    And he denies having ever met her....when the article has a photo of them laughing with Ivanna and Carroll's husband.

    NY Mag: "E. Jean Carroll says Donald Trump attacked her in the 1990s." https://t.co/HAcn84aZpG

    The White House today issued a statement from President Trump denying that he ever met E. Jean Carroll in his life. Here's the @NYMag photo of the two of them talking in 1987 https://t.co/RqVH4Qe2mx

    Since politics isn't just the POS currently holding the illegitimately earned title of POTUS, any thoughts in the run up to the Democratic debate? Today they are all at the South Carolina Democratic Convention, where so far the stars have been Kamala, Andrew Yang and surprisingly Jay Inslee. Thorough duds have been Bernie and Gillibrand, based on audience reaction. Hopefully the debates will weed out a bunch of these wasted airtime candidates. Speaking of, oh hi Tulsi Gabbard.

    George Conway is on a roll:



    Republicans believed Juanita Broaddrick. The new rape allegation against Trump is more credible.

    by George Conway

    “Thank you very much for coming. These four very courageous women have asked to be here and it was our honor to help them. And I think they’re each going to make just an individual, short statement. And then will do a little meeting, and we will see you at the debate.”

    With those words, candidate Donald Trump kicked off a news conference just hours before the second presidential debate on Oct. 9, 2016. The brainchild of Stephen K. Bannon, Trump’s campaign chief, the gathering was an effort to blunt the impact of the now-notorious “Access Hollywood” tape, unearthed two days before, on which Trump had boasted of grabbing women by their genitals and doing “anything” to them that he liked.

    Sitting with Trump were four women, three of whom claimed to have been subjected to Bill Clinton’s unwelcome sexual advances. One, in particular, was sitting just to Trump’s right.

    Her name was Juanita Broaddrick. And she made an accusation of criminal sexual assault.

    “Mr. Trump may have said some bad words,” she said, “but Bill Clinton raped me.”

    The next night, at a campaign rally in Ambridge, Pa., Trump quoted Broaddrick as saying “Hillary Clinton threatened me after Bill Clinton raped me,” and called Bill Clinton “a predator,” “the worst abuser of women ever to sit in the Oval Office.”

    Broaddrick had told her story nearly two decades earlier, first to the media, and then later in a book. She had recounted how, in 1978, Clinton asked her up to his hotel room. How he allegedly forced himself upon her. How she tried to pull away. How he allegedly bit her lip, then later told her to put ice on it. How she sobbed. How she told some of her friends. How she didn’t tell the police. Clinton denied her accusations.

    Republicans and conservatives rallied to her cause then, and they did so once again in 2016. Democrats and liberals, not so much — although in the wake of the MeToo movement, some have since acknowledged the credibility of Broaddrick’s claim.

    But today there’s another woman with a similar allegation, against a different powerful man. Her name is E. Jean Carroll.

    She, too, says that she was raped — by Donald Trump.

    She, too, tells a story about how she was alone with a man. How in 1995 or 1996 that man, Trump, allegedly forced himself upon her. How she tried to fight back. How she tried to push him away and tried to stomp on his foot. How he penetrated her. How she ran out the door. How she told friends. How she didn’t tell the police. Trump also denied the accusations, calling them “fake news” and adding, “She is trying to sell a new book — that should indicate her motivation. It should be sold in the fiction section.”

    But Trump called Broaddrick “courageous,” and if Broaddrick was courageous, then certainly Carroll is as well. For Carroll’s story is at least as compelling as Broaddrick’s — if not more so.

    And that is because Carroll’s claim, for a number of reasons, actually rests upon a significantly stronger foundation than Broaddrick’s.

    For one thing, before she went public with her story, Broaddrick had repeatedly denied that Clinton had assaulted her, even under oath: In an affidavit she had submitted in Paula Jones’s sexual harassment case against Clinton, Broaddrick had sworn that the allegations “that Mr. Clinton had made unwelcome sexual advances toward me in the late seventies … are untrue,” that the press had previously sought “corroboration of these tales,” but that she had “repeatedly denied the allegations.” (Disclosure: I provided behind-the-scenes pro bono legal assistance to Jones’s lawyers.)

    For another, Carroll’s account is supported by the sheer number of claims that have now surfaced against Trump — claims in which women have accused Trump of engaging in unwelcome or forcible sexual conduct or assault against them. These claims — all denied by the president — far outnumber the publicized sexual misconduct incidents that involved Clinton, which mostly concerned rumors or allegations of consensual affairs.

    And as if to bring things full circle, Carroll’s account is also of course supported by Trump’s depraved remarks on the “Access Hollywood” video, of which there was simply no equivalent in Broaddrick’s case. Whatever else he may have done, Clinton never made a video like that. What Trump described on the video is exactly what Carroll says he did to her.

    Finally, no controversy involving Trump would be complete without at least one utterly brazen, easily disprovable Trumpian lie. In his statement denying the rape allegation, he added the claim that “I’ve never met this person in my life.”

    If Trump had even bothered to glance at Carroll’s published account, he would have seen a photograph of himself and his then-wife, Ivana, from 1987 ― in which he was amiably chatting with Carroll and her then-husband.

    By making the absurd and mendacious assertion that he never even met Carroll, Trump utterly annihilates the credibility of his claim that he didn’t assault her.Republicans or conservatives who promoted Broaddrick’s charges would be hypocritical if they fail to champion Carroll and condemn Trump.

    BREAKING: The West Hollywood City Council voted unanimously to seek the removal of the Donald Trump star from the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The removal would be based on Trump not sharing the "values" of West Hollywood. https://t.co/0y18gnvzHf

    Meanwhile in Maryland....

    In reference to President Trump’s recent
    tweets and media reports, the Montgomery County Department of Police will not participate with ICE regarding any immigration enforcement efforts next week or at any other time.

    It is against our long-standing policy as this is a national issue and not a local issue. We have not received any requests from the federal government or ICE for their planned enforcement nor do we anticipate being informed as to their plans.

    Trump flees White House for the weekend to have 'meetings' with himself

    By
    Oliver Willis -

    June 24, 20191 Comment

    Trump ran away to Camp David, leaving behind senior advisers and his family while he claimed to be involved in important meetings.

    After he bungled dealing with Iran and lied about the proposed military response, Trump escaped to Camp David over the weekend for what he said would be meetings and important work — but there's no evidence that he actually met with anyone or did any work.

    When he left the White House on Saturday, Trump told reporters he was going to Camp David for "a series of meetings and calls" so he could "focus on Iran and what's going to come next," CNN's Kaitlan Collins reported on Monday.

    "I am at Camp David working on many things, including Iran!" Trump tweeted on Saturday.

    But Collins noted that Trump left for the presidential retreat without any senior policy aides, members of the Cabinet, of even White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney.

    The White House press office declined to give reporters readouts of any calls with key officials or leaders related to Iran, and CNN noted Trump didn't even bring communications staff with him.
    "The president's family did not join him at Camp David either," Collins reported. Instead, Trump was "surrounded by a slew of junior aides."

    The highest ranking aide to accompany Trump was loyalist Dan Scavino, who runs his Twitter feed.

    Over the weekend when he was supposed to be doing important work, Trump tweeted to promotea pro-Trump book, a video clip of a supporter, and his Time magazine cover. He also defended his sloppy handling of the Iran situation and claimed he had called off his plan to have ICE conduct mass roundups and arrests of immigrants.

    Trump's weekend escape followed a series of public stumbles on the global stage.

    While American fighter jets were still in the air, Trump called off a planned bombing of Iranian sites in retaliation for shooting down an unmanned drone.

    Justifying his haphazard actions in an interview with NBC on Friday, Trump claimed that the military had neglected to make an assessment of possible Iranian casualties, and that he was the only one in the chain of command to do so.

    Subsequent reporting showed that Trump's version of events was made up, and that Pentagon lawyers had come up with a figure of possibly 150 casualties from a strike.

    The mismanaged episode came just days after Trump's pick to lead the Department of Defense, Patrick Shanahan, withdrew his nomination amidst reports of domestic violence.

    After the resignation of Jim Mattis in December, there hasn't been a permanent secretary of defense since Jan. 1, 2019, or 173 days — the longest such gap in American history.

    Trump has multiple national security messes on his hands, along with growing concerns over his criminal and corrupt conduct and calls for impeachment.

    Facing those troubles in Washington, Trump escaped to Camp David — away from his family and advisers, but with his trusty Twitter guru.
