As Twitchy reported earlier, in an upcoming New York magazine piece, writer E. Jean Carroll recounts the time she was allegedly sexually assaulted by Donald Trump in a Bergdorf Goodman changing room (which Trump has denied).
Any rape allegation is to be taken seriously, but things took a weird turn when Carroll told Lawrence O’Donnell in an interview that the reason she wouldn’t press charges is that it would be “disrespectful to the women who are down on the border who are being raped around the clock.”
If that bizarre answer gave you a suspicion that this all might be politically motivated, enjoy this clip in which she says she wishes she would have asked Trump for his tax returns in exchange for her age.
E. Jean Carroll says she wishes she would have asked @realDonaldTrump for his TAX RETURNS when she allegedly met him at the Bergdorf Goodman department store in the mid 90's .

No, this isn’t political…?

His tax returns from the future? She just gave herself away…

Lisa, how would this person think to ask private citizen Donald J Trump for his tax returns in the 70’s? Conversation starter perhaps? Lol

Anyone who rushed to give this woman air time… pic.twitter.com/BWj2GRQW1L

The thing is they don’t think they have. Then need her story to be real so they’ll believe it & promote her no matter what

Shame on everyone who gives this woman a platform for her nonsense.

MSNBC and CNN will have her on more than Avenatti

Hey, @MichaelAvenatti here is another client for you!!

She really delivers an animated and entertaining description of her department store rape that she just now decided to mention at the launch of her new book

She seems to have a very strange form of PTSD following such a traumatic event?
— Spock’s Brain (@MarkHenri2) June 23, 2019
She’s very traumatized. Telling her story like it was the Night Before Christmas.
— HuntinDogDave (@powersfour) June 22, 2019
Sounds like she’s describing a dream. ?

The accusations are never official and in a proper court setting to stand against scrutiny because they don't meet any legal criteria. Instead it's viscous, unsubstantiated hearsay. But it does drive hits and page views and it gets you infamously known.

Her 15 minutes are at 14:30.
— Scooter Boof Woodknuckle (@vvmeier2) June 22, 2019
She found a way to get on tv and she took it. She wants his tax returns, she won’t go after him because of the people at the border… give me a break
— Aron Bronson (@AronBronson1) June 22, 2019
Did I get this right? She doesnt remember the year?
— Bodezaffa (@Bodezaffa) June 23, 2019
wow, was it 95 or 96? No one was there? He shouted in the store and no one noticed? There are just way too many holes in this recount of events.
— CrashOverride (@Pcjeffmac) June 22, 2019
It’s so clear — Trump colluded with Bergdorf Goodman (which is secretly owned by Russia) to have the employees of the store abandon the lingerie department and leave the dressing room door unlocked so he could attack this woman. O’Donnell is happy to promote this “news” story.
— TreeFarmer (@TreeFarmFarmer) June 23, 2019
The more she talks the deeper the hole she digs for herself. Sad really. This is really a low point for America. That it has come down to this.

I love the part where she says she would never press charges because she thinks it would be disrespectful to others. What the hell is that all about? ?
— Gabrielle (@DGCBcardiac96) June 22, 2019
Two things are unquestionably true:
1. None of us know if she's telling the truth or not.
2. She's a bit "off". Maybe more than a BIT.
— Conservative in Marin (@JNOV57) June 22, 2019
If she is telling the truth, this interview with O’Donnell was not the way to make her story any more credible.
NEVER MIND? E. Jean Carroll tells Lawrence O'Donnell it would be 'disrespectful' to file criminal rape charges against Trump https://t.co/HQThMDsSf5
