Fury at “racist” cartoon comparing ‘butch’ and ‘masculine’ Michelle Obama to pageant-ready Melania Trump

The Daily Mail

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.

Femi H tweeted: ‘Honestly this is racist as hell and reverts back to stereotypes that black women are angry and masculine.’
