From the very moment that Donald Trump stepped off of that golden escalator on onto the political scene, there have been numerous ugly claims made against him, by a number of disparate women.
The most prominent, of course, was the story being told by Stormy Daniels – the adult film actress – who claimed that the New York business mogul paid her a hefty sum to keep quiet about an affair they had together over a dozen years ago.
Now, just in time for the 2020 election, another woman has come forward with a tawdry tale about Trump, and the President was swift in his denial.
President Trump’s campaign denied a report that he sexually assaulted a former model at the U.S. Open tennis tournament in 1997, an allegation that was reported Thursday by The Guardian.
Amy Dorris accused Trump of approaching her outside the bathroom in a box at the event, grabbing her, “assaulting her all over her body” and sticking his tongue down her throat, according to The Guardian. The publication reported that Dorris felt “sick” and “violated” after the alleged assault.
“The allegations are totally false,” Trump campaign legal advisor Jenna Ellis said in a statement. “We will consider every legal means available to hold The Guardian accountable for its malicious publication of this unsubstantiated story. This is just another pathetic attempt to attack President Trump right before the election.”
Ellis’ work of tying the claims to the election was a bit on-the-nose, but demonstrates the reality of a precocious political season.
