Melania Trump makes surprise visit to border facilities

Source: CNN

First lady Melania Trump touched down in McAllen, Texas, Thursday making a publicly unannounced and hastily planned trip to get a first-hand look at the crisis affecting immigrant families at the US border.

In doing so, she becomes the first Trump family member to personally witness the situation that has captured the country's attention over the past several weeks.
"She wants to see what's real," said the first lady's spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham told CNN during a 10-minute press briefing en route to Texas. "She wanted to see as close to what she had been seeing on TV. She wants to see a realistic view of what's happening."

Find out what your putrid husband is hiding with all those babies that those places wont let anyone see, Melania. Do some good for a change.

20. Let's admit it she is nothing more than a trophy wife.

I really don't give one rat's ass for what this pack of trash does. She is supporting a con-man, liar, racist, homophobe, amoral, bastard of the first order. She is aiding a demagogue whose constituency swallowed his horseshit because they are just as dedicated to racism as he is. He is a damn fascist that visions of transforming the presidency into an authoritarian dictatorship.

to decide what to wear? Check HER immigration status while she is there. She entered the country on a visitor visa, worked (as an escort and nude model for a pimp) then stayed.

She's not going there to see anything real, just a staged production that's a total lie. She has zero truth in her and this is a drumpf ploy, not her plan at all. Count on it being total BS.

35. With her "genius visa" citizenship, and her own parents becoming citizens through "chain migration."

I'll bet they aren't fluent in English, either, since Barron is supposedly fluent in Slovenian and they reportedly spend a lot of time with him and speak that language with him.

So yeah. i don't trust her either. Her birther stance was more Republican hypocrisy... and racism. (Plus.. for godsakes, she married that vile thing.)

But I will not completely discount the possibility that Melania has formed an opinion against it and siding with the Four First Ladies. We'll see what results from the visit.

36. I agree

After her hubby was criticized enough for his perpetual cyber bullying, she was trotted out to anounce some big new anti-cyber bullying campaign. Hmmm....I wonder how that's going.

After first reports of child separations started she announces a new campaign "Be Best". A confusing mix of fighting the dangers of social media combined with opioid abuse aimed at young people.

And now this trip. It's also a way to fool his easily fooled base that he had nothing to do with it. (Even though he gets 100% support for it from his followers). I wouldn't be surprised if they held a press conference together, her and Donald, after she returns, her to blab on about some general goal for the well being of all children in the world to be best. And then the Don steps up to once again pronounce how he will end the suffering of the little children from the evil Democrats in Congress that are jailing them. A new reality episode for his TV addicts.

This was a Lutheran facility that had been outsourced by HHS.
She asked a few sanitized questions and then was, purportedly, going to see where the babies were.
We will see what kind of facility she got taken to.
My money is on a glowing report where she glorifies Unser donald.

49. Would cost much less to keep parents & children together. Not to mention costs years from now.


Some of those children will be so damaged they will require years of care at great expense.

Some will be damaged as teens and adults and commit lots of crime that would not have been committed, at great cost to victims and of law enforcement, prosecution, and incarceration.

early this morning. They were talking about all the activity during the night. Trucks coming and going, shipments of stuff coming in, etc. They had been keeping an eye on the place watching for kids arriving. I told my husband I bet they were going to let cameras in and were designing a nice set. Lo and behold, Melania arrives "unexpectedly." Right. Add that to the BS list.

your nothing but a show, and the media right now is having a fucking field day trying to normalize this shit your shit of some type of compassion............I'm not buying this bull shit.

Do you know what it is like to be with a serial abuser, I mean do you really understand, I know what it was like.....................did you ask your abuser husband if the kids that may have disabilities being held in chair chained and then given shots of what ever the fuck they are giving them in these concentration camp interment centers, make some of these "kids" admit they belong to a gang, when they don't, they are given drugs to make them docile and admit to anything ................just so that your pathological flaming fucking husband can go on the tv that is trying to normalize your and his bull shit of caring that they are "animals".

Dear Melania, do you sit at the same fucking dinner table and speak to this asshole on what he did today and yesterday, .................that's what I want to know.

I fucking what to know if you sat down at the dinner table to discuss his fucking behavior...........................and if you can't answer that simple question ................FUCK YOU

She went to a camp where older boys are kept. This is in keeping with Trump propaganda that immigrants are MS-13 gang members. They only want to show older boys on TV to further that narrative, not babies or girls. And Melanoma is right on board with and helping to further that racist narrative.
