There is a public Facebook page for Jessica Leeds, one of the first women to go public with allegations that Donald Trump sexually assaulted her. On the 13th, a post accredited to Ms. Leeds was published on the page: “I am thinking about making a foundation for abuse victims. We need to stick together!” A friend of mine shared that post with me, so I clicked the link to view the entire page. What I read chilled me. The hate, the misogyny, the threats, and the awful names, all being aimed at Jessica Leeds and the other women who have broken their silence.
Many of these comments are from women who support Donald Trump. Women who believe every single accusation slung at Bill Clinton, but shame the women accusing Donald Trump. Women who have been photographed wearing shirts upon which they have written their hope that Donald Trump grabs their pussy, proving they have no understand of sexual assault. It’s not the word, it was never the word, it’s the fact that over and over again, Donald Trump has proven he is a serial sexual predator.
The following comments were copied directly from the public Facebook page linked here. There is no way to know if this page was started by Jessica Leeds, or if it’s simply a public page with her name attached. But the Trump supporters posting their hate, their anger, their violence, and their misogyny believe it is.
The comments being left are disturbing, bitter, hateful, poorly spelled, and sometimes violent. Please note: Some of these comments may be triggering for some of our readers.

Larry Thomas You are such a skank from Hell. Use your self for Hillary. How much did she pay you. Your life is never the same. Enjoy hell. You are just like a paid prositute. You are a whore. Enjoy the rest of your short life. Fate work in mysterious ways.
These are Donald Trump supporters. Men and women who believe every accusation made against Bill Clinton, which somehow means Hillary Clinton shouldn’t be president, but call a woman accusing Donald Trump of sexual assault names like “cunt,” “bitch,” ugly,” and “whore.” They suggest she be shot. That she’s is being paid, or bribed. That by waiting, she is somehow not being honest.
I waited over twenty years to tell anyone I had been raped. I have friends who are still working on breaking their silence. And frankly, if the comments above from Trump supporters are just a sample of what survivors receive when they go public, why would anyone ever speak out? Lou Dobbs Tweeted Ms. Leeds’ personal information to all his followers. Another accuser is considering leaving the country because she no longer feels safe. Thousands of Trump supporters are spewing hate and violence at women who claim to have been assaulted by Donald Trump.
This is what those supporters really feel, and this is why they are voting for Donald Trump. He has energized their hate, their need to demean, insult, and attack anyone who does not support Trump, and he has given them permission to be monstrous and repugnant. He has touched the darkest part of their souls.
