Derick Dillard Supports Trump -- Despite Jill Duggar's History of Abuse

We wonder how Jill feels about this. Derick Dillard recently announced his support for Donald Trump, which raised quite a few eyebrows considering his wife's documented experience with sexual abuse.

We're not surprised at all that the notoriously Christian and conservative reality star is voting Republican, but we are a little taken aback that he's voting for someone who bragged about groping women by their special lady parts.

Jill (Duggar) Dillard came forward last year and identified herself as one of her brother's molestation victims, having been groped in her sleep by Josh Duggar while she was a child.

In case you missed it, Trump recently made headlines for his 2005 comments about intentionally mistreating women and sexually abusing them. He said, "I just start kissing them. It's like a magnet. I just kiss. I don't even wait. And when you're a star, they let you do it. You can do anything ... Grab them by the p*ssy. You can do anything."

Despite Trump's obvious character flaws, Derick tweeted that he's planning to vote for him. Fans responded to him directly, questioning why he would make such a choice. One person wrote, "you think someone that thinks sexual assault is cool? Awesome." Another chimed in, "Would you be okay with Jill being treated how Trump admits he treats women? With Israel acting lewd like Trump when he's grown?"

Good points. Of course Derick has the right to vote for whomever he wants to be the leader of the free world. But given his wife's past abuse, it probably would have been wise to keep his mouth shut about supporting someone who brags about abusing women.
