The Melania Trump situation – slut shaming is not the issue here…

Yes, people are slut shaming and saying some pretty bloody horrible things about Melania Trump (or Melania Knauss as she was known). But that is not the point here. There is major level hypocrisy right here… this is the issue.

Let me get one thing perfectly clear. I don’t give a hoot how naked Melania gets. She is a gorgeous woman and she looked absolutely stunning in those pictures.

The issue is this. People (mainly Republicans) have been saying “Hey, so what? She got naked. She is going to be a great First Lady. Just because she got butt naked, that shouldn’t stop her getting into the White House.”

Yup, absolutely right. Agree with that 100%.

However, we need to stop and step back here. We need to look at the bigger picture. Look at Michele Obama. Look at the vile things that were said about here when sh dared to pose for official photographs in a sleeveless gown. She looked classy and stunning. Yet republicans hurled abuse and said some utterly vile things about her. How dare she expose so much flesh? Then the issue of the colour of her skin became part of the abuse. Then they started to criticise how muscular her arms were, and how disgusting it was the a First Lady did press ups on the floor!!! There was then the issue of her wearing shorts on a hike. Again, she was exposing way too much flesh!

Can you imagine if Michele Obama had ever posed nude in any way, shape or form? Can you imagine the abuse? The sheer level of body shaming? She would never have got within 100 miles of the White House. Hypocrisy much people??? How is this different?

The issue isn’t about Melania’s nudity. It is about absence of hypocrisy and ability/appropriateness to fill a role. Which Michele Obama has done. Despite the fact she dared to bear her arms!
