The Case for Deporting Melania Trump’s Parents

By Karen

I’m almost numb to Donald Trump’s flabby orange face and whiny voice. But yesterday’s news that Melania Trump’s parents, Viktor and Amalija Knavs, became naturalized U.S. citizens thanks to chain immigration was a fresh gut punch.

The White House won’t say, but it’s assumed Melania sponsored her parents’ green cards. No one knows when, but they were supposed to have the cards for five years before applying for citizenship.

In late February 2018, the Knavses were granted permanent legal residency, although they appear to have no legal residence. They shuttle between Trump Tower in New York, Trump’s golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, and the White House.

But let’s back up a bit. We don’t even know if Melania’s own 2006 citizenship is legal. Trump promised in August 2016 that Melania would give a press conference and reveal all, but it never happened.

The AP uncovered 1996 records where Melania earned $20,056 for 10 modeling gigs in the seven weeks BEFORE she had permission to work here under her visa. The government today could revoke her citizenship based on that, but we all know that’s not going to happen, either.

So once Trump became the White House’s official squatter, Melania’s retired parents pop over from Slovenia to join the gravy train. Now they flit here and there on Air Force One, housed, guarded and fed at taxpayer expense as administration hangers-on.

The Knavses, 2011, Pacific Coast News

Trump declares he wants only the best, the brightest and the whitest to enter this country, and the Knavses fit exactly ONE of those criteria. Let’s peek into the backgrounds of these new citizens.…

Viktor, 74, was a Communist Party member when Slovenia was part of Yugoslavia under Josip Tito. He chauffeured the mayor of their town, Sevnica (pop. approx. 5,000). He was a traveling salesman for a state-owned car company. By the time Melania was 15, he had a bicycle and car parts shop in Slovenia’s capital, Ljubljana, and owned an apartment that Melania lived in while attending high school there.

Before Viktor married Melania’s mother, he fathered an illegitimate son named Denis, tried to deny paternity and failed to pay court-ordered child support. Melania has never met Denis.

Melania’s mother Amalija, 72, used to harvest red onions on her family’s farm. She also worked in a government-owned textile factory, sewed her two daughters’ clothes, and designed and drew patterns for children’s clothing.

It would appear the Knavses’ citizenship was fast-tracked to slip them in even as Trump’s screams grow louder about stamping out immigrants, even the legal ones.

We’re left with questions…

Will the Knavses now apply for Social Security, which they never paid into?

Will they be on Medicare, which they never paid into?

What’s given is they’ll continue bellying up to the trough we taxpayers keep filling for them as long as freeloading Trumps occupy the White House.

The vast majority of people who emigrate here give up everything to escape poverty and violence so they may forge better, safer lives for their families through hard work. Yet Trump vilifies them, discriminates against them and kidnaps their children.

He’d rather welcome parasites like the Knavses, who offer nothing but white skin.

As of July 2016, the Knavses owned a home in Sevnica and a Mercedes, watched over by security guards. For their own protection, they should be shipped back before Trump’s administration crashes — and it will. They could open a Melania Trump souvenir shop. She’s become Sevnica’s biggest tourist attraction.

BONUS: The New York Times wrote an extensive story on Melania’s Slovenian roots in 2016.

    It just keeps getting worse! This “family” is such garbage!

    Digest this. Trumps cost to taxpayers for golf outings to his resorts is estimated at $74 million so far.

    I don’t know if the shuttling, housing, and protection of the Knavses are included in these estimates. I doubt it.

    When he travels to his resorts he charges the federal gov for his accommodations and likely the Knavses if they accompany him Even though he “owns” these properties.

    Yet he does not pay federal taxe as asserted during his first debate with HRC.

    He claimed that made him smart.

    Thus we pay for this orange Russian asset to squander milllions in taxes he proudly doesn’t pay, to House his KGB handler Melania and her equally compromised parents.

    If Melania & her parents are not on Putins payroll why is she still there? She loathes him. He’s humiliated her by raw dogging porn stars, playmates and so much more…while she was pregnant.

    SOMEONE has to be there to ensure he stays in the WH while Putin dupes him out of Crimea, lifts sanctions, guts NATO, and gets billions in economic assistance from the compromised PissQueene that is our potus.

  4. catsworking says:

    Hahaha! Thank you for pointing out the typo. I’ve corrected it. Melania’s father was/is? a Communist.

  5. catsworking says:

    Morgan, it’s simply beyond outrage that Trump charges our government for the Secret Service and his flying monkeys to stay at his properties so he can pocket the profit at our expense. They should ALL be comped 100%

    Big, bad rich guy, beholden to nobody because he can finance everything himself, yet never pays a freaking PENNY of his own money to maintain him and his whole trampy family. The champion of the have-nots, my ass. When will those morons wake up?

    And whatever happened to him giving back his salary? I think they made a big deal about the first two paychecks, then nothing. You know he’s quietly pocketing that cash because HE NEEDS IT DESPERATELY. His wealth is as fake as everything else about him. He’s probably as broke as Manafort.

    “If Melania & her parents are not on Putins payroll why is she still there”

    Money. She’s a trophy wife. I read that divorce was actually in the works but then he ran for pres and divorce would have harmed the campaign, or so they thought, so she agreed to delay for additional $$ in the prenup.

    Can someone find out when the new air filthifying reduced car emissions proposal is going to be avail for public comment and post the link here? I want to be sure to comment but don’t see it. Isn’t it supposed to be in the fed register? He also wants to gut the endangered species act.

    IMO making the air and water dirtier is by FAR the worst thing Cheeto is doing and the stupid media (by stupid media I refer to cnn and msnbc) isn’t covering it. They’re too busy covering reality TV-level BS like Trump vs. McCain, Trump vs. Lebron, Trump vs. Don Lemon. Ratings and click bait over news. Who cares about these dumb feuds?!

  7. Morganlf says:

    She was actually a soft porn model with bad teeth and a wide nose.

    I have images of her naked with other women, buck nekked with black heels a hand over her privates…so classy, a regular Jackie Kennedy.

    If that’s a trophy wife she’s a cheap copy, like Cheeto. He never had the bullets to get a real Super Model…only Commie mail order types with no social standing, money, who can’t speak the Queen’s English.

    Granted she looks gorgeous now but …

    I also read the divorce was in the works, but I’m starting to think that was a plant, fake news, lest it be known she’s his handler.

    She’ll be gone after the WH tour. By then her job will be done.

  8. catsworking says:

    Trump’s taste in women has always been trashy. If they’re from a Third World country, even better. It’s all part of his need to feel powerful. Hookers, bunnies, porn actresses, mail order brides.

    I would LOVE for Melania and her parents to be exposed as Trump’s handlers, on Putin’s payroll. Unfortunately, they’re all so stupid it’s hard to imagine Putin trusting them., let alone paying them to do his bidding. Let them go sell Melania keychains in Slovenia.

  9. Morganlf says:

    It was meant to be ironic. What with the “deep state conspiracy” trump and his MAGATS are pushing to discredit Muellers investigation.

    I advance the theory that Melania “and family” are KGB handlers, playing Putins long game to protect their long cultivated broke ass, vain, stupid, know nothing asset, by installing that feeble minded narcissist in the Oval Office to dismantle democracy.

    He is autocratic, unread, has infested the WH with family and cronies. Knows nothing of history, politics, or business, attacks the press, tampers with rule of law, kowtows to dictators attacks our allies.. In what crazed fourth dimension does this happen?

    Yet here we have it. trump is president of the most powerful superpower on the planet. A beast, a coward, a racist.

    It just has to be a plot right? Or are Americans that stupid?

    Easy on the bunnies! Wink!

  10. Lynn says:

    Or are Americans that stupid?

    Yes, yes and definitely yes. However the majority of Americans are not in his cult. He only won because of Cinderella syndrome (see Susan Sarandon and all the other third-party-voting assholes), laziness and an incorrect assumption that Hillary would win, thus no need to vote among those that would have otherwise voted Dem.

    If Melania keeps having work done around her eyes they will disappear. The nose job is an improvement but jeez, I don’t know who told her tiny eyes are preferable (and to make them look even tinier by lining the top and bottom with heavy black). It’s not a good look.

  11. Morganlf says:

    Agreed…The Boris & Natasha look, was so 1963!

  12. catsworking says:

    No offense intended on the bunnies. I was thinki of Karen McDougal. 😉

    At this point, it wouldn’t surprise me if Melania and her folks are double-crossing Trump with Putin behind his back, believing they’re going to cash in from both sides.

  13. catsworking says:

    Lynn, I haven’t been noticing that Melania’s having work done, but it would surprise me. She seems to have the same attitude toward eyeliner as Sarah Jessica Parker — the more the better. SJP looks like a freak raccoon most of the time.

    I’ve got fingers crossed that Trump is causing enough righteous outrage among Americans who still have a shred of decency left that they will vote in November and take back BOTH houses of Congress.

  14. Lynn says:

    Karen I am basing it on photos of her from many years back vs now. I don’t know that she’s had anything done recently beyond the usual Botox and fillers. But no woman her age has a complete lack of any hollowing or tear trough lines below the eyes. That skin is pulled so tight you could bounce quarters off it. If she hasn’t had surgery, it’s definitely from fillers. Not that I’m against those – I totally plan to get fillers when the time comes. But I wouldn’t get so much that my eyes look smaller than Clint Eastwood’s.

  15. bamboo.skewer says:

    I have to limit Trump news for my mental health but THIS … “bellying up to the trough” … says everything about this.

    How many conversations were going on about their impending citizenship at the same moment children were ripped from arms of parents who did NOT illegally cross a border. The lack of transparency about exact dates, and exact path to citizenship, says everything about how Trump operates. Which is really no new news. He doesn’t give a shit about justifying and explaining this, when he tries to hold immigrants with browner skin up to the highest standards of following laws with boundaries that move according to Trump’s whim to keep them out. Melania’s parents are likely to be bigger freeloaders on our society than any immigrant who crossed a desert and flirted with death in order to try to earn money and build a better life in a safer environment. But his rabid followers won’t allow themselves to see that and that’s a real travesty.

  16. catsworking says:

    bamboo, we basically have a dictator who Congress has granted free rein to vilify and destroy individuals or groups as his whims dictate. He’s shown himself to be the most racist person ever to be in the WH, and the most willing to let a certain chosen few profit at our expense while turning a blind eye to the suffering he inflicts on the rest. He is a monster without soul or conscience.

    Russia aside, his treason against the American people is without precedent and there’s no punishment harsh enough to make him pay for it.

  17. Mira says:

    Trump is an evil clown, and acts accordingly, but what I think baffles most people, outside of USA, is how did the Republican party get to that point, not to be able to offer a decent presidential candidate in years. And besides Obama, who was at least likeable, neither the Democrats.

  18. Morganlf says:

    Karen and others, so heartfully put.

    Obama is the reason trump exists. The magats hated a mixed race president.
    Bernie Sanders, the divider, is why we have a fascist president.
    Hey Bernie you idiot …please fuck off!!

  19. Dingobeast says:

    Meanwhile, a 4 year old where I live is about about to be deported. Her parents adopted her in Guatemala as an infant. Stephen Miller is a hateful criminal, I hope he ends up with charges against him.

  20. catsworking says:

    Mira, there were some decent candidates (for Republicans), but Trump barged in with his ignorant, buffoony schtick and people thought, “Ooh, how entertaining! He can never win, but he’s so fun to watch!”

    The 16 or so other candidates he bumped off one by one would have been better served to stick to their guns and keep calling him a crook, a moron, and a con man, but instead they dutifully stuffed their faces far up Trump’s ass once he got into the White House (Rubio, Graham, others), and now we have a dictator supported by mindless enablers who say Trump is above the law and the crimes he continues to commit are just ducky.

    For this state of affairs, as much as the racist rubes who actually voted for Trump, we can also blame the Bernie and third-party “protest” voters who wasted enough votes to destroy Hillary’s chances.

    Morgan, I agree with you that Obama set the stage for Trump because his very existence unleashed a racist backlash that’s probably going to take another generation or two to stomp down again.

  21. Lynn says:

    Regarding immigration hypocrisy, enjoy the following. Stephen ‘my head looks like a penis’ Miller’s own uncle slams him in Politico essay:

    Morgan, I hate Bernie as much as the next Bernie hater, but I can’t lay Hill’s defeat at his feet. She was in ’08 and ’16 a lousy, boring personality-less candidate. Yet despite those deficits, she would be Pres right now without Comey’s letter.

    But let’s face it, there’d be no Comey letter if she’d managed to not make the arrogant, unbelievably dumb choice to use a private server, or barring that, had managed to do what many advised her to do which is dismiss Huma Abedin. Even Trump called that one, correctly predicting that Huma would become a liability. No Huma, no inane decision on Huma’s part to forward Hillary emails to a laptop she shared with Weiner (what, they’re too poor to afford 2 laptops?), thus no Hill emails on Weiner’s laptop.

    Or maybe she could have just listened to her husband and actually 1. had a message for the white working class and 2. visited Wisconsin. But her jackass Millennial know-it-all campaign manager Robby Mook decided he knew best, told Bill to ‘go to bed, old man, I got this’, and then found his supposedly genius data operation bested by one set up by Jared ‘zero data or campaign experience’ Kushner. She probably also shouldn’t have disappeared the entire summer to fund raise while Cheeto was all over the country doing his third reich rallies.

    Yes, I’m bitter. lol

  22. catsworking says:

    Lynn, thank for that link. If there’s anybody in the Trump administration in the running to be even more contemptible than he is, it’s Stephen Miller (and Sarah “Soulless” Sanders).

    I agree with you on all the errors Hillary made that cost her the presidency. I didn’t like her, but I wanted her to win. There’s a post in the archives somewhere by Adele saying that Hillary would have stood a better chance had she cut Bill loose when all his infidelities came to light. She’d have shed at least that baggage going into 2016 and been seen as a strong independent woman, rather than putting ambition above all else.

    Ditching Huma was a no-brainer, and I don’t know why she didn’t. Also, the private server. But in light of Omarosa taping anybody and everybody around the WH and now blabbing it to the world, and Trump blabbing on an unsecured phone to any foreign leaders who will listen to him at all hours, Hillary’s server (which has yielded ZERO consequences to national security) make it seem like a petty distraction.

  23. Mira says:

    Thank you for that link ( re immigration hypocrisy).
    We need more uncles and elders to speak out and call out the ingrateful offspring that do not realise or do not want to know of their own family history and hardship.
    It is an increasingly ugly world we live in.
    No one can afford to keep silent. The conscientious in all parts of the world need to speak out, on behalf of those who have been silenced.
