Women were the first Trump whistleblowers


Three years ago, before it heard from diplomats, ambassadors and lieutenant colonels — the country heard from a yoga teacher, an actress, a restaurant owner, a makeup artist — and me.

When it comes to Donald Trump, we were the first whistleblowers.

On the eve of the 2016 election, I was among more than a dozen women who came forward about being forcibly grabbed, groped and kissed by Trump. We wanted to warn the country it was in danger of voting for a serial predator.

Trump, of course, called us liars. He attacked our looks. At one pumped-up rally, he said of me: “Look at her. Look at her words. Tell me what you think. I don’t think so!”

We got hate mail, death threats.

And what did he get? The keys to the office once held by Washington, Lincoln and the Roosevelts.

I always wonder how Trump voters would have voted if one of Trump's accusers had been their sister, their daughter, their mother.
