Our tiny hands, big-prick mind president is running away from his own confirmation of being a sexual predator on the 'Access Hollywood' tape. After apologizing for his comments a year ago, Trump now challenges the authenticity of the tape.
Trump is squirming in his Oval Office hot seat, not only because of the Mueller investigation, but over the growing #MeToo campaign and, in particular, the Roy Moore-Doug Jones Alabama senate race.
According to The New York Times, Trump views the recent sexual misconduct allegations against Alabama Republican senate candidate Roy Moore as being akin to his own accusations.
The Times reports: "He sees the calls for Mr. Moore to step aside as a version of the response to the now-famous Access Hollywood tape, in which he boasted about grabbing women’s genitalia, and the flood of groping accusations against him that followed soon after. He suggested to a senator earlier this year that it was not authentic, and repeated that claim to an adviser more recently. "(Note that in the hours after the tape was released in October 2016, Trump acknowledged that the voice was his, and he apologized.)
Republican candidate Moore is accused by eight women of pursuing romantic relationships with them when they were teenagers. At the time he was an assistant district attorney in his 30s. Two of the women have accused Moore of assault or molestation, which he vehemently denies.
Besides Trump's endorsement of Roy Moore for the Senate, Trump feels the need to back the popular argument among Alabama men, asking why the women didn't come forward sooner. Numerous stories confirm that Trump doesn't believe the women accusing Moore, just as he accuses all the women alleging sexual misconduct by him as being liars.
