Donald Trump still claims he doesn’t know E. Jean Carroll

On Wednesday evening, CNN welcomed 2024 presidential nominee Donald Trump to a New Hampshire town hall, which he predictably used as a platform to repeat a series of well-known lies. To the audible delight of his MAGA audience, he reiterated his unfounded complaint that the 2020 election had been “rigged.” He argued that he had “every right” to keep confidential government documents after leaving the White House and again denied ever meeting the woman just successfully sued him for sexual abuse and defamation. A Manhattan jury awarded the prize on Tuesday former ell Council columnist E. Jean Carroll $5 million, Trump faces liability for personal injury and for damaging Carroll’s reputation and career by branding her a liar. A little over 24 hours later, Trump doubled down on allegations similar to those that earned him a defamation lawsuit. vocation the case of fake news.

“This woman,” Trump said of E. Jean Carroll when moderator Kaitlan Collins asked for his response to the verdict. “I don’t know her, I’ve never met her, I have no idea who she is.”

That’s more or less the answer he’s given since Carroll first told her story new York. “Totally lying,” he said called shortly after the play’s release. “I don’t know anything about that woman.” But Carroll – who filed a civil lawsuit against Trump in 2019 — says he recognized her instantly when she met him at Bergdorf Goodman more than two decades ago. “He said, ‘Hey, you’re this counselor.’ I said, ‘Hey, you’re this real estate magnate,'” she said last week. Carroll recalled Trump asking her for help choosing a gift for a wife; She agreed, but when he followed her into a dressing room on the sixth floor of the department store, “he immediately closed the door and shoved me against the wall,” Carroll told the court. “For a minute I thought maybe it was a mistake,” she said, adding that he pushed her hard against a wall. “I pushed him back, and he threw me back against the wall and hit me with his head again,” Carroll testified, explaining that she didn’t scream during the attack – which she described as rape – because she “didn’t do it” “I wanted to make a scene” and “didn’t want to upset him.”

Ultimately, the jury sided with Carroll on all counts except the rape allegations, awarding her $5 million for assault and defamation. she has said she feels “fantastic” about the result.

Trump, on the other hand, he says plans to appeal, who also sticks to his flimsy excuses under oath. in one Testimony played in court Last week he accused Carroll of making up “the most ridiculous and disgusting story”. He confirmed that again she wasn’t his “type” a defense he has built countless times against not only Carroll but other women who have accused him of assault. (Jessica Leeds is one of them: She says Trump once groped her on a plane and testified about the experience during Carroll’s trial.) He recycled that, too too ugly to rape line on the cnn stage, Tell Collins: “Physically, she’s not my type, and now that I’ve heard things about her indirectly, she wouldn’t be my type in any way, shape, or form.” Not to mention, in his statement, Trump referenced Carroll couldn’t tell from his ex-wife in a photo.

Given all the overlap, Carroll now says she may file a third defamation lawsuit against Trump over Wednesday’s remarks (she already had another pending). “It’s just stupid, it’s just gross, vile, nasty, it hurts people,” she told the New York Just. Although she did not watch the show herself, her lawyer, Roberta Kaplan provided her with a transcript. Trump not only reiterated the positions that originally sued him, but also said the process had been “rigged.” And at the same time he seemed to suspect that Carroll had invented the attack and that she was somehow responsible for everything that had happened to her. “What kind of woman meets someone and brings them up and within minutes you’re playing handkerchief in the dressing room?” he said. In light of the new material, Kaplan said so Just“Of course everything is on the table and we have to think about it seriously. We’ll have to weigh the various pros and cons and will likely come to a decision in the next day or so.”

In front of City Hall, Trump announced a particularly chaotic appearance, apparently to arouse interest. “Could be the start of a new and vibrant CNN with no fake news, or it could be a total disaster for everyone – including me!” campaign tweeted on Wednesday morning. But secret service agent The crowd, noted, consisted of Republicans and independents who cheered Trump’s arguments and gave the event a “MAGA rally” note. While it was disconcerting to hear Trump flippantly deny the rape allegations against a backdrop of a laughing tune, there was nothing surprising about the way the evening unfolded. Trump card named Collins a “bad man” just like him called Carroll a “crazy job”. He talked about the hostess and dodged her questions, much like himself has crushed its moderators in presidential debates. What’s remarkable is that he knows all of this, knows exactly how he’s going to behave and knows exactly what he’s going to say. CNN still decides to give Trump a microphone.
