This story isn’t as good as the Alan Dershowitz story, wherein Dershowitz claimed that being shunned at Martha’s Vineyard parties was McCarthyism and a major civil rights issue. But this story is similar to that. This story is about Melissa Francis, who used to an actress and is now an on-air talent for Fox Business. She’s blonde and she interviews Republicans and she doesn’t even pretend to be a journalist. She’s a proud Trump supporter, one cog in the state-run Trump Business Network. She wears her party affiliation on her sleeve, it seems. And then she gets mad because there are consequences to her Trump-supporting ways. Those consequences? She belongs to a super-elite country club and they won’t let her eat dinner there!! LMAO.
Fox News host Melissa Francis took to Twitter to accuse her local country club of shunning her family, suggesting she was being targeted because of her political views. While previewing an interview with a Trump official on her Fox Business Network show, Francis wrote on Sunday night, “happy you’re in NYC even if Siwanoy shuns my family yet again (they must prefer @CNN v @FoxNews ).”
Francis claimed that while she is a member of the posh Bronxville, New York establishment, she can’t get a table there for dinner.
“We are member of Siwanoy Bronxville but somehow, they can’t fit us in for dinner,” she wrote. “Repeatedly. I’m sure it’s a coincidence and not something more. Right?” Francis concluded with several hashtags suggesting the alleged discrimination was politically motivated: “#NeverTrumpers #cnn #HillaryForever?”
The Siwanoy is a century-old country club and golf course in the bucolic Westchester suburb of Bronxville, a short Lincoln Towncar-ride from Midtown Manhattan.
Can you even imagine the horror of belonging to an elite country club, paying those annual fees and then – GASP – not even getting a table? This is a civil rights issue!! This is discrimination against blonde white women who support Donald Trump! This is the new McCarthyism! Seriously, how f–ked up is this country that there are still thousands of traumatized children being kept in cages by the government, and here’s a Fox Business “journalist” using her platform to complain about her country club not letting her in for dinner? American politics in a nutshell.
