So a third woman has come forward to accuse Donald Trump of sexual harassment. I think we need to start paying attention to this.

Courtesy of Raw Story:

On Wednesday, in the midst of the Republican National Convention, new allegations emerged of sexual assault committed by Donald Trump. This is the third woman who has accused the GOP presidential nominee of sexual assault. 

The latest allegations of unwanted sexual contact by Trump come from Jill Harth, a makeup artist and business associate of the billionaire in the early 1990s. According to Harth, Trump sexually harassed her on numerous occasions, including cornering her in his daughter Ivanka’s bedroom and attempting to have sex with her. In 1997, Harth filed a lawsuit detailing Trump’s alleged repeated efforts to force her to have sex with him, as well as a number of other outrageous and inappropriate behaviors. 

Harth, who gave an interview to the Guardian earlier this week, says she first met Trump back in 1992, when she and her business partner and then boyfriend George Houraney were trying to recruit Trump as a partner in their beauty pageant event. The New York Times cites a 1996 deposition in which Harth describes their first meeting with Trump, when Houraney gave a business presentation to woo Trump into becoming a financial backer of the project. According to Harth, that marked the first of Trump’s many unwanted sexual advances. 

'Donald Trump stared at me throughout that meeting. He stared at me even while George was giving his presentation…In the middle of it he says to George, “Are you sleeping with her?” Meaning me. And George looked a little shocked and he said, “Well, yeah.” And he goes, “Well, for the weekend or what?”'

In Harth’s complaint, she says that at a dinner meeting at the Plaza Hotel the following night, Trump groped her under the table repeatedly, violating her “‘physical and mental integrity’ by attempting to touch [her] private parts.” The suit goes on to state that Trump introduced Harth to Plaza Hotel staff as his “new girlfriend” and, after a series of lewd comments about women, blurted out to Houraney, “You know, there’s going to be a problem. I’m very attracted to your girlfriend.”

According to this woman, Jill Harth, Trump refused to take "go to hell" for an answer and kept right on  sexually harassing her, including one incident inside of Ivanka's bedroom.

Eeeew!

The Raw Story article goes on to point out that Trump is already being accused of raping a 13 year old girl, and then of course there is that story about Ivana.

Look, as I have said before, often times powerful people are unjustly accused of doing terrible things, for all kinds of reasons, mostly money.

However there is a pattern here concerning how Trump treats women which certainly suggests that he thinks they are only good for a couple of things, and being equal to men is certainly not one of them.

In that light the idea that the thinks he can have his way with them, despite their protestations to the contrary does not seem that far fetched.

After all remember this from the convention?
Yeah, like I said I think we all need to start paying attention to these stories.

  1. The msm has been warned by their bosses that all hell will break loose if they actually treat this for what it is--absolutely effing scary and horrendous. Its not the kind of story they want in their ratings bonanza.

    And yes, the Ivanka thing is way creepy. Has been for a long time.

    We are just starting to see what a nightmare working in a culture of sexual harrasment and abuse at Fox has wrought. But Its still somewhat amazing to me that they are ignoring Trump's predatory behavior. If news got out that Barack Obama had whistled at a woman when he was a teenager--that would have ended his campaign in 2008. And we all know that.

    4:36 very good!

    Trump looked too comfortable with his daughter, like touching her, like that was considered between the two.

    It would not surprise me that given what we know about their finances, basically that they are broke and are in financial hock to the Russians, that they will do what it takes to maintain the pretense of wealth. Their "world" has it's own morals and values just to stay alive.

      I was thinking that too.

      I don't think trump could handle not being thought of as rich or not having access to expensive things and the perks such as a young wife. I don't think the kids could handle the embarrassment because they would be ejected from their 1 percenter social world. These are scary kids no matter how attractive from plastic surgery they may appear to be. The kids will sacrifice their souls and equally if not are more dangerous.

      When I was in the military, we had training to handle situations where an individual played on your vulnerabilities. Closeted gays were often victims of blackmail in exchange for information. Trump's Russian payday loans will compromise our country.

    It would not surprise me at all if we find out Trump is serial rapist. After all rape is about power and humiliation not sex. Little Donnie sure feels inadequate and insecure about his manhood and he definitely has underlying anger and power issues with women

    He is supposedly wealthy or so he continually tells us, so it would be very easy to first threaten to “destroy” them if they talk or if need be, pay them off.

    Independent:
    Ivanka Trump's best-selling fashion line is manufactured in China and Vietnam

    Exclusive: Not a single Ivanka Trump item at Macy's flagship store was produced in the US

    Yet many will be surprised to learn that the vast majority of Ms Trump’s clothes are not manufactured in US, but in China and Vietnam, two countries under the spotlight for human rights abuses and poor labour conditions. Some of the items are labelled simply as “imported”.

    An inspection by The Independent of more than 25 different items of Ms Trump’s range at the Macy’s flagship store in New York city, found not a single one was produced in the US. A sales assistant confirmed that no items in the collection were made at home.

    A number of commentators have favourably reflected on how Ms Trump used her moment in the spotlight last week in Cleveland to promote her own line of products, which includes clothing, accessories, shoes and fragrances. The day after the speech, she tweeted: “Shop Ivanka’s look from her #RNC speech.” ...

    While Mr Trump’s official campaign merchandise is produced in the US, it was reported earlier this year that his own line of clothing, which includes suits and ties, are made in China and Bangladesh....

      He is using the excuse of trade agreements as to why companies are outsourcing.

      When in reality it is the CEOs that are greedy shipping the jobs overseas and Trump is not going to change that.

    Lawsuit Charges Donald Trump with Raping a 13-Year-Old Girl

    ... I traveled by bus to New York City in June 1994 in the hope of starting a modeling career. I went to several modeling agencies but was told that I needed to put together a modeling portfolio before I would be considered. I then went to the Port Authority in New York City to start to make my way back home. There I met a woman who introduced herself to me as Tiffany. She told me about the parties and said that, if I would join her at the parties, I would be introduced to people who could get me into the modeling profession. Tiffany also told me I would be paid for attending.

    The parties were held at a New York City residence that was being used by Defendant Jeffrey Epstein. Each of the parties had other minor females and a number of guests of Mr. Epstein, including Defendant Donald Trump at four of the parties I attended. I understood that both Mr. Trump and Mr. Epstein knew I was 13 years old.

    Defendant Trump had sexual contact with me at four different parties in the summer of 1994. On the fourth and fnial sexual encounter with Defendant Trump, Defendant Trump tied me to a bed, exposed himself to me, and then proceeded to forcibly rape me. During the course of this savage sexual attack, I loudly pleaded with Defendant Trump to stop but he did not. Defendant Trump responded to my pleas by violently striking me in the face with his open hand and screaming that he would do whatever he wanted,

    Immediately following this rape, Defendant Trump threatened me that, were I ever to reveal any of the details of Defendant Trump's sexual and physical abuse of me, my family and I wold be physically harmed if not killed.

    The filing also included a statement from "Tiffany Doe" (i.e., the woman referenced in plaintiff's statement above who brought her to the parties) attesting that:

    I personally witnessed four sexual encounters that the Plaintiff was forced to have with Mr. Trump during this period, including the fourth of these encounters where Mr. Trump forcibly raped her despite her pleas to stop.

    I personally witnessed the one occasion where Mr. Trump forced the Plaintiff and a 12-year-old female named Maria [to] perform oral sex on Mr. Trump and witnessed his physical abuse of both minors when they finished the act.

    It was my job to personally witness and supervise encounters between the underage girls that Mr. Epstein hired and his guests.
    A video reportedly featuring "Katie Johnson" (her identity hidden through the use of facial pixillation, a long blonde wig, and an electronic voice distorter) appeared online, in which she graphically described giving Donald Trump a hand job and being raped by him...
