Whatever gains GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump hoped to gain by speaking in historic Gettysburg and laying out his plans for the first 100 days as president, was swallowed up when he threatened to sue all the women who have come forward to accuse him of sexually assaulting them.
After going point by point over his plans, Trump blew up everything he said before by addressing his accusers and saying, "All of these liars will be sued after the election is over.”
The very un-Lincoln-like comment, compared to the more famous and unifying Gettysburg address, was promptly condemned and mocked.

How beautifully symbolic that #Trump chose #Gettysburg location to announce he'll be suing women who have accused him of assault. #sarcasm— Gloria Bernstein G-Train (@Gloria Bernstein G-Train)1477156281.0
@jsavite @harvardshaker I've had hundreds of scores. Big scores. 10s or 11s. Not 4s. Because no one respects women more than me #Gettysburg— ❄️🌨 Sin: Typo Reindeer 🌨❄️ (@❄️🌨 Sin: Typo Reindeer 🌨❄️)1477155751.0

Trump said "100" days b/c it's his estimate of how many women will have come forward by then. #Gettysburg— Laurie Crosswell (@Laurie Crosswell)1477156280.0

I don't recall Lincoln revealing plans to sue women when he gave the real #Gettysburg address. I could be wrong.— JD Rucker (@JD Rucker)1477156706.0
Trump: "And government by me, for me, and of me...will sue those women that weren't worth groping off the face of the earth" #Gettysburg— Dr. Christian DeFeo | #StayAtHome (@Dr. Christian DeFeo | #StayAtHome)1477157170.0
I especially liked his policy proposal to sue the women he groped and harassed. That was very detailed and decisive… https://t.co/WU2iRALYMP— Wendy Chill (@Wendy Chill)1477155238.0
