The president is a huge fan of women. His only downfall, where women are concerned, is that he has zero respect for them, and views them as pawns in his weird sexual games. In the past, the president has bragged about violating women, even going as far as to admit on a hidden mic that he groped a woman’s genitals without her permission.
So when Trump was accused of planting an unwanted kiss on an unsuspecting staffer, the world went utterly berserk, and rightfully so. Should Trump ever be allowed alone with a female? We are wagering a big NO on that one.
The news broke as word of a new lawsuit against the president via one of his staffers went viral. According to Washington Post:
“A staffer on Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign says he kissed her without her consent at a small gathering of supporters before a Florida rally, an interaction that she alleges in a new lawsuit still causes her anguish.”
“In interviews with The Washington Post, and in the lawsuit, Alva Johnson said Trump grabbed her hand and leaned in to kiss her on the lips as he exited an RV outside the rally in Tampa on Aug. 24, 2016. Johnson said she turned her head and the unwanted kiss landed on the side of her mouth, which she called “super-creepy and inappropriate.””
The woman in question says, “I immediately felt violated because I wasn’t expecting it or wanting it. I can still see his lips coming straight for my face.”
Can you imagine?
The White House says that the claims are absurd, and of course they are, given the president’s track record of bragging about violating women using his fame.
“Johnson said she told her boyfriend, mother and stepfather about the incident later that day, an account all three confirmed to The Post. Two months later, Johnson consulted a Florida attorney about the unwanted kiss; he gave The Post text messages showing that he considered her “credible” but did not take her case for business reasons. The attorney gave Johnson the name of a therapist, whose notes, which The Post reviewed, reference an unspecified event during the campaign that had left her distraught.”
Sarah Sanders addressed the allegations from the White House, saying, “This never happened and is directly contradicted by multiple highly credible eye witness accounts.” She gave no real information as to who those eyewitnesses are or what they saw.
Johnson claims that there were, in fact, witnesses in the room when the kiss happened, however, they are both Trump supporters, a “campaign official and Pam Bondi, then the Florida attorney general.”
Johnson is one of more than a dozen women who have claimed that the president sexually violated them in one way or another. She is, however, the only one to come forward with such claims since Trump took over the White House.
WaPo reports the following details about Johnson:
“Johnson, an event planner who lives in Madison County, Ala., is seeking unspecified damages for emotional pain and suffering. The federal lawsuit, filed Monday in Florida, also alleges that the campaign discriminated against Johnson, who is black, by paying her less than her white male counterparts. A campaign spokeswoman, Kayleigh McEnany, rejected that claim as “off-base and unfounded.””
Johnson finally came to a decision to out the president after hearing him gloat about harming women by groping them without consent. According to Johnson:
“she began to consider coming forward in October 2016, after video surfaced of Trump bragging about kissing and groping women without their consent. That was the moment, she said, when she came to view the kiss as part of a pattern of Trump doing whatever he pleased to women.”
“She said she was nervous about speaking out but had come to regret having worked on the campaign. “I’ve tried to let it go,” she said, beginning to cry. “You want to move on with your life. I don’t sleep. I wake up at 4 in the morning looking at the news. I feel guilty. The only thing I did was show up for work one day.””
