Man Who Groped Woman On Southwest Says ‘It’s OK’ Because Of Trump 😡

A Florida man accused of groping a woman on a Southwest Airlines flight told FBI agents after his arrest that President Trump said “it’s okay” to grope women. 

On Sunday, 49-year-old Bruce Michael Alexander from Tampa, Florida, was taken into FBI custody and charged with abusive sexual contact after groping a female passenger during a flight from Houston to Albuquerque, New Mexico. 

According to a criminal complaint, while in custody, Alexander told FBI agents the “President of the United States says it’s OK to grab women by their private parts.”

According to the complaint, the female passenger, identified only as C.W., said Alexander, who was sitting behind her, grabbed the right side of her breast around her “bra line.”

About 15 minutes into the flight, she had fallen asleep. When she first saw the man’s hand by her side, she assumed it was an accident but, 30 minutes later, he grabbed the back of her arm and then “attentively” groped her right side again. The woman confronted Alexander, saying she “didn’t know why he thought it was OK and he needed to stop.” She brought it to the attention of the Southwest Airlines crew and asked to moved to a different seat. 

Alexander was arrested when the plane landed in Albuquerque. While under arrest, Alexander asked what he was being charged with and later commented that the “President of the United States says it’s OK to grab women by their private parts.”

Alexander’s might be the first known case of the “Trump defense.” 

Many were not sure what to think, but plenty knew exactly how they would handle the situation.

While some were left speechless by Alexander’s “defense,” others had seen it coming.

Despite how repulsive it was, people realized the “Trump defense” technically wasn’t wrong.   

If found guilty, Alexander could face up to two years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

In light of the administration’s recent stance on sexual misconduct, Alexander might have a future in D.C.
