Stephen Colbert on Trump's Sexual Assault Denial

July 9th 2019


Author E. Jean Carroll alleges that Trump raped her 23 years ago in a high-end department store dressing room. No need to actually write a joke about Trump’s arrogant dismissive denial, Colbert just quoted him “she’s not my type” and “it never happened”. 

Colbert also did a good job illustrating the media’s complicity in protecting powerful people from allegations of sexual misconduct. Almost no media outlets covered E. Jean’s story and even though the New York Post ran something, one of its editors quickly had it removed!
