So hunka-hunka burning love Lord Damp Nut has been ordered to sit for a deposition in the defamation lawsuit lodged by longtime New York columnist E. Jean Carroll, whom Trump called a liar while he was in office after she accused him of sexual assault in the mid-1990’s. He once said he couldn’t have raped her because she wasn’t his type.
NEW YORK (AP) — Former President Donald Trump angrily lashed out Wednesday, calling the nation’s legal system a “broken disgrace” after a judge ruled he must answer questions under oath next week in a defamation lawsuit lodged by a writer who says he raped her in the mid-1990s.
He also called the 2019 lawsuit by E. Jean Carroll, a longtime advice columnist for Elle magazine, “a hoax and a lie.”
The outburst late in the day came hours after U.S. District Judge Lewis A. Kaplan in Manhattan rejected a request by his lawyers to delay a deposition scheduled for Oct. 19.
And the usual denials ensue:
“I don’t know this woman, have no idea who she is, other than it seems she got a picture of me many years ago, with her husband, shaking my hand on a reception line at a celebrity charity event,” Trump said.
“She completely made up a story that I met her at the doors of this crowded New York City Department Store and, within minutes, ‘swooned’ her. It is a Hoax and a lie, just like all the other Hoaxes that have been played on me for the past seven years,” he said.
Then he grumbled: “Now all I have to do is go through years more of legal nonsense in order to clear my name of her and her lawyer’s phony attacks on me. This can only happen to ‘Trump’!”
Anything he says in the deposition can be entered as evidence in the trial, and Lordy, I hope he couldn’t have raped her because she wasn’t his type again. I’d like to see a jury’s reaction to that.
