Dan Savage calls US First Lady Melania Trump ‘ugly on the inside’

US First Lady Melania Trump does not live in The White House.

Author and activist Dan Savage described US First Lady Melania Trump as ‘ugly on the inside’ during his most recent Savage Love podcast.

The outspoken Savage, who is openly gay, let loose on the president’s wife at the start of his show: ‘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 is one of the producers of the ABC sitcom The Real O’Neils and founder of the It Gets Better campaign.

He has been taking on those involved in conservative politics for years – most famously former US Senator Rick Santorum.

‘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,’ Savage also said.

He has no patience for those who view Mrs. Trump as some kind of victim.

‘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 then added: ‘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.’
