Twitter unleashes fury on Donald Trump after he tweets that “lives are shattered” over allegations of domestic abuse against aides Rob Porter and David Sorenson, demanding due process for the accused.
Trump tweeted: “Peoples lives are being shattered and destroyed by a mere allegation. Some are true and some are false. Some are old and some are new. There is no recovery for someone falsely accused – life and career gone. Is there no such thing any longer as Due Process?”

He appears to be casting doubt on the #MeToo movement, which he helped to spark because of the sexual misconduct allegations leveled against him by 16 women. He also bragged about grabbing women by the p*ssy just because he could. That he dismissed as locker room talk. He trotted out Bill Clinton’s accusers ahead of a presidential debate to rattle Hillary Clinton. Where was the due process?
Um, remember when Trump attacked Hillary Clinton for a whole host of things, including colluding with Russia and sending classified emails? Where was her due process? He and his lackeys led chants of “lock her up” on the campaign trail on conspiracy theories.
Or, how about when he falsely accused former President Barack Obama of wiretapping his phones in Trump Tower? He led the birther movement against the nation’s first black president and demanded his papers as though we were living in the Jim Crow era or in apartheid South Africa.
The black NFL players protesting racism and police brutality, as well as Mexicans, Muslims, black and brown immigrants, critics and just about every one else are guilty as charged in his narrow mind.
Trump took out a full page ad to call for the death penalty for the Central Park 5 for rape. They were later exonerated. Did he apologize? Nope. He stood by his false accusations against them.
Well, Twitter unleashed some fury on Trump defending domestic violence perpetrators:
A black eye, a report to the FBI, a restraining order: These aren't mere allegations and you are both an abuser and an apologist. GTFO. https://t.co/5LO0nLyRXD

The Republican way:
Wait until a woman gets 2 blacks eyes instead of one.
Then the Trump Administration will finally do something. https://t.co/s1QwCKahkJ

You lead chants of "Lock her up" against a woman, superior to you in every way, who has never been charged much less convicted. Go Bannon yourself. https://t.co/6mRcnWHwz0

Let's face it: Trump has defined his public persona as judge, jury, and executioner. From the Central Park 5, to "Lock her up", to directing the police to abuse aprehendees, to birtherism. I could go on…. https://t.co/p5BX4MzQxF

Weird statement coming from the Obama birther and the guy who, to this day, still thinks the Central Park 5 are guilty.
I wonder what could be different about them….? https://t.co/ZHyXT6srEx

Allegations like someone is a secret Muslim and not even American? Or allegations that someone's dad was involved in assassinating JFK? https://t.co/aM61FunOau

Hard to make this point when you, a repeated sexual predator, and person who most likely colluded with a foreign power to gain power, are still in power. https://t.co/mgf6GtLRhH

People who don't deserve due process according to Trump: African-Americans, the poor, undocumented immigrants, Muslims, Mexicans, Obama.
People who do: Trump and his rich friends after they are credibly accused of sexual and domestic violence (or admit to it on camera) https://t.co/lhaEB0xSob
