White House says women with harassment claims against Trump are liars
You know if you google "Donald Trump + Good News", you actually get more hits than if you google "Donald Trump + Bad News"?
We're as surprised as you are, because at this point it is almost mentally exhausting to have to write up another Trump / White House story, so close have we gotten to the point of emotional numbness, as another wave of "Oh Christ, what NOW?!" washes over us.
Last week, during a press conference in the White House Rose Garden, Trump was asked about the sexual harassment allegations being made against him, which he called fake news and responded:
"It’s made-up stuff, and it’s disgraceful, what happens, but that happens in the — that happens in the world of politics."
Then, earlier this week, Jacqueline Alemany of CBS News, asked White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders the following:
"Obviously, sexual harassment has been in the news. At least 16 women accused the president of sexually harassing them throughout the course of the campaign. Last week, during a press conference in the Rose Garden, the president called these accusations ‘fake news.’ Is the official White House position that all of these women are lying?"
To which Sanders replied:

"Yeah, we've been clear on that from the beginning, and the President has spoken on it."
So that's that then.
Sorry ladies, turns out you're all liars. No need to look into this any further.
