Melania Trump Facing Enormous Protests As She Arrives in Boston for 'Be Best' Photo Op

Approximately 250 Boston Medical Center employees are protesting a visit by Melania Trump on Wednesday over fears that her presence will dissuade vulnerable populations, like immigrants, from seeking medical care.

Trump and Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar plan to visit a BMC program dedicated to treating babies who are born with opioid dependency. It’s a natural extension of Trump’s confusing Be Best initiative, which—among several other nebulous goals—tackles drug use and opioid addiction.

But according to the Boston Globe, protesters worry that this photo op may make BMC appear complicit with the Trump administration’s war against immigrants.

From the Boston Globe:

“If they thought that my affiliation was with somebody who promotes such division and promotes the hatred of immigrants, I’m sure that they’re not going to be asking to come to see me to take care of them,” said Cecilia T. Girard, a nurse midwife who is an immigrant from Ecuador.


Hospital employees said their patients are bearing the brunt of immigration crackdowns, and that some are so worried about deportation that they have missed appointments.



Last week, hospital employees urged hospital administrators to cancel Trump’s visit. BMC president and chief executive, Kate Walsh, didn’t budge. Instead, she encouraged employees to use Trump’s visit as an opportunity to show the first lady and federal leaders like Azar first hand how important federal funding is to the vulnerable populations they serve.

This is the last place they should be showing their hideous, botoxed faces.

Did she really think she was going to be welcomed with open arms? What I would like to know is who arranged this ridiculous little publicity stunt for her and what they were thinking when they set it up.

6. I imagine most of those 250 will be working or sleeping

and readying themselves for their next shift. So their portion of the inevitable disruption of a presidential visit won't happen.

As for those on site, I would expect them to be there to work and to behave completely professionally and be as dedicated DIRECTLY to patient care as they claim to be.

9. It bothers me that a former

sex worker is being treated like royalty. She was an escort, nude model. How very classy. Now she lives at taxpayer expense and travels the world. She has as much self awareness as her ugly husband. They both think they are something special. They are - specially repugnant.

43. Please don't do that. Sex Worker status of any sort, has nothing to do with this.

She's a terrible human being, but not because she was an escort or a nude model.

She's a terrible human being because she's aide, co-conspirator, and confidant to Donald Trump. She's a terrible human being because she is married to, and publicly supports a man who throws the children of immigrants in jails that you or I wouldn't board our dogs in, even knowing Melania abused her visa, and also got her parents fast-tracked into the country.

Do as I say, not as I do, racist hypocrisy are her calling cards directly, and by way of marriage to Trump.

That she took her clothes off in front of a camera at some point is pretty much the least interesting or relevant part of her life.

44. That she sold herself to

anyone with enough money is repugnant to me. When she is in public, I wonder how many men remember her, and her price. There is no excuse for that, apart from just pure laziness. Rather than get a proper job, just sell herself for fast money. Now look at her, pretending to be a "lady" She disgusts me, along with her con man husband. They deserve each other.

Besides me think that Melania Trump is downright ugly, with her shifty eyes and mouth tightly shut, she is either very unhappy or is trying to be the model she supposedly was. Where is the son, he is never seen at the White House, as the Obama girls were, it is
like he really is not wanted, the poor kid has a sad life, he almost does not exist.
I wonder if he is allowed to play with other boys?

35. Our Solvenian Sex Worker first nude lady is at it again.

She thinks we don't know how she got the job. And then she puts out a resume that said she spoke 5 languages (a lie) had a 4 year degree (a lie), claiming she was a model (a lie).

She is a sex worker, she should own it and try to help out other women in poverty with few skills. But instead she writes her opinion of suffering children on the back of her coat and pretends to be something she is Not. If she stood up and proudly announced who she really was, and object to caged children, I would respect her. But the Slovenian sex worker will never do that.

And the family value Christians embrace her for the fake model she pretends to be.
