On Monday, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders repeatedly denied the numerous, detailed allegations of sexual assault against Donald Trump, and claimed:
And, in this case, the President has denied any of these allegations, as have eyewitnesses. And several reports have shown those eyewitnesses also back up the President’s claim in this process. […]
In terms of the specific eyewitness accounts, there have been multiple reports and I’d be happy to provide them to you after the briefing has completed.
And on Tuesday, Sanders sent her list of eyewitnesses to Think Progress. It will surprise no one to learn that much like Trump, the list is a bad joke.
There’s Katie Blair, who disputes the claim of Samantha Holvey, who says that Trump “personally inspected each of the contestants” at the 2006 Miss USA pageant. Blair wasn’t in the 2006 Miss USA pageant.
Melissa Young is eyewitness number two against Samantha Holvey, with the White House describing her as “someone who ‘Also Competed In The 2005 Miss USA Pageant.’” Except Samantha Holvey didn’t compete in the 2005 Miss USA Pageant.
And eyewitness number three is Anthony Gilberthorpe, a confirmed liar, who “claimed to be an eyewitness disputing the account of Jessica Leeds, who says Trump groped her on an airplane in 1980.” Gilberthorpe said that he perfectly remembers watching Trump and Leeds on an airplane 37 years ago, that nothing happened AND that Leeds, “then in her 30s, confided in him (an 18-year-old stranger) that she wanted to marry Trump.”
And there you have it. The eyewitnesses who totally back up Donald Trump’s claims that he’s not a vile, disgusting pig and serial sexual assaulter.
