A week after saying he hates first lady Melania Trump — and calling her “as ugly on the inside as she is pretty on the outside” — sex columnist and anti-bullying advocate Dan Savage laughed off the idea that he had bullied the first lady.
He also added a new accusation that the first lady is “winking at anti-Semitism.”
Savage, who is also an author and executive producer of ABC’s “The Real O’Neals,” said on his “Savage Love” podcast Tuesday that he may have gone too far in saying last week that he hates Melania Trump, but added that he does hate or strongly dislike things she’s done.
Savage enraged critics when called Melania Trump a plagiarist birther who has used lawsuits to silence critics. On Tuesday, he played angry voicemails from people who defended the first lady by insulting Savage’s looks, using homophobic insults or accusing him of bullying.
