Melania Trump to appear on CNN coronavirus town hall Thursday night

Melania Trump will appear on CNN's weekly global town hall, "Coronavirus: Facts and Fears," on Thursday night, marking the first time the first lady has appeared on the cable news network since President Trump took office.

"Her remarks, which will be pre-recorded, are the first solo broadcast message from [Melania] Trump since the onset of the pandemic," CNN said in an announcement.

"It is anticipated she will specifically address the nation's students, most of whom have had their academic lives altered by stay-at-home orders and other precautionary health measures," according to CNN.

The network's weekly town hall on the pandemic, which debuted in March, is hosted by "AC360" anchor Anderson Cooper and CNN's chief medical correspondent, Dr. Sanjay Gupta.

On a call with governors obtained by CNN discussing COVID-19 response, President Trump praised the first lady as a "great representative" of the country, adding that she's done "a fantastic job."

Who the fu*k cares what she says about anything. Too little too late.
What did she have other jacket? "I don't care, do you" something like that.
So they drag her out from her parents house in Maryland to perform like a
seal? team trump must be getting really desperate.

No, on second thought keep her in self-isolation. Is loathe the right word for this wreck of a human.

15. (sadly) I was giving this leech some though the other day

Where has she been? Like, for the last three years?

Boy, she got a sweet deal in her contract with the devil to do what she wants as long as she shows up on the arm of Trump every now and then.

WORST...

FLOTUS...

EVER.

A pre-recorded message to deliver platitudes that won't mean or amount to anything? No thank you.

For the 8 years she was FLOTUS. Sad her garden has been plowed under.

Melania Trump is worthless.

possibly add? Hiding for three months in some bunker. Doing nothing to alleviate or soothe Americans problems. She is not a first lady.

26. CNN is doing this? Why?

Good grief. Is it for comedic value or what? Pre-recorded? Let me see this woman face a panel and be questioned about the content of her remarks.

She couldn’t handle that and that, therefore, means she does not have command of the subject. So she should STFU! She should stick to her “other” talents.

27. First Lazy Melanie is truly the most useless First Lady I have seen in my lifetime.

I can't imagine what information, comfort, or inspiration this birther bigot could offer at this point. She has squandered her opportunity to become a beloved and admired public figure over the past 3 and a half years, and chose to be an aloof, distant sphinx trotted out for display on ceremonial occasions and to dispense the occasional empty "be best" bromide. She has been totally insulated from the impact of covid-19 and has not experienced any of the illness, grief, financial devastation, inconvenience, anxiety about the present and future, forced separation from loved ones, etc. that most other Americans are going through. She has no credentials or knowledge base from which to educate us, and she can't even play a credible "First Mom" role for those frazzled and stressed out parents who have been juggling work from home, doing their housework, managing kids who are suddenly at home instead of in the classroom, etc. while trying to figure out how to shop for groceries without getting sick or where they can score household essentials. Who do they they think would be interested in watching this?

Can’t she Zoom like everybody else?
