Guilty Trump Backer Gets Off Easy

22 May 2017

A millionaire who supported Donald Trump has been convicted of sexually abusing a housekeeper. Cenk Uygur, Hannah Cranston, and Brett Erlich, the hosts of The Young Turks, tell you what happened.

“He was a millionaire, in Washington to toast President Trump’s inauguration.

She was a maid, tasked with cleaning rooms that cost more in a few days than her monthly rent.

On Jan. 19, as the nation’s capital swelled with tourists and protesters, the millionaire and the maid met on the 10th floor of the Mayflower Hotel downtown, in Room 1065.

As she made his bed, he approached from behind and began rubbing her buttocks, according to a police report.

“This is very nice stuff,” he said, according to the report. “I like that!”

  1. Bethlehem Rally for Palestinian prisoners develops into anti-Trump protest

    Ma`an – Solidarity demonstrations with the hunger striking prisoners developed into fierce anti-Trump rallies. At least 20 Palestinians were shot and injured during rallies that were violently suppressed by Israeli forces. In front of the the Nativity Church in Bethlehem, protesters chanted “Trump, listen! The prisoners will not kneel!” and “We have a message to the Americans: Prisoners are our priority!”. An effigy representing Palestinian prisoners was erected in front of the Nativity Church. However, Trump avoided the location, heading back to Jerusalem by another route after his meeting with President Abbas. [ak]
