Man cites Trump in threat to grab student ‘by the p*ssy’ at Georgia Waffle House: police report

Published

on

A University of Georgia student told police that a man threatened to sexually assault her, justifying himself with the words of President-elect Donald Trump: “Grab them by the p*ssy.”

The Athens Banner-Herald reported on Wednesday that the UGA student said she was at a Waffle House when she heard white men in a booth behind her “making racial comments about Mexicans.”

According to the account in the police report, one of the men said that “he was going to grab (the student) by the p*ssy.”

In an Access Hollywood tape that was leaked during election season, Trump could be heard using the same words while bragging that he could grope women because he was famous.

The men at the Waffle House in Athens, however, denied that the UGA student was threatened with sexual assault.

The suspect told police that “he was having a having a conversation about the president-elect, Donald Trump, and (the student) may have taken offense.”

The head of a domestic violence prevention agency in Athens pointed out to Banner-Herald that the threat was a form of verbal assault.

“When someone hears words like that directed at her it creates a conflict for them,” Project Safe Director Joan Prittie said. “On one hand they may say to themselves I should be OK because it’s just words, but on the other hand it can be quite traumatizing because they continue to think about it are looking over their shoulder.”

“I’m not really surprised it happened,” she added, “but I am surprised that the same words that Trump used were used against her.”

Jackson Katz, co-founder of Mentors in Violence Prevention, told the Huffington Post that he expected an uptick in violence against women because the president has historically been a role model for men.

“We elected a man who is openly misogynistic, who has a decades-long public life of ridiculing, belittling and sexually objectifying women,” Katz explained. “The fact that we have lifted him up to be the president makes a powerful statement about our society and what we accept.”

Published

On Monday, Politico reported that President Donald Trump is consulting with Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) about who he should consider to replace Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats.

Since 2017, he has been known for his stunts and conspiracy theories intended to discredit the Russia investigation and throw suspicion on anyone who looks into Trump's conduct.

Here’s how a new study implies the Supreme Court has killed 16,000 people since 2012

A new paper published by the National Bureau of Economic Research looked into the effects of the Affordable Care Act's Medicaid expansion to people below 138 percent of the poverty line, which has seen nearly 15 million people enrolled in participating states. The results were encouraging: the mortality rate for near-elderly adults has dropped over 9 percent in the four years for which data is available.

But while this is cause for celebration, The Atlantic staff writer Annie Lowrey offered a darker take on the implications of these numbers:
