Trump Derangement Syndrome was in full effect when first lady Melania Trump visited a Boston hospital this week to cuddle babies — and nearly 200 staffers staged a protest.
The first lady was visiting Boston Medical Center on Wednesday to take part in a program that uses cuddling to help nurture babies born dependent on drugs or alcohol.
That’s what the Left is protesting these days.
The one thing we can all universally agree is a good thing — and yet they made it political.
The issue, according to most of the workers staging their little protest, is the administration’s family separation policy at the border, a policy designed specifically to protect children from being used as shields by illegal alien adults.
It’s a policy implemented by previous administrations.

MORE NEWS: The real threat to America
Can you imagine visiting a hospital where you know full well that your health care may be of lesser quality simply because of your political leanings?
Why would anyone go there if they can avoid it?
What if they don’t like other things about you?
Maybe you’re from New York and they’re Red Sox fans. Should you have to wonder about your care then?
“This is not a person that we want to come to our home, our hospital,” one 26-year-old midwife told the Associated Press.
Others held signs that read: “Children in cages can’t be cuddled,” or “BMC cares for all patients,” or even, “Stop terrorizing immigrant children.”
It seems quite clear that these staffers at the hospital in Boston could have used some cuddle time of their own when they were just wee snowflakes, in our opinion.
As a physician, I am so embarrassed by these people who claim to be “medical professionals.” They look like callous buffoons as they “protest” our gracious & graceful @FLOTUS who is visiting their hospital to serve suffering babies. #Sick #TDS https://t.co/NUqcwHyZpI

Melania Trump continued her tour of the hospital, undeterred by the circus taking place outside.
Her visit was part of her Be Best initiative.
“I hope today’s visit helps shine a light on programs like yours,” she said.
Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.), a member of the AOC-led squad, issued a statement in support of the protests.
“It’s a chance to remind and educate the secretary and first lady of the ways in which our medical centers work to eliminate disparities and ensure that all people, regardless of income and immigration status, have a fundamental human right to health care,” she said.
They just don’t have a right if a conservative happens to enter the hospital, apparently.
In October of 2017, Mrs. Trump was given a humanitarian award for her work with women and children.
She is almost always well-received during her visits.
