Living well is the best revenge. A significant group of women came out to accuse Donald Trump of sexually molesting them prior to the 2016 presidential election. For a variety of reasons, Trump won anyway, but one of those women has been getting sweet revenge.

Ph.D. candidate from Ohio, Rachel Crooks, said that Trump kissed her on the cheeks and lips against her will on an elevator in 2005. She was just 22-years-old at the time and working as a receptionist in the New York Trump Tower. The president denied her allegations.

As a result, Crooks decided to run for office. Better yet, President Barack Obama just endorsed the 35-year-old woman in her run for the Ohio House of Representatives, District 88. She said it was an “incredible honor,” Bustle reported:

‘Having my campaign endorsed by President Obama, who himself once served in the state legislature, is an incredible honor,” Crooks says in an email to Bustle. “He is a man of integrity who served our country honorably for eight years, and now continues to inspire us with calls for hope and unity. I share his progressive values and his vision for a government that reflects the people it serves. As state representative, I will work hard to advocate for all Ohioans and make positive changes for the people in my district.’

President Obama has been on the campaign trail for the 2018 midterm elections and has endorsed hundreds of Democratic candidates. He tweeted “they deserve your vote:”

‘Today, I’m proud to endorse even more Democratic candidates who aren’t just running against something, but for something — to expand opportunity for all os us and to restore dignity, honor, and compassion to public service. They deserve your vote.’

During the 2016 presidential campaign, she told The New York Times her story just days following the infamous Access Hollywood tape. That was when he bragged about attacking women, to “grab them by the p*ssy.”

Crooks was the first person in her family to graduate from college. Now, she is using POTUS’ words against him in one of her campaign ads:

‘We remember right where we were the first time we heard that voice. Like every woman, I was disgusted. But for me, it was personal. Mine was a story all too common for women. So I had a choice to make. I could either keep quiet or speak up. I spoke up. I said #MeToo.’

The candidate went up against the leader of the free world and said:

‘I’m not afraid to speak up for what’s right even when it’s against one of the most powerful men in the world. Watch my bio video, find out what I stand for, and please contribute to my campaign to help me represent HD 88 in the Ohio House. Donate here.’

She told Rolling Stone:

‘You start to feel that people are looking to you, and you have this responsibility. I decided to take that on.’

Crooks was uncontested in her Democratic primary last May. She has been eager to take on the incumbent, Bill Reineke (R) in a district that went full force behind the man now sitting in the Oval Office.
