A cartoonist by the name of Ben Garrison , has been accused of racism after he portrayed Michelle Obama as masculine and butch next to a pageant-ready Melania Trump in a controversial drawing.
Honestly, I am happy that he made Michelle Obama masculine. In a world ran by men, it was great to have a first lady that took charge of things, and made herself present by actually empowering and doing stuff to make the world a better place. I am happy she didn’t just walk around and just look cute. She stood for something. So if that makes her a butch, so be it. Melania Trump has a huge shoe to fill. Beauty is not everything, hopefully she has a brain too!
According to daily mail, the cartoon – which has been branded ‘racist and misogynistic’ – shows a muscular Mrs Obama wearing a green dress with a bulge in the groin area.
Stood next to her is a feminine, smiling Melania Trump in a pink dress and holding a Trump sign.
The artist Ben Garrison tweeted the picture on Friday with the caption: ‘#InTrumpsAmerica The #FirstLady will be Great Again! #Trump2016.’
Twitter reacted with fury to the drawing, with dozens of people defending the First Lady.
My favorite tweet was from Marcus Wesson who wrote: ‘A Princeton and Harvard Law School educated lawyer vs. a Slovenia high-school dropout turned model/goldigger. #yeahright’
