In the era of #MeToo and #TimesUp, Donald Trump is showing that his commitment to the movement with a typo-riddled memo to announce April as National Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month.
"We must not be afraid to talk about sexual assualt [sic] and sexual assult [sic] prevention with our loved ones, in our communities, and with those who have experienced these tragedies," reads the White House memo. "We must encourage victims to report sexual assault and law enforcement to hold offenders accountable, and we must support victims and survivors unremmittingly [sic]. Through a concerted effort to better educate ourselves, empower victims, and punish criminals, our Nation will move closer to ending the grief, fear, and suffering caused by sexual assult [sic]."
However, if Trump wants to remedy the sexual assault epidemic in the United States, he could start with himself. Nineteen women have accused him of sexual misconduct, and at one point, he was caught on tape telling former Today host Billy Bush that "you can do anything" with your celebrity, including grabbing women "by the pussy." One of his accusers, Summer Zervos, is moving forward with a defamation lawsuit against Trump since he called her a liar. Trump has denied the allegations.
Of course, the mistakes, which were pointed out by Vice, didn't go unnoticed by tweeters, who can't help but ridicule Trump about the typos and the hypocrisy of it all. But really, it's just another day in Trump's America.
