Over the past several years, countless liberals have harshly criticized President Donald Trump for his alleged mistreatment of women, chief among them Democrat New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.
But now Schneiderman faces allegations of his own far worse than what he had accused Trump of, allegations so terrible they prompted him to resign his powerful office mere hours after the story broke.
According to a bombshell expose from The New Yorker, no less than four women have come forward thus far — two anonymously and two on the record — to accuse the disgraced politician who portrayed himself as a defender of women of committing violent physical, psychological and sexual abuse against them.
Their stories range from verbal abuse to painful slaps and even choking, often while highly intoxicated.
This despicable behavior typically occurred in bed and all of the women made clear that they did not consent to any sort of “rough” sexual activity with him.
When the women would attempt to break off their relationships with him, fight back or speak out, he would threaten to kill them to maintain their silence.
Schneiderman initially explained to The New Yorker that the allegations were no big deal and mere “role-playing” and consensual activity, but as noted, the women asserted otherwise.
Rather presciently, then-businessman Trump cryptically tweeted in regard to the now-formerly powerful Democrat in Sept. 2013 with an allusion toward such disgusting sexual behavior, comparing him to disgraced N.Y. politicians Anthony Weiner and Elliot Spitzer.
Trump tweeted, “Weiner is gone, Spitzer is gone – next will be lightweight A.G. Eric Schneiderman. Is he a crook? Wait and see, worse than Spitzer or Weiner.”
It is widely known that Trump doesn’t drink, but he has always attended parties with the powerful elite in which others were drinking and gossiping, and no doubt has learned plenty of dark secrets along the way.
It would appear from that tweet and others around the same time that Trump was aware of Schneiderman’s violent and abusive behavior toward women.
That must make the eventual hypocritical fall of a powerful critic and rival all the more satisfying for him.
