BREAKING NEWS: Donald Trump just made another horribly offensive comment.
This time Trump decided to spark up some beef with rape survivors.
During a speech on Tuesday evening in St. Clarksville, Ohio, the oversized oompa loompa sans good hair used some choice words to describe what the Trans-Pacific Partnership was doing to America.
In the speech, Trump lamented, “The Trans-Pacific Partnership is another disaster, done and pushed by special interests who want to rape our country. Just a continuing rape of our country. That's what it is, too. It's a harsh word. It's a rape of our country.”
Here, watch it for yourself and cringe:
That's right, Trump is comparing the horrible, life-altering sexual victimization of millions of innocent human beings to a multinational trade agreement he's not a fan of. Because those two are totally the same.
Unfortunately, this isn't the only thing Trump is doing that seems to imply a lax attitude about rape. No, Bloomberg has just revealed that Mike Tyson and Bobby Knight have both been invited to be guests at his convention this summer.
Why do these two men have any relevance to what we're talking about here? Well, Mike Tyson is a convicted rapist and Bobby Knight has publicly stated his belief that "if rape is inevitable, relax and enjoy it.''
But that, of course, doesn't seem to bother Trump at all. In fact, Trump loves their support. No, seriously... he loves it.
In a comment made this past April in Indiana, Trump literally said, “Mike Tyson endorsed me, I love it. You know, all the tough guys endorse me. I like that.” Is he a tough guy... or is he just a CONVICTED RAPIST? Either way, Trump's loving it.
The overarching message here seems to be that Trump has little to no regard for the victims of sexual assault, namely women. No surprise there.
