In just the past few hours, two more women have come forward accusing Trump of groping/assaulting/GODINEEDBRAINBLEACH them. First, the Washington Post:
Kristin Anderson was deep in conversation with acquaintances at a crowded Manhattan nightspot and did not notice the figure to her right on a red velvet couch — until, she recalls, his fingers slid under her miniskirt, moved up her inner thigh, and touched her vagina through her underwear.
Anderson shoved the hand away, fled the couch and turned to take her first good look at the man who had touched her, she said.
She recognized him as Donald Trump: “He was so distinctive looking — with the hair and the eyebrows. I mean, nobody else has those eyebrows.”
Jezebel has the deets on #2:
At a press conference with attorney Gloria Allred Friday afternoon, Summer Zervos, a former candidate on The Apprentice, said that Donald Trump groped her when she met him at the Beverly Hills hotel to discuss employment opportunities in 2007. “You do not have the right to treat women as sexual objects just because you are a star,” Zervos said, addressing Trump.
Allred said at the presser that Trump’s pussygrabbing comments on the 2005 Access Hollywood tape “hit a nerve,” and that she decided it was her duty to speak out. Allred also said that Zervos told two people close to her about the alleged groping shortly after it occurred.
“Instead of a job, Ms. Zervos claims she got the Donald all over her, kissing her, touching her breasts, leading her into his bedroom,” Allred said. “Donald, before you can become President of the United States, you must first learn to treat women with respect.”
The thing that you need to keep in mind is that this is one man who has wreaked all this havoc on who knows how many women. There are a lot of men in positions of power and with a great deal of wealth. And positions of power is relative- you don’t need to be Donald Trump with billions of dollars (allegedly). It could be Bill Cosby, assaulting women who want to break into the entertainment industry. It could be the owner of a diner employing a single mom with no other job opportunities with a power disparity doing this kind of thing. It’s pretty clear, this is a national epidemic.
