Melania Trump: 'No reason for violence' in George Floyd protests

Source: The Hill

First lady Melania Trump on Friday weighed in on the George Floyd protests in Minneapolis by saying "there is no reason for violence."

The remarks were Trump's first public comments on the violent demonstrations surrounding the death of Floyd, an unarmed African American man who died this week while in policy custody.

"Our country allows for peaceful protests, but there is no reason for violence. I've seen our citizens unify & take care of one another through COVID19 & we can't stop now," she tweeted. "My deepest condolences to the family of George Floyd. As a nation, let's focus on peace, prayers & healing."

The first lady's tweet followed one from President Trump earlier on Friday that was flagged by Twitter for being a "glorification of violence."

On black people murdered by police, she's also been silent. On peaceful protests, she's shown zero support up to this point.

Now she seems to be saying "please, protest quietly so I can get back to designing my tennis pavilion".

The only way she sticks around is an allowance. I'm betting she has no money of her own, or not enough. She gets paid to hold his hand in public, gets paid to smile once in a while, etc. It's like a dog treat. Do something good and I'll write you a check.

This is evidence that America...and possibly the entire fucking world has not only crashed through the Looking Glass, but we are now using the broken shards to slit our fucking wrists.

Every fiber of my being, from the deepest depths of my soul, to the tips of my male nipples in the frozen-food section at Harris Teeter, knows with a crystalline, pure spar certainty, that I should NOT BE REQUIRED to give ONE-FUCK what this soulless, hell spawn "Netherworld Barbie" has to say about fucking anything

My intellect, my psyche, my conscience, my decency and grace...all tell me that I shouldn't even be required to know who in the fuck these people are.

I know that these lifeless, grifting, vapid, empty vessels deserve NOT ONE NANO-SECOND of my serious thoughts.

These spray-on-tan, Loreal of Bakersfield, plastic, Axe-Body Spray wearing morons SHOULD BE THE MOST FUCKING INSIGNIFICANT PEOPLE WE EVER ENCOUNTER

Their impact on our lives should have the same effect of a fucking gnat blocking the path of a charging rhino.

I will NEVER forgive fucking Donnie Shit for Brains voting morons for requiring me to take seriously, A FUCKING BUNCH OF IGNORANT FUCKSTICKS that should NEVER be taken seriously

This fucking family and their supporters, are like dog-shit stuck in the grooves of your tennis shoes.

Maleria should thank her lucky stars that she is not reduced to selling her wares on a street corner, once she aged out of the escort business. She managed to "catch" a low life, pretend millionaire, and has lived "happily ever after" Yeah, right. Maleria, go get more cosmetic surgery, your eyes are looking like slits.
