After the convention Melania received really good ratings. For whatever reason she hasn't been speaking much. Maybe she is pissed off Trump set her up with that plagiarized speech.

I think most people have a favorable rating of her, even if she posed buttnaked and possibly married Trump for his money. She hasn't been very active in his campaign and has never made controversial comments to defend her husband. She has actually grown on me.

Sorry, but I don't believe Bill raped anyone. Anyone can claim anything, and most people have an agenda. The GOP has hated Bill for decades and would literally stop at nothing to do him in. They went after him with everything they had and...yet...there are no criminal charges, no convictions, nothing. The GOP is just blowing smoke.

I agree we can't just assume Bill is a rapist. Same with Trumo

anything levied against trump is to be taken with a grain of salt, the clinton camp has spewed so many lies about him that people get numb at all this stuff, so the default is to just assume they're all lies, when you cry wolf too many times, if something is really true, people might not believe it.

Why then do you think Clinton paid off several of his "victims", if he did nothing wrong?

Payoffs are so common it is scary - big businesses, police departments, parties in Tort lawsuit parties, etc... They do it do end things now and not end up with a fortune in legal fees and the issue literally dragging on for years. It's a pragmatic attitude. The "accused" party never reveals any wrong doing and the complain tent gets $. From a coffee spill to a slip and fall to a copyright infringement to a wrongful death. It is the way of the world. Problem is, anyone can claim anything. And if they know there is an easy payoff - it just encourages them to make unsubstantiated claims.

Nobody believed Bill Cosby's accusers until women started accusing him who weren't in it for the money (they were already rich women).

Personally, I believe this People Magazine reporter: Attacked by Donald Trump - A PEOPLE Writer's Story

She doesn't stand to gain anything from telling this story. She's already got books on the NYT bestseller list and People Mag reporters are at the top of their game.

Don't forget: Ken Starr (Independent Prosecutor) investigated all the Bill Clinton accusers and their claims. Some of them testified under oath and signed statements.
