An article from The Hill that includes a photo of Trump and two of his accusers has been shared Tuesday more than 21,000 times, and the tally increases by the hour.
This is just one of the many articles published Tuesday by liberal media outlets that are now using “visual evidence” in an attempt to prove the president is guilty of sexual harassment, and that he is lying when denying he “doesn’t know” the women who are making nasty allegations about him.
Trump tweeted Tuesday: “Despite thousands of hours wasted and many millions of dollars spent, the Democrats have been unable to show any collusion with Russia — so now they are moving on to the false accusations and fabricated stories of women who I don’t know and/or have never met. FAKE NEWS!”
The Hill writes: “People magazine published a photo later in the day showing Trump standing alongside Natasha Stoynoff, a former foreign correspondent for the magazine, while at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in 2005. People said that the photo was taken the same day that Stoynoff, in 2016, accused Trump of forcibly kissing her.”
In other words, any and all women who have taken a photo at some point with Trump can now make a claim that he sexually harassed them. Furthermore, all said women can make these claims knowing the media will defend them at all costs by using their photos as evidence.
The Hill goes on to write: “Another photo surfaced following Trump’s tweet Tuesday showing him with another accuser, Jill Harth.
Harth, who did business with Trump and later dated him, last year accused him of groping her in the early 1990s. According to a New York Times column published last year, Harth filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against Trump in 1997, but withdrew it when settling a separate lawsuit with Trump.”
Wait! Am I reading this correctly? A woman who “dated Trump” accused him of groping her. How asinine is this going to get!
Assuming Trump both dated Harth and was engaged in a lawsuit with her, does any intelligent person in the media really believe he’s trying to claim he doesn’t know her?
The Hill continues: “Another high-profile Trump accuser, Summer Zervos, was a contestant on NBC’s “The Apprentice,” which Trump hosted. The woman, who accused Trump of groping her in 2007, is seen in video sitting across a boardroom table from Trump on the show.”
Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Tuesday afternoon that Trump’s tweet was referring specifically to the three women who held a press conference the previous day to highlight their accusations against Trump. One of the ladies is a person he met outside an elevator. Another woman was a contestant in his beauty pageant, and the third lady sat next to him on a flight. Making the brief acquaintance of these ladies doesn’t mean he “knows them.”
Allow me to defend the president with a few photos of my own.
The first photo shown below is with Nancy. We snapped the photo three years ago on 9/11.
I had never met Nancy before this photo was taken, but she knew of me from TV and because I had included the story of her deceased brother in my film, ‘They Come to America II.’
She recognized me while I was walking in a park. Immediately, she got out of the car and introduced herself. We shook hands, shared thoughts about her fireman brother who died on 9/11, and then we snapped the photo after she thanked me “for all I do.”
Look at the picture. We’re super close. Her hand is on my stomach. My hand engulfs her shoulder. We are cheek to cheek. You’d swear we’ve known each other for years.
As noted, I had never met Nancy prior to the day the photo was taken, and I have never seen her since. But lets assume I had no way of proving that. If Nancy was to suddenly accuse me of sexual misconduct, the media would be touting this photo as proof and I would appear like a liar if I claimed “I didn’t know her.” Meanwhile, truth is I know nothing about her — we met once and I truly don’t know her. And here’s the kicker…. my wife snapped the photo.
Another photo to be used for purposes of example is with Megyn Kelly.
Megyn and I got along super well when I’d appear on her Fox News program, “The Kelly File.” But in all the times the two of us were on camera together, we never took a selfie photo. Our relationship was purely professional, and so the only time I had seen her outside the Fox studio was long after I had stopped appearing on the network.
In 2015, I ran into Megyn at Penn Station in NYC. We were both headed to the same media event in DC — I was hosting a program on NewsmaxTV at the time. We snapped the selfie while waiting for the Amtrak.
If Megyn were to make an accusation that I groped her during the photo, what would my defense be?
I am bearing a dumb grin and our bodies are touching. And because I’m a guy, it would be near impossible for me to defend against the claim.
The reason why I am making the dumb grin and she’s smirking is because I asked, “How long until I take your job at 9pm?”
Fact is, her husband was standing two feet away from us when this photo was snapped, and I talked more with him on the train ride than I did to her.
Point being, photos do not tell the entire story. Perhaps the best example of this is the side by side photo below.
On the left is yours truly kissing a woman on the cheek. The photo was taken nearly 30 years ago. If she were to make a claim that we were sexually engaged on that evening, she would be 100% correct. Meanwhile, the photo to the right was taken about 10 years ago. Again, it’s of me kissing a woman on the cheek. If she were to make a claim against me, she’s be lying.
Both pictures show me kissing a woman. The big difference between the two photos is I married the woman on the left, and I have no idea of the name of the woman on the right.
The photo of me kissing Mary was taken on her 21st birthday. The photo on the right was taken during an event in Ohio where I was the keynote speaker. I kissed the lady’s cheek after her friend asked me to do so. “She’s your biggest fan, please give her a kiss — she’ll never forget it,” she yelled from across the room. The lady looked at me and smiled. How could I say no? I didn’t grope her, I gave her a friendly kiss. That said, just because we took a close photo together doesn’t mean I know who she is. By the way, my daughter took the picture.
It’s time to give Trump a break.
President Trump says his accusers are “women who I don’t know and/or have never met.” Here is a photo of him with Jill Harth. And he never denied knowing her, in court depositions or an interview with me. pic.twitter.com/JCn6xHgnBK
