The nude photos of Melania Trump published by The New York Post on Sunday could end up helping her husband’s presidential campaign.
Rush Limbaugh, Republican radio host, alleged that Melania Trump’s nude photos may be a blessing in disguise as they may swing over support from the LGBTQ sector for Donald Trump’s candidacy.

“Today these are, what would you call, girl-on-girl I think is the — nude girl-on-girl photos with Melania and other women,” he said. “I think this probably might wrap up the LGBTQ vote for Trump,” he said. “You never know how these things are seen. You never know.”
Aside from the LGBTQ,Limbaugh added that the “single, white male vote” or those who are not “college-educated” will be a lock for Donald Trump due to the sexy Melania Trump photos.
The controversial radio show host likened the photos to the sex video scandal that launched the careers of Kim Kardashian and her sisters.
Indeed, Donald Trump needs all the edge he can get considering that Hillary Clinton is gaining momentum after securing the endorsement of Sen. Bernie Sanders and Barack Obama.
Her numbers are surging even with the scandal surrounding her use of a private email server to secure correspondence while still with the Department of State.
The FBI’s decision not to indict Hillary Clinton prompted Donald Trump to call on Russian hackers to find the former state secretary’s secret emails. He later recanted his statements, claiming that he was being sarcastic.
In the latest CNN poll, Hillary Clinton led Donald Trump by nine percentage points in a head-to-head bout. More concerning for the former The Apprentice host is that the number of American voters who think that the former First Lady is the best choice rose from 43 percent to 48.

Also, the report claimed that most of Hillary Clinton’s supporters are not a result of a protest vote against the candidacy of Donald Trump, but rather a result of confidence in her ability to lead the nation.
The nude photos of Melania Trump were taken by French photographer Alé de Basseville back in 1995 for a French adult magazine.
Jason Miller, Donald Trump’s campaign spokesperson, was quick to dismiss the photos during a guest appearance on CNN’s Reliable Sources.
“They’re a celebration of the human body as art,” he said. “There’s nothing to be embarrassed about. She’s a beautiful woman.”
This was not the first time that Melania Trump was dragged into the muck in what has become a very ugly presidential campaign from both sides.
Last month, Donald Trump’s campaign was hit by the report that Melania Trump’s speech contained excerpts stolen from a speech by Michelle Obama.
It was truly an honor to introduce my wife, Melania. Her speech and demeanor were absolutely incredible. Very proud! #GOPConvention

The speechwriter for the former model immediately came forward to apologize for the snafu.
Meredith McIver wrote a letter explaining the circumstances behind the plagiarism charges. She said the fault was hers alone after failing to realize that she wrote some of the passages that Melania Trump read to her over the phone, and included them in the final draft.
“I wrote them down and later included some of the phrasing in the draft that ultimately became the final speech,” McIver said, adding that she offered to resign immediately after putting Melania Trump on the spot. However, her resignation letter was rejected by Donald Trump, who apparently told her that everybody makes mistakes.
Melania Trump is Donald Trump’s third wife whom she married 11 years ago. The GOP presidential candidate was previously married to Ivana Zelníčková and Marla Maples.
