The sexual-predator-in-chief is predictably denying the latest allegations against him.
President Trump responded to the accusations by journalist and advice columnist E. Jean Carroll that Trump raped her in a department store dressing room in New York City in the mid-1990s after Carroll revealed her story in a New York Magazine article and began turning up on cable news programs with the grisly details.
“He just went at it. He pulled down my tights and it was a fight,” Carroll said in her appearance on CNN. “I want women know that I did not stand there, I did not freeze, I was not paralyzed, which is a reaction could have had because it’s so shocking. No, I fought.”
Trump, for his part, made it clear that he had carefully studied the lessons laid out in the late 1960’s bedroom farce The Guide For The Married Man, which contained a scene counseling any man caught cheating on their wife to “deny, deny deny” even if they are caught in flagrante delicto.
In an interview that the president gave to The Hill, Trump took denial to new heights while adding insult to the alleged injury.
“I’ll say it with great respect: Number one, she’s not my type. Number two, it never happened. It never happened, OK?” Trump declared to The Hill from the Oval Office.
The president’s denials might seem more believable had he not been accused of sexual assault by nearly two dozen other women.
Having deservedly earned the reputation as the boy who cried wolf — or rather “the boy who cried “I moved on her like a bitch,” “I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything,” and “Grab ’em by the pussy” — with his record number of confirmed lies, Trump’s denials will only be believed by his most ignorant and misogynistic supporters.
Unfortunately, the rest of his base will simply hold their noses and excuse his behavior because they know he’ll continue to support judges who will strive to repeal Roe v. Wade and to cynically lie to them about bringing back an America long lost to the mists of time.
By this point, a majority of Americans have woken up to the fact that Trump’s accusations towards others are a sure sign that he is labeling them by projecting his own sins upon them. It is only with that knowledge can one properly interpret Trump’s reaction to Carroll’s recounting of his assault on her.
“Totally lying. I don’t know anything about her,” Trump told The Hill. “I know nothing about this woman. I know nothing about her. She is — it’s just a terrible thing that people can make statements like that.”
Well, at least the president’s last sentence there is accurate…when applied to himself.
Just think, he could have easily made his previous two sentences 100% accurate by simply dropping a few words and making one plural:
“I know nothing about women. I know nothing” would be much more in line with reality than what the notorious and still-at-large sexual predator has claimed.
Now we have one more atrocity to add to the garbage mountain that is the Trump presidency. He must be impeached immediately for the United States to be able to come back from the brink of disaster.
