Tyler Durden – Zero Hedge June 25, 2019
Less than 48 hours after columnist (and soon to be book author) E. Jean Carroll accused (in a New York Magazine article) Donald Trump of raping her in a dressing room in high-end department store, Bergdorf Goodman, in the 1990’s, CNN had gleefully invited the accuser on to discuss the details of this horrific act from her past.
Things did not go according to plan for CNN… and we suspect for Ms. Carroll’s book sales.
While President Trump has vehemently denied the rape took place, a sensitive Anderson Cooper welcomed the woman on to his CNN show… then things went ‘full awkward’.
Cooper asked Carroll, “you don’t feel like a victim?” after she suggested that was the case, and things went downhill fast.
The seemingly unstable Carroll replied, “I was not flung to the floor.”
Cooper retorted, “I think most people think of rape as a violent assault...”
To which Carrol replied, stunning the CNN anchor, “I think most people think of rape as being sexy…”
Cooper stuttered, stumbled, and quickly cut the interview straight to a commercial break, but not before Carroll could add “…think of the fantasies.”
Perhaps next time, CNN will vet the mental health of their Trump-bashing guests a little better? Are we still supposed to believe every accuser or did Carroll just crush the credibility of the last two years of #MeToo-ism accusations in one 30-second breakdown?
