IMPEACH THE MOTHER FUCKER AGAIN!
maybe nobody in the history of the world has handled being assaulted by a powerful bully the way E. Jean Carroll has.
wondering if she's a thorn in Trump's side like nobody else he's ever assaulted. She has the heart of a lion.
can't stop checking her tweets. Relentless, and somehow (I don't know how) she manages to make them funny:

NEW YORK (AP) — When the U.S. Supreme Court decided this month that the presidency isn’t a shield against a New York prosecutor’s criminal investigation, the justices didn’t say whether the same goes for civil suits against the president in state courts.
That has quickly become a question in two closely watched defamation lawsuits filed by women who say President Donald Trump smeared them while denying their sexual assault allegations.
Lawyers for the women, E. Jean Carroll and Summer Zervos, are now trying to persuade New York courts that the U.S. Supreme Court’s rulingstrengthens their arguments for letting the suits go forward. Trump’s attorneys are contending just the opposite.
The dispute comes with one of the cases now before New York’s highest court, which is weighing whether a sitting president is constitutionally protected from being sued in state courts.
“The answer is no” under the U.S. Supreme Court’s reasoning, Zervos attorneys Beth Wilkinson and Moira Penza wrote in a letter Friday to the top-level state Court of Appeals.
Although the Supreme Court case was about a criminal probe, Zervos’ and Carroll’s lawyers maintain that the justices rejected essentially the same presidential immunity claims that Trump’s attorneys have raised in the lawsuits.
“The Supreme Court has now spoken,” Carroll lawyer Roberta Kaplan wrote to the judge in her defamation case last week. She said it follows from the ruling “that Trump’s assertions of immunity in this case … are completely baseless.”
Trump’s lawyer Marc Kasowitz said that doesn’t follow at all.
A New York state Supreme Court judge on Thursday denied President Donald Trump's effort to delay the proceedings in a defamation lawsuit filed against him by longtime magazine columnist E. Jean Carroll, a move that allows her to pursue his DNA sample in an effort to prove claims he sexually assaulted her in the 1990s.
It looks like E. Jean Carroll is starting to interview her fellow Trump assaultees for The Atlantic. From yesterday:
Fifteen years ago, the writer Natasha Stoynoff went to Mar-a-Lago to interview Donald and Melania Trump on the occasion of their first anniversary.
"One of the Presidential Candidates had over two dozen valid sexual-assault accusations one including a 13-year old girl in 2016 and he was still the most featured candidate on cable news. Trump was given enormous amounts of free air time cause he made them $$."

When I try to determine the timelines of Melania Trump giving birth in Manhattan and her husband feeling up a young law-school grad at a Santa Monica hotel, the lawyer emits a bitter, sarcastic chuckle. “I don’t think Melania being perfect or giving birth would stop Trump,” she says. “I don’t think anything would stop him. He probably did the same thing to 10 different women that night. That’s the thing. I was not special.”

E. Jean continues her series for The Atlantic, interviewing her fellow Trump assaultees:
‘I Moved on Her Very Heavily’: Part 3
Again and again we see Jessica, one of the first women to publicly accuse Trump of sexual assault in 2016, on the front page of The New York Times or sitting for an interview with Anderson Cooper—and what do we see?
“I know that if the story gets any attention, the first thing Trump will say is that I’m not pretty enough,” Jessica says. “I know instinctively that’s what he’s going to say.”
Trump, in fact, yammers about Jessica’s accusations at a rally, and hoots, “Believe me, she would not be my first choice!”
“I want to tell everyone,” Jessica says. “In my 30s, I’m not bad looking. I certainly never compete in any beauty contest, but I am pretty enough. Thank you.”
anybody would be a better president than this
yet another credible account, it seems like this lout assaulted people like it was his full-time job:
Dorris was dating a friend of Trump's at the time, Jason Binn, who did not return The Guardian's requests for comment. Lawyers for the president reportedly told The Guardian that Binn had also questioned Dorris's account of the alleged attack.
Numerous confidantes of Dorris corroborated her account to The Guardian, telling the newspaper that they heard the same accusations made by Dorris in the days following her alleged attack. Dorris's mother and a therapist also confirmed that she spoke to them about the incident in years after it allegedly occurred.
Remarkable to read how consistent the allegations - all denied by the president - have been over the years. The Guardian today:
Allegations against president span decades, with Amy Dorris at least the 26th woman to come forward

Dorris lives in Palm Beach county, not far from Mar-a-Lago. “I have a lot of friends that are Trump supporters, so it’s just been a little difficult,” she said.
“I don’t feel safe,” she said, but added: “It’s time to speak out.”
She said she was not coming forward for “political reasons”. “I’ve always been independent and I’ve voted Republican many times. If he was a Democrat I would still come forward,” she said. “It’s about the example he’s setting. He’s shut down every woman who has come forward.”
She added: “I’ve noticed a shift in how women are being treated since he became president … so I am coming out for me, for my kids.”
