Trump Calls Women Survivors of Sexual Assault ‘Screamers’

President Donald Trump is now calling women survivors of sexual assault "screamers" in his latest offensive tweet. Barely more than 12 hours after apologizing to Brett Kavanaugh "on behalf of the nation," the president took to Twitter to once again attack women, specifically women survivors. He also called them "paid protestors," and once again devolved into his conspiracy theories, this time claiming they will be protesting once again because they didn't get paid.


It is unclear where President Trump got his idea for the latest attack.

"The paid D.C. protesters are now ready to REALLY protest because they haven’t gotten their checks - in other words, they weren’t paid! Screamers in Congress, and outside, were far too obvious - less professional than anticipated by those paying (or not paying) the bills!" President Trump tweeted.

Literally not one word of Trump's tweet is true.

His tweet, however, cements the illegitimacy of his latest Supreme Court nominee, now Justice Brett Kavanaugh, and irrevocably stains the Judiciary.

Apparently, this "Fox & Friends" segment prompted Trump's insane and offensive tweet:
