It’s difficult to find anything surprising about Donald Trump these days. In addition to his racist and xenophobic statements, he’s made numerous statements about women and about rape victims in the past. Most of us are desensitized to Trump and his boorish behavior.
His ex-wife, Ivana, described a scene that would legally be defined as rape at the hands of Donald Trump. He famously, and disgustingly, has made statements about wanting to date his daughter, Ivanka, and that the biggest thing the two of them had in common was sex. He pondered his infant daughter, Tiffany’s, breasts in an interview.
Trump is named in a $125 million dollar sexual harassment lawsuit by a woman who claims he groped her, made sexual advances, and backed out of a business deal when she rejected him. He’s tweeted horrific views on rape that went viral and everyone saw them.
26,000 unreported sexual assults in the military-only 238 convictions. What did these geniuses expect when they put men & women together?

He supported Mike Tyson after he was convicted of rape and said that Tyson’s victim was an opportunist who “went to his hotel room of her own free will.” Trump is also linked to a man named Jerry Epstein, a convicted pedophile who is also linked to Bill Clinton.
What could Trump possibly do that would surprise any of us at this point?
Here is where the desensitization to Trump’s revolting words and abhorrent behavior ends
Being tied to Epstein is why Trump may be in trouble. Although Trump insists his only connection to Jerry Epstein was Epstein’s membership in Trump’s private Mar-A-Lago Club, a woman from Epstein’s past says they had a very different connection to one another.
A woman who is now in her mid-30s claims that Jerry Epstein, a billionaire and convicted pedophile who participated in the trafficking of underage girls, was also trafficked by Epstein and forced to have sex with many men over four years, one of whom she says was Donald Trump.
Radar Online obtained documents filed the alleged victim in a lawsuit for $100 million dollars. According to those documents:
She alleged that she was ‘fully warned on more than one occasion by both’ Trump and Epstein ‘that were she ever to reveal any of the details of the sexual and physical abuse that she had suffered as a sex slave’ that she “and her family would be in mortal danger.’
The woman describes being forced, along with a 12-year-old girl named only Maria Doe in the documents, to orally and manully stimulate Donald Trump and being shoved, hit, and raped by current GOP frontrunner in the presidential election. Once she claims was forced to perform sex acts with Maria Doe, after which Trump berated the two for their ‘poor sexual performance.’
Trump denied these claims in an exclusive interview with Radar Online, saying:
‘The allegations are not only categorically false, but disgusting at the highest level and clearly framed to solicit media attention or, perhaps, are simply politically motivated. There is absolutely no merit to these allegations. Period.’
Although Radar Online was the first to break the story, they now claim they have evidence that may prove the alleged victim’s story false. Much of that evidence seems circumstantial or just very flimsy, however. For instance, the site now says that after pouring through Epstein’s publicly released “little black book” that included the names of the adolescents he trafficked, including the 15-year-old whose rape he was convicted of, they could not find the name of the woman who filed the lawsuit.
Trump’s name was there, though.
