What did bother me however was the interview with Howard Stern where Donald Trump brags about walking in on the beauty pageant contestants including teens while they were getting dressed. He owned the pageant and so in essence was like their boss. It is a form of sexual harassment clearly. My only question is why did nobody mention it sooner? That interview was 10 years ago.

I have to also say as a woman that it is clear from what he says that many women do allow him to get away with hitting on them so forcefully like that. Why is that ? Are they intimidated by him due to his wealth and fame? Are they goldiggers? Are they afraid of him? Again this has been going on a long time and nobody has said anything about it until now.
We don't know if the pageant contestants were required to sign non disclosure agreements like most of Trumps people. We do know that Trumps Miss Universe pageant sued and won against a contestant in 2013.

Quote:
In 2013, Trump’s Miss Universe pageant sought and won a $5 million judgment against a former contestant, accusing her of disparaging the event by claiming it was rigged. The judgment hung on the fine print of the contestant contract, which barred participants from doing or saying anything that would bring “public disrepute, ridicule, contempt or scandal or might otherwise reflect unfavorably” on Trump or a list of businesses associated with the pageant.

A liberal education is a dumbing down process.
Taking a normally functioning brain then pickle it in anti American ideas. Set it on a shelf to ferment for a few years. Surround it in a concrete like bone structure then seal it shut never to be open again. Then give it a diploma and release it into the wild. It becomes a parasitic insect that has no useful purpose.

You win the internet today!

Thank you for this information but is a non disclosure agreement legally binding if he is breaking the law by behaving in a sexually harassing way ? Still I can see how this agreement can intimidate people from coming forward.

OK, but the interviewer, the beauty pagent contestants?
The fact is the timing of the allegations are tied to the release of "the grab them by the *****" tape and then trumps denial after being asked 3 times a simple yes or no question. It is typical for victims to come forward after the attacker is exposed that's human nature that's just what happens, if you look at every scandal from dick pics to bill Cosby after an initial allegation is made more victims come forward so trying to spin that as political is false.
Bill Clinton is not running for president and all the alleged victims had their day in court and with an special persecutor after that. Monica Lewinsky never claimed sexual assault, is it likely that there probably was an element of position power in her consent at least initially sure, but again bill is not running for office.

People, wake up and GET A GRIP. Anyone's sex life -- Trump's, Bill's, Hillary's (if she has one): it's all just a diversion. Grab your smelling salts and go back to examining the issues.

Here is Ms Leeds - a total farce from the Clinton Foundation
Do you think the Clintons are actually so stupid that they would KNOWINGLY choose a woman to claim Trump assaulted her who could be so quickly tied to THEIR skirts????
Really that is just not smart in this day of instant info where everyone's lives are Instagrammed/Facebooked/texted to death...

Anyone who is orchestrating this "vast left-wing conspiracy" Trump blamed yesterday for all the accusers coming out of the woodwork at this point in the campaign would surely choose those who lack a direct tie to the Clintons...
In my mind, the very fact (if it is a fact) that she has a connection to the Clinton Foundation makes her less a plant/shill--not more likely...

We need to see the liberal low-education voter diploma. We could go to a food store and look for it in the pickle jar. Maybe its written on a clove of garlic.

No please don't say that as I purchase those things.

I'll accept in a expired container of milk instead.
