2 Women Just Came Out & Claimed Trump Has Groped Them
We all know Trump’s a perv thanks to his many disgusting comments about women. And now, thanks to two women who have come forward, it looks like we might finally have proof that he’s the sexual assaulter he bragged about being back in 2005.
Two women came forward and told the New York Times that they were groped by Trump in the 70s and 80s. The Times published their accounts of the shitty situation tonight.
The first woman, Jessica Leeds, said the assault took place “more than three decades ago” when she was on a business trip, seated in first class next to Trump by coincidence. She said after they talked for 45 minutes, he lifted the armrest and started touching her. Leeds, now 74, says he touched her breasts and tried to put his hands up her skirt.
“He was like an octopus,” she told the Times.
The second woman, Rachel Crooks, was a 22-year-old receptionist in 2005 (coincidentally the same year Trump made his “grab them by the pussy” comments) at a company located in Manhattan’s Trump Tower. She found him outside an elevator and introduced herself because she recognized him.
After the shook hands, he “would not let go,” the Times says. Instead, she says he kissed her cheeks then her mouth.
“It was so inappropriate,” Crooks told the Times. “I was so upset that he thought I was so insignificant that he could do that.”
The women didn’t go to the authorities at the time, which of course will lead Trump supporters to claim these incidents didn’t happen. But non-Trump fans will speculate that these two events are just a tiny sampling of gropings Trump’s doled out over the years.
Of course, Trump is denying having assaulted anyone — not surprising since he doesn’t even think pussy-grabbing is sexual assault, as he said at Sunday’s debate. He’s also denying that any of this even happened.
From the Times:
“None of this ever took place,” said Mr. Trump, who began shouting at The Times reporter who was questioning him. He said that The Times was making up the allegations to hurt him and that he would sue the news organization if it reported them.
“You are a disgusting human being,” he told the reporter as she questioned him about the women’s claims.
Asked whether he had ever done any of the kissing or groping that he had described on the recording, Mr. Trump was once again insistent: “I don’t do it. I don’t do it. It was locker room talk.”
This news comes right on the tail of BuzzFeed’s revelation that Miss Teen USA contestants claim Trump walked in on them changing on purpose.
