Donald Trump, defender of all alleged sexual assault victims—as long as they’re accusing other people and not him— smeared the 11th woman to come forward with allegations of his inappropriate sexual behavior on Monday in the saddest but most predictable way yet: slut-shaming the woman for her work in the adult film industry.
During a New Hampshire radio interview, which was first reported by CNN, Trump sneered, “Oh, I’m sure she’s never been grabbed before,” about Jessica Drake, who on Saturday accused Trump of grabbing and kissing her without her consent and offering her $10,000 to visit his hotel room alone in 2006.
“One said, ‘he grabbed me on the arm.’ And she’s a porn star,” Trump said. “You know, this one that came out recently, ‘he grabbed me and he grabbed me on the arm.’ Oh, I’m sure she’s never been grabbed before.’”
The GOP presidential nominee, who has repeatedly denied the allegations, went on to call the accusations “total fiction,” saying, “I don’t know these women, it’s not my thing to do what they say.”
Drake is far from the first of Trump’s accusers to be on the receiving end of his propensity for public insults. At rallies last week, Trump urged his hoards of supporters to seek on the “liars” online and attacked his accusers‘ looks as evidence that the allegations are false.
