More than 18 Women have accused Trump of sexual misconduct/assault

10/27/2017

All women who have accused Trump of sexual misconduct/harassment/assault are lying according to the White House.

The various claims about Trump’s inappropriate sexual behavior span three decades and include unwanted groping and kissing, entering backstage dressing areas of Trump-owned beauty pageants (a behavior he confirmed to Howard Stern).  Ex-wife Ivana Trump once used the term raped when describing how Donald once treated her while they were married.

On Friday, the White House dismissed all the women who made the accusations as liars.  Trump has continually denied all allegations, and has repeatedly called his accusers “liars”.  Interestingly, today while facing a defamation lawsuit by one of his accusers, lawyers for Trump claimed that when Trump called his accusers liars it was only political opinion, and he wasn’t actually calling them liars because, well, that would be defamation.

It should be noted that nobody in the Trump camp has offered any other evidence to support that these women are liars.  They have not provided any circumstances where these women have lied in the past, or that they have some other motivation to tell anything but the truth.  Our president on the other hand, has been documented lying hundreds of times (as documented here by the New York Times:  Trump Lies ).

So who are these awful women who are lying about our President?  Remember, Trump and his attorneys have said all of these women are liars, except that the term liar is not really being used because it would be defamatory and cause Trump to be subject to litigation.  Lets take a look!

  • Jill Harth
    • When –  1992, 1993.
    • Where – Atlantic City, Mar-A-Lago
    • What happened – Harth and her then-boyfriend, George Houraney, entered into a business venture with Donald Trump which included holding an event at one of  Trump’s Atlantic City casinos. While dining with Trump and her then boyfriend, Trump attempted to put his hands between her legs.  Harth and Houraney visited Trump’s Mar-A-Lago estate in Florida in January 1993 for a contract-signing celebration. Trump, according to Harth, offered her a tour before pulling her into the empty bedroom of his daughter Ivanka. “I was admiring the decoration, and next thing I know he’s pushing me against a wall and has his hands all over me. He was trying to kiss me. I was freaking out.” Harth says she desperately protested against Trump’s advances and eventually managed to run out of the room. She and her boyfriend left rather than stay the night, as they had intended.  After she became engaged, Harth alleges, Trump began to stalk her.
  • Jessica Leeds
    • When – Around 1980
    • Where – On a plane
    • What happened – Trump inappropriately touched her “like an octopus” during a flight from Connecticut to New York. According to Leeds, a flight attendant upgraded her to first-class, escorting her to an open seat next to Trump. Once they were airborne, Trump raised the seat divider, grabbed her chest, and attempted to move one of his hands up her skirt, she said.  “I remember at one point looking over at the guy in the seat across the aisle, and his eyes were like bugging out of his head.”
  • Kristin Anderson
    • When – 1992
    • Where – Manhattan Nightclub
    • What happened – At a crowded Manhattan nightspot Kristin was sitting with friends when the person on her right slid his fingers under her miniskirt, moved up her inner thigh and touched her vagina through her underwear.  Anderson shoved the hand away, fled the couch and turned to take her first good look at the man who had touched her, she said.  She instantly recognized him as Donald Trump.  “He was so distinctive looking — with the hair and the eyebrows. I mean, nobody else has those eyebrows.”  The episode, as Anderson described it, lasted no more than 30 seconds. Anderson said she and her companions were “very grossed out and weirded out” and thought, “Okay, Donald is gross. We all know he’s gross. Let’s just move on.”  At the time of the incident, Trump was a big celebrity whose face was all over the tabloids and a regular presence on the New York club scene.
  • Cathy Heller

Just kiss. I don’t even wait.” “And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything.”
