The short cryptic email directed to President Trump by leftist Alyssa Milano, had all the earmarks of another Stormy Daniels replay. However, upon closer observation, Milano was simply following the script of a misinformed celebrity engaging once again in selective outrage.
“There’s nothing this man isn’t trying to fuck up. Leave my boobs alone.” Milano was apparently accusing the president of opposing a breast-feeding resolution by the UN.
The “quick-to-judge” actress once again took to social media without doing any fact checking or due diligence regarding the President’s stand on a woman’s right to breast-feed.
Which once again demonstrates just how deranged the left has become regarding President Trump and how committed the media is in derailing this president with fake news reports.
According to the New York Times, U.S. officials sought to remove language that urged governments to “protect, promote and support breast-feeding”, along with language calling on policy-makers to limit the promotion of food products such as infant formula (which can be harmful to young children).
The paper also claimed the Trump Administration had threatened Ecuador with trade restrictions and the loss of military aid if it didn’t withdraw the resolution they originally introduced.
Once the president was aware of the bogus article, he took to social media to set the record straight.
“The failing NY Times Fake News story today about breast-feeding must be called out. The U.S. strongly supports breast-feeding but we don’t believe women should be denied access to formula. Many women need this option because of malnutrition and poverty.”
Moreover, the United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) went on the record informing the Associated Press that there is no opposition to breastfeeding in the administration’s criticism of the UN resolution.
“The U.S. opposed a World Health Assembly resolution to encourage breastfeeding because it called for limits on the promotion of infant formula, not because of objections to breast-feeding”, President Donald Trump tweeted Monday.
Breitbart News also reported on the controversy citing: “Caitlin Oakley, a spokeswoman for the Department of Health and Human Services, said it’s ‘patently false’ to portray the U.S. position as “anti-breast-feeding.”
However that didn’t stop Rep. Carolyn Maloney from holding a press conference outside City Hall in New York City alongside a breast-feeding mother and City Councilman Robert Cornegy. Maloney started by stating she was “absolutely shocked” by the U.S. position at the World Health Assembly.
The drama continued along with the selective outrage as Maloney continued her monologue, “This is unconscionable. I am calling for hearings, we used to be the beacon of light and hope for the world.”
Adding, “When we spoke, people listened because we were talking about helping people, helping their health, helping their children.”
Maloney will recruit the Women’s Caucus to lead congressional hearings on the issue. However, she acknowledged it might not happen as long as Republicans remain in control of Congress.
“I will be working with Council-member Cornegy to have hearings here in the City Council because 10 to 1 they won’t have them in Congress,” she said. “It is a scandal.”
Perhaps the true scandal is that the American tax payer is being forced to support this “dog and pony” show.
