Melania Trump Says #MeToo Accusers ‘Need to Have Really Hard Evidence’

Melania on #MeToo: ‘Need to have really hard evidence,’ because ‘sometimes the media goes too far’

USA first lady Melania Trump talks to media as she visits the ancient statue of Sphinx, with the body of a lion and a human head, at the historic Giza Pyramids site near Cairo, Egypt on Saturday, Oct. 6, 2018.

In the clip released this morning, ABC News's Chief National Affairs Correspondent Tom Llamas was not shown asking the First Lady to specify what she mean by "hard evidence".

"I support the women and they need to be heard", said Trump.

Addressing questions about her support for the #MeToo movement, Melania Trump said, "I do stand with women".

Asked if that means she thinks accused men have been unfairly treated, she said the accused have to provide proof to be believable.

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".

Her remarks come just days after Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed and sworn in after a weeks-long fight that intensified when a letter leaked from a woman claiming Kavanaugh had sexually assaulted her at a drunken high school party. President Trump is pushing the conspiracy theory that Kavanaugh protesters were paid actors, financed by George Soros.
