Whoever did not see this coming needs to go sit in the corner and remain silent until Thanksgiving. Election 2016 just went scorched Earth.
Reports came out last night of four women accusing Donald Trump of forcibly groping and kissing them. If you’re attempting to eat a meal you might want to stop reading at this point until you finish.
The New York Times reported an allegation of Trump groping a woman on a flight and trying to put his hand up her skirt in the first class section. First class allows you a hot towel, not the right to be a Gropey McGroperson. another woman told The Times that Trump forcibly kissed her in an elevator. I knew that Aerosmith song would be nothing but trouble.
The Palm Beach Post was told by another woman that Trump grabbed her rear end at his Mar-A-Lago resort. I don’t know if Trump likes the small butts or the big butts, but he can tell a lie. People Magazine reported that Trump shoved his tongue down a reporter’s throat at a photo shoot after his wife left the room. He later told the woman that they would be having an affair.
None of these accusations were made anonymously.
It doesn’t end there. CBS News revealed footage filmed for “Entertainment Tonight” in which Trump is heard commenting about a young girl, “I’m going to be dating her in ten years.” Rolling Stone quoted Miss Washington 2013 saying “He probably doesn’t want me telling the story about that time he continually grabbed my ass and invited me to his hotel room.”
Miss Arizona 2001 told CBS 2 Los Angeles that Trump would waltz into the pageant’s dressing rooms while the contestants were changing. Buzzfeed reported that four women in the 1997 Miss Teen USA beauty pageant said Trump walked into their dressing room while they were changing. Some were as young as 15.
And last but not least, there’s reports of inappropriate contact at the Westminster Dog Show with a Schnauzer. OK, I made that last one up. It was a poodle.
Trump is upset. He’s denying each of these accusations. The problem is, these are exactly the type of incidents Trump himself bragged about doing. Who are we going to believe? Donald Trump or Donald Trump?
In the leaked tape from last Friday he was heard boasting that he can grab and kiss women because he’s a star. In a Howard Stern interview years ago he was bragging about walking into dressing rooms at his pageants to ogle naked girls and how he was allowed because he owned the contests. Not only is it disgusting he’s admitting he’s a pervert on the level of a peeping tom sitting in a tree outside a woman’s window (at the very least), but he’s proud of it and Howard Stern and Robin Quivers were enabling him. Old perverts are hilarious.
Most of these women were silent until Trump stated at the debate that he never engaged in the behavior he bragged about engaging in. It was just “locker room” talk. His denial was just the trigger needed to anger women enough to expose Trump. I’m going to say again, “locker room” talk is usually about sex….not sexual assault. Republicans should learn the difference.
Trump and his supporters are upset. They’ve accused these women of being paid by the Clinton campaign and how it’s unfair to expose charges they can’t prove. Never mind the fact that Trump won’t shut up about Bill Clinton and even flew in his accusers to sit at the front row at the last debate.
Trump is threatening to sue The New York Times over the story and even yelled at the reporter over the phone “you’re a disgusting human being.”
It takes one to know one.
