Melania is Undertaking a New White House Project and the Left is Having a Meltdown

Melania has thrown the left into yet another tizzy

OPINION: If there’s one thing that can trigger the left into a complete meltdown frenzy, it’s anything involving First Lady Melania Trump.

Mrs. Trump has just announced that she’s undertaking a massive new White House project and the left has lost their damn marbles. Our amazing and beautiful FLOTUS will be revamping the historic Rose Garden!

Of course, the New York Times turned the announcement into a hit-piece on Trump. Honestly, we have the most insufferable and dishonest media in the world. But, never fear, I found the only part of the article about the “Rose Garden” that was not “nasty and mean.”

Melania Trump, the first lady, announced on Monday a plan renovate the White House Rose Garden, a signature showcase of power used by presidents for decades, as her husband enters a crucial stretch of his re-election effort.

The project, which includes electrical upgrades for television appearances, a new walkway and new flowers and shrubs, is meant to be an “act of expressing hope and optimism for the future,” according to remarks Mrs. Trump delivered to the Committee for the Preservation of the White House on Monday morning. “Our country has seen difficult times before, but the White House and the Rose Garden have always stood as a symbol of our strength, resilience and continuity.”

The left is acting as if Melania is “Marie Antoinette” by announcing a White House renovation during a “dark and horrific pandemic.”

Here are some of their unhinged comments:

“Why is Melania Trump announcing a Rose Garden renovation in the middle of a national crisis? 149,000 Americans have died in a window of a few short months.”

“To go along with her new tennis court, Melania is re-doing the Rose Garden. Very Versailles!”

“If you are panicked because you don’t have rent, medicine, PPE, or a job worth a living wage. The White House is taking your money to renovate the Rose Garden to maintain its

“Later today, The First Female is expected to announce a major renovation of the Rose Garden. With her usual myopia, Melania believes that Americans who are facing eviction & horrifying death will be pleased and comforted by her landscaping efforts.”


I disliked Michelle Obama, but I never behaved like this.  The left has a seething hatred, boiling under the surface, that drives them to twist every story to fit their anti-Trump narrative.

For me, I personally can’t wait to see the Rose Garden, with Melania’s great taste, I am sure it will look stunning.
