During a speech in Montana, the current president dissed Elizabeth Warren, and while trying to be funny, he also mocked the #MeToo movement. As you can imagine, social media users were outraged someone who was accused by at least 21 women of sexual misconduct would dare to go there.
We are never surprised when Donald Trump says whatever crosses his mind and disregards everything and this time was no different.
While we agree that he should have stayed away from such a topic, it’s not like we didn’t expect it from him.
It all started when he was ranting about how he couldn’t care less that people say him calling Dem. Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren ‘Pocahontas’ is insensitive.
In fact, he continued to use the nickname throughout the speech.
While discussing whether or not the possible 2020 presidential candidate opponent has any Native American heritage, he made fun of the #MeToo movement.
‘I want to apologize. Pocahontas, I apologize to you. I apologize to you. To you, I apologize. To the fake Pocahontas, I won’t apologize.’
He then said that he wants her to take a test and prove her racial background.
‘We’ll take that little kit and say, we have to do it gently because we are in the Me Too generation, and we will very gently take that kit, slowly toss it’ to her.
Who would've guessed that the guy accused of sexual misconduct by 22 women wouldn't take the #MeToo movement seriously?

He made it very clear that he’d give one million dollars to whatever charity she wants if it turns out that she is ‘Indian.’
Here’s video of Trump mocking the #MeToo movement at his rally. A guy who’s credibly accused of raping, groping and assaulting 21 women. This dude is a lunatic. And utterly disgusting. What a stain on America. A grotesque, impeachable display by a scumbag. pic.twitter.com/xENqxhCmim

‘I hope we can get the #MeToo generation to get Trump out of office – and not very gently,’ one user tweeted.
‘I have criticisms of our generation. I have criticisms of #metoo. Even so, Trump saying ‘we are the me too generation, so we have to be very gentle’ is so completely wrong and idiotic,’ another wrote.
