On Saturday, Donald Trump addressed a rally in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania saying the women who have accused him of unwanted groping are making the accusations up. Trump vowed he will sue these accusers once this whole election business is over with.
Trump also went on to accuse the media of only making the situation worse, saying the accusers get unprecedented wall-to-wall media coverage with no fact-checking. This coming from a guy whose surrogates are saying fact-checking is for losers. In the past few weeks alone, 10 women have come forward accusing Trump of sexual misconduct, with many being backed up by witnesses. Trump continues to deny all allegations and did his favorite thing to intimidate them; threaten to sue:
“Every woman lied when they came forward to hurt my campaign. Total fabrication. The events never happened. Never. All of these liars will be sued after the election is over.”
This is not the first time Trump has threatened to sue someone for riling him up. He has constantly threatened to take The New York Times and other media outlets to court for their coverage of him, but as of now, no one has been served. Trump may see these threats as intimidation tools, but he’s made so many that people see them as a joke.
