Melania Trump released from hospital – but ‘questions remain’ after NY Times report

Published

on

Melania Trump late Saturday morning returned from Walter Reed Hospital after spending five days recovering from a standard procedure that “typically has a one-day recuperation period,” according to an extensive New York Times report released Friday.

“Mrs. Trump’s recovery has been shrouded in secrecy by protective aides, citing patient privacy laws. But the silence comes amid an unusually long recovery period for a successful procedure that experts say is typically performed on a conscious patient and takes 45 to 90 minutes,” the Times noted.

 The paper of record went so far as to suggest that perhaps the First Lady was no longer at Walter Reed.

“The West Wing would not say whether she remained at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center outside Washington. Neither would the East Wing,” the Times reported, referring to the First Lady’s communications staff. “A spokesman with the Secret Service declined to confirm the first lady’s whereabouts. And the public affairs office at Walter Reed did not respond to a request for comment.”

Just before 10:30 AM Saturday morning the First Lady’s Communications Director, Stephanie Grisham, released a terse, 45-word statement.

 “The First Lady returned home to the White House this morning.  She is resting comfortably and remains in high spirits.  Our office has received thousands of calls and emails wishing Mrs. Trump well, and we thank everyone who has taken the time to reach out.”

Ordinarily, when a member of the First Family undergoes any type of surgery or medical treatment physicians hold daily press conferences to update Americans on the patient’s status, and to help educate Americans on the treatment.

 But once again this First Family has refused to do so. Americans are still stinging from being lied to about President Trump’s health, first from his personal physician before the election, then after, by the White House Physician to the President.

Many on social media are not satisfied:

Trump White House shamelessly uses Fiona Hill’s testimony to paint Democrats as Russian puppets

Published

on

Even though former Trump National Security Council official Fiona Hill angrily denounced President Donald Trump and his allies for spreading Russian conspiracy theories during her impeachment inquiry testimony, the Trump White House is trying to turn her statements against House Democrats.

During her testimony, Hill said that Russia's actions during the 2016 presidential election are still being felt to this day, and they've all been negative for the United States.

"Our nation is being torn apart," she said. "Truth is questioned. Our highly professional and expert career foreign service is being undermined... The Russian government's goal is to weaken our country -- to diminish America's global role and to neutralize a perceived U.S. threat to Russian interests."

GOP ignoring Sondland because they already know Trump is guilty and ‘just don’t care’: conservative columnist

Published

on

In a column for the Bulwark, the founder and editor of the conservative website took at hard slap at both Donald Trump's most avid defenders in Congress and their fellow Republicans who have remained silent after E.U. Ambassador Gordon Sondland testified in no uncertain terms that the president was engaged in bribery in his dealings with Ukraine's government.

According to Charlie Sykes, "Yes, there was a quid pro quo. The president demanded it. Everybody knew about it. There was no secret. But we knew all that didn’t we?"

Ex-Fox News executive caught running a disinformation and fake news farm — using writers from Macedonia

Published

on

A New York Times expose revealed that Fox News paid writers in Macedonia to create click-bait that prompt Americans to fight more about issues.

According to the piece, both the left and right websites created by an international content farm to inflame people enough to click and share content. Conservative Edition News and Liberal Edition News intentionally writes stories with the purpose to infuriate each side for the purpose of generating hate-clicks, response articles and more. Headlines like "Austin sex-ed curriculum teaches kids how to obtain an abortion" and "HuffPost writer considers Christianity 'dangerous'" give right-wing audiences fodder for anger to lash out at their counterparts.
