Congrats Mr. President, you’ve neutered #metoo

It’s not that he’s normalized it, it’s that everyone’s just so beat down by allegations against him.

[www.washingtonpost.com]

Then again E. Jean Carroll is more credible than Juanita Broaddrick was. So yeah, go ahead and bring up Clinton all you like if deflection and whataboutism is what lets you sleep at night.


“I'll say it with great respect: Number one, she's not my type. Number two, it never happened.”

Let’s set the allegation aside for a minute. This asshat suggested he could have raped if she was his type.

Women "wanted" Clinton. Haters hated. Still bossed out a great presidency.

Unfortunately, E. Jean Carol has had more than one problematic moment. First saying that she would not press rape charges against Trump because it would be “disrespectful” to other women being assaulted around the world, then more recently with Anderson Cooper, stating that “... most people think of rape as something sexy.”

None of that speaks definitively to the veracity of her allegations, but they are far enough from conventional thinking to very possibly lose her significant credibility with much of the public.

tRump remains tRump of 10,000 lies, claiming to have never met Carroll, despite a photo of them together, and falling back on what sounds like an exoneration only in his mind, that the assault never would have happened because, “She’s not my type.”

Her stance today, as I take it, is based more on cynicism of the current reality, rather than some sort of ongoing trauma that has since defined her life.

And I don’t know why acknowledging that would reduce her credibility or the likelihood of it being true.

Trump is able to say this because he and his ilk don't believe that such a thing as "rape" actually exists. He believes he should get whatever he wants just because he wants it, and that whatever the woman wants is irrelevant.
