WASHINGTON — Three women who have previously accused President Donald Trump of sexual harassment shared their stories on NBC's Megyn Kelly Today.

Jessica Leeds, Samantha Holvey and Rachel Crooks on Monday told of alleged harassment by Trump spanning decades.

The White House called the claims false and "totally disputed in most cases." It said "the timing and absurdity of these false claims speak volumes."

One of the accusers, Rachel Crooks, called the White House statement "laughable."

Crooks said of sexual misconduct: "I think politicians seem to be immune to this."

Holvey described the pain the women felt after Trump's victory. "We are private citizens and for us to put ourselves out there, to try to show America who this man is, and especially how he views women, for them to say, 'Meh, we don't care,' it hurt."

The women, who first shared their stories before the November 2016 election, were holding a news conference later Monday to call for a congressional investigation into Trump's alleged behavior. They cited the recent revelations of sexual misconduct by prominent men in business, media and politics for their decision to speak out publicly against Trump once again.

"The environment's different," Holvey said. "Let's try again."

An investigation sounds both practical and prudent. But, can we first agree to a definition of "sexual harassment"?

The only type of leader who have such faithful followers that he/she can abuse others in the group, lie every day about obvious documented and proven events, make repeated predictions that do not come true and yet justify those same predictions in inventive and decptive ways to their followers, exonerate themselves of any guilt or moral failings are typical "CULT" leaders.

People who support Trump's continuation in the Presidency need to think about their rational for doing so and its implications to our democracy.

I might possibly believe the women on either end, they are lookers, but in no way would I believe the one in the center.

A tax break for a golf coarse. Really? Why not try trickle up instead of trickle down economics. Give the poor and middle class money and watch the economy sing. $5000 to anyone making less than $50000.

No One even knows what Sexual Harassment is. Is it SIMPLY touching someone?? Do you have to Grab or rub their AXX For there to be a sexual Harassment violation, To Lean in and Get a Hug or a Quick Kiss is that Sexual Harassment?? I simply think that these women are just getting their 15 minutes of Fame, If many of these women did not have a Puxxy there would be a Bounty on them, Enough is too Much already.

PJB - Excellent observation and one I’ve made previously. All those who worship Trump are easily duped cultist worshipers with a void filled by such a charlatan. If only they would go the way of Jim Jones.
