On his show yesterday, conservative radio host Michael Savage criticized the media’s coverage of Melania Trump’s plagiarized Republican National Convention speech and claimed that Trump threatens Hillary Clinton’s campaign because Clinton “looks like Stalin’s housekeeper” while Trump is “a movie star” who can “garner a good percentage of Hillary’s woman vote.”
“Creatures that are smaller than marsupials, they have names like Anderson Cooper, Wolf Blinky Blitzer, they’re the small creatures underneath the leaf droppings of the jungle floor,” Savage said. “Instead of focusing today on all of the damage around the world done by the Obamas, instead they’re focusing on a speech given by the newest first lady to appear on the stage, as fresh as Jackie O on her first appearance.”
“You know, she’s so appealing that she’s liable to garner a good percentage of Hillary’s woman vote simply because she’s so appealing,” Savage said. “Now, regarding Melania’s speech, yes, there’s some overlap, but that’s of course not the issue.”
Savage repeated the bogus Trump campaign allegation that Clinton’s campaign was behind the plagiarism charges:
The issue is that she is so appealing that the Hillary Clinton camp went insane fearing that Melania has, in fact, captured the attention of the women of America who don’t like Hillary very much. Hillary is not attractive. Hillary is unattractive. This is a country that lives on movie stars. Melania’s a movie star, Hillary looks like a maid. She looks like Stalin’s housekeeper gussied up, that’s number one. And number two, of course, the reason the creatures underneath the leaf droppings of the jungle floor called the media are obscuring, doing this is to obscure all the problems that Hillary has created. Have you forgotten the email scandal? Have you forgotten Benghazi? Have you forgotten the Clinton Foundation cash scam? Somehow that didn’t make it to the geniuses who are worried about a few lines of overlap from a speech that Moo-chelle Obama gave a number of years ago, which she lifted from someone else.
“Stalin’s housekeeper” is apparently a favorite misogynist insult of Savage’s; he used the same description for Bernie Sanders’ wife, Jane O’Meara Sanders.
