The latest woman to accuse Trump of really awful sexual assault went on cable news to tell her story.
But when she was asked why she didn’t press charges against him, her answer was really really weird.
MSNBC HOST : Would you consider bringing a rape charge against Donald Trump?"— Stephanie Hamill (@STEPHMHAMILL) June 22, 2019
E. JEAN CARROLL: : NO
MSNBC HOST : Why ?
E. JEAN CARROLL: I find it disrespectful to the women who are down on the border who are being raped around the clock ...

On MSNBC, Trump rape accuser E. Jean Carroll is asked whether she would press rape charge against the president. MSNBC apparently hoping for Lewinsky-dress situation. Carroll says no charges. Why? Says it would be 'disrespectful' to women being raped on the border.— Byron York (@ByronYork) June 22, 2019
I’m not saying that Trump is such a virtuous example of Christian morality that he would never do such a thing. But, she’s making serious serious charges of not just harassment, but actual rape against Trump. If it really happened, why wouldn’t she want to press charges?
Her excuse is just bizarre – she doesn’t want to “insult” the women being raped at the border? HUH? There are women migrants being raped on their way to the border, but once they get into detention, there are ZERO accusations of rape. What the hell is she talking about?
She must realize her dumb mistake because she rambles on about all the women in the world being raped. But that doesn’t mean every crime falling short of rape should be excused simply because greater evil is happening in the world.
Now, it doesn’t help that Trump just lashed out with a statement that could be verifiably false:
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 pic.twitter.com/RqVH4Qe2mx— David Frum (@davidfrum) June 21, 2019
But I guess we kinda expect that from him. Also, #MAGA!!!
