In October of 2016, People Magazine writer, Natasha Stoynoff, came forward to accuse Donald Trump of attacking her in 2005 when he allegedly pushed her up against a wall at his Mar-A-Lago estate. Natasha claims Trump put his “tongue down” her throat.
A year later, following the cascade of allegations against men in the entertainment industry, Stoynoff is asking once again, “Why hasn’t Trump suffered the same fate as Louis CK?”
As you may know, in the last two months, many high-profile stars, executives, and even journalists have stepped down from their positions due to sexual misconduct of varying forms.
The writer said in a column for this weeks issue of People Magazine that “time will tell” to see if Donald will suffer the same fate as other men in the public’s sphere.
A must watch: Legal Scholar Alan Dershowitz was just on @foxandfriends talking of what is going on with respect to the greatest Witch Hunt in U.S. political history. Enjoy!

She asked the question in the op-ed, “Is Trump subjected to a different standard as other men?” Stoynoff posited that she’s hopeful “this revolution will take hold” soon.
Natasha claimed many women have suffered in silence over the years and for the first time, their voices are being heard. The use of the hashtag, #MeToo, is telling their stories, and the “enormity of the numbers” is astonishing.
As you may know, several women have accused the president of assault following the release of the 2005 Hollywood Access tapes last year.
In the recording, the now-president can be heard – in a manner where he boasts about his status as a celebrity – bragging about hypothetical scenarios where he “grabs women by the p*ssy.”
This incident, and many others undoubtedly, led to the Women’s March at the beginning of the year where over a million people protested Trump’s inauguration.
However, despite Trump’s role as the president of the United States, which is assumably more influential than that of a Hollywood executive, the case of Harvey Weinstein is what finally set off the bomb of accusations this year.
