(Liberal America) – As reported by Liberal America; author, podcaster and gay-rights advocate Dan Savage has no sympathy for First Lady Melania Trump and neither should anyone else, especially Liberals.

Dan Savage explains why she deserves it, but he really shouldn’t have to.

What claim to morality do we have when solvable suffering exists? How can we claim any amount of decency when decent society is often dismissed as Utopian? Continue reading
In keeping with the theme of division put forth by President Trump in his Inaugural Address, Atlantic County Freeholder, John Carman, chose to use social media to spread a meme aimed at belittling women rather than to unite constituents and assuage the fear of those who do not feel like they are represented by the new administration.
