Trump is reeling after two women have come forth in the wake of the audio tape being released to say that Trump sexually assaulted them.
The first story is from Jessica Leeds, she reacted to seeing Trump claim that he’s never sexually assaulted anyone, after having been a victim of Trump’s sexual assault.
Via NewYorkTimes:At that moment, sitting at home in Manhattan, Jessica Leeds, 74, felt he was lying to her face. “I wanted to punch the screen,” she said in an interview in her apartment.
More than three decades ago, when she was a traveling businesswoman at a paper company, Ms. Leeds said, she sat beside Mr. Trump in the first-class cabin of a flight to New York. They had never met before.
Via OccupyDemocrats: Jessica Leeds, 74, was seated next to Donald Trump on a first-class flight to New York over thirty years ago. They had never met before, but about 45 minutes after take-off, Donald Trump “lifted the armrest and began to touch her.” Trump began fondling her breasts and tried to put his hand up her skirt. “He was like an octopus…His hands were everywhere. It was an assault” said Leeds.
Leeds retreated to the back of the plane, but didn’t report the incident, as such harassment used to be commonplace.
Via OccupyDemocrats: Rachel Crooks was a receptionist at the Bayrock Group, a real estate company based in Trump Tower Manhattan. She met Trump outside an elevator one morning in 2005. After introducing himself and shaking hands, Trump didn’t let go – and began kissing her cheeks before moving to kiss her on the mouth. “It was so inappropriate. I was so upset that he thought I was so insignificant that he could do that” says Crooks.
When asked about the incidents by a NYT Reporter Trump responded: [the reporter] “was making up the allegations to hurt him and that he would sue the news organization if it reported them.”
