Just Like Trump: The Former Guy’s Inner Circle Is Full of Men Accused of Abuse, Harassment, and Violence

In a new essay for Talking Points Memo, writer Matt Shuham outlines the troubling histories of several men who have maintained close ties to Donald Trump that share his pattern of abusive behaviors.

Shulham first acknowledges the dozens of accusations of sexual assault and harassment women have brought against Donald Trump over the years, to the point that they’ve become inseparable from his political identity. But not only has this not impacted Trump’s success, it’s also led him to endorse several candidates for office who have been accused by those who know them of domestic violence, threatening behavior, or sexual harassment. Like attracts like, as the saying goes.

Rob Porter, Steve Bannon, and Roy Moore each get a mention, but Shuham goes into more detail when describing the accusations levied against other Trump cronies like Herschel Walker, who has a history of domestic abuse and mental health issues.

Trump’s choice in Pennsylvania, Sean Parnell, has been credibly accused by his wife, who has made multiple claims of domestic violence against the candidate as part of a years-long child custody dispute, including that he physically abused their children, choked her, and pinned her down and called her “a whore.”

Then there’s Max Miller, whom former White House communications director Stephanie Grisham about in a Washington Post opinion piece. Grisham related that Trump and his wife, Melania, “didn’t seem to care” when she told them that her recently-ended relationship with Miller had turned violent.
