Butch Intelwars Melania Trump Pastor Sermon weight Wives

Pastor under fire for sermon telling wives to ‘lose weight’ and look ‘hot,’ not ‘like a butch’

A Missouri pastor has taken a leave of absence from his church amid backlash after he went viral for a sermon where he made controversial comments telling married women how to keep up their looks, warning that otherwise their husbands might stray.

Stewart-Allen Clark told the wives of his congregation that he doesn’t expect them to look like former First Lady Melania Trump — whom he called “the epic trophy wife of all time” — but “you don’t need to look like a butch, either.”

What are the details?

On Sunday, Clark preached to the First General Baptist Church in Malden, Missouri, about his views on the importance of having an “attractive wife,” telling women to practice “weight control,” warning them against wearing sweatpants too much and not giving their husbands “a reason to be looking around.”

The pastor said he doesn’t think women have the “capacity” or “ability to understand how visual men are.”

Clark reasoned, “”Ladies, it’s the way God made us,” telling his audience, “It’s the way we are. Men are going to look. He made us to look. You want them to be looking at you. Don’t let yourself go.”

“Now, look, I’m not saying every woman can be the epic, the epic trophy wife of all time, like Melania Trump — I’m not saying that at all,” Clark said at one point, posting a picture of Mrs. Trump on the screen. “Most women can’t be trophy wives… but maybe a participation trophy.”

He added, “I don’t know, but all I can say is not everybody looks like that! Amen! But you don’t need to look like a butch, either!”

The video of Clark’s message was posted online, and it sparked outrage from social media users who branded it “misogynistic” and “offensive,” according to The Daily Mail.

By Monday, General Baptist Ministries, the national organization for Clark’s denomination, issued a statement saying that their council had met to “address concerns” from Clark’s sermon after it “received significant exposure.”

“The sermon included comments that are not consistent with the position and values of General Baptists,” the organization wrote, noting that Clark had resigned from his position as the slated moderator for their upcoming July meeting.

GBM added, “General Baptists believe that every woman was created in the image of God, and they should be valued for that reason. Furthermore, we believe that all individuals regardless of any other factors are so loved by God that Christ died for them.”

The Kansas City Star reported that on Tuesday, Clark took a leave from his church.

Intelwars Melania Trump Outrage Racism Tim matheson Twitter Twitter reactions Xenophobia

Hollywood actor slammed for xenophobic tweet mocking Melania Trump’s accent

Actor Tim Matheson faced swift backlash after insulting Melanie Trump over her foreign accent that some deemed to be “xenophobic.” The 73-year-old Hollywood actor, who is best known for his role as Eric “Otter” Stratton in the movie “National Lampoon’s Animal House,” tried to tweet his way out of trouble for ridiculing the former first lady.

While delivering a compliment to first lady Jill Biden, Matheson took a shot at Melania, who grew up in Slovenia before leaving for Italy after she signed a contract with a modeling agency in Milan at age 18.

In the since-deleted tweet, Matheson wrote, “So wonderful to have a First Lady with class and heart. And, can speak English!”

Matheson attempted to smooth over the degrading affront against Melania by saying, “This morning I made a hasty and stupid joke about the former First Lady. It wasn’t funny, and it was in poor taste. It was regretful and humorless and I apologize.”

However, Twitter users pointed out that Matheson also deleted a previous tweet where he doubled-down on maligning Melania.

“Comedy is sometimes cruelly honest,” the thespian maintained. “The ex-First Lady doesn’t have any of my respect for anything. Sorry.”

Matheson, who played Vice President John Hoynes on the TV drama “The West Wing,” was shellacked with retribution from online commenters over his denigratory jab.

One Twitter user replied, “It’s because you’re an out of touch actor no surprise. Stay ignorant ya racist.”

Another person burst out, “You’re a xenophobe and bigot. Your comments open yourself and any company you work for to discrimination lawsuits. I hope your victims of workplace harassment and discrimination come forward.”

A son of immigrants schooled the actor, “Tim, my parents were doctors in Cuba who came to the US escaping Castro. After years of hard work they got their MD’s again and practiced for 30 years. Still, throughout their professional lives here there were always fools like you who mocked their accents.”

One critic added, “Yeah, showing your true colors. Love immigrants until they get here and become Americans and don’t think the way you think they should and then you loathe them.”

This isn’t the first time a liberal Hollywood actor attacked Melania over her accent. Bette Midler bashed the former first lady in August for Melania’s speech during the Republican National Convention.

#beBest is back! A UGE bore! She can speak several words in a few languages. Get that illegal alien off the stage!” Middler mocked Melania. “Oh, God. She still can’t speak English.”

Middler was also smashed with backlash for her xenophobia.

Middler then attempted to justify the hateful remarks by saying, “Just giving them a taste of their own immigrant bashing medicine.”

Following even more outrage, Middler finally bent the knee and mustered up an apology.

“Well, all hell has broken loose because I said Melania ‘still can’t speak English’ last night,” she tweeted. “I was wrong to make fun of her accent. America is made up people who speak with all kinds of accents, and they are all welcomed always.”

First lady Melania Trump issues a farewell message in video statement emphasizing unity and peace over hatred

First lady Melania Trump issued a farewell statement in a video address posted Monday that called for Americans to unite and reject hatred and division.

“My fellow Americans it has been the honor of my life to serve as first lady of the Unites States,” said the first lady.

“The past few years have been unforgettable. As Donald and I conclude our time in the White House, I think of all of the people I have taken home in my heart, and their incredible stories of love, patriotism, and determination,” she continued.

Trump thanked the military, members of law enforcement and teachers. She also addressed the coronavirus pandemic.

Trump went on to say that she was proud of her “Be Best” initiative and called on Americans to be ambassadors of the goals of her program.

“The promise of this nation belongs to all of us. Do not lose sight of your integrity and values. Use every opportunity to show consideration for another person, and build good habits into our daily lives,” she said.

She exhorted Americans to “focus on what unites us, to raise above what divides us, to always choose love over hatred, peace over violence, and others before yourself.

“Together as one national family we can continue to the light of hope for future generations, and carry on America’s legacy of rising our nation through greater heights through our spirit of courage, goodness, and faith. No words can express the depth of my gratitude for the privilege of having served as your first lady,” she concluded. “To all the people of this country, you will be in my heart forever.”

President Donald Trump is not expected to attend the inauguration. The Trumps are expected to leave Washington, D.C., Wednesday morning and fly to his Palm Beach, Florida, resort, Mar-a-Lago.

President-elect Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden will assume the White House on Inauguration Day, Jan. 20.

2020 Christmas tree Intelwars Melania Trump WHITE HOUSE

First lady Melania Trump accepts delivery of official White House Christmas tree

First lady Melania Trump celebrated the arrival of the official White House Christmas tree on Monday, kicking off the 2020 holiday season.

What are the details?

“Today I welcomed the arrival of the beautiful @WhiteHouse Christmas Tree!” the first lady tweeted. “We are excited to begin decorating the People’s House for the holiday season!

WPRI-TV reported that the Fraser fir is nearly 20 feet tall, and came from a West Virginia tree farm owned by Dan and Anne Taylor, who won this year’s National Christmas Tree Association’s Grand Champion Grower Award. The tree arrived at the White House in a horse-drawn carriage, pulled by two Clydesdales named Winston and Bud while a military band played “Hark the Herald Angels Sing” and “O Tannenbaum.”

The first lady accepted the tree’s arrival at the north portico.

According to the New York Post, Mrs. Trump told reporters “Merry Christmas” in response to their “shouted questions about how the president is doing.”

The White House will move forward with hosting holiday gatherings this year, but with added precautions because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Stephanie Grisham, Mrs. Trump’s spokeswoman and chief of staff, told NBC News, “Attending the parties will be a very personal choice. It is a longstanding tradition for people to visit and enjoy the cheer and iconic décor of the annual White House Christmas celebrations.”

Grisham said that guest lists will be smaller than in previous years, and that mask-wearing will be required.

The outlet reported:

The decision to move forward with indoor events and other gatherings comes as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, top White House advisers and public health professionals across the nation have been pleading with Americans not to travel for Thanksgiving or spend the holiday with people from outside of their households.

Anything else?

The arrival of the White House Christmas tree kicked off the holiday season, just a few days before Thanksgiving.

On Tuesday, President Donald Trump is set to pardon two turkeys named Corn and Cob during the traditional White House ceremony. As of Monday, the lucky birds were staying in the nearby luxurious Willard International Hotel.

WUSA-TV reported that the “poultry duo rolled up in a chauffeured car and walked a red carpet to the entrance of the Willard Hotel. They were escorted into their suite where, they too, jumped on the bed.”

The Trumps will celebrate Thanksgiving at the White House, breaking a tradition of traveling to Florida to spend Thanksgiving at Mar-a-Lago.

Former Melania Trump hairstylist blows apart leftist narrative on the state of first couple’s marriage

A former hairstylist to Melania Trump says that the first lady is “funny, warm, and intelligent,” according to the Daily Mail.

What are the details?

British hairstylist Lino Carbosiero, who began styling Melania in 2019, said that she and President Donald Trump are “loving and giggly” when they’re together.

The outlet reports that Carbosiero and his team of stylists and assistants love working with the president and first lady and say that the two have a certain chemistry together and a loving relationship to boot.

Appearing on British TV show “Lorraine,” Carbosiero said that Melania is a “warm” person who is “really intelligent, and has a great sense of humor.”

“I see a completely different side to what people try and say about her,” Carbosiero explained. “She is so warm and considerate. … She constantly asks assistants if they’re OK, if they need a drink. She will hug you, her team love her. They love him too, actually.”

Carbosiero added that the couple has a certain “cheekiness” when they’re together.

“They are very loving as well,” he explained. “I’ve seen that, my assistant has as well. … They really have this little bond, they giggle and laugh and it’s really sweet, actually.”

Carbosiero said that the first couple typically acts more reserved in public because they are so heavily judged and always in the spotlight.

“I see how they are always so guarded because everyone is always so judgmental in their life,” he said. “They are judged so much it almost makes them a little bit reserved.”

‘A very strange marriage’

Carbosiero’s announcement comes just a week after former White House aide and “Apprentice” star Omarosa Manigault Newman claimed that the president and his wife have a “very strange marriage.”

“I’m very cautious to comment on the dynamics of a marriage because you never know what goes on behind closed doors,” she admitted. “But I have known this couple since they were dating, they got married a year after ‘The Apprentice’ aired. What I have observed in the last 17 years would make your head spin. Sometimes they like each other, but sometimes she is repulsed by him.”

First lady Melania Trump warns Joe Biden’s ‘socialist agenda’ would ‘destroy America’

First lady Melania Trump made a campaign speech Tuesday in Pennsylvania, making the case for voters to reelect her husband, President Donald Trump, and warning that Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s “socialist agenda” would “destroy America.”

Mrs. Trump was making her first solo trip of the 2020 campaign in the battleground state of Pennsylvania. The polls show Trump and Biden in a tight race in the state, the Associated Press reported. Biden also visited the state Monday.

What are the details?

“As an American, I am proud that we have a president who puts our country first,” Mrs. Trump told a crowd in Atglen, Pennsylvania. “Remember, we are a strong nation, again. With Donald Trump as president, we will be even stronger when we beat COVID-19.

“This election isn’t just about the next year,” the first lady continued. “It’s about the next four years, and beyond. It’s about continuing to set this country on a course of real prosperity and success. We can’t, and we shouldn’t, go backwards.”

Then, Mrs. Trump went after Biden directly, saying, “Joe Biden’s policy and socialist agenda will only serve to destroy America and all that has been built in the past four years.”

The first lady began her speech by thanking supporters for the well-wishes her family received after she, President Trump and their 14-year-old son, Barron, all contracted COVID-19. But she defended her husband’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic before declaring, “We don’t close down and hide in fear. We get to work to find real and lasting solutions.”

Mrs. Trump also took a swipe at the media during her talk, condemning their coverage of what she described as “idle gossip and palace intrigue” surrounding the White House.

You can watch the speech in its entirety below:

Anything else?

Not everyone was a fan of Mrs. Trump’s message.

The Associated Press reported:

Pennsylvania Democratic Chairwoman Nancy Patton Mills ridiculed Mrs. Trump’s campaign stop, saying the first lady would not have an answer for Pennsylvania’s soaring unemployment rate or why her husband’s administration has “stopped trying to combat a virus that’s killed 8,700 Pennsylvanians and counting.”

Barron Trump Coronavirus Intelwars Melania Trump Positive

First lady Melania Trump reveals son Barron tested positive for COVID-19

First lady Melania Trump revealed Wednesday that her son, Barron Trump, tested positive for the coronavirus but experienced no symptoms from the disease and has since tested negative.

What are the details?

In a news release giving an update on her own experience after testing positive for COVID-19, the first lady wrote that after she and President Donald Trump were both diagnosed with the virus, “Naturally my mind went immediately to our son.”

“To our great relief he tested negative, but again, as so many parents have thought over the past several months, I couldn’t help but think ‘what about tomorrow or the next day?'” she continued. “My fear came true when he was tested again and it came up positive. Luckily he is a strong teenager and exhibited no symptoms. In one way I was glad the three of us went through this at the same time so we could take care of one another and spend time together. He has since tested negative.”

Mrs. Trump also provided details of the symptoms she experienced, explaining, “I was very fortunate as my diagnosis came with minimal symptoms, though they hit me all at once and it seemed to be a roller-coaster of symptoms in the days after. I experienced body aches, a cough and headaches, and felt extremely tired most of the time. I chose to go a more natural route in terms of medicine, opting more for vitamins and healthy food.”

The first lady added, “I am happy to report that I have tested negative and hope to resume my duties as soon as I can.”

What did the president say?

After the news broke that Barron, 14, had tested positive but has since recovered, reporters asked President Trump about his youngest son’s condition. The president reassured the media that “Barron’s fine,” before declaring that “Amy’s doing a fantastic job” — presumably referring to his U.S. Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett, who was currently in her third day of confirmation hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Aide author book DOJ Intelwars Melania Trump Stephanie winston wolkoff Sues

DOJ sues former aide of First Lady Melania Trump over tell-all book

The U.S. Department of Justice has filed suit against Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, a former aide to First Lady Melania Trump, alleging that she violated their nondisclosure agreement by penning a tell-all book and publishing it without first allowing the federal government to sign off on the draft.

What are the details?

Reuters reported:

In a complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Washington, Justice Department lawyers said Winston Wolkoff, a former aide who fell out with the first lady, failed to submit to government review a draft of her book, “Melania and Me: The Rise and Fall of My Friendship with the First Lady,” which offers an unflattering portrayal of President Donald Trump’s wife.

According to the lawsuit, Winston Wolkoff signed a Gratuitous Services Agreement “wherein Ms. Wolkoff promised to maintain strict confidentiality over ‘nonpublic, privileged and/or confidential information’ that she might obtain during her service” as an adviser to the first lady.

Politico reported that the DOJ is asking a federal judge to “divert all proceeds from the sale of Wolkoff’s book, ‘Melania and Me,’ to the federal government, a consequence of her alleged ‘breach of contract.'”

Ms. Wolkoff argues that she has every right to talk about her experiences as a matter of free speech, telling NBC News of her book, “It’s my story. It’s my life. I’ve been gagged for too long.”

“The White House, President Trump, First Lady Melania Trump, the Trump administration have been the source of false, misleading and defamatory information about me,” she continued. “I am defending myself against the defamatory falsehoods according to my constitutional rights to defend my reputation and set the record straight.”

Anything else?

The case is reminiscent of when the DOJ sued former national security adviser John Bolton over the summer in an attempt to stop him from publishing his own book divulging his experiences in the Trump administration. In the lawsuit, the federal government argued that Bolton’s book, “The Room Where It Happened: A White House Memoir,” would jeopardize national security.

Unlike Wolkoff, Bolton did submit a draft of his book for review by the federal government, but copies were distributed to retailers by Bolton’s publisher prior to receiving the all-clear from authorities.

U.S. District Judge Royce Lamberth agreed to allow Bolton’s book to be published, saying that “the horse, as we used to say in Texas, seems to be out of the barn.”

Children detained at the border Christmas decorations First lady melania trump Intelwars Leaked melania trump tapes Melania tapes Melania Trump Melania trump tapes

Liberals pounce on leaked audio of Melania Trump talking about children at the border and her Christmas decorations

Liberals and other critics of the president pounced on a leaked audio of first lady Melania Trump talking to her former friend about reaction to her Christmas decorations and controversy around children detained at the border.

In the audio, which aired on CNN Thursday, the first lady can be heard angrily criticizing the reaction to her Christmas decorations, and complaining that the media wasn’t reporting on her efforts to help children detained at the border.

“They say I’m complicit. I’m the same like him. I support him. I don’t say enough. I don’t do enough,” said the first lady on the recording.

“Where I am, I put, I’m working like a, my ass off at, Christmas stuff that you know, who gives a f*** about Christmas stuff and decoration? But I need to do it, right?” she continued.

“OK, and then I do it, and I say that I’m working on Christmas planning for the Christmas. And they said, ‘oh what about the children that were separated.’ Give me a f***ing break. Where were they saying anything when Obama did that?” she said.

The first lady went on to complain that she tried to reunite a child with their mother but that the media refused to cover the story.

“I was trying to get the kids reunited with the mom. I didn’t have a chance. Needs to go through the process and through the law,” she said.

“They would not do the story because, they are not, they would not do the story, because they are against us, because they are liberal media. Yeah, if I go to Fox, they will do the story. I don’t want to go to Fox.”

Liberals pounce

While the first lady was clearly upset at the reaction from her critics, some like Muslim commentator Dean Obeidallah misrepresented her comments into something more sinister.

“After listening to the #MelaniaTapes where she says about the children separated at border ‘Give me a fu**ing break’ it’s clear that Melania’s jacket she wore to visit the kids was a comment on how she viewed the children: ‘I really don’t care,'” said Obeidallah.

“OMG!!!!!! @CNN is airing the #MelaniaTapes and they are horrific. Melania says kids love being in cages,” claimed LGBT activist Rob Gill.

“Oh. My. God,” reacted actress Alyssa Milano.

Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) took the opportunity to demand that the president and the first lady stop “disrespecting” Christians.

The Twitter hashtag “Melania Tapes” was trending nationally as a result of all the reactions Thursday evening.

Apology Bette Midler Donald Trump Hollywood leftists Intelwars Melania Trump Republican National Convention Xenophobia accusation

Bette Midler musters up mea culpa for her xenophobic remark about Melania Trump

As we’ve come to understand, left-wing entertainer Bette Midler can dish out the disses with the best of them — particularly when her target is President Donald Trump.

But it would appear that even a Hollywood icon like Midler isn’t always strong enough to withstand public outrage.

What happened?

See, when first lady Melania Trump headlined the second night of the Republican National Convention this week, Midler thought it would be a wise idea to live tweet her reactions.

And the insults flowed from Ms. Wind Beneath My Wings, who called the first lady an “illegal alien” and followed that barb by saying, “Oh, God. She still can’t speak English.”

Midler also compared her to a mail-order bride. “I’m surprised Trump wants to destroy the #PostOffice. He got all his wives from it,” she said.

What was the response?

Midler’s comments, particularly about Mrs. Trump’s English-speaking abilities, were met with massive backlash accusing her of racism and xenophobia:

  • “There is no one as racist and xenophobic as the tolerant left. To think that when I was growing up in Africa I fiercely admired you and many others who now are showing how low and hateful they can be. I’m ashamed for you,” one person said.
  • “As a Mexican immigrant I am very offended at your prejudice! My hard working parents with accents love and value this country! We put everything into what we do and do not expect to be treated unfairly because we may not sound like you ! Practice what you preach!” another person said.
  • “Oh hey look everyone… a washed up, dumpy old lady racist,” another person responded.
  • “She speaks 6 languages, English is one of them. How about you?” another person said.
  • “You are the epitome of everything you hate,” another person pointed out.
  • “Attacking an immigrant because of her accent. The loving and tolerant left,” another person responded.
  • “I’d rather listen to Melania speak than listen to you sing,” another person mocked.
  • “No, she’s just speaking with an accent. You, however, are a fool in any language,” Ben Shapiro said.
  • “An immigrant woman, who doesn’t have English as her first language, just got up on on a stage and was so gracious that she refused to attack classless people like you and instead focused on hope and positivity. I’ll take her accent over your ghoulishness any day,” another person said.

Doubling down — then crying ‘uncle!’

After the deluge of criticism, Midler appeared to double down and defend herself: “Just giving them a taste of their own immigrant bashing medicine.”

But just hours later it apparently became clear that she was going to lose this battle in the court of public opinion — and Midler apologized:

“Well, all hell has broken loose because I said Melania ‘still can’t speak English’ last night,” she tweeted Wednesday. “I was wrong to make fun of her accent. America is made up people who speak with all kinds of accents, and they are all welcomed always.”

Oh, Bette, did you ever know that you’re my hero — and everything I would like to be?

Bette Midler English Immigrant Intelwars Melania Trump RNC

Backlash is swift and intense when Bette Midler attacks Melania Trump: ‘She still can’t speak English’

Hollywood star Bette Midler learned the hard way not to attack first lady Melania Trump over her ability to speak English.

What’s the background?

The first lady headlined the second night of the Republican National Convention, delivering a well-received speech in which she urged Americans to unify while making the case that her husband, President Donald Trump, is the better of the 2020 presidential candidates.

“We all know Donald Trump makes no secrets about how he feels about things. Whether you like it or not, you always know what he’s thinking, and that is because he is an authentic person who loves this country and its people,” Mrs. Trump said.

What did Midler say?

While live-tweeting through the RNC speeches, Midler called the first lady an “illegal alien” — and mocked her ability to speak English.

#beBest is back! A UGE bore! She can speak several words in a few languages. Get that illegal alien off the stage!” Midler said.

She followed it up with, “Oh, God. She still can’t speak English.”

Later, Midler compared Melania to a mail-order bride. “I’m surprised Trump wants to destroy the #PostOffice. He got all his wives from it,” Midler said.

What was the response?

Midler’s comments, especially about Melania’s English-speaking abilities, triggered immediate backlash. That tweet in particular has received more than 50,000 comments as of Wednesday morning.

People were angry that Midler so callously attacked Melania, who was born in Slovenia and reportedly speaks six languages: Slovenian, English, Serbian, Italian, German, and French.

Midler was accused of racism and xenophobia:

  • “There is no one as racist and xenophobic as the tolerant left. To think that when I was growing up in Africa I fiercely admired you and many others who now are showing how low and hateful they can be. I’m ashamed for you,” one person said.
  • “As a Mexican immigrant I am very offended at your prejudice! My hard working parents with accents love and value this country! We put everything into what we do and do not expect to be treated unfairly because we may not sound like you ! Practice what you preach!” another person said.
  • “Oh hey look everyone… a washed up, dumpy old lady racist,” another person responded.

  • “Attacking an immigrant because of her accent. The loving and tolerant left,” another person responded.
  • “I’d rather listen to Melania speak than listen to you sing,” another person mocked.
  • “No, she’s just speaking with an accent. You, however, are a fool in any language,” Ben Shapiro said.

first lady Intelwars Melania Trump RNC speech

First lady Melania Trump offers sympathy and calls for unity in RNC speech: ‘I urge people to come together in a civil manner’

First lady Melania Trump delivered a speech to the Republican National Convention calling for all Americans to come together in addressing the issues faced by the nation, while making her case for reelecting her husband, President Donald Trump.

What are the details?

Following her introduction, Mrs. Trump began, “I want to acknowledge the fact that since March, our lives have changed drastically. The invisible enemy, COVID-19, swept across our beautiful country and impacted all of us. My deepest sympathy goes out to everyone that has lost a loved one, and my prayers are with those that are ill or suffering.

“I know many people are anxious and some feel helpless. I want you to know you’re not alone,” she continued. “My husband’s administration will not stop fighting until there is an effective treatment or vaccine available to everyone. Donald will not rest until he has done all he can to take care of everyone impacted by this terrible pandemic.”

The first lady delivered her speech in the recently renovated White House Rose Garden, in front of her husband, who sat in the front row. She recalled her own path as an immigrant in the U.S.:

I arrived in the United States when I was 26 years old. Living and working in the land of opportunity was a dream come true, but I wanted more. I wanted to be a citizen. After 10 years of paperwork and patience, I studied for the test in 2006 and became an American citizen. It is still one of the proudest moments in my life because with hard work and determination, I was able to achieve my own American dream.

As an immigrant and a very independent woman, I understand what a privilege it is to live here and to enjoy the freedoms and opportunities that we have. As first lady, I have been fortunate to see the American dream come true over and over again.

What about the protests?

In addressing the ongoing protests across the nation that have often descended into chaos, Mrs. Trump asked that citizens “take a moment, pause, and look at things from all perspectives.

“It is a harsh reality that we are not proud of parts of our history,” she said. “I encourage people to focus on our future while still learning from our past. We must remember that today we are all one community comprised of many races, religions, and ethnicities. Our diverse and storied history is what makes our country strong, and yet we still have so much to learn from one another.

“I urge people to come together in a civil manner,” she said. “Stop the violence and looting being done in the name of justice.”

Making the case for reelecting President Trump, Mrs. Trump said, “We all know Donald Trump makes no secrets about how he feels about thing. Whether you like it or not, you always know what he’s thinking, and that is because he is an authentic person who loves this country and its people.”

Intelwars liberals Melania Trump rose garden Twitter WHITE HOUSE

Liberals attack Melania Trump with hate over Rose Garden renovation: ‘The worst first lady in history’

Liberals attacked Melania Trump over the weekend after the first lady unveiled renovations to the Rose Garden at the White House.

What is the background?

According to CNN, the Rose Garden has been under construction since last month to undergo horticultural and technological updates.

From CNN:

The restoration resembles the original design and formation of the Rose Garden, established by President John F. Kennedy, and implemented in 1962 by horticulturist and philanthropist Rachel “Bunny” Mellon. The garden had not undergone a comprehensive refresh since then.

One of the first lady’s stated goals for the renovation was to “fulfill the dynamic needs of the modern presidency,” so part of the updated design includes modern features for audio and visual capabilities, as well as lighting and access for television cameras.

On Saturday, Melania unveiled the renovated garden.

What was the response?

Liberals who are not fond of President Donald Trump tore into Melania over the renovation.

“You destroyed our garden! How DARE you! Do you have no appreciation of history? Do you have no understanding of America, of what this gorgeous place MEANT?! Your tasteless, crass, white-power mindset is disgusting. Get out of OUR house! It’s not yours to destroy!” liberal writer Kurt Eichenwald said.

“The Rose Garden now looks like a cemetery, which perhaps is actually appropriate given what your husband has done to our country,” Eugene Gu responded.

Author Jennifer Wright called the renovation “entirely devoid of color or joy,” comparing the renovation to what the garden looked like during the Obama administration.

NBC political analyst Howard Fineman said the Trumps have turned the Rose Garden into a “neo-fascist parade ground.”

Author Don Winslow said, “Dear @FLOTUS You are the worst first lady in history. 80% of Americans just hate you. We will all remember that when you Trump did every evil thing he did you were standing right beside him cheering him on. You supported and enabled hate, torture, death, assault, & racism.”

Others commented:

  • “I’m an avid gardener and conservationist. But here’s some non-political feedback. And I’ve never tweeted to the WH, POTUS, or FLOTUS until right now. This is terrible. Removing pollinator trees and replacing with so much lawn is so bad ecologically. This makes me sad,” another person commented.
  • “This is the ‘Rose Garden: Pandemic Version!’ It is devoid of color & lifeless. It looks like a garden that one would see at a war memorial. What were they thinking?” another person said.
  • “Sad. It was lovely before. 30 million Americans dont have enough food. and you do this- at our expense,” another person said.
  • “Cool. You spent time and money changing something that didn’t need to be changed – as your citizens struggle to survive,” yet another person responded.

Despite what her detractors said, public funds did not finance the renovation. According to CNN, it was paid for through private donations.

Intelwars Kennedy Melania Trump rose garden WHITE HOUSE

First lady Melania Trump announces plans to revamp the White House Rose Garden

First lady Melania Trump announced Monday that the White House Rose Garden is getting a makeover, and the project is already underway thanks to funds from private donors.

What are the details?

The White House issued a news release from the office of the first lady, explaining that the Rose Garden would “return to its original ’62 footprint” as designed by philanthropist Rachel Lambert “Bunny” Mellon during the Kennedy administration. Updates will also be added to make the outdoor space more accommodating for people with disabilities and to provide modern infrastructure for audiovisual and broadcasting needs.

The memo noted that “the
project is supported by the National Park Service, who has cared for the White House and its grounds since 1933, and funded with private donations.” The Rose Garden area is 125-foot long, 60-foot wide, and sits outside the Oval Office on the West Wing.

Melania Trump tweeted, “Even in the most difficult times, the @WhiteHouse Rose Garden has stood as a symbol of strength & continuity. Today, it is my pleasure to announce our plans to renew & restore this iconic space so that we preserve its history & beauty for generations to come.”

When do the renovations begin?

A senior official from the Trump administration told the
Daily Mail that the Rose Garden renovations began Monday and are expected to take roughly three weeks to complete.

The outlet noted that the Rose Garden is used for news conferences, the annual Thanksgiving turkey pardons, and for hosting special events. The first lady announced her signature “Be Best” campaign from the Rose Garden in 2018, and she and President Donald Trump hosted a state dinner for Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison in the outdoor space last year.

According to the
Associated Press, “Mrs. Trump has overseen several renovation projects, including refurbishment of the Red Room wall coverings, Blue Room furniture and the White House bowling alley.” She is also currently overseeing the installation of a privately funded tennis pavilion on the White House grounds.

Baron trump Father's Day Food network host john henson Intelwars Melania Trump President Donald Trump

Melania Trump publicly scolds Food Network host for nasty Father’s Day message about son Barron’s paternity

First lady Melania Trump condemned recent remarks from Food Network host John Henson after he tweeted about her son, Barron Trump, on Father’s Day.

In a since-deleted Sunday tweet, Henson wrote, “I hope Barron gets to spend today with whoever his dad is.”

What are the details?

On Monday, Stephanie Grisham — the first lady’s spokesperson — scolded Henson’s remarks.

“Sadly we continue to see inappropriate and insensitive comments about the President’s son [Barron Trump],” Grisham said on behalf of Melania.

“As with every other Administration, a minor child should be off limits and allowed to grow up with no judgment or hate from strangers and the media,” she said.

Despite deleting the tweet, Henson later defended himself from critics, insisting that the joke was aimed at the president rather than Barron.

He wrote, “With respect, I think you dissecting it is the issue. The joke was aimed at Trump and the mere mention of Barron’s name doesn’t mean it’s at his expense. Although I respect your right to take issue with it.”

Anything else?

On Wednesday, New York Post columnist Miranda Devine echoed the first lady’s sentiments about leaving the couple’s minor son out of politics and unrelated agendas.

Devine, who appeared on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends,” said, “You may hate President Trump, but don’t attack his child, his teenage son.”

“It’s utterly despicable that a Food Network host would use Father’s Day to target a child, a 14-year-old boy who has done nothing wrong,” Devine added. “He has no choice about who his family is.”

Devine said that even though Henson clearly didn’t break the law by targeting Barron, it was wildly inappropriate to target the 14-year-old.

“He’s a Food Network host and no one is going to put him in jail for making a really nasty joke, but he should be ashamed of himself for targeting a child,” she insisted. (The discussion on Food Network host’s tweet starts at 2:10 mark.)

Coronavirus Intelwars Mask Melania Trump PSA

First Lady Melania Trump models face mask in coronavirus PSA

First Lady Melania Trump has been featured in a series of public service announcements for the American public as the U.S. fights the COVID-19 pandemic, and the latest ad showed the first lady wearing a cloth face mask to demonstrate the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s latest guidance on facial coverings.

What are the details?

The ad showing Mrs. Trump wearing a face mask was posted to the first lady’s Twitter account with the message, “As the CDC continues to study the spread of the COVID-19, they recommend that people wear cloth face coverings in public settings where social distancing measures can be difficult to maintain. Remember, this does not replace the importance of social distancing. It is recommended to keep us all safe.”

An accompanying video was also posted, wherein Mrs. Trump explained that examples of public places where facial coverings might be worn include grocery stores and pharmacies.

The first lady has urged the public to take the CDC’s guidance on wearing non-medical face masks seriously since the recommendation was issued on Apr.3.

President Donald Trump has stressed that the new recommendation for wearing facial coverings is voluntary, telling the press after the CDC’s announcement, “I don’t think I’m going to be doing it,” explaining, “Wearing a face mask as I greet presidents, prime ministers, dictators, kings, queens — I just don’t see it.”

However, the Washington Examiner noted, the president added that his wife would wear a face mask. President Trump told reporters, “She feels that way. I would wear one. Would you like me to wear one right now? That would be a little awkward, I guess, but again, I would wear one if I thought it was important. She likes the idea of wearing it, she does. A lot of people do. Again, it’s a recommendation, and I understand that recommendation and I’m OK with it.”

Barron Trump Coronavirus Donald Trump Donald Trump Jr. Eric Trump Hollywood Hollywood leftists Intelwars Invanka trump Melania Trump Michael rapaport watch

Trump-hating actor Michael Rapaport wants ‘little f***ing Barron’ — president’s teen son — exposed to coronavirus

Far-left actor Michael Rapaport — who earlier this week called first lady Melania Trump a “dumb animal” — dropped a payload of F-bombs against President Donald Trump and most of his offspring Wednesday, including his teen son Barron, and wanted to see them all exposed to the coronavirus.

What are the details?

Trump on Wednesday tweeted that the “LameStream Media is the dominant force in trying to get me to keep our country closed as long as possible in the hope that it will be detrimental to my election success. The real people want to get back to work ASAP. We will be stronger than ever before!”

Rapaport then posted a Twitter video of himself reacting to Trump’s statement.

How did Rapaport react?

Sporting his best tough-guy New York accent, Rapaport called Trump a “f***ing pig” and then went off.

“The real people want to get back to work ASAP? You never worked a f***ing day in your life,” he began. “You’re worried about the next four years? You need to be worried about the next four days, motherf***er. You need to be worried about the next four weeks, the next four months, you motherf***er. You are the worst possible motherf***er we could have in power making decisions right now.”

Rapaport then targeted Trump’s kids, including 14-year-old Barron, saying they all should go out in public and be exposed to the coronavirus.

“Why don’t you send your f***ing son, d**k stain Donald Trump Jr., big-toothed f***ing Eric Trump, little f***ing Barron, f***ing Ivanka, junkyard Jared —let them go out there and test the f***ing waters,” he added. “Let them see if s**t is sweet. Let them take the cars, the trains, the buses, the Amtrak, let them play in the park. And if everything’s good after five days of them playing out there in the streets, we’ll all go back [to work].”

Here’s the clip. (Content warning: Strong language):

How did observers react?

A good number of Twitter users backed Rapaport’s rant, including fellow actor Treat Williams who commented, “I’m so proud to have done a movie with you.”

Others? Not so much:

  • “Why do Democrats think that being a huge d**k is something that looks impressive?”
  • “We don’t care what you say our president is working hard every day, and he does it for free. He will fix all the damage that the last 4 presidents and all the Democrats did, and we will survive your little tiny tantrum.”
  • “Who even are you anyway?”
  • “This nitwit has the audacity to try to allocate shame to others while recording himself swearing & spewing out hateful bile. Here is an example of the true Hollywood elitist. Nice isn’t it? Now who should really be ashamed?”
  • “Hey Michael, give it a rest. You’re making such a fool of yourself, but then again, you are a Lib so there’s that.”
  • “You’re pure evil.”

Bipartisanship CNN COVID-19 Intelwars Melania Trump Rick wilson Social Media Twitter

Social media piles on former GOP strategist Rick Wilson after he mocks Melania Trump’s ‘Be Best’ with ‘Be Infected’

Frequent CNN guest and former GOP strategist Rick Wilson took heavy fire on social media after mocking first lady Melania Trump’s “Be Best” anti-bullying initiative by saying “#BeInfected” in response to an announcement about ads the first lady was going to record.

At the time of this writing, there are at least 9,415 cases of the coronavirus in the United States, with at least 150 deaths.

What are the details?

On Wednesday, the White House announced that Melania would be featured in public service announcements concerning the spread of COVID-19.

The PSAs, according to CNN, will address the “important ways Americans can protect themselves and those most at risk” from contracting and spreading the deadly disease. The outlet also reported that the PSAs will also feature Surgeon General Jerome Adams, Dr. Anthony Fauci, Dr. Deborah Birx, and other Trump administration officials.

In response, Wilson — an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump — tweeted, “#BeInfected,” a clear jab at the first lady’s #BeBest campaign.

Following massive backlash, Wilson said that he was clearly not being serious.

“ANYONE who thought I was wishing COVID on Melania is a f***wit,” he wrote. “You know full well it was a riff on ‘BeBest’ and it’s [sic] utter failure in the face of her husband’s continued role as Global Troll in Chief and National Bully.”

“That said,” he continued, “fap to your fake-ass outrage all you like. None of your fake outrage will matter in a day or two. None.”

Wilson recently made headlines after an inflammatory segment with CNN’s Don Lemon in which he, the news host, and New York Times op-ed writer Wajahat Ali mocked Trump supporters as unintelligent and illiterate.

By early Thursday morning, Wilson was still trying to stem the tide of outrage being directed at him over the highly unnecessary tweet.

“As noted several times, it was a play off her failed #BeBest campaign, but the Trump outrage machine needs feeding,” he insisted.
