Apologists surround president Donald Trump – and one of these people is his own daughter, Ivanka Trump. During an interview with NBC, Ivanka was asked about the several women who have stepped forth and accused her father of sexual abuse or misconduct.
She responded by saying that the question was “inappropriate,” and that she didn’t believe that it was right for a daughter to be asked such damning questions. “I think it’s a pretty inappropriate question to ask a daughter if she believes the accusers of her father when he’s affirmatively stated there’s no truth to it,” Ivanka stated, with a stern glance toward host Peter Alexander.
A History of Abuse
Several women have stepped forth and publicly accused the president of sexual misconduct, with Samantha Holvey, Rachel Crooks, and Jessica Leeds spearheading the movement for accountability. These are just a fraction of more than a dozen women who have accused President Trump of inappropriate behavior.
Holvey was a former Miss USA contestant from North Carolina who alleges that in 2006, Trump – who was the then owner of the Miss USA franchise – would personally “inspect” each contestant and enter their rooms unannounced, sometimes while they were in the middle of dressing up. She described the experience as feeling like a “piece of meat.”
Crooks had a harrowing experience with Trump. Her accounts were published by the New York Times back in October 2016. Crooks alleges that he held her and kissed her cheek when she introduced herself to him when she was a receptionist at a real estate investment company within the Trump Tower. She claims that eventually the kisses on the cheek eventually lead to the lips.
The Times published Leed’s allegation that Trump forcefully groped her in an airplane back in the 1970s. She then says that they crossed paths several years later, with Trump saying that he remembered her “from the airplane.” Trump then went ahead and called her a c*nt.
None of these allegations have stopped Trump from becoming the president. An absolute shame.
