Recent allegations of two women coming forward against U.S. Presidential hopeful Donald Trump seems calculated and suspicious. The article published by The New York Times titled ‘Two Women Say Donald Trump Touched Them Inappropriately’ by Megan Twohey and Michael Barbaro reeks of a conspiracy by the establishment media to frame Trump as a sexual predator who cannot keep his hands or his mouth to himself.
First, I want to make it clear that I do not favor any of the two candidates especially Hillary Clinton who in this case is worst than Trump. The New York Times story regarding these two women is propaganda because the accusations are questionable.
The story starts off with Jessica Leeds, a former business woman who worked for a paper company claims that Trump “lifted the armrest and began to touch her” then according to the article “grabbed her breasts and tried to put his hand up her skirt.”
Then Ms. Leeds went on to say that “He was like an octopus,” and that “His hands were everywhere.” Seems like sexual assault or an attempted rape. Why weren’t the flight attendants and the pilots notified of the situation? According to the report, “She fled to the back of the plane. “It was an assault,” she said.”
There are several questions about Ms. Leeds story. First, why did it take more than “three decades” for Ms. Leeds to tell her story?
Why wait a few weeks before the U.S. presidential elections? How can Donald Trump defend himself against an accusation that happened more than thirty years ago?
Ms. Leeds could have come forward with her accusations when Trump was on ‘The Apprentice’ or when Trump was in the process of getting a divorce from his ex-wife Ivanka?
Why has Ms. Leeds waited for so long? She told The New York Times “We accepted it for years,” she said of the conduct. “We were taught it was our fault.” It was her fault? Mr. Trump became an octopus and sexually assaulted Ms. Leeds on a first class business trip was enough to alert the airline staff and have the police waiting at the airport. But that did not happen. It does seem calculated and nearly impossible for Trump to defend himself against an accusation of that magnitude. Its Ms. Leeds words against Donald Trump and The New York Times made up its mind on whose words they choose to believe.
Another woman who came forward is a former receptionist by the name of Rachel Crooks who worked for the Bayrock Group, a real estate investment and development company in 2005 that was located in the Trump Tower in Manhattan. Ms. Crooks claims that she was a victim of Donald Trump who was also watching the debate was furious at Trump’s statement that he had not kissed or touched women without permission according to the report:
Mr. Trump’s claim that his crude words had never turned into actions was similarly infuriating to a woman watching on Sunday night in Ohio: Rachel Crooks. 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”
The first question we must ask ourselves is why Trump would start kissing Ms. Crook’s cheeks and then attempt to kiss her on the mouth outside an elevator of his own building? The Trump Towers have security cameras especially after the September 11th attacks, so the question is do you think that Trump is really that stupid to forcibly kiss Ms. Crooks outside an elevator of his own building? According to Ms. Crooks:
It didn’t feel like an accident, she said. It felt like a violation. “It was so inappropriate,” Ms. Crooks recalled in an interview. “I was so upset that he thought I was so insignificant that he could do that.” Shaken, Ms. Crooks returned to her desk and immediately called her sister, Brianne Webb, in the small town in Ohio where they grew up, and told her what had happened.
“She was very worked up about it,” said Ms. Webb, who recalled pressing her sister for details. “Being from a town of 1,600 people, being naïve, I was like ‘Are you sure he didn’t just miss trying to kiss you on the cheek?’ She said, ‘No, he kissed me on the mouth.’ I was like, ‘That is not normal”
Why Ms. Crook’s sister did not tell her to complain to her company or find a lawyer who could sue Mr. Trump for sexual harassment? Ms. Leeds and Ms. Crooks were alleged victims of a sexual assault but they never reported the incidents to the authorities:
Ms. Crooks and Ms. Leeds never reported their accounts to the authorities, but they both shared what happened to them with friends and family. Ms. Crooks did so immediately afterward; Ms. Leeds described the events to those close to her more recently, as Mr. Trump became more visible politically and ran for president
The New York Times is supporting Hillary Clinton despite the fact that Wikileaks has published numerous emails that exposed Clinton’s Wall Street speeches and her involvement in the overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi which has destroyed Libya when she was Secretary of State. Wikileaks also released emails that confirmed her commitment to overthrow Syrian President Bashar al-Assad by supporting and arming the “moderate rebels” (or terrorists). Other crimes committed by Clinton includes the deletion of more than 30,000 emails which most likely had more dirty secrets and don’t forget her collusion with the main-stream media (MSM) including the New York Times.
Hillary Clinton has authorized the murder of countless men, women and children in the Middle East, North Africa and Central America (Honduras). Trump is not perfect by any means and yes his recordings with Billy Bush were “lewd” and disrespectful towards women, but I would bet that Bill Clinton and his friends say worst things about women. Besides, Bill Clinton is actually accused of sexual assault and in some cases, rape by various women before and after he was U.S. President. Hillary Clinton herself defended a child rapist when she was a defense attorney in Arkansas but the New York Times will not mention those cases so close to the presidential election.
The MSM continues to associate Trump as an asset of Russia and now as a sexual predator who cannot keep his hands or mouth to himself. Rest assured more women are going to come forward with new allegations that Trump sexually assaulted them in one way or another. The New York Times is a propaganda mouthpiece for U.S. interventions and occupation (Judith Miller and the WMD story against the Iraqi Government is just one example) and to cover the blatant lies of the establishment. Whether you love or hate Trump, The New York Times is not following the rules of journalistic principles of ‘objectivity’ that includes being fair, reporting the facts and being nonpartisan. What is most important principle for any news organization is to tell the truth to the public and that is something the MSM in the West has lost a long time ago.
