Over the weekend, white supremacist protests in Charlottesville, Virginia shocked the nation and claimed the lives of three Americans.
Among the departed was 32-year-old Heather Heyer who was on hand to peacefully demonstrate against the hate and bigotry ravaging her town.
At first, President Donald Trump failed to renounce the violent actions of the KKK members and neo-Nazis who turned out in force for the Charlottesville protests.
When he did speak out against their hate crimes, Trump's words seemed coerced, half-hearted, and insincere.
As a result, many were not surprised last night when Trump reverted back to his original position, insisting that "both sides" were responsible for the Charlottesville tragedy, including members of what he called "the alt-left."
Having clicked on an article about Paris Hilton, you might be wondering what all of this has to do with the hotel heiress and sex tape star who gave us the memorable catchphrase "that's hot."
Well, as you may already know Paris has been a Trump supporter for quite some time.
And it seems recent events have done nothing to sway her from that position.
“I’ve known him since I was a little girl. And he's always been so nice, so respectful and sweet,” the 36-year-old told Marie Claire.
Asked about the decidedly non-respectful comments Trump made to Billy Bush in the now-infamous "grab 'em by the p--sy tapes," Paris had this to say:
”I’ve heard guys say the craziest things ever, because I'm always around guys, and I listen to them speak.”
Answering a question about the many women who have accused Trump of sexual assault, Paris gave a repugnant response that shall henceforth be known as the Cosby Defense.
”I think that they are just trying to get attention and get fame," she said of the alleged victims.
Yes, it seems Paris Hilton is one of those people who could watch Trump gun someone down on Fifth Avenue, and declare, "That's hot."
Now, to be fair, the interview was published today, but we don't know when it took place.
Paris' comments may have come before the events in Charlottesville, and she may have changed her position on Trump since.
But if that's the case, she has yet to clarify it.
In fact, she's made no public comment about the events in Charlottesville.
She's under no obligation to do so, but we think it's safe to say she wasn't profoundly affected by the violence, and her political stance is likely the same as it was last week.
Paris has plugged her Marie Claire interview on multiple social media platforms, but has consistently ignored follow-up questions about her love of Trump.
But hey, this is a celebrity gossip site, and you came here to have a chuckle at the world's most clueless heiress, not dwell on the sad state of our nation.
So here's a nugget to leave you smiling.
It seems that Paris believes were it not for her sex tape with Rick Salomon, she'd be regarded as America's uber-classy answer to Princess Di. No, seriously:
“It's really hurtful, because my whole life I really looked up to Princess Diana, all these elegant, amazing women, and I feel like [Salomon] just took that all away from me," she says.
"I could have been like that, but because of that tape, I will always be judged and thought of as whatever they say about me because of a private moment between my boyfriend and me.
Leaking a sex tape without consent is never funny.
But Paris comparing herself to Princess Di - that's just downright hilarious.
