Social media explodes over CNN anchor’s condemnation of Melania Trump’s ‘racy’ photos

CNN’s Ashleigh Banfield went there in an interview with Donald Trump‘s spokesperson, asking if the GOP candidate’s wife could be First Lady material due to ‘racy’ photos from her past.

Speaking with national spokeswoman Katrina Pierson on CNN Wednesday, Banfield said Melania Trump was “articulate,” “lovely” and a “very bright woman.” Apparently this was not enough to redeem her, in Banfield’s view, from the fact that the former model has “also done some pretty racy photo spreads in the past. I mean, Maxim magazine style racy photograph spreads.”

Pierson defended Melania, saying she “might be the beauty and the brains behind the organization,” noting that the photos Banfield referred to were from the former model’s past career and had no bearing on her ability to be first lady.

Banfield shared that it would be “hard to get your mind around the First Lady, living in the White House with those photographs out there,” ironically not bothered by the exploits of former President Clinton while at the same address. Pierson’s gracious rebuttal – all with a smile – made it clear the Trump campaign was not concerned with the issue.

“She was a model. That was her career,” she said of Melania.  “She is so strong as a woman and I believe, for myself, is such a role model.”

Reaction on social media was decidedly not in Banfield’s favor.

    At least she didn’t get a man off for raping a 12 year old girl and then brag about it. She is not responsible for Benghazi or White Water or many other things I could list…and all she would be is FLOTUS not POTUS. Racy pictures? I sure haven’t seen any.

      They are digging deep Marilyn. Boy, all that material they could have reported on for seven long horrible years and this is what they consider news? Why am I not surprised?

        Why are their brains in such a mess? I wish we had a magic wand to fix them…poor things, how awful it must seem to have scrambled eggs in place of brains.

          Well that’s what happens when you allow yourself to be turned into a doormat and permit the lib leftist to wipe their feet all over you. No more dignity, little alone a brain to think with. How do they sleep at
          night?

          Do they not understand they and their children are affected by these enemies of liberty just like everyone else? Pretty soon everyone in the food chain gets hit no matter the occupation.

            The generational thing is a puzzle to me, too, but we must remember…there is no fixing stupid.

            I think it’s called “all about them”.

    C’mon man, Maxim Is the GQ of “Skin Mags”, I terminated my Playboy subscription because it went to the Maxim format (no more muffins to look at). I predict that Playboy will soon go to 100 per cent online subscriptions (no more print versions) and then fold entirely. I don’t even consider Maxim to be in the “soft porn” area, just some pretty female air heads with clothes on and dark eye shadow.

    There is nothing more phony than a leftist trying to claim moral high ground. From hypocrisy to their gutter minds, I have yet to meet the leftist who spends their days as a Nun. The feminazi bunch were the only ones cheering with this CNN underhanded attack on Melania Trump in their disgusting attempt to get at Donald Trump. No real man doesn’t want his wife to be a real woman. The combination of her heart, her passion, her compassion, and the draw of her looks are one package. One can make up for the other with one of the combination, but to attempt to degrade her for anyone of them being more or less in her capability is to deny God.

    Class will “out” and I definitely know we will not see Melania “twerking” on the Ellen Degeneres show, as Michelle Obama did. And hearing a past president referred to as “Clinton the Fornicator” along with jokes about his turning a young intern into an Oval Office humidor is disgusting. Two White House families that are the laughing stock of the world. It will take a lot to top them on the “disgraceful” scale.

    I’m sure there’s a home made porno out there that will surface sometime in August

    Pretty sure Banfield has no problem with the muslim mulatto’s history of drug abuse; nor with Moose dressing and acting like a street corner hooker.
