New Rape Accusation Highlights Trump’s Alleged Pattern Of Sexual Assault

E. Jean Carroll is the, at least, 16th woman who has accused President Trump of sexual assault. The story has the same pattern of behavior as many others.

Well-regarded advice columnist and writer E. Jean Carroll just published a profound article. In her piece that is presented on the cover of New York Magazine, Carroll chronicles the stories of several “hideous men” who have allegedly sexually assaulted her – including Donald Trump.

The New York Magazine’s Intelligencer succinctly summarizes the alleged assault on the then-23-year-old Carroll:

When Carroll meets Donald Trump in Bergdorf Goodman, the encounter starts as a friendly one. Trump recognizes her as “that advice lady”; Carroll recognizes him as “that real-estate tycoon.” Trump tells Carroll that he’s there to buy a gift for “a girl,” and though we don’t learn the identity of this mystery woman, Carroll places the ensuing incident in late 1995 or early 1996, during which time Trump was married to Marla Maples.

When Trump asks Carroll to advise him on what to buy, she agrees, and the two eventually make their way to the lingerie section. Trump suggests a lace bodysuit and encourages Carroll to try it on; she, deflecting, jokingly suggests that he try it on instead. After they reach the dressing rooms, events turn violent. In Carroll’s account, Trump shoves her against a wall inside a dressing room, pulls down her tights, and, “forcing his fingers around my private area, thrusts his penis halfway — or completely, I’m not certain — inside me.”

New York Magazine corroborated Carroll’s claim that she disclosed the alleged assault to two of her friends. This brings President Trump’s sexual misconduct allegations to a total of 24, according to Business Insider. The allegations range from sexual harassment to groping. 16 of the 24 are sexual assault allegations.

President Trump infamously bragged about sexual assault in the Access Holywood tape that was released just before the 2016 election.

Whether this new allegation will factor into the voting decisions of his supporters is unclear, but given the fact they elected him in spite of his other allegations, and the GOP’s reaction to Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s allegations, may tell you all you need to know.
