Anti-bullying gay activist Dan Savage — not exactly known for liking conservatives, no matter who they are — was heard pushing around first lady Melania Trump, TheWrap reported.
“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,” he said on his latest “Savage Love” podcast, TheWrap noted.
“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 said, according to the entertainment outlet. “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 also said Melania Trump is admired because many “think that the insides of pretty people match the outsides of pretty people," TheWrap reported.
“It’s definitely not true in this case," he continued, the outlet said. "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**t 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.”
While Savage also is known for It Gets Better — a project aimed at helping bullied gay teenagers — the anti-bullying icon sure knows how to dish it out. Savage called a gay conservative group "house f*****s," marked the death of conservative Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia by dedicating the rest of his "weekend's marital sodomy" to his "memory," and called high schoolers "pansy-assed" as they walked out of his journalism conference address after he bashed the Bible.
