|Trump and O'reilly. Like two peens in a pod.|
All one has to do to qualify this statement is to look at his past body of work. During the 2016 presidential campaign more than a dozen women accused Trump of sexually assaulting them. In addition The Washington Post unearthed a video in which Trump claimed he could grab women “by the pussy” because he was "a celebrity."
That's why when he heard that Fox News megastar Bill O'reilly had been accused of sexual harassment by six different women, which is way less than the fifteen that had personally accused him of sexual harassment, he knew he had to speak on O'really's behalf.
It was during an interview with The New York Times that serial sexual assaulter Trump came to the defense of his dear friend O’Reilly.
After hearing that the the paper had reported that both O’Reilly and Fox News' parent company had paid around 13 million dollars “in exchange for agreeing to not pursue litigation or speak about their” allegations of sexual harassment which included “verbal abuse, lewd comments, unwanted advances and phone calls in which it sounded as if Mr. O’Reilly was masturbating” that Trump said of the beset O’Reilly...
“I think he’s a person I know well — he is a good person. I think he shouldn’t have settled; personally I think he shouldn’t have settled. Because you should have taken it all the way. I don’t think Bill did anything wrong.”
O’Reilly has so far stayed silent on the scandal, despite losing at least 40 advertisers for his primetime Fox News show “The O’Reilly Factor”.
If Trump’s comments sound familiar it is because they echo statements he made about another serial sexual assaulter from the Fox News family, Roger Ailes. In July 2016, amid Ailes' sexual harassment scandal at the network Trump claimed his accusers, who he claimed had received help from Ailes and then went on to say....
“...these horrible things about him. It’s very sad. Because he’s a very good person. I’ve always found him to be just a very, very good person. And by the way, a very, very talented person. Look what he’s done. So I feel very badly,”
Trump sure knows how to kick off "National Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month" doesn't he!
