President Trump did the impossible this Thursday he actually managed to make light of the “Me Too” movement during a campaign rally in Montana.
A movement he found himself personally caught up in after numerous women came forward alleging that Trump had sexually harassed them.
“We will take that little kit and say – but we have to do it gently because we’re in the me too generation so we have to be very gentle,” the president joked
“And we will very gently take that kit and we will slowly toss it hoping it doesn’t hit her and injure her arm even though it only weighs probably 2 ounces.”
Trump was making a reference to the #MeToo movement in which individuals have accused several powerful men in politics, media and Hollywood of sexual misconduct.
Several women came forth to accuse Trump of sexual misconduct, with many coming together again last year to say that they felt their claims were not taken as seriously at the time as they would be following the breakthrough of the #MeToo movement.
During the 2016 presidential campaign, a video was released in which Trump can be heard bragging about grabbing women and kissing them without their permission.
During a fiery rally in Montana, the president dished out a wide-range of insults going after Senator John Tester, who is up for re-election this year in a state Trump conquered during the 2016 election.
If you think about It makes sense that the man who was at one point the focus of the Me Too movement would try to discredit it to save himself.

Civility? He mocks a POW, says he don’t like ppl who get captured, mocks a disabled man, uses racial slurs & racist dog whistles, curses on stage, mocks our allies, attacks private businesses, & now mocks this movement. How much more r we going to endure from him? Enough already!

Sounds like someone missed the respect yourself and others lesson Leaders don’t need to mock. Insecure bullies mock out of fear of not being accepted and feel inadequate, therefore disrespect others to feel better about themselves.

he’s trying to enrage the left into aggressive behavior so he can accuse them of being aggressive
