Supermodel Stands Up For Melania Trump Following Reporter’s Repulsive Comments About Her

“There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other!” former secretary of state Madeleine Albright said during the presidential campaign. Of course, Ms. Albright was referring to women who didn't vote for Hillary Clinton in the primaries against Bernie Sanders. She and many other Democrats have been remaining very quiet, however, when it comes to helping out other women who happen to be on the opposite side of the political aisle. One super model stood above the rest, however, when she called out a reporter for slut-shaming Melania Trump.

Emily Ratajkowski was angered when a New York Times reporter made a sexist comment about the First Lady during an event on Sunday Night. The super model sat next to the journalist, who turned to her and said that 'Melania is a hooker.'

Ratajkowski took to twitter to vent and make a point. Her message was loud and clear: politics aside, that kind of remark is uncalled for.

"Sat next to a journalist from the NYT last night who told me ‘Melania is a hooker.’ Whatever your politics it’s crucial to call this out for what it is: slut shaming... I don’t care about her nudes or sexual history and no one should,” Ratajkowski said in a series of tweets.

"Gender specific attacks are disgusting sexist bulls--t," the model later added.

Few women who call for standing up for all women have stood up to defend Melania Trump, Ivanka Trump or any conservative women. The implied sentiment seems to be that women who lean towards certain political opinions are part of the problem rather than part of the solution, and as such they somehow deserve personal attacks that have nothing to do with politics.

That's a little like saying a woman who is sexually harassed or raped was asking for it because she went out in a skimpy outfit.

These kinds of attacks on the First Lady, a former model, are nothing new. She's filed lawsuits against publications who last fall spread the unfounded rumor that she was a high-priced, high-class call girl before marrying President Trump.
