In recent weeks, the news has been dominated by sexual assault allegations against various high-profiled men. After Donald Trump decided to comment on the latest revelations, critics on social media wasted no time firing back.

Trump on scandals

Just one month before Election Day in 2016 and Donald Trump was hit with an October surprise. The now infamous "Access Hollywood" tape was released to the public, which exposed the president's private conversation with former host Billy Bush where he revealed his thoughts about engaging in sexual activity with a married women, while also bragging about using his fame to touch women at will.

In the weeks that followed, the former host of "The Apprentice" was hit with allegations from 12 women who accused him of various forms of sexual assault and harassment. Trump denied the claims and was convincing enough to go on and defeat Hillary Clinton to become the new commander in chief. Fast forward to earlier this fall and the New York Times story that broke revealing the long history of assault allegedly committed by film producer Harvey Weinstein. Since then, multiple high-profiled men in Hollywood, in politics, and in the media have been accused of similar acts, ranging from unwanted passes to full-blown sexual assault. The most recent has been Roy Moore, the Republican Senate nominee in Alabama who has been accused of sexually assaulting various underage girls over the last 40 years.

Moore has denied the allegations, which Trump appeared to believe by taking his side in the upcoming election. As reported by The Hill on November 21, Trump was asked about the recent scandals and seemed thrilled.

While addressing reporters at the White House on Tuesday before heading off to his private resort in Florida, Donald Trump addressed the aforementioned scandals.

"Women are very special," Trump said.

"I think it’s a very special time because a lot of things are coming out and I think that’s good for our society," Donald Trump went on to add. "I think it’s very, very good for women, and I’m very happy a lot of these things are coming out," he continued, while concluding, "I’m very happy it’s being exposed."

Twitter reacts

Not long after Donald Trump's comments, those who oppose the current administration hit back on social media.

"What do you & your daughter Ivanka have in common? Trump's Answer: Sex," one tweet read.

"Choose words carefully. Amazing how he got the word 'exposed' in. Amazing. Good day to you Mr Fraud," another tweet went on to read. "I’m not sure some women are too happy that 'these things are coming' out. Yikes!" one Twitter user wrote.

"Are you happy they are coming out about you too ?

Or are you using your selective memory genius chip ? And avoiding that part of special," an additional tweet stated. The backlash continued as the opposition to Donald Trump in regards to his history of sexual assault allegations showed no signs of ending anytime soon.
