Melania Trump Says 'Really Hard Evidence' Is Needed For Sexual Assault Cases

Melania Trump had two big moments this week — her first solo trip as the First Lady and a sit-down interview with Good Morning America.

While on a four-nation trip in Africa (remember when Trump called African nations “s**thole countries?“), Melania sat down with ABC’s Tom Llamas, sharing her thoughts on everything from the #MeToo movement, to her husband’s presidency, and other issues of impact.

Like with the other glimpses we’ve gotten of Melania, we can’t exactly tell how she’s feeling from her words:

“We need to have really hard evidence that if you’re accused of something, show the evidence. I do stand with women, but we need to show the evidence. You cannot 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. It’s not right.”

And that’s not all. She says she stands with women, but also commented during the interview that “we need to support them and also men, not just women.”

Sounds a bit like she’s agreeing with her husband Donald Trump, who said before Brett Kavanaugh‘s Supreme Court confirmation that it is “a very scary time for young men in America.”

She even threw a little shade to organizations she’d apparently like to work with, but don’t want to associate with the Trump “administration.”

“It’s sad to see that organizations and foundations I want to partner with choose not to because of the administration. And I feel like they’re choosing the politics over helping others.”

Hmm, we wonder why they wouldn’t want to be associated with your husband?

Busy Philipps & Ellen DeGeneres Talk Sexual Abuse Experiences

Busy Philipps and Ellen DeGeneres are opening up about experiencing sexual abuse when they were teenagers. 

A week after revealing she was raped at age 14, the Freaks and Geeks alum appeared on Ellen and explained how she was inspired to make the revelation by Dr. Christine Balsley Ford’s testimony against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

She said on Wednesday’s episode:

“It wasn’t something that I felt like I was ever going to blast out on social media. But when I saw her standing there, speaking her truth after 30 years, I was like, ‘It’s been 25 for me. I can do this. We can all do this.’ I feel like it’s a real moment of reckoning for women, that we have sort of collectively carried this burden for so long. And it’s time to share it.”

Ellen couldn’t agree more. In response to Busy’s admission, the daytime queen shared her own experience.

She told the audience:

“I was 15 and I had something happen to me. You just get so angry when someone doesn’t believe you, or [asks], ‘Why did you wait so long?’ It’s because we’re girls and we’re taught not to say anything and go along with it.”

But not anymore. The comedian added:

“This conversation needs to happen more. And people need to teach your children to speak up and don’t ever keep something in and don’t ever be ashamed and think that it’s your problem or your fault.”

For her part, Busy is sharing her truth — along with other “fun Hollywood stories” — in her upcoming memoir, This Will Only Hurt A Little.

Busy’s book comes out October 16, but you can watch a clip of her interview (below).

Watch This British Daytime Host Accidentally Knock Her Assistant Into Liverpool’s Dock

Slippery When Wet!

British Daytime Host Accidentally Knocks Someone Into A Dock!

Need to cool off from the hard news? Let This Morning’s Alison Hammond push you into some viral hilarity.

The hilarious correspondent, best known for making Harrison Ford LOL during her off the rails Blade Runner 2049 interview last year, had a bit of a slip up while giving the weather report on the ITV program’s 30th birthday special.

QUIZ: Which British Royal Would Be Your BFF?

To commemorate the big day, Hammond did the weather from the famous floating map in Liverpool’s Albert Dock — a throwback to when the show was broadcast in Liverpool and would have its forecaster jump between Scotland and Ireland.

Hammond successfully performed the jump without a hitch… until she accidentally knocked one of her hunky assistants into the water! Ha!

Watch the hilarious moment (below):

As Hammond put it, it’s going to be a little wet in Northern Ireland today, y’all!
