Last week E. Jean Carroll, a well-known advice columnist, came forward and alleged that Donald Trump raped her in the 90’s. An investigation will probably be unfruitful given the time that has passed, but one should be completed regardless. Trump has over a dozen accusers at this point who all deserve some form of justice, it warranted. Unfortunately, Trump isn’t the only one running around who needs to be brought to justice.
Let’s not forget his good buddy Roy Moore who’s also been accused of sexual misconduct multiple times. He has just announced his intent to run again for Senate in Alabama. He lost last time to a Democrat because a number of woman came forward and accused him of statutory rape so many times that “Roy Moore sexual misconduct allegations” has its own Wikipedia page. Trump warned Moore not to run again, but now Mitch McConnell is taking it even further. He openly stated, “we’ll be opposing Roy Moore vigorously.”
So, what does that have to do with Donald Trump? Trump’s relationships with fellow Republicans has been rocky at best, so ultimately Trump could share the same fate as Roy Moore by the leader of the Republican party. If Trump continues on this path and becomes even more toxic, Mitch McConnell and the rest of the Republican Party could be inclined to turn their backs on him just like Roy Moore. This is even more likely given that he will be a losing ticket in the 2020 election.
Trump’s sexual assault accusers have been silenced since the 2016 election. They’ve been blocked by Trump and his friends as well as the conservative media base. The momentum is long over due and if these accusers could be heard once and for all Trump’s fate would be sealed for good.
