Donald Trump has been foaming at the mouth ever since well-known advice columnist E. Jean Carroll bravely dropped rape allegations against him during an interview with New York Magazine. Both the White House and Trump himself were quick to release statements vehemently denying the accusations while simultaneously blaming his political opponents and launching thinly-veiled threats against his accuser. But of course, Donald couldn’t possibly just leave it at that.
Recently, Donald stopped to take questions from reporters at the White House and promptly went off on one of his trademark tirades when questioned about the rape allegations — ultimately suggesting that Carroll, along with all the other women who have called him out, are being “paid money” to say these things about him.
“I have no idea who this woman is,” Trump demanded. “This is a woman who’s also accused other men of things, as you know. It is a totally false accusation. I think she was married, as I read, I have no idea who she is, but she was married to a — actually nice guy, Johnson, a newscaster.”
“There’s a photograph of you and her,” one reporter shouted out to the president, calling him out on the lie he continues to reiterate.
“Standing with my coat on in a line, give me a break. With my back to the camera,” Donald scoffed. “I have no idea who she is. What she did is terrible. What’s going on. It’s a total false accusation, and I don’t know anything about her, and she’s made this charge against others, and you know, people have to be careful because they’re playing with very dangerous territory, and when they do that and it’s happening more and more. When you look at what happened to Justice Kavanaugh and you look at what’s happening to others, you can’t do that for the sake of publicity.”
“New York Magazine is a failing magazine, it’s ready to go out of business from what I hear,” Trump continued, falling back on his usual tactic of berating the media. “They’ll do anything they can, but this is about many men, and I was one of the many men that she wrote about. It’s a totally false accusation. I have absolutely no idea who she is. There’s some picture where we’re shaking hands it looks like at some kind of event. I have my coat on. I have my wife standing next to me, and I didn’t know her husband, but he was a newscaster, but I have no idea who she is, none whatsoever. It’s a false accusation, and it’s a disgrace that a magazine like New York, which is one of the reasons it’s failing, people don’t read it anymore, so they’re trying to get readership by using me. It’s not good.”
Wait, didn’t he just say Johnson was a nice guy? What does he mean, he doesn’t know him?
And of course, nevermind the fact that New York Magazine is currently the #1 bestseller on Amazon in Regional News and Political Magazines.
“You know, there were cases that the mainstream media didn’t pick up, and I don’t know if you’ve seen them and they were put on Fox, but there were numerous cases where women were paid money to say bad things about me,” Donald added. “You can’t do that. You can’t do that, and those women did wrong things, that women were actually paid money to say bad things about me. But here’s the case, it’s an absolute disgrace that she’s allowed to do that.”
There is no doubt that we will, unfortunately, be hearing rants similar to this for quite some time. Especially considering the newest bombs that are and will continue to drop over this Epstein ordeal. Though, we have no idea why he’s worried about it. Having a corrupt GOP and DoJ in your pocket tends to allow you to get away scot-free with things like this.
