Dan Savage is not hiding his true feelings about the US’s new first lady. On the most recent episode of his Savage Lovecast podcast, the LGBT advocate admits: “I f**king hate Melania Trump.”
The first lady has favor in the eyes of many Americans, as seen in recent polls. But Savage feels that people aren’t seeing her clearly at all. He says that the public currently has an “undeservedly charitable view” of Melania. He believes some people almost pity her as a “pretty princess in the tower locked up by the orange ogre.” But he does not see her as a passive accomplice.
Savage went so far as to say: “Melania Trump is as ugly on the inside as she is pretty on the outside.”
“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 sh*t about the plight of other immigrants,” he said. “She’s famously a plagiarist, and she’s brought ruinous lawsuits against journalists and bloggers, accusing them ― amongst other things ― of potentially interfering with her ability to profit off her role as first lady.”
“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,” Savage concluded.
