Follow-Up: President Trump Responds To Writer’s Rape Accusation

President Trump, during an interview with The Hill, was asked about the recent rape allegation made by writer E. Jean Carroll:

“I’ll say it with great respect: Number one, she’s not my type. Number two, it never happened. It never happened, OK?” the president said while seated behind the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office.

When asked if Carroll was lying, Trump on Monday repeated his assertion that he had never met her.

“Totally lying. I don’t know anything about her,” he said. “I know nothing about this woman. I know nothing about her. She is — it’s just a terrible thing that people can make statements like that.”

If it were any other president facing an accusation of rape, I would think it bizarre of him to use his accuser’s looks to bolster his claims of innocence. How could I possibly be guilty? I mean, have you seen her?? But given that it’s Trump we’re talking about, and given that we’ve been down this rabbit hole for two years now, it’s actually the exact sort of thing I would expect him to say.

  1. Did you see her on CNN with Cooper last night. I kinda agree with Trump, she’s a mess.

  3. @Dana did you see the other one she did where she was asked if she would press charges, even explained to her that De Blasio said he’d personally lead the investigation, and she said no? In both interviews she comes across as either intoxicated or not all entirely there. I don’t see her claims as credible.
