But there are several women who allege that the Donald has taken advantage of them and made them feel uncomfortable. NBC's Katy Tur is one of them.
In her book about her experience working the 2016 election's campaign trail, she revealed how Trump allegedly sexually harassed her on the "Morning Joe" set and how she froze as a result and worried that it would cost her her job.
The tweet sparked a Twitter discussion, with some users pondering if kissing a woman on the cheek is considered sexual assault.
Wait, did he try to kiss her on the lips (predator) or on the cheek (gross old man)? Both inappropriate but legally they are diff maybe?— Josh Miller (@millejr4) September 12, 2017
They're not. And it's somehow both incredible and incredibly expected that some man would trying to differentiate.— Coffee Spoonie (@coffeespoonie) September 12, 2017
You're saying they are not legally different? Is that true? I wish that were the case but I don't think it is.— Josh Miller (@millejr4) September 12, 2017
I don't really much care what you think tbh; I'm just letting you know. They both constitute sexual harassment and unwanted sexual advances.— Coffee Spoonie (@coffeespoonie) September 12, 2017
Go read Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. This information is available to you free of charge on something known as "The Google".— Coffee Spoonie (@coffeespoonie) September 12, 2017
For some, Tur's quote explained a lot.
Agree. The way Trump went after Kathy Tur - naming her, pointing at her - all the signs of the sexually rejected male were there.— m☕️g (@mugrogue) September 12, 2017
Others wanted to know why Tur didn't bring this up sooner.
The time to make this public was before November 2016. Anyway, better late than never.— Arshan (@__arshan) September 12, 2017
Plenty of women came forward before Nov. 2016. They got shamed then dismissed.— Nia Platt (@niaplatt2) September 12, 2017
Sadly, however, instances like this didn't seem to have an impact on his supporters during the election.
Would have been another outrage in the long list of things that didn't matter during the election.— Kim Leonard (@kimleonard) September 12, 2017
Plus, the fact that Tur thought her career was at stake for rejecting what she perceived to be his advance is troubling, to say the least.
Exactly. Rs didn't care. Evangelicals didn't care. Katy would have been dismissed as a serious journalist.— molly (@axlsgirl13) September 13, 2017
In the words of Trump himself, the whole thing is just SAD.
