Rape is a crime against women. When a woman is assaulted, the wounds may heal. However when rape occurs the women often never recover. PTSD, suicide, depression, and sexual dysfunction are just a few of the residual consequences. HIV and venereal disease transmission are also common. Over 32,000 women become pregnant in America every year as a result of rape. It is perhaps the crime feared by most women.
If Donald Trump, the misogynist running for President, were savvy, he’d never use the term “rape.” However because he seems to be unaccountable for his offenses toward women, he seems to flaunt his total disrespect for them.
Remember when his ex-wife Ivana Trump used “rape” to describe an incident between them in 1989. She later said she felt “violated” by the experience. The report was that after a painful scalp reduction surgery to remove a bald spot, Donald Trump confronted his then-wife, who had previously used the same plastic surgeon.
What followed was a “violent assault,” according to Lost Tycoon. Donald held back Ivana’s arms and began to pull out fistfuls of hair from her scalp, as if to mirror the pain he felt from his own operation. He tore off her clothes and unzipped his pants.
“Then he jams his penis inside her for the first time in more than sixteen months. Ivana is terrified… It is a violent assault.” “According to versions she repeats to some of her closest confidantes, ‘he raped me.’”
Remember when he was accused by Katie Johnson, and sued in federal court, of committing a “litany of sex acts.” That incident allegedly occurred when Trump and Jeffrey Epstein had a sex party with Katie, a 13 year old child and another minor. Epstein pleaded guilty to a 2008 unrelated charge to one count of soliciting prostitution and another of procuring a person under 18 for prostitution. Mr. Epstein served 13 months in jail and has settled numerous other civil lawsuits out of court. He’s registered as a sex offender for life. Johnson’s lawsuit described a litany of sex acts, including allegations that she “was forced to manually stimulate Defendant Trump with the use of her hand upon Defendant Trump’s erect penis until he reached sexual orgasm,” and that she was later “forced to engage in an unnatural lesbian sex act with her fellow minor and sex slave, Maria Doe, age 12, for the sexual enjoyment of Defendant Trump.” The suit also claimed that Trump completed the encounter by zipping up his pants, pushing both girls away, and “angrily berating them for the ‘poor’ quality of their sexual performance.”
Mike Tyson is a convicted rapist. He was convicted of raping Desiree Washington, an 18 year old contestant in the Miss Black America pageant. During the 13-day trial, Tyson offered an unusual defense – that he was a crude womanizer whose accuser must have known he wanted sex. He testified that he was blunt about his desires from the outset, and they had sex with her consent.
The cornerstone of that strategy was Tyson’s coarse demand, “I want to f–k you,” made to his accuser just moments after their first encounter. Among the 50 witnesses called were 16 contestants in the Miss Black America pageant. The 10 defense witnesses testified about Tyson’s groping and bawdy comments during a pageant dance rehearsal.
Trump blamed the victim, saying “You have a young woman that was in his hotel room late in the evening at her own will,” Trump said in an NBC Nightly News video package obtained by BuzzFeed News through the Vanderbilt University Television News Archive. “You have a young woman seen dancing for the beauty contest—dancing with a big smile on her face, looked happy as can be.”
“It’s my opinion that to a large extent, Mike Tyson was railroaded in this case.”
Thus it appears that Trump and Tyson share similar attitudes about women. Maybe it was Tyson’s attitude toward women that helped Donald Trump identify Mike Tyson as an appropriate person to appear at the Republican convention in Cleveland next month to speak for him. What a great way to Make America Great Again!
as the boxer’s “business adviser.” Trump came to the boxer’s aid when he was convicted of rape in 1992. In an effort to help Tyson avoid jail, Trump pitched a highly controversial proposal that would have essentially allowed Tyson to buy his way out of prison. Trump was planning to reap a windfall at the time as a result of a fight scheduled for Tyson and another fighter, Evander Holyfield. That fight had to be postponed until Tyson got out of jail. Three years later Tyson was released from jail. Tyson returned to boxing and eventually fighting Holyfield in 1996. It was the most lucrative boxing match ever (until the 2007 Mayweather-De La Hoya fight), but it was not hosted at a Trump casino. Even so, Trump found a way to come out on top,telling reporters that he had placed a $1 million dollar bet on Holyfield, even though the odds against him were 20-1. Tyson lost, and the payout, Trump claimed, was $20 million. “I’m friends with both Evander and Mike,” Trump said at the time. “I made the million-dollar bet even though I thought Holyfield would actually lose. “You just don’t put 20-1 odds against a champion. I have to admit that I was surprised when Holyfield won. I bet the odds.”
Trump and Tyson are old friends who did business together in the late 1980s, when the real estate mogul promoted and hosted several of Tyson’s fights at his Atlantic City casinos and even fashioned himself for a time
USA Today is reporting on Trump’s use of the word “rape” as a metaphor.
Trump demonstrated his insensitivity to the tragedy of rape by saying, “The Trans-Pacific Partnership is another disaster done and pushed by special interests who want to rape our country.” “Trump needs to learn that rape is never an appropriate metaphor.”
Voters in America should learn that Donald Trump should never be considered an appropriate candidate for President of the United States, regardless of political party or persuasion. It is not surprising that commencement addresses across the country singled out Donald Trump as a threat to the American way of life.
Matt Damon incorporated reference to both rape and Donald Trump in his speech.
Michelle Obama explained: “Some people think diversity is a threat to be contained, rather than a resource to be tapped.”
