How about you stop deflecting from Trump and his self admitted tendency to sexually assault women because of his privileged position? This thread isn't about Clinton, Cosby or Weinstein.

Ho-hum. The setup in the OP is the old Groucho Marx bit about when did you stop beating your wife?


Ivana Trump has testified to spousal abuse, so there goes that comparison out the window!


Hurt obtained a copy of her sworn divorce deposition, from 1990, in which she stated that, the previous year, her husband had raped her in a fit of rage. In Hurt’s account, Trump was furious that a “scalp reduction” operation he’d undergone to eliminate a bald spot had been unexpectedly painful. Ivana had recommended the plastic surgeon. In retaliation, Hurt wrote, Trump yanked out a handful of his wife’s hair, and then forced himself on her sexually. Afterward, according to the book, she spent the night locked in a bedroom, crying; in the morning, Trump asked her, “with menacing casualness, ‘Does it hurt?’ ” Trump has denied both the rape allegation and the suggestion that he had a scalp-reduction procedure. Hurt said that the incident, which is detailed in Ivana’s deposition, was confirmed by two of her friends.

Hurt held on to his copy of Ivana’s sealed deposition for years. “It was sworn testimony,”

That, I can understand. Your values, and sense of good and bad are different than his. I can follow that logic. You don't like him personally. That's different than taking unproven accusations, and purporting them as fact.


even when we don't get into the allegations of assault, the way he runs his mouth is terrible and conservatives do tend to defend those comments as much as any of the other dumb things he says. not a good look for y'all.

I agree he comes close to crossing the line, even straddles it at times. Some would say that's refreshing that at least he owns it.

Personally, I'll gladly accept the "warts" because a hard ass is what it's going to take to change the course of the country, and I don't like the direction it has taken the last couple decades. The smooth talking professional politicians need to be taken down a peg and remember they serve the ppl. That's not going to happen with a Hillary, or any other establishment pol.

Are you happy with the country's direction prior to Trump? Honestly happy with it? Do you think it's sustainable the way it was? I'm not sure Trump can do anything either, but we'll see.

That look she gives him.

I actually think she seems ok.

I have heard him talking about her before and I think that poor women lives in fear.

i was happy with the general direction, yes. entirely happy with everything? of course not. i just don't see trump pushing things in a good direction at all. he barely has any idea what he's doing and contradicts himself constantly. he's not a leader.

That kind of sums up the entire political establishment don't you think?

Its not a popular view I know, but I do think that Obama was a small glimmer of something decent but over the last few decades its gone from bad to worse.

With all do respect.

What was so good about Obama policy that you are missing now?

Its going way off topic but all I will say is that there were several policy area's that I agreed with him on.

There were also quite a few that I did not agree with so much which I have posted on in the past.

probably best for thread continuity that I leave it at that.

Fair enough.

Another topic maybe. Discussion does not need closed doors.

And later recanted. So if submitted would be perjury. Any reason it was left sealed and not submitted? Cross examination problem perhaps?

The problem with the white knighting is lumping everyone to a standard that might be below an individual woman’s standard for what is harassment, assault, verbal abuse, etc. Standards can vary by case within an individual as well.

For example this person may not accept you or I saying hello twice.

(Insert pic of triggered girl)

This person might be offended if you do not put your arm on her shoulder as in a side by side hug when saying hello.

(Insert pic of Katy Perry)

Or just as possible, the exact opposite would be the case depending on you or me as to what is acceptable. Me, I don’t try to judge what I am not a part of. I am not Trump so I don’t know what he has or has not done. I am also not any of these women so I have no idea as to their standards. I can tell you that fame (on any level) moves goal posts. You would not believe things that have been said to me in private. And the flexibility of standards in order to “compete” all without a word or action that would indicate such an event.


But all that aside, kerosene is pretty effective.

As so far nothing seems to stick direclty to Trump .. there is now plan B:

First create outrage, sacrifice one of your own, everybody upset? > then shift the focus to potus (rhyme intended)

While keeping on creating division ans suspicion.

She did not recant. She down played the significance of her husband raping her, after she got her divorce settlement.


The divorce was granted on the grounds of “cruel and inhuman treatment” of Ivana. She also has been issued a gag order that bars her from discussing her marriage to Trump without his permission.

Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen, responding to The Daily Beast’s questions about the rape allegations, said that “you cannot rape your spouse” and threatened reporter Tim Mak.
