As Republican Senate candidate in Alabama, Roy Moore, continues to face a maelstrom of controversy over sexual misconduct allegations and making sexual advances towards teenage girls when he was in his thirties, the internet has resurfaced an old, controversial tweet by US President Donald Trump.
In the old tweet posted back in July 2013, much before taking office, Trump bragged about his interest and "talent" in dating younger women. Trump's post at the time came in response to another Twitter user's allegation that he preferred dating women "young enough" to be his daughter.
"That's talent," Trump, who was 67 at the time, wrote.
Trump has a history of controversial and misogynistic remarks along with the shocking 2005 Access Hollywood tape that emerged during the 2016 election campaign in which he boasted about groping women and kissing them without their consent.
The resurfaced tweet immediately triggered a wave of criticism against Trump in light of the Roy Moore scandal and growing attention towards sexual harassment since the bombshell claims against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.
Multiple women have also come forward accusing Trump of sexual misconduct, which he dismissed as "fake news." During a press briefing last month, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the White House's official position on the numerous women accusing Trump of sexual harassment is that they are lying.
Other Twitter users said the tweet was especially jarring, given his previous remarks about his eldest daughter Ivanka whom he once said has "the best body." Back in 2006, Trump infamously said on The View that he would date Ivanka if she were not his daughter.
In 2015, he told Rolling Stone: "Yeah, she's really something, and what a beauty, that one. If I weren't happily married and, ya know, her father..."
Meanwhile, Twitter was left cringing over the resurfaced "perverted" tweet and erupted with a slew of memes and sarcastic comments.
Pretty Little Liars and Charmed actress Holly Marie Combs tweeted: "Grossest in chief. Really. Gross."
"This is disgusting," one user tweeted.
"Nobody trolls Current Trump better than Past Trump," one Twitter user wrote. Another added: "There's a Trump tweet for everything."
"What has become of America?" one person asked.
