Actor Michael Rapaport has fired yet another shot, a rather cheap one this time, at Melania Trump. Posting a racy photograph of the current FLOTUS from her modeling days, he wished her on Mother's Day. Now, Rapport has been very critical of the President and the first lady and has often used sexists topics to target Melania Trump. Posting the image of a scantily-clad Melania, he tweeted: HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!!! I hope you’re a better Mother than you are First Lady, you’re useless as a First Lady, literally. This was accompanied by a hashtag #Milfs, which means Mothers I'd like to F*ck. The crude comment of the True Romance actor didn't go unnoticed by the conservatives who were immediately triggered to hit the comedian with a barrage of abuse.
Defending the FLOTUS, user Kristen Taylor shared: Everybody has a past, Melania rose above hers. She's intelligent, highly educated, gracious, and kind. She's also beautiful and would be a style icon if the left didn't hate her husband so viciously. User Carmine Sabia delivered a stinging message to the actor, writing: Imagine what it has to be like to be this man and look in the mirror every day and see a face that looks like decades of drug abuse and bad genetics. Then you will comprehend why he is furious. While Tommy Macy argued that such sexism might have been acceptable on other days.
What a sad excuse for a man. Of all messages you could use your platform to send on mother's day, you take shots at out first lady. A woman who has done no wrong to you, but is constantly bullied by elitists like yourself.— Burgess Owens (@BurgessOwens) May 10, 2020
That was over the line on Mother's Day. Just because you can get away with it doesn't mean you should do it. Really cruel and tasteless. I'm a fan but I'm not numb to others' feelings, Mike. You could have chosen from 364 other days to post that, they wrote. Although conservatives make a great point about Rapaport's comment crossing a line, it's hard to agree with them on everything, especially because they support Donal Trump who has been accused of sexual misconduct, including sexual assault and rape by at least 43 women. This naturally makes it hard for us to see them as the flag bearers of 'family values.'
It's not the first time that the Friends star has targetted Melania Trump. Just last month, the actor, who often goes into expletive-laden rants against the President on Twitter, uploaded an image of the couple with Trump's arms wrapped around the first lady with the caption: Just a reminder, a hooker, and a con man are running America. He shared the post writing: NEVER FORGET. Following the COVID-19 pandemic, Rapaport has become increasingly vocal against the President over his inadequate handling of the outbreak. The Atypical actor also accused Trump of using Americans as "guinea pigs" just so he could get re-elected in November. This came as a response to the President's claims that it was time to reopen the U.S. economy and get back to work despite the dire situation.
In a 1-minute clip, the 50-year-old actor slammed the President for repeatedly calling for the economy to reopen amid the health crisis. The actor then asked Trump to send his children to work during the pandemic. "F— pig, the real people want to get back to work ASAP? You never worked a f—ing day in your life," he said in the video. "You are the worst possible motherf—er we can have in power making decisions right now. The real people want to get back to work? Why don’t you send your f—ing son, d*** stain Donald Trump Jr., big-toothed Eric Trump, little f—ing Barron, f—ing Ivanka, junkyard Jared… let them go out there and test the f—ing waters. Let them see if s*** is sweet. Let them take the cars, the trains, the buses, the amtracs. Let them play in the park, and if everything's good, after five days of them playing out in the streets, we'll all go back," he added. The video came at a time when there were 22,000 deaths recorded in America, now the number peaks over a staggering 81,000 and Trump seems to say the same thing, calling for the opening of the economy.
President Trump acknowledged on Sunday night that the coronavirus pandemic in the U.S. has been deadlier than he had previously predicted, even as he pressed states to reopen the economy https://t.co/k4CnF8GWUx— The New York Times (@nytimes) May 4, 2020
