Vanessa Tyson has released a statement about her encounter with Justin Fairfax.
Warning: contains a graphic description of sexual violence.
I really just don’t know what to say at this point.
OK I’ll say this: being a rapist is about a thousand times worse than wearing blackface to a party 35 years ago, although the latter act is far from trivial of course. And somebody holding a high public office who says “fuck that bitch” when confronted with a charge of first degree sexual assault isn’t somebody who should be holding high public office, even if the charge should happen to be wholly false (which for what it’s worth I think is extremely improbable).
Also Donald Trump, serial sexual assaulter among many other things, is president of the United States and 40% of the population is totally OK with a serial sexual assaulter being president of the United States.
