let on or they are outright lying about why she is there. My thought is psychiatric, but the truth is we will never know.

but it could be reconstructive - which wouldn't be done at fancy clinic. Poor thing just keeps falling down stairs and running into tables.

166. Good point. I think it is something psychiatric too, but I'm not sure what.

Could be a nervous breakdown, suicide attempt, prescription drug addiction, psychotic break, etc.

We'll probably never know for sure unless The Donald croaks and she writes a tell-all someday.

We don't know anything at all about what condition she has

She's the President's wife, at Walter Reed, so they'll be very cautious with her

68. Perhaps a new model brain implant to communicate with handlers?

The current model obviously had some adaptation difficulties.

I would think it would be cheaper and quicker just to replace her with a brand-new "model".

I see no reason to spend a second speculating, let alone coming up with a conspiracy theory. Beyond the birther comments, her role has been to stand in front of crowds under humiliating conditions. She's harmless and if public displays are any indication, not treated well. I hope she recovers and retreats from public life.

108. This is disgraceful. She is ill and is hospitalized. There is NO requirement for the First Lady to

disclose the details of any medical treatment, illness or surgery she may have had. I know that some like Betty Ford, Nancy Reagan etc have used medical issues they have had to use their prominence to get information out to people, some of whom might have early warning symptoms of the same disease. Even for those who do not rise to that level or who are not politicians, many have done this and it has saved the health or life of others. I KNOW women who blew off mammograms - who scheduled them after hearing about Elizabeth Edwards' diagnosis.

We have no idea what her precise medical issue is - and she has the right to her privacy if she so chooses. Many of the posts on this thread, not yours, suggesting battering by Trump, suicide, plastic surgery etc make us look both terrible. Imagine that this was Michelle Obama or Hillary Clinton who were in the hospital. How would we feel if similar comments were made on the right. (In real life, we did have the RW suggesting that HRC was (and is) suffering from something terrible.)

I hope that Melania Trump is back in the White House soon and that this was no big deal. If there is a medical problem, I hope we are better than the Republicans who hoped that(either) Clinton's health would fail.

127. So, you're calling people who don't agree with you being like "Russian Trolls?"

And your posts are doing little to nothing to "unite" and it sure looks like that's not your goal.

You enjoy trying to shame people who don't agree with you, which is the opposite of trying to be united.

Simply disagreeing with people is fine. Trying to make them believe that you are the embodiment of the ideas of Gandhi and MLK doesn't work.

You seem fine with trying to get a rise out of them, by telling them to 'calm down' when they aren't upset.

that I believe in the teachings of MLK and Gandi, so I just can't. I respect human life too much. Attempting to shame people with passive aggressive comparisons to Russian and GOP trolls doesn't promote unity, people!

My hope for you is that you will find peace, and be able to validate your own feelings, instead of attempting to shame others into doing so.

You are fine the way you are! You might run into conflict here on DU, so until you are ready to deal with that, I recommend focusing on your breath, reconnecting with nature. That's not silencing you at all, my child.

That's simply imparting the wisdom of teachers like MLK and Gandhi to someone who might benefit from it.

Surely you can't object to that! Breathe, Ollie, breathe.

Namaste.

Since we saw 65 million votes pretty much discarded like trash, we need a way to fight back against plutocrats, evangelicals, oligarchs, and pizzagaters ruining this country since voting alone is not doing the trick.
