CNN Bites On Trump Rape Claim After Sunday Shows Mostly Ignore

Added 06-24-19 03:02:02pm EST - “NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN and Fox and NBC on Sunday ignored new claims by a 76-year-old woman who says Donald Trump raped her 23 years ago. But CNN jumped on the story on Monday, sitting down for a lengthy interview with the new accuser.…” -


Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From “CNN Bites On Trump Rape Claim After Sunday Shows Mostly Ignore”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Carroll made the allegations for the first time in a New York magazine article, in which she said she has been sexually assaulted numerous times by, as she says, a “cavalcade of 21 assholes.”

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.”

For more than 20 minutes, CNN host Alisyn Camerota was sympathetic, taking Carroll’s side — although the alleged victim offered no proof.

“You were engaging in this banter, as I think many of us would, because you didn’t know what violence was about to unfold and you could never have known that,” CAmerota said.
