Hypocrisy Has a New Name

First prize for offensive Facebook comment of the week goes to a minor official in the town of Clay, right smack dab in the middle of West Virginia, Pamela Ramsey Taylor, who changed her status update to say: “It will be so refreshing to have a classy, beautiful, dignified First Lady back in the White House. I’m tired of seeing a Ape in heels.”
The mayor of the town, a woman named Beverly Whaling, commented “Made my day, Pam.”
Both women have since resigned, so at least that.
Now, there are a couple of things glaring wrong with this comment.
First, the criticism of Michelle Obama, who is damned near the definition of a classy lady. I can understand somebody criticizing her husband. Failure to close Guantanamo, failure to end corruption, failure to end the wars in the Middle East, and a host of other failures, but all Michelle’s ever done is to say people should eat more vegetables and exercise. Now, I am not real big on vegetables myself,given a choice between a burger and a salad I will pick the burger every time. And, the most heavily exercised part of my body is my fingers, from constantly sitting on my fat ass and either writing this blog, or posting my own stupid comments on Facebook. But, I don’t hate people just for talking about healthy eating and exercise.
Secondly, it’s so inaccurate. Michelle Obama has a fine, fit figure. So,I guess Pamela Ramsey Taylor is a tad bit racist, because there is no other explanation.
Third, though, is the description of Melania Trump as a “classy, beautiful, dignified lady.” I’ll grant, she’s not bad looking. I don’t think she’s prettier than Michelle, but I also don’t think we should be rating first ladies on their looks. Eleanor Roosevelt does not fare well on that scale and, as far as first ladies having a positive impact, she’s probably #1 in history.
But classy? I don’t think it’s slut shaming to point out the well known fact that she was a nude model, and there are plenty of nude photos of her (some lesbian, nude photos,too)available on the internet. The reason I don’t post them here is because I’m writing this blog in Chrome (Firefox fucked up) and I can’t figure out how to add a photo. Otherwise I would, because I’m kind of sleazy that way.
Also, dignified? The woman is married to Donald fucking Trump for God’s sake. There is plenty of money in that job, and fame, and maybe even some degree of power, but dignity – I don’t think so.
But the most ironic part of all is when you see a photo of Pamela Ramsey Taylor, which is also not hard to find online. Suffice it to say she is not winning any beauty pageants any time soon, not even in Clay, West Virginia.
