The statute of limitations expired long ago.

Golly, you should tell the Judge! Seems like that would be a pretty big cause for a mistrial. Oh, wait. There was this new law passed. And the statute of limitations has most certainly not passed for defamation.

Is there any evidence? It is her word against his. That makes this a politically motivated ploy.

Only his words and actions over the last 50 years that match up almost perfectly with what’s being claimed here. In a civil proceeding, that’s more than enough.

How convenient that a law was passed specifically to allow this woman to sue Trump.

Its for victims of people like Weinstein. That Drumph behaves in a similar sexual predatory manner is his own fault.

Tapioca had a hard job to thread the needle between challenging her story and coming off as an abusive bully.

He did about as badly as one would expect a Trump lawyer to do.

He didn’t dent her credibility or her story to any significant extent, he made her cry, and when he offered her a break and she refused, made her look resilient.

There’s are reasons Trump is in Scotland opening another money losing golf course:

He wasn’t invited to the Coronation and he thinks he is likely to lose his case and for all public intents and purposes be found guilty of rape and he wants to be as far away as possible when that happens.

Who knows what this woman's intentions are. 

Justice and to clear her name.

It is her word against his. That makes this a politically motivated ploy.

No it doesn’t.

He's a horn dog but it does not make him guilty 20 or 30 years later

That’s the purpose of a trial. It may well make him guilty 27 years later.

There are women who line up to accuse successful men of rape when they seduce them

There are women who are raped, I’d wager that happens far more often than your scenario.

The Trump boosters here always seem to make the same mistake - failing to read the article...

This is a civil trial, not criminal - there is no guilty or innocent...one side convinces a judge or jury through a preponderance of the evidence that the claimant's accusations are true, or they're not.

On one side you have a noted journalist with a distinguished career, and on the other you have the guy that bragged about assaulting women on tape, has 25 other accusers, and is on record attending many "parties" with his neighbor and BFF Jeffry Epstein...

Then the claimant put herself on the stand to testify while the defendant took off overseas dodging going under oath...likely at the pleading of his lawyer...

Pretty easy...

One thing that these women like E Jean Carroll, Anita Hill (who testified against Justice Clarence Thomas) or Christine Blasey Ford (who testified against Brett Kavanaugh) all have in common is that they're far more respectable as telling the truth than the men they're accusing of rape, sexual assault or sexual harassment. Maybe they ain't lying! Maybe they're telling the God's honest truth! Meanwhile, these men, these degenerates, are running our lives.

So you believe Donald Trump at the height of his celebrity was going see through lingerie shopping with a random unknown 50 year old woman he met at a department store door nearly 3 decades ago?

She wasn’t 50. She was in her mid-40s. And she wasn’t some unknown. She was a widely read columnist.

And given his long, self-described history of sexual harassment, predation and just general creepiness, yes. That’s exactly the kind of thing I believe he would do.

4 ( +5 / -1 )

I guess so, just odd how all these lawsuits come out at the exact same time.

Must be another planned conspiracy with everyone teaming up against Don the Con.

Prosecutor: Did you rape E Jean Carrol

donald: she is not my type

Prosecutor: Shows picture of E Jean Carrol

donald: That’s my ex wife Marla Maples

The only defense left for donald now is dementia!!!!

one side convinces a judge or jury through a preponderance of the evidence that the claimant's accusations are true, or they're not.

So you wont be here claiming he was found “guilty of rape” if the verdict is in favor of this psychotic woman?

You sure mirror your Ultra MAGA King - have any other cheap insults to throw at Carroll? Ones that just help her defamation case?

sure you will be, without a doubt.

That sure sounds like your 2020 prediction; "Trump will win on a landslide, no doubt"....

Preponderance of the evidence shows that there is no evidence.

Trump U law school grad...

Plus she can’t give a date, month or year so that Trump can easily show he was somewhere else on that day.

With Stormy?

So that would be false accusations.

Good description of the "Big Lie"....

Justice and to clear her name. 

How so?

He called her a liar. I don’t think she is. We’ll have to wait and see what the verdict is.

No it doesn’t. 

Ironic after so many years and when all these lawsuits started to fly at Trump she comes forward, coincidence? 

I guess you could tell Tacopina to try having the case dismissed on the grounds of being ‘ironic’ and a ‘coincidence’ but don’t get your hopes up.

That’s the purpose of a trial. It may well make him guilty 27 years later. 

Based on….?

The verdict. Wait and see.

The unintended inference being that if she had been his "type", shed have been worthy of being raped.

Excellent work, Don. Just stunning how stupid this " man" truly is.

 this supposedly happened in 1996. 27 years ago.

We always hear about laws being broken and finding justice years and even decades later. Look at Harvey Weinstein and Bill Crosby. Trump is just another piece of meat in the court of law (now that he is NOT president - right?). It doesn't matter love or hate about anyone, it's about the evidence. And Trump people are spending their life savings to donate to his legal cause like the followers of Jim Jones.

3 ( +4 / -1 )

Because those women feared their lives and their families, Trump will hire someone to silence them. He is a sex predator and he still like being that. Pity America had a criminal being the head of state and above law!

So you believe Donald Trump at the height of his celebrity was going see through lingerie shopping with a random unknown 50 year old woman he met at a department store door nearly 3 decades ago?

I notice you mention her age several times, which seems to be a point you want to get across. This is similar to Trump saying "She's not my type." As if older women can't be raped, or that a woman's looks matter to a rapist when he finds an opportunity, or - more accurately - as if Jean wasn't beautiful at 50, which she certainly was.

Do I believe a respected journalist over a man who bragged about sexually assaulting women? Yes.

1 ( +5 / -4 )

Just in case she wins are you willing to accept the courts verdict?

Are you If Trump wins?

Of course. Your turn.

1 ( +3 / -2 )

no, they will just say he wasnt found "innocent".

Well, if he loses you don’t need to make up a conspiracy about it because you already have.

1 ( +3 / -2 )

No, but I think after all these years, I don’t believe the case has any real standing as of now.

So you’re sure the court will bring a verdict against Carroll?

Just in case she wins are you willing to accept the courts verdict?

0 ( +2 / -2 )

According to Carroll's testimony, Donald Trump raped her at the age of 52, that was 27 years ago. Trump was more creepy that people have realised. He was not just a sex predator but also an abuser, he hates middle aged women!

0 ( +2 / -2 )

She wasn’t 50. She was in her mid-40s

something is off in the age claim.

its 2023- this supposedly happened in 1996. 27 years ago.

She is 79 now.

The 79-year-old said

79-27= 52.

-1 ( +2 / -3 )

Just in case she wins are you willing to accept the courts verdict?

Are you If Trump wins?

-1 ( +2 / -3 )

According to Carroll's testimony, Donald Trump raped her at the age of 52, that was 27 years ago. Trump was more creepy that people have realised. He was not just a sex predator but also an abuser, he hates middle aged women!

If these allegations are true, so far they are just allegations.

-1 ( +2 / -3 )

no, they will just say he wasnt found "innocent".

-2 ( +2 / -4 )

Of course. Your turn.

Accept it, no choice, believe it, not sure depends on what they can provide as evidence and not here say.

Prosecutor: Shows picture of E Jean Carrol

donald: That’s my ex wife Marla Maples

Yeah, a black and white 1987 picture.

Im sure she looked exactly the same in 1996 when this supposedly happened, right?

-3 ( +2 / -5 )

Well, if he loses you don’t need to make up a conspiracy about it because you already have.

Big “if” never made any conspiracy theories, but we shall see.

-4 ( +1 / -5 )

So it doesn’t bother you that she told CNN that rape is “sexy” and her story is mostly based on the plot of a crime TV show that aired at the time she claims it happened?

journalists write stories, don’t they? How would you know she was “certainly beautiful” at 50? pretty broad assumption not supported by what we see now.

-5 ( +2 / -7 )

Justice and to clear her name. 

How so?

No it doesn’t.

or that a woman's looks matter to a rapist when he finds an opportunity,

No. but they would matter for a woman I supposedly chose to model what see through lingerie I was buying for a 25 year old girlfriend would look like on a lady.

especially if I were a billionaire and could choose anyone I like to model it for me.

So it doesn’t bother you that she told CNN that rape is “sexy” and her story is mostly based on the plot of a crime TV show that aired at the time she claims it happened?

The second on the 4 frivolous lawsuits.

-5 ( +2 / -7 )

Not to mention that this all came to existence when, at a cocktail party of Trump haters, George Conway recommended she “get Trump” by filing a lawsuit.

-5 ( +2 / -7 )

he shouldn’t have gone out of his way to make so damned many enemies.

How terrible he was to make an enemy of George Conway by….employing and empowering his wife as his presidential campaign manager.

he has done nothing to the majority of these haters. Even if he had, that doesn’t allow or justify false accusations in a court of law.

-5 ( +2 / -7 )

He called her a liar. I don’t think she is. We’ll have to wait and see what the verdict is. 

I guess so, just odd how all these lawsuits come out at the exact same time.

No, but I think after all these years, I don’t believe the case has any real standing as of now. I mean, if Juanita Broderick pressed charges against Bill Clinton I don’t think it would go anywhere.

The verdict. Wait and see.

Yes

-5 ( +2 / -7 )

“You would call police if a mailbox was attacked,” Tacopina asked, “but not if you yourself were attacked?”

This says it all.

-5 ( +1 / -6 )

Incredible that their Russian collusion concoction failed, now they are pushing elderly women to manufacture these fantastical stories.

-5 ( +1 / -6 )

So you wont be here claiming he was found “guilty of rape” if the verdict is in favor of this psychotic woman?

sure you will be, without a doubt.

He's a horn dog but it does not make him guilty 20 or 30 years later. There are women who line up to accuse successful men of rape when they seduce them, just like the girl in in Vail did to Kobe Bryant (she was a known entity in town), and then cry rape.

-7 ( +2 / -9 )

Carroll filed suit against Trump in November, under a New York state law that temporarily allows sexual assault victims to sue over alleged attacks that happened even decades ago.

How convenient that a law was passed specifically to allow this woman to sue Trump.

-7 ( +3 / -10 )

Not buying it. trump was not running around NYC asking 50 year old women to try on see through bodysuits.
