    Perhaps you think that Trump is a serial abuser of women?
    Think??? Good Lord,we heard it in his own words!

    Yup. He's such a flagrant liar, it can be hard to believe his words.

    But when his words are backed up by over a dozen women -- when he was sued for pussy grabbing long before he ran for president -- yeah, I believe him when he bragged on multiple occasions about being a serial sexual assaulter.

    WAPO posted a list of Trump accusers after he backed Moore.

    You can attempt to deny the facts... but they are still the facts. The left has the MSM as their number one campaign tool and this time it backfired on the left hard. Add to that the despicable piece of crap he was running against.

    The inferred crimes of Trump are abstractions. Since he enjoys talking shit, his words are also mostly abstractions. I'll ask the question to you that has been ignored once already. Do you think that Trump is a serial sexual criminal? I am sure he is a crass narcissist, but the OP implies criminal behavior which I am not so sure is the case.

    [QUOTE=Ian Jeffrey;5602922]Um, what? [QUOTE]

    Two men being tried in the press are being compared. No press, no comparison. Have either of them been convicted of anything? If you added Bill Clinton to the comparison, you would least have one person who was both impeached and lost his law license and those were tried by the congress and the courts.

    Trial by media is exactly what the OP describes.
