Anti-bullying author and prominent LGBT activist Dan Savage declared during his podcast Tuesday that first lady Melania Trump “is as ugly on the inside as she is pretty on the outside” for quietly supporting her husband’s policies.

“I f—ing hate Melania Trump,” Mr. Savage, co-founder of the It Gets Better project, said at the top of his “Savage Lovecast” podcast, The Wrap first reported.

“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,” he continued. “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.”

Mr. Savage said the left’s sympathy toward Mrs. Trump is unwarranted and stems from the flawed notion that “the insides of pretty people match the outsides of pretty people.”

“It’s definitely not true in this case,” he 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— about the plight of other immigrants. She’s famously a plagiarist. And she’s brought ruinous lawsuits against journalists and bloggers accusing them, amongst other things, of potentially interfering with her ability to profit off her role as first lady.



“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 f—ing fast if Michelle Obama had said the same during her husband’s presidency,” he added.

Mr. Savage also slammed Mrs. Trump for recently visiting a children’s hospital in D.C. while her husband and congressional Republicans work to repeal Obamacare.

Mr. Savage was panned by conservative media sites for his harsh criticism of the first lady, but he made it clear on Twitter Wednesday that he stands by his words.

He also proudly retweeted a Fox News article titled, “Lowlife Dan Savage Calls Melania Trump ‘Ugly on the Inside.’”

According to a new CNN poll, the first lady’s favorability rating is up 16 points since President Trump was sworn in.
