While Melania Trump says she fully supports and believes the #MeToo movement women, she considers the same thing should be done as far as the men a.k.a. the perpetrators are concerned. Here’s what she had to say!
In an excerpt from her upcoming ABC interview, the First Lady declares that ‘I support the women and they do need to be heard. We need to support them but also men, not just women.’
When Tom Llamas asked Melania if she really is on the women accusing powerful men of sexual assault and harassment’s side, she did say yes but also said something very obvious, which seems to suggest she doesn’t believe a huge part of the accusations are true.
‘I do stand with women, but we need to show the evidence. We need to have very hard evidence that you know, that if you’re accused of something, show the evidence. You can’t just say to somebody, I was, you know, sexually assaulted, or you did this to me, because sometimes the media goes way too far, and the way they portray some stories, it is not correct, it is not right,’ Melania explained.

Obviously! But while evidence of sexual misconduct, especially if it happened in the past and by someone with a lot of power, is very hard to prove, when someone is accused by more than 20 women (like her husband) it is safe to say there is very little room to doubt the accusers.
Still, even the safe comment the FLOTUS made may not sit too well with Donald Trump who’s mocked the victims many times and slammed the movement just as often.
