Because the Sexual-Predator-In-Chief has no sense of probity or even prudence about revealing his bottomless jackassery, he has now ineptly blundered into the national conversation about the current deluge of news of sexual misconduct in what one scathing critic calls "the Garden of Dicks." Thus has Trump swiftly and ill-advisedly attacked Democrats accused of crimes that pale before his own, blithely endorsed Alabama Senate hopeful and serial child molester Roy Moore - "He denies it! Women are special!" - and newly backtracked on his infamous pussy-grabbing tape to suggest it's - his favorite thing besides lying, golfing, making up facts, lying, and (ewww) groping women - fake. As usual, bad move. “Access Hollywood” promptly pushed back - “The tape is very real. He said every one of those words.” Others, meanwhile, inevitably revisited Trump's multiple crimes, blathering denials - "The events never happened" - and slimy, ongoing evasion of accountability.
Leading up to the election, at least 16 women charged him with sexual assault or harassment going back over decades. Despite corroborating evidence, he called them all liars, and got away with it. Now, they're back in a short from Brave New Films' Robert Greenwald, who collected their tales of abuse into a "powerful and damning" whole. Their names are Cathy Heller, Jill Harth, Cassandra Searles, Temple Taggart, Jessica Leeds, Kristin Anderson, Lisa Boyne, Karena Virginia, Mindy McGillivray, Rachel Crooks, Natasha Stoynoff, Jessica Drake, Ninni Laaksonen, Samantha Holvey, Tasha Dixon, Summer Zervos. They describe Trump grabbing their breasts and genitals, kissing and fondling them, sticking his tongue down their throat, walking in on them naked. One former beauty pageant contestant reacts for all of them, and us: "Oh my god. Gross." Also illegal. Amos 5: 24: "Let justice roll down like waters..."
Ladies and gentlemen, the President of the United States.
