An Immigrant Doing a Job that Americans Just Won’t Do

just remembered copy

A good friend who lives in the heartland—but is apparently fond of the English tabloid press—has taken me to task for ignoring this vital story:


Melania Trump ‘spending time away from Donald at posh hotel’ after allegations of his affair with porn star Stormy Daniels

The First Lady, 47, has been left ‘humiliated’ and spends ‘three to four days a week away from the White House’ before flying to West Palm Beach, Florida, yesterday

Actually, I am coming to see the decency and good sense in Melania. Yes, she is a Woman with a Past. Yes, she made a really rotten Faustian bargain. But, at least, she appears to have the good sense to realize the mistake she made.

Melania, it appears, has understood what a goodly portion of the Republican establishment will not admit: the problem with Useful Idiots is that their idiocy tends to detract from their utility.
