Hypocrisy has always been a familiar term when to comes to the realm of politics, and this particular instance is no exception. Joy Villa, (the singer and Trump supporter who wore the Make America Great Again dress at the Grammys) says that she has filed a sexual assault complaint against Trump’s former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski. Her claim is that Lewandowski hit her on the butt twice, despite her telling him to stop.
“I didn’t know him at all,” Villa said about Lewandowski in an article published on abc. “I only knew him by reputation. He broke my trust.” The article goes on to tell us her side of the story.
She said she saw him at a gathering at the Trump International Hotel on the day after Thanksgiving and said Lewandowski struck her “extremely hard” even after she told him to stop. She said she felt it was “disgusting and shocking and demeaning.”
Usually in this instance, one would just say #MeToo, make a few inspiring posts on Facebook, take care of the problem and call it a day. But not Joy Villa, whose fan base may be a little void of Trump supporters now. Not because of who she outed, this isn’t the issue here; it’s what she did after the accusations that are going to leave her Trump supporter fan base up in arms.
In a video titled “Joy Villa Exposed”, we see Villa attending some sort of gathering, likely something to do with Christmas. We then see Villa laughing as she pretends to smack a man’s butt, only to actually perform the act two seconds later. “Hey, take it easy.” The man responded, clearly annoyed.
As one person’s comment pointed out, “So Joy was hitting a guy on the butt, but goes to police and accuse Corey of hitting her in the butt as demeaning?” There is no denying that if what Joy says is true, Lewandowski crossed the line. But to say that Villa was “just playing around” is straight up hypocrisy, and it’s the exact kind of behavior America is fed up with.
