The Hillary campaign was able to find yet another sexual harassment accuser to distract from the main issues in this presidential race, and it got one Fox News host in big trouble!!
The woman is an “adult film actress” who accused Trump of propositioning her for $10,000 and of making unwanted advances on her and her friend.
Well, Fox News’ Brit Hume didn’t think much of her moralizing:
Woman who has sex on camera for $ says Trump propositioned her. "This is not acceptable behavior." Please. https://t.co/EpQ04PcuTO

Wow. But as you can imagine, a lot of people didn’t like that he was implying that it was OK to treat adult film actresses like prostitutes.
And they went to twitter to register their anger:
Good take, Brit. If you are a porn star you have no rights as a human being. I mean that's just science. https://t.co/2zZrVrYizb

How can prominent men in 2016 still get away with saying that sex work is an implicit "yes" to any sort of behavior? https://t.co/Yz1TD3ixKo

First off: That woman has a name, it is Jessica Drake, and yes that is completely unacceptable. Women are not cattle. You cannot purchase us https://t.co/0sYL5efVlO

OK, look he kinda has a point – she can’t act like she was totally shocked and insulted by the idea, given that it’s so close to what she does already. BUT… her accusations included her saying that he harassed her and her friend. So you can’t just dismiss her and say she deserved to be harassed because of her job.
Or maybe you CAN think that – as long as you work at Fox News!!
Here’s the interview of Jessica Drake’s accusations against Trump:
