Trump Campaign Denies Guardian Report the President Assaulted a Woman in 1997

U.S. President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign on Thursday denied a Guardian newspaper report in which a former model accused the New York real estate developer of sexually assaulting and groping her at the U.S. Open tennis tournament in 1997.

The Guardian reported that Amy Dorris told the paper in an exclusive interview that Trump assaulted her outside a bathroom in his VIP box at the tournament that year. She was 24 at the time, the newspaper said.

“He just shoved his tongue down my throat and I was pushing him off. And then that’s when his grip became tighter and his hands were very gropey and all over my butt, my breasts, my back, everything,” the newspaper quoted Dorris as saying.

The president’s re-election campaign on Thursday said the allegations were not true.

“The allegations are totally false. We will consider every legal means available to hold The Guardian accountable for its malicious publication of this unsubstantiated story,” said Jenna Ellis, a legal advisor to Trump’s campaign.

Efforts to reach Dorris by phone for comment were unsuccessful.

The Guardian said in an email it stood by its reporting.

The newspaper published photos that it said were provided by Dorris showing her with Trump and said that it interviewed several people who Dorris confided in at the time of the incident. It said that in total she provided six photos showing the two together as well as her ticket to the tournament on the day she said the incident occurred.

Trump has faced a number of allegations of sexual misconduct prior to his time in office. Shortly before the November 2016 election an “Access Hollywood” recording from 2005 revealed him boasting about groping women. Trump dismissed the comments as “locker room banter” and apologized.

    Deflecting won’t help Dear Leader.

    And pull your head out of the sand. It must be difficult to breathe down there like that. Communism is not an issue. Socialism is not an issue. They are only an issue for the few die-hard remaining McCarthyites, such as you, Confused Boob The Projectionist, banstan, Confused James The Projectionist, and a few others out there. Time has moved on, fellas. Grow up.

  2. There are way more women that Beijing Biden inappropriately “handled” and “sniffed” over the 47 years he has been in office.
    Not much has been said about that recently, I wonder why?
    Oh, yeah now I remember…..the media is Democrat controlled and only publish their narrative of the “news”.
    Did you know one of the steps towards Communism through Socialism, is control what the people read and hear.
    Everyone should look up the 10 steps to Communism, and notice how the Democrats are working the list.

  3. The stained blue dress was evidence in Slick Willie’s problem.
    Funny how these charges appear after so long Could it possibly havr something to do with the election less than two months away, and Trump’s polling looking better? Aw, come on. Never!

  4. This is now, I believe, the 25th woman accusing King Donald The Loser of inappropriate sexual behavior, misconduct or even rape (with a stained blue dress to prove it).

    Where is the moral outrage from the right-wing or the Christian nationalists? Oh, right… how silly of me. Y’all are a farce.
