Yet another woman has stepped forward to accuse President Trump of sexual assault.
Her name is E. Jean Carroll, and she’s quite a character.
Carroll is a seasoned journalist, and in her memoir titled “What Do We Need Men For?” she accused President Donald Trump of raping her back in the 90s.
However, her interviews on television regarding the alleged rape have called into question her credibility and sanity from both viewers and her interviewers.
Watch this clip from a recent interview Carroll gave with CNN to see what we mean:
Some Twitter users are calling Carroll's behavior in the interview bizarre and pointing out that it looks like the interviewer Alisyn Camerota seems to be trying to feed Carroll answers, but failing and getting frustrated throughout the interview.
Take a look at these tweets made in response to the interview:
In another interview with Anderson Cooper on CNN, Carroll also made some strange claims, causing the network to cut to a commercial break.
This prompted more reactions to Caroll's assertions on Twitter:
Even some anti-Trump Twitter users think Carroll's interviews have been just...off:
Here's an overview of Carroll's allegations and the controversy they have sparked from La Corte News:
E. Jean Carroll, the writer who alleged that President Trump sexually assaulted her decades ago, said that most people consider rape "sexy" and stated a different reason for her decision not to press charges against the president, reported the Daily Caller.
Carroll on rape: The writer said that she doesn't consider herself a victim. “The word ‘rape’ carries so many sexual connotations. “This was not sexual. It just … it hurt … it just was …," she said referring to the alleged incident with President Trump. “I think most people think of rape as a … it is a violent assault, it is not sexual," CNN's Anderson Cooper interjected.
"I think most people think of rape as being sexy. Think of the fantasies," noted Carroll, stunning Cooper and prompting him to cut to commercials.
The allegations: In another interview with CNN's Alisyn Camerota, Carroll described what allegedly took place in the mid-1990s. “When we walked into the lingerie department there was nobody there, which is strange. It was in the evening, so — and on the counter were three really fancy boxes and a see-through bodysuit. He walked right to the bodysuit and snatched it up and said, ‘Go put this on.’ Now, that struck me as so funny because here I am, a 52 — I am not going to put — my idea was — I said, ‘No, you put it on.’ And he said, ‘No, it looks like it fits you.’ I said, ‘No, it goes with your eyes.’ So I am spinning a comedy scene in my head," explained Carroll.
The Hill has more details on Carroll's allegations and President Trump's response to her claim of sexual assault:
President Trump said Monday that writer E. Jean Carroll was “totally lying” when she recently accused him of raping her during an encounter in a New York department store in the mid-1990s.
In an exclusive interview with The Hill, the president vehemently denied the allegations just hours after Carroll detailed the alleged incident during a cable news interview.
“I’ll say it with great respect: Number one, she’s not my type. Number two, it never happened. It never happened, OK?” the president said while seated behind the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office.
Carroll said on CNN that Trump “just went at it” when he allegedly cornered her in a dressing room at Bergdorf Goodman, adding that “he pulled down my tights, and it was a fight.”
She first came forward with her allegations on Friday. Trump denied the allegations in a statement that day and then again while speaking with reporters on Saturday.
When asked if Carroll was lying, Trump on Monday repeated his assertion that he had never met her.
“Totally lying. I don’t know anything about her,” he said. “I know nothing about this woman. I know nothing about her. She is — it’s just a terrible thing that people can make statements like that.”
“I love that I’m not his type,” Carroll said in an interview on CNN, responding to Trump’s comments shortly after they were published.
She pointed out that Trump has denied all the accusations from women who have accused him of sexual misconduct.
"He denies, he turns it around, he threatens and he attacks," Carroll said.
Carroll's account of the alleged incident was detailed in an excerpt of her forthcoming book published Friday afternoon in New York Magazine. The excerpt included a photo that identified Carroll, Trump, his then-wife, Ivana Trump, and Carroll's then-husband, John Johnson, attending the same party around 1987.
Trump dismissed the photo on Saturday, telling reporters, “Standing with my coat on in a line — give me a break — with my back to the camera. I have no idea who she is.”
Carroll, a longtime advice columnist for Elle magazine, alleged in her book that she ran into Trump at Bergdorf Goodman in New York City during fall 1995 or spring 1996. The two recognized each other and Trump asked her for advice on purchasing a gift for a woman, according to Carroll.
After she suggested buying a handbag or a hat, Carroll claimed that Trump turned his attention to lingerie. The two joked that the other should try the clothing on before they eventually made their way to the dressing room, she said in her account.
Once inside, Trump allegedly lunged at her, pushed her against a wall and kissed her before pulling down her tights and raping her. Carroll wrote that she fought Trump off and then ran out of the dressing room. She said the alleged incident lasted no more than three minutes.
Explaining why she didn’t come forward until now, Carroll wrote about the retribution and dismissal she expected to receive and called herself “a coward.”
She has said in interviews following the publication of her account that she does not plan to file a criminal complaint over the incident.
