While the women who have accused Trump of sexual misconduct are happy to see others come forward with their claims of being sexually harassed, “many are dismayed that their own stories seem to have had little impact [Source: New York Mag].
While everyone has gotten caught up in the shocking decisions President Trump has made during his short time in office, New York Mag hasn’t forgot about the 16 women who accused Trump of sexual misconduct. While many sexual harassment allegations have recently surfaced, from those involving Harvey Weinstein to Louis C.K., what about Trump? After all, just because he is president doesn’t excuse him and his ill behavior he may have displayed prior to him deciding he wanted to get out of the hospitality industry and into a political role.
The fact is, while the allegations seemed to have a played a large impact during the time he campaigned, he was still elected president and it seems as though the rest was history. The women who claimed they were victimized by Trump no longer were a concern. Now, it’s all about the political decisions Trump makes that is all people care about. So, as a reminder to those who have forgotten about the several women who were allegedly mistreated in a sexual manner by our newly elected president, below is a rundown of some of the women and their allegations.
- Summer Zervos- Zervos was a contestant on the fifth season of The Apprentice in 2007, a reality T.V. show that was hosted by our current president. She alleged that Trump kissed her aggressively and attempted to force himself onto her. She continued to push back and protested that he stops engaging in these acts she did not consent to.
- Jessica Drake- Back in 2006, Drake, who was an adult film performer and director, said she went to Trump’s hotel room with a friend after a golf tournament. He grabbed both of the women tightly, hugging and kissing each without permission. Later that day, Trump called Drake trying to bribe her with $10,000 and access to his private jet if she would agree to sleep with him.
- Natasha Stoynoff- Back in 2005, Stoynoff was working on a profile of the Trumps and while she and Trump awaited the arrival of Melania, he allegedly pushed her against and wall and forced his tongue down her throat. He even went as far as saying, “You know we’re going to have an affair, don’t you?”
Aside from these women bringing forward their claims against the President, many others voiced their concerns after either being kissed by Trump without their consent or touched inappropriately.
So, the question that still lingers is, “How will these sexual allegations against President Trump be handled?”
Although most sexual misconduct allegations can come to light regardless of how far back they go, these cases have yet to be addressed involving various women and our 45th president, Donald Trump.
