    Do you think all the women coming forward with their stories about Trump are telling the truth.

    I find it hard to believe that he would run for political office with all this in his past.  He is not stupid and knows how dirty political elections get.  Why wait until just before election to come forward?

    I suspect some of them are being paid, and some are seeking fame and fortune by lying.  And for some it is probably wishful thinking.

    But all of this was a long time ago, just like Bill Clinton's rapes and affairs.

    I'm not sure what any of this has to do with the upcoming election.  I for one will be glad when the election is over so we can stop listening to all this crap that means nothing today.

      I agree too. If they would have complained when it happened they would have gained nothing. The same with Bill Cosby. If the first one 1 or 2 would have said something maybe no one else would have had to endure, if it ever happened in the 1st place.

      I also agree Mike. This is a desperate move by the liberals, it seems like they think they are losing big time.

      Greg, seriously? Women are responsible for putting themselves in an even MORE vulnerable position after being assaulted so that the man won't continue assaulting people? How about we hold the man accountable?  FFS.

      How about we hold Hillary ACCOUNTABLE?

      Oh my god.  What does Hillary have to do with your victim blaming?

    Perhaps because the video where he said he did those things has just come out publicly and a lot of the time women don't come forward until there's something else to support their accusations (like a man saying he kisses/touches women without their consent on tape, or other women coming forward) because surprise, surprise... people tend not to believe them otherwise.  And these ladies are just extra lucky because there's something to back it up and people STILL don't believe them.

    Donald Trump thinks he's above everything and that he can just do whatever he wants, I doubt a past of sexual assault would deter him.  He's probably under the assumption that he won't face any consequences for it because he's got money and power.  And he's not wrong.  That's the unfortunate truth of sexual assault (and most crimes) - if you're a rich white dude you're probably going to get the benefit of the doubt.

    I don't know if these women are telling the truth or not but the cards are already stacked against them being simply because they're women and they're accusing a successful man.  So I'm already prepared to give them the benefit of the doubt over Donald.  Add on the fact that he actually SAID he did those things and I'm even more inclined to believe it.

    I wonder if some normal black man was caught on tape saying he sexually assaulted women, and then multiple women came forward to confirm it, if people would be so quick to believe that he was innocent?

      I think if he were black it would be different sorry to say.  People are believing it against Trump because Hillary says it is true.  I am just tired of hearing i It gets more air time than important political issues.  Trump is hurting himself also.

      I have to say it again, it is stone cold frozen Red Herrings.
      Anyone foolish enough to vote against Trump for this reason ate that red herring.

    No. The allegations by these women already have holes in them (saying you were going to a concert that wasn't held on that date, describing a 727 when none were on that route at that time, the implausibility of just being invited to first class) are a start.
    The fact that both women donated money to Clinton also means the act of "coming forward" is likely political.
    The fact that they sit on the allegations for years, when they could have sued a billionaire years ago, adds to the suspicion they are false.
    The fact that these allegations ONLY come out after Clinton releases a ten year old tape of Trump saying something crude proves it is all political.

      This particular case aside, I NEED to point out the danger in assuming not coming forward straight away is a sign of accusations being false. It's VERY common for people not to come forward for several years. These assumptions just make it harder.
