West Va. Official Who Called Michelle Obama an “Ape in Heels” Gets Re-Hired

The woman above is Mayor Beverly Whaling, she stepped down after co-signing the ape in heels comment, but the woman who actually posted it is getting her job back.

The director of a state and federal-funded nonprofit in West Virginia will return to work after she was temporarily removed from her job for calling first lady Michelle Obama an “ape in heels,” the Charleston Gazette-Mail reported.










Following Donald Trump’s presidential victory, Clay County Development Corp. Director Pamela Ramsey Taylor posted to Facebook, “It will be refreshing to have a classy, beautiful, dignified First Lady in the White House. I’m tired of seeing a Ape in heels.”

Rather than condemn Taylor’s racist comment, Clay Mayor Beverly Whaling replied, “Just made my day Pam.” Whaling later stepped down from her post.

Not surprising this is West Virginia.
