Gee, what would Father’s Day be without the likes of washed up comedian/troll Kathy Griffin making a fool of herself? Her target this time was First Lady Melania Trump after she released a statement calling for a bipartisan effort on Capitol Hill to put an end to President Trump’s enforcement of a “zero-tolerance” policy toward illegal border crossings. That policy was put in place by the Bush administration and kicked into high gear by the Obama administration. So, I find it ironic that Laura Bush would pen an emotional opinion piece in the Washington Post this weekend begging Trump to put an end to it. As far as Melania goes, she was actually calling on the Democrats to support a Republican bill that would end the separation and that is what ticked Griffin off.
Griffin tweeted, “F*ck you, Melanie. You know damn well your husband can end this immediately…you feckless complicit piece of sh*t.” Classy as always. She thought she was being so very clever trolling President Trump for making a Twitter typo calling his wife “Melanie” when saying she was recovering following a kidney procedure in May.
The hypocrisy is hip deep these days. And while first ladies are calling for the policy to end, let me bring a little clarity to this situation. When we have criminals break the law here in the US, do we have them stay in prison with their children? Of course not. So, why is everyone clamoring to give illegal aliens, who are breaking the law, the right to stay with their children? I don’t get this and the reason is that it is just duplicitous and insane.
Fuck you, Melanie. You know damn well your husband can end this immediately…you feckless complicit piece of shit. https://t.co/5NsoFgMuLr

Griffin’s tweet also was in reference to the controversy sparked by fellow comedian Samantha Bee’s use of the phrase “feckless c**t” to describe First Daughter Ivanka Trump last month.
Melania feels for the children who are separated from their parents over this. But not because they are abused. They are given soft, comfy beds, clothes, hot meals, medical care and are taught English and other studies while away from their parents. The left is screaming because they only get a couple of hours outside a day. That’s because they are in school and doing chores and they know it. It’s sad they are away from those they love, but their parents are de facto criminals who broke the law and that should override every other consideration here.
The Department of Homeland Security confirmed last week that almost 2,000 minors were separated from their guardians at the US border between April 19 and May 31 since the Trump administration implemented a policy to prosecute all illegal immigrants. “Mrs. Trump hates to see children separated from their families and hopes both sides of the aisle can finally come together to achieve successful immigration reform,” Stephanie Grisham, the first lady’s communications director, said in a statement shared with the Washington Examiner. “She believes we need to be a country that follows all laws, but also a country that governs with heart.” And that is correct, but it does not mean that the children stay with parents who are being adjudicated because they have violated the rule of law.
Melania’s caring statement did not warrant this vicious, vile attack from Kathy Griffin. All of this began when the left started floating pictures of children in cages. Those pictures were taken during Obama’s tenure, not Trump’s. Children are not treated that way under this presidency. Senior White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway also slammed the media for fanning the hysteria and even comparing the conditions to Nazi concentration camps. Even General Hayden who served under President Bush as the head of the NSA and CIA and Michael Steele who headed up the RNC at one point were comparing this to concentration camps and saying our children could be next. For shame.

Democratic Texas Rep. Henry Cuellar admitted in an interview with CNN that Obama covered up the child migrant crisis during his two-term presidency. “It was kept very quiet under the Obama Administration. There were large numbers of people coming in. The Obama administration was trying to keep this quiet,” he said. And crickets from the Democratic Party until President Trump was elected and decided to stop the open borders policy and restore the rule of law and our nation’s sovereignty. Department of Homeland Security officials fired back at CNN allegations that it “ripped’” a breastfeeding baby from its mother in a denial on Friday. “We do not separate babies from adults,” a DHS official told reporters. “It’s a bright line.” The left is now going around demanding they be let into ICE facilities where children are kept now as if they have the moral high ground. What a joke.
Regardless of what Kathy Griffin says, it’s not the president who needs to stop this. It is a bipartisan Congress coming together and agreeing on an immigration bill. But they won’t do that even though Trump has compromised far more than I personally like with the left on it. They want riots and chaos in the streets. It’s straight out of Saul Alinsky’s play book and it is what communists do to get their way.
Per Breitbart, “Trump’s “zero tolerance” policy is to prosecute all illegal border crossers, including illegal alien adults who cross the border with children, results in border-crossing parents having their children taken into federal custody. This is a loophole known as the Flores Settlement Agreement. The Republican-controlled Congress and Democrats have yet to come to an agreement to close the legal loophole in order for child border crossers to remain in federal custody with their parents.” Personally, I’m good with them being separated, but that’s just me.
Kathy Griffin was silent when the Obama administration enforced the same policy at the US-Mexico border. She is a bitter harpy that just keeps on trying to take her revenge on the Trumps because they wouldn’t pay attention to her. She’s not funny and she’s pretty much treasonous. She’s trying to stay relevant and in the spotlight by taking vicious, hate-filled swipes at First Lady Melania Trump and others. Just pathetic.
I guess @KathyGriffin thinks calling for Democrats & Republicans to work together to fix our immigration policies is a crime? What has happened to politics in this country—can we not even have a serious conversation without being vulgar? https://t.co/ZzTP9taBkc

Yup. I stand by my tweet. The First Lady Melanie’s statement was disgraceful. https://t.co/K9s5S9DOMx

Save some of that vitriol for Michelle Obama, whose husband Barack Obama–in accordance with the law, did exactly, precisely the same thing. Children are separated from parents upon arrest of the parents. This is true everywhere in the US. This is manufactured partisan outrage.

ATTN: @SecretService I sincerely believe Kathy Griffin needs behavioral counseling, before she possibly attempts to harm the @POTUS and/or his family. She apologized for her erratic behavior, before, but obviously she didn't mean it. https://t.co/8QwIn0oBnC

First Lady is class and your not. Your what’s wrong even if you were right about the policy aspects. You play to the lowest nature and become what you charge others for.
