As most media outlets focus on illegal immigrants, refugees and protesters calling for open borders, one person in the White House is wondering why no one is bringing up First Lady Melania Trump. Mrs. Trump, a legal immigrant from Slovenia.
Kellyanne Conway, President Trump's former campaign manager and White House adviser, appeared on a Fox News show Sunday to talk about the immigrant coverage going on in the mainstream media. Conway claims Mrs. Trump is left out of the newsfeed because she doesn't align herself with 'privileged white' protesters.
“It’s so gratifying to me to see that in 2017, frankly, an immigrant first lady,” Conway said in an appearance on 'Media Buzz.’ “Who is covering that story? Why isn’t she out there?”
Conway then answered her own question, “Because she’s not singing kumbaya with the protesters and their signs with privileged white kids coming out the ivory tower saying, ‘Look at my sign.’ They have no idea what they are protesting. They are in this culture of sameness.”
Mrs. Trump is not the first FLOTUS who is an immigrant; like the former model, Louisa Adams, wife of John Quincy Adams, was an immigrant. She was born in London.
Conway couldn't sing Mrs. Trump's praises enough. “The woman is beautiful inside and out. She’s brilliant. She speaks five languages, I speak one because I’m American,” Conway said, adding that it is notable legal immigrant in the White House. “Somebody who waited and went through the proper channels and waited, I’m told, up to 10 years to... get everything approved,” she concluded.
In a day and age where protests have replaced raves as a social activity, Conway slammed demonstrators for picking and choosing the story they prefer to tell rather than sticking to the facts.
Conway herself got a few slams over facts this week when she mentioned the 'Bowling Green Massacre,' an event that never even happened. She was referring to two terrorists being tracked by intelligence agents during the Obama administration who were traced to Bowling Green, Kentucky. No massacre had ever taken place.
