Oh, so you didn't bother to read the articles, then? Several of those accusations were made long before Trump ran for president, and Trump himself has corroborated some of them. Openly, boastfully, and on tape.

The absence of even a single citation is noted.

And incorrectly so: there were plenty of citations in the articles you didn't read. Here's the New Yorker link again. Maybe you'll click on it this time:

You can lead a horse to water but apparently you can't make him stop drinking the Kool-Aid. If you can't be bothered to read his own words when they impugn his decency, blame yourself. Maybe it makes you feel better to think that Trump isn't a sexual pervert or liar, but he's on the record demonstrating otherwise.

Walking backstage at beauty pageants in no way constitutes corroboration of accusations of sexual harassment. The desperation is noted.

Twitter was not around 20 years ago
All the latest mocking is due to his tweets
I follow him on twitter due to the comedy :-)

It'll be really interesting once foreign governments realize that all they have to do to grind our administration to a halt is hire a few high-profile propagandists to constantly criticize Trump on Twitter. He'll spend all his time responding and will have none left to run the country.

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs: "Sir, a small Russian infantry division has crossed the border from Mexicali and is currently occupying El Centro. How shall we respond?"
Trump: "Never mind that, I'm on Twitter. Alec Baldwin said a nasty thing about me, and then I have to reply to Bruce Springsteen and Madonna. Those losers."

How many movies have you been in that grossed $100M? She's been in six, and her films have a lifetime gross of over $2 billion dollars. That puts her in the top 100 all time, just above Anthony Hopkins, and ahead of both Arnold Schwarzenegger and Alan Rickman (RIP). Criticize the woman for her looks if you will (Trump does it, why shouldn't you?) but don't pretend for a second that she's not a fabulously successful actress.

I know how you and a lot of Trump supporters feel. Jubilant, hopeful, and defiant. Angry and emphatic.

That will give way to despair and disappointment in about six months. You've elected a man whose policies will financially benefit me and not you, yet ironically, you support that and I don't.

Some chess players can see several moves ahead and know that they're going to lose long before the first check is given. Other players are too focused on their last favorable exchange to see what's coming in the bigger picture, but that won't stop them from losing.

Electing Trump has made us all losers. You just can't see it yet. Our king will fall shortly, that's a given. What I don't know is who's playing the other side.



Lots quoted there but I feel very confident I will also do just fine under President Trump. If you feel so bad about benefiting from it, perhaps you should consider changing fields. After all money isn't everything. Why not give it all up and join a charity? Oh wait, I forgot, we need you to us how to live our lives.

You clearly aren't a father of daughters. If you were a father of girls, the thought of a rich older man leering at your naked, teenaged daughter in a beauty pageant dressing room would skeeve you out. But I'm sure you think it was just fine that he walked in on a girl's dressing room as the owner of a beauty pageant, just like you think it's just fine that he talks about dating his daughter or stiffs his contractors or promises if elected to investigate Hillary and then says "just kidding" after he's elected. In your eyes, the man can do no wrong. Got it.

Millions of struggling working-class Americans who didn't find much financial success in the way they were living their lives just voted for Donald Trump. Are you suggesting that they weren't looking to Trump for exactly that kind of help?

At least he wouldn't be too sick or tired to respond at all.

You don't know that.

While many righties pretended that Hillary was sick all the time, they constantly ignored the clear signs that Donald is severely mentally ill.
The geniuses who thought HRC was running a child sex ring out of the basement of a pizza shop just can't connect the dots on all this trump-Russia stuff....

Well it happened. Just continue venting your hatred here. I'd hate for you to do something horrific in real life like other haters have done.



Something horrific? Like what? Like voting the for the racist, sexist, and rapist Trump in 2020 after his impeachment in 2018?

Want to see some to see some thing really horrific? Then see this:

Once again, your wildly baseless assumption and perverted scenarios serve only to deflect from the real question about corroboration. It is a very good thing that mathematicians do not usually work as stagehands either at beauty pageants or backstage at big Las Vegas shows.

Calling me perverted when I'm quoting Trump is hilarious:
Quote: Howard Stern and Donald Trump

Co-host Robin Quivers then asked Trump if sleeping with the contestants could be construed as a conflict of interest.
"It could be a conflict of interest," Trump said. "But, you know, it's the kind of thing you worry about later, you tend to think about the conflict a little bit later on."
Stern then put on a fake foreign accent, saying that "some of these foreign girls" say hello "with vagina."
"Well, what you could also say is that, as the owner of the pageant, it's your obligation to do that," Trump said,
before discussing how he got away with going backstage when the contestants were naked.
"Well, I'll tell you the funniest is that before a show, I'll go backstage and everyone's getting dressed, and everything else, and you know, no men are anywhere, and I'm allowed to go in because I'm the owner of the pageant and therefore I'm inspecting it," Trump said. "You know, I'm inspecting because I want to make sure that everything is good."
"You know, the dresses. 'Is everyone okay?' You know, they're standing there with no clothes. 'Is everybody okay?' And you see these incredible looking women, and so, I sort of get away with things like that. But no, I've been very good," he added.

Are your mental gymnastics working? Have you actually convinced yourself that Trump isn't a pervy old man? Or do you just not care?
