Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

On a lighter note, excerpts from Stormy Daniels' upcoming book are out... they describe Trump's junk and sexual acumen...

Quote:
She describes Trump’s penis as “smaller than average” but “not freakishly small.”

“He knows he has an unusual penis,” Daniels writes. “It has a huge mushroom head. Like a toadstool…

“I lay there, annoyed that I was getting f'ed by a guy with Yeti pubes and a dick like the mushroom character in Mario Kart...

“It may have been the least impressive sex I’d ever had, but clearly, he didn’t share that opinion.”
Source

I would feel bad for just about anyone else being mocked in this way... but not Trump.

Much as Trump is an arse, I'm a bit "cringe" at these kinds of people. She'd have looked a lot more dignified if she'd kept her mouth shut (except if required to recount the events in a legal setting).

Cheap shots such as that which turn a quick profit on her book makes her look as bad as Trump.

I suppose when a porn star has to lower herself to look as bad as the president, you don't really need to say a lot more.

In the defense of the alt-righter Trump fans on here, I may have misjudged his character. It turns out he is a funghi to be around.

Indeed, she is very much unlike Trump, who is a man of morels.

I meant the reputation of Toad and Trump's member. I couldn't care less about Stormy.

It was a campaign issue after all: (starting at 1:18)

So if Stormy's account of Trump's penis is true, chalk his "guarantee" in that debate up as yet another lie.

Yup; that's where the "yet" part of my sentence comes into play. Not to be confused with "yeti pubes".

Yeah, no idea how one gets from that article to terrifisch's conclusion.
>Therapist notes from 6 years ago with details of the incident
>Passed polygraph test
>Contacted the media anonymously as soon as Kavanaugh's name was mentioned (before his nomination).

Here is an expert on false accusations describing the characteristics of them (this was written a year ago)
https://qz.com/980766/the-truth-abou...e-accusations/

Here is the twitter thread from this expert on Christine's particular case:
Did you really read the article? If so, I don't know how you could have missed the three paragraphs detailed below:

"After so many years, Ford said, she does not remember some key details of the incident. She said she believes it occurred in the summer of 1982, when she was 15, around the end of her sophomore year at the all-girls Holton-Arms School in Bethesda. Kavanaugh would have been 17 at the end of his junior year at Georgetown Prep.
At the time, Ford said, she knew Kavanaugh and Judge as “friendly acquaintances” in the private-school social circles of suburban Maryland. Her Holton-Arms friends mostly hung out with boys from the Landon School, she said, but for a period of several months socialized regularly with students from Georgetown Prep.
Ford said she does not remember how the gathering came together the night of the incident. She said she often spent time in the summer at the Columbia Country Club pool in Chevy Chase, where in those pre-cellphone days, teenagers learned about gatherings via word of mouth. She also doesn’t recall who owned the house or how she got there."

So, based on the excerpts above, the accuser is not sure which day, month or year the alleged assault took place nor does she know how the party came together, where it took place nor how she got there. As the author states, the accuser does not remember key details...

Don't sweat it, he's conservative and Trump approved. The mob has found him guilty.

Yes, I did read it, I posted it initially in this thread. I wasn't contending with the fact she forgot some items, but with the assertion that she doesn't seem credible.

You ignored the information that indicated this is unlikely a false accusation (therapist notes, polygraph, timing of accusation, etc.) and rely on an unsubstantiated premise.

Specifically, the premise that's it's abnormal she doesn't remember all the details. Experts tell us the exact opposite. It's normal for someone to forget some details due to both the trauma and it being over 30 years ago.

Linda Fairenstein former chief of the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office’s Sex Crimes Bureau:
Quote:
... according to Fairstein, it was completely normal that Ford “didn’t remember” several details.

“If she testifies, I would expect her to say ‘I don’t remember’ scores of times,” Fairstein said, for two reasons: the passage of time and trauma. “She found this experience so upsetting that she felt her life was in danger. There might be 220 things she doesn’t know and then a very specific sentence about what happened that was so traumatic."

Ford has alleged that Kavanaugh pinned her down and clumsily groped her during a prep school party when Ford, 15, was a sophomore and Kavanaugh, 17, a junior. Now 51, Ford, a research psychologist, told The Post, “I thought he might inadvertently kill me.”

According to psychologist Anne Meltzer, it may be challenging to recall peripheral details of an assault years later — such as who spread word of the party, who was the designated driver — but that should not detract from a victim’s veracity “if she can clearly and consistently articulate central details of what happened, such as the who, what and where,” she told The Post.

Meltzer, who has not reviewed the details of this case, has testified as an expert witness hundreds of times in child sexual abuse cases, with victims up to 17 years old.

Well then, let's look at her therapist's notes in which she claims she was assaulted by 4 men - which the accuser now says the therapist "got wrong" and wrote incorrectly and there were only 4 boys at the party but two assaulted her. Except, one didn't really assault her; he watched and then jumped on top of both of them and effectively freed her. Except, that person, Mark Judge, denies the event completely.

And if the therapist's notes were wrong about the number of men involved in the alleged assault, how many other inconsistencies are contained in his notes? It gives question/rise to reasonable doubt.

PS in many states, polygraph tests are not admissible as evidence because they have been proven unreliable. Even at the Federal level, a polygraph test is only admissible at the discretion of judge.

Wouldn't it be great if conservatives could quote posts without screwing up the HTML? It's really not that difficult, even greens and independents can do it.
