As the polls clearly show Trump’s basket of deplorables isn’t big enough to win the presidency, he’s essentially spending his remaining days threatening lawsuits against his great many sexual assault accusers. What a scumbag.
“Every woman lied when they came forward to hurt my campaign,” Trump said during remarks in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. “Total fabrication. The events never happened. Never. All of these liars will be sued after the election is over.” Adding, “a simple phone call to major news outlets gets them wall-to-wall coverage with virtually no fact-checking ever.”
This coming from the man whose entire campaign strategy revolves around major news outlets devoting hours of coverage to every brainfart he makes.
Nevertheless, Trump may want to reconsider his litigious temper tantrums. Responding to Trump’s braggadocious threats of lawsuits, many prominent lawyers have said that if Trump carries out his promise, they will happily defend the women…for FREE.

And soon after Trump threatened to sue each and every one of the women themselves, Boutrous said that there were many other lawyers readily willing to defend them pro-Bono too.

One lawyer is taking the call:

We all know Trump will have to buy a luxury condo on Mars in order to escape the scorn of being handily beaten. But he may have to stick around a little longer in order to be held accountable for his sickening sexual assaults.
Thanks to these lawyers, perhaps more victims will feel confident in coming forward and getting justice.
