The end of Donald Trump’s campaign is near. The Gothamist reports that ever since the release of audio tapes which show Trump admitting to sexual assault, women have been contacting one of America’s most prominent civil rights lawyers, Gloria Allred, in droves – to tell their stories of abuse at Trump’s hands.
Women’s rights specialist Allred, famed for taking on prominent targets like rapist Bill Cosby and pedophile Roman Polanski, and even Trump in the past (she forced him to change the Miss Universe rules so a transgender woman could compete), says that she has been “contacted by women who allege inappropriate contact by Mr. Trump.”
“If there is an unwanted or unconsented to touching of a person’s intimate parts such as the genital areas or a woman’s breasts, that could constitute a sexual assault or a sexual battery…I am disgusted by what Donald Trump said and admitted that he had done on that video. An apology is not enough” said Allred to the press.
Just last week, Allred issued a statement about Trump’s track record of assault accusations and well-documented sexism – as well as a bizarre personal anecdote that confirms what a pig he truly is:
We need a President who respects the rights of women in the workplace not someone who creates a hostile and sexist environment for women who work and not someone like Mr. Trump who believes pregnancy is an inconvenience for employers; and who enables sexism.
I call on Donald Trump to release all of his employees and former employees from their non-disclosure clauses so that they can tell the public what they suffered when they had the unfortunate experience of working for Donald Trump, and I urge him to promise not to retaliate against them if they tell the truth.
Donald Trump once made a remark to TMZ about me. He said “Gloria would be very very impressed” which TMZ suggested in the context of the interview with him meant that I would be impressed with his penis.
No Donald, I wouldn’t. What would impress me would be having Hillary Rodham Clinton in the White House, not a man who blatantly denigrates women in the workplace.
It is not clear as of yet if Allred is organizing legal action against Trump, but one thing is obvious: Donald Trump is a sexual predator and all his skeletons are being dragged out of the closet for all the public to see.
