Like the old saying … “God Don’t Like Ugly” … Well, keep that in mind as we tell you about the West Virginia woman who once called former FLOTUS, Michellle Obama, an “ape. ”

She’s pleaded GUILTY to defrauding the Federal Emergency Management Agency out of thousands of dollars of disaster benefits.

Yeah, how about that?

This past week, Pamela Taylor, 57, admitted that she falsely registered for more than $18,000 in FEMA disaster benefits after historic flooding in Clay County, West Virginia, in June 2016 that killed 23 people, the U.S. attorney’s office said in a statement.

The story goes that Taylor claimed her primary residence was damaged in the flood and that she was staying in a rental property, the prosecutor’s office said. Here’s the truth: home was not damaged and she still lived there.

The flood was a natural disaster. Stealing from FEMA is a man-made disaster,” Stuart said in a news release. “The floods of June 2016 were historic and devastating to thousands of West Virginians. Lives were lost. Too many of our brothers and sisters lost everything. FEMA dollars are critical but limited. Stealing critical FEMA dollars is a crime – literally and figuratively. Taylor’s fraud scheme diverted disaster benefits from our most desperate and vulnerable, those most in need of help.””

In her plea agreement, Taylor agreed to pay restitution of $18,149.04.

She faces up to 30 years in prison and a fine of up to $500,000 when she is sentenced on May 30.

Taylor who was fired from her job as director of the Clay County Development Corporation after the November 2016 Facebook post, according to the Charleston Gazette-Mail.

Taylor published a controversial post about Obama following Donald Trump’s election as president that said:

“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.”

Well Pamela Taylor, we hope you enjoy “classy, dignified” time in your orange prison-jumpsuit.
