Worth reading again: The lawyer’s letter from the NY Times responding to Trump’s threat to sue
It’s worth another look. The background is in this NY Times article by Alan Rappeport.
I think the letter is well stated. What’s strange to me: When women whose encounters with Donald Trump exactly match how he stated he treats women (saying he can get away with it because he’s a “star’), some people immediately say the women are lying, that they must have been paid to say it, that if it did happen they are sluts. It doesn’t even occur to them (apparently) that the women’s reports are totally consistent with what Donald Trump said that he does. They also wonder why the women did not speak up immediately, apparently not connecting a reluctance to speak up with what happens if they do: accused of lying, accused of being paid to make false claims, accused of being sluts. No wonder women are reluctant to speak up.
