Melania Trump Was Secretly Recorded Discussing Her Role As First Lady

There’s long been speculation about where First Lady Melania Trump’s allegiances lie. During the last four years, she’s mostly kept quiet, other than an ill-advised “Be Best” initiative to combat cyberbullying and trip to an immigrant children’s shelter on the Texas/Mexico border where she wore a jacket that read, “I really don’t care. Do U?” on the back.

On Thursday, new insight into her behind-the-scenes beliefs emerged with the release of audio secretly recorded by her former aide and friend, Stephanie Winston Wolkoff. Wolkoff left the White House in 2018 after it was revealed her firm reportedly made $26 million off the planning of Trump’s inauguration, per the New York Times. In the summer of 2018, after Wolkoff had exited her East Wing role, she secretly taped Trump expressing disillusionment with several aspects of her life at the White House. “They say I’m complicit. I’m the same like him, I support him. I don’t say enough I don’t do enough where I am,” Trump said of criticism she received due to her husband’s separation of migrant children at the border. The First Lady added, “I’m working my ass off on the Christmas stuff, that you know, who gives a fuck about the Christmas stuff and decorations? But I need to do it, right?”

When Wolkoff confirmed she would have to carry out her yuletide duties, Trump continued, “Okay, and then I do it and I say that I’m working on Christmas and planning for the Christmas and they said, ‘Oh, what about the children that they were separated?’ Give me a fucking break. Where they were saying anything when Obama did that?’ I cannot go, I was trying get the kid reunited with the mom. I didn’t have a chance—needs to go through the process and through the law.” (CNN, where the tapes were originally aired, notes that Obama’s policy was to only separate children “when authorities had concerns for their well-being” or couldn’t confirm a legal guardian.)

Trump also suggested that children separated from their families were treated better at the border detention centers than in their home countries. “The kids, they say, ‘Wow I will have my own bed? I will sleep on the bed? I will have a cabinet for my clothes?’ It’s so sad to hear it but they didn’t have that in their own countries, they sleep on the floor,” she claimed. “They are taken care of nicely there. But you know, yeah, they are not with parents, it’s sad. But when they come here alone or with coyotes or illegally, you know, you need to do something.”

48 Cheap Things Interior Decorators Secretly Rely On To Upgrade A Home

Let’s face it: You have outdated countertops, plain white walls, and floors that are scuffed all over. That’s OK, though. It’s common for houses to need little upgrades here and there, but that doesn’t mean you have to spend an arm and a leg on renovations. Just stick to all the cheap things on Amazon that interior decorators use to upgrade homes.

Giving your dull or worn-out surfaces a makeover can help breathe new life into a room — but if you’re living in a rental, you’ll probably want something that’s removable. The white marble contact paper I’ve included will bring your outdated space from 1970 into 2020. And if your counters are already pristine, you can just as easily use it as an accent wall to your kitchen (or even as a peel-and-stick backsplash).

Contact paper isn’t the only thing that decorators use to upgrade homes for less. According to designer tips by Family Handyman, you can prevent your home from feeling stale by switching up the textures in every room. Faux fur step stools and a wrought iron wine racks are not only functional, but they make your home feel more “you.” And in the event your home is already something straight from HGTV, there’s also a pastel rug that’s subtle yet chic, pendant lights for a farmhouse vibe, and even a mulberry silk pillowcase to upgrade your bedding.

More Women Accusing Former West Penn Hospital Employee Of Secretly Recording Them In Bathroom And Exam Room

By: KDKA-TV’s Jennifer Borrasso

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — More women are coming forward and accusing a former West Penn Hospital employee of secretly recording them at the hospital.

KDKA’s Jennifer Borrasso talked to attorney Katie Shipp, who said Guy Caley not only secretly recorded employees but also patients. The attorney said the Allegheny County District Attorney’s Office has been sending letters in hopes of locating victims.

A spokesperson for the DA said there are several dozen victims.

“We’ve been getting calls almost every day about this case from different survivors,” Shipp said.

Earlier this year, a worker discovered a small video camera in an employee bathroom, and police charged Caley. Recently, he was slapped with 83 more charges.

Shipp says Caley not only preyed on coworkers in a bathroom but also patients in an exam room. Caley allegedly had patients come to his room instead of a locker room area, allowing him to secretly record them as they undressed.

“He actually took her into the room and told her to completely undress and then put a robe on, even though it was on the lower part of her body. She didn’t really understand why she needed to get completely undressed,” Shipp said.

Attorney Joshua Ward represents one victim.

“It’s a major breach of trust. And for people who need to rely on our health networks, they will never be the same,” Ward said.

Attorney Shipp believes West Penn Hospital needs to be held accountable.

“If he had been doing this for enough time that he can have presumably hundreds of victims, there had to have been some reason why for West Penn to know,” Shipp said.

Allegheny Health Network had no comment and pointed KDKA to a statement they released earlier this year calling the charges “appalling.”

Princess Diana secretly buried stillborn baby in palace garden, claims best friend

By Lifestyle Reporter Time of article published50m ago

While living at Kensington Palace, the late Princess Diana reportedly went against palace protocol and took matters into her own hands.

According to her former butler, Paul Burrell, Diana had buried her friend’s stillborn baby in the palace gardens, British tabloid, The Express reported.

Burrell wrote in his 2006 book “The Way We Are”, that her best friend Rosa Monckton had given birth to a stillborn baby in 1994 and the infant was secretly buried in the garden.

Burrell’s claim was backed up by Monckton who confirmed the incident during an interview with Australia’s Channel 7, saying that she did have a stillborn child which Diana had offered to bury in the garden.

“I’m going to tell the chief inspector that we’re going to bury a pet in the garden. Only you, I, and Rosa will know it’s a baby,” said Monckton when Burrell asked the princess how she intended to get past security.

Monckton also mentioned how she had an emotional ceremony in the garden after which the late princess of Wales gave her a key to the garden, which is still in her possession.

In September 2020, the Daily Mail reported that human remains were found at Kensington Palace.

Until today, Scotland Yard has still not properly identified the body, thought to be that of an adult female.

Following the tragic loss, Monckton and her husband Dominic Lawson later welcomed the birth of a baby girl named Domenica and asked Diana to be her godmother.

At present, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and Kate Middleton, call Kensington Palace home, along with their three children.
