Rebecca Crowder, executive director of Lily’s Place in Huntington, is featured in a White House promotional video published Friday, Jan. 26, 2018.
Hundreds of “Love Trumps Haters” TRASHED her for being happy that FLOTUS Melania Trump had come to the facility to meet the staff and newborn patients in person and that President Trump and his administration have shown continued interest in helping the facility.
Crowder’s life is dedicated to helping sick newborns, tiny babies born with “neonatal abstinence syndrome” or NAS, a group of problems that occurs in newborns who were exposed to addictive opiate drugs before birth.
“Honestly, I’m scared for what our world has become – that you can’t watch that video and think about those babies,” Crowder said. “Instead, people were mean, ugly and nasty. They got personal. They don’t know me.
Nevertheless, she stands by her praise for the administration’s consistent support. “I will never apologize for whatever I have to do to take care of these babies.”
“I don’t care what administration it is. If they’re doing something good, let’s acknowledge that good instead of focusing on all the hate.”
“I get it – people feel very passionate about politics or Trump or whoever. But the reality is this is the first administration that has stepped up to help us. And don’t think I didn’t try with the last (administration). They just weren’t as receptive to me.”
