Trump Supporters Call Michelle Obama ‘Monkey’ and ‘Tranny’ After Photo Shoot

News

Michelle Obama will no doubt go down in history as one of the most popular first ladies in U.S. history. In fact, she’s more popular than her husband as well as both candidates currently running for president:

“The first lady’s popularity rating, 64 percent in August, beats out both her husband’s (52 percent in August ), Clinton’s (38 percent during the first week of September), and Trump’s (34 percent during the same period), according to Gallup, the research and polling firm.”

Obama is widely seen by the public as authentic and approachable. She stole the show at the Democratic National Convention in July with her speech that was so powerful, it helped unite the party after leaked DNC emails revealed favoritism toward Clinton. She also has extraordinary appeal and an amazing sense of humor.

Yet despite the fact that she’s a national treasure, there will always be bigots and racists who will go after the first lady simply because of the color of her skin. After being featured in InStyle magazine and then doing an elegant photo shoot along with her interview, the lovely photos still managed to get the racists out of the woodwork and many of them were naturally Trump supporters. Here is a disgusting example:

The meme refers to the first lady as “MOUCHELLE.”
Here are screenshots of comments by individuals who now feel they can make such disgusting statements as a result of the rise of Trump and the normalization of hate rhetoric:

Then there are these comments which imply that Michelle is a transgender male:

While we know that the country has racists and bigots, they seem to be walking around with a swagger that hasn’t existed since the 1950’s. Trump’s rhetoric has given these people confidence to openly make such horrid statements. It’s one of the most dangerous consequences of Trump’s rise. We don’t want to imagine what these racists will do if he becomes president.
