People's Eye-roll Emojis Are In Overdrive After Trump Declares April Sexual Assault Awareness Month

This guy is an April fool in the truest sense of the expression.

Published April 1, 2017

“Hypocrite” is one word to describe Donald Trump, and he showed why again on Friday (March 31).

  1. The Donald, through a White House statement, says he wants to honor April as Sexual Assault Awareness Month…

    "We dedicate each April to raising awareness about sexual abuse and recommitting ourselves to fighting it," the president said. "Women, children, and men have inherent dignity that should never be violated."

    Uh. Yeah. And we’re currently trying not to melt from the irony. If anyone’s actually raised people’s awareness of the tragedy that is sexual assault, it’s Donald Trump. Remember when he made the infamous “grab ‘em by the p***y” comments? Of course you do.

    Twitter decided to join in on clowning Trump’s poor self-awareness.

    “This is a good time to remind people that at least 12 women came forward and said they were sexually assaulted by Trump,” someone wrote. “Irony just stabbed itself in the heart with a pair of dull scissors,” another person tweeted.
