More Domestic Violence in the White House (UPDATED)

GOPer attempts to win over women.

Another day, another alleged wife beater, this time speechwriter David Sorensen.

His is ex-wife, Jessica Corbett said Sorensen, “ran a car over her foot, put out a cigarette on her hand, threw her into a wall and grasped her menacingly by her hair while they were alone on their boat in remote waters off Maine’s coast, an incident she said left her fearing for her life.”

Axios  has a recording from Corbett: “When the FBI asked Corbett about her relationship with Sorensen last fall during his background check, she said she told them about the abuse and played an audio clip for them, which Axios has obtained. The clip is a recording she made of an argument with Sorensen.”

Of course, the real victim, according to Sorensen, is himself, and his ex is really the abusive one. “She didn’t deny getting physical with him, admitting she slapped him “every time he called me a [c*nt].”

See!!1! Q.E.D., bitches!

Unlike Porter, Sorensen’s duties did not require a security clearance, and so it is possible that no one knew that he (ALLEGEDLY) is a wife beater. Anyway, he resigned immediately upon being confronted to protect the White House from his drama, but says he’s gonna sue his ex for defamation. Uh-huh.

So what do we take-away from all this? Oh, that Comrade Trump’s White House is really bad at picking men (Hi, Hope Hicks!) and really doesn’t care that much about domestic violence. Hard to believe.

UPDATE 1: wow – Trump is doubling down defending the abusors.

    Jaysus Kee-rice’t!! Where the hell did they find this criminal! These are serious criminal acts. This sonofabitch should have been prosecuted for aggravated assault.

    “Only the best people?” Really, I thought nothing would shock me any more about the Orange Asshole’s WH, but this does, big time.

      I believe the ex-wife said that she didn’t feel she could file charges because of his position with LePage, as his connections would have made a police report an even worse bet than average citizen filing a police report against an abusive spouse.

    It doesn’t appear that Comrade Stupid is learning from his mistakes. Sad.

    Redhand, I honor your civilized self for being shocked, but I’m not particularly. Violent-tempered men from middle-class backgrounds and above have been inflicting harm on wives and kids in the privacy of home for – well, forever. In the heat of the moment they draw no lines between screaming, physical grabbing, and stubbing out a cigarette on a hand.

    It’s no longer acceptable as it long was, but they go ahead with it as long as they don’t get caught. I’m not surprised that guys like this wind up in the orbit of someone like Trump. Like likes like, or at least is comfortable with like – and I think people are adept, not necessarily consciously, at sniffing out their “peers” – part of which is finding others who understand the unwritten reality, and cover for them.The shocking part is that they’ve ended up in the White House in the first place, en masse.

      Yeah (Sigh). As an immigration lawyer I do a lot of asylum work, representing battered women from Central America who have claims for asylum because the government is unable/unwilling to protect them. So I am kind of inured to the fact that men are regularly violent to women. But the cultural wave of disclosure and revulsion of the phenomenon here in the U.S. took me by surprise. I should have known better how widespread the problem is here, and also that its root cause is not poverty, but perverted human nature.

      That Trump was elected despite his clear history as a misogynist and serial abuser of women, because “If you’re a star you can get away with it,” brings shame on our nation far beyond his own crimes and misdeeds while in office. I want his departure from office to be so disgraceful and shameful for him that he never recovers from it.

        I’m with you — assuming that he’s emotionally capable of shame. But if his turfing-out were to result in the rest of humanity refusing to deal with him at all, that would be good enough.

        I think that the Access Hollywood thing would have zilched him if he had been running against another man, one with at least the appearance of decency. Or *maybe* a woman, if she hadn’t been the focus of over 20 yrs of malign gossip.
