The fake news media tried to corner Melania Trump into undermining President Trump and Justice Kavanaugh.
While traveling in Africa, Melania was asked if she supports the #MeToo movement.
But she shot down their “gotcha” question with these five words.
Melania Trump sat down with ABC News for an exclusive, wide-ranging interview.
That’s when ABC asked, “What is your take about the #MeToo movement though? Do you believe in them? Do you support the #MeToo movement?”
They framed the question around the Democrats’ failed smear campaign of Justice Kavanaugh and President Trump’s admission that he’s had “many false accusations” made against him.
But Melania refused to take the bait.
“I support the women, and they need to be heard. We need to support them. And also men, not just women,” the first lady said. “You need to have a really hard evidence that if you are accused of something, show the evidence.”
ABC doubled-down, saying, “Someone might here that and say, ‘How could you say that Mrs. Trump? You need to stand with women.’ What would you say?”
That’s when Melania shut them down.
“I do stand with women.”
And she went on to call out the media for spreading fake news.
“But,” she added, “We need to show the evidence. You cannot just say to somebody, I was sexually assaulted or you did that to me because sometimes the media goes too far, the way they portray some stories, it’s not correct, it’s not right,” she said.
Sometimes the media goes too far . . .
Like with the shoddy “reporting” trying to convict Justice Kavanaugh in the court of public opinion before he even had a chance to publicly defend himself.
American media needs to do some soul searching after their embarrassing coverage of the Kavanaugh confirmation.
Instead of rushing to convict Kavanaugh based on nothing more than their own liberal, anti-Trump bias, maybe the media ought to do things like ask for corroborating evidence.
