Trump Accuser First Lobbied to be his Makeup Artist

Makeup artist or con artist? According to The Hill:

A New York cosmetics executive who publicly alleged Donald Trump sexually assaulted her in the 1990s repeatedly solicited the future president to become his campaign makeup artist and to pitch her new product line in the months before her story roiled the 2016 race, according to the woman and her contemporaneous emails.

“Hi Donald, you are doing a tremendous job of shaking things up in the United States. I am definitely on Team Trump as so many others are,” Jill Harth wrote the future president in an Oct. 1, 2015, email sent to him through his New York company’s headquarters.

“I can’t watch television without seeing you or hearing your name everywhere! It’s a good thing for sure but PLEASE let me do your makeup for a television interview, a debate, a photo session, anything!” Harth wrote.

“It kills me to see you looking too orange and with white circles under the eyes . . .

In another email seeking to meet Trump personally, Harth offered to be a campaign surrogate willing to tell voters how the future president “helped me with my self-confidence and all positive things about how he is with women.”

The emails use starkly different language than the words Harth used in both a withdrawn 1997 federal lawsuit and a series of late 2016 campaign interviews in which she accused Trump of sexually assaulting her more than two decades ago. Harth is one of 19 women who have reportedly accused Trump of sexual misconduct.

The article goes on to note that Harth’s business profited from the exposure she got as a Trump accuser.

So it seems Trump could have killed two birds with one stone by hiring her. He could have had one less sexual misconduct accuser, and he might have looked less orange.

  1. We don’t want to hear “sexual assault” unless criminal charges were filed with the police.
    Women who date fabulously wealthy men, then accuse them of some behavior that could be ignored with the right amount of cash or a nice job, are , well, we know what they are.
