It was not that long ago that our President Elect, Donald Trump, seemed like he was in a whole lot of trouble because of a series of women coming out and saying that he had been inappropriate with them. In fact at one point, before Trump steamrolled Hillary Clinton on election day, it seemed like these allegations were going to cost him the election. This all started, well most of it anyway, when an old video of Trump surfaced where he was captured on video saying that he could do pretty much anything he wanted to women and they would let him do it, because you know, he is Donald Trump. This, of course, caused a major media frenzy where all sorts of women came out and said "The Donald" did all sorts of nasty things to them, and they did not like it one bit.
Now that Donald Trump has become President-elect Trump, most of this has died down. His supporters are totally pumped, and people who do not like him are way more worried about the world ending than they are about Donald chasing after a little tail.
But still, it isn't like these accusations just went away; they are still out there kicking around, even though it has been pretty much proven that the vast majority of the country could have cared less. We have to say, it is pretty entertaining, or some may say horrifying, when you get to read about our next president messing around with all sorts of ladies, whether they wanted him to or not. Here are 15 women who have accused Donald Trump of acting sexually inappropriately with them.
15 Ninni Laaksonen
Nikki is gorgeous and a former Miss Finland who was competing in the Miss Universe Pageant. She said that Trump got a little freaky with her when she and some other contestants were about to go on The Late Show With David Letterman. She said: “Trump stood right next to me and suddenly he squeezed my butt. He really grabbed my butt. I don’t think anybody saw it but I flinched and thought: ‘What is happening?’”
Well I tell you what was happening Nikki, Donald Trump was doing his thing and you happened to be in the neighborhood. She was told later at a party that Trump liked her because she looked like Melania when she was younger. Trump did not respond to the charges.
14 Jessica Drake
Jessica is an adult film star, and a so-called "sex educator." Nice work if you can get it, right? She held a press conference in which she alleged that Trump grabbed her and kissed her without her consent, then offered her $10,000 to have sex with him. She said she brought two other women up to his penthouse suite at a golf tournament because she “didn’t feel right going alone.” She said during the press conference that Trump “grabbed each of us tightly in a hug and kissed each one of us without asking for permission.” According to her he was wearing pajamas. I don't know about you, but that is the worst part of the whole thing. Trump denied these allegations and called them false and ridiculous. In fact, he says he doesn't even know her at all.
13 Karena Virginia
Karena is a yoga instructor and life coach from New York, who claims that Donald got a little nasty with her while she was leaving the US Open way back in 1998. She did not know him at the time. She was part of a press conference at which she said that she was waiting for a car to pick her up when Trump and a bunch of other men came up to her. Karena claims that he said, “Hey look at this one!” and “Look at those legs!” What a smooth talker he is, huh? She then says that Trump touched her breast and then asked “Don’t you know who I am?” She claims that she was shocked by the encounter, then dealt with a lot of shame afterwards, even changing the way that she dressed to look less attractive.
12 Cathy Heller
Next on the list is Cathy Heller. She says she was having brunch on Mother's Day at Trump’s estate in Palm Beach, Florida. She was with her husband, in-laws and children at the time. She told The Guardian, “He took my hand, and grabbed me, and went for the lips.” This freaked her out a bit and she claims she attempted to lean away from him but he wasn't having it. According to her, "he said, ‘Oh, come on,’ grabbed her and kissed the side of her mouth." According to the interview she said, “He kept me there for a little too long and then he just walked away.” Heller had been telling this story to people she knew for quite a long time, so even though it is not the biggest allegation against him, one would guess that it was true.
11 Summer Zervos
Summer appeared on season five of The Apprentice. She said in a press conference that Trump had acted in sexually inappropriate ways with her numerous times. According to her, the first time it went down he kissed her on the mouth in his office which apparently she just thought was a "strange greeting." Gee Summer, you think? Then another time she met with him at a Beverly Hills hotel to talk business. Apparently Trump's idea of business is a little different than hers, as he kissed her and touched her breasts, then later walked her into the bedroom and “began thrusting his genitals.” Come on Donald, everyone knows that genital thrusting went out in the '90s - so last year!
10 Kristin Anderson
Anderson was an aspiring model in the early '90s. According to her, she and some buddies were out at a Manhattan nightclub - because that is what aspiring models do - when she encountered Donald Trump. She says Trump reached into her skirt, and touched her private parts through her underwear and that she was "very grossed out." Well, yeah I imagine you would be. Trump says through a spokesman that he “denies this phony allegation by someone looking to get some free publicity. It is totally ridiculous." For what it is worth, Anderson had told people the story well before Trump ran for president. One thing is for sure, if these types of allegations are true, I am more worried about Trump's lack of game than anything else. Doesn't a president need better game than this?
9 Rachel Crooks
Crooks was a receptionist in Trump Tower, working for a company not owned by Trump. One day she wound up in an elevator with Trump and decided to introduce herself. Big mistake Rachel! You just opened yourself up to some major Stranger Danger! She told The New York Times that when she shook his hand, he wouldn't let go of it, then kissed her cheek, and then moved in and kissed her on the mouth. She said, “It was so inappropriate. I was so upset that he thought I was so insignificant that he could do that.” She was 22-years-old when it happened. While, if true, this sounds totally horrible, at least she avoided that whole genital thrusting thing. That sounds totally awful.
8 Jessica Leeds
This one really is from the way-back machine; in theory it happened over 30 years ago. According to Jessica she was on a plane next to Trump, talked to him for a bit, then he began to grab her breasts and put his hand up her skirt. This one seems a little off for sure, as doing this on a plane seems like it might possibly command a little bit of attention. According to her, “He was like an octopus. His hands were everywhere.” Now that I think of it, Donald "The Octopus" Trump does kind of have a cool ring to it. Trump strongly denied this account and even threatened to sue The New York Times over the story. Trump and The New York Times are not the best of friends.
7 Mindy McGillivray
According to Mindy, she was attending a concert at Trump's estate in Palm Beach when he grabbed her butt. She told the Palm Beach Post: "I think it’s Ken’s camera bag, that was my first instinct. I turn around and there’s Donald. This was a pretty good nudge. More of a grab. It was pretty close to the center of my butt. I was startled. I jumped.” Trump denies this and it has been reported that he is planning on suing the paper. With this kind of thing, it truly is hard to tell whether so many women are coming out because of the fact that Trump really is a totally lame dude who messes with women, or if so many women are coming out because Trump is really this totally lame dude a lot of women just don't like.
6 Natasha Stoynoff
Natasha wrote a piece in People Magazine in which she claims she was assaulted while she was interviewing Trump and his wife Melania while Trump was giving her a "tour of the grounds." That's what she said. Is that what they are calling it now? But I digress. Natasha claims: "Trump shut the door behind us. I turned around, and within seconds, he was pushing me against the wall, and forcing his tongue down my throat ... I was grateful when Trump’s longtime butler burst into the room a minute later, as I tried to unpin myself.” Trump handled this in a total Donald Trump way by saying "Look at her, I don't think so," thereby implying that Natasha was not hot enough to sexually assault.
5 Jennifer Murphy
Jennifer was a contestant on season 4 of The Apprentice and by all accounts is totally hot, so Donald can't do that whole "look at her, I don't think so" routine. Jennifer told Grazia that after a job interview with Trump, “He walked me to the elevator, and I said goodbye. When he pulled my face in and gave me a smooch. I was like ‘OK.' I didn’t know how to act.” Wait a minute, you didn't know how to act? I have been on numerous job interviews (although not as many as most people, as I am kind of lazy) and not once has anyone that was interviewing me kissed me after the interview. If they did I would be pretty sure I would know how to act, which would have something to do with how much I wanted the job...
4 Cassandra Searles
Cassandra was Miss Washington in 2013. According to Yahoo News she once posted a photo of herself and other contestants from Miss USA on Facebook and then said about Trump: “Do y’all remember that one time we had to do our onstage introductions, but this one guy treated us like cattle and made us do it again because we didn’t look him in the eyes? Do you also remember when he then proceeded to have us lined up so he could get a closer look at his property?” She then said in the comments of the post, “He probably doesn’t want me telling the story about that time he continually grabbed my ass and invited me to his hotel room.” Okay, so I have to say out of all of these, Cassandra seems to be the coolest. Punking out The Donald in a random Facebook post? Way to throw shade.
3 Temple Taggart McDowell
Temple was another Miss USA contestant. With looks like hers she almost had to be; she was Miss Utah in 1997. You have to wonder if they should change the name from Miss USA to "Miss Hey Could You Please Stop Touching My Butt." Temple told The New York Times when she was introduced to Trump: “He kissed me directly on the lips. I thought, ‘Oh my God, gross.’ He was married to Marla Maples at the time. I was like ‘Wow, that’s inappropriate.’” Trump has said that not only did that never happen, but that he does not even know her. This is the problem with this kind of thing of course; she says something happened 20 years ago, he says he has no idea who she is, it is pretty hard to prove if either one is telling the whole truth.
2 Jill Harth
Harth used to have a business relationship with Trump in the 1990s. To say that it ended badly would be a huge understatement. Harth filed a lawsuit in 1997 and said that Trump sexually harassed her and would grope her under the table. She dropped her suit, but still says that what she claimed was true. Trump has come back at her by saying that she was the one that pursued him, and not the other way around. This is an age-old tactic for causing confusion and delay when you are accused of doing something of this nature by women. Just do the old "What are you talking about I was hitting on her, she was hitting on me!" Works every time, as long as there is no evidence involved.
1 Ivana Trump
Okay wait, Ivana Trump? Yeah, even Ivana has called out Donald for being a bit creepy on occasion, although she has mellowed on her claims over the years. She said in a divorce deposition that while they were married Trump forced her to do the deed with him. Later down the road she mellowed and said she just felt violated as he wasn't as loving and tender as she usually was. One thing for sure about Trump is that where there is smoke, there is almost always fire. It seems pretty apparent to many that he did a lot of these things, and maybe many more. I guess the question is, does anyone really care, and does it make him a bad president? Of course there is another group that thinks that most of this was just made up by the liberal media. Those tend to be the same sort of folk that think Michelle Obama is a man.
