E. Jean Carroll’s “The Trump Accusers” Exposes Trump’s Many Sexual Assaults
E. Jean Carroll, the prolific writer and advice columnist, has just begun a new series for The Atlantic entitled “The Trump Accusers.” In the first installment, Carroll, who is currently embroiled in a lawsuit of her own against Donald Trump, speaks with Natasha Stoynoff, a former writer for People Magazine who was assaulted by Trump at his Mar-A-Lago property.
Stoynoff has spoken about her encounter with Trump several times over the years, with many corroborating her account of what occurred during a break in an interview she was conducting with Trump and his wife, Melania, who was seven months pregnant at the time.
Carroll strikes a playful tone in her prose, despite the gravity of the subject matter, revealing her clever signature dark humor:
“I remember his weight,” I say. “He leans on you like an oversexed mastodon.”
“If he did, I can’t remember it,” she replies.
And I say: “Maybe you just didn’t feel it.”
I raise my eyebrows.
Natasha looks at me, tilting her head. It takes a moment. Then she falls forward and practically rolls on her Zoom table.
Oh yes, surprised reader, we accusers scream with laughter.”
Carroll still has the dress she was wearing the night of her assault, and had taken her own accusations to the next level with a lawsuit against Trump that included a request for his DNA. Despite efforts from Trump’s lawyers to put the lawsuit on hold while an appeals court is deciding whether or not to dismiss a similar lawsuit from another Trump accuser, Summer Zervos, Trump has until September 15th to submit his DNA sample.
