Even though the mainstream media is dead set on attacking her for President Donald Trump’s alleged affair with the porn star Stormy Daniels over a decade ago, our First Lady Melania Trump always seems to be able to show up to the party with grace and class. Yesterday was no exception.
Yesterday the first lady made a surprise visit to the Palm Beach Children’s Hospital in Florida. She was wearing a very elegant and striped dress for the occasion which screamed springtime is here while she greeted the patients and their families as she wished them a happy Easter weekend and handed out gifts to the sick children. Without of course forgetting to talk to the hospital staff as she worked herself around the facility.

But perhaps the best part of the event was that no reporters were on hand to ruin the visit for her or the patients since the visit was kept off the official First Lady schedule. Which was a welcomed fact since the media on both sides of the political aisle are hell-bent on gauging her reaction to the alleged affair the president had 12 years ago.
“The first lady’s spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham issued a statement on Twitter: “While I know the media is enjoying speculation & salacious gossip, I’d like to remind people there’s a minor child whose name should be kept out of news stories when at all possible.”
Cupp: Melania should do for this generation of girls what Hillary did not do for mine: leave her jerk of a husband. https://t.co/lzR41deJIt

Even the former Conservative Libertarian Fox News and The Blaze contributor turned “moderate” after leaving the Glenn Beck network for a cushy job at CNN had disturbing words for the first lady.
“Cupp said, “I’ve heard the stories swirling around, the president described in a number of ways, scandalous, tabloid trash. But the word that comes to my mind is humiliating. The president of the United States is being sued by a porn star over an alleged affair they had years ago. It is humiliating for the country certainly that the figurehead of the Republican party—not too long ago the party of family values—is alleged to have had another affair with a Playmate just after his son was born is humiliating for the GOP, or it should be anyway. But worst of all, that Donald Trump has very likely cheated on his wife multiple times. And that this is all playing out very publicly is particularly humiliating for Melania Trump. While it’s hard to imagine she didn’t know who she married, she’s also just a woman, a wife, and a mother, like the rest of us. There’s a real person in there, and she must be reeling.”
She continued, “What she does next is no small thing. It might just be tabloid fodder to gossip rags or political chum for Hill watchers, but for a generation of young girls, Melania’s next move could be formative. It was to me. I was just 13 when word of Bill Clinton’s affairs hit the campaign trail and imperiled his 1992 presidential run. I had just voted for Clinton in my school’s mock primary. I was paying close attention. Burned in my mind is the image of Hillary sitting next to Bill in a “60 Minutes” interview trying to put a fresh veneer on her embattled candidate husband.”
She added “It was, of course, just the first of many times she would endure the particular humiliation Bill would inflict, stories of affairs, inappropriate behavior, a graphic White House tryst with an intern, even a rape allegation, and put on a strong united front. Over those years, Hillary became for me what she became for many women, the literal definition of stand by your man.”
Cupp concluded, “Now Melania may not have a political career to consider, but as the First Lady, she is an inherently important figure in American politics, and women are watching. Particularly young women. Melania should do for this generation of girls what Hillary Clinton did not do for mine, and leave her jerk of a husband.”
WTH happened to you? Does CNN have a room where they lock up new recruits and they starve you until you turn stupid?

What S.E. Cupp and most of her other pundit friends on the left seem to forget is there is a 12-year-old boy in the mix here. And Cupp, as a mother and wife should know better than to pose questions of this nature to people in the limelight. How would her child feel if he turned on the TV one day and heard a third-rate pundit who changes political views depending who’s writing the check calling for his mother to leave his father over an affair which allegedly took place over 12 years ago?
Mrs. Cupp, I used to be a huge fan of yours before you decided to join the “Fake News” empire of CNN, but isn’t it time we all started choosing our words more carefully and taking into consideration that just like in the 90’s, some things are just none of our damn business?
