Donald Trump weighed in on the liaison engulfing film noble and Democratic funder Harvey Weinstein, accused by mixed women of passionate nuisance (Weinstein has been fired from his company). “I’ve famous Harvey Weinstein a prolonged time. I’m not at all astounded to see it,” Trump said.
Trump was subsequently asked by CNN’s Elizabeth’s Landers how Weinstein’s control differed from the control Trump bragged about on the “Access Hollywood” tape, where he said, “when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything. Grab ’em by the pussy. You can do anything.” Trump responded that the fasten was just “locker-room talk.”
Rubbish. It wasn’t just “locker-room talk.” At slightest 15 women have publicly accused Trump of passionate nuisance and assault, and People Magazine Natasha Stoynoff has 6 eccentric witnesses to back up her claim that Trump “pushed her against a wall, shoved his tongue in her mouth, and told her they were going to have an affair.”
Trump is actively assaulting women in other ways. The Trump administration’s Education Department has changed to make it harder for women at universities to infer passionate harassment. Trump’s Health and Human Services Department has done it harder for women to get contraceptives. Trump has nominated 32 men and just one lady to turn U.S. Attorneys. Trump’s 2018 bill calls for a 93 percent cut in appropriation for sovereign programs that assist survivors of passionate attack and domestic violence.
Trump and Weinstein are both passionate harassers and predators. But Trump is also boss of the United States. That creates him even some-more dangerous to women.
