Man, Trump is just setting all kinds of new precedents, isn’t he?

Courtesy of NYT:

A New York appeals court on Thursday rejected President Trump’s argument that the Constitution makes him immune from state lawsuits, clearing the way for a defamation suit from a former contestant on “The Apprentice” who has said Mr. Trump groped her.

The five-judge panel in Manhattan ruled that Summer Zervos, who competed on Mr. Trump’s reality game show, could go forward with her lawsuit, which she filed after Mr. Trump said her claims that he had groped and kissed her against her will were lies.

The 3-to-2 ruling upholds a lower-court decision from a year ago that similarly concluded the president could be sued in state court while in office for actions unrelated to his official duties.

“The current sitting president attempts to shield himself from consequences for his alleged unofficial misconduct by relying upon the constitutional protection of the presidency,” Justice Dianne T. Renwick wrote for the majority. “We reject defendant President Trump’s argument.”

Ms. Zervos and nine other women claimed during the presidential campaign in 2016 that Mr. Trump had engaged in sexual misconduct.

Damn, with so much going on I almost forgot about Summer Zervos. 

But clearly, this is not a woman who is going to allow us to ignore her or her case against Trump. 

And if HER case is allowed to move forward, I wonder if that means other victims of his will be filing lawsuits as well?

Boy, that running for president was such a good idea, right?

    Hit him where it counts.. his bank account.

    the so called president is already fund raising off of his veto
    =========================================

    Trump campaign fundraises off his first veto

    ….“The liberal swamp will never learn. That’s why I just VETOED the Pro-Crime, Pro-Drugs, and Pro-Open Borders Democrat inspired resolution,” a message under Trump’s name said in the email to supporters.

    “Liberals in the Senate chose politics, I chose YOU. 59 Senators voted to put illegal immigrants and political games over YOUR safety. DISGRACEFUL!” the Trump email continued, referring to members of both parties who voted for the resolution rebuking Trump’s move on Thursday.

    “Even with this Veto, the attacks will keep coming from the ‘Border Deniers’ and their allies in the mainstream media. We have to do something HUGE to have the resources to fight back. That’s why I need you to contribute to the most important fund of my presidency – the OFFICIAL WALL DEFENSE FUND……

    Honest question Stormy Daniels. How do you ask Donald Trump if he would like to be spanked with a magazine, he pulls down his pants, she does it. Harassment. lmao

    Alot of women who were humiliated by men feel brave enough to come forth. The culture of denial is so strong that even women go against these women. A time of reckoning has been long time coming for women. Let’s hope we keep moving forward as the Trump’s try to fast track us back to the stone ages.

    To Anonymous at 2:15 up there Stormy Daniels never claimed she was a victim of sexual harassment. She admitted it was consensual so I don’t know what you’re complaining about. And then saying real women just deal with it and move on with their lives like they don’t have a right to complain or file a lawsuit against somebody that’s done something terrible to them is just wrong. Most women have kept quiet for decades and decades because they were afraid. Women need to stand up not shy away. Maybe the problem wouldn’t be so gigantic if more people complained when it was done to them. I understand but if you don’t stand up for change it will never change.

      I understand that. She was the wrong woman to come forward. You can’t complain when you’re complicit; especially a porn star.

      The Donald loves him some bubble-headed bleach blondes. Thank God that I am not one, but what is in their head to think that his favor would advance them. If not, why would they go there. That’s lowering yourself to the gutter.
