Trump Used Twitter to Try and Disprove a Woman Accusing Him of Harassment

Adding to the already 19 women who have come forward to accuse our esteemed and dignified president Donald Trump of sexual misconduct and assault, Rachel Crooks alleges that the Grab-em-by-the-pussy president forcibly kissed her for about two minutes while stuck inside an elevator with her in Trump Tower. She was, at the time, a secretary for Trump.

In an article in The Washington Post, Crook says “He started kissing me on one cheek, then the other cheek. He was talking to me in between kisses, asking where I was from, or if I wanted to be a model. He wouldn’t let go of my hand, and then he went right in and started kissing me on the lips.”

Crooks announced this month that she would be running for a seat in the Ohio legislature, and vows to continue telling her story. “I just want people to listen,” Crooks said. “How many women have to come forward? What will it take to get a response?”

On Tuesday, President Trump responded to the accusations via twitter (of course). He tweeted that he does not know Crooks and “to the best of [his] knowledge, never met” her. He goes on to say that the incident “Never happened!” He claims that all his accusers are doing so for a pay off, and are simply lying.

Trump has gleefully run with the story that broke In December in which attorney Lisa Bloom acknowledged setting up a GoFundMe and arranging for donations to pay off the mortgage of a separate Trump accuser, Jill Harth. “I lost jobs for the whole year of 2016,” Harth told The Hill. “I was so upset I couldn’t focus. I lost friends, clients — that donation helped me to survive. They are making it sound like this was all a plot for money. That is not true.”

Although it is true that the accusations are as of yet unproven, Trump is the man who said: “You know, I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything.” He is being accused of forcible kissing and he himself admitted to forcibly kissing women because, after all, “you can do anything.”

Can’t we just stop using the word “allegedly” at this point?…
