Donald Trump's Response to His Latest Accuser Will Make Your Blood Boil
Speaking at a campaign rally in West Palm Beach, FL, on Thursday, Donald Trump denied the latest accusations from a People magazine writer that he physically attacked her in 2005. "Why wasn't it part of the story that appeared 12 years ago? Why didn't they make it part of the story?" Trump said, referring to writer Natasha Stoynoff's claim that Trump pinned her to a wall and forced his tongue down her throat while she was interviewing him for a story on the one-year anniversary of his marriage to Melania Trump. Per his logic, if she didn't write about it, it must certainly not have happened.
But Trump's most troubling statement came when he alluded to her physical appearance as the reason he wouldn't sexually assault her. "Take a look. You take a look — look at her," he said with a smirk. "Look at her words. You tell me what you think. I don't think so, I don't think so." Here is Trump — a man who denies sexually assaulting women even after he was caught on tape bragging about sexually assaulting women — once again shaming a woman based on her physical appearance.
"These people are horrible people. They're horrible, horrible liars," he said in his speech, apparently referring to Stoynoff as well as the two other women who recently accused him of touching them inappropriately in an article for The New York Times. "And interestingly, it happens to appear 26 days before our very important election. Isn't that amazing?"
Trump will try to make the women's stories look like part of a conspiracy rather than acknowledging that maybe they are just now finding the courage to speak up to a menace like him.
