Did you hear the president of the United States has been credibly accused of rape by a prominent writer? You'd think it would be blasted all over the place in every paper and on every channel, but you know, nah. They have their "reasons." Specifically, the New York Times has its "reasons." They are stupid "reasons." Like shitty editor, lack of public editor, craven need to stay in power's good graces, craven need to ignore everything that didn't burst forth from the loins of the New York Times, etc.

But this post isn't about the New York Times. It's about President Accused Rapist rebutting allegations from E. Jean Carroll in a similar way he's rebutted rape and sexual assault allegations before. He of course didn't say "I would never do that to a woman!" because from what we have heard from TWENTY-TWO accusers, he definitely would do that to a woman. (Everybody counts up President Sexual Assault's sexual assaults differently. Vox includes him perving on the teen beauty queens. ABC in 2018 said "at least 16"; USA Today: "over a dozen," which we think means they didn't count it if he just kissed ladies on their ladymouths. Isn't that fun, how we parse the rapings and assaults and "misconducts"?) For Carroll, he told the Hill.TV that she just isn't his type, by which he means she's too ugly to rape:


"I'll say it with great respect: Number one, she's not my type. Number two, it never happened. It never happened, OK?" the president said while seated behind the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office.

He says it "with great respect," that she's too ugly to rape. Since Carroll made the accusations, Trump has also claimed he's never met her -- she, a longtime New York journalist at Esquire and advice columnist for Elle, he, a New York playboy who's always hung around the socialite crowd in a desperate bid for acceptance -- even though the New Yorker excerpt from Carroll's upcoming book where she made the accusation literally featured a pic of her with Trump in 1987. (The alleged rape happened in the mid-1990s.)

He told that lie again to Hill.TV:

"Totally lying. I don't know anything about her," he said. "I know nothing about this woman. I know nothing about her. She is — it's just a terrible thing that people can make statements like that."

Just a terrible thing! (When the victims point out their attackers publicly, is what he is saying.)

As we noted, this is not a new excuse for Trump. To the contrary, it seems to be his go-to. Remember Trump on the campaign trail in 2016?

"Believe me, she would not be my first choice, that I can tell you," Trump told supporters at a campaign event in 2016 after a woman accused him of putting his hand up her skirt while on an airplane. "You don't know. That would not be my first choice." As the crowd laughed, he said, "Check out her Facebook, you'll understand."

That was Jessica Leeds, who says Trump shoved his hand up her skirt on an airplane years ago. He said this about her after he saw her on TV, soon after she went public with her allegations:

"When you looked at that horrible woman last night," Trump said in an apparent reference to her appearance on CNN, "you said, I don't think so, I don't think so."

He said the same thing about Natasha Stoynoff, the People magazine writer who says Trump assaulted her at Mar-a-Lago in 2005, cramming his pig tongue down her throat once he got away from Melania, who was pregnant at the time. "SHE LIES! Look at her, I don't think so," Trump said.

He means she's too ugly to sexually assault. You know, in case you aren't catching the drift of Trump's go-to excuse for why he couldn't possibly have raped or sexually assaulted some of the 22 women who have accused him.

Of course, we have Trump on the record about how he feels about women he does not consider too homely for raping. He told Billy Bush he just grabs them by the pussy, and they let him, because he's a celebrity.

So that is a thing that happened. Because the president of the United States is literally garbage.

Here is E. Jean Carroll telling her story on CNN last night. We believe her.
