Amber Rose on Melania Trump: ‘She’s Getting Slut Shamed on the Internet’

“I think it’s complete bulls--. I personally don’t think that she asked for this."

By Rahul Lal

For the first time, Loveline with Amber Rose took to Facebook to hold a live show with special guest Kat Von D. As always, Amber was joined by co-host, sex therapist Dr. Chris Donaghue. Among other things, they discussed the election; none of them were happy with the results.

Despite not being a fan of President-elect Trump, Amber wanted to address some of things she’s been seeing and hearing about the future First Lady, Melania Trump. Melania was born in Slovenia and emigrated to America becoming a resident in 2001 and a citizen in 2006. She is a well-known model and was in a relationship with Mr. Trump long before becoming a resident or citizen.

“As much as we don’t like [Melania] Trump, I feel some type of way that she’s constantly getting slut shamed on the internet,” Amber remarked. “I think it’s complete bulls–. Listen, we don’t know Melania like that. I personally don’t think that she asked for this, and she’s kind of just standing by their husband, they have a son together.”

The Trumps got married in 2005 and had a son in 2006. Back then, few would have predicted that the Donald would one day be elected President of the United States. But Amber sees Melania as being a supportive wife above all.

“There are lot of memes going around of Michelle Obama and a lot of other first ladies and then it’s her naked,” she said. “It’s just so f—ed up. She was a professional model. [She had] dope s—, really dope pictures and now she’s [going to be] the First Lady. I don’t think she’s like, ‘Let me pose nude’ [back] in 1990 and then thought about being the First Lady of the United States. It’s just really unfair and I feel like people need to stop slut shaming her for that. It was a long time ago and look at your phone, look at all the nude pictures you’re sending your side pieces and s— and realize that she’s a human being.”

While Amber was defending Melania, she and her co-hosts didn’t have any problems holding back the punches against Donald. They started off the conversation remarking just where they were and what they were doing when they realized the outcome of the election.

Many of the controversial topics of Trump’s platform, such as bans against Muslims and building a wall at the Mexican border, have since been removed from his website. Amber questioned whether he was just saying what voters wanted to hear.

“He’s a sociopath and a narcissist,” Chris responded. “You never know what to expect from someone like that. You never what his thought process is and you never know what to expect from the people working for him pushing such an agenda.”

Chris was very adamant that while it’s tough to tell why those points are no longer on his website, the fact remains that Trump said what he said, and taking them off of his website doesn’t negate the fact that he said them. Also troubling to the hosts and their guest, was the potential choices of politicians for his cabinet as well as his Vice President’s rather primitive thoughts on homosexuality.

“When the whole Trump thing happened,” Kat started. “I’m looking at my social media and of course, the people that I hang out with are pretty like-minded and so everybody is in a state of mourning. We get used to being around people who are more evolved, [and you ask] ‘Is homophobia still a thing? How the f– is that still a thing?’ And then you go to other parts of the country and then you’re like ‘Whoa, there’s really a chance for this ignorance.’ It’s scary.”

Kat was astounded at the number of people who supported the messages that were reverberating through Trump rallies. She was surprised that Trump’s disturbing comments about various races, religions, genders, orientations and other marginalized individuals wasn’t a deal breaker. Chris alluded to this though he knows he isn’t facing the problem as he is a white male.

“That’s the problem with nationalism,” he said. “It’s this false boundary of how far your care and concern for others is going to go. I care about everyone. I have a universal consciousness, I want everyone to have a job and to be fed – not just the people in the United States or in California and so I’m concerned for everyone.”

Kat had a very interesting take on the issues of immigration as she was born in Mexico and immigrated to Los Angeles as a child. She expressed that she’s always been concerned as her mother and other family members still live in Mexico and a wall could make communication and visits tougher. While it’s tough, she has been able to find a bright side through the help of her mom.

“You know what’s awesome though to find the silver lining? Seeing all these amazing protests, people are actually standing up,” Kat said. “I talked to my mom about this and she was the only person who made me feel better about it. I called her like ‘Mom, I want to get the f– out of here’ and she’s like ‘The power is in the people and good people won’t let that happen.’ I think that speaks volumes. These protests aren’t about changing what’s already happening because, obviously, we can’t go back in time but it’s about saying ‘Hey, we’re here and we aren’t going back.’”
