President Donald Trump went to the United Nations General Assembly meeting on Monday, and by Tuesday morning had embarrassed himself and the country so badly, the rest of the diplomats and world leaders in attendance were openly laughing at him during his speech. Perhaps even more humiliating for the U.S. was his comments following that speech during a press conference in which he attacked women coming forward to report sexual assault.
Dismissing new allegation against Brett Kavanaugh, Pres. Trump says Democrats are playing "a con game."
— ABC News (@ABC) September 25, 2018
Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court, Brett Kavanaugh, now faces multiple credible allegations of sexual assault during his high school and college days just as Trump did in 2016 when he was still elected president by people who didn’t care. For a few days, quite surprisingly, Trump managed to toe the line and not once again prove his utter inability to represent women as president, but that ended with his tweets announcing that Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, Kavanaugh’s first accuser, was not a real victim because she didn’t report the assault to police. Two-thirds of all sexual assaults go unreported every year.
Now, he’s moved on to attacking the second accuser, Deborah Ramirez.
‘The second accuser doesn’t even know, she thinks maybe it could have been him, maybe not. Admits she was drunk.’
This is untrue. Ramirez has never wavered on who her attacker was and her story has never changed. Trump went on to attack Democrats for the accusations, insisting that some con game was being waged by the left.
‘I think it’s horrible what the Democrats have done. It is a con game, they are really con artists. They are trying to convince – they don’t bite, they don’t believe it themselves – they know he is a high-quality person, they don’t believe it, it is just resist and obstruct.’
While he was doing what he always does, casting doubt on every story by blaming someone his supporters vehemently dislikes, which is daily interchangeable between Hillary Clinton, President Obama, the FBI, the Deep State, the DOJ, the Democrats, James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Robert Mueller, the media, Rod Rosenstein, and Jeff Sessions. For the two women who have come forward, it is horrifying that they are now being lumped into that list, as well.
For survivors across the country, it is even more horrifying to know that they’ll face the same treatment should they ever decide to break their silence.
Twitter did not miss the irony in Trump calling anyone else a “con artist.” Read some of their responses below:
