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.
Peoples lives are being shattered and destroyed by a mere allegation. Some are true and some are false. Some are old and some are new. There is no recovery for someone falsely accused – life and career are gone. Is there no such thing any longer as Due Process?
