While this story is not the most important one regarding the First Family, as they are currently in quarantine due to the President and First Lady testing positive for the Chinese coronavirus (and I pray for a speedy recovery for the both of them), this is a story that shows both how unethical and pathetic CNN is.
Last Thursday, CNN’s Anderson Cooper held a segment with a former friend of Melania’s, Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, who secretly recorded messages she had with the First Lady to write a tell-all book (which I won’t reference because I don’t want to draw attention to it after what this backstabber did).
In this segment, CNN played various clips of calls the First Lady had with Wolkoff, ranging from things such as the migrant children held in shelters to the arranging of Christmas decorations.
The WORST thing that CNN pulled from the clips was Melania complaining about having to decorate the White House with Christmas decorations and hosting parties with people she barely knows.
But we’ll get to that in a moment. First, let’s talk about Jerk-… err, I mean, Wolkoff, and the things that she said on this segment with Cooper. During the interview, she criticized and outright insulted Melania, Donald and their supporters, saying things like: “You know, she’s complicit in everything that’s going on,” and “We are watching our democracy turned into a dictatorship at this point. And it’s a brainwash type of cultish,” as well as “The traditions of First Lady and President have gone out the window with this couple.”
That first thing, ironically, inadvertently helps push back against a bogus narrative that the Left had been pushing for a few years now: that Melania was constantly at odds with her husband or that she doesn’t even like him. The media, whenever they get an opportunity, will lie about how Melania “refused to hold the president’s hand” or some such nonsense, trying to drive a wedge between the married couple. It’s absolute nonsense and that first comment by Wolkoff, while she tried to attack Melania, inadvertently helped her out (which is a constant theme in this news story).
Melania being “complicit” in these things shows her support. Funny enough, Cooper asks Wolkoff about this, asking “Is [Melania] a cheerleader for the president? Is she a supporter of the president? Does she like the president?”
Normally, asking if the First Lady supports or likes the president would be an incredibly asinine question to ask, but since we are talking about the fake news media, nothing is off the table for these jackals. At any rate, Wolkoff answered: “Yes, she actually does, very much so. I mean, Melania holds a role like no other person in the White House. I mean, anyone, she doesn’t shake in her boots ever. And she tells Donald exactly how she feels. She is his biggest cheerleader. And she does believe that, if he’s going to do it, he better do it right. And you better do it with brass knuckles, and he better do it now. And those are her words.”
I’m sorry, but wasn’t she supposed to be lambasting Melania for… something? I mean, she’s writing a tell-all book about the Trump family in the White House, siding with the Left and trying to paint the First Couple as a highly dysfunctional and horrid couple whom should not be allowed another four years in the White House, so why is she making Melania look good and speaking well about her here?
Does she not know that that’s the message she’s sending here? Does she not know she’s helping the First Lady? Saying that “she doesn’t shake in her boots” is not an insult at any capacity – in fact, it’s a massive compliment that describes Melania as tough and resilient in the face of adversity.
I guess even when you’re trying to insult Melania, you have to give her respect.
At any rate, as far as the other two comments go, about the “turning democracy into a dictatorship and it’s brainwashing cult stuff” and “traditions are dead with this couple,” might I suggest these people find a new script? They’ve been calling Trump “Hitler” since before the 2016 election, asserted that he’s a dictator (if he was, they wouldn’t be able to say that he was) and that the people who support him are part of a “cult”, meanwhile the Left tells people to raise their fists in “solidarity” with BLM and that they have to “#VoteBlueNoMatterWho” among other things that paint THEM as the cult.
So there isn’t much point in me going over those things because this is something the Left always claims about Trump and something I have always pushed back against because it’s absurd. Not to mention that I have other things that I want to get to and I don't want this article to be extremely lengthy.
Moving on to the actual clips, first we have the one about the migrant children being held in shelters at the southern border:
Melania is heard saying: “All these kids that I met, they were – they are here in the shelters because they were brought by it through coyotes. The people who were trafficking. And that’s why they put them in jail. And the kids that they go in shelters and the way they take care of them, it’s, you know, they even said the kids, they say, 'wow, I will have my own bed, I will sleep on the bed, I will have a cabinet for my clothes.' It’s so sad to hear it, but they have – they didn’t have that in their own countries. They sleep on the floor. They are, you know – they are taking care nicely there. But, you know, yes, they are not with their parents, it’s sad. But you when they come here alone, or with coyotes, or illegally, you know, you need to, you need to do something. And a lot of, you know, a lot of like moms and kids, they are teaching how to do it, they go over and they say like, 'oh, we will be killed by a gang member, we will be the – you know, we will be it’s – so dangerous.' So they are allowed to stay here. Do you understand what I mean?”
Funny enough, despite the fact that Wolkoff inadvertently pushed back on the idea that Melania is against her husband, they play that off as Melania being against her husband on the issue of the children held in shelters at the southern border. At no point did Melania even slightly come off as being against her husband on this. She showed her humanity, that she was sad about the situation altogether and how the children, for the first time, had beds to themselves in a SHELTER. She blamed the coyotes who TRAFFICK the children into the U.S., not her husband’s policies regarding illegal immigration.
Matter of fact, in the next bit is when she further sides with her husband.
In a bit of a back and forth with Wolkoff (which I won’t bother writing what Wolkoff said during the call since it’s not relevant), Melania said:
“They say I’m complicit, I’m the same like him, I support him. I don’t say enough. I don’t do enough. Where I am. I put – I’m working… my ass off at Christmas stuff that, you know, who gives a [expletive] about Christmas stuff and decoration, but I need to do it right?”
That’s the part where the Left was attacking her for “hating Christmas stuff and decorations” or whatever, which clearly shows that it is rather annoying to put up the Christmas decorations (something everyone who has done it can relate to. We still do it because we love Christmas, of course, but still). It’s annoying to do that in a regular house, now imagine doing that in THE WHITE HOUSE. A lot of planning has to go into it and there is a lot that needs to be covered and it’s almost entirely up to the First Lady to do this.
Which, you would think, given how much of a feminist these Leftists are, they would support Melania on this and say that it’s “beneath the office of the First Lady to decorate the White House for Christmas” or how it’s a sign of “the patriarchy holding power over the First Lady” or something, but no, they can’t even think to do that. They HAVE to side against the Trumps no matter what, so this angle is completely missed by them.
Anyway, getting back to the clip, Melania continued: “And Ok. And then I do it. And I said I’m working on Christmas planning for the Christmas. And they said, ‘oh, what about the children? They were separated.’ Give me a break. Where are they saying anything when Obama did that? I cannot go. I was trying to get the kid reunited with the mom, I didn’t have a chance, needs to go through the process and through the law.”
Cooper, completely disregarding the jab at Obama’s policy regarding putting kids in cages (much like the rest of the fake news media did when it was discovered that the photos taken of kids in cages were from 2014), attacked Melania for the comment regarding the Christmas decorations.
It’s asinine and a non-attack. Anyone who has decorated their house for Christmas knows the labor that has to be put into it. I decorate my house during Christmas and don’t have to put too much planning into how I want things to look, as long as they look fine. I can’t imagine having to decorate THE WHITE HOUSE and having to put a ton of work into just planning things out. That’s the job of the First Lady.
That Cooper and the rest of the fake news media tried to make a story out of that is really telling that they have NOTHING.
The call also discussed that infamous jacket that Melania wore during one of the visits to those shelters, where her jacket read: “I don’t care, do you?” Wolkoff brought up the jacket in the phone call, asking Melania: “So what prompted you to want to buy that jacket?”
And this is the truly great part that makes me love Melania even more: “I’m driving liberals crazy, that’s for sure. And that’s, you know, that’s what – and they deserve it. You understand.”
Brilliant! She likes to troll the Left much like her husband! Love it.
In any case, like I said, the fake news media had nothing here. Wolkoff comes off as a horrible friend, secretly recording a private conversation she had with Melania in order to profit off of her, and the fake news media comes off as unethical for playing it.
Not surprising that they played it, considering they’ve also played that Access Hollywood tape and the secret recordings made by Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen, but those things all show how unethical they are. Not that we need much more evidence of this after four years of spreading the Russia hoax.
In revealing these calls, they made Melania more relatable. They displayed how saddened she was to see children whose lives were marginally BETTER BEING INSIDE A SHELTER by them merely having a bed to sleep in and a cabinet to put their clothes in. Wolkoff, during the segment, complimented (likely inadvertently) Melania for her resilience. They displayed how she has to do a tough task of decorating the White House for Christmas, which is cumbersome for anyone who has decorated their house. They showed that she understood perfectly that Obama did much worse in terms of taking care of migrant children at the border but that the fake news media never covers that fact, and they showed that she has no respect for the Left with her trolling of them, which makes her even more relatable (for many, though obviously, not all).
I hope and pray that the president and First Lady recover quickly and swiftly from the Chinese coronavirus, that they only display mild symptoms, and that they take Hydroxychloroquine and tell people how it helped them recover.
The First Family is great.
