Trump Says He Sexually Assaults Women, Women Say He Sexually Assaulted Them

At least five women stepped forward last night to say that Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump sexually assaulted them, and many more have corroborated stories of him waltzing into dressing rooms where naked women and teenage girls were either nude or partially nude.

In the New York Times, former traveling businesswoman Jessica Leeds and former Trump Tower receptionist Rachel Crooks say Trump assaulted them in 1980 and 2005 respectively.

More than three decades ago, when she was a traveling businesswoman at a paper company, Ms. Leeds said, she sat beside Mr. Trump in the first-class cabin of a flight to New York. They had never met before.

About 45 minutes after takeoff, she recalled, Mr. Trump lifted the armrest and began to touch her.

According to Ms. Leeds, Mr. Trump grabbed her breasts and tried to put his hand up her skirt.


Ms. Crooks was a 22-year-old receptionist at Bayrock Group, a real estate investment and development company in Trump Tower in Manhattan, when she encountered Mr. Trump outside an elevator in the building one morning in 2005.

Aware that her company did business with Mr. Trump, she turned and introduced herself. They shook hands, but Mr. Trump would not let go, she said. Instead, he began kissing her cheeks. Then, she said, he “kissed me directly on the mouth.

At People Magazine, writer Natasha Stoynoff says Trump assaulted her while they were waiting for a joint interview at the Mar-a-Lago with his pregnant wife Melania.

Our photo team shot the Trumps on the lush grounds of their Florida estate, and I interviewed them about how happy their first year of marriage had been. When we took a break for the then-very-pregnant Melania to go upstairs and change wardrobe for more photos, Donald wanted to show me around the mansion. There was one “tremendous” room in particular, he said, that I just had to see. [...]

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.

Former Miss Washington 2013 Cassandra Searles also also posted on Facebook that Trump treated pageant contestants like "cattle" and "continually" grabbed her ass.

At the Palm Beach Post, Mindy McGillivray says Trump groped her while she was helping a friend hold a concert at the Mar-a-Lago in 2003.

In addition to the above charges of sexual assault, former Miss New Mexico Teen USA 1997 came forward last night to say that Trump routinely walked into their dressing rooms while some girls as young as 15 were undressed.

A fifth Miss Teen USA pageant contestant came forward Wednesday night to say that like four others who have spoken to BuzzFeed News, she recalled Donald Trump entering the group dressing room while teenagers were changing their clothes during the 1997 pageant.

“It was certainly the most inappropriate time to meet us all for the first time,” said Victoria Hughes, the former Miss New Mexico Teen USA, in an email. “The youngest girl was 15, and I was the eldest at 19.”

There's more.

CBS News release video footage of Trump sexualizing a 10-year-old girl and saying he would be "dating her in 10 years."

Trump and his surrogates are denying these stories, of course, but there's a very big problem for Trump.

The problem is we have video footage of him bragging that he kisses and gropes women without their consent. He likes to "grab 'em by the pussy," he said. He said he "doesn't even wait" to kiss women.

The victims who've come forward are affirming what Trump himself said. He said he likes to assault women.

It should not be forgotten that Trump is due in court in December to face a civil lawsuit for allegedly raping a 13-year-old girl.

    What a disgusting little man.

    Wow. The Trump Monster had a real meltdown today. He is promising that if elected he would jail not just Hilary Clinton but the law firm that represented her as well as probably James Comey.
    It seems he thinks he would and should be a law unto himself. Or else he is off the meds.
    Unfair and Unbalanced. Beyond unhinged, really. Bleeding right into deranged.

    “You can do anything, the left will promote and understand and tolerate anything, as long as there is one element,” [Rush Limbaugh] said in comments posted online by Media Matters. “Do you know what it is? Consent.

    “If there is consent on both or all three or all four, however many
    are involved in the sex act, it’s perfectly fine, whatever it is. But if
    the left ever senses and smells that there’s no consent in part of the
    equation then here come the rape police. But consent is the magic key to
    the left.”

    Do — do you think that maybe they’re starting to get it? Just a tiny little bit?

    • Badgerite

      The requirement of consent it not a “politically correct” thing. Not a ‘left’ or ‘right’ thing. It is actually a LEGAL thing. It is the law that requires consent. I guess Limboo would like to change that.

        I’m just floored by what he considers awful vs. what he considers acceptable. Floored.

        • Badgerite

          I know. Bizarre.

        • Badgerite

          Seriously. “Houston. We have a problem.” One of the country’s major political party’s is nuts and seems to want to represent the pervert faction in this country.

    • Christopher Foxx

      Do — do you think that maybe they’re starting to get it? Just a tiny little bit?

      Nope. Not one bit. As Limbaugh makes painfully clear.

  • I feel sorry for these women. Besides the obvious Ewww Factor reason, Drumpf’s supporters are going to do everything in their power to discredit, harass and intimidate them. No woman in her right mind would subject herself to such abuse and probably physical danger unless her story was true.

    • Georgie

      Doesn’t sound like the girl says ewww after drumpf says his thing?

  • Too bad that court appearance isn’t scheduled before the election. He’ll end up buying his way out of it, like he always does. Color me cynical….

  • Aynwrong

    The Trump Campaign is threatening to torn Bill Clinton into Bill Cosby. I guess they haven’t realized Donald Trump has already turned himself into Bill Cosby.

    • Christopher Foxx

      I guess they haven’t realized Donald Trump has already turned himself into Bill Cosby.

      Oh, I’m sure they have. And that it’s the reason they’re now trying to deflect all the attention to Bill Clinton.

  • Dread_Pirate_Mathius

    I have absolutely zero doubt in my mind that Hillary Clinton masterminded the timing and controlled release of the tape and these allegations. That doesn’t make them untrue, however.

    If anything, it only means that Mrs. Clinton is a brilliant tactician who took her time (and lumps), and waited patiently for the kill-shot.

    Now, that is how the game is played.

    • JMAshby

      Several of these women decided to speak out after Trump denied that he has assaulted women during the 2nd presidential debate. There is no mastermind here. This was not orchestrated by the Clinton campaign.

      Reporters at virtually every publication are looking for similar stories. That’s how the news works.

      • It doesn’t hurt that Drumpf had banned and threatened many of the papers who are working so hard to find these stories. So, Clinton hardly had to do anything but sit back and let him destroy himself.

      • Christopher Foxx

        That’s how the news works

        About damned time.
