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:

New York firefighter gets emotional talking about EMTs who feel guilty they’re too sick to work

Published

on

The New York Fire Department is struggling to make its way through the coronavirus crisis. Currently, 493 members of the NYFD have tested positive for COVID-19 and more than 3,000 are out sick.

Anthony Almojera, an EMS Lieutenant-paramedic for the FDNY told CNN Tuesday that he doesn't know how they're managing the constant influx of calls for help from New Yorkers.

"It's truly a testament to the EMS workers that we have here, the EMTs and medics," he told host Jim Sciutto. "It's pretty amazing to see how they're going out in spite of seeing all their co-workers get sick. It's frightening for a lot of us. We don't want to bring it home. We don't want to get sick with it but, you know, this is our job, we treat the sick and injured. We still have all of our regular 9-1-1 calls. It's truly a testament to the EMTs."

‘Can we get a refund?’ Trump flack Stephanie Grisham faces a landslide of mockery after her abrupt dismissal

Published

on

White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham is reportedly being relieved of her duties after having gone a full ten months on the job without holding a single press briefing.

Given that Grisham hauled in a salary of $183,000 despite never actually appearing before reporters to answer questions, some Americans are asking if we can get a "refund" for her purported services.

Others, meanwhile, are simply happy to see her leave despite having rarely, if ever, seen her talk in public.

Published

on

Writing for the conservative Bulwark, Tim Miller posed the question: "Why is Trump obsessed with hydroxychloroquine?' by noting the president has become one of, if not its biggest, proponents.
