For the first six months of President Donald Trump’s administration, First Lady Melania Trump and their son Barron Trump were living at their usual home at Trump Tower in New York City. It had been reported that the Trumps didn’t want to remove Barron, who is only 11 years old, from his school, hockey league, and friends during mid school year.
But now since the school year is over, First Lady Melania Trump’s communications director, Stephanie Grisham, tweeted out that the First Lady and Son were officially in Washington DC and living in the White House.

And in what was a surprise to everyone they also brought along none other than Melania’s Parents, Viktor and Amalija Knavs, who will be moving in with them. What a great idea. To bring in 11-year-old Barron’s grandparents to live with them in order to make Barron’s life less stressful. Especially after seeing how viciously the media and Lunatic Celebrities have gone after him in the recent months in order to get to President Trump.
We can rest assured the scumbags in the media will be upset with all this of course. They will probably forget the fact that former First Lady Michele “Never Proud of my Country” Obama also brought in her mother to help with the raising of her two daughters Melia and Sasha. But unlike Mrs. Obama’s mother, Melania’s parents will not be getting a salary.
A reminder from Fox News:
Get ready for the in-law in chief.
President-elect Barack Obama’s mother-in-law, Marian Robinson, is moving into the White House at least temporarily to join Michelle Obama and the two children, transition officials said Friday.
That’s good news not just for late-night comics, but for 10-year-old Malia and 7-year-old Sasha. During the campaign, Robinson retired from her job as a bank executive secretary to help care for her granddaughters.
“Mrs. Robinson will be coming with the family to help the girls get acclimated, and she will determine in the coming months whether or not she wants to stay in D.C. permanently,” said Katie McCormick Lelyveld, spokeswoman for Michelle Obama.
Michelle Obama also made another hotly awaited decision: She’s keeping the White House chef. Cristeta Comerford took the job in 2005 and is the first woman and first minority to serve as executive chef.
“Cristeta Comerford brings such incredible talent to the White House operation and came very highly regarded from the Bush family,” Michelle Obama said in a statement released by the transition team. “Also the mom of a young daughter, I appreciate our shared perspective on the importance of healthy eating and healthy families.”
Plenty of in-laws have taken up residence in the White House before, not to mention cousins, grandchildren and other relatives.
“Throughout history there have been many extended first families in office,” said Robert Watson, author of “Life in the White House.”
Ulysses S. Grant’s father-in-law, Richard Dent, stayed for several years. Harry S. Truman’s mother-in-law, Madge Gates Wallace, lived there, too, and was critical of her son-in-law.
“She never liked him. She always felt that Bess had married below her station,” said Myra Gutin, a first lady historian and professor at Ryder University in New Jersey.
“For his part, he was gracious. Whatever Mother Wallace wanted, she pretty much got.”
Mamie Eisenhower’s mother also had extended stays, but like her daughter she tended to sleep until noon, said Maria Downs of the White House Historical Association.
Even the presidents’ mothers can be tough. Lillian Carter stayed in the White House and got on well with her son Jimmy, but Gutin said that when he first told her, “Mom, I’m going to run for president,” she replied, “President of what?”
By all accounts, Obama has a good relationship with his mother-in-law. She had put off retirement for years, but finally retired last summer to take care of the granddaughters while their parents campaigned.
“She didn’t want anyone else taking care of the kids but her,” McCormick Lelyveld said. “She wanted to be the one there.”
Barack Obama has called her one of the unsung heroes of his campaign, and spoke of holding her hand on election night.
But when asked by “60 Minutes” if Robinson would move in, he quipped: “Well, I don’t tell my mother-in-law what to do. But I’m not stupid. That’s why I got elected president, man.”
In some ways, Mrs. Robinson’s decision to move – at least temporarily — is no real surprise. During the presidential campaign, Mrs. Robinson was a family mainstay, caring for the Obama girls, Sasha and Malia, while their parents were on the road.
She took them to school, to piano lesson and dance.
Liberals being the hateful scumbags that they are of course went after the Trump family for not moving into the White House on day one. Because you know, it’s really “expensive” to have the Secret Service at Trump Tower for a whole 6 months. But the billions of dollars former President Barack Hussein Obama and his family spent on lavish vacations, many of whom were separate vacations, were A-Ok to the left.
