Lisa Milbrand, a freelance writer who just penned an op-ed for Marie Claire, wrote in the magazine she regrets adopting her two daughters from China because Donald Trump is the president of the United States.
In fact, she called their adoptions “a tragic mistake.”
“I pulled those two beautiful babies away from a rising power and into a damaged democracy,” Milbrand wrote. “I brought two girls of color into a society where it’s clear that their word and their bodies are worth less than a man’s — and where open, overt racism has become even more likely now than it was a decade ago.”
And to her detractors, the left-leaning writer argued her concerns “aren’t exactly tinfoil-hat-wearing paranoia.”
I sort of agree with her that it was bad for her to adopt. Because she’s crazy. pic.twitter.com/UYFLQlExkV

Furthermore, she’s very concerned Trump and the U.S. Supreme Court, which now skews conservative by a thin margin, thanks to newly appointed Justice Brett Kavanaugh, will overturn the landmark 1973 decision in Roe v. Wade, legalizing abortion nationwide.
Despite the fact that Trump, a formerly pro-abortion Democrat, hasn’t talked much about abortion since taking office and both Justices Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch have described Roe v. Wade as settled law, Milbrand revealed she’s thinking about “stockpiling” Plan B pills, “just in case my daughters’ right to choose what happens to their bodies disappears.”
Milbrand even seemed to suggest China — the world’s leading communist nation — is in some way giving women more freedoms than Americans have enjoyed for many, many, many years.
“The irony isn’t lost on me that just as China started to loosen up its one-child policy and allow women there more control over their decision to become a mother,” she wrote, “my daughters may lose that right to choose here.”
But perhaps the most bizarre (and egregious) action Milbrand has taken is diverting money away from her two teenage daughters’ college funds to give to political campaigns for progressive candidates. She also skips their soccer games in order to protest.
“And on the very worst days, I start to look at what it would take to leave the country that I love, permanently. And my heart breaks just a little more,” she wrote. “I’d sacrifice everything for the sake of my daughters. I just never thought it would come to this.”
Trump, apparently unbeknownst to Milbrand, is up for re-election in 2020.
