I don't get the "whose business is it" comment.   It's public information.  It's nothing to be ashamed of.   The nude photographs, on the other hand....


How is being an immigrant supposed to make one empathetic towards other immigrants?  Especially those who were attempting to take shortcuts rather than the one followed legally.

 

Should a person who has worked hard to have a comfortable life be emphathetic towards someone who cheated to achieve the goal?

 

There has been many women who have posed nude and became successful as actresses, models, etc.  Your post sounds more like there is some jealously with the First Lady.

Having a family with immigrants is supposed make one empathic?  How so?  

 

Isn't his concern the people of the United States first?  And whose business except his if his wives were foreign born?

Oh  dear, I guess that I am mistaken, I thought you have said before that she comes from a very high family in Viet Nam. I guess I have misunderstood that she is not Asian. I am glad to see that she is more interested in the actual things that happen in this country , that just in her flowers as you have told me.


Did I say any different?  Haven't you also said that your family was also of a higher class?  And something about having to leave when Castro overthrew Batista?  Yes, she is Asian, and of the upper class.  Wouldn't you figure that since she speaks multiple languages and her being an attorney in her native country?  If not for that, I'd never have met her.  Would you like to buy a copy of my autobiography?

It sounds as you are slyly saying that those of us that are oldler is slightly senile?  I've been hearing that from the many young kids that I had to babysit back when I was not in my 30s yet.  I could say that based on the many confusing posts that you might be talking about yourself.

My wife is an immigrant, and you should hear her views.  She can give them in six languages.  And she is very vocal about those who enter illegally.  As far as having foreign blood most all of us in this country does.  My ancestors came here from Europe, but there is also a good amount of documented Native American.

 

 

It's not about immigrants, we have friends from many countries.  But the idea is they came here legally (in spite of the adverse comments about Melania) instead of slipping across the border.

Wow Donald, your German and Scottish and 2 of 3 wives are foreign, it makes you wonder what your problem really is about any foreign person. 


The REAL problem is all the spin, innuendo, half-truths and lies used by liberals.  Kinda like the above.  As far as I can tell, Trump's only problem with foreigners is he believes they should abide by the laws of this country.  Funny, my parents came here from Mexico and they felt exactly the same way.  And they especially disliked people who broke the law to come here illegally because it hurt the people who were waiting to come here legally and it gave the legal immigrants that were here a bad name.  And if they were alive today there is no doubt in my mind they would tell you that liberals are just scum for making immigration as a partisan issue.
