Donald Trump being president is one of the biggest logs feuling the #MeToo fire, so it’s only natural he’d eventually try to piss all over the flames.
Not only did POTUS make a mockery of the movement during a Thursday rally in Montana, he did so while insulting Senator Elizabeth Warren’s heritage in the same breath.
After offering to donate $1 million to a charity of Warren’s choice, if she could prove her Native American background, Trump said he would make the politician (whom he affectionately calls “Pocahontas”) take a DNA test if she ran against him in the 2020 election.
That’s where the #MeToo jab came in. He barked to the crowd:
“I’m going to get one of those little kits and in the middle of the debate, when she proclaims she’s of Indian heritage — because her mother said she has high cheekbones, that’s her only evidence. We will take that little kit, but we have to do it gently, because we’re in the ‘Me Too’ generation, so we have to be very gentle.”
Oh, gently fuck off.
Being an accused sexual assaulter, Trump has become one of the biggest opponents of #MeToo. He’s argued for due process before, which is important — however, making a joke of such a movement makes him look like… well, a joke of a president.
But we already knew all that.
At least Warren was quick to clap back at Trump’s comments, calling attention to the migrant child crisis going on due to his shitty immigration policy. She tweeted:
Hey, @realDonaldTrump: While you obsess over my genes, your Admin is conducting DNA tests on little kids because you ripped them from their mamas & you are too incompetent to reunite them in time to meet a court order. Maybe you should focus on fixing the lives you’re destroying.

Just another day in the States.
