Viral Video Shows How Fox News Treats Melania Trump Vs. How They Treated Michelle Obama
The news outlet NowThis has attracted attention with a video that has now gone viral that illustrates the inconsistencies by Fox News personalities that contrasts the news network’s treatment of Michelle Obama with her successor as first lady, Melania Trump.
Clips show Fox commentators criticizing Michelle Obama’s wardrobe, saying she needed to drop a few pounds and calling her the “merchant of death.”
Meanwhile, Melania Trump is called stunning, spectacular and “a woman of strength who should be revered.”
Back-to-back clips show Fox’s Dana Perino suggesting that Michelle Obama gets a pass from criticism and, at another point, saying “she’s carrying a bag that costs $1,200 and nobody said a thing.”

“You can’t dispute video when you see the hypocrisy very directly,” said Athan Stephanopoulos, NowThis’ president.
Fox, for its part, pointed out that NowThis was founded by two men who worked on the Huffington Post, which the network regards as a liberal publication that opposes it.

That's a damn shame that they had the nerve to disrespect her like that , especially that old piece of dump to say that she needs to loose weight.

Fox is sickening. Most of the Clothing Michelle wore was given to her by the designers because she exudes class. Mail order prostitute gold digging nude model tacky cathy Melania has zero class.
