These 10 Tweets Sum Up Everything Wrong With GOP Reactions To Trump Sexual Assault Victims
The Ugliness Of Trump Voters To Sexual Assault Survivors
The GOP reaction to Trump’s victims of sexual assault is surprising in its depth of hypocrisy, even for them. After listening to GOP voters gasp and clutch their pearls over Bill Clinton’s extramarital affairs, it’s mind-blowing to watch them dismiss those women who are now coming forward and saying that Donald Trump sexually assaulted them – after a video was released of Donald Trump openly admitting that his fame allows him to grab women by the genitalia at will.
What? You mean that their are women who are saying that Donald Trump did exactly what he said he did? IT MUST BE A GLOBAL CONSPIRACY AND THOSE WOMEN ARE ALL LYING.
Truly, it’s not just mind-blowing. It’s heartbreaking. It reinforces to those millions of women who are survivors of sexual assault that their voices don’t matter. That their stories don’t matter. That their truth doesn’t matter. That they are weak, and that their bodies, souls, lives…they don’t matter.
But there are plenty of people willing to take on the hypocrisy and ugliness of the GOP reactions to Trump’s sexual assault accusations – of which there are many, with probably more on the way, and more yet still who, because of the gross reaction to those who have come forward, may not feel safe enough to add their own voices.
In 140 Characters Or Less
Twitter has taken those hypocrites to task, and eviscerated each weak, disgusting “argument” in 140 characters or less.
TRUMP: Women must be believed when they accuse Bill Clinton of sexual assault
WOMEN: *accuse Trump of sexual assault*
TRUMP: women are liars

Yeah. That pretty much sums it up, doesn’t it.
Have we considered that maybe these dozen women who don’t know each other are all lying because they love national persecution?
— Matt Roller (@rolldiggity) October 13, 2016
Right? These women aren’t coming forward because they think this is somehow going to make their lives better. In fact, it seems as though it has probably made their lives worse.
But they are telling the truth, and that’s important.
The only fake Trump victim is Donald Trump himself.

If you believe him when he says he’s going to Make America Great Again, why don’t you believe him when he says he grabs women by the pussy?
— Jen Statsky (@jenstatsky) October 13, 2016
That’s a hard one to answer, isn’t it, Trump voters?
Who you going to believe, women who claim they were groped, or a man who says he gropes women? It’s a real “he & she both said” situation.
— Charles Demers (@charliedemers) October 13, 2016
Right. As in he said he liked to grab women by the pussy because he’s famous, and then acts completely shocked when women whose pussies he has grabbed come forward and confirm that fact.
Let’s speed the news up, women who HAVEN’T been assaulted by Trump please raise your hand but keep the other hand over your pussy to be safe

Safety first, ladies.
“Weird how all these women waited to come forward until they realized they weren’t alone, it wasn’t their fault, and we might believe them.”
— Matt Blair (@mjblair) October 13, 2016
Women are such flipfloppers. first they’re “not assaulted” but then RIGHT after Trump assaults them they totally change their tune
— Megan Amram (@meganamram) October 14, 2016
Right? So inconsistent.

That seems a hard one for many to grasp, so it needed to be clarified.
Too bad Trump needs America’s consent to become President. #notokay

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is a total mic drop.
