Uh oh. Donald Trump and his son have finally realized that men are having to face the consequences of their actions. What a bummer, right?
Both Don and Don Jr. have found the recent sexual assault statements against SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh to be highly disturbing. Not because their nominee is a sexual predator. But rather because of the implications it could have for other men — mainly that other predators might have to deal with the repercussions.
Junior was the first to express his concern over the situation. He recently told The Daily Mail,
“I’ve got boys, and I’ve got girls. And when I see what’s going on right now, it’s scary.”
He clarified, however, that he was much more scared for his sons than he was for his daughters — you know, because god forbid his sons do something horrible to a woman and then get punished for it. Rapists are the real victims here, right?
This afternoon, Trump echoed his son’s sentiment while speaking to reporters. He said,
“It is a very scary time for young men in America when you can be guilty of something that you may not be guilty of.”
“You can be somebody that was perfect your entire life and somebody can accuse you of something. It doesn’t necessarily have to be a woman. But somebody can accuse you of something.”
Of course, it’s ironic that Trump would express concern at all about this. Trump has been accused of numerous sexual assaults and incidents of misconduct, and even bragged about it, yet has emerged unscathed. Hell, he’s even been elected president! How lucky is he?
Don’t worry, Trump, I’m sure there are many sexual predators who will escape harm, including your precious Brett Kavanaugh,
