The powers-that-be at Fox News have read the tea leaves (i.e. the election results) and come to the conclusion that Donald Trump will indeed be a failed one-term (and impeached) president whose main claim to fame as POTUS is that he gave the richest Americans a massive tax cut and sat by idly as over 300,000 of us died from a pandemic he refused to control.
So, now that Trump is heading for the exit, it’s time for Trump TV to try and write their version of “history” by extolling the many virtues of the departing First Lady, Melania Trump, who came to the job after being a nude model, a gold digger, and the mother of Donald’s last child.
In a disgustingly absurd op-ed posted on the Fox News website, former GOP Wisconsin Congressman Jason Chaffetz extols Melania’s virtues, writing:
“Mrs. Trump deserves to be recognized as an exceptional first lady. With little fanfare and tremendous pushback from some of the most vocal segments of society, she managed to launch a successful anti-bullying campaign, conduct important outreach abroad, protect her teenage son from relentless bullying, and serve as an inspiration to those trying to integrate into American culture. All without making any major missteps.”
Really, Jason? What has the woman actually done other than whine about having to decorate the White House for Christmas and mock immigrant children placed in internment camps by wearing a jacket that read, “I really don’t care, do you?”
But Chaffetz was only getting warmed up, puckering his lips and placing them squarely against Melania’s rump as he swooned:
“In light of the coronavirus pandemic, the rise of virtual schooling, and the outbreaks of violence in some American cities over the last year, these issues needed and deserved the attention brought by the first lady. This effort, in combination with good public policy from the Trump administration, coincided with a drop in drug overdose deaths and in increase in life expectancy.”
Chaffetz also managed to get in the ubiquitous line all conservatives use when discussing Melania: She speaks five languages. Really? Then how come no one has ever heard her speak them? And why is her English still so shitty considering how long she’s been an American citizen? A freaking African parrot with a multilingual owner also speaks more than one language, but that does that doesn’t make it a nuclear physicist.
To put it another way, Jason and his apologists in the Republican guild of liars need to stick a sock in it and take a damn chair. Melanoma will be forgotten in a few months. She’s a pathetic excuse of a human being and is married to a monster. Be best? No. BE QUIET!
