Last night during a rally in Mississippi, President Trump sank to a new low — something that didn’t even seem possible — when he mocked Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who has credibly accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of attempting to rape her when they were in high school. It was a cruel performance, even by Trumpian standards, and once again showed that America has elected a man completely incapable of empathy.

Now, Michael Avenatti has weighed in on Trump’s disgraceful behavior. The attorney, who has quickly evolved into one of the president’s most outspoken enemies, took to Twitter to state that everyone should be angry at Trump’s comments, regardless of one’s political affiliations.

He pointed to the disgraceful way in which Trump tried to get his audience to applaud by mocking Ford and sought to get laughter out of them at her expense.
“Call him what he is – a misogynist pig with no respect for women,” Avenatti concluded his tweet. While the language is harsh, it’s unfortunately accurate. Our president is a misogynist pig and quite possibly a serial rapist.
It’s hardly surprising that a man who has been accused by 22 women of sexual misconduct and even of raping a 13-year-old girl would not only engage in mockery of a probable sexual assault victim but delight in it. Trump loves to humiliate and demean women, it’s one of his few consistent traits. It’s imperative that his behavior does not go unchallenged, and Avenatti should be commended for eschewing traditional etiquette to accurately label the president as the monster he truly is.
Regardless of your politics, you should be outraged by the POTUS standing before a crowd and mocking a woman who claims she was sexually assaulted. @realDonaldTrump sought applause and laughter at her expense. Call him what he is – a misogynist pig with no respect for women.
