Melania Trump’s parents become citizens through ‘chain migration’ | US news | The Guardian


Melania Trump’s parents were sworn in as US citizens on Thursday, completing a legal path to citizenship that their son-in-law has suggested eliminating.

Viktor and Amalija Knavs, both in their 70s, took the citizenship oath at a private ceremony in New York City. The Slovenian immigrants, a former car dealer and textile factory worker, had been living in the US as permanent residents.

The Knavses slipped in and out of a side entrance at a Manhattan federal building flanked by Department of Homeland Security police. Some workers inside didn’t know what was going on. The couple said little, other than Viktor telling a reporter “thank you” when asked how they felt about becoming Americans.

The Knavses’ lawyer said they had “travailed a wonderful journey”.

Another awkward handshake: Trump ‘snubbed’ by Poland’s first lady | Euronews


Donald Trump has suffered another embarrassing handshake moment after being ‘snubbed’ by the wife of Poland’s president.

The US president, who was in Warsaw with first lady Melania, was attending a ceremony with Andrzej Duda and his wife, Agata Kornhauser-Duda. As the group were preparing to leave the stage, Trump shared a handshake with Poland’s president before extending a hand to Kornhauser-Duda. She appears to ignore the gesture, moving instead to embrace Melania and only after turning to shake Trump’s hand.

Ivanka Trump as First Lady-Daughter kills all hope for a Melania-run East Wing – Salon.com


There are many legitimate deaths to mourn here in the twilight of 2016 — reason, civility, the future of the Republic — but I felt none so sharply this week as the snuffing of my last hope for delight in the White House over the next four years. After everything women and those without a Pepe-infused sense of humor have lost, now we won’t even get the glorious spectacle of a full-time FLOTUS with the Mostess ruling the East Wing with a pavé crystal fist.

Barack Obama’s administration was a cultural two-fer: Along with a cool president, we got a funny, gracious, intelligent, down-to-earth, accomplished executive for a first lady. Michelle Obama is the kind of woman who’ll karaoke with you on your birthday and hand-pick a good novel for your present, give you grad school application tips in one breath and the name of a resilient heirloom tomato in the next. We didn’t deserve her, and she will be missed.

America is ready for a change, we have been told, and so we are installing a spiritually bankrupt reality TV producer in the Oval Office, along with his Cabinet of Horrors. A Donald Trump presidency does not promise much on the shits-and-giggles front, but the infinite comedic possibilities of Melania Trump in official first lady duties? That has kept me going since November 9.

But hold off on that bulk order of “obligatory bootie scrubs,” because it looks very likely that Ivanka is installing herself as First Lady-Daughter instead.

First we heard that Melania and young master Barron would return to the gilded tower after the inauguration. Still, it’s a reasonable commute. But this week we learned Donald’s eldest daughter Ivanka would be taking a leave of absence from the Trump Organization — leaving the other two McPoyles in charge of the family coffers — in what the New York Times calls “the surest sign” that Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner are going to move to D.C. and become the bland ceremonial faces of the Trump administration.

Report: Melania Trump worked in U.S. without proper permit – The Washington Post


 

Should this be true should Melania Trump be deported, for Trump as stated this should be so for anyone you works in the US before being granted a work permit. Where are Trumps comments on this or will he state he never stated this, if so more lies from Trump.

Melania Trump’s cultural criticism overlooks her husband’s record | MSNBC


Donald Trump’s wife is concerned about cyber-bullying, and those who attack others’ “looks and intelligence.” It sounded like veiled criticism of her husband.

Trump’s wife struggles to defend the indefensible | MSNBC


In recent campaign history, certain myths have taken hold in ways that obscure what actually happened. Howard Dean’s 2004 campaign, for example, was already collapsing at the time of his “scream” in Iowa. Mitt Romney’s support was already falling in 2012 when the “47 percent” video reached the public.

And Donald Trump’s support was already fading when Americans heard his 2005 boasts about sexual assault, so his candidacy’s current difficulties cannot solely be blamed on the “grab them by the p***y” audio.

That said, it certainly didn’t help. Complicating matters, Trump and his allies still haven’t thought of a credible way to explain the recording, though the candidate’s wife did her best during a CNN interview yesterday.

Melania Trump defended Donald Trump against allegations that he sexually assaulted women, saying in a rare interview Monday night that her husband was “egged on” to make lewd comments about women that were caught on tape in 2005. […]

[She dismissed the conversation between Trump and Billy Bush] as “boy talk” and speculated that her husband “was led on – like, egged on – from the host to say dirty and bad stuff.”

That’s not much of a defense. Donald Trump didn’t want to brag about sexual misconduct, but he fell sway to the persuasive powers of the host of an entertainment-news show? For all the talk about Trump’s persona as a tough guy, he succumbed to pressure from Billy Bush?

Not only is this unpersuasive, it’s not even true – there’s nothing on the recording to suggest Trump was reluctant to boast about his exploits.

As for the “boy talk,” let’s not forget that Trump was 59 at the time of the interview.

The complicated immigration history of Melania Trump: Tourist visas, then work visas – LA Times


While an aspiring model from Slovenia, the future wife of Donald Trump  came to the United States on a tourist visa, but never worked illegally, according to a lawyer hired to review her immigration records. But Melania Trump has declined to release those records, and the account still leaves some open questions about her immigration history.
