The DNC planned a fake Craigslist job ad making references to groping and kissing about Trump - it's almost like they knew what was going to come out. At the time this was written (May 18, 2016), the video hadn't been released. Just a coincidence I'm sure. Here is the text:
Multiple Positions (NYC area)
Seeking staff members for multiple positions in a large, New York-based corporation known for its real estate investments, fake universities, steaks, and wine. The boss has very strict standards for female employees, ranging from the women who take lunch orders (must be hot) to the women who oversee multi-million dollar construction projects (must maintain hotness demonstrated at time of hiring).
Title: Honey Bunch (that’s what the boss will call you)
Job requirements: * No gaining weight on the job (we’ll take some “before” pictures when you start to use later as evidence) * Must be open to public humiliation and open-press workouts if you do gain weight on the job * A willingness to evaluate other women’s hotness for the boss’ satisfaction is a plus * Should be proficient in lying about age if the boss thinks you’re too old Working mothers not preferred (the boss finds pumping breast milk disgusting, and worries they’re too focused on their children).
About us: We’re proud to maintain a “fun” and “friendly work environment, where the boss is always available to meet with his employees. Like it or not, he may greet you with a kiss on the lips or grope you under the meeting table.
Interested applicants should send resume, cover letter, and headshot to email@example.com<mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org>
While I think women who say they were sexually assaulted should be listened to, I also don't think we can automatically assume the man is guilty. I analyzed what these women said and provided the research that I found on the internet. GotNews.com does a great job, by the way. I will leave it up to the reader to reach their own conclusions.
In the NYT, she said that she was on a flight to New York. She was invited to sit in first class from coach. She said Donald Trump introduced himself, shook her hand, and "exchanged pleasantries." She said he lifted the armrest after dinner and began to grope her. She said she then fled back to coach. She said she didn't complain to the airline staff because in the 1970s and early 80s as it was common for men to make "unwanted advances."
Questions About Her Story
1. Jessica Leeds told Anderson Cooper on CNN that she flew on a Braniff International Airways 707 from Dallas to New York City in 1979. (she thinks)
However, Braniff didn’t have 707 flights from Dallas to New York City, only 727s.
2. Furthermore, the armrests on Braniff 727s appear to be inadjustable.
Both CNN and Gizmodo are claiming that first class Braniff seats have foldable arm rests, but the pictures they show are of coach seats that fold down if a middle seat is vacant, not of first class seats.
CNN’s Jon Ostrower lied about first class armrests on Braniff airplanes to cover up the false story of The New York Times‘ Trump “sexual assault” accuser Lying Jessica Leeds.
Jon Ostrower should know better: he is CNN’s “aviation editor”! Why isn’t CNN’s full-time paid airplane expert able to accurately explain and report airplane details?
Here is Jon Ostrower’s article. So what did he lie about? Listen up.
Ostrower’s article on CNN put up a photo of Braniff first class seats with the misleading caption: “Braniff first class seat with moveable arm rest.”
CNN used the word “moveable” instead of “removable.” That’s a big difference.
CNN omitted that the first class armrests were not adjustable or liftable like Jessica Leeds claimed.
CNN omitted that the armrest was very bulky, hard to remove, and had to be stored somewhere once removed!
A user who flew on Braniff planes in the 1970s and 1980s wrote on the aviation forum Airliners.net that the first class armrests “were a bitch to take out, were bulky and you had to put it in an empty row.”
According to lying Jessica Leeds, as she was sitting next to Donald Trump, the armrest just “suddenly disappeared.”
In reality, for it to have “disappeared,” Donald Trump would have had to stand up, stand in front of Jessica Leeds, loudly remove the bulky armrest, and then walk away to store it somewhere like an empty row.
3. She said on CNN that the stewardess brought her up to First Class for "entertainment value" so he would be out the stewardesses' hair. Essentially, she means that Trump was harassing the stewardess and the stewardess put her there so he would harass her instead. This is nothing that she has any proof of, so she concocted it in her head.
4. She said his "hands were everywhere." She said it went on for 15 minutes "not real long," but it "seemed like forever." As Anderson Cooper pointed out, 15 minutes is a long time. This went on for 15 minutes, and she just sat there and took it. The guy across the aisle sat there and watched?
5. She said something odd:
If he would have stuck with the upper part of the body I might not have gotten, I might not have gotten too upset. But when he started putting his hand up my skirt that was it.
6. This is from Twitter. She said "He was like an octopus; his hands were everywhere." There is a Red Velvet song that matches that phrasing that says, "He was like an octopus. Hands all over the place." Then there was a court case about sexual assault a couple of years ago that was written about in The Guardian where a victim is quoted as saying, "He sort of came over to me and pressed himself against me. He touched both breasts over the clothing - He was like an octopus. Hands everywhere." The person who Tweeted this said this isn't a common phrase, and the main references to it are these three places. I did a search and also found reference to the song and the other case but nothing else.
7. Speaking about the guy from across the aisle. He has come forward to the New York Post:
“I have only met this accuser once and frankly cannot imagine why she is seeking to make out that Trump made sexual advances on her. Not only did he not do so (and I was present at all times) but it was she that was the one being flirtatious,” Anthony Gilberthorpe said in a note provided to The Post by the Trump campaign.
In an exclusive interview arranged by the campaign, Gilberthorpe said he was on the flight — in either 1980 or 1981— where Jessica Leeds claimed Trump groped her.
Gilberthorpe, 54, said he was sitting across the first class aisle from the couple and saw nothing inappropriate. Leeds was wearing a white pantsuit, he said, while Trump was wearing a suit and cuff-links, which he gave to his British flight companion.
Indeed, Gilberthorpe claimed, Leeds was “trying too hard” in her attempt to win Trump over.
“She wanted to marry him,” Gilberthorpe said of Leeds, who apparently made the confession when Trump excused himself and went to the bathroom.
There was no kissing, but the “shrill” Leeds was “very much in your face” with the real estate developer.
8. She didn't start telling people until a year and a half ago - when Trump started running for President. Then she told 2 friends a son and a nephew. Why wouldn't you come forward sooner? There were multiple times the media sought to portray Trump as misogynist starting back from the first debate with Megyn Kelly. Why wait until weeks before the election?
9. Ties to the Clintons. First and foremost, she is upfront with the New York Times that she is voting for Hillary Clinton.
Leeds is also connected to two big Hillary supporters, Julie Kleszczewski and Diane Daniels, via an organization called Altrusa International.
Altrusa International, Inc. describes itself as a volunteer organization of “civic minded people who are interested in creating better communities. Last year, Altrusans proudly gave over a million volunteer hours around the world, including clubs in the United States, Puerto Rico, Canada, England, Bermuda, Ireland, India, Scotland, New Zealand and Russia.” Altrusa’s causes include literacy, HIV/AIDS, and disaster relief.
Jessica Leeds is presently the Director of Altrusa International District Two and Altrusa International of New York, NY.
(a) Julie Kleszczewski:
Julie Kleszczewski‘s LinkedIn profile says she is Altrusa International’s UN NGO Representative since 2002. In that capacity, she represents “Altrusa International at United Nations DPI/NGO Briefings, reporting, being involved in other committees at the UN and giving international workshops.”
Kleszczewski is mentioned in a Feb. 6, 2008 New York University journalism article, “Walk On By,” as “a [Hillary] Clinton volunteer attempting to distribute flyers to voters exiting the Union Square subway station“. On her Facebook page, Kleszczewski has a selfie of herself with Hillary Clinton, with this comment, “I met Candidate Hillary Clinton at AL and ALA National Convention in Cincinnati Ohio, Wednesday, August 31, 2016. How exciting to meet her again”:
(b) Diane Daniels:
According to a screenshot posted to 4chan, Jessica Leeds, Julie Kleszczewski, and Diane Daniels were, respectively, the secretary and officers of Altrusa International’s New York Club in 2014-15.
Diane Daniels had worked for a Hillary Clinton superPAC, Ready For Hillary, which was created in January 2013 to draft Hillary to run for President in 2016. Among the supporters of Ready For Hillary was George Soros.
10. She was in a land dispute with Trump in 2008:
Department of random property disputes: A Rancho Palos Verdes woman says the Donald Trump organization summarily ended a property dispute by sending a construction crew and bulldozers to rip down and relocate the fence in her backyard.
The homeowner, Jessica Leeds, has property that borders on Trump's golf course development, and had been in negotiations with the Trump organization, which was arguing that her fence was actually in Trump's property. She says she believed the two sides were in the process of negotiating a solution when a construction crew showed up last Thursday.

Rachel Crooks said she was 22 years old and working for Bayrock Group, a real estate and investment company, in Trump Tower in 2005. She said that she saw Donald Trump near the elevators, and she went up to introduce herself to him. She said he shook her hand, didn't let go, and kissed her cheeks and then her lips (all in public of course in front of the elevators inside his building where anyone could see but no one did).
1. Lona Burnstein, a friend of the family, came out and said on Facebook ( a few of her comments):
Rachel Crooks one of the supposed victims of Mr Trump is from Greensprings Ohio, I know the family...she is lying...Shame on Rachel Crooks!!
She is the one from 11 years ago...but I know her family and she is definitely lying... pretty sad actually, nice family
She was working as a secretary for some company and she met him that way...he was being nice to her and told her he would contact her for a modeling career and he never did...end of story.
I remember them talking about her meeting him...and her story today doesn't match the story she told 11 years ago!! She's definitely lying!
2. Both Ms. Leeds and Ms. Crooks say they support Hillary Clinton’s campaign for president, and Ms. Crooks has made contributions of less than $200 to President Obama and Mrs. Clinton.
She saids she was at a Manhattan nightclub sitting on a red velvet couch when someone sat down next to her and stuck his hand under her mini skirt - touching her genitals. She shoved the hand away and fled. The Washington Post story itself gives one reason to doubt.
1. She said this occurred during the early 1990s, but she can't recall the year or her exact age. If someone violated me, that's a date I wouldn't forget.
2. She said that she recognized it was Donald Trump because of his hair and his eyebrows.:
“He was so distinctive looking — with the hair and the eyebrows. I mean, nobody else has those eyebrows.”
What? The article notes that Trump was well known in NYC at the time, so saying she recognized the guy as Donald Trump would make sense. However, using his eyebrows to say that she recognized him is odd. I have watched Donald Trump on The Apprentice and have followed his entire race for President. Never once did I notice anything distinctive about his eyebrows. I have never heard (or read) anyone comment on his eyebrows at all. Donald Trump has been mocked with statues, impersonators, and cartoons, all of which like to emphasize a distinctive physical characteristic, and yet none of these things mocked his eyebrows.
3. Anderson, who said she does not support Trump or Democrat Hillary Clinton, did not initially approach The Post. A reporter contacted her after hearing her story from a person who knew of it, and she spent several days trying to decide whether to go public.
Isn't it a crazy coincidence that someone she knows and told this to just happens to contact or know a Washington Post reporter? Supposedly they did it without telling her at the Washington Post. The Washington Post wanted her to go public. She said she only decided to go public after the Anderson debate question and when she saw the report in the NYT and in People magazine. Of course. It's not like there was any other point in the primary or general where the media was accusing Trump of misogyny. The Washington Post would have gladly run that story at any time during the primaries or general.
4. She can't name who she was with:
The episode, as Anderson described it, lasted no more than 30 seconds. Anderson said she and her companions were “very grossed out and weirded out” and thought, “Okay, Donald is gross. We all know he’s gross. Let’s just move on.”
The place was packed.
“There was a table in front of the couch, and there were people standing, people sitting. People are sitting on the arms of the couch,” she said.
She cannot name the people who were with her at the club but says it is likely they were co-workers from the restaurant where she was a hostess and with whom she long ago lost touch.
So she can't remember the very same companions who were "very grossed out and weirded out?" None of them. It should be something the remember too.
5. She can't remember the name of the club:
She believed her encounter with Trump had been at China Club but could not say for sure that it was not another Manhattan nightspot.
What she does remember vividly is the tufted red couch. As she pondered whether to share her story publicly, she Googled old photos of the club and found an image of a room crowded with the kind of couch she remembered.
Donald Trump went to this club:
A Newsday gossip item from December 1992 described China Club, located then at Broadway and 75th Street, as “Donald’s Monday-night nest,” where he made a practice of picking up women. At the time of the item, Trump had recently divorced his first wife, Ivana, and was not yet married to his second, Marla Maples.
How do we know she didn't Google, find an article about a club Trump went to this club, and then say that's where she was? She can't say who she was with, and there were no witnesses despite over a thousand people potentially in the club:
6. No witnesses.
On the busiest nights of its heyday, New York magazine once wrote, China Club would be “packed with more than 1,200 people, dancing, screaming, drinking, talking, mating, and smoking.”
Timothy Gleason, a longtime China Club manager, said he “never heard any accusations like” what Anderson described about Trump.
There were up to 1,200 people there, and NO ONE saw a thing. Furthermore, the man who managed the club said he NEVER heard anyone say that about Trump, and Trump was a regular there. So all the women there are hiding it or Trump never did it? If Trump had done what she alleged so casually, she surely wouldn't have been an anomaly at that club. Yet the manager says he never heard of Trump doing anything like that.
7. She says she does not support either candidate, but she is considering writing in Romney or Oprah.
If someone did that to me, I would sure as heck support their opponent.
So to sum it up, she doesn't remember the year, who she was with, or the club for sure. There were no eyewitnesses. The owner of the club she guessed she was at says Trump never had any complaints made against him. She recognized Trump because of his "distinctive" eyebrows. She didn't come forward until someone told The Post to contact her after the other women from Cooper's signaling.
Natasha Stoynoff said that she worked for People Magazine and was assigned to the Trump beat. She said she covered The Apprentice, was at the Trump wedding, and visited his house. She said that she was doing a story on the one year anniversary of Trump and Melania's wedding in 2005. She was at Mar-A-Lago, and Melania, who was very pregnant, went to change her wardrobe. Trump offered to show her around the mansion. He took her to a room, shut the door, and forced his tongue down her throat. She said she was saved by Trump's butler.
1. She said Donald Trump took her to a "tremendous" room. Here's the thing about this "tremendous" room. The walls are made of glass - meaning anyone can see in:
He also reiterated skepticism that Stoynoff is coming forward with her story now — "Why wasn't it part of the story [she wrote about Trump] that appeared 20 or 12 years ago?" Trump also said the room where the alleged assault took place "is a room that everybody can see in" with glass walls.
2. As Donald Trump noted, why didn't she put that in the story or mention it? The story would have blown up. It would have been huge. Can you imagine the scandal?
3. Donald Trump's butler that supposedly came in and saved the day says it didn't happen:
Donald Trump’s former Mar-a-Lago Butler backed up the Republican nominee for president in denying the billionaire groped a reporter from People magazine.
“No, that never happened. Come on, that’s just bull crap,” said Anthony “Tony” Senecal.
Senecal, 85, said he never saw Trump putting the moves on any women at Mar-a-Lago — even when his boss wasn’t married.
“Everybody is just jumping on the train,” he said. “I think you’re going to see even more of it between now and the election. But these incidents never happened.”
4. She said he wanted to have an affair with her:
“You know we’re going to have an affair, don’t you?” he declared, in the same confident tone he uses when he says he’s going to make America great again. “Have you ever been to Peter Luger’s for steaks? I’ll take you. We’re going to have an affair, I’m telling you.” He also referenced the infamous cover of the New York Post during his affair with Marla Maples.
“You remember,” he said. “‘Best Sex I Ever Had.’ ”
This sounds like a caricature of Trump, and Trump's comments indicate that he isn't even attracted to her:
“Look at her, look at her words. You tell me what you think. I don’t think so. I don’t think so.”
5. She said she ran into Melania months later:
I asked to be taken off the Trump beat, and I never interviewed him again. A few months later, I saw Trump at the memorial service of a mutual friend, designer Oleg Cassini. We were both giving eulogies, but I avoided him. That winter, I actually bumped into Melania on Fifth Avenue, in front of Trump Tower as she walked into the building, carrying baby Barron.
“Natasha, why don’t we see you anymore?” she asked, giving me a hug.
I was quiet and smiled, telling her I’d missed her, and I squeezed little Barron’s foot. I couldn’t discern what she knew. Did she really not guess why I hadn’t been around?
Melania responded by having a letter released:
The true facts are these: Mrs. Trump did not encounter Ms. Stoynoff on the street, nor have any conversation with her. The two are not friends and were never friends or even friendly. At the time in question, Mrs. Trump would not have even recognized Ms. Stoynoff if they had encountered one another on the street.
6. In her Facebook profile, she posted (apparently multiple times) a letter she received from Kirk Douglas. The article said:
I read your article with great interest. It was so well written and I want to thank you for writing it.
She wrote on Facebook:
You have to know how to read in between the lines. What Kirk Douglas is actually saying here is: "Natasha, I love you! If I wasn't married to the fabulous Anne, I'd beg you to run away with me!" I just know it.
Secondly, she posted a picture with Mike Tyson who she tried to get close to and got a picture with. She wrote:
I didn't hurt him...MUCH
Kirk Douglas was involved in a rumor that he raped Natalie Wood, and Mike Tyson is a convicted rapist. Why would she be so excited to meet these two after she says Trump forced himself on her?
Mindy McGillivay said that she was at Mar-A-Lago at a Ray Charles concert on January 24, 2003. She said she and Ken Davidoff "were standing in a pavilion behind the main house in the middle of a group of people." Regis Philbin and his wife were to the left and Donald and then fiancee Melania were to the right. She said Ray had finished and was saying his goodbyes when:
"“All of a sudden I felt a grab, a little nudge. I think it’s Ken’s camera bag, that was my first instinct. I turn around and there’s Donald. He sort of looked away quickly. I quickly turned back, facing Ray Charles, and I’m stunned.’’
McGillivray said she remembers saying to herself, ‘’‘OK, am I going to say something now and make a scene or be quiet?’ I chose to stay quiet.’’
Davidoff said he did not witness the alleged groping but he said he has never had any reason to doubt McGillivray.
Asked about the possibility that what she felt was Trump or someone accidentally bumping into her, McGillivray said no. “This was a pretty good nudge. More of a grab,’’ she said. “It was pretty close to the center of my butt. I was startled. I jumped.’’"
1. So she felt a "grab, a little nudge" and assumed that something/someone couldn't have bumped into her or someone else could have touched her. It had to be Trump because he happened to be looking that way and then looked away quickly?
Per Got News:
According to the Palm Beach Post: “She said the incident is something she and her family and the Davidoffs would bring up periodically over the years, sometimes joking about it. When Trump entered the presidential race, she said she started telling the story to more friends.” So McGillivray continued to gossip about the time she imagined she received attention from a billionaire.
McGillivray never said anything about being “nudged” backstage until after the second presidential debate, when she contacted the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Palm Beach Post. Why wait so late in the game? Could it be that the Clinton campaign and the hoaxing media were shook after Hillary bombed?
Note that she contacted the Clinton campaign/Palm Beach Post 3 weeks before an election.
2. She said that Melania was Trump's fiancee in 2003, but that can't be because Trump didn't get engaged to Melania until April of 2004.
3. There was no Ray Charles concert on January 24, 2003. A photo exists of Trump and Melania posing at Mar-A-Lago with Ray Charles on January 1, 2003. There was in fact no Ray Charles concert in the country on January 24, 2003.
4. She said she had had another encounter with Trump about two years earlier at Mar-a-Lago, when she helped Davidoff photograph a New Year’s Eve party in 2001.
She was walking out of a restroom “and Donald caught me right before I headed downstairs. He goes, ‘It’s a cool evening, isn’t it?’’’ she said, mocking his voice. “He had this debonair tone. He was totally flirting,’’ she said.
“And then here comes Melania to save the day. She sees me. She had this shawl on because it was cold on New Year’s. And she whips the shawl behind her neck and storms off into the bathroom. I made a quick pivot and went straight downstairs and he went after her.’’
OMG! He said "It's a cool evening, isn't it?" Thank God that Melania saved the day.
5. She has a dubious legal history:
She knows her past may be scrutinized. She told The Post she has numerous traffic infractions over the years and two felony arrests. She was arrested when she was 17 for breaking into a school and got probation. And in 2012, she was arrested on DUI and child neglect charges because a child was in the car. She was adjudicated guilty of a misdemeanor.
6. She is registered to vote as having no party affiliation. She said she would have loved to see Bernie Sanders win the Democratic nomination but she will vote for Clinton.
Well, she's a clearly a liberal who is voting for Clinton.
Summer Zervos was a former contestant on The Apprentice. She was fired but still liked Trump. For the record, Trump is denying the following account, but I went through it to point out some head scratcher things that she said.
1. After being kicked off of The Apprentice, Zervos still admired Trump and “continued to see him as a possible mentor and a potential employer.” She describes a meeting with him at his New York office in 2007 when she was visiting from California, during which she says he told her he would “love to have” her work for him, and wanted to meet again when he visited Los Angeles in the near future. He also allegedly kissed her on the lips both when they said hello and when they parted ways, something she says upset her but she ultimately chalked up to “some form of greeting.”
She said that he kissed on the lips twice, but she decided it was "some form of greeting." She said she called her parents who thought the same. I can only speak to the fact that if I told my parents that happened, they would say that is odd - not "some form of greeting."
He told her of her appearance on The Apprentice:
He said that he was impressed with how I handled myself on The Apprentice. He said that he had never met anyone with my combination of being smart, attractive, and with the largest set of balls as I had.
Just one thing, she was the FIRST person he fired on The Apprentice that season:
Zervos was the very first of 18 people eliminated on the first episode of the season. She got herself fired after repeatedly interrupting Donald Trump.
Zervos’ teammates complained that she didn’t contribute anything to their project. Zervos only made one sales phone call then gave up — her job was to make as many calls as possible.
Why would he say that about someone who he fired first? Why would he be so excited about hiring her when she was the first fired from the show?
2. Now we get to the hotel part of her story where she claimed he met her at a Beverly Hills hotel when he was in California:
I was standing in the entryway. To the left was a bedroom and I saw Mr. Trump’s clothes on the bed. I did not see him but he greeted me with “Hello” in a sing-song voice. I thought a mistake had been made and Mr. Trump thought he was speaking with someone he was more familiar with.
I walked farther into the living room, away from the bedroom, and sat down. I waited for about 15 minutes until Mr. Trump emerged. He had his suit on. I stood up and he came to me and started kissing me open-mouthed as he was pulling me toward him. I walked away and I sat down in a chair. He was in a low seat across from me and I made an attempt at conversation. He then asked me to sit next to him. I complied. He then grabbed my shoulder and started kissing me again very aggressively and placed his hand on my breast.
I pulled back and walked to another part of the room. He walked up, grabbed my hand, and walked me into the bedroom. I walked out. He then turned me around and said, “Let’s lay down and watch some tele-tele.” He put me into an embrace and I tried to push him away. I pushed his chest to put space between us and I said, “C’mon, man, get real.” He repeated my words back to me — “get reeeeal” — as he began thrusting his genitals. He tried to kiss me again with my hand still on his chest and I said, “Dude, you’re tripping right now,” attempting to make it clear I was not interested. He said, “Well, what do you want.” I said, “I came to have dinner.” He said, “Okay, we’ll have dinner.”
First of all, if we are to believe this account, he forced himself on her three times, and she continued to stay. This reads so unrealistically. I'm just highlighting some phrases I find odd.
~"Hello" in a sing song voice?
~"Let's lay down and watch some tele-tele." Who the heck uses the term "tele-tele?"
~"C'mon, man, get real."
~"Get reeeeal" Trump supposedly mocked her saying "get reeeeal" while thrusting his genitals.
~"Dude, you're tripping right now"
~Then he asked her what she wanted. She said she came for dinner. Now wait a minute, a guy forced himself on you three times, and you stayed for dinner? So then Trump ordered dinner and discussed real estate and business with her with her the rest of the night:
She says their dinner only involved business and real-estate talk, and that they met the next morning at his golf course in Palos Verdes. “I wondered if the sexual behavior was some kind of test,” Zervos says, “or whether or not I had passed.”
Say what? If that happened, how could anyone consider it some kind of test? That suggests that she thought he does that with women he wants to employ because either he only hires women who kiss him back OR he only hires women who don't kiss him back. That's nonsensical.
From the hotel. I drove straight to our family business to speak with my father, and he gave his advice. I decided to go to the golf course the next day.
What advice could her father possibly give? No father would tell her to go if this occurred (unless she ignored her father). I repeat, no father.
After receiving a tour of Trump’s golf course from the general manager, she says the latter called her and offered her a job for half the salary she was looking for. She says she continued to discuss business opportunities with Trump — though he reportedly told her to no longer use his private number — until he eventually told her he couldn’t afford to hire her.
So she was willing to stay with a guy who forced himself on her three times, but she stuck around, and she was disappointed because he didn't offer a job with the salary she wanted. Then, it seems that she kept trying to discuss business opportunities with Trump, but he never gave her an opportunity she wanted, said she couldn't use his number, and then said he couldn't afford to hire her. The fact that Trump declined her on these three things could be reason enough to want to smear him. However, she still wanted to work for Trump:
Even though Mr. Trump had sexually harassed me, I still wanted to get a job within the Trump Organization. I felt that since I had made it clear to him I was not interested in having a sexual relationship with him that he would give me a job that would be based solely on merit, and we would be able to work together.
What?!! That makes no sense. She claimed he sexually harassed her, but she still wanted a job with him because, what? He wouldn't do it again? Why would a woman want a job working for and with a man who sexually harassed her?
3. During Mr. Trump's fight for the Republican nomination, I saw and heard Mr. Trump nonstop on television and in the news. Customers at my restaurant asked about him, as they knew I was a contestant on The Apprentice. I always complimented and never said anything about what we had done at the Beverly Hills Hotel. However, this caused me a great deal of pain and anguish, and I felt the need to confront Mr. Trump and ask him to apologize for his behavior.
She said when she initially contacted Trump's secretary, she didn't tell say why. She didn't say whether she called or emailed. However, she said that she didn't tell the secretary WHY she wanted to speak with Trump. She did say she emailed on April 21, 2016. However, what she said in that email had nothing to do with Trump visiting her restaurant. Why is that significant? The Trump campaign released this email sent from Servos sent on April 14, 2016:
I am certain that you are a very busy woman. I am in an unique situation being that I am the only former Apprentice who operates a business where Mr. Trump's supporters can walk in, express their admiration for him and inquire about my experience. Mr. Trump has a great deal of support in Huntington Beach, CA! He has witnessed both my highs and lows operating a small business and I am pleased to report that business is good. Sunny's restaurant has a long history of making people fee special. We hire a diverse crew and hire anyone that is honest while working hard. Mr. Trump is cut from the same cloth.
I would greatly appreciate reconnecting at this time. He will know my intentions are genuine.
Here is the April 21 email in which she didn't mention him visiting her restaurant but simultaneously praised him and said that he hurt her:
I then wrote his assistant an email on April 21, 2016, asking her to send my email directly to Mr. Trump. In that email, I stated, "Your interest in me as a potential employee meant the world to me. Your interest in me as anything more blew my mind, and I lost my footing." I further said, "I have been incredibly hurt by our previous interaction." I ended by stating, "I hope to hear from you and wish you continued success." Mr. Trump did not reply.
So there is no mention of Trump visiting her restaurant based on how she described her initial contact with Trump's secretary and the April 21. She never spoke of sending the April 14, 2016 email, so I don't know if she admitted to sending that or not. Again, if he did it, why contact him again? Why would she think if he did it that he would apologize and do so while running for President? The April 21 email makes no reference to visiting her restaurant, but since the April 14th interview did.... If he did it, why would he apologize at her restaurant surrounded with aides, secret service, press, and people? If Trump received that April 21 email, "Hurt from a previous interaction" could have something to do with not being given a job. If she was so hurt, why did she want to work with him after the supposed incident? If she was so hurt, why did she ask seven days prior for him to come visit her restaurant?
Article quotes from:
Some of the transcript from:
4. For Trumps' part, he says the whole thing is fiction - that he never met her at a hotel:
“I vaguely remember Ms. Zervos as one of the many contestants on The Apprentice over the years. To be clear, I never met her at a hotel or greeted her inappropriately a decade ago. That is not who I am as a person, and it is not how I’ve conducted my life. In fact, Ms. Zervos continued to contact me for help, emailing my office on April 14th of this year asking that I visit her restaurant in California.
“Beyond that, the media is now creating a theater of absurdity that threatens to tear our democratic process apart and poison the minds of the American public. When Gloria Allred is given the same weighting on national television as the President of the United States, and unfounded accusations are treated as fact, with reporters throwing due diligence and fact-finding to the side in a rush to file their stories first, it’s evident that we truly are living in a broken system.
“Hillary Clinton can spend all of her time and money pushing complete lies against our campaign, but I refuse to fall victim to this vicious cycle of personal attacks. In the coming days I plan on addressing our nation in a more personal way to present my vision for how together we fight to bring back American jobs and defend our country against radical Islamic terrorism. I will take my message directly to the American people and bypass the unethical press that wants to see their candidate elected. Together, we will make America great again.”
5. Again, her story at a lot of "What the heck?" moments in it. His rebuke matches up with her clearly wanting a job from Trump. Could it be bitterness? Her cousin thinks so:
"I am completely shocked and bewildered by my cousin, Summer Zervos, and her press conference today. Ever since she was on The Apprentice she has had nothing but glowing things to say about Mr. Trump. For almost a decade, my cousin would talk about how much she looked up to Mr. Trump and viewed him as an inspiration – a success story she wanted to copy. Summer would also talk about how kind and caring Mr. Trump was on the show, and how he would even visit children in hospitals without telling the press. She has praised the good things he's done for her life, and in fact she converted her friends and our family to become Trump supporters even though we’ve never been active in politics before.
“That was until Summer invited Mr. Trump to her restaurant during the primary and he said no. I think Summer wishes she could still be on reality TV, and in an effort to get that back she’s saying all of these negative things about Mr. Trump. That’s not how she talked about him before. I can only imagine that Summer’s actions today are nothing more than an attempt to regain the spotlight at Mr. Trump’s expense, and I don’t think it reflects well.” – John Barry, Mission Viejo, CA (first cousin of Summer Zervos)
6. Her lawyer is none other than Gloria Allred who was behind the Herman Cain supposed victims who came out when he was running for President and disappeared as soon as he dropped out. She also was behind rumors of an October surprise that was supposed to take Romney out. No need, of course, Romney took himself out. She was a delegate at the DNC this past cycle.
Here is a Wikileaks email where she goes back and forth with a Jordan Vaughn about the language in an invitation to a DNC reception. This email back and forth was in May of 2016 where Gloria was already accusing him of sexual harassment. At one point she says after receiving the first draft:
Please delete the word ”fellow”. Also, his position on equal pay is unclear. I think you should delete that. Is there anything you can substitute for that, e.g. demeaning treatment of women in the work place or sexual harassment in the work place?
This is the final draft they settled on:
Donald Trump is the presumptive Republican nominee for President of the United States in 2016. As a lifelong advocate for women’s rights, this statement is frightening. Donald Trump has pledged to reverse the vast amounts of great progress we have made over the years. His demeaning treatment of women and his stance on the Supreme Court and issues such as abortion would reverse this progress and negatively impact millions of Americans across the country – and that is unacceptable.
The time to act is now. That is why I hope you will join myself, Tina Tchen, and Robbie Kaplan for a Democratic National Committee reception on May 31st at the home of Leatitia and Richard Garriott in New York. We will come together and discuss the upcoming race, and why we as Democrats must do everything we can to ensure a Democrat remains in the White House for the next four years.

I hope you will answer this important call to action.
1. Their alleged encounter took place almost two decades ago – Heller believes the year was 1997 and she was at a Mother’s Day brunch – at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate. Heller, her husband, her three children and her in-laws were among dozens of families seated at big round tables in what she and a relative who spoke to the Guardian recall was an open lobby.
Trump made the rounds greeting members of his club. When he stopped at their table, Heller recalled, and her mother-in-law introduced her, she stood and extended her hand.
“He took my hand, and grabbed me, and went for the lips,” she claimed.
Alarmed, she said she leaned backwards to avoid him and almost lost her balance. “And he said, ‘Oh, come on.’ He was strong. And he grabbed me and went for my mouth and went for my lips.” She turned her head, she claims, and Trump planted a kiss on the side of her mouth. “He kept me there for a little too long,” Heller said. “And then he just walked away.”
“I was angry and shaken,” she continued. “He was pissed. He couldn’t believe a woman would pass up the opportunity.” She added that he seemed to feel “entitled” to kiss her.
The one supposed witness, a relative, didn't see the actual kiss:
“I remember she was really freaked out,” said the relative. The relative didn’t see Heller’s entire interaction with Trump, but saw him get “in her face” and saw Heller pull away. “He was very forceful … She really was definitely affected by this man who was very aggressive toward her.”
Donald Trump responded:
On Saturday afternoon, the Trump campaign denied the accusation. “There is no way that something like this would have happened in a public place on Mother’s Day at Mr Trump’s resort,” spokesman Jason Miller said in a statement. “It would have been the talk of Palm Beach for the past two decades.
“The reality is this: for the media to wheel out a politically motivated Democratic activist with a legal dispute against this same resort owned by Mr Trump does a disservice to the public, and anyone covering this story should be embarrassed for elevating this bogus claim.”
It's one thing to accuse Trump of doing this in private, but in front of relatives and a room full of people at his resort when her husband and three children were present? Also, she is a Democrat activist:
2. Heller readily acknowledged that she is a Clinton supporter who would not have backed Trump regardless of how he behaved the one time they met. Heller met Clinton briefly at a March fundraiser, and in January she donated the individual maximum of $2,700 to Clinton’s campaign. She believes she has also attended a party where the Clintons were present.
In addition, her husband’s family is involved in a years-long effort to recover initiation fees that her late in-laws paid to join Mar-A-Lago. The club’s rules state that the fees are refundable under certain circumstances when an individual is no longer a member, and Heller has placed at least one phone call to a club manager attempting to recover the money, totaling several thousand dollars.
Conflict of interest much?
Cathy Heller has donated thousands of dollars to Democratic groups since at least 2007, including Obama and Hillary campaigns, according to FEC filings.
Just this year Cathy Heller has already donated the maximum $2700 to Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
She has been a registered active Democrat since at least 1988, according to Nexis:
Heller’s non-profit, on whose board she serves, honored Hillary Clinton and Chelsea Clinton in 2014:
The Guardian actually admits that Heller is a life-long Democrat and big Hillary donor, but doesn’t say anything about the much bigger conflict of interest:
Cathy Heller’s husband and son together run a New York City real estate development company called the Heller Organization, which is necessarily a business competitor of Donald Trump’s Trump Organization!
This massive conflict of interest with millions upon millions of dollars at stake was totally unmentioned by the lying media.
The New York Times revealed in 2015 that Heller’s son Adam and her husband Lloyd run a New York City real estate development company:
The Heller Organization is a clear business competitor to Donald Trump’s Trump Organization:
Nexis details confirm that these are all the same Hellers from the same New York City Heller family.
Speaking at a press conference organized by attorney Gloria Allred, Virginia described waiting for a car to pick her up at the 1998 U.S. Open in Queens, New York, when she noticed Trump and a few other men looking at her.
“Hey, look at this one, we haven’t seen her before,” Trump allegedly said to his friends. “Look at those legs.”
Virginia said Trump then walked over to her and grabbed her right arm. “And then his hand touched the right inside of my breast,” she recounted. She says she flinched, and Trump turned and said to her, “Don’t you know who I am?”
Right then, Virginia said, her car arrived, and she didn’t see Trump again for many years. The next time she saw him, he didn’t remember her.
“Perhaps you do not remember me,” she said Thursday, “but I can assure you I remember you.”
1. This one just sounds incredibly unbelievable. So Trump just happened to see her standing there, points out to his friends that he hasn't seen her before, and goes up and touches her in front of his friends? Then he remembers this woman who he hadn't seen before, only saw for what had to be mere minutes, and supposedly touched for a brief second YEARS LATER? YEARS? Do you know how many people Trump has come into contact with over the years?
2. She says this brief encounter with Trump apparently felt ashamed for years and unsure of what to wear. Listen, I'm a social conservative (while this woman is liberal), but if this happened to me I wouldn't allow such a brief interaction to impact my life at all. I'd figure it that I dealt with a jerk and move forward knowing that I didn't do anything wrong.
3. I cite the Huffington Post because she WORKS FOR the Huffington Post as a blogger. The Huffington Post is a liberal paper which puts this at the bottom of every article:
Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.
4. Here's her profile from the Huffington Post:
Karena is a wellness expert for the modern world. As a motivational speaker, energy healer, yogi, inspirational mentor and TV personality she shares simple and transformational tips for the mainstream world. As a child she was highly sensitive to angels and perceived the deep human need for sharing and uplifting one another. Karena began studying yoga in elementary school after a near death experience showed her the beauty of bringing the angelic to the earth. While Karena spent many years hiding her spiritual wisdom working as an actress and model, she is now sharing her tips with a highly accessible and uplifting style. Karena’s comforting wisdom reminds us to align, ask and allow. She encourages everyone to connect powerfully with their personal truth through love, compassion, inner beauty and radiance. Karena shares a radiant and healing presence which inspires others to practice the art or clearing and expanding. Karena believes love is the highest intelligence of the universe, and with love all things are possible. She believes that every encounter is an opportunity for the everyday miracles to blossom into existence. Karena writes for The Huffington Post and she was recently featured on Veria Living and Bravo TV. She is the talent in the highly acclaimed yoga video, ‘The Power of Kundalini Yoga’, which can be found at Target, Barnes and Noble and Best Buy. Karena is also the voice on the IOS APP called ‘Relax and Attract with Karena’, and she is currently writing her first book which will be published by Sounds True with the release date of January 1, 2017. Karena is a member of Oprah Winfrey’s Belief Team, and she recently spent an evening with Oprah at The United Nations. Her clients are often professionals and celebrities who find Karena’s style accessible and enjoyable. Karena is married with two children, and she lives in the suburbs of New York City.
This is all very new age to me. I believe in angels too, but this sounds more new age as opposed to the traditional Catholic/Christian vision of angels. It indicates to me that she is liberal and is not someone who would vote for Trump or any Republican. Her profile indicates that she obviously blogs for the liberal Huffington Post, was on Bravo TV (a liberal network), is a member of Oprah Winfrey's Belief Team (obviously Oprah is a liberal who supports Democrats) and was at the UN With Oprah, and her clients are professionals and celebrities (celebrities are usually Democrat and wouldn't want a traditional conservative, Christian (regarding Christian view of angels) Republican working with them).
5. Donald Trump's response:
“Discredited political operative Gloria Allred, in another coordinated, publicity seeking attack with the Clinton campaign, will stop at nothing to smear Mr. Trump. Give me a break. Voters are tired of these circus-like antics and reject these fictional stories and the clear efforts to benefit Hillary Clinton.”
6. Yes, that's right, she used Democrat Hillary lawyer Gloria Allred too.
Jessica Drake, 42, a porn star and sex educator, said in a statement released with a picture of her with Trump that during a golf tournament in Lake Tahoe “10 years ago”, the Republican presidential nominee “grabbed” her and two other unnamed women tightly and kissed them on the lips “without asking permission”
He then offered Drake $10,000 and the use of his private plane, she said, if she would agree to come back to his room and accompany him to a party.
She's a porn star AND a sex educator? I hope that isn't who they are bringing into schools.
1. Donald Trump, who was married, invited 3 women into his room he didn't know and kissed each one assembly line style? Just like the video said, eh? What a coincidence.
2. Donald Trump then proceeded to ask a porn star 3 times for sex, upping the ante by offering $10,000 and then a ride on his jet. I don't believe it.
3. She's a feminist Democrat (per GotNews they screen capped the following which I typed out:
"I don't often volunteer my political opinion, but in the past few days I've been asked many times, so I'll say this - there are many reasons to support Barack Obama's campaign for reelection. When he first took office, one of his first acts as commander in chief was to sign the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act into law. This important bill has served to break down wage-discrimination barriers for women and eradicate workplace inequality on many levels. Economically, he has pushed for New Deal-style initiatives geared to create jobs and get Americans working. He has eliminated "don't ask, don't tell," defended LGBT rights and officially supported the rights of same-sex couples to marry. I am pleased with what he has done so far, and I think it's important to remember that our nation did not arrive at its current condition overnight - it will take some time to truly mend and heal, and I am proud to endorse Obama as the best person to facilitate the necessary changes."
4. She just opened an online sex shop the day before her press conference:
The porn star who claims Donald Trump forcibly hugged and kissed her — then offered her $10,000 for a romp — launched her online sex shop just one day before leveling the allegations.
Wicked Pictures performer Jessica Drake is hawking dozens of sex toys, lubricants and porn videos — including her explicit “Guide to Wicked Sex” series — through the new site.
“I am thrilled to create a one-stop shop for everything about ‘Guide to Wicked Sex,’ including all of the amazing products that will enhance your sex life and bring you and your partner closer together,” Drake said in announcing her site’s launch on the blog .
5. Trump's response as she had a picture with Trump (not a picture in the hotel room but just at the golf tournament)
The Trump campaign said: “This story is totally false and ridiculous. The picture is one of thousands taken out of respect for people asking to have their picture taken with Mr Trump. Mr Trump does not know this person, does not remember this person and would have no interest in ever knowing her. This is just another attempt by the Clinton campaign to defame a candidate who just today is No 1 in three different polls.”
As far as this, various women have come forward to say that Trump was backstage when they were changing - citing what he said on Stern. They said he behaved inappropriately. I thought I would just post a few articles from people defending him.
NEW MEXICO (KRQE) – The former New Mexico Miss Teen USA is talking about Donald Trump visiting the contestant’s dressing room.
“I had all my clothes on. It was just someone coming in to say hello to us and wish us good luck. I didn’t even think twice about it,” Former NM Miss Teen USA Victoria Hughes said in a phone interview with KRQE News 13.
FIve other teen beauty queens have come forward telling “Buzzfeed News” teens were changing their clothes back in 1997 when Trump walked in.
One saying, they rushed to cover up and found it creepy.
But, Victoria Hughes,the contestant from Las Cruces, says what she saw was innocent.
“A lot of people have wondered why I’m saying he’s innocent when I’m not voting for him,” said Hughes. “Well, I wouldn’t want people to say false things about me. As a business owner. Maybe he did things, maybe he didn’t. But I personally didn’t see anything that night.”
She wrote on her Facebook page:
I was contacted today by a producer at ABC News in New York. She is wanting to question me regarding the Miss Teen USA allegations. They also let me know that they are reaching out to All of my fellow contestants from 1997. I am going to be very truthful and let ABC know that Donald Trump was an absolute gentleman. I never witnessed any inappropriate behavior whatsoever the entire 2 weeks that I participated in the pageant. I'm sure that none of my interview will make the news since I have nothing but positive things to say about my experience with Donald. I do find it interesting and important for people to know that these are the depths the media is going to for their smear campaign.
Madison Gesiotto ✔ @madisongesiotto
For the record: I competed in @MissUSA & @realDonaldTrump treated me w/ nothing but the upmost support &respect, both during& after my reign
A day later, Miss USA ended and I went on with my life. Little did I know, Mr. Trump and I would cross paths again, this time in a very different setting; CPAC 2015. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the Conservative Political Action Conference (popularly known as CPAC), it is put on by The American Conservative Union each year and is an event where conservatives from all over the country come together for education, leadership and advancement.
In 2015, I was attending CPAC as a guest of The Washington Times, the wonderful newspaper where I now write a weekly opinion column. During my time at CPAC that year, I tagged along with one of the reporters for some interviews. From Senator Ted Cruz to Dr. Ben Carson and Carly Fiorina, the reporter had a jam-packed day and I was thrilled to be along for the ride.
The last interview she had that day was with Mr. Trump. I was excited to hear what he had to say (and secretly had hoped he would admit that he was getting ready for a Presidential run, which he hinted at but did not say). To my pleasant surprise, Mr. Trump remembered me from Miss USA.
Mr. Trump was a complete gentleman. He took the time to talk to me about law school. I was close to finishing my first year at the time. He also asked me about my plans and goals after graduation, wishing me the best of luck in my future and complimenting me on my accomplishments up to that time. He even offered to let me interview him, despite the fact that his schedule was packed and he was already running behind.
I found Mr. Trump’s respectful behavior and sincere interest in what I had to say to be very refreshing, considering the ‘better than the little people’ mentality that many others in his position have been known to exhibit. He was respectful, kind and encouraging. Before leaving that day, we snapped a photo and he told me to “think big and never give up,” which is the same thing my parents had always told me.
Melissa Young, a former Miss Wisconsin, says Trump reached out to support her when she was hospitalized with a potentially deadly blood clot.
“Years after competing on his stage at Miss USA, I became extremely ill due to a doctor’s medical negligence,” Young told CNN. “I hadn’t seen or spoken to Mr. Trump, and I was in the hospital really fighting for my life.”
On the same day Young was given her last rights, she received a handwritten note from Trump addressed “to the bravest woman I know.”
“‘In that moment, it lifted my spirits,” she says. “He continued to reach out, to check on me, to check on my [7-year-old] son, to see how he was doing, personally calling me on the phone. And this was before he announced his was running for President.”
Young says Trump has always been kind to her and her son, who is Mexican-American.
“He has treated us with nothing but generosity, utmost respect and dignity,” she says. “He has never spoken to me about it or tooted his own horn about it. He really has been such a wonderful support system for me and my son.”
Several women have come forward to accuse Republican nominee Donald Trump of sexual misconduct and assault. As more women step forward to accuse the Republican presidential of inappropriate behavior, a former Miss Nebraska is defending Trump's character.
"I know so many young women that have competed in his pageants that have met him and had the exact same thing to say as me,” said Santley.
Santley said her interactions with the candidate were more than just kind, they were inspiring.
"I was really fortunate to get to have a really meaningful conversation with him more than once,” said Santley.
When Santley competed in 2002 her mother was very sick battling cancer after going through final rounds of chemo. Santley’s mother insisted on being there for her daughter. She says Trump was very kind to her and her family.
"He was there with an entourage of people and even if he wasn't I still would have felt as comfortable. He was a complete gentlemen and very respectful of us,” she told WOWT 6 News.
She says he did come to the dressing rooms to visit with each girl, but only to say ‘hi’ and welcome them
"I would have a completely different life today if I wasn't a participant,” Santley said.
Former Miss California USA is standing by Donald Trump in the wake of recent allegations of sexual misconduct.
“This is just another example of how 80-85% of the media is against Mr. Trump and they will do everything possible to try and discredit him, to try to smear him, to try to create stories and make up things to try and silence him. And this is a movement that’s going on. And they want to stop this movement. And it’s obviously an attempt to try and silence him.”
The former beauty queen said she has spent time with Trump and noted that he has “always been respectful of women.”
“I just find it a little opportunistic that these women, decades later, are coming forward during the most important election in the history of the United States and saying that Mr. Trump allegedly harassed them or touched them,” Prejean said. “I wasn’t there, but I just think it’s a little opportunistic at this point to come out and say these things about Mr. Trump when he’s winning so far.”
This isn’t the first time the media has cast Trump in a negative light, according to Prejean, who said a passage in her book was taken out of context Opens a New Window. by a reporter in order to further attack the GOP nominee.
“[The media] made it seem like they did an exclusive interview with me, and I said these negative things about Mr. Trump, when if they just read a couple sentences down in my book they would have learned that I have the utmost respect for Mr. Trump. And I even said in my book that I support him and I owe a lot to him,” Prejean explained.
Katie Blair — who was crowned Miss Teen USA in 2006 — defended Trump after multiple other former contestants claimed he walked in on girls changing during a different pageant in 1997.
"As far as the rumors surrounding him coming backstage and things like that, dressing rooms — absolutely not," Blair, 28, said in a video posted by TMZ. "I never experienced that. I don't know anyone that has."
She then contended that if anything like that ever occurred, the women involved were probably "well aware" that Trump was coming back there.
But Blair — who was also named Miss USA California in the Trump-owned pageant in 2011 — says the fast-paced nature of live TV would've made it logistically impossible for the Republican candidate to be moseying backstage during the show.
"He's not putzing around back there while girls are just stark naked," she says in the video. "There's just literally no time, no space."
"I never had a bad experience with him and I have great respect for him as a boss, as a businessman," she tells the camera in the clip.
Chelsea Cooley competed in the Republican presidential nominee's Miss Universe competition in 2005, after being crowned Miss USA in the same year.
Soon after, the North Carolina beauty formed a friendship with the billionaire reality TV star, and he became her business mentor.
