Trump calls women’s claims of sexual advances ‘vicious’ and ‘absolutely false’
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Donald Trump on Thursday emphatically denied allegations that he groped and kissed women without their consent, after a series of news reports published Wednesday evening in which four women accused him of unwanted sexual advances.
“These vicious claims about me of inappropriate conduct with women are totally and absolutely false,” Trump said at an afternoon rally here.
In perhaps his most contentious tone yet, Trump sought to discredit the media outlets reporting on the allegations by insisting, without clear evidence, that they are trying to help Democrat Hillary Clinton. He also tried to discredit his accusers in a deeply personal manner.
“You take a look. Look at her. Look at her words. You tell me what you think. I don’t think so,” said Trump, singling out former People magazine reporter Natasha Stoynoff, who wrote that Trump kissed her without her consent at his Mar-a-Lago resort when they were alone before an interview with him and his wife, Melania, in 2005.

OK, I have ISSUES with this and I am calling BULLSHIT…
This stuff *supposedly* happened 25-30 years ago? And this is just coming out NOW?? Look, I don’t think Trump is perfect, I know he is *privileged* but for crying out loud, this crap happened a LIFETIME ago and these people are just now finding their voice??
From a friend of mine with a finger on the pulse of news in the UK.
Fred, research the historic sex abuse investigations that have taken place in the UK over the last couple of years. Most of these “victims” turned out to be false. A phenomenon took place where women AND men came forward and jumped on the bandwagon in order to get their 15 minutes of fame, even though their allegations were eventually proved to be false, they were passing polygraphs. I suspect this is what is happening here.
And from another friend that’s a stateside pundit.
Cops being shot, missiles flying in the Middle East, NC under water and the lead story on CBS, NBC and ABC are unsubstantiated reports of Trump groping women and Michelle Obama crying because Trump said mean things. Sad times.
And the clueless masses suck it up.
According to one story I saw today, from NBC I believe, Vladimir Putin said that if the USA didn’t support Trump and vote him in then the USA needs to prepare for nuclear war. I can understand Putin making that threat with Obama in office; all Putin needs to worry about is a *strongly worded letter* in response to the threats.
Honestly, I believe Hillary wouldn’t hesitate to blow Russia away, as would Trump, the downside of all of this sabre rattling is called mutually assured destruction (MAD) and it is a doctrine of military strategy and national security policy in which a full-scale use of nuclear weapons by two or more opposing sides would cause the complete annihilation of both the attacker and the defender.
In other words; we ALL lose.
From the original story.
Trump called his accusers “horrible, horrible liars.” He claimed he can prove their accusations are not true, but he declined to do it on the spot.
Yes, I’m defending Trump, sort of; I’m not saying he’s a Saint, who truly knows what evil lurks in the hearts and minds of men, but if he has a shred of proof that these accusations are false there’s no time like the present to put this entire issue to rest.
Now right about here is where I am likely to piss off people from ALL sides of the political spectrum; IF Trump and Hillary are the best we have, if they are the best America has to offer, and I have said this a number of times in past election cycles, we are going to be forced to once again vote for the lesser of the evils.
GOP, Democrat, Libertarian, Greenies, ALL of them SUCK, and until this nation is led by individuals with only the interest of America in their hearts, we, as a nation and a people will continue our decent into the depths of hell.
