First Lady Melania sends gifts to hospitals dealing with coronavirus

Fox61 reports Melania Trump is sending blankets, caps and other gifts to hospitals in 10 states, including some hit hardest by the new coronavirus outbreak, for use by medical staff and children who are patients.

The care packages were shipped Thursday to hospitals in New York, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Louisiana, Florida, Ohio, Tennessee, Texas, Delaware, Nevada and the District of Columbia, the White House said.

“The medical community has gone above and beyond to protect the health of the American People,” the first lady said in a statement. The packages are “just a small token of my appreciation for their courage and leadership in this time of need.”

The hospitals were not identified. Mrs. Trump met doctors and nurses at some of the hospitals during past visits to promote her youth program, the White House said.

The gifts bear the logo of her “Be Best” youth initiative and include blankets, caps, tote bags, pencils, backpacks, stickers, Dr. Seuss books and games for young patients.

TCO reported First Lady Melania Trump was bombarded on Twitter by attacks after this recent tweet.

Our thoughts & prayers continue to be w/ each person suffering & fighting to recover from this terrible virus, & with all of the families who have lost loved ones. Even though we are physically apart, we are all in this fight together.

Here is just a small sample of the responses.

No, no we’re not. Over 50,000 dead Americans because that genocidal gaslighting ghoul you married for love, of course, brushed it off as a hoax and a flu. Now It has suggested that maybe people can inject disinfectant and UV rays to kill it.Your empty words are toxic too.

Talk to your husband,

You might want to share this with your *husband* as he has yet to extend his sympathies to families hit by this virus. Your family really needs to get your priorities straight.

Keep your thoughts and prayers. Tell your husband to get the hell out of the way so the doctors can come up with a treatment and a vaccine. @realDonaldTrump

Seriously, birther. No one wants to hear from you right now.

Oh please…
