The Republican Party should be embarrassed that they picked Trump as their nominee, but they are apparently actually proud that their candidate is a sexual predator.
Former Trump employee Jill Harth has come forward to detail the unwanted sexual advances Donald Trump made toward her during the 1990s.
While she was with her boyfriend George Houraney, Trump noticed her and began pursuing her aggressively to the point where it took a toll on Harth’s business and personal life.
Houraney and Harth were in the middle of trying to bring Trump in as a partner for their beauty pageant, but Trump didn’t care as much about business as he cared about trying to sleep with Harth.
In a 1996 deposition, Harth detailed the first business meeting between the three.
Donald Trump stared at me throughout that meeting. He stared at me even while George was giving his presentation… In the middle of it he says to George, “Are you sleeping with her?” Meaning me. And George looked a little shocked and he said, “Well, yeah.” And he goes, “Well, for the weekend or what?”
That sounds exactly like how Trump would act. But there’s much more.
Harth’s lawsuit describes a dinner at the Plaza Hotel where Trump introduced her as his “new girlfriend” and had the gall to brazenly tell Houraney how attracted he was to Harth.
“You know, there’s going to be a problem,” Trump said. “I’m very attracted to your girlfriend.”
Trump repeatedly called Harth to proposition her and invited her to his home under the guise of talking business. He eventually lured her to his Mar-A-Lago estate and attempted to rape her while Houraney was in another room.
Harth told the Guardian,
He tried to make his move. He pushed me up against the wall and had his hands all over me and tried to get up my dress again. And I had to physically say, ‘What are you doing? Stop it.’ It was a shocking thing to have him do this, because he knew that I was with George. He knew they were in the next room.
If it’s not consensual and somebody pushes you up against a wall and is all over you? If I hadn’t pushed him away, I’m sure he would’ve just went for it. He was aggressive. And he has a sense of entitlement. And he thinks everybody’s in love with him — every woman. I’ve heard him say things like this.
The harassment only continued after that, so Harth slapped Trump with a lawsuit in 1997.
Despite saying that he “never settles” lawsuits, Harth dropped her lawsuit against Trump after he and Houraney settled a business dispute for an undisclosed amount of money.
She remained quiet about the sexual assault and harassment until Donald Trump opened his mouth and started trashing Harth during his campaign to counter the stories dug up by the New York Times.

“He didn’t have to say anything,” Harth pointed out. “For once, he should have closed his mouth. He didn’t have to comment. We were on great—not great, I’ll take that back—we were on good terms, friendly terms. He didn’t—he started this. What is happening now is of his own making, OK? I was quiet.”
Indeed, and the media has largely stayed quiet about this as well, apparently too cowardly to speak up and challenge Trump. Meanwhile, the media has done it’s damnedest to scalp Hillary Clinton for every little thing in hatchet-job after hatchet-job report.
Somehow, emails are more important than rape allegations.
It also makes Trump a hypocrite because he has repeatedly called former President Bill Clinton a rapist.
Basically, not only has the Republican Party chose a bigoted asshole as their nominee, they have chosen someone who solidifies their standing as the party of rape.
