3. Of course because HE is an abuser. Look at Melania's face when she is in the room with him.

Saw it in my mom years ago. This man is a nasty man.

14. There's been no doubt in my mind for ages. I hope Melania manages to escape...

I hope your mom did.

We at DU often speculate about the pre-nup -- from my point of view, few things could keep a woman tethered to a man like a threat to her child(ren). I wonder just how many marital rights she actually signed away?

18. Yes

And Trump is quick to say that he is innocent. He can relate to Porter's situation.

32. This is incredible..He offered no support for those who were abused..

He just defended the abuser. Basically Trump said that Porter said he is innocent, and that is enough for me..

13. Yesterday we had a mandatory class

on sexual harassment and violence.

When the presenter put #me too on the board I whispered that #whitehouse.gov should be there just for the hypocrisy.

Everything we learned does not apply to the orange assaulter or his staff of thugs!

20. I would encourage any victim of domestic violence to report the incident to police.

I understand that reporting domestic violence can be humiliating, but the police investigate and make arrests. With arrests come mug shots and fingerprints. They also photograph victims. These go a lot further in proving what happened than a photo taken privately by the victim.

I donít doubt for one minute what happened, but proving it will be difficult without more evidence from the victim.

21. You know if that is all it took to prove your innocence

I think the United States would have the lowest prison population ever.

Judge: "Did you rob that bank."

Defendant: "I am innocent, judge."

Judge: "Well in that case, release the defendant."

23. Well..

Iím assuming as part of the security clearance investigation, Porter was asked about the abuse allegations and told the FBI that he didnít do it. So, if he comes out and now admits to it that would mean he lied to the FBI.

I donít know, but this administration, and especially Trump, continues to not surprise me - reading the Presidentís statement that pretty much supports the action of Porter - well, I should be, but Iím not surprised. So sad....

Can you think of one person, just one who claims to be innocent but is in fact guilty? Anybody? Think hard.
