The 2016 presidential race has been called many things. It’s been called controversial, unique, and many think that it could be a turning point, especially for the Republican Party and the fact that its nominee is so different than the norm.
Using the term “waterboarded” is new though, but that’s exactly what former Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer said is happening to presidential candidate Donald Trump.
Brewer said Trump is being “waterboarded” by his female accusers, and is lamenting the “oppression of Donald Trump from all of these women” accusing him of inappropriate sexual conduct.
Nearly a dozen women have publicly accused Trump of unwanted advances or sexual assault in the weeks since a 2005 recording emerged in which the former reality TV star boasted of kissing women and groping their genitals without their consent. The latest came on Saturday, when an adult film actress said the billionaire kissed her and two other women on the lips “without asking for permission” when they met him after a golf tournament in 2006.
Trump has denied all the allegations, and has vowed to sue all of his accusers.
Brewer has been a supporter of Trump, and insists that he is authentic and “tells it like it is.”
A couple of weeks ago, Brewer told KTAR News 92.3 FM’s Mac & Gaydos that Trump has always acted like “a gentleman” around her.
