Doesn't anyone think it's odd that the rape claims roll in a month before election day? 

 

he's been dodging sexual assault claims since the early 90s. this is not a new thing.

rize, maybe you should read again what the one woman who replied in this thread had to say... and also, like creeper said, this is nothing new for Trump. women who are victims aremore often than not scared to out the offender, which is why for instance it took so long for Cosby's wrongdoings to come to light.

whether you see it or not, Trump's language is entirely different from locker room/crude, disrespectful sex talk about women. he has humorized sexually assualting women with his language. like, those are the words he used and the meanings they have in the sentences he arranged them in. you are starting to remind me of Trump's own tendency of rejecting "the very idea that the point of language is to describe reality.”

It's foolish to think that Trump meant that women let him do things to them because they were so attracted to him. You'd be hard-pressed to find a woman who is really attracted to him.

 

No, he gets to have his way with women because his victims feel a random woman won't be believed or taken seriously, and no good would come of them complaining. The same reason so many of Bill Cosby's accusers stayed silent for so long.

 

It's nice to see a Democrat winning this, but it's about as satisfying as seeing a high school basketball hotshot dunk on a Special Olympics kid.

I don't doubt for a second that the release of the bus video was specifically timed to be late in the race to ensure maximum damage, but it doesn't mean it should be written off completely.

I'm pretty sure it was timed (though I have no evidence).  All candidates (and their 'friends') do this kind of thing.  And you're right it shouldn't be dismissed.

It most certainly was. As for all these new allegations, it makes total sense. When that asshole is on TV claiming nobody respect women more than him he had it coming.

Oh I see what I just did there

It doesn't really matter if it's timed or not (which it obviously is). To succeed at "business" (aka bullying people out of money) the way that Trump has you need to be a delusional narcissist who "knows" that what you do is right. His remarks tell me that he's definitely into intimidating people into doing what he wants them to do, including having sex with him. People are attracted to power and confidence and can find themselves being financially and sexually abused as "punishment" for giving attention to someone like Trump. Grade A turd of a human.

Like I said before, if the opposing candidate cannot beat Trump by at least 20 points then we should all be very cautious about the future of our country. Dark and gritty Idiocracy remake.

To me Trump is like that little defenseless blob of malice and spite that you find out was the actual evil leader and not the really tough boss you just beat and you're like "damn all this time he was being controlled by this thing" and you get into a battle with it and has no real attacks, just shit like "Influence lvl 9" and "Trump made an off-putting sound" when it wastes a turn. The event boss you're not supposed to lose at, but somehow the Republican party did and now the Democrats found a way to actually take damage from it and we're all sitting here like "Dude Hillary stop using Steal on it, it has no items, use your attacks since he has barely any HP and no way to defend"!

I'm aware of 2 such claims in the 90's and his divorce case.  I mentioned them in the post I made that started this shit storm.

The silent victim thing is a real thing, but why wait until now?  Trump has been on trial for a good solid year now and had already been labeled a sexist womanizer.  Any media organization would have killed someone for a Trump sexual assault story a year ago.  It makes sense for political opponents with damaging tapes to hold them back, but it doesn't make sense for independent victims to hold back until now.

One last post because I'm an idiot.

Reading all the articles about how the tape was discovered and leaked, and then how the women started coming forward, it's pretty clear how things went down.

-The Apprentice employees are interviewed, publicizing juicy bits of Trump’s lewd and sexist behavior (no tapes, just personal accounts)
-Access Hollywood producer realizes “Hey, Trump was on the show 10 years ago with Billy Bush, I wonder if he said anything like that on those tapes?”
-Access Hollywood and NBC screw around for a couple of days trying to figure out how to do the story, including their worrying about legal repurcutions (correctly or not. it doesn’t matter).
-Someone at Access Hollywood gets impatient that nothing is being done, so they leak the tape to the Washington Post
-Washington Post publishes story almost immediately
-Trump says on national tv in front of 60-80 million (?) people that he never assaulted anyone.
-Women sit up on their couches and say, hey, bullshit!
-One woman tells her story.
-Another woman tells her story.
-More women tell their stories.

Or you can choose to believe that Trump is just a manly man who brags falsely about assaulting women (because all real men do that) and all these women are just liars.

Your choice.

Can I ask you a personal question Rize? Do you have anybody in your life who has been molested rape or sexually assaulted? Because you give off the impression you are not close with anybody who has shared their story with you.

I have talked about on molested on here before and I'm comfortable talking about what little I remember now about it. But that's just the way I'm handling it. There's a completely different Power Dynamic at play with these situations we're discussing.

I've said this to others before but people need to speak up and share their stories. It's incredibly difficult, I have no idea what it is to be raped. (Well beyond my personal experience if you want to call it that). Or being a woman . After hearing some stories from people close to me it is certainly opened my eyes. I wouldn't put anything past a man or even some women at this point
