‘I Am Sick of It’: E. Jean Carroll Explains Why She Came Forward to Tell Her Story

Advice columnist E. Jean Carroll became the latest woman to accuse President Donald Trump of sexual assault this week and explained that she is “fed up” with the president going on without consequence.

“With all the 16 women who have come forward, it’s the same — he denies it, he turns it around, he attacks, and he threatens,” Carroll said on CNN Monday morning. “Then everybody forgets it, and then the next woman comes along. And I am sick of it.”

According to PBS News, there have indeed been 16 women who have accused the president of sexual assault and four more that have accused him of sexual misconduct, the earliest of incidents dating back to the early 1980s.

“Think of how many women have come forward — nothing happens,” Carroll added. “The only thing we can do is sit with you and tell our stories so that we empower other women to come forward and tell their stories because we have to change this culture of sexual violence.”

Watch the video below:

Carroll revealed in an op-ed for New York Magazine last week that she encountered Trump in a department store in late 1995 or early 1996. She claimed the now-president forcibly raped her in the dressing room.

A senior White House official stated that the accusation is “a completely false and unrealistic story.”

Carroll assured on Monday that she had no political reason to come forward.

“I’m barely political. I can’t name you the candidates who are running right now,” she said. “No, I am not political, I am not organized it is the last thing — all I want to do — well I’m just fed up. I’m just fed up with what’s been going on.”

Carroll will also reveal her story in her upcoming book “What Do We Need Men For? A Modest Proposal.”

“I can’t believe that he is in the White House,” Carroll added. “And it makes me sick. What else can I do but just tell my story?”

The bizarro interview this nut did with Anderson Cooper says it all. I hope her book sales are nil.

I wouldn’t believe her even if her tongue came Notarized. She’s simply another of the DNC’s paid “victims”.

She was so sick of it that it took almost 40 years to come forward.

Maybe her career needs a boost or someone cut her a check. This tactic failed with Kavanagh, but some will not learn. q.v. the continuing efforts of Nadler, et al.

One wonders what happened to the women who accused Kavanaugh? See the Devil’s Dictionary for “used” and “discarded”.
