First Lady Melania Trump sat down with ABC’s Tom Llamas where she was asked to share her thoughts and feelings on the #MeToo movement while on a solo tour in Africa. She did not hold back either.
Trump went to bat for both men and women, speaking out against the sensationalism surrounding the movement by the media when discussing delicate issues like this one.
She’s a true class act, folks.
Llamas asked, “What is your take about the #MeToo movement … do you believe in [the women], do you support the #MeToo movement?”
Trump responded that she does support the women behind the #MeToo movement — but noted that she supports men, too.Trending:
“I support the women, and they need to be heard,” Trump began. “We need to support them.
“And also, you know, also men. Not just women,” she addedAdvertisement - story continues below
Llamas responded by asking if Trump felt that men accused have been treated unfairly as a result of the #MeToo movement.
“We need to have really hard evidence that, you know, that if you are accused of something, show the evidence,” she answered.
Llamas said that some people might take the first lady’s statement to mean that she doesn’t actually support women.
Trump fired back, “I do stand with women. But 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 in the way they portray some stories. It’s not correct. It’s not right.”
The one-on-one special is due to air this Friday night at 10 p.m. on ABC.
Here’s a short preview of the interview:

The First Lady knocked this out of the park.
We have one of the greatest legal systems in the entire world, and while that certainly doesn’t mean it’s perfect — it’s far from it actually, with lots of room for improvement — we ought to be thankful for it and work as hard as possible to defend it and keep it intact.
Here, in America, we’re innocent until proven guilty. The word “proven” is what liberals are seemingly having a difficult time understanding. Allegations against another human being have to have proof other than “he said, she said” statements before a person can be convicted of a crime. This is to protect folks from false allegations that can destroy lives.
It’s based on the biblical principle of not bearing false witness and is a part of the natural law that governs the human heart. It’s a universal truth that must be defended at all cost.
Let’s hope more people start studying this issue for themselves and see the reality of why it’s a great thing that Kavanaugh was cleared by the FBI.
