Trump Supporter Tells Her Teen Daughters That Men Groping Women Is ‘No Big Deal’ During Live Interview

In what may very well be one of the most head-shaking-surely-she-didn’t-just-say-that? moment ever caught on camera by a reporter, a misguided mother just told her daughters and the world that men groping women without their consent (what Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is accused of) is “no big deal.”

Speaking to MSNBC, the staunch President Trump supporter doubled down on her assertion, claiming that even if the allegations of sexual assault (which, as of this morning, have now been leveled by four different women) are true against Kavanaugh that it: 

  . . . doesn’t take away from his character and his job to do what he needs to do as a Supreme Court nominee.

Clearly someone should explain the definition of the term “character” to this woman, while also explaining what the Code of Conduct Requirements for a United States Judge (particularly Canon 2 and its subsections) are.

Former USA Today and current Mediaite reporter Caleb ECarma (@calebecarma) pointed out that, statistically, these comments “reflect” the current GOP supporter response:

 In the video, the unidentified Trump supporter, obviously prompted by a question from a reporter states: 

   Groping a woman? At 18?

Turning to speak to what appears to be her two daughters, she says:

  I mean, how many guys do you know who think that’s no big deal? 


To which the girls nod in agreement before the woman continues: 

  It’s not a big deal. 

The voices on Twitter were loud and clear in their outrage for the two young women standing with their mother in the video:

Many were upset at Trump supporters who appear to think sexual assault and touching without consent are “no big deal” and even fodder for humor (especially female supporters):

Some offered advice to the young women in the video:

Others suggested this mother be reported:

Many continued to be flummoxed by the idea of women voting against their own best interests and being so accepting of violence against women:

Maybe someone should show this woman Jimmy Carter’s 2015 Ted Talk “Why I believe the mistreatment of women is the number one human rights abuse”:
