What I have an objection to is the hypocrisy of the right in the ongoing characterizations of Michelle Obama as (variously) a lesbian, a man, a trans individual, ugly, clueless, tasteless and so much more while portraying Melania as perfect and flawless and so much better when she has this in her past. She would be the first First Lady to have appeared nude in print. Personally, she’s a model, and some models go down that road. Big whoop. But don’t criticize one and practically canonize the other in the same breath and expect no pushback.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
