Hillary Clinton was met with a great deal of blowback when she referred to many of Donald Trump’s supporters as a “basket of deplorables.” She was wrong to do that. Because they are far, far worse than deplorable and the word deplorable deserves better than these nightmare creatures posing as human beings.
There’s a hashtag trending right now, #NextFakeTrumpVictim. And unlike other hideous and gross trending topics on Twitter, it’s not completely filled with people pointing out how hideous and gross it is. It’s mostly genuine, it’s mostly earnest and it’s entirely awful.
#NextFakeTrumpVictim If you are truly a victim, you don't wait till a presidential campaign to plead your case..— Mom Mary (@coff33loveit) October 13, 2016
#NextFakeTrumpVictim - Because the media needs a fresh serving of feigned moral outrage to keep the attention away from Wikileaks emails.— Paul Joseph Watson (@PrisonPlanet) October 13, 2016
Trump assaulted me on February 31. We were riding my unicorn at the time #NextFakeTrumpVictim— Lauren Williams (@laurenpaige1985) October 13, 2016
People who aren’t shitbuckets of polyp-puss are rightly horrified.
I wake up and #NextFakeTrumpVictim is trending. Do I really want to know or should I just pull the covers over my head and go back to sleep?— Charles M. Blow (@CharlesMBlow) October 13, 2016
I have no idea why women would step up after other women have made accusations. It's almost like it's a safety thing. #NextFakeTrumpVictim— Jenny Trout (@Jenny_Trout) October 13, 2016
The fact that #NextFakeTrumpVictim is trending should tell you exactly why women fear coming forward about sexual assault.— OhNoSheTwitnt (@OhNoSheTwitnt) October 13, 2016
Trump sexually assaulting women is not new. He’s just gotten away with it, thanks to money and power. This is not new. We’re just hearing about it. No one listened to Bill Cosby’s victims until they did.
And everyone who has been or will be assaulted has just another reason to stay silent. Thanks, Donald Trump. And thanks to your fuckbasket.
I hate everything and everyone. So fucking much.
