The one good thing about the end of the Obama administration is the fact that the beautiful, highly-accomplished and socially conscious first lady, Michelle Obama, will cease to be object of repulsive objectification and caricature by depraved, debased racists like the cartoonist Ben Garrison.
Garrison is getting serious blow-back for depicting Michelle Obama as a manly figure while juxtaposing her photo with a very attractive, feminine-looking Melania Trump.
The cartoon has been labeled as ‘racist and misogynistic,’ showing a muscular Michelle Obama wearing a green dress with a bulge in the groin area. Standing next to her is a more 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.
