Trump supporters flooded Twitter with #HillaryGropedMe

0

#HillaryGropedMe trended on Twitter Saturday night into Sunday morning, but the tweets did not appear to be serious accusations of sexual assault, like those levied against Donald Trump.

The tweets featured heavily edited photos made to look like CNN footage and echoed common Trump slogans and anti-Hillary Clinton sentiments. In some cases they were open taunts, criticizing "Hillbots" for "not believing every single claim," implying that women who accused trump of sexual assault were also being blindly believed.

Here's an example. Note the fake CNN graphics.

This tweet seemed to criticize those who believed Trump's accusers.

This seems tied to an anti-Muslim video that was viral before the Benghazi attack.

Others were less subtle.

Critics jumped in quickly, saying these tweets belittled sexual assault victims.

Others saw it a sign of "wonton meanness."

What do you think of the #HillaryGropedMe tweets?
