Donald Trump has said that he doesn’t know “and/or has never met” several female accusers who spoke out before his election for the first time about alleged sexual misconduct.
Now that several lawmakers are demanding that the president resign, in part because they have gotten the Al Franken and John Conyers fiascos out of the way, the Democrats are pivoting from the failed Russian collusion investigation into opening up a new, albeit rehashed argument about Trump’s alleged sexual abuse of several women.
“Despite thousands of hours wasted and many millions of dollars spent, the Democrats have been unable to show any collusion with Russia — so now they are moving on to the false accusations and fabricated stories of women who I don’t know and/or have never met. FAKE NEWS!” Trump tweeted on Tuesday.
The Hill is reporting that newly uncovered footage shows Donald Trump with several of his female accusers:
People magazine published a photo later in the day showing Trump standing alongside Natasha Stoynoff, a former foreign correspondent for the magazine, while at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in 2005. People said that the photo was taken the same day that Stoynoff, in 2016, accused Trump of forcibly kissing her.
Another photo surfaced following Trump’s tweet Tuesday showing him with another accuser, Jill Harth. Harth, who did business with Trump and later dated him, last year accused him of groping her in the early 1990s. According to a New York Times column published last year, Harth filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against Trump in 1997, but withdrew it when settling a separate lawsuit with Trump.
The following is the reputed image:

However, one may notice from the photo above that it proves absolutely nothing about sexual misconduct. As you can see, no one knows what Trump’s doing with his hands, unlike disgraced Senator Al Franken, who is yet to officially resign.
Furthermore, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said that Trump was referring specifically to three women: Rachel Crooks, Samantha Holvey and Jessica Leeds, who led a press conference on Monday sparking a slew of Democratic lawmakers calling for an investigation and for President Trump to resign.
Let’s also not forget this blast from the past: Donald Trump nearly a year ago meeting with female accusers of former President Bill Clinton, who did not, as we all recall, resign.
