Once again, Democrats are showing their sore loser color. By any standard, it’s a despicable move to bully a political opponent’s family members.
Failing to stop President Trump’s immigration executive orders, despicable Democrats are reportedly targeting First Lady Melania Trump for political revenge.
According to Politico:
State Sen. Nancy Skinner of Berkeley, standing alongside Senate Pro Tem Kevin de Leon and Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon in the state Capitol last week, made the call as part of a protest against Trump’s executive order calling for limiting funds to “sanctuary cities.”
An AP investigation last November found Melania Trump lacked proper work visas when she was employed as a model after arriving in the U.S. from her native Slovenia more than two decades ago.
Skinner noted that Trump promised last August that his wife would hold a press conference on the matter before the election, but that never occurred. Skinner called the president’s response “not adequate,’’ particularly in light of policies advocated by Trump that could put hundreds of thousands of undocumented people in California under the threat of deportation.
San Francisco attorney Harmeet Dhillon, a member of the Republican National Committee, called the effort “below the belt” and “a cheap trolling tactic” that is “really beneath the dignity of these California legislators.”
Dhillon called the effort “sexist and harassing,” saying, “I don’t think that the president’s policy positions make his wife fair game for anything.”
Sue Caro, the Alameda County GOP chair, was outraged by Skinner’s demands. “This is a crap grandstanding posture,” she tweeted.
The request came a few days before Trump issued an executive order barring refugees and some legal immigrants from entering the United States, disrupting travel around the world and leading to large-scale protests around the nation.
