The president of the United States just smacked every sexual assault survivor in the face on Twitter and did so proudly and with glee at his success in doing so. If it wasn’t bad enough for everyone who has lived through sexual assault to see an admitted sexual abuser in the White House, the country is now one step closer to having a second sexual abuser on the Supreme Court.

To be clear, Kavanaugh has not yet been voted onto the highest court in the land. That vote will come on Saturday. However, weeks of survivors telling their stories and relating their own experiences to that of Kavanaugh’s accuser, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s, has not swayed the president, nor does he seem to have any concern for their feelings today while he racks up another win for himself and his presidency.

One Republican, Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and one Democrat, Joe Manchin (D-WV), were surprises in the vote to advance Kavanaugh’s nomination. Susan Collins (R-ME) has not yet made statements about what her final vote will be and is expected to do so at 2:30 PM EST.

Trump has not yet won anything and neither has Kavanaugh, but survivors of sexual assault lost much on Friday after bravely coming forward to tell their stories and speak their truths. Once again, a powerful man will likely end up being believed over a woman with absolutely nothing to gain by coming forward. This time, that powerful man isn’t Trump himself, but his SCOTUS nominee.

Twitter was disgusted by Trump’s glee. Read some of their comments below:
