Do you remember Rachel Crooks? You should.
In 2016, Crooks accused Donald Trump of forcing himself on her and kissing her. She spoke with CNN on Monday and told them how she and other accusers feel “forgotten” ever since Trump won the election.
Crooks relived the trauma as she explained it to CNN host Alisyn Camerota. She went on to describe how Trump forcefully kissed her without her permission when she encountered him in 2005. She had been working at Bayrock Group at the time.
Trump made her feel utterly powerless in the way he took whatever he wanted. It was a traumatic experience Crooks said took years to move past. “[I was] feeling so deflated he thought I was so insignificant that he could do that,” she admitted.
Worst of all, however, is how little people are talking about it. Crooks said she’s baffled that, in the midst of discussion about men like Kevin Spacey and Harvey Weinstein being called out for sexual assault, hardly anyone cares to address the elephant in the White House.
“I do feel forgotten. You can’t help but wonder why people aren’t talking about Trump and the people who came forward for him… why is he immune to this? So it’s been very frustrating.”
