Professional-bully-masquerading-as-columnist Dan Savage ripped First Lady Melania Trump on his podcast yesterday, insinuating that liberals give Melania a pass because of her looks. Savage did not mince words about his disdain for her.
God knows there’s enough hate in the world and I don’t want to add to the sum total, but forgive me, I have got to get this off my chest: I f–ing hate Melania Trump. I’m not alone in loathing Donald Trump’s third wife — she’s married to a misogynist after all. Odds are good her husband hates her too. But there are some folks on the left who not only don’t hate her, they view her as some sort of sympathetic figure. The pretty princess in the tower locked up by the orange ogre with the bad combover, a princess desperately blinking out distress signals during swearing-in ceremonies and inaugural balls.
Savage subsequently charged Melania with being a “birther,” which her husband had been during Obama’s presidency, accused her of hating immigrants despite being one herself, and said that she is inherently an ugly person.
It’s definitely not true in this case. Mrs. Trump, Melania Trump, is as ugly on the inside as she is pretty on the outside. She is a birther. Pretty Melania went on TV to push the same racist conspiracy theories about Barack Obama that her husband did. She’s an immigrant who doesn’t give a s— about the plight of other immigrants. She’s famously a plagiarist. And she’s brought ruinous lawsuits against journalists and bloggers accusing them of among other things, potentially interfering with her ability to profit off her role as first lady.
Savage has spent nearly two decades bullying those on the right. Ironically, President Obama elevated Savage’s “It Gets Better” project, which raised awareness of bullying against members of the LGBTQ community, back in 2010.
Savage has made a career out of slandering Republicans. At one point, he went on Real Time with Bill Maher and declared that he wished all Republicans would die. As The Daily Wire‘s Ben Shapiro wrote in his best-seller “Bullies“:
If you Google Rick Santorum’s name, you’ll get a disgusting definition: “The frothy mix of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the byproduct of anal sex.” That’s because Savage coined the definition and Google-bombed it in order to slander Santorum for Santorum’s opposition to gay marriage. The campaign was so successful that Savage threatened to change the definition of “Rick” to something similarly disgusting. As if that weren’t enough, Savage also appeared on Real Time with Bill Maher stating that he wanted to “f– the shit out of [Santorum].”
What a great guy, isn’t he?
