Let’s see. Donald Trump has small hands, not very good for groping. But now he’s been called an octopus. He must have a dozen of those small hands, eh?
As I type these words the Tweets on #nextfaketrumpvictim are coming in at a clip too rapid for me to keep up with. At the bottom of this post, after the story, I’ll include some of the most relevant and skeptical ones. My heart is gladdened to report that our women are standing by our leader, using common sense to recognize that this whole affair is a media psy op.
If you check out the next post down on the homepage, you’ll see that Ann Coulter predicted that the media would put out a casting call for “victims” of Trump’s octopus hands.
Excerpt from the New York Daily News
Five women came forward to say Trump had groped them against their will — just days after the Republican candidate said his vulgar 2005 boast that he could grab women “by the p—y” was just “locker room talk.”
Thirty years ago, Jessica Leeds of Manhattan encountered Trump on a flight, she told The New York Times.
She said he began to fondle her, grabbed her breasts and tried to snake his hand up her skirt. “He was like an octopus,” Leeds, 74, told the Times. “His hands were everywhere. It was an assault.”
Former receptionist Rachel Crooks, meanwhile, said she ran into the misogynist mogul in Trump Tower in 2005. She claims Trump grabbed her and began slobbering on her cheek, and then kissed her on the mouth.

“I was so upset that he thought I was so insignificant that he could do that,” Crooks told the Times.
Trump issued a blanket denial in Sunday night’s debate when asked if he’d ever acted on his bullying “grab ’em by the p—y” brag.
“It’s just words, it’s just words,” he insisted. The bombastic businessman also denied the allegations put forth by Leeds and Crooks.
“None of this ever took place,” Trump, 70, shouted at the Times reporter.
Jason Miller, a senior adviser for Trump, denounced the article.
A third woman also came forward to the Palm Beach Post on Wednesday to say she’d been groped by Trump in 2003 at his Florida resort.
Mindy McGillivray, 36, said she was manhandled at Mar-a-Lago.

“Donald just grabbed my ass,” she told a companion right after he groped her, the newspaper said.
Sources in Trump’s camp told CNN he was drafting a lawsuit against the Palm Beach Post as well.
Cassancra Searles, Miss Washington 2013, also spoke up Wednesday, claiming Trump repeatedly grabbed her buttocks and begged her to come to his hotel room when he owned the Miss Universe pageant, NBC reported.
Later Wednesday, People magazine writer Natasha Stoynoff posted a piece claiming Trump cornered her at Mar-a-Lago in 2005, and shoved his tongue down her throat with his pregnant wife Melania upstairs.
“Have you ever been to Peter Luger’s for steaks? I’ll take you. We’re going to have an affair, I’m telling you,” she said he told her.
Trump’s campaign said Stoynoff’s report was “pile-on fiction.”
