Irony Of The Day: Trump Laments “Shattered Lives” From False Allegations

Donald Trump took to Twitter Saturday morning to defend two White House staffers who resigned due to allegations of domestic abuse.

Time and again Donald Trump finds a way to side with men accused of bad behavior but he never has a word for the victims.

From The New York Times:

In a Twitter post, Mr. Trump appeared to raise doubts about the entire #MeToo movement, a day after he had offered sympathy for a former aide accused of spousal abuse.

“Peoples lives are being shattered and destroyed by a mere allegation,” the president wrote on Twitter, adding: “There is no recovery for someone falsely accused – life and career are gone. Is there no such thing any longer as Due Process?”

On Friday, the president had jumped into the controversy over the former aide, Rob Porter, who is accused by two former wives of physical and emotional abuse, defending him and offering no denunciation even for the idea of assaulting women. Mr. Trump, who himself has been accused of sexual misconduct, focused instead on Mr. Porter, saying that he was enduring a “tough time.”

Of course, this is the same man who makes unfounded claims against his enemies all the time…
