There's no proof she's a victim. Accusations that are unproven should not be for public consumption that effects your life the way this has.

Well there's no proof he's innocent either, so there's that.

You know that makes zero sense buddy. Innocent til proven guilty. Otherwise I could accuse you of some made up BS here, point and laugh "haha, theres no proof that you didn't do the BS I just accused you of!"

Exactly. That sums it all up rather well.

hang on, you're a woman, suppose this happened to you? wouldn't you want people to take you seriously?

Wrecking a mans life isn't being taken seriously. What would be proper conduct is not going public, but privately going to the police so they can investigate. In this case it's past the statutes, so they woudn't. Well that's too bad, next time don't wait 20 years to come forward. But don't come out with unprovable accusations that can ruin a mans life infornt of 6 billion people.

That's ridiculous. So if you run for any position of power, anyone can come out with a claim, an unsubstantiated claim and then you're disqualified automatically? That's a dangerous and undemocratic precedent and bound to be abused.

Should Trump have done what he did? Depends on how you look at the situation, did he mock her or the fact that her accusation is taken as fact by anyone on the left? Did he mock a sexual assault victim or a person who expects to be believed even without an ounce of evidence? I agree that he shouldn't have mocked her but she has provided nothing as proof other than "I remember that it was him". 

Where did I claim he was disqualified by being accused? He disqualified himself by his behaviour during the hearing, not by the accusations in itself.


And for the second part, assuming someone is lying is equally as bad as assuming someone is quilty.

What behavior are you referring to? Him raising his voice when facing accusations that can ruin his life isn't out of bounds.
