Why Donald Trump will emerge unscathed from latest sexual assault allegations

23 Juin, 2019, 04:28 | Auteur: Anatole Charbonneau

Carroll, who was 52 years old at the time of the alleged assault, makes this allegation in a book she has just published. "Like many women who are attacked", she writes, "when I had the most to say, I said the least".

I am astonished by what I'm about to write: I keep laughing.

"It should be sold in the fiction section", Trump said in a White House statement.

The allegation against Trump is included in Carroll's upcoming book about the "hideous men" the Elle magazine columnist says she has encountered throughout her life.

In March, a NY state appeals court ruled that Summer Zervos, a former contestant on Trump's reality TV show "The Apprentice" who accused him of unwanted kissing and groping, can move forward with her defamation lawsuit against him.

"I would find it disrespectful to the women who are down on the border who are being raped around the clock down there without any protection", Carroll told MSNBC host Lawrence O'Donnell when asked why she wouldn't press charges.

She continued: "The next moment, still wearing correct business attire, shirt, tie, suit jacket, overcoat, he opens the overcoat, unzips his trousers, and, forcing his fingers around my private area, thrusts his penis halfway - or completely, I'm not certain - inside me".

One friend warned her not to report the incident to police because his team of lawyers would "bury her".

In a statement, Donald Trump denied having ever met Carroll (despite having been photographed with her in the 1980s) and said she was simply trying to drum up publicity for her new book.

While Greenland is a big island filled with lots of ice, it is highly unusual for that much ice to be lost in the middle of June. This resulted in temperature rise, which was recorded as much as 40 degrees Fahrenheit above normal.

Harvey Weinstein was one of the few people in the entertainment industry who consistently helped create great roles for women.

NY magazine noted that Carroll is the 16th woman to accuse Trump of sexual misconduct since he ran for president.

In her new book, What Do We Need Men For? After what Carroll describes as "a colossal struggle" involving her stomping his feet with her high heels, hitting him with a free hand, and ultimately kneeing him off her, she says she was able to flee the dressing room after an encounter she says lasted about three minutes.

NY undercut the president's claim about never meeting Carroll with a photograph depicting him talking to her at a party in NY. She claims she told two friends about the alleged assault, but never went to police. Carroll makes the claim in a new memoir, which the White House calls "completely false and unrealistic". "I think she was married, as I read, I have no idea who she is, but she was married to an actually nice guy, Johnson, a newscaster". "All should condemn false accusations and any actual assault in the strongest possible terms", he said.

If Carroll manages to come forward with solid evidence to support her claim of rape, only then should we entertain it.

Carroll, like plenty of other people, seems to hold on to the idea that there must be something, surely, that can eventually puncture Trump's reputation and the bond he's forged with many in his base.

A representative of Moonves' said he "emphatically denies" Carroll's account.

He accused the publication of "peddling fake news".
