#MeToo has become the defining movement of the Trump presidency.
So far, Trump’s interventions into the movement have been opportunistic at best, and downright offensive at worst. Defending men accused of abusing women, Trump has frequently cast doubt on alleged victims of abuse.
This time, Trump has expressed how “unfair” it is to “bring up” accusations from 20 years ago. Trump’s statement came in defence of his Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, who has faced numerous accusations of sexual misconduct, most notably from California professor Dr Christine Blasey Ford.
Though he could also be referencing accusations against him, which he denies, that date back several decades.
Yet, as with so many things Trump says, there’s a glaring inconsistency.
Trump also appeared with 4 of Bill Clinton's accusers before a debate against Hillary Clinton, so. https://t.co/ZbGoFFq3xQ
