A veteran journalist and former talk show host is coming forward with rape allegations against President Trump!
75-year-old E. Jean Carroll, a veteran New York lifestyle journalist and former talk show on NBC between 1994 and 1996, wrote a first-person essay published in New York magazine on Friday that says Donald Trump raped her in a dressing room at a ritzy Manhattan department store in the mid-90s. The shocking editorial is one of the most serious accusations of sexual assault against the president.
Carroll said the alleged rape took place in either the fall of 1995 or spring 1996 while she was shopping at Bergdorf Goodman in Midtown. Despite being accused by at least 19 women of sexual assault and/or misconduct and bragging on tape about his love for grabbing women “by the p—y”, the Commander-In-Chief vehemently denied Carroll’s allegations via a White House spokesman.
“This is a completely false and unrealistic story surfacing 25 years after allegedly taking place and was created simply to make the president look bad,” the spokesman said.
Caroll is the first woman to officially accused Trump of rape after his first wife, Ivana, alleged he raped her in the late 1980s, but later recanted her allegation and said she had not meant rape in the “criminal sense.” According to Carroll, Trump approached her as she was walking out of Bergdorf Goodman and asked if she could stick around to give him advice on a present he was getting for “a girl.” Carroll says while shopping for lingerie Trump spotted a “see-through bodysuit,” and demanded that she “go try this on!”
Carroll says what happened next left her with mental scars for the rest of her life.
“The moment the dressing-room door is closed, he lunges at me, pushes me against the wall, hitting my head quite badly, and puts his mouth against my lips,” Carroll writes.
“I am so shocked I shove him back and start laughing again. He seizes both my arms and pushes me up against the wall a second time, and, as I become aware of how large he is, he holds me against the wall with his shoulder and jams his hand under my coat dress and pulls down my tights.”
Carroll says “a colossal struggle” ensued.
“Still wearing correct business attire, shirt, tie, suit jacket, overcoat, he opens the overcoat, unzips his pants, and, forcing his fingers around my private area, thrusts his penis halfway — or completely, I’m not certain — inside me,” Carroll writes.
Carroll says she panicked, managed to “get a knee up” and push him out.
“I turn, open the door, and run out,” she writes.
Carroll claims the “whole episode” was over within three minutes.
“I run through the store and out the door — I don’t recall which door — and find myself outside on Fifth Avenue,” she writes.
Carroll says she never reported the rape to police she just told two friends what allegedly happened over 25 years ago. Both friends agreed to Carroll’s claim to New York magazine.
“Whether it’s my age, the fact that I haven’t met anyone fascinating enough over the past couple of decades to feel ‘the sap rising,’ as Tom Wolfe put it, or if it’s the blot of the real-estate tycoon, I can’t say,” she writes. “But I have never had sex with anybody ever again.”
