A glaring lie in Trump’s sexual harassment tweetstorm could backfire on him spectacularly

Published

on

Among President Donald Trump’s Twitter rant calling the twenty-plus women who’ve accused him of assaulting or harassing them liars hid a falsehood that may make the foundation of any legal action they take against the president.

As Colin Kalmbacher at LawNewz writes, Trump’s Tuesday morning assertion that media are touting accusations by women he “[doesn’t] know and/or have never met” is an easily-demonstrable lie — there are records of him interacting with at least 17 of the 20 accusers.

For the president to claim, for instance, that he “never met” Summer Zervos, a contestant on The Apprentice who is in the process of suing Trump for defamation, is absurd given that she was infamously fired by “The Donald” during her 2006 appearance on the reality TV show.

“Now, after Trump has essentially claimed he never knew or met any of his accusers–which is, again, completely false–there’s an opening for each woman on the above list to prove the president lied about exactly that,” Kalmbacher writes. “And these aren’t just theoretical musings: at least one of Trump’s accusers has signaled her willingness to be deposed in the Zervos case and another accuser is already mentioned in the lawsuit.”

Along with Zervos, there’s record of Trump’s relationships to Cassandra SearlesJessica DrakeNinni LaaksonenSamantha HolveyJuliet Huddy, Jennifer MurphyNatasha StoynoffMindy McGillivrayCathy HellerTemple Taggart McDowellJill Harth and five Miss Teen USA pageant contestants who claimed the president walked in on them while dressing in 1997.

We try to turn the volume down and ignore it, and that may work for a while. But it won’t last. It can’t. It’s getting worse, and we can all see where we’re headed.

Julian Castro nails McConnell and GOP to the wall for putting ‘sexual predator’ Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court

Published

Calling into MSNBC's "AM Joy" on Sunday morning, Democratic presidential contender Julian Castro ripped into Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh as a serial sexual predator and said that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and the GOP are to blame for his being on the court.

Speaking with host Joy Reid, Castro renewed a call he made late Saturday night for Kavanaugh to be impeached over fresh allegations of sexual assault  before getting down to the heart of the matter.

"Do you believe there was misconduct in this case by the FBI and the Department of Justice or even by the senators who seemed uninterested in finding out of what really happened with this very brief investigation of Mr. Kavanaugh?" Reid asked.
