Lawrence O’Donnell blasted Lindsey Graham, Donald Trump Jr., and the president over their defense of Trump Sr. amid the latest rape allegations from E. Jean Carroll.
Said Graham of Trump on Tuesday: “The president has denied it. That’s all I needed to hear.”
Said O’Donnell of Graham: “Like Donald Trump Jr before him, Lindsey Graham seems to have come to his public position of love of Donald Trump by working his way through his hatred and fear of Donald Trump.”
O’Donnell then moved on to Donald Jr.
Donald Trump Jr. also defended his father against the allegations, saying “Enough is enough with this bullshit!”
Asked O’Donnell: “Is that what Donald Trump Jr. said to his mother when his mother under oath accused his father of raping her? The very first person to accuse Donald Trump of rape was his first wife, Donald Trump Jr’s mother, and she did it under oath in deposition. She said Donald Trump attacked her and ripped her hair out and raped her because he was angry that her plastic surgeon did a bad job on his hair.”
O’Donnell then went on to rip Trump for his statement when asked if he raped Carroll: “She’s not my type.”
Said O’Donnell: “That’s the number one thing that came to his mind. The number one thing was not, ‘I’ve never raped anyone and would never rape anyone.’ The number one thing was, ‘She’s not my type.’ That answer doesn’t prove that Donald Trump is a rapist, but that is a rapist’s answer. A rapist might think that’s a good answer. And it’s an answer Donald Trump has used before.”
