A jury in Manhattan found that former President Donald Trump did not rape former columnist E. Jean Carroll (in a dressing room in the 1990s), but nonetheless did determine that Trump was guilty of defamation when he called her allegations of rape a “con job.” Got it?
The jury also found the former president liable for sexually abusing Carroll and awarded her $5 million in damages for her claims against Trump. This caused the erstwhile Commander-in-Chief to issue a two-sentence statement on his TruthSocial account, which read: "I HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA WHO THIS WOMAN IS. THIS VERDICT IS A DISGRACE - A CONTINUATION OF THE GREATEST WITCH HUNT OF ALL TIME!"
So the jury found Trump not guilty of the rape charges, but guilty of defamation for calling her allegations of the rape that he was not guilty of a “con job?” Makes perfect nonsense.
$5 million? I wish someone would defame me. I could use the money! I will even agree to level rape charges against someone-- if needed-- to start the ball rolling.
