ST. LOUIS, MO — Republican nominee Donald Trump held a press conference less than two hours before the second presidential debate Sunday with women who have accused former president Bill Clinton of sexually assaulting them. Also in attendance was the victim of child rape whose rapist Hillary Clinton once defended in court.
A reporter at the start of the press conference tried asking Trump about touching a women without consent. The GOP nominee didn’t respond and said that the women with him would each be giving short statements. (RELATED: Meet Bill Clinton’s Accusers)
“I’m here to support Mr. Trump,” Paula Jones said at the event. Jones has accused Bill Clinton of taking out his penis and asking her to kiss it in 1991.
Kathy Shelton said, “At 12 years old Hillary put me through something you would never put a 12 year old through, she says she is for women and children.” Shelton was raped on the side of an Arkansas road in 1975 and Clinton defended the 41-year old rapist. He only served less than one year in prison due to Hillary blocking the use of certain damning forensic evidence.
Shelton at the press conference referenced a video showing Clinton laughing about the rapist passing a lie detector test in which Hillary said, “forever destroyed my faith in polygraphs.”
Then Juanita Broaddrick, who accuses Clinton of raping her in 1978, said, “Mr.Trump might have said some bad words, but Bill Clinton raped me and Hillary Clinton threatened me.” Broaddrick added, “no comparison.”
Kathleen Willey, who has accused Bill Clinton of putting her hands on his “genitals” while she was a White House aide, said, “I cried” when Trump said that he wants to make America “great again.”
After the women were done giving statements a reporter continued to ask Trump about sexually touching a woman without consent. Paula Jones yelled back, “Why don’t y’all Bill Clinton about that? Go ahead and ask Hillary as well!”
