When Donald Trump won the 2016 election, everyone knew the attacks were coming. The hysteria over President Trump’s every move since that day as been unprecedented. Even more troubling, Democrats seem to be making up scandals as they go. Perhaps nothing personifies the hysteria better than Trump’s mythical Russian connection, which Democrats have been unable to prove.
Of course, it’s not just made up scandals liberals are crying over. Every move President Trump makes, even the most mundane, results in hysterical reactions. Trump can’t even play a round of golf without someone attacking him for it. It’s a bit hypocritical, since liberals didn’t show much concern when President Obama hit the links over 300 times while in office.
Some might say the criticism comes with the territory. While that might be true, typically a president’s family is given more breathing room. Sadly, that hasn’t been the case for Melania Trump. In fact, the newest liberal attack might be a new low.
From The Hill:
More than 200,000 people have signed a petition calling for first lady Melania Trump to either move to the White House or pay for the security costs associated with her protection at Trump Tower.
While the country faces important issues, liberals are concerned about the living arrangement of the First Family. Makes sense.
Of course, they tried to paint their concerns as mere fiscal responsibility:
“The U.S. taxpayer is paying an exorbitant amount of money to protect the First Lady in Trump Tower, located in New York City,” the Change.org petition says.
“As to help relieve the national debt, this expense yields no positive results for the nation and should be cut from being funded,” it adds.
Right… because liberals were so concerned about the national debt while Obama was spending us into the oblivion. In reality, liberals are still salty about losing the election, finding anything they can to attack Trump on. In truth, protecting the First Family is just a drop in the bucket concerning the federal budget, their are bigger fish to fry. Yet suddenly the party of “free” college and “free” healthcare is concerned about the financial burden of protecting Melania Trump? Get a grip.
What makes this worse is that Melania has good reason to remain in New York. Eleven-year-old Barron Trump is trying to finish out the school year before being uprooted to a new city. His father running for and winning the presidency is a major life disruption for an 11-year-old, so letting him finish off his current school year is the responsible thing to do.
Of course, don’t expect liberals to grasp this either. If you thought an 11-year-old was off limits to criticism, liberals have already proven you wrong there as well. If the last name is Trump, the left is out for blood, children be damned.
The petition is just another petty witch hunt by the left. While President Trump works on the agenda that got him elected, liberals are concerned about the whereabouts of his wife and how many rounds of golf he plays. No wonder they got crushed at the polls.
