Donald Trump has come under new scrutiny this week after three women, Jessica Leeds, Kristin Anderson and Summer Zervos, claimed that they were sexually harassed by him in the past. The Clinton campaign has already capitalised on what appear to be very convenient allegations against their opponent. After all, Hillary is famous for her vehement insistence that all rape victims must be believed, unless of course they happen to be her husband’s victims. The fact that such decades-old allegations were revealed right at this moment, when Bill and Hillary’s associations with rape victims are also under public scrutiny, seems to be quite interesting for those of us who are intelligent and astute. Nevertheless, two women have come forward to announce to the world that they were indeed raped by Donald Trump.
Not so fast, Jessica, Kristen and Summer.
Sharp-eyed individuals have identified various inconsistencies with these newfound claims, the primary of which involves the peculiarity of how these claims were revealed at this particular time in history. The fact that Leeds was purportedly harassed in 1979 leads to the question as to why she has waited 37 years to have her big moment. Why not seek justice somewhere in the interim? A similar notion applies to Anderson, who claims that her ordeal occurred somewhere in the early 1990s. It is very interesting how these two women have waited for decades, and happen to choose this very moment, to make their claims.
But let’s suppose this was merely a coincidence. Other evidence, though, further debunks these accusations as merely lies made public to serve in the interests of the Clintons. Apart from the striking similarities between Leeds’ accusations and song lyrics, the Political Insider has found out that Boeing 707s, inside of which Leeds supposedly got harassed, did not exist in 1979. The aircraft type that did exist at that time, the 727, didn’t have armrests that could be adjusted, which further highlights the audacity of her claims as Trump apparently adjusted the armrest to “grope” her. Furthermore, Leeds has strong connections with the Democratic party, and her daughter was a Democrat activist who once met with vice president Joe Biden.
Leeds did admit that she kept her ordeal a secret because culture dictated the need for a woman to deal with it and move on. While this may have some ring of truth to it, why did she send an email to an editorial complaining about her “alpha male” husband? If culture expected women to keep quiet and accept their place as subordinates to men, then why did she write to the New York Times about her husband?
In addition, the New York Post reported on a British witness who was sitting directly across Trump and Leeds, who claims that Leeds’ accusations are completely false, and that it was she who was flirting with him. Apparently, Leeds went has far as asking Trump to marry her, which was followed by Trump excusing himself to go to the bathroom. Leeds did mention a man sitting across the aisle, which was presumably the British witness, who has funnily enough rejected her accusations in defence of Trump.
The case of Summer Zervos seems to be the most notable and intriguing in this crusade against destroying Trump’s reputation. The Daily Caller has discovered that “the former Apprentice star…sent an email to Trump’s assistant in April praising the GOP nominee”. This email has been released by the Trump campaign. Her first cousin has said that Zervos has a desire to be back on television, and thus has resorted to trying to defame Trump in order to steer public attention towards her, having already failed in her attempt to invite Trump to her restaurant. The email says “We hire a diverse crew and embrace anyone who is honest while working hard. Mr. Trump is cut from the same cloth.” Zervos also once said in an interview “I left admiring Donald Trump a lot more than when I arrived”. But now, the tables have turned and she is accusing him of sexually harassing her.
It’s quite clear that these freshly publicised allegations against Donald Trump are very inconsistent. Some of these claims have been refuted by witnesses who were then and there when these events took place. Other claims are rendered questionable, and probably false, when considering inconsistencies between how the “victims” describe Trump now and how they described him earlier. Most likely, the mainstream media is sensationalising these claims and maybe even fuelling them, in collaboration with the Clinton campaign, which is hardly surprising. The media has already stopped talking about the very strong rape accusations against Bill Clinton, so the smear campaign appears to be working.
