E. Jean Carroll, Donald Trump, and a rape accusation from an earlier era

Byron York, Washington Examiner

The alleged incident took place more than 20 years ago. Carroll remained silent as Trump, already famous at the time of the alleged incident, became a TV star in the 2000s, flirted with politics, and then ran for president beginning in 2015. Carroll remained silent as the #MeToo movement, spurred by allegations of rape and sexual assault against some of the very men she features in "The Most Hideous Men in NYC Walking Tour," got its start. She spoke out only when she had a book to promote. So in the end, the E. Jean Carroll story will likely join a long list of contentious issues that Trump supporters and adversaries fight over and never, ever settle.
