Good luck telling my grandmothers that...

Hope to God anyone tellin' them that had a running start, 'cause they'd have needed it. Or my Mom for that matter in the '50's...

Look - I'm very quick to criticize Donald Trump, but I'd take this article with a grain of salt - This testimony was taken during a nasty divorce with quite a tidy sum attached to the outcome (and I know fist hand, as I'm sure countless others do, that divorce proceedings can sometimes bring out the theatrics [and emotionally worst] in the best of us).

Ivana's camp, as noted in the article, also later claimed it wasn't rape, but more of an emotional violation - I'm not claiming you can't rape your spouse, that's a completely ridiculous stance, but rather, I wouldn't be quick to believe an obviously politically motivated article, even if I vehemently disagree politically (or whatever, really) with the target of the said article.

If it happened the way that it's described in the article then that is rape. However I expect this to make trump's approval ratings go higher since most of the republican base is still stuck in the 40s..back when wives were seen as property.


That is an extremely low blow... even for you.

Shame Shame

I have been waiting for the sex allegation against Trump. The same thing happened to Herman Cain when he was ahead of the GOP ordained front-runner. Anytime there is someone ahead of the 'official' pick for either party there is some sort of BS scandal to force the sheeple back in line.

After the Republicans finish with Trump you will see something happen to Bernie Sanders. They can't have the people backing any non-official candidates.

23 year old divorce drama TMZ type news.

Seems that Trump has a fine relationship with children of that marriage.

Would that be the case if allegations had any merit?

I'm no fan of Donald Trump. My impression of him will always be based on his divorce from Ivana.

I am 100% certain that she married him for the money, and I am 100% certain that he knew that. During the divorce, she was claiming all kinds of things to get more money out of the settlement. He was claiming that he was nearly bankrupt to try to lower his payout. I kind of felt they deserved each other.

Shortly after the divorce, he's somehow rich again and getting richer.

I really don't believe the rape story.

However, if the part about the scalp reduction surgery is true, then I am truly appalled. Somebody with his money could afford the best hair transplant surgery available. As a man with "thinning" hair, I'm offended. What a jerk.

Gawker is utter filth and ought to be banned as a source. Are you aware they are currently involved in a re-branding campaign after essentially engaging in blackmail for a homo-prostitute with Timmy ( tax cheat ) Gietner's brother?

Here is a better source:Not as much of a criminal click bait source

Also, Trump seems to be paying the Clinton foundation a lot of money which seems odd in that all of his recent gaffs serve to fuel the "opposition's" appeal to voters.

Donald Trump has spent years courting Hillary and other Dems

Clinton Foundation hangs on to donations from Donald Trump

He just seems like a patsy, but I could easily be miss reading the situation when he really is just a putz.

//EDIT//
PS Gawker's Jezebel has mocked domestic violence like this in the past
Have You Ever Beat Up A Boyfriend? Cause, Uh, We Have


According to a study of relationships that engage in nonreciprocal violence, a whopping 70% are perpetrated by women. So basically that means that girls are beating up their BFs and husbands and the dudes aren't fighting back. With Amy Winehouse busting open a can of whupass on her husband last week, we decided to conduct an informal survey of the Jezebels to see who's gotten violent with their men. After reviewing the answers, let's just say that it'd be wise to never ever # with us.


Thank you for at least acknowledging the horridness of your source, but they have frequently been factually incorrect and a simple google search will yield plenty of results.

Why do people listen to this clown... This isn't the first time he's run... He always polls well to start, then he has to answer questions and falls on his face. Just ignore him till he goes away again.

They already have tried it with Sanders. Don't you remember the Essay he wrote like 40 years ago that they dusted off from wherever and tried to slander him with??? It was only a couple months ago at most.

It was a sad attempt that failed to gain much ground.

I just want to throw this out there....


Spouses can be raped.

Just because you're married doesn't make rape, not rape.

If he or she does not want to have sex, and you force it.... that is rape. Regardless of your title.

The very fact his lawyers released a statement like they did, only reaffirms the character of him.

He and his type are the true Antichrist in this world. All ego, clothed in narcisism and greed. They have no empathy or care for anyonelse beyond themselves. They will tred on others and pay others to do so too if it lines their pockets or inflates their ego. People are liking this guy?

Please stop. This is the second thread today that had crap to do with yesterday. This a LONG time yesterday... if it's true. OK. I'll admit it right now. As A Canadian citizen I can run for Prez: See: Cruz. I once raped my left hand back in the 60's.


My apologies to rape victims. I'm not making light of you. I'm making light of this ridiculous process.


But Trep! It's what we do! It's a sport here you know that! If you can't drag someone through the mud, then first you must create the mud! Donald Trump is a most excellent target for this kind of talk.

(About the molestation of your hand.....gasps with laughter...... good one!)

Marital rape is illegal NOW. That wasn't always the case.........


States started in the mid-1970s and by 1993 marital rape became a crime in all 50 states, under ..... of husband and wife, whether common law or otherwise

Gawker ... didn't they turn over a new moral leaf lately? Or is it only when it comes to outing fellow members of the media soliciting gay sex from male escorts?

Ah, hypocrisy.

Warning: The article contains explicit language, in the form of threats directed against a reporter by Trump's lawyer, Michael Cohen.

gawker.com... dium=socialflow

Please note that the first one to attack the source earns my undying scorn. Yes, Gawker is often shady and morally dubious. But I've never seen them post anything factually incorrect, or at least wholly so.

Basically, the gist of the story is that a 1993 biography of The Donald revealed accusations from his ex-wife Ivana Trump that he forcibly raped her while the two were married.



After a painful scalp reduction surgery to remove a bald spot, Donald Trump confronted his then-wife, who had previously used the same plastic surgeon. [...] What followed was a “violent assault,” according to Lost Tycoon. Donald held back Ivana’s arms and began to pull out fistfuls of hair from her scalp, as if to mirror the pain he felt from his own operation. He tore off her clothes and unzipped his pants. “Then he jams his penis inside her for the first time in more than sixteen months. Ivana is terrified…It is a violent assault,” Hurt writes. “According to versions she repeats to some of her closest confidantes, ‘he raped me.’”


A reporter recently reached out Trump's camp for comment, and got the following inexplicable response from his lawyer:




Michael Cohen, special counsel at The Trump Organization, defended his boss, saying, “You’re talking about the front-runner for the GOP, presidential candidate, as well as private individual who never raped anybody. And, of course, understand that by the very definition, you can’t rape your spouse.” “It is true,” Cohen added. “You cannot rape your spouse. And there’s very clear case law.”


As well as some pretty vicious threats to the reporter in question.

So, what do you think? Ivana and Donald later came to some sort of consensus that what happened wasn't 'rape rape' and left the matter at that (with, I'm sure, an 'extra' in the divorce settlement), so it's not like anybody is going to be looking at charges against him. But do you think it will hit him in the polls?



Who knows? People same some nasty things during divorces, especially when there is a lot of money involved. It could be true or it could be a complete fabrication. OTOH, is this all they got--proceedings from a 25 year old nasty divorce?

It seems that digging through divorce proceedings is a standard DNC tactic--Jack Ryan dropped out of the senate race against Obama due to his divorce proceedings being spread about, and look at the pile of poo that resulted in.

Man, I guess he was having a really, really super- bad hair day. Of course it could have happened. He doesn't seem like a guy who tolerates frustration particularly well, and with his hair... well.... who knows.

This is one of the most contradictory statements I've ever seen... Gawker is the equivalent of the internet tabloids... Grade E reporting.

I don't like the Donald, in fact I despise him, but I refuse to take anything coming from the Gawker seriously.
