Awesome April Fool prank by the White House!

Except, it was not meant as a joke.  They are serious about it.

What are they serious about?

Sexual harassment.

Given the current occupant of the Oval Office, I should clarify that it is not pro-harassment!

The President proclaims April 2018 as "National Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month."

Perhaps you are thinking that The Onion came up with this headline, with all the recent news reports of this President's affairs with a porn actress and a Playboy model.  And then the long list of women who have accused him of harassment.

But, seriously, was this scumbag's character ever saintly?

The guy was well known as a scumbag, of the lowliest kind too, and yet was elected to the White House by 63 million voters, including the Bible-thumping and Jesus-loving Evangelicals!

And, even the statement from the White House is an atrocious piece of writing, as if the madman himself wrote it up while walking around in his bathrobe!  Consider this:
Sexual assault crimes remain tragically common in our society, and offenders too often evade accountability. These heinous crimes are committed indiscriminately: in intimate relationships, in public spaces, and in the workplace.
So, if the problem is that these "heinous crimes are committed indiscriminately," does it mean that there is a more polite, legal way to commit those heinous crimes?  Is that how this scumbag committed his?

And then, well, first read the following:
We must not be afraid to talk about sexual assualt and sexual assult prevention with our loved ones ... our Nation will move closer to ending the grief, fear, and suffering caused by sexual assult.
If students submitted such writing, I would advise them to get help from tutors at the Writing Center.  Don't the staff at the White House run even a simple spell-check before they issue pubic, er, public statements?  "Assualt"?  "Assult"

The error that stumped me the most is this one:
We must encourage victims to report sexual assault and law enforcement to hold offenders accountable, and we must support victims and survivors unremmittingly.
What the hell do they mean by "we must support victims and survivors unremmittingly"?  Again, let me remind you that this is an official statement from the White House!

Of course, grammar issues are the least of the character flaws of the pussygrabber.  This scumbag issuing a proclamation on "Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention"?  Seriously?!!!
