Mathew Knowles has opened up on the hypocrisy in judging Michelle Obama for wearing a sleeveless dress that flaunted her bare arms, yet no one said anything when Melania Trump shared a picture of herself in a bikini, posing with a gun.
Beyonce’s dad flaunted a side-by-side pic of her ex-US First Lady Michelle Obama and the present First Lady Melania Trump as he compared both women.
His words, “Oh the hypocrisy of it all! Remember when they made a big deal about Michelle Obama’s bare arms?! And yet it’s ok for Melania Trump to pose in a bikini with a gun?! I’d love to hear your thoughts! Sound off in the comments!”
