    Perhaps it took her that long to heal from the attack and build up the courage to come forward, you ever think of that?

    What were you expecting from Donald Trump? A clean past? Really?

    If they'd read the account of the assault, they might...just maybe...feel a smidgen of sympathy for the victim.

    Orange Man is actually bad.

    As to why E. Jean Carroll is only mentioning this now:

    Carroll says that she disclosed the Trump incident to two friends at the time. One, whom Carroll describes as “a journalist, magazine writer, correspondent on the TV morning shows, author of many books, etc.,” told her to go to the police: “‘He raped you,’ she kept repeating when I called her. ‘He raped you. Go to the police! I’ll go with you. We’ll go together.’” The other, who is also a journalist, was sympathetically cautious: “‘Tell no one. Forget it! He has 200 lawyers. He’ll bury you.’”
    As for why Carroll has come forward only now, she writes that she dreaded the public humiliation that awaits her. “Receiving death threats, being driven from my home, being dismissed, being dragged through the mud,” she writes, “and joining the 15 women who’ve come forward with credible stories about how the man grabbed, badgered, belittled, mauled, molested, and assaulted them, only to see the man turn it around, deny, threaten, and attack them, never sounded like much fun.”
    Considering this happened only four years after Anita Hill, I don't blame her for being quiet about it, and I certainly don't blame the friend suggesting to her to be quiet about it. Keep in mind, Trump was emphatic that his has never met Carroll in his entire life.

    I have no doubt the woman's claims are true. If you are a woman, you probably know women who have been assaulted but have only told a couple of friends about what happened. If you are a woman who works or interacts with a lot of high profile men, you have likely experienced some type of sexual assault or attempted sexual assault, been groped, etc.

    Did the men who think this woman is lying read the part where her friend told her if she went to the police, she would be attacked viciously by Trump's friends and hordes of lawyers? It's very common for women not to report these crimes because they are fearful of not being believed. Good men are rarely accused of sexual assault, but when a man with a notorious reputation for abusing women is accused of assault by at least a dozen women, only a fool or someone who doesn't want to know the truth will claim it's the women who are lying. We are talking about a man who openly said he could grab women by the pussy. Isn't that enough to make people realize what a revolting human being this man is?

    Yeah, that's possible. After all, it is demonstrated that there are myriad morons who will believe anything ORANGE MAN say, because ORANGE MAN under attack from DEEP STATE!

    ...and of course, nearly every normal male is accused of rape by more than a dozen women, right?

    Your post seems like a woman-hating radical masculinist screed.

    There was a study or paper submitted to the forum which showed certain women are more targeted than others. So this isn't cause for additional skepticism beyond a he-said she-said doubt.

    It is very common for people not to go public with rape until decades later.

    Highly suspect, especially since there is no way to prove or disprove the allegations.
    It isn't highly suspect, just unknown. No matter how much you may want to attack her credibility, we just don't know.

    Witch hunt. Same thing happened with Brett Kavanaugh. Dems were so sure he was guilty. Nothing happened.

    Well, I think a system where an accusation without evidence is enough to destroy a man's career is a pretty messed up system.

    Anyone remember Senator Al Franken? He was in a photo where he faked grabbing a woman's breasts. Removed from the Senate.
    Well, technically he resigned because his fellow Democrats in the Senate, led by Kristin "Mattress woman" Gillibrand, pressured him to do so.
