Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump held at a rally at Gettysburg over the weekend where the party of Lincoln was unceremoniously beaten like a dead horse.
Trump told the crowd that during his first 100 days as president of the United States, he will file a series of lawsuits against the nearly dozen women who've accused him of sexually assaulting or harassing them.
“All of these liars will be sued after the election,” Trump claimed, alleging that the 10 women who have so far accused him of unwanted advances came forward “to hurt my campaign.” [...]
“We’ll find out about their involvement at a later date through litigation,” Trump charged.
“I’m looking so forward to doing that,” the Republican nominee told the approving crowd.
Pro-Trump advertisements that have been running here in Ohio have billed Trump as the "change" candidate which I suppose is correct because having a president who files lawsuits against women he assaulted would be quite a change. To the best of my knowledge, we've never had a president or even a nominee who has pledged to embroil the nation in a sex scandal immediately after taking office.
He may say otherwise but, even if he were elected, Trump isn't going to sue anyone. Suing these women would require going through lengthy discovery processes and probably entail the publication of unreleased footage from The Apprentice and other shows that media companies have refused to release.
Suing these women would cement his reputation as a crude sexual predator (among other things), not dispel it.
In related news, adult film star Jessica Drake also came forward over the weekend to say that Trump kissed her without asking and offered her $10,000 for sex in 2006. At this point one may wonder just how many times Trump has cheated or attempted to cheat on his wife Melania.
