Comedian Kathy Griffin destroys “complicit” Melania Trump after she issued a statement saying she “hates to see” families separated on the US-Mexico border: “F*ck you.”
Griffin tweeted: “F*ck you, Melanie [sic]. You know damn well your husband can end this immediately…you feckless complicit piece of shit.”

Mrs. Trump, who I’m pretty sure didn’t write the statement, seems to disapprove of her husband’s zero-tolerance policy to separate families seeking asylum in the U.S. as a deterrent. The policy has but it has backfired and he’s now trying to blame Democrats for a policy he and Attorney General Jeff Sessions implemented in April. The Department of Homeland Security said that nearly 2,000 children have been separated from their families. Some are being held in a tent city in the sweltering heat in Texas.
I am not convinced she’s throwing her husband under a bus. He could be using her as some kind of shield, but her own immigration status could come back to haunt her. How did she obtain an Einstein visa that’s meant for extraordinarily qualified people like Olympic medal winning athletes, scientists, academicians, award winning actors/actresses, and so on? She is clearly none of the above.
Reaction on Twitter to Melania Trump’s statement (most people aren’t buying it):
Once again, @FLOTUS opens mouth, inserts foot. She violated immigration visas & her parents are in Trump’s words:chain migrants

Dear Media: Do not tell us any longer that Melania Trump is very private and thus hands off from your coverage.
She just weighed in with a bogus “both sides” statement on separating children from parents at the border.
This is a political issue, & she is now deep in politics.

BREAKING: Straight from @FLOTUS @MELANIATRUMP's spokesperson @StephGrisham45 — Melania Trump supports her husband's policy of taking of children from their parents, and is not calling for him to reverse it.
Melania Trump is as soulless and heartless as Donald.

Melania didn’t write that statement. I doubt she approved it. It was intended to bolster Trump. Stop it. Access journalism isn’t worth selling your soul https://t.co/OhyYHjALNd

BREAKING: Melania Trump “hates to see children separated” from their parents and put into Trump’s Concentration Camps.
She added, the US should “govern with heart.”
This statement will be just as effective as her anti-cyberbullying campaign!

In 2016, you and your husband promised America you would give a full accounting of your immigration to the United States so we could know if your entry and continued residency was lawful. We are still waiting. @MSNBC @maddow @lawrence @amjoyshow @cnn
