Media Pushes Melania Conspiracies

The people who insisted there was no reason at all to worry about Hillary’s health now invent Melania conspiracies.

The same media that condemns “conspiracy theories”—usually any question you ask that doesn’t come from their narrative—doesn’t hesitate to promote Melania conspiracies.

A lot of these are just stupid or silly. But Melania conspiracies swerve into malevolence when people manufacture baseless speculations that Melania is the victim of spouse abuse.

Trending: Haters Gonna Hate (While Calling Us Hateful)!

Breitbart report, “First Lady Honors Military Families, Media Freaks Out…Again.

First lady Melania Trump was in the front row on Monday night as President Donald Trump honored the Gold Star families whose loved ones have paid the ultimate price to preserve Americans’ freedom.

But the left-wing media is still promoting conspiracy theories about why the first lady hasn’t made a “public appearance” since she underwent surgery and has been recovering at the White House.

Those theories have been reported on a daily basis since the first lady was with the president as they welcomed home three Americans who were released from prison in North Korea on May 10, thanks to the Trump administration’s negotiations with the communist regime.

The media has pushed a number of theories over the weeks, ranging from the first lady moving back to New York, to her suffering abuse at the hands of her husband.

The media reports have continued in spite of the fact that the first lady’s press secretary told outlets exactly what Trump has been doing since she left the hospital, and the first lady herself has tweeted numerous times, including responding to the fake news.

Breitbart News reported Stephanie Grisham’s response to media inquiries about the first lady: ”Sadly, we deal with conspiracy theories all the time, so this is nothing new, just more silly nonsense,” Grisham said. “She is doing great.”

The Breitbart story documents a lot more in the media. It’s funny that the media would be so unrelentingly hostile to Donald Trump to the point of using his wife. You would think they would realize that this further undercuts their pretense of reporting news and makes them look like hateful bigots against the Trump clan.
