The real conspiracy angle here is probably the timing of the 'Arnold's love child' story.
Somebody must have been sitting on that one for the right moment, and then they busted it out to take attention away form the scrutiny on the

In this case no one is defending a rapist.
He is innocent until proven guilty.
Wake up from the court room tv show BS for a moment and come back to reality.
So a rapist is not a rapist when they rape somebody, they later become a rapist when a court of law agrees that they raped somebody?
Do defense attorneys only defend rapists if they lose their case? Can they win their case and still have been defending a rapist? Can truly guilty
people get away with crimes? Can truly innocent people be convicted?
A court of law is not life. Life is not a court of law.
He is LEGALLY innocent in a court of law until proven LEGALLY guilty.
Whether or not he is legally found guilty does not correlate 100% with whether or not he actually raped somebody.
In life, he is a rapist if and when he raped somebody, no matter whether any court of law agrees or not.
Similarly, in life, he is not a rapist if he did not rape anybody no matter what any court of law ever says about it.
Thus, if he is truly innocent, then nobody in this thread who is defending him is defending a rapist.
Thus, if he is truly guilty, then EVERYONE in this thread who is defending him is defending a rapist.
How do I feel about it?
This guy will get very close to having the best possible legal defense team on the planet earth.
His team are already manipulating the media more than anybody. In fact, they are being paid lots and lots of money already to do that as part of his
defense. Unless some other person or faction is spending money to do this sort of thing for their own agenda(and what evidence of that is there?),
then it's most likely that his team is by far the largest and most active on the game board.
We are already seeing many common tactics which academics have long been aware of, for example as posted in a link a few posts up by Aeons.
Everyone ought to know that rich and powerful assholes/sociopaths do do this sort of thing...'you are nothing, nobody will believe you.'
That is also why other women wait to come forward until somebody else has taken the first step. The first step is the scariest because the fear is
that help and attention will never arrive.
When there is media attention, there is the presumption of safety and protection, that he can't use his power and money and influence to crush
somebody who is already in the public eye.
Or...just watch a few episodes of "Cheaters" if you don't believe that there are lots and lots and lots of people who are capable of keeping up a
facade of innocence and who will just lie lie lie lie lie and never drop the facade no matter how busted they are. There is a very ordinary and common
sort of narcissism you see a lot when you watch liars in action.
