American Urban Radio Networks Washington bureau chief April Ryan told CNN on Thursday that President Donald Trump will inevitably have a day of reckoning with regards to the women who have accused him of sexual harassment and assault.
Ryan was discussing accusations of sexual misconduct against Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) with journalist Hadas Gold and CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin.
Gold said that politicians only face accountability at the ballot box or — in rare instances — when they choose to step down. Thus the process will move slower than it does in broadcasting or other businesses where consumers make decisions every day.
“What I know is what I see from this strange perch,” Ryan said. “What I see is that we have a president who a couple of weeks ago was weighing in on Roy Moore. He wanted Roy Moore regardless because he was desperate for a win — a legislative win, one legislative win.”
She continued, “Now with all of this coming up, we have a president who is the moral leader, who is faced with twelve-plus allegations, twelve-plus women, who are concerned about sexual misconduct with then-civilian Donald Trump.”
“He cannot escape this,” Ryan said. “As the chorus grows of names, it puts the spotlight back on this president.”

Mike Pence calls his wife ‘mother’ — and just referred to Trump as ‘my father’
Mike Pence raised eyebrows on Friday when he sent a campaign message referring to President Donald Trump as "my father."
"We need you right now," Pence wrote in a campaign ad. "It's going to take EVERY Patriot stepping up if we want to CRUSH Sleepy Joe's dreams of turning America into a BIG GOVERNMENT SOCIALIST Nation."
"I convinced my father to give you another chance, which is why he's decided to EXTEND your PERSONAL 500%-MATCH OFFER FOR 1 MORE HOUR," Pence wrote.
NBC News reporter Brandy Zadrozny posted a screengrab of the advertisement.
Zadrozny also offered a theory that language could've have resulted from a copy and paste error with language from an ad that was meant to come from one of Trump's children.
‘Complacent’ Trump slammed by a Marine veteran for ‘squandering’ the honor of slain troops
Timothy Kudo, a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps, criticized President Donald Trump in a Friday column at The Atlantic, describing him as a “complacent commander in chief.”
Kudo slammed Trump for reportedly not reading or ignoring intelligence that had indicated Russia offered Taliban militants bounties to kill American soldiers in Afghanistan.
‘Down in the dumps’: There’s a dark cloud hanging over Trump and the GOP
Countless polls have shown President Donald Trump trailing former Vice President Joe Biden, often by double digits. At the same time, many of the polls reflect a pessimistic mood among U.S. voters as the country continues to be battered by the coronavirus pandemic and double-digit unemployment — a plausible reason for an incumbent performing poorly in his re-election.
Conservative journalist Jennifer Rubin pointed to that mood of pessimism in her Washington Post column, arguing that Trump is badly out of touch with U.S. voters.
