During Mr. Obama's 8 years as POTUS, the Rabid Right, like a dog on a bone, reminded anyone who would listen to them that Barack Hussein Obama, Sr., was a Communist, a dubious claim, he was more likely a Socialist. But how this had anything to do with President Obama is a mystery, since Obama, Sr., left his wife, Stanley Anne, three years after their son was born, and he saw Barack, Jr., only once more for a brief visit in Hawaii when the future president was ten years old.
Why do I bring this up?
Only to illustrate, for the gazillionth time, the Rabid Right's dedication to hypocrisy.
The Rabid Right is completely silent on the fact that the future FLOTUS, Melania Trump, grew up in a home where the head of the household, Viktor Knavs, was a card-carrying member of the Communist Party. That's right.
I've yet to read anything on the Rabid Right that discusses this prickly little nugget of news that would have, (had it been about Michelle Obama), sent the Communist-obsessed righties into orbit with rage, accusations, and lamentations.
So let that sink in. The next FLOTUS grew up in a Communist household. Melania Trump's father was a Communist*.
*(NOTE: If it were the Rabid Right reporting this news about a Democratic FLOTUS's father, they would have described him as a "dirty Communist.")
The wife of the next POTUS and the most ridiculous man in world politics is the daughter of a card-carrying communist.
"Although her dad Viktor Knavs was a registered Communist, her mum Amalija wasn’t. But it is pretty exceptional, as at that time only around five per cent of Slovenians were Communist party members."
And here's a photo of Melania's father. Does he remind you of anyone?
And here is a copy of proof of his Communist Party membership:

What does this all mean? Possibly nothing -- or maybe not. We don't know yet.
I think it's extraordinary that Melania Trump, nee Knavs, was raised in a Communist home and that the future POTUS, Donald Trump and the present GOP have such a strong affinity for the former Communist head of the KGB, because Trump and the present GOP probably owe the recent electoral victory to Vladimir Putin.
Remember when the GOP was all about finding Reds under your beds? Now all we need to do to find one is to look at Melania Trump's family tree.
