First lady Melania Trump called 'ugly on the inside' by anti-bullying activist Dan Savage


Anti-bullying and LGBT activist Dan Savage has been known to share his blunt take on conservatives in the past, and now he's taking aim at first lady Melania Trump.

On his podcast, Savage went on a rant about how much he dislikes the first lady, saying "Melania Trump is as ugly on the inside as she is pretty on the outside."

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.

He called the first lady a plagiarist her 2016 speech at the Republican National Convention, which included many elements that were identical or similar to excerpts of former first lady Michelle Obama's 2008 speech.

"She's an immigrant who doesn't give a s— about the plight of other immigrants," he also claimed of the current first lady.
