Should President Trump be investigated for sexual assault?
According to the New York Times, at least 30 high-profile men have been accused of sexual misconduct in the weeks since the Harvey Weinstein story broke, and for the first time, accusers are being believed. While many are happy to see progress being made on this front, some wonder why President Trump, who has been accused of harassment or assault by 19 women, has yet to be investigated.
Some have argued that there would be no #MeToo moment if Donald Trump had not been elected, even after being accused of various forms of misconduct, from groping to rape. But in recent weeks several of Trump’s accusers have said that while they’re happy sexual harassment is being discussed more openly, they’re still dismayed that their own stories seem to have had little impact.
And after reports came out claiming attorney Lisa Bloom sought compensation for some of the Trump accusers, many felt this proved his accusers weren't telling the truth.
Twitter & Facebook are keeping the report about Lisa Bloom offering to pay $750,000 to women "who made or considered making sexual misconduct allegations against Donald Trump during the final months of the 2016 presidential race," off the trending now sections.#LisaBloom#MeToopic.twitter.com/YBEHzuWzRc
Lisa Bloom was caught trying to pay women off with as much as $750,000 in exchange for accusing Trump of sexual assault. She also had an accuser's mortgage paid off in exchange for accusing @realDonaldTrump. Lisa Bloom + her mom Gloria Allred are frauds. https://t.co/FCdn8Xf9tP
