    Or have the usable wood carved into something presentable inside the white house. To be on display for the rest of its foreseeable years.
    That's typically what happens to historic wood. In addition it would not surprise me to learn that one of the saplings lives on at the Jackson residence/museum.

    Yep.

    Even they know they need to stay away from the Orange Time Bomb.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    Sorry, you are right, it is older brother idiot one and older brother idiot two. Not uncles, you are totally right. My mistake.

    I'm sad for the tree as I've seen historically consequential trees taken down in my lifetime. But that said, this isn't on Mrs. Trump. She sought the advice of experts and took it. If the thing was a safety hazard, then sadly, it needs to go. It doesn't sound like she had the thing removed to be a bitch, a nasty person, or any other nefarious reason. She is doing what she feels is right, and after reading the OP, I have to agree with her. Again, it's sad, but it has to be done.

    And the saplings from the original tree are growing (I think they said the trees are now 8-10 feet.

    The tree was rotting. Filled with cement to stabilize along with wires.
    One has to wonder if it was really more a construction project, then a tree at that point.

    I guess its because she knew the front of the garment was always occupied.

    A few of them do, I believe.

    Which begs the question, why are they having such a hissy fit. When an actual piece of this tree is still surviving, while the whole is almost completely dead?

    It feels good.

    And feelings are everything in Victim Culture.
    The vigor of a society is directly proportional to its capacity to conduct difficult conversations.

    VICTIM CULTURE IS WRECKING A LOT OF IMPORTANT THINGS, TO INCLUDE GUTS AND RESILIENCE.

    Bannon says Melania cried on Election night...and they weren't tears of joy...She hates being the "first lady" and wants to back to her village in Transylvania...Is Bannon lying?
