Melania On #MeToo: We Should Support Men, ‘Not Just Women’

Melania on #MeToo: ‘Need to have really hard evidence,’ because ‘sometimes the media goes too far’

First lady Melania Trump minced no words when ABC's Tom Llamas asked how she felt about the ever-evolving #MeToo movement during her solo tour of Africa. "We need to support them and also men, not just women".

"Do you think men in the news that have been accused of sexual assault, sexual harassment have been treated unfairly?" correspondent Tom Llamas asked.

In the interview promoting her documentary "Being Melania - The First Lady", she said she wouldn't name names, but "they know who they are".

The one-on-one special, "Being Melania - The First Lady", airs Friday at 10 p.m. ET on ABC.


First Lady Melania Trump says she stands in support of the women of the #MeToo movement. "We need to support them, and also men, not just women".

"I feel they're choosing the politics over helpings others", Melania Trump said, declining to spotlight any organizations in particular because she doesn't "want to put them out in front of the world". "You can not just say to somebody, 'I was sexually assaulted or you did that to me, ' because sometimes the media goes too far and the way they portray some stories, it's not correct".

Llama boasted Wednesday that "no question was off the table" in the interview, including a question about President Donald Trump's infidelity.

Kavanaugh's former schoolmate Dr Christine Blasey Ford claimed he'd tried to rape her during a house party during the early 1980s, and gave a tearful account of what she says happened to a Senate Judiciary Committee. Kavanaugh denied those, as has Trump.
