On Tuesday, the Pentagon released a report about the rampant sexual assault taking place within the United States military. The figures the report laid out were shocking to read. From the Associated Press:

The Pentagon report says that the number of sexual assaults reported by members of the military rose from 3,192 to 3,374 in 2012, while the department estimates that as many as 26,000 service members were assaulted, based on anonymous surveys, according to officials who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly about the report.

Politicians from President Obama on down condemned the findings. For noted military theorist Donald Trump, however, the study sent a different message:

It's quite the classy response! Is Trump saying that men are all prone to rape? Or that women shouldn't be allowed in the military because they'll inevitably be assaulted? This seems like a very dark view of the world. Trump has threatened to run for president in the past, but it's possible that he just lost the women's vote. And men's. And military families. And everyone, everywhere.
