The Democrats were hoping to make Americans think President Donald Trump is a ruthless rapist. Well, they just got badly burned by E. Jean Carroll, who caused CNN’s Anderson Cooper to abruptly cut to commercial after she claimed, “People think of rape as being sexy.” That’s not all that happened, and it makes the Trump-haters look like fools. You’ll love this.
E. Jean Carroll was a nobody who made headlines last week with a rather bizarre accusation that President Donald Trump raped her. The 75-year-old claims Trump attacked her in a dressing room at Bergdorf Goodman Department Stores in 1995 or 1996.
Caroll has always been seeking stardom. She had advice columns. She wrote for Saturday Night Live for one year: 1975. Now, she is hoping to sell her new book where she accuses Trump and other famous men of sexually accosting her. Carroll uses a photo of Trump, his first wife Ivana, and her at some New York party as “proof” he knows her.
The whole thing stinks to high heaven.
When a reporter asked Mr. Trump about the photograph, he said “give me a break,” noting he was standing with his coat on and had his back to the camera.
“It’s a total false accusation,” he said. “I don’t know anything about her. She’s made this charge against others, and you know, people have to be careful, because they are playing with very dangerous territory.”

Which brings us to the timing of this accusation. The Democrats are desperate to paint the president as a ruthless rapist during this election cycle, and they were hoping E. Jean Carroll could fit the bill. However, they made one huge mistake.
E. Jean Carroll is mentally unbalanced.
In fact, Carroll’s appearance on Anderson Cooper’s show last night blew-up the Democrats big dream. In addition to personifying an abject lack of credibility, Ms. Carrol just imploded on CNN with Anderson Cooper, explaining her definition of rape is not sexual, nor does it include sex.
Anderson Cooper cut to commercial knowing he was talking to a real nutjob.
“Sexual violence is in every country in every strata of society, and I just feel that so many women are undergoing sexual violence,” Carroll explained. “Mine was short. I got out. I’m happy now. I’m moving on. And I think of all the women who are enduring constant sexual violence. So this one incident, this one, what, three minutes in this little dressing room, I just say it’s a fight. That way I’m not the victim, right? I’m not the victim.”
“You don’t feel like a victim?” Cooper replied.
“I was not thrown on the ground and ravished, which the word rape carries so many sexual connotations,” she said. “This was not sexual. It just – it hurt.”
“I think most people think of rape as a violent assault,” Cooper said.
“I think most people think of rape as being sexy – think of the fantasies,” she added.
Rather than follow up on that insanity, a visibly and audibly rattled Cooper — his voice shaking and stumbling — responded, “Hmm, we’re, uh, gonna take a quick break.”

To begin with, her nearly 25-year-old accusation against Trump, her claim he raped her (although she now says it wasn’t rape, but a “fight”) at Bergdorf Goodman Department Store in Manhattan, is ludicrous.
Rape? In a department store? In Manhattan? Are you kidding me?
One scream and Trump’s entire life would have been over. She claims the store was empty at the time and it all went down in a dressing room…
Empty? After five p.m.? No employees around? At Bergdorf’s?
But again, we’re supposed to believe Trump would risk everything: his reputation, his business, his freedom, his marriage (to Marla Maples), to rape a 52-year-old woman in a public place?
None of this is remotely credible.
Carroll appeared on CNN’s New Day, the least-watched show in all of cable news, and appeared to be even more scattered and confused. New Day co-hostess Alisyn Camerota attempts to keep Carroll on track, which included putting words in her mouth.
In this interview, though, Carroll backs off her rape allegation.
“I don’t use the word [rape]. I have difficulty with the word. I see it as a fight.”
Camerota then spends an endless amount of time assuring Carroll she was raped and ends her tirade with, “You were legally raped. That’s what it was.”
Carroll just stares at Camerota as if to say, Okay, if you say so.
E. Jean Carroll alleges Donald Trump attacked her at a New York luxury department store in the late 1990s.
Trump has denied the allegations, saying, “I have no idea who this woman is.”

We can’t imagine anybody giving any credence to Ms.Carroll’s claims.
This is the beginning of the 2020 election cycle. We can look forward to the Democratic machine dragging other women into the limelight who will accuse the president of rape. It’s all part of their game plan. The American people are too smart to buy these ridiculous stories from unstable women who have nothing to lose. America has everything to lose, and that’s why E. Jean Carroll’s 15 minutes are up.
