Trump accuser's journalism teacher says she was 'rattled' after alleged sex assault

McLaughlin was Stoynoff's journalism professor, and told CBC's The Current that Stoynoff used to call him for professional advice. He said Stoynoff called him shortly after the alleged incident, and told him how Trump "had come onto her very strongly, very aggressively, and that it could have been much worse if someone who worked for him had not come into the room and interrupted them."

"She was really rattled, as you can understand," said McLaughlin. "She didn't know what to do, she was very conflicted, she was angry, she was really confused about how to deal with this."

'He was aggressive, he was litigious'

After discussing the situation together, McLaughlin said, Stoynoff decided it would be best if she kept the incident to herself.

"It was going to be a he said, she said," McLaughlin said. "And we were talking about one of the most influential people in North America at the time. He was just flying high with The Apprentice, he was aggressive, he was litigious."

Stoynoff ultimately decided to avoid any future assignments involving Trump, which McLaughlin believed was the right decision
.


A Canadian journalism professor, with no obvious dog in this hunt, is backing up her story in a report done by arguably the best TV journalism corporation in Canada (the CBC). In other words, she has some credible backup to her claims against Trump (not that a bunch of folks around here would be surprised by that ... but I thought a little reassurance would't hurt given they'll try to tear her down more).

Obviously, what Trump is doing to her and others is why folks do not report this so I figured posting this would be helping get the supportive word out.

1. Another story on this

Professor backs up Toronto writer’s assault accusation against Trump
https://www.thestar.com/news/gta/2016/10/14/professor-backs-up-toronto-writers-assault-accusation-against-trump.html
“The reason I’m speaking about this — and it is with her blessing, by the way — is that she is being accused by a man running for the presidency of the United States of being a complete liar, of fabricating a story about something that for her was quite horrible,” he said.

Stoynoff did not respond to the Star’s requests for comment.

“Now (Trump’s) got to say that I’m a liar, too, and I’m not. I’m telling the truth,” said McLaughlin, who recalled Stoynoff being deeply disturbed by her encounter with Trump.

“It really shook her and she didn’t know what to do, and among the people that she would turn to, I was one that she would call and ask for advice and that’s what she did,” said McLaughlin, a former journalism professor at Ryerson University who now teaches at the University of Toronto.
...
“What saddens me more is that someone of Donald Trump’s prominence is waging war against a young, talented, writer and saying things he knows are 100-per-cent wrong,” he said. “He knows he is not telling what happened accurately and I just … it seems to be a pattern with him.”
...
“I think that it’s terrible that she had to go through that. That someone who she thought admired her work turned on her that way, and destroyed what was a good professional relationship,” McLaughlin said. “Not only do I have compassion for Natasha but for anyone who has gone through this in their life.”

3. She's obviously telling the truth

 

He's a serial sexual predator.

A PREDATOR.

It's ridiculous that the Republicans ran this guy. Bush's oppo team couldn't find this stuff?

Come on!

He's a serial sexual predator.

4. His opponents in the primary could find this stuff, but they didn't use it because

they all thought they could use him to knock off their opponents and then, when he flamed out as the joke they knew him to be, they could pick up his supporters--but not if they angered those supporters by attacking their idol.

ON EDIT: Just like us now, they didn't want to knock him out too soon. But they underestimated his support among the deplorables and therefore waited too long.

5. I suspect he's worse than that

It wouldn't shock me if he's raped.

But bigger still, I'm very suspicious of his finances. I suspect this run was to elevate his "brand" and to get Clinton speaking fees (even if he lost) because his empire is a Bernie Madoff financial house of cards teetering before collapse.

He's had six bankruptcies corporately. He's had a gigantic loss in 1995 of nearly $1 billion. His casinos are gone or he's gone from them. His golf courses are losing money. His Apprentice TV cash is gone.

If he was as stinking rich as he claimed, he'd love to show everybody his tax returns to prove how rich he is. He'd love to get his ego stroked in the media that way. But he can't because his tax returns would reveal something else: that he isn't the big successful businessmen the GOP lamebrains think he is.

I strongly suspect he's a complete fraud - not just a sexual predator.

7. I'm guessing a new reality series based on the Trumps

I honestly believe he read somewhere about the net worth of the Kardashian/West clan and did this whole "presidential" thing as hype.

6. He is clearly well versed at the "denial/attack" response.

He is no shrinking pervert.
