As the saying goes, no good deed goes unpunished, and that is especially true when it comes to the Trump family.
On Friday morning, First Lady Melania Trump visited a group home called HomeSafe, in Lake Worth, Florida, bringing beautiful Easter baskets to a group of teenage girls who were victims of domestic and child abuse.

The First Lady visited the girls, ages 12 through 17, for approximately 45 minutes.

“This is a day that the girls will never forget,” Matthew Ladika, the chief executive officer of the organization told the Palm Beach Post. “It was extra special and touching…She asked them what their interests are.”
Trump also gave a speech about empowering women and children around the world.
“Together, we must declare that the era of allowing the brutality against women and children is over, while affirming that the time for empowering around the world is now,” the First Lady said. “For wherever women are diminished, the entire world is diminished with them. However, wherever women are empowered, towns and villages, schools and economies, are empowered, and together we are all made stronger with them.”
While a rational mind would find the story heartwarming, “the resistance” had other opinions.
A website called Footwear News, which focuses, naturally, on shoes and fashion, was quick to call out Trump for her choice in sandals.
“Melania Trump Surprises Kids With Easter Baskets in $1,200 Sparkling Ladylike Sandals,” their headline read.
The website, which has previously dabbled in politics to gush in their 568 posts about Michelle Obama, noted that Trump was wearing block-heeled Rene Caovilla sandals, which boast a hefty price tag.
“The Italian label’s Strass Karung embellished sandals featured crystal-beaded cutout detailing, snakeskin material, an adjustable ankle-wrap strap, and a glittery outsole. The d’Orsay style sandals were an apt choice for the sunny getaway,” the website states, innocuously.
Despite being in the business of appreciating quality footwear, however, the website went on to seemingly disparage the First Lady for doing something kind while maintaining her own personal style.
“No doubt the children will weigh heavily on her mind on Easter as she enjoys a holiday meal and restful time amid the terra-cotta-roofed Mar-a-Lago, which boasts sweeping oceanfront views nearly 11 miles away,” shoe blogger Charlie Carballo added.
Other than a short piece in a blog for the Palm Beach Post, mentions on a few conservative leaning websites, and a hit piece on her shoes — there was a near media blackout on Trump’s sweet visit.
“How does the national media try to control how Americans perceive the Trump presidency? One way is to not report on actions that make the Trumps look good,” Kristinn Taylor wrote for the Gateway Pundit, in her piece noting the media blackout.

San Francisco Dumps Environmentalism, Bans Reusable Bags at Grocery Stores During Coronavirus Pandemic
Environmentalism is thrown by the wayside during a crisis.
The ultra left-wing city of San Francisco, Calif. is bailing on environmentalism during a time of great crisis, banning the use of reusable plastic bags at grocery stores temporarily due to concerns regarding the spread of coronavirus.
The San Francisco Department of Public Health has issued an ordinance preventing city residents from taking reusable items into the public and using them in essential stores. They believe this will make it more difficult for germs to proliferate throughout the city.
“There is no effective treatment or cure yet for the disease, testing ability while improving remains constrained, and San Francisco’s health care system is at ongoing risk of being overwhelmed. For these reasons, it is imperative that San Francisco not only extend the duration of its stay at home order but also further limit essential activities and extend social distancing requirements outside the home,” the ordinance reads.
San Francisco Mayor London Breed has not hesitated to shut down civil society in order to combat the spread of coronavirus. She has effectively tossed environmentalism to the wayside, showing that the frequent leftist bugaboo is not actually a pressing concern.
“I can’t reiterate enough how important it is for all of us to continue to comply, for all of us to continue to be good citizens, to cooperate,” said Breed, who has issued lockdown edicts that last until at least May 3.
Today we officially extended the stay at home health order through May 3. I want to thank the people of San Francisco for continuing to do their part to save lives. I know this isn’t easy but we will get through it together. pic.twitter.com/4rggISBnQv

In 2007, San Francisco was the first city in America to ban the use of plastic shopping bags. The leftists on the Board of Supervisors enacted this prohibition to satisfy Mother Earth and potentially start a trend throughout the country.
“I am astounded and surprised by the worldwide attention,” Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi said at the time, according to the SFGate. “Hopefully, other cities and other states will follow suit.”
The grocery store lobby in the state came out against the regulation at the time, believing that it would accomplish little to help the environment and only serve to frustrate consumers.
“We’re disappointed that the Board of Supervisors is going down this path,” said Kristin Power, who worked as the vice president of government relations for the California Grocers Association.
“It will frustrate recycling efforts and will increase both consumer and retailer costs. There’s also a real concern about the availability and quality of compostable bags,” she added.
By instituting their emergency measures, San Francisco has demonstrated that environmental concerns are not particularly important in the grand scheme of things. These lofty goals are put on the back burner when a real crisis, such as the coronavirus panic, takes precedence.
