"so if some accuse he she will step down?"

Hey drunk, you dropped an important letter given that you can't manage proper sentences to begin with.

Does she have 19 accusers? Did she admit sexual harassment multiple times on radio or in semi private?

Franken and Conyers resigned on far less evidence, you racist halfwit.

Trump never admitted to any sexual harassment. False allegations like this will continue to discredit his accusers. Like the proven false accuser against Moore, the false accusers of Trump are politically motivated and thought they could get rich.

Step down? Trump is already as low as someone can get. I wish he'd step off.

Well, if Trump denies any sexual harassment, I suppose that's the end of it. Surely no president would lie so blatantly about the question of his being a slimy sexual predator. Indeed what president would admit to groping women against their will, and deny saying it?

Why should we take the word of all those Trump accusers over the denials of our commander-in-chief, when we know that a president cannot tell a lie? In keeping with tradition, President Trump must now chop down a cherry tree.

No Trump didn’t just admit to it, HE BRAGGED ABOUT IT!

Anyone who would brag about it is Sick, period.

Admissions are not admissions, I guess is the right wing talking point.

"Trump himself has bragged about exploiting his power as the then-owner of the pageants to force naked or half-dressed contestants to let him stare at them. He told Howard Stern in 2005 that he pretended to be checking on the progress of the show:

"'Well, I'll tell you the funniest is that before a show: I'll go backstage, and everyone's getting dressed, and everything else, and you know, no men are anywhere, and I'm allowed to go in because I'm the owner of the pageant and therefore I'm inspecting it. You know, I'm inspecting because I want to make sure that everything is good. You know, the dresses. "Is everyone OK?" You know, they're standing there with no clothes. "Is everybody OK?" And you see these incredible-looking women, and so, I sort of get away with things like that.'"

Mullah Moore didn't "generally" date or flirt with early, mid teen girls....

Mullah Moore didn't "generally" not win that Senate seat. He did not win it.

There's a slight difference.

Yes. Trump admitted to his cruel and vile predatory groping of women on national television before a open mic with an audience of 15 to 20 million listening.

Trump tried to claim is was just "lockerroom talk"

ROFL

Now he's lying about knowing and being in the company of those women nevermind there are loads of photos of Trump with the women.

She is using Hitler's playbook.

Hitler accused the Jews of stealing from Germans....then, with the accusation alone, many were arrested by the NAZI party.

TRUMP has probably come in contact with THOUSANDS of women, so it is hardly surprising that a few women would be offended in some way. Its mathematics.

Plus, unless TRUMP has a photographic memory, it would be impossible or for any celebrity to remember every encounter with other people that they had.

Surprise....some women like aggressive men, and would give signals that an aggressive approach is welcome.

Of course, other women would be highly offended. We don't know which category those women who TRUMP bragged about belonged OR did it even happen as he could have been making a false boast.

Touché! A Fair point. Politicians that went on the Howard Stern Show were much more careful with their words.

You are so very, very sick and ignorant, having the usual right wing blind spot around the notion of consent. You are not supposed to guess who want this "aggressive" approach (of sexual harassment or assault, as we are discussing.) You're supposed to ask first, you sick, stupid bigot.

You azz, if some right wing pustule like you says it's a fair point I had better re write in some way. In a way I don't want R. politicians to be more careful with their _actions_ around women, which is obviously the point. I want their careers to be destroyed by their _actions_ towards women, if not by their words towards them.

Good troll, though.

I sincerely hope you are party to the POS's defense team and you present your idea before the court as justification for the physical evidence

Actually, he was not bragging about groping women against their will; but about women letting him grope them, because he was the star.

Well, beauty competition involves other people assessing the appearance of competitors: body and face. It particularly pertains to the owner of Pageant, who decides whether competitor he is launching for beauty context, has chances of winning.

So circumstances are complex. They could be abused. But for women, who are very sensitive about being looked at, the simple way out is, to avoid such competitions, even when they think that they have the looks to win.
