Rush Limbaugh believes the publication of Melania Trump's nude photographs "might wrap up the LGBT vote" for Donald.
On his radio show, the conservative radio host speculated on the impact of the New York Post's Monday cover, which showed the wife of the Republican presidential candidate in a nude embrace with another female model. The photographs, which were leaked to the press, were taken over two decades ago for the French magazine Max.
“Have you seen, by the way, the New York Post again with nude photos of Melania Trump?" Limbaugh said of the "girl-on-girl" images. "I think this probably might wrap up the LGBT vote for Trump."
Limbaugh was hazy as to why the photographs would persuade LGBT people to rally behind the Republican candidate, whose party's platform is the most anti-LGBT in its history. The Advocate recently reviewed how their republication is part of a long tradition of homophobia being used as a smear tactic for those in the public eye — an attack that might make LGBT voters more sympathetic to Melania.
However, Limbaugh, by saying they would lock in the "no-college-educated, white male vote," is also referencing the power of sexual attraction to change hearts and minds. He also speculated that the photographs would make the Trumps more "relatable," as they were the latest in another tradition of celebrities leaking nudes to gain the spotlight and humanize themselves to the public.
"Isn’t this the kind of stuff that makes people big stars today on Twitter and Facebook, TMZ?" Limbaugh questioned. "I mean, this is just the Kardashians."
