This cartoon is melting the internet — and those who are fans of Michelle Obama are not happy about it one bit. Do you think that this is racist? Or do you think that it is hilarious and true? Leave your thoughts in the comment section below!
Here’s the Daily Mail’s take on it:
A cartoonist 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.
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.
