LIVE VIDEO: Trump Accusers Hold Press Conference

CBS News reports:

Several women who have publicly accused President Trump of sexual misconduct are speaking out together at a joint news conference on Monday in New York City.

According to a press release, the women will be speaking together for the first time about their experiences with Mr. Trump on Monday which is being held by the organization Brave New Films, a non-profit that creates media and film campaigns surrounding social justice issues.

The women are set to call for “accountability and an investigation by Congress of sexual misconduct by the president.” Mr. Trump had previously vowed to take legal action against the numerous women who have already leveled accusations of misconduct against him during the 2016 campaign.

    Brave brave women.

    Fighting the good fight against evil.

  • TJay229

    Why didn’t they have a press conference BEFORE the debate(s)?

    • hdtex

      They did.

    • another_steve

      These women and the others should have been on the stage at every one of Hillary’s campaign rallies, telling their stories. They should have been on cable news 24/7, telling their stories. The Clinton campaign, however, assumed (like almost everyone else did, including me) that Hillary had it in the bag, so why go there.

      It was a terrible campaign miscalculation. One that might have contributed to Clinton’s defeat.

      • Jonathan Smith

        a) right
        b)how the hell do you keep poinsettias alive?!?!?

        • another_steve

          b) Almost impossible. If you google you’ll learn what you can do (in theory) to keep them alive for a long time.

          Life’s too short for that shit, however.

          • Jonathan Smith
          • Frommer_Gast

            You might share your bedroom with them, if it is not heated.
            Reminds me of my (rather harsh) landlady when I was a student – I bought her a poinsettia for Christmas, whereupon she held me sermon that she has no place for it, with plants growingall over her place; in the end she concluded:
            “I´ll have it in my bedroom.
            NOTHING is growing there. (Da wächst NICHTS!)”
            Has become quite a catchphrase in our family …

        • Treant

          b) It’s very easy. Water when dry down at least the first inch, but don’t let go totally dry. When you water, soak it thoroughly and let the water run through a bit to clean out the salts (good advice for any plant).

          Place in good light, but not in all day direct sunlight. Near an eastern or western window is perfect. Close to a southern window is great, but not on the windowsill.

          That’s it, really. They won’t require food, and should bloom well into spring.

        • stuckinthewoods

          b) I didn’t know it was possible to kill them. You can find culture articles online but I think an unsaid problem can be that plants grown for seasonal interest aren’t often planted in media meant to sustain them for long periods, “soilless”. Also I found they want high light (but present growth may not deal well with that) since they’re a euphorb from Mexico. Some dwarfed the house across from my mother’s house in Florida.

          • Danieruw

            I’ve seen them as yard ornamentals in Mauritius.

      • Reality.Bites

        Trump supporters don’t care. Time to stop pretending they do.

        • Jonathan Smith

          oh, they care.
          “I’m white. don’t let those darker people have any say!”

        • FAEN

          YES! Just what I was going to say. Assaulting women is a feature for these people.

        • penpal

          You’re absolutely correct that Trump supporters couldn’t care less. However, I think the purpose of keeping Trump’s countless reasons for impeachment in the public eye shouldn’t be to seek actual justice because that won’t happen. The goal of Democrats should be to keep the public outraged and aware that Republicans support demagoguery at all costs, including the cost of molested little girls. Justice will probably never be served for the vermin serving in our administration, but we can at least make enough people to take their anger to the polls in the next election. IMO, that’s the best outcome we can achieve at this point. I don’t have much faith in Democrats that they can even do this and sustain it into 2018 and 2020, but hopefully I’m wrong and they will.

          • Strepsi

            YES Dems should take a page from Trump’s very successful playbook (Mein Kampf) and REPEAT REPEAT REPEAT the allegations every day.

          • FAEN

            It remains to be seen if the Dems can take back the House or Senate in 2018 but if the rage keeps burning-and why shouldn’t it-there should be a wave.

          • Reality.Bites

            My understanding of the Senate races that are up make the prospect of retaking it surprisingly hard.

            As we’re seeing, putting up Roy Moore won’t even turn a red state blue.

          • FAEN

            But it IS Alabama-it’s never turning blue.

          Many evangelicals (39%, I believe) said that they were MORE likely to vote for Moore after the accusations.

      • penpal

        Don’t dare suggest that the Clinton campaign failed to do anything correct in the election or you’ll risk getting attacked on this site. Stick to Russia, sexism, Bernie-bots, and media and you’ll be fine.

      • Strepsi

        I do not agree with you at all, they probably calculated that in bringing forth victims of sexual harassment it would be instantaneous – and easy – to hang Bill Clinton around Hillary’s neck, and the hypocrisy would be on her.

        I am not excusing anyone for not voting for Hillary, but IMO these women in that election would not have helped her.

        • Joe in PA

          Sadly, I suspect you are right…and we’ll get the same response today. But, but Bill Clinton….

        • But it’s unfair to blame Hillary Clinton for the misdeeds of her husband. If anything it is testament to her fidelity that she forgave him and stuck by him.

      • MonochromeMouse

        Hillary did have it in the bag, she won, the only reason it’s trump’s fat ass in the white house is because of Russian interference.

      • June Gordon

        Trump supporters were wearing “Just Grab Em in the Pussy” t-shirts in Pensacola last week. They don’t care.

        • another_steve

          I can’t help but think that if those 16 women were a focal point of the campaign last fall, many more women – Independents and Republicans included – would not have voted for the sexual predator who’s on tape admitting to his predatory behavior. Whether that would have made a difference and given Clinton the win is anyone’s guess.

          Republican Alabamian women aren’t representative of American women in general. Most other women in the nation have brains and hearts.

  • Tawreos

    I wish this would make a difference. When he said he could shoot people in the middle of Fifth Ave and not lose votes and didn’t lose votes for saying it, that was when facts about him ceased to matter to voters.

    • bkmn

      It is one thing for his supporters to adopt that stand. I, for one, still believe he assaulted them and should pay a price, so I support them in going public.

      • Tawreos

        I don’t think they should stop either, it just won’t matter to the people that still support Trump, or to the people that will deny him in public, but vote for him when the time comes.

    • Daveed_WOW

      To be fair, that scenario is typical of virtually any Republican.

  • bkmn
    • Tawreos

      Trump supporters gave up on the wall of text 3 words in.

    • ColdCountry

      It bothers me that a lot of us characterize Dump’s base as all being ignorant. Some of them clearly are, but some are definitely not. It baffles me, but some of his supporters are intelligent people, the same as some Klansmen are intelligent people. They’re just evil, I guess; I have no other explanation.

      • Jean-Marc in Canada

        Things that make you go hmmmmm

  • Ninja0980

    I’m sure folks will bring up Bill Clinton soon enough.
    If his accusers go on the air outside of Faux, I hope someone asks them why they have stood by a man who has been accused of the same thing they alleged Bill did to them and why they stood by as he attacked his accusers the same way they claimed Hillary did, especially after the Access Hollywood tape came out.
    Juanita Broderick in particular is more then happy to go after Democrats (Al Fraken) and people who question their accusers but has said nothing about Roy Moore and has gladly gone on the show of right wing folks who are attacking Moore’s accusers every way they can, with her once again not saying anything.
    And that’ll happen here as well.
    The folks the media insists we believe will justify Trump’s attacks on these women while bashing the Clintons and Democrats.
    And then they will whine about how folks don’t believe them.
    IMO, they have no one but themselves to blame for that.

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    She used “standards” and “president” in the same sentence…I’m sorry, but I laughed.

  • boatboy_srq

    Do we call this event “P*ssy Grabs Back”?

    S3xual impropriety in the WH. You would think the GOP, having impeached a POTUS for less, would be all over this – oh, right, that was a Dem; nothing to see here, move along….

    O/T but this is the take I’ve seen on the denial earlier by SCOTUS by many of the LGBT legal folks out there.

  • HaHaHa

    Does anyone else find this really uncomfortable?

    I guess PBS will lose it’s government funding soon.

    • Tawreos

      The reason given will be that they have to make up for a trillion+ tax break for billionaires somewhere.

  • Tawreos

    I wonder how many Trump supporters, if they pay attention at all, will say that Trump has more taste than to assault these women?

    • Joe in PA

      If anything they’ll just point to Bill Clinton and say “see, nothing was done”.

      • Jonathan Smith

        cough…..cough………

      you are guaranteed a jury pool of “your peers”
      NOT dRumph supporters.

      • Tawreos

        I hope the judge throws that argument right the hell out. Their argument basically boils down to “we have an argument that only idiots will buy so we want to pack the jury with all of the idiots we can get.

        • m_lp_ql_m

          Well, technically, their peers would be idiots.

    • Clive Johnson

      Translation: “We demand people just as bigoted and ignorant as ourselves, people with poor educations and a childlike worldview replete with misinformation, which we mistake for a clever contrarianism that owns the libs.”

      oh, garbage thrown in the day before the election.
      screw the grain of salt, give me a mountain.

    • m_lp_ql_m

      This is only going to make more people vote for him.

      • Cipher

        Unless the mother was 14 or younger at the time of birth, he’s totally gaining votes with this.

    • Reality.Bites

      Marrying a second cousin is perfectly legal in all 50 states and every country in the world.

      It would not sway a single vote.

      • JCF

        Obviously, not by itself. But fathering a child out-of-wedlock (kept hidden all these years of his public career) WOULD go to the larger argument of sexual misconduct. [The 2nd cousin factor wouldn’t be huge, but might affect some further small % in addition.]

  • Tomcat

    One question, why is there a advertisement for a casino in the title bar below the picture. Are casinos now bringing us the news?

    • Jonathan Smith

      faux news?
      32:1 to be right?

  • BartmanLA

    Apparently and shockingly, Fox News did a poll putting Doug Jones with a 10 point lead over Moore. If that’s the case I’m not dreading the results tomorrow as much as I was before the weekend. That plus President Obama has come out to endorse Jones with a video and I believe a robocall campaign too. Fingers crossed!!!

    • Cipher

      Sorry but I think that’s just Fox trying to fire up the GOP base in Alabama to go vote so that racism-hating, abortion-loving Democrat won’t get elected.

      • Reality.Bites

        They contract with reputable polling terms and are rated a B by 538.com.

        We got 36% of the vote last time. Really, anything 40% and higher will be a damn good showing.

        Anything 45% and up will scare the shit out of Republicans.

        • Cipher

          I would love to see a great showing. As for the polls, I fear the good “Christians” of Alabama hesitate to say aloud to a stranger over the phone what they intend to do when “god is watching” them inside the polling place.

  • this won’t be popular, but i’m a Survivor and feel some right to say this: accusing women, particularly in this case, where were you when it could’ve made a difference?

    unless these women are all women who merely walked down the street and he randomly assaulted her, my pity meter is low. we’re in the midst of an unprecedented national crisis and any one of these women could’ve gotten the ball rolling to destroy his campaign before the russikies got a chance to interfere. i cut a lot of slack for victims who are very young or have no power to get away from their abusers. but less for women who of all people in this universe should’ve known and done something to stop a monster from taking over this country and destroying it. but whose chose not to until now, when it’s a ‘thing’ in our media.

    • I’m not 100% certain on this, but didn’t most of these accusations come out during the campaign, they were just suppressed/ignored? Your point still stands, nonetheless.

      • Guess?

        Yes but media was too busy screaming but what about her emails to give it much air time.

    • Ann Kah

      It was spoken about much earlier, then T threatened to sue them all, and we had a scandal a day to overshadow that one. But I’m older; I went through all this conversation more than half a century ago, then again at the Anita Hill/Clarence Thomas whoop-ti-doo, and I am annoyed myself by the women (in congress, no less) who say that NOW women can speak out. We always could, especially adult women who are not subordinates of the abuser. Where was their voice before? Their silence allowed this kind of thing to continue.
