It's like I said a few weeks ago about Ivanka's supposedly poorly-timed social media posts (pics w/ her kid when the child separation issue first popped-up): I just assume everything they do is a giant troll job. Melania endeavoring to end online abuse. Really? Come the horsefeathers on. This is a family of garbage people, through & through. I'll never believe they have good intentions in anything they do.

I know how this one goes.

When people call her out on how insensitive it is, they can say "oh, we're criticizing a woman for how she dresses now?! How petty!" and if they're lucky they can make that argument the headline for three days.

Completely ignoring how often they criticized Michelle Obama for how she dressed

Yep. Never mind how insensitive it appears. However, I think she’s a subversive and sending a nasty message to Trump. No evidence but my want-it-to-be-true. Someone in the WH told her not to go. I also don’t think Trump wrote that tweet. We may never know until she decided to write her biography.

Whenever I feel the slightest inkling to give Melania the benefit of the doubt, I just recall this:

It's always been clear what Sessions & Miller intended to do. Why else has the former continued to take the horsefeathers heaped upon him by the Great Cheeto? He was getting his ducks in a row to implement all this horsefeathers.

I'm bowing out of this conversation after this, but again, come the horsefeathers on. Troll is trolling.

If this doesn't get people's attention, I may actually consider my options for exiting the country.

I get the feeling that if Barron was taken from Donald and Melania because Melania is an illegal immegrant, the Trumps wouldn't care.

Honestly, just start. Cuz it won't make any more of an impact than anything else has.

This is the kind of sneaky big thing that will likely get zero traction; Big Soybean basically relies on China at this point, and China is gearing up to cut that off because of this petulant trade war nonsense, going so far as to start ordering farmers to prep their lands for long term soybean growth and harvesting.
