If this is a political ploy, joke's on whoever thought this would be any different than the last 1500 times issues of Trump's conduct and character were brought up. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯



Nah, the joke's on us. I guess if we'll accept rape, we'll accept anything.

Completely irrelevant (and factually incorrect), but nice try.

Hey - let's assume that what you just pulled out of a dark place is 100% correct. And let's assume that your complete mischaracterization of Carroll's comments are somehow accurate.

In what way does that disprove her allegation? Remember - she has two corroborating witnesses who back up her story.


I can no more disprove her story than you (or she) can prove it.

If PROOF is a prerequisite then you believing her kooky story holds no more water than me not believing it.



Easy - all you have to do is say Trump is too (fill in the blank since he isn't scrawny) to rape somebody. Her fault, case closed. We can all leave our homes in safety now.

From what I've read, she was assaulted, not raped. Which still isn't a good thing, and it's not about "accepting rape." It's about celebrity gossip masquerading as real political news.

She claimed he penetrated her. That's rape. Are we going to accept rape, or are we not?

She said he then pulled down her tights and undid his pants, "forcing his fingers around my private area, thrusts his penis halfway – or completely, I’m not certain – inside me."

Which begs the question - wtf are you reading? Luckily, Rodeo summed up what she said happened.

Trump actually fucking numbered his reply. No. 1 was she's not my type. No. 2 was the denial. How can any decent man in this country be supporting this blood clot?

Here is a good article on why rape victims or sexual assault victims don't come forward, and why they may not call it rape (minimizing what happened to them):


http://www.bbc.com/future...me-forward

The persistent stereotype of ‘real rape’ involves a male stranger who violently penetrates a resisting woman in a public place. When sexual assault doesn’t match that narrative, it can make it difficult for even the survivor to recognise that it still was, in fact, sexual assault. The brain, after all, categorises experiences according to what we have been taught about what they mean...

The brain may dissociate to help a survivor get through the moment. But it also makes them less likely to fight back. That, ironically, makes the experience less like the ‘real rape’ narrative so many of us are taught – which may be why women who don’t fight back “are less likely to label the experience as rape”, says Peterson.

Because just like caging small children in squalor, sexual assault has become acceptable? disbelief

Welcome to the new Republican Party.

Republican CULT is more like it...when you read about say, the Manson family, former members would say that how after awhile, behavior that they initially found abhorrent eventually became just "normal" . How is that different from the current Republican Party , which used to be the alleged home of "family values"

yep.

All of this in aggregate will be brought up all during the campaign and its going to be in every ad, in every column, in every news cast.

i don’t see how anyone thinks Turd can escape his own words and actions this time around. It will surely weigh him down.
Last election he could lay down his shtick and move along nimbly bullshiting his way around the election. That ain’t gonna be the case this election.

The two friends that Carroll told about her rape by unrepentant serial adulterer Donald J. Trump have been identified. I fully expect the rape apologists here to make some snarky comments about how stupid it was to wear penny loafers with shorts, or something else incredibly idiotic, in yet another failed attempt to defend unrepentent serial adulterer Donald J. Trump because he cut their taxes:

https://www.dailykos.com/...the-police


After Donald Trump attacked her in a department store dressing room, Elle columnist E. Jean Carroll told two friends. Those friends—one of whom told Carroll to go to the police and one of whom told her to stay quiet—hadn’t come forward publicly, until now.


Now we know that the first woman was Lisa Birnbach, author of The Official Preppy Handbook, who thought Carroll should go to the police. Birnbach describes realizing over the course of their phone conversation, which happened immediately after the attack, that this was rape and telling Carroll, “Let’s go to the police” and “I’ll take you to the police,” but Carroll refusing. A day or two later, Carroll called Carol Martin, an anchor at New York’s WCBS-TV, who remembers that “I said: Don’t tell anybody. I wouldn’t tell anybody this,” because Trump had lawyers and would fight the allegations.


Both women had met Trump: Birnbach had interviewed him at Mar-a-Lago, and Martin had met him at work and had a friend who had dated him.


So there you go: Carroll said from the beginning that she had told two friends, and now we have heard from them—both women with substantial professional reputations—corroborating her account.

On CNN, she explained why she preferred the word “fight” to “rape”: “I think most people think rape is sexy. Think of the fantasies.” (She explained later that she was referring to romance novels that depict men ravishing women. “This was not thrilling, this was a fight,” she said. “A fight where I’m stamping on his feet and I think I’m banging him on the head with my purse.”)

Look, the usual suspects are hard at work trying to cast doubt on the poor woman, but as also usual, i don’t see them equally working hard at casting doubt on Turds account or credibility.It seems it’s always a one way defence team. lol

It's amazing to see people defend adulterers, rapists and possibly even pedophiles by using the flimsiest of arguments.

This is a good illustration of why unrepentant serial adulterer Donald J. Trump has to be impeached. If he isn't, we'll continue the slide down the slippery slope of "You can get away with anything as long as I like what you do".

Unrepentant serial adulterer Donald J. Trump is a proven adulterer. And if you want to qualify the rape, I'd prefer "accused" over "alleged".

And yet, nothing is being done. Republican lawmakers are saying (for example, Lindsey Graham) "Well, he said he didn't do. That's good enough for me." In essence, yes, rape is being accepted, and in the highest offices of our land.

Imagine the outrage if Obama had been accused by 16 or more women of rape, sexual assault or battery, especially if most of the accusers were White women ?
Imaging that scenario allows you to see how much Trump has been given a pass over these very same allegations

Exactly. You saw the outrage over Bill Clinton on the right. You saw the outrage on the right for Al Franken for a photograph in which he mimes grabbing her breasts. You saw the outrage on the right for John Edwards having an extra marital affair and using campaign funds. Trump is accused and you see them rally around him. Roy Moore is accused of pedophilia, and many on the right (including our president) continued to endorse him.

It's disgusting how they rally around their own, and if you look at Wikipedia for "List of federal political sex scandals in the United States" while there are quite a few democrats, the majority are republicans. From 2010 to 2018, twelve Republican officials were accused or found to have had sex scandals tied to them, while only five Democrats have had a sex scandal.

Of the twelve Republicans, two sent nude photos and/or sexually explicit emails; one was improper conduct (he resigned before investigation ended; two were for sexual harrassment; one was for sexually abusing boys; and two were for sexual assault (Trump and Kavanaugh), four were extra marital affairs (one of which asked his mistress to get an abortion).

For the Democrats, one was "groping and tickling male staffers". One was sending nude photos of himself to women on social media. Two were making unwanted sexual advances. Al Franken was one.

Just shows Republicans are closet freaks or outright criminal when it comes to others.
