Former NYT Reporter Kurt Eichenwald Trashes First Lady: Says he is “furious” she is “a foreigner”

Eichenwald's vicious and hateful attack was brought on by the renovations Melania Trump has completed on the White House's Rose Garden


Liberals claim to be pro-immigrant.

But in practice, they only appreciate immigrants that fall in line with their progressive ideas.

Take former New York Times reporter Kurt Eichenwald for example.

He recently attacked the First Lady over her renovations on the White House Rose Garden.

In his hateful attack on Melania, Eichenwald said Melania is a foreigner and she has no business renovating anything in the White House.

Fox News reports the details of Eichenwald’s disgusting attack:

Former New York Times reporter Kurt Eichenwald slammed first lady Melania Trump for renovating the White House Rose Garden saying on Saturday that he is “furious” she is “a foreigner,” sparking pushback from other journalists.

“It is a destruction of our history, something no other First Lady would have had the gall to do,” Eichenwald, a New York Times bestselling author, tweeted on Saturday, “This is the first time I have been furious that @FLOTUS is a foreigner. She has no right to wreck our history.”

Eichenwald, who later tweeted an apology, made the comments reacting from a tweet from the first lady on Saturday, which featured photos of the renovations.

“Excited to honor history & celebrate the future in our beautiful @WhiteHouse Rose Garden this evening,” Trump tweeted. “Thank you to all who helped renew this iconic & truly gorgeous space.”

Melania Trump, who grew up in Slovenia and became a U.S. citizen in 2006, posted the tweet on the same day the work on the garden, which took three weeks to complete, was showcased to reporters.

Melania Trump has been overseeing a redesign of the Rose Garden to restore it to its original 1962 blueprint dating back to the Kennedy administration.

“The very act of planting a garden involves hard work and hope in the possibility of a bright future,” she said in a statement last month. “Preserving the history and beauty of the White House and its grounds is a testament to our nation’s commitment to the care of this landscape and our dedication to American ideals, safeguarding them for our children and their children for generations to come.”

Eichenwald, who spent two decades as a senior writer at The New York Times, also tweeted on Saturday, “I still find it unbelievable that @FLOTUS who has only been a citizen since the middle of GW Bush’s second term had the audacity to wreck the Rose Garden, to pull up history dating back a lifetime.”

“These trashy, evil, stupid people need to get out of our house,” he continued. “What GALL she has.”

Here’s Eichenwald’s tweeted apology, which really doesn’t seem like much of an apology:

Melania has in fact been a US citizen since 2006!

It's truly vile that Eichenwald believes she has no business in the White House simply beause she was born in a different country.

It just goes to show you that liberals view immigrants as pawns in their scheme.

To their credit, some liberals chimed in and chastised Eichenwald for his comments:
