Pretty sure I'm not allowed to link to the article.

What do you all think about that? (After you boys stop drooling, that is...)

Pretty sure that if that had been Michelle Obama, her husband never would have even been nominated.

Girl on girl action, no less.

Let me guess. Ted Cruz released them?

Are you kidding me? The faux-outrage from the blue-nosed, prudish joy-extinguishers on the right would have been deafening.

Social conservatives are queens of manufactured outrage and false narrative.

I do not know a whole lot about the story, but if she did not give her permission for them to be published(I think she did not?), then it is an incredibly low class move to publish them.

Damn right there would be outrage, who wants to see Michelle's penis?

Knowing Trump, he's probably thrilled that those photos were published. He likes having a trophy wife and wants everyone to see her as such.

She apparently did a lot of nude shots in her younger days and from my understanding, she signed away her rights to these pictures.

So? They didn't vote Obama anyway.

She doesn't own the rights to them from what I heard. She doesn't have to give permission for them to be published.

If you don't want naked pictures of yourself being published, don't take them...but if you really can't help yourself, at least don't let someone else pay you money in exchange for doing the shoot.

Melania Trump had a career as a model before she married the Donald. It's not the least bit surprising that there are nudes of her out on the web. When these were taken she wasn't even with Trump so the whole point of their publication can be nothing other than trying to sell a few more copies the paper. It really isn't the first time a publication has relied on boobs to stimulate circulation and it certainly won't be the last.

From a purely critical standpoint, the photographer had great material to work with but managed to strip all the emotion out of his images. The shadow play was just flat out boring. When you've got a hot model it's best to strive for something that couldn't be achieved just as easily with a potted plant.

Did you know that "legal" and "ethical" are two entirely different concepts?

Why shouldn't it be allowed. Her pictures are all over the Internet. She needn't be ashamed of them.

Donald Trump promises to crack down on pornography if elected president...


"...While some think the move could win Trump the support of more conservatives, others see the signature as out of character for a man who has posed on the cover of Playboy, put a strip club in his Atlantic City casino, and is married to woman who has posed nude with another woman on a magazine cover...."

I'll bet money he doesn't think the nude photos of his wife are pornographic.

A nation that wants to prosper will try to keep law and ethics as synchronised as possible.

What Trump’s pledge entails
The five-point pledge calls for Trump and any other signee to agree to “aggressively enforce” existing federal laws to prevent the sexual exploitation of children online, including appointing an Attorney General who will make prosecuting those laws a “top priority.”

Other points include “serious consideration” of a Presidential Commission to examine the “harmful public impact of Internet pornography on youth, families, and the American culture.” Finally, the pledge commits to establishing corporate partnerships to implement viable technology tools and solutions to reduce the exploitation of children online.

Double standards.

What do you think about the NY Post publishing these pics? Or having a potential First Lady having nude modeling pics?

So nude photos of women in seductive and titillating poses aren't considered pornographic, anymore??
