CNN: Two Additional Women Accuse Trump of Sexual Assault

Mod: It is getting hard to keep track of how many women have now gone public with their claims of being assaulted by an aggressively romantic Donald Trump. It seems like every time you turn on your favorite cable news channel there are disturbing reports about more accusations  Here is the latest account from CNN (link):

Two Additional Women Accuse Trump of Sexual Assault - Two additional women on Friday stepped forward to accuse Donald Trump of sexually assaulting them, the latest revelations to rock the GOP nominee's campaign.

One woman alleged that Trump slid his fingers under her skirt in the early 1990s. Another, a former "Apprentice" contestant, said Trump grabbed her breast and kissed her aggressively in 2007.

Kristin Anderson and Summer Zervos told their accounts separately.

Anderson, now a 46-year-old photographer living in California, told CNN's Anderson Cooper that she was sitting with friends at a Manhattan nightclub in the early 1990s when suddenly a man put his hand up her skirt. Moments afterward, she said she recognized the man to be Trump. The two had not spoken or met before the incident occurred, Anderson said.

She first made the allegations to The Washington Post, which reported her claim that Trump touched her vagina.

"He just stuck his hand up my skirt. We just went off the rest of our night," Anderson said. "I pushed him off and I moved away and I sort of didn't ponder it for that long ... He's (denying it) and there are a ton of women saying yes, and more will come out."

When asked if she thought it was assault by Trump at the time, she said no.

"No, I didn't think of it that way, no. But assault in my mind meant something else. Hitting is assault. I was very unaware of mental abuse, manipulation, bullying, that is just straight-up bullying."

"Here's a man who thinks he can do whatever he wants. And deny it. And get away with it," she added.

Zervos claims Trump kissed her twice on the lips during a lunch meeting in his New York City office. On a separate occasion in Beverly Hills, she alleges he kissed her aggressively and touched her breast.

She later pursued a job within the Trump Organization and says Trump asked her to stop calling him.

The former "Apprentice" contestant shared her story in a press conference that was organized by her lawyer Gloria Allred, a women's rights attorney and activist who has represented other women in high-profile sexual assault cases.

Former Trump Employee: I 'Absolutely' Believe Sexual Misconduct Allegations (Talking Points Memo link): Barbara Res, a construction executive who worked for Donald Trump for 18 years, told CNN on Thursday morning that based on her observations of Trump throughout her time working for him, she believes the sexual misconduct accusations against Trump that surfaced this week.

"I do believe it. Yes, absolutely," she said on CNN's "New Day," when asked if she believes the allegations.

Res said she "saw him be aggressive in business, and I saw him throw his weight around and use the fact that he had power."

"And I think assault —sexual assault and sexual harassment are really about the abuse of power — 'I can do this to you because I am who I am.' And I do think it went to his head. So much else went to his head that it does make sense to me that he would do something like that."

She said that she had a largely positive experience with Trump and that he treated her like a man for the most part. But she said that Trump gradually became more sexist and recounted one experience when Trump leered at her.

"I worked for him a while ago, and when we started out he was respectful of women," Res told CNN. "He respected and listened to us, and I never saw him comport himself in such a way that, you know, you would turn around and say, that was sexist."

But Res said that eventually, Trump "started asking about women in a different way."

  4. Even Al Gore has been accused of these things and nothing happened. Same with Clinton-oh he got impeached-real penalty there for him, and disbarred. Didn't stop him from making money. Seems it's the easiest accusation to make and the hardest to prove or disprove. At least Lewinski had her dress.

    1. "Ladies man"?
      JFK and Bill Clinton were (maybe Clinton still is) lousy men in terms of fidelity and genuine respect for women. But you get the feeling that they wouldn't force women or assault them. Trump? Don't leave him alone with any female.

    5. Anybody got a guess on what it is about Trump that inspires this absolutely wacky devotion? Is it some father figure who's going to rescue, and his most passionate devotees are from abused backgrounds, so it's okay if Dad is a disgusting human being? Or is it that a rich Grandfather will take care of all your woes, or what?
      I just can't figure out what the emotions are that make Trump supporters cling to him while ignoring who he is.

    Does anyone know why the charge for overage in Tier 1 is so much more than the usage charge in Tier 2?

    1. The penalty is based on the Tier 1 rate. I think it is 10 times the Tier 1 rate. So if you go over your allocation by 4 units it is calculated as. 4 units x 10 times the Tier 1 rate. You get fu%%%% without even being kissed. Thank you city council.

  11. The Clinton machine is out grabbing more cash to pay for her 200; plus staff. She staying down low; because the WikiLinks are flushing her out to the public. She also requires time to memorize the questions and answers than will be asked at the Wednesday Forum. Slick Willie must be her new go between for that hussel. The DNC is fresh out of lap dogs for the Queen B*%#@.

    2. To me, Trump represents the biggest threat to this country than we've seen in many years. When have we ever had a presidential candidate welcome a foreign country to spy on the United States, I for one sure hope he isn't elected.
