Star Witness Against Trump Disintegrates on Live TV

Popular Elle magazine columnist E. Jean Carroll came forward with sexual assault allegations against the president last week.

The 75-year-old Manhattanite has made the rounds on cable news detailing the alleged rape, which reportedly occurred in a department store dressing room sometime between 1995 and 1996.

However, Carroll's remarks about rape fantasies have left many, including CNN's Anderson Cooper, stammering.

Additional details leave others scratching their heads. (Fox News)
 

Carroll says she was devastated by what happened, but she did not report it to law enforcement for some reason. Nor did she write about it -- though she is a writer during Trump's presidential campaign or for the last two and a half years of his presidency.

Instead, she waited nearly a quarter century to include the story in a book that is literally entitled, "What Do We Need Men For?" In that book, by the way, Carroll also accuses CBS head Les Moonves of sexual assault. She writes that Moonves attacked her in an elevator in Los Angeles after she had finished interviewing him for a piece in Esquire magazine. And yet, amazingly, she never mentioned the attack in the story that she wrote about Moonves.

Both Trump and Les Moonves, by the way, deny that any of this ever happened, and there's no corroborating evidence that it did. And yet, according to The Atlantic, and HuffPo and Stephen Colbert and countless other arbiters of American news, Carroll's allegation against the president -- which is a felony -- is "credible." It's a "credible" accusation.

Harvard graduate Lawrence O'Donnell was so impressed by it that he gave Carroll half his show.


Carroll said she wouldn't bring rape charges against the president, something New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and others are drooling over.

Instead, she finds leveling such charges disrespectful to the women on the border who are being "raped around the clock." 

Whether or not she's claiming border patrol agents are raping migrant women at immigration detention centers remains unclear.

Carroll adds that the one thing she wishes she'd done differently is asked for Trump's tax returns.
