The Videos of and Allegations Against Donald Trump


billy-bush-donald-trump-and-soap-actress-arianne-zucker-circa-2005d-jpeg

The most recent ruckus involving the surfaced videos of and allegations against Donald Trump has been a top subject of supreme discussion and debate all around the nation. Media pundits and journalists have been on record, including top Republican officials such as governors, congressmen, and senators, as blasting Trump over the comments he made circa 2005 regarding a conversation he had with then-Access Hollywood star Billy Bush (who’s a current, although now suspended, co-host of NBC‘s Today Show) – a conversation regarding a woman that Trump failed to hit on (who turns out to be none other than then-Hollywood Access lead star Nancy O’Dell) that was caught on a hot microphone in which he stated the following:* {*Note: A video is included as well.]

Donald Trump: I moved on her, and I failed. I’ll admit it.** [**Second Note: The tape was recorded several months after he married his third wife, Melania, who was pregnant with their son Barron.]

Another Voice: Whoa!

Trump: I did try and fuck her. She was married. [Continues.]  And I moved on her very heavily. In fact, I took her out furniture shopping. She wanted to get some furniture. I said, “I’ll show you where they have some nice furniture.” 

Trump: I moved on her like a bitch, but I couldn’t get there. And she was married. Then all of a sudden I see her, she’s now got the big phony tits and everything. She’s totally changed her look.”

 [At that point in the recording, Trump and Bush begin to notice and see Arianne Zucker, the star of Days of Our Lives who is waiting to escort them into the soap opera set of the show.]

Billy Bush: Your girl’s hot as shit. In the purple.

Trump: Whoa! Whoa! I’ve got to use some Tic Tacs, just in case I start kissing her. You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything.

Billy Bush: Whatever you want.” 

Trump: Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything.

Of course the Donald was on the Howard Stern Show circa 1997, making horrendous comments about women with whom he has had sex, referring to the acts as his “personal Vietnam,” which can be viewed in the following video:

Here’s a YouTube of that video as well:

 

It doesn’t help the fact that People Magazine journalist Natasha Stoynoff recalls her encounter with Trump, in which she claims that the Donald “sexually assaulted” her. This is how she details it:

Of course, according to an NBC News piece titled “The Allegations Women Have Made Against Donald Trump,” there have been allegations advanced by other women and individuals such as Trump’s ex-wife Ivana (who claims, as revived by the Daily Beast, that he “raped” her in 1989 but didn’t open up to that account until she reportedly told her friends about it, which basically and partly the subject of a  1993 published book titled “Lost Tycoon: The Many Lives of Donald Trump,”) Jill Harth (1992), Jane Doe (1994), former Miss Utah Temple Daggart McDowell (1997), former Miss Washington Cassandra Searless (2013), some former crew of The Apprentice, former Miss Vermont Teen USA Maria Billado , former Miss New Mexico Teen USA Victoria Hughes, other unnamed Miss USA pageants (2001), former Miss Arizona Tasha Dixon (2001), Jessica Leeds (1980s), Rachel Crooks (2005), Mindy McGillivay (2003), Kristin Anderson (1990s), The Apprentice Season Five contestant Summer Zervos (2007), former Miss New Hampshire Bridget Sullivan, and New York City resident Cathy Heller (1997). Other people include an unnamed friend of CNN reporter and OutFront host Erin Burnett (2010) and former Miss North Carolina Samantha Holvey (2006).

Once the videos and the allegations came out, it’s become a media storm ever since. U.S. House of Representative Jason Chaffetz, according to Politico, told CNN in the following video:

Even Paul Ryan can’t stomach Trump’s remarks in the videos, and he probably can’t even stomach the allegations that come with those said remarks. Trump has since attacked Ryan with a new Twitter offensive against the congressman.

Celebrities like Emmy Rossum and Rosie O’Donnell became outraged by what Donald said. And they kept tweeting, becoming angry by what they had seen and heard from a man who thinks grabbing a “woman’s pussy” is A-okay.

Here’s Emmy’s tweet on the subject:

MY THOUGHTS ON THE TRUMP VIDEOS AND ALLEGATIONS MATTER

Here’s the reality that everyone seems to be forgetting. I condemn what former President Bill Clinton did to Paula Jones, Kathleen Willey,  and Juanita Broaddrick. The fact that he had a much-publicized dalliance with a White House intern made me nauseas for days and months on end in the mid-to-late 1990s; however, it was consensual, despite the fact that it was shameful of him to cheat on Hillary at the time. But rulers in positions of powers have done that for centuries. Has anyone heard the sexual activities of England’s King Henry VIII? Did anyone know that Ann Boleyn was raped while still married to the King at the time?

At the same time I condemn what Trump has said on these videos and also condemn him for making these statements. After all, Bill Clinton and Donald Trump are morally-bankrupt, ethically-bankrupt, and anti-freedom reprehensible reprobates, and Hillary is a war machine-producing, pro-military (yet anti-troop), anti-freedom reprobate as well. They all are vicious liars – pathetic to the core, corrupt in mind, body, and soul, and evil to the bone. The Trump supporters are trying to make excuses for Trump’s putrid and repugnant behavior. That doesn’t sit well with most of the electorate, and I think that matters in the grand scheme of things.

Trump supporters say that this was “locker room talk” and that women do the same thing when they talk to other women in private, even if the conversation’s on hot mike. Personally I don’t know a single woman who has told her girl friends their version of a so-called locker room talk the following: “See that guy Tim Tebow over there? I would love to have his hot and juicy hard cock bouncing around in the back of my throat while I’m gagging off of him. I mean, who wouldn’t dream of his Ball Park hot dog squirting mozarella cheese into the back of my throat? Man, if he squirted his chewy semen into my mouth, I would swish it around like it was Crest mouthwash.”

But that’s just it. A woman would have far more dignity than that to say that about a guy whom she just saw, and a guy would have far more dignity than to say that about a woman whom he just met. No guy and girl would ever say that about anyone. I don’t know anyone who would say shit like that. Some guys and girls might joke around a bit, but they know their real limits. The questions that no one is asking are these: would anyone say these things in private, let alone in public, whether you’re on a hot microphone or not? If you were a woman, would you say them? I don’t think so. If you were a guy, would you do the same about a woman? I don’t think so either. I don’t in public and private. I’m better than that, and people should be, especially about people whom they don’t know from Adam.

Sheldon Richman, writing in his Free Association blog, pens the following:

sheldon-richman-condemning-sexual-assault-is-too-easy-the-piece-by-itself-10-14-2016

He’s right and wrong. He’s right in saying that Obama’s murders and havoc at home and abroad are the real issues, and not the sexual assault matter. But sexual assaults do matter. They matter more than anyone else will ever know.

And it’s time – high time – that we address this concern for what it is. It is a problem here in the U.S.

What I find objectionable from the left and the celebrities talking about Trump is that, while they condemn what Trump has done and it does need to be condemned, they don’t condemn what ISIS and other Arab leaders and Arab men in their native homelands do to women, as far as raping and sexually assaulting them. Rape culture is predominant there, not here. The Patriarchy exists there, not here.

Can’t we all just be honest for a change? Please? Is that too much to ask?

Real Time with Bill Maher Host Bill Maher Continues His Attacks on Gary Johnson – 10-07-2016

real-time-with-bill-maher-bill-maher-mark-cuban-james-carville-pitball-and-johann-hari

It’s becoming tiresome that HBO‘s Real Time with Bill Maher host Bill Maher has launched his attack antics on Gary Johnson again. Furthermore,  the liberal statist comic’s attempts to up his attack patterns against Johnson is both repugnant and disgusting to say the least. On Friday, October 7, he launched into a tirade against the audience *JUST* to say the following:

Bill Maher: So you know what? People [pause] don’t fuck around with this election. Don’t fuck around. I know Hillary [Clinton] isn’t a favorite to a lot of you. [Another pause] Please don’t vote for Gary Johnson or do some stupid shit like that [audience members laughing and clapping as soon as he finishes that sentence]. Gary Johnson [audience continues to clap] who [audience still clapping] as we know [clapping begins to subside] couldn’t name Aleppo, the city at the heart of the Syrian war that’s been going for five years. Couldn’t name any foreign leader. This week he was asked to name the leader of North Korea. [[He] [s]aid, “I, I’m not gonna do it.” [Audience begins to laugh at that.] Gary Johnson, I think, should not be my president. He should be my weed dealer. [Audience laughs hysterically at Maher’s punch line.]

Really, Bill? Remember when you had Gary Johnson on your show, and you interviewed him? You were immensely nice and gracious to him (which I now believe was an act on your part just because you needed to fill in a slot for an interview guest, and Johnson met the prerequisites for that interview back on July 1st this year). But let’s look at it a bit further. You told him at the end of your interview:

Johnson: What I want to be careful on is I, I don’t drink. But I don’t begrudge anyone having a drink in the evening to take the edge off. I don’t begrudge anybody having pot to take the edge off, so….

Maher: Lots of presidents were completely plod. Nixon, when he was going through Watergate, was going, “Guh, guh, guh, guh” every night. We know that. [Chuckles and laughter from the audience and from Johnson]

Johnson: People being –

Maher: Right.

Johnson: – able to make their own choices, and in my particular case, and I’m just speaking for myself –

Maher: Right.

Johnson: Like I say, 24/7 job running –

Maher: I hope you really get into the debates, because that would be great.[Loud applause from the audience and smile from Johnson] Thank you, Gary Johnson.

Gary gave you a fantastic interview for your show, and you blatantly without mercy sandbagged the man! That’s the hallmark of a liberal statist Democratic prick with an uber-inflated and unflattering ego who is a hack interviewer, a hack TV talk show host on a dumb-ass liberal statist cable network, a washed-up actor, a shitty documentarian, and a disgustingly joke-of-a-stand-up comic. You are all over the map politically, considering you change your positions so often and as much as you change your pair of socks. You have no solidly-consistent set of principles to stand by, not to mention your convictions puts a target on your back by your fellow progressives who feel that you have indeed gone too far and have become solidly puerile, insensitive, bigoted, racist, and sexist when making your pathetically lewd and deranged jokes in your stand-up segment of the show, during the panel discussions on the show, and your massively intolerable “New Rules” segment of the show as well.

Of course, Minnesota U.S. Senator Al Franken, a lifelong liberal statist Democratic and a stand-up comic (who’s planning to return to his stand-up craft while still serving his time in office), attacked Johnson as well during his interview given by Maher on the same show:

Al Franken: Gary Johnson [speaking while Bill’s audience is cheering and clapping for him]!  [Bill Maher begins to laugh as Franken steamrolls over Johnson] Gar…Gary Johnson [audience’s clapping abruptly comes to an end] did not know [Maher laughs hysterically while Franken makes his catty and snotty remarks] the name of the president of Mexico –

Bill Maher: Right.

Franken: – when he was the governor of New Mexico. [Maher and his audience laughs at Franken’s comment.]

Maher: Right.

Franken: Yeah.

Maher: [Interrupting Franken] It’s like Jerry Brown, the governor of California, not knowing the city where people go to gamble. [Several audience members chuckle.] Las Vegas. Ok, I’m sorry.

Let’s not forget Democratic strategist James Carville on Maher’s panel *HAD* to take some potshots at Gary as well in this following clip:

Carville went out of his way to say that “it is a fact” that Gary “smokes a lot of dope.” Furthermore, he says, “It is a fact he don’t know jack shit.” He defended his comments on the show, saying, “Get a life. It’s a joke. Gary Johnson is a joke. He’s a big, huge joke.”

Oh, and finally, Maher couldn’t resist to slam Gary one more time with his newest segment titled “I Don’t Know For A Fact” on Gary, and this clip of that segment captures the cruel and diabolical spirit of the smear, which is crafted in the form of a shitty joke:

Bill Maher: I don’t know for a fact that Gary Johnson has “Gary Johnson” tattooed on his arm…. [panelists and audience are laughing!]…in case he can’t name himself! I just know it’s true. [Audience claps enthusiastically!] 

This is what we come to expect from a liberal statist clod and Hillary crony who attacks and continues to attack a candidate because that Libertarian contender is a threat to the major parties, including Maher’s very own Democratic Party.

Real Time with Bill Maher Host Bill Maher and Interview Guest Comic Sarah Silverman Attack Libertarian Presidential Candidate Gary Johnson By Calling Him ‘A Fucking Idiot’ – 09-30-2016

real-time-host-bill-maher-and-interview-guest-comic-sarah-silverman-call-libertarian-presidential-candidate-gary-johnson-a-fucking-idiot-photo-clip-09-30-2016

 

HBO‘s Real Time with Bill Maher host Bill Maher, while interviewing show guest and comic Sarah K. Silverman, went on a “whiny-liberal-prick-and-bitch-fest” over Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson because a poll directed at a demographic of 18 – 34 years old people was issued with results indicating Hillary Clinton was at 31%, Donald Trump at 26%, and Johnson….at 29%. That pissed off Bill Maher, who immediately with the help of Silverman called Johnson “a fucking idiot.” Of course Maher proceeded to state that Johnson was in Maher’s “basket of fucking idiots.”

Here’s the entire clip of the segment as follows:

This is what took place as the following in this transcript of the segment of the show:

Bill Maher: Now let me read the polls here on Clinton, 18 – 34 people. Clinton 31%, Trump 26, Gary Johnson….29%. Gary Johnson.

Sarah Silverman: Gary Johnson.

Maher: Gary Johnson….

Silverman: Listen.

Maher: ….is a fucking idiot. [Audience laughs and claps.]

Silverman[Talking out loud through the audience clapping] I thought he was a fucking idiot.

Maher: I like him. He’s a nice guy, but he’s another in my basket of fucking idiots.

Silverman: Listen, I…I voted, and I believe you did, in 2000 for Ralph Nader.

Maher: Yes.

Silverman: But this is not that kind of time.

Maher: [Talking over Silverman while she was making her above comment to him] But he wasn’t an idiot.

Silverman: No, he wasn’t an idiot.

Maher: [Syncing his comment with hers] Right, he wasn’t an idiot.

Silverman: But he wasn’t gonna win.

Maher: [Talking over her again] No, and it was a mistake.

Silverman: [Talking over Maher at the same time] We wanted to vote our conscience.

Maher: I admitted it.

Silverman: It was a mistake.

Maher: Ok, but Gary Johnson…can I show you a little….we put a little montage –

Silverman: [Getting excited] Mmmhmmm. [Chuckles a little]

Maher: –  of Gary Johnson together just to rem – and, and we all thought, thought he was a cool guy. You know, he smokes pot, he was [panelist Angela Rye snickers] for pot, but he does not make pot look good by the way.

Silverman: [Interrupting Bill as he says the “by the way” words] Pot doesn’t make you cool.

Maher: Right.

Silverman: Pot is cool.

Maher: Pot is cool, but –

Silverman: [interrupting Bill] It doesn’t make you cool.

Maher: But you know what’s also cool? Reading!

Silverman: [smiles and gives a slight laugh but also agrees with him]

Maher: Here’s a little bit of Gary Johnson for those thinking of voting for him.

Angela Rye: So weird.

Maher: Really? [Audience laughs cruelly] And….by the way, for the people, 29%, 18 – 34, who I assume were Bernie people, right? Ok, here’s some, uh…minimum wage…..Hillary’s with Bernie. Not Gary Johnson. He believes in no minimum wage. TPP [Trans Pacific Partnership trade deal]……he’s for that. Hillary and Bernie are against it. Citizens United…..all the money you want in politics! Gun control….[Johnson] wants none of that. Financial regulation, universal health care….he is for repealing ObamaCare. Free college….he’s against that. He’s for nothing you fucking people want!

Silverman: It’s not even like it’s any….no one’s misinforming them about him –

Maher: Right.

Silverman: – like they are….like with your friend. You know, it’s like people…..people of  [unintelligible, because Maher and two members of the panel are laughing] what, what….

Rye: You know, that’s true.

Silverman: What you were saying was exactly right. People vote because they’re totally misinformed, and that is a real thing. You know, there is something called Brexit that people voted for totally against their best –

Stephen Moore: Yaay Brexit! You against Brexit?

Rye: Are you serious? [looking at Steve]

Silverman: I, I, um…

Moore: [Talking over Silverman] Brexit is great, self-government-wise! What were you, why were you against Brexit?

Silverman: [interrupting Steve] What are you talking about? They promised…they had huge signs on the sides of buses that said, ” You know, $325 million goes to the EU [European Union] that could, could be going to our health care.

Moore: That’s….not true.

Silverman: They had *NO*  intention of sending it, no intention of Brexit voted through. Then people are Googling what Brexit is after they voted it in.

Peter Hamby: Gary Johnson -.

Maher: [Quickly interrupting Hamby] A pundit.

Hamby: A pundit!

Silverman: [Interrupting Maher] I’m passionate.

Maher: [Interrupting Silverman again] Yes!

Silverman: [Interrupting Maher once again] Oh, don’t show my neck. My neck goes crazy when I have passion.

Maher: You know, you know….

Moore: [Laughs]

Silverman: [Gives Maher a serious, dirty look]

Maher: You know what would help a lot. Exfoliating! [Then bursts in snickering laughter]

Silverman: [Smiles with her mouth open] Good! I think of you every day!

Maher: [Laughs hysterically]

Silverman: My dry brush….

Hamby: Gary Johnson is clearly unfit to be president. What exacerbates me about Gary Johnson not knowing these things – and the collective exacerbation about it – is that neither does Donald Trump.

Maher: Right.

[The audience applauses while Hamby and Maher say those things.]

Hamby: And the problem is that a year ago people should be giving Donald Trump pop quizzes: Name me five countries of NATO. What’s the difference between Hamas and Hezbollah? How does a bill become a law? [Everyone begins to speak at once] Doesn’t Donald Trump know this?

Maher: [interrupting Hamby] No, he doesn’t.

Hamby: I don’t think he does.

 

And so the entire segment ends there. But it’s not a surprise given the hostile nature of the panelists involved in the Gary Johnson – and some Donald Trump – bashing.

Because of this episode, I have cancelled my DVR subscription to Real Time. I am no longer watching the show because Maher and his weekly panel of guests galore are toxic. They are filled with hatred for liberty, hatred for liberty, and hatred for individualism and free markets. They sure do love their liberal statism. And that has become the top, cardinal hallmark of Real Time with Bill Maher.

The Aleppo incident was launched by Mike Barnicle on MNSBC‘s Morning Joe to attack Gary Johnson, disparage him, and to throw a gotcha question at him, considering he threw in the Aleppo question at Gary during his interview on the show just to catch him off-guard.

The question that Barnicle asked was the following:

What would you do if you were elected about Aleppo?

Johnson was puzzled by that question. He asked:

And what is Aleppo?

Barnicle was shocked at his answer. He asked the following interrogative to Gary:

You’re kidding?

Johnson said:

No.

Barnicle replies:

Aleppo is in Syria. It’s the, uh, the epicenter of the refugee crisis –

Johnson interrupts him:

Ok, got it.

Of course, it’s not like Johnson *REALLY* didn’t know what Aleppo was. He did acknowledge that he thought Barnicle was asking him about an acronym, although he admitted that it was no excuse, and he sincerely apologized for it. But Barnicle’s question was poorly worded and quite vague. Remember, we are dealing with a hack writer who resigned from The Boston Globe over two columns written three years apart from each other. One column contained some lines that resembled jokes that were pilfered from the late George Carlin‘s 1997 book Brain Droppings.

The following Wikipedia pic evidences that in great detail.

mike-barnicle-boston-globe-controversy-excerpt-wikipedia

 

 

 

 

Oh, as for the cancer-afflicted kids in the second column? The Globe was unable to find Barnicle’s sources and couldn’t publicly identify them, and yet Barnicle defended his column, saying that every word he wrote was true.

So we have a disgraced writer who is the co-host of a network morning TV show who plagarized from a deceased comic by stealing jokes and using them as his own without any attributions or references to Carlin and who deceived his readers and the Globe by writing a column that failed to identify the names of the kids’ parents, and only got this non-fact-checked story from a nurse whose own credibility can be measured by the digits of her hands.

And, of course, Mike Barnicle says, in a Daily Beast column, he “doesn’t blame Gary Johnson.”

As for Johnson’s “Aleppo moment ” on Hardball with Chris Matthews, he’s since apologized for that, but he did say he meant to tell Matthews that his favorite foreign leader was former Mexican president Vicente Fox. Matthews asked Gary, “Who is your favorite foreign leader?” My response to that is: What the hell of a kind of question is that? Asking a Libertarian presidential candidate who his favorite foreign leader is is like asking a vegan what his favorite meat entree is. No libertarian – not even a credible Libertarian – would willfully answer that question because he or she doesn’t have a favorite foreign leader. Johnson did reveal that Fox was his favorite, but my only criticism of him is that he should have said, “I don’t have a favorite foreign leader, because it’s a silly question, and I don’t idolize or even admire any of them, past or current.”

Oh, but we have to ignore Johnson’s great responses about our foreign policy of interventionism (which he argues should be one of non-interventionism), calling for the end of the Drug War, calling for the strong reformation of our judicial system, and restoring our free market. Oh, and yeah, he even had great answers regarding Syria, our crushing of foreign regimes and our giving those countries weapons which land in the hands of ISIS, and a free market would end climate change. How about that for a change?

Yes, Gary drew a blank on that question and the Aleppo question, but so what? Did Trump not have more embarrassing gaffes? Did Clinton not come up with the mediocre responses to those questions?

Yes, Bill Maher. Gary Johnson. He’s not “a fucking idiot.” It’s funny that you knock him down after you had him on your show for an interview, and you were even condescending to him then. It doesn’t mean anything to you that you cherry pick “facts” and present them to your audiences *AS IF* they are true, and you and I and everyone know they aren’t. You’re the one who doesn’t have his facts; I do. As a Johnson supporter, I know this, and yet you don’t.

If anything, Bill, you *ARE* a fucking idiot, and you’re another in my basket of fucking idiots.

 

Real Time with Bill Maher Host Bill Maher’s Interview with Limousine Liberal Democrat (and Hollywood Actress) America Ferrera

America Ferrera on Real Time with Bill Maher Full Screenshot - Pic - 07-22-2016
HBO‘s Real Time with Bill Maher host Bill Maher interviewed ubiquitous limousine liberal Democrat, Hillary Clinton supporter, and Hollywood actress America Ferrera on his Friday, July 22, 2016 show (Episode 398) and discussed why she’s behind Clinton all the way, which led to a panel discussion that became superficially heated. She comes off as very insulting, very condescending, and very obtuse during the interview, although she initially had me on the immigration issue considering she correctly addressed the lies that Republicans have been spilling on so-called “illegal immigrants.”* [*Note: I prefer to call them “independent migrants” thanks to my old left-libertarian mentor Sheldon Richman who understands the issue better than *ANY* Republican known on record.]

The panel line-up included MTV News and New York Times progressive author and blogger Ana Marie Cox, progressive “Superpower: Three Choices for America’s Role in the World” author and Eurasia Group President Ian Bremmer,  and Trump supporter and former U.S. Representative Jack Kingston (R-GA) (who was incidentally receiving more flak from Ferrera, Maher, and Cox during the last segment of the show).

Here’s the YouTube of the interview portion of the show, broadcasted on July 22, 2016:

That’s pretty much the size of everything.
