Irony is defined as a figure of speech in which words are used in such a way that their intended meaning is different from the actual meaning of the words used.
Or in Michelle Duggar’s case, it’s calling transgender people “child predators” when her own son has admitted to molesting very young girls.
A 2012 call recorded by the Duggar matriarch has people calling her the worse kind of hypocrite.
In the voice recording, the 19 Kids and Counting mother states that she’s calling to bring attention to a bill that would allow transgender people the right to use the bathroom they want to use according to their gender identity.
“I don’t believe the citizens of Fayetteville would want males with past child predator convictions that claim they are female to have a legal right to enter private areas that are reserved for women and girls,” Duggar says.

She further exhorted parents to stand against a law that would “endanger their daughters or allow them to be traumatized by a man joining them in their private space.”

No one knows if Michelle has even considered the trauma her own daughters might be carrying after being allegedly molested by one of their own siblings when she made these statements.
Countless people have already taken to Twitter to lambast the 47-year-old mother for her hypocritical comments and close minded, intolerant views.
However, this is just another controversy the conservative and traditional Duggar parents are facing now that the harsh glare of the spotlight is shining on them.
A Radar Online article claims that the police report that contains Josh’s admission of molesting 5 young girls also includes information on how the Duggar parents use corporal punishment.
According to the report, an investigator asked one victim about being spanked. The victim admitted that “they have a rod” and that Jim Bob and Michelle used this on “all of the children.”
