APE IN HEELS STORM

A firestorm over racist comments about Michelle Obama has claimed the mayor of a tiny West Virginia town who has resigned.

Mayor Beverly Whaling, who had commented approvingly on a Facebook post comparing the first lady to an ape, turned in her letter of resignation Tuesday.

After Donald Trump’s election as president, Pamela Ramsey Taylor, director of the Clay County Development Corp., took to social media to comment on the upcoming shift from Obama to Melania Trump, writing: “It will be so refreshing to have a classy, beautiful, dignified First Lady back in the White House.”

She added: “I’m tired of seeing a Ape in heels.” NBC affiliate WSAZ reported that Whaling, the mayor, then replied, “Just made my day Pam.”
