Trump attacked one of his attempted rape accusers just this year: ‘The woman has real problems’

Published

on

Before the Sunday night debate began, Donald Trump was in a conference room with three women who have accused former President Bill Clinton of sexual harassment or sexual assault. But while Trump was playing the understanding and sympathetic character, he was concealing a history of shaming his own accusers of sexual harassment and sexual assault.

“Hillary Clinton attacked those same women, attacked them viciously,” Trump has said throughout the campaign. “Bill Clinton has actually abused women and Hillary has bullied, attacked, shamed and intimidated his victims,” he said in his video apology late Friday night.

While Trump might be talking about something that happened 11 to 20 years ago, just this summer and previously in February, Trump went after former business partner Jill Harth, who accused Trump of sexual assaulting her in the 1990s. But long before the New York Times story over the weekend, LawNewz sat down with Harth. Just a few minutes after publishing their interview, the site says Trump was on the phone to them, denying the allegations and also attacking Harth.

According to their report, Trump told LawNewz that Harth has issues. “If you look in the National Enquirer, there was a story in there that she was in love with me. The woman has real problems,” he told the site. “It’s ridiculous, I’ve never touched this woman.”

Harth also confessed that Trump sent his attorney to try to get her to change her story. In the incident with Harth in the 1990s, she describes Trump forcing himself on her, sliding his hand up her skirt and between her legs and trying to find ways he could get her alone. When the lawsuit was unearthed in February, Harth got the call from Trump’s lawyer saying she needed to keep her mouth shut.

“When your story broke, Donald stuck that lawyer on me right off the bat,” she said, “He was out to protect Donald. He didn’t care how this affected me.” Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen tried to help her “re-understand” what actually happened. It didn’t work.

“He was trying to turn it around like this was something different,” she explained, saying Cohen was trying to convince her Trump was just flirting. “But I think if you try to woo a woman it is mutual. Not just push somebody up against a wall,” she said.

She ultimately withdrew her lawsuit after Trump agreed to a settlement out of court. She stands by her story.

“He can say whatever he wants I know it’s true, I am a part of his past he wants to forget,” she said.

Trump supporters lose their minds when church shows Nativity scene in immigrant cages

Published

MAGA supporters are losing their minds after a photo of the Nativity scene at Claremont United Methodist Church was posted to Facebook.

The scene depicts Mary, Joseph, and the baby Jesus separated and put in their own cages, a reference to the families separated at the U.S.-Mexico border. Inside the church, the family is shown as reunited.

Senior minister Karen Clark Ristine shared the image on Facebook with the message hoping that everyone in the United States could see the photo and read the story for Christmas.

"The theological statement posted with the nativity: In a time in our country when refugee families seek asylum at our borders and are unwillingly separated from one another, we consider the most well-known refugee family in the world," she wrote. "Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, the Holy Family. Shortly after the birth of Jesus, Joseph and Mary were forced to flee with their young son from Nazareth to Egypt to escape King Herod, a tyrant. They feared persecution and death."

Columnist nails Republicans for only caring about Hunter Biden now that his father is running for president

Published

on

One of the critical questions that must be answered by Republicans, according to one Washington Post columnist, is why they didn't care about Hunter Biden's position at Burisma for so many years.

In a Sunday piece, James Downie asked why Republicans didn't do anything about Hunter Biden five years ago when it was first revealed that vice president's son was on the board of a Ukraine energy company. The House and the Senate were being run by Republicans until this year. They haven't had problems with other partisan investigations against high-profile leaders. There were ten investigations into the Benghazi attacks, three hearings, 29 witnesses, and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton testified for 11 hours. Yet, it was only after Joe Biden announced he was running against President Donald Trump that Republicans discovered an issue.
