In what can only be described as a bombshell, the New York Times and CBS both published incredibly disturbing stories today regarding accusations of sexual assault and impropriety by Donald Trump, once case involving comments made to a 10 year old child.
After the extremely vulgar video from 2005 was released on Friday, Donald Trump and his sycophants were quick to attribute his comments to mere "locker room talk" and try to spin the story as us being too puritanical. Aw, poor Donnie. We are all ganging up on him for talking like every other jock does. Except he is a liar. A disgusting, orange faced, perverted liar.
And now the proof is coming in, fast and furious.
Earlier today, Buzzfeed posted this article where numerous women who competed in the 1997 Miss Teen USA beauty pageant said Donald Trump walked in on them when they were changing. Just a reminder, this pageant has contestants from age 14-19, so Trump was literally walking in on naked minors.
One of the women said, when questioned about his behavior, Trump said “Don’t worry, ladies, I’ve seen it all before.”
Fast forward to this afternoon when The New York Times dropped this bombshell article where they interviewed two women who provided extremely detailed stories about being sexually assaulted by Donald Trump, one woman claims it occurred on a plane about 30 years ago, the other was an employee in Trump Towers and claimed it occurred in 2005.
Jessica Leeds sat next to Trump on a plane about 30 years ago. She claims that he grabbed her breasts, lifted the arm rest and attempted to reach up her skirt to grope her genitals. Leeds said “he was like an octopus. His hands were everywhere.”
Rachel Crooks was a receptionist at Bayrock, a company in Trump Tower. In 2005 she said she met him outside an elevator in the building. She states that he shook her hand, would not let go and then proceeded to kiss her on the mouth without her permission. She was only 22 at the time. He was 58.
These women do not know each other, yet their stories are exactly what Trump says he does to women - touch them without permission, grope them, grab their genitals, kiss them forcefully and against their will.
The New York Times reporter reached out to Donald Trump about this story and he denied every allegation, although I imagine he can't keep track of all of the women he assaulted.
He said “None of this ever took place,” and began yelling at the reporter, accusing them of making up the allegations.
He continued with “You are a disgusting human being. I don’t do it. I don’t do it. It was locker room talk.”
That "locker room talk" excuse is starting to sound like a big old lie.
And adding a layer to this story that is truly vile, yet another report also came out today from CBS News where they have received video where Trump is telling a 10 year old girl that he would "be dating her in 10 years."
The clip was from an Entertainment Tonight Christmas special filmed in 1992 when Trump was 46 years old. In it, he came across a group of young girls and asks one of them if she is “going up the escalator.” When she says yes, he turns to the camera and actually says “I am going to be dating her in 10 years. Can you believe it?”
This comment was made about a 10 year old girl. He found a 10 year old girl sexually attractive enough to actually tell her this. She was probably in 4th or 5th grade, so elementary school age. Trump was 46, a grown man with kids of his own.
What grown man makes these comments? What grown man even thinks this way about children? Power-hungry narcissists, that's who.
How many of Trump's supporters will stand by him after these latest revelations? Now he is not only a serial sexual assaulter, but he is actually objectifying and sexualizing 10 year old girls.
People Magazine just released a story of one of their own writers' harrowing experience with him:
We walked into that room alone, and Trump shut the door behind us. I turned around, and within seconds, he was pushing me against the wall, and forcing his tongue down my throat.
Now, I’m a tall, strapping girl who grew up wrestling two giant brothers. I even once sparred with Mike Tyson. It takes a lot to push me. But Trump is much bigger—a looming figure—and he was fast, taking me by surprise, and throwing me off balance.
I was stunned. And I was grateful when Trump’s longtime butler burst into the room a minute later, as I tried to unpin myself.
