Honestly, we noticed this ourselves Wednesday after we saw this tweet about a piece in Marie Claire magazine: it was so over-the-top, we had to do a Google search to pull up the original article and assure ourselves it was real:

We found the article easily enough but noticed that the byline had changed from “Lisa Milbrand” to “Rachel Parker,” without any editor’s note explaining why. Getting the author wrong is a pretty big mistake, and we weren’t the only ones who noticed:

The dates do line up with Lisa Milbrand’s story, but now it’s Rachel Packer’s story. Huh …

In any case, whoever claims to have adopted two daughters from China now worries she “made a tragic mistake” by bringing two girls to the United States from China, because Trump:

I pulled those two beautiful babies away from a rising power and into a damaged democracy. 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 unfortunately, my worries aren’t exactly tinfoil-hat-wearing paranoia.

Two years ago, I brought my daughters to the voting booth with me, expecting that they’d witness the election of the very first woman president. Instead, we got a guy with multiple sexual allegations made against him, who backs candidates for the highest posts in the land who also have assault and molestation claims against them.

They would have had it so much better in China, obviously.

A little too late, maybe?

Whoever wrote it, here it is.
