Despite the 2005 video in which Donald Trump bragged about groping and kissing women without their consent, Trump spent Thursday denying the accounts of women who said he groped or kissed them without their consent.
After two women told their stories in a New York Times article Wednesday, Trump’s attorney threatened a lawsuit, calling the story libelous. The Times’ response on Thursday? Bring it.
“Mr. Trump has bragged about his non-consensual sexual touching of women. He has bragged about intruding on beauty pageant contestants in their dressing rooms. He acquiesced to a radio hosts’ request to discuss Mr. Trump’s own daughter as a ‘piece of ass,’” David McCraw, the newspaper’s attorney, said in a letter.
