First Lady Melania Trump discussed the #MeToo movement during her first solo trip to Africa, where she sat down with ABC for an exclusive interview.
Her comment was “I support the women, and they need to be heard. We need to support them and also men, not just women.” When asked if men in the news who have been accused of sexual assault have been treated unfairly, she responded, “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 and the way they portray some stories, it’s not correct. It’s not right.”
This was all promoted by the recent allegations against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, who has been publicly accused of sexual assault by several women, and recent comment made by her husband, President Donald Trump, who said “it is a very scary time for young men in America,” which is up for debate really, isn’t it.
