Amid the controversy of his separating more than 2300 children from their asylum seeking parents at the U.S.-Mexican border, Trump was confronted by a protester at a rally in Duluth, Minnesota with a photo of convicted child molester Jeffrey Epstein and Trump taken at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Florida during the 1990s.
Without shouting or otherwise making a scene, the male protester drew Trump’s ire merelyby holding up the photo, which Trump spotted during his screed against immigrants. Trump interrupted his speech by telling his supporters to “get him outta here,” pointing out the protester with the photo. The photo contained a caption that read: “Who’s Jeffrey Epstein?”
Trump then said, “go home to your mom, darling . . . go home.” Trump then ruminated on whether the protester, who had a short pony tail, was a man or a woman, adding that he needed a haircut. Trump, however, was then briefly silent after contemplating the fact that the photo was of him and Epstein.
The incident in Duluth came as questions are being asked about the welfare of immigrant children now detained in internment centers run by the Departments of Homeland Security and Health and Human Services, as well as private social services and foster care centers, around the country. The Department of Defense has been ordered to prepare to house some 20,000 children at U.S. military bases around the country. There are reports that at one federally-contracted facility in Virginia, teen detainees have been subjected to sexual and other physical abuse. Virginia’s Democratic Governor Ralph Northam has ordered Virginia law enforcement to investigate the Shenandoah Valley Juvenile Center in Staunton, Virginia. Similar reports of abuse have been reported at the federally-contracted Yolo County Juvenile Detention Facility in California.
The serial sexual abuse of children by Trump and Epstein has been highlighted by the establishment by Trump of Nazi-like child detention centers and tent camps, including “tender age” facilities to house infant and elementary school-age children torn away from their parents.
Trump sent First Lady Melania Trump to Texas to meet with staff of a center housing unaccompanied children detained at the border. Mrs. Trump boarded her flight at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland sporting a Zara green jacket with the phrase, “I Really Don’t Care Do U?” Soon, a voting public incensed at the Trumps’ callous attitude toward the protection of children, will let them know they really do care as Republicans across the country are systematically voted out of office.
Mr. Trump tweeted the following about the jacket after Mrs. Trump arrived back at Andrews, again wearing the jacket. Mr. Trump wrote: “‘I REALLY DON’T CARE, DO U?’ written on the back of Melania’s jacket, refers to the Fake News Media. Melania has learned how dishonest they are, and she truly no longer cares!”
To the protester in Duluth who rattled Trump’s cage: job well done, sir.
