A state senator from Indiana has deleted a meme he posted on Facebook over the weekend that made fun of “fat women” who attended this past weekend’s Women’s Marches across the country.

Per USA Today, Indiana State Sen. Jack Sandlin faced instant backlash after he posted a meme on his Facebook page that showed a photo of the Women’s March with the caption, “In one day Trump got more fat women out walking than Michelle Obama did in 8 years.”

Social media users quickly flooded Sandlin’s page with angry comments, and the senator deleted the post from his page late last night — and then claimed that he wasn’t the one who posted it on his own account.

“Not sure how that ended up on my Facebook wall but that certainly does not reflect my opinion of women,” he wrote. “People who know me will know that’s not my view.”

Nonetheless, Facebook users are still hammering Sandlin with angry messages about the sexist meme that was posted on his page.

“You should be ASHAMED of yourself for your comment about FAT WOMEN,” wrote one user on Sandlin’s Facebook page. “What and INSULTING and DEMEANING thing to post.”

“As Indiana women we’re going to make sure you never get another leadership position in this country,” wrote another. “I don’t understand this meanness. I look at you and your sister and the way you talk to people and I don’t understand it.”

“You and Donald Trump are exactly the reason we marched in Washington yesterday,” wrote a third.

Published

On Tuesday, The New York Times reported that new filings show President Donald Trump's campaign — and the Republican Party itself — are teetering on the brink of financial oblivion.

"New filings with the Federal Election Commission showed the extent of Mr. Trump’s cash troubles, which are severe enough that he diverted time from key battleground states and flew to California on Sunday for a fund-raiser with just over two weeks until Election Day," reported Shane Goldmacher and Rachel Shorey. "The president ended September with just over half as much money as he had at the beginning of the month."

Published

On Tuesday, The Daily Beast reported that President Donald Trump is now convinced that Dr. Anthony Fauci is trying to play to the media to get positive attention, or maybe even a job.

"In recent months, Trump has routinely gossiped with close associates and advisers that Fauci is behaving like a member of anti-MAGA 'resistance' commentators," reported Erin Blanco. "In the past few weeks, the president has told multiple people that he believes Fauci is angling to earn the media’s adulation and that it at times appears to him that the famous infectious disease expert is 'audition[ing]' or 'trying to get a job at CNN,' according to two sources with knowledge of his private comments."
