Here we go again… It’s election time, so you just knew something was going to pop up at some time.
E. Jean Carroll, who has been writing an advice column in Elle Magazine since 1993, has accused Donald Trump of sexually assaulting her in the 1990s.
There are two factors that have collided to create the perfect storm for Carroll.
It is election season and she has a new book coming out.
In an excerpt from that book, Carroll made her allegations of a very aggressive Donald Trump trying to force himself on her.
She wrote, “The moment the dressing-room door is closed, he lunges at me, pushes me against the wall, hitting my head quite badly and puts his mouth against my lips.
“The next moment, still wearing correct business attire, shirt, tie, suit jacket, overcoat, he opens the overcoat, unzips his pants, and, forcing his fingers around my private area, thrusts his penis halfway — or completely, I’m not certain — inside me.
“It turns into a colossal struggle.
“I finally get a knee up high enough to push him out and off and I turn, open the door, and run out of the dressing room.
“The whole episode lasts no more than three minutes.”
The White House immediately released a statement denying the incident ever took place…
“Regarding the “story” by E. Jean Carroll, claiming she once encountered me at Bergdorf Goodman 23 years ago. I’ve never met this person in my life. She is trying to sell a new book – that should indicate her motivation. It should be sold in the fiction section.
“Shame on those who make up false stories of assault to get publicity for themselves, or sell a book, or carry out a political agenda – like Julie Swetnick who falsely accused Justice Brett Kavanaugh. It’s just as bad for people to believe it, particularly when there is zero evidence. Worse still for a dying publication to try to prop itself up by peddling fake news – it’s an epidemic.
“Ms. Carroll & New York Magazine: No pictures? No surveillance? No video? No reports? No sales attendants around?? I would like to thank Bergdorf Goodman for confirming they have no video footage of any such incident, because it never happened.
“False accusations diminish the severity of real assault. All should condemn false accusations and any actual assault in the strongest possible terms.
“If anyone has information that the Democratic Party is working with Ms. Carroll or New York Magazine, please notify us as soon as possible. The world should know what’s really going on. It is a disgrace and people should pay dearly for such false accusations.”
Normally, I would say let’s wait for all the facts to come out before making a decision, but I truly find this almost impossible to believe.
If allegations were going to come out, why not in 2016 when Trump first ran for office and other allegations were made against him?
Did she see the way those allegations were all going and decided to wait until 2020 to have another bombshell to use against Trump?
One thing to note here, though, is that while Trump did say he never met this woman, there is a photo of Carroll with Donald Trump and then-wife Ivana and Carroll’s husband at a party.
This, however, could have easily been a very forgettable event for Trump and it is also probably a safe bet the two occupied other rooms together without actually “knowing” each other.
Before we even get close to believing this allegation, we are going to need to see far more than a few words on paper by Carroll.
