Today in disturbing news: a 49-year-old man repeatedly groped a woman on an airplane. He then told authorities in an affidavit “the President of the United States says it’s ok to grab women by their private.”
Well, it was only a matter of time, I suppose.
We talk so much about the psychological impact of electing a sexual predator to the highest office in the land. We discussed how electing Trump as president would signal to other men that it was ok to grope and touch women as they pleased. And now we have our hard evidence.
The incident happened on a Southwest flight where the man grabbed a stranger’s breast. Thirty minutes later, he then groped her again on her breasts and ribs.
The airline crew quickly contacted local authorities in Albuquerque where he was immediately detained, arrested, and then charged with abusive sexual contact.
So let this be a lesson to all you men out there: only rich white men of power get away with sexual assault. The rest of you shmoes need to keep your hands to yourselves.
