Trump Asks Why Didnt They Call The FBI 36 Years Ago? Gets Shut Down With #WhyIDidntReport Tweets

President Trump has once again sparked controversy with poorly worded and insensitive Tweets. This time, he took to the social media network to cast doubt on the credibility of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who has made allegations of sexual misconduct against Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh.

In a series of tweets, he suggested that if Dr. Ford’s allegations were ‘as bad as she says,’ she would have reported it at the time, back in the 1980’s. This simplistic take on an experience that is deeply painful, personal and ridden with feelings of fear, shame and guilt, is sadly typical of a President who is chronically lacking in both empathy and self-awareness.

In response to President Trump’s dismissive attitude to the struggles of reporting sexual assault, the hashtag #WhyIDidn’tReport has been spreading like wildfire on Twitter. People are opening up about their experiences in raw and emotional ways, and it makes for heartbreaking, yet important reading. The response proves that there is no set procedure for reporting sexual misconduct, the complex emotions that it provokes and the time it can take to process the trauma are subjective and unique to each individual. Attacking a survivor’s credibility and integrity can only strengthen the stigma around reporting these crimes, and further encourage others to stay silent. Scroll down below to check out the passionate responses to Trump’s tweets for yourself, and let us know what you think in the comments.
