Donald Trump’s recent “locker room” comments have caused a stir among liberal voters who had already pegged Donald Trump as a misogynist.
Trump has repeatedly stated that his comments were nothing more than macho bluster, but his chances of winning the election will depend heavily on who voters believe: Trump or the liberal media. Recent polls show his popularity has already suffered a serious hit.
To make matters worse, the New York Times published an article Tuesday featuring two women who claim to have been sexually assaulted (decades ago) by Donald Trump. It didn’t take much digging to discover that this story was completely false.
Jessica Leeds, now 74, claims that Donald Trump groped her “like an octopus” during a flight to New York. Leeds told the NY Times that he lifted the armrest and started touching her about 45 minutes after takeoff.
Of course there were no witnesses, but the real red flag with this story is that photo evidence shows first class seats do not have moveable armrests. Anyone who has traveled first class knows this. On top of that, there is simply no reason why anyone would wait 30 years to report a case of sexual assault.
In another case, where Trump was accuses of inappropriate behavior during an interview, Trump noted the interview was conducted in a room with glass walls in front of many people. And why would this interviewer not have publish the accusations at the time? It would have been a huge story when Trump was at his height of popularity.
By Thursday night, a total of six women had publically accused Trump of sexual assault. How convenient that these reports are surfacing just weeks before the election…and of course most of the “victims” are Hillary supporters.
Donald Trump defended himself against these “false smears” at rallies this week in West Palm Beach and Cincinnati and has threatened to sue the NY Times for libel if it does not apologize for the “defamatory” article.
Trump asserts these accusations are part of the Clinton campaigns actions to undermine his campaign. Rumors are also circulating that Paul Ryan (who recently withdrew his support for the billionaire) is responsible for releasing the “sex talk” audio that had the media in an uproar last week.
On Thursday, Trump urged his South Florida audience to view him as a sort of martyr: “I take all of these slings and arrows, gladly, for you. I take them for our movement, so that we can have our country back. Our great civilization here in America and across the civilized world has come upon a moment of reckoning.”
“The establishment and their media neighbors wield control over this nation through means that are very well known – anyone who challenges their control is deemed a sexist, a racist, a xenophobe and morally deformed,” said Trump. “They will seek to destroy everything about you, including your reputation. They will lie, lie, lie, and then again, they will do worse than that. They will do whatever’s necessary.”
