Lowlife Dan Savage Calls Melania Trump ‘Ugly on the Inside’ https://t.co/4Oa5jH4EzH
@BlissTabitha Savage lives a comfortable life. He's GOT money. Melania is far above him, and that probably doesn't sit we'll with him.
@Chris_1791 @BreitbartNews Dan Savage is as ugly on the outside as he is on the inside. Don't worry Dan, Melania hasn't thought of you 😆

Savage called her out for what he said is her quiet support of her husband's policies.

"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," he said. "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."

He pointed to President Donald Trump's birther claims made against former President Obama, in which he repeatedly questioned where the president was born.

"She is a birther. Pretty Melania went on TV to push the same racist conspiracy theories about Barack Obama that her husband did," he said in his rant.
