Dan Savage Says He’s Sick And Tired Of The Current First Lady: ‘I F*cking Hate Melania Trump!’

Dan Savage is a well-known advocate for LGBT rights and host of the “Savage Lovecast” podcast. And he says he’s sick and tired of all the deference being shown to Melania Trump by many in this country.

Savage began one his podcasts by announcing:

“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 fucking hate Melania Trump.”

Then Savage went on to explain why he feels so strongly about the current First Lady:

“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.

“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 theorizes that liberals have an “undeservedly charitable view” of Melania Trump because she’s attractive, so she has to be pretty on the inside, too. Savage says he could not disagree more strongly:

“It’s definitely not true in this case. Mrs. Trump, Melania Trump, is as ugly on the inside as she is pretty on the outside.”


As evidence, Savage reminded his listeners of two things:

  • Melania is a birther who “went on TV to push the same racist conspiracy theories about Barack Obama that her husband did.”
  • Her hypocritical views on immigration, her plagiarism, and her lawsuits against the media:

“She’s an immigrant who doesn’t give a sh*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.”

And Savage said the double standard of how Melania Trump is treated compared to Michelle Obama also angers him:

“I don’t know if you can impeach a first lady or how that would work. But I do know that we would have found out pretty fucking fast if Michelle Obama had said the same during her husband’s presidency.”


Add to all of this the fact that Melania wore a jacket as she was boarding a plane to visit children who had been ripped away from their parents by her husband which read:

“I really don’t care. Do u?”

Considering the case Savage makes — and what we’ve seen from the current First Lady — it does make you wonder if she gives a damn about anything but herself.

‘Queen Of Bullsh*t’ Kellyanne Conway Says Anderson Cooper’s Eye Roll Was ‘Sexism’ (VIDEO)

If you haven’t heard enough complete nonsense from members of the Trump administration this week, senior aide Kellyanne Conway decided to go all Spinal Tap during an interview with the dunces at Fox and Friends and crank up the crazy to eleven on Thursday morning.

Commenting on the way CNN host Anderson Cooper rolled his eyes her when she appeared on his show to try and defend the firing of FBI Director James Comey, the always whiny Ms. Conway remarked:

“Let me tell you something. Hillary Clinton is in search of sexism as a lame excuse for why her disastrous candidacy and campaign lost six months ago.

“I face sexism a lot of times when I show up for interviews like that. Can you imagine rolling your eyes. Having a male anchor on a network roll eyes at Hillary Clinton, a female representative spokeswoman for President Obama or President Bill Clinton. I think no.”

How exactly is it sexist for Cooper to roll his eyes at someone as constantly full of crap as Kellyanne Conway? She was lying her ass of when she gave that interview, and Cooper responded. That’s sexism?

As a matter of fact, Conway’s lies have earned her a title from Bill Moyers: “The Queen of Bullshit.” As he wrote earlier this year:

“Like her boss, she often turns a question into a chance to make herself the victim.”

Yes! Exactly! Someone calls her out or draws attention to her “alternative facts” and suddenly she’s the aggrieved party in the confrontation. That’s not only bad debate technique, it also lets you know that the person knows he or she cannot possibly win the moment, so they resort to pretending they’re being attacked. Poor me! Don’t you feel sorry for me?

No, Kellyanne, we sure as hell don’t. We never have and we never will. In fact, we’d quite like it if you simply went away and never showed your face in public again.

Here’s Conway whining on Fox and Friends:

WATCH A Democratic Strategist’s Fiery Takedown Of Trump Aide Omarosa Manigault

If you’ve ever seen Democratic strategist Angela Rye on CNN, then you know she isn’t afraid to speak her mind and call it the way she sees it. And that’s exactly what she did during a speech she gave to the National Action Network on Thursday afternoon.

Speaking immediately after former Apprentice contestant Omarosa Manigault, who is now serving as some kind of adviser to the Orange Menace, Rye took the podium and began by saying:

“I’m going to bring the fire right now. Moments ago, we were joined by your president’s apprentice. The truth is, when you tell somebody you’re going to fight for them, I’m going to tell you how not to fight for them.”

With Manigault in full view, Rye continued:

“You don’t fight for them by putting forth a tax reform plan that cuts corporate tax rates but ignores the poor. You don’t fight for them by cutting taxes for the rich, and ensuring that burden is going to be on the backs of the poor and ordinary black and brown people.”

The audience began to roar with applause. But Rye saved the best for last: She took on Trump and his minons for their racist birtherism attacks on former President Obama:

“How you don’t fight for [your community] is by trivializing our first black president, Barack Obama, by questioning his citizenship, by questioning his validity. How you don’t fight for us is by pissing on me and telling me it’s rain.”

And Rye ended with a reminder for what all of us who will never accept Trump as a legitimate president need to do:

“Resist, y’all.”

Hell yes! Thank you, Angela Rye, for saying what millions of us have been thinking ever since Donald Trump appeared on the political scene.

Here’s the speech that brought down the house:

Politics WTF?!

Conway Declares: Those Who Criticize Me Are ‘Unhappy People With Poison Keyboards’

Why exactly does it seem that everyone in the Trump administration is so easily upset by criticism? Could it be that they’re all just thin-skinned like the alleged president, or might it be because they hate that we’re wise to their lies, their endless spinning, and the flood of BS that flows like the Nile River from their mouths?

Senior White House adviser Kellyanne Conway is the latest Trumper to whine about those who say bad things about her, telling Politico:

“This is nothing I ever sought or expected. It’s not as if I said to my children, ‘Mommy is running for governor, or starring in a new film, so attention will intensify and the unhappy people with poison keyboards will get nastier.’”

Then again, Kellyanne, you did choose to become a public figure when you decided to become the campaign manager for a presidential candidate who cannot control his own hateful impulses. As Harry Truman once remarked, “If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.”

In the same Politico article, GOP strategist Rick Wilson, a longtime Trump critic, had this to say about those who have been lured into the Trump team:

“His minions become ancillary stars of the Real Housewives of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Donald Trump’s ego is this singularity, which draws everything into it. The demand for constant attention and media coverage has led people to focus on the minions in the same way.”

Whether you agree with Wilson or not, that’s a very astute observation with a great deal of validity to it.

Conway has brought the majority of the attention she labels as unwarranted on herself. With her constant lies–which she had the audacity to call “alternative facts”–on matters such as the fake Bowling Green Massacre or the size of the crowd at the Trump inauguration, this is a person who has basked in the spotlight. But when it’s accompanied by valid criticism, suddenly she lashes out at those who dare to report what she says.

It’s very simple, Kellyanne: Keep your mouth shut and no one will have ammunition to attack you with. But the second you start talking, you become fair game. Those are the rules of the road.

WATCH Kellyanne Conway Snap At A Reporter For Saying Trump Dislikes A New York Times Writer

Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway has been conspicuously absent from the cable news shows over the past couple of months, perhaps because she became known as being almost as big of a blatant liar as her boss, the alleged president.

But on Tuesday, at an event at the Newseum, Conway was being interviewed by Michael Isikoff when Isikoff asked Conway a question about a reporter for the New York Times:

“I know the president’s views of Maggie Haberman. And yet — why does he speak to her?”

Conway immediately got defensive, replying:

“What do you mean his views of her?”

Isikoff:

“His view of her is he doesn’t like her.”

To that, Conway remarked:

“Why would you say that?”

Using truth to disarm Conway, Isikoff admitted:

“Well, because he’s told me.”

The senior Trump adviser became clearly upset with Isikoff, telling him:

“Michael, I just have to push back. That’s just not true. I think it is inappropriate to say who the president does or does not like, respectfully.

“And you just made my entire point about how he is covered like he is a guy sitting next to you on the bus. He’s the president of the United States.”

So now Conway is telling a reporter that what Trump told him isn’t true? Was she there when the fake president allegedly told Isikoff he didn’t like Maggie Haberman? Keep in mind this is the very same Donald Trump who constantly refers to the New York Times with the pejorative term “failing” before he mentions the actual name of the newspaper. And the Times is not failing at all. Their subscriber base, ad revenues, and stock price are way up since Trump became the so-called head of state.

Apparently Kellyanne Conway is also suggesting that Isiskoff and others in the media need to treat Donald Trump with the respect due the office holds. But respect is earned. And Trump hasn’t done a damn thing yet to earn the respect of anyone.
