Trump’s ‘Proof’ That He Did Not Grope A Woman In 1980 Is A Former Pimp With An ‘Excellent Memory’


Donald Trump claims he has proof that a woman accusing him of groping her on an airplane is a liar. What is this proof? A witness. And let me tell you, this “witness” is quite a doozy.

Jessica Leeds says that three decades ago she was seated next to Trump during a flight when he “grabbed her breasts and attempted to reach up her skirt.” She told the New York Times that “he was like an octopus” and she eventually had to flee to the back of the plane to escape him.

Now, the New York Post reports that Anthony Gilberthorpe, a British man with a history of pimping out children, has come forward to serve as Trump’s star witness.

“The man says he was sitting across from the accuser and contacted the Trump campaign because he was incensed by her account — which is at odds with what he witnessed.”

“‘I have only met this accuser once and frankly cannot imagine why she is seeking to make out that Trump made sexual advances on her. Not only did he not do so (and I was present at all times) but it was she that was the one being flirtatious,’ Anthony Gilberthorpe said in a note provided to The Post by the Trump campaign.”

Gilberthorpe said it was Leeds who was flirting with Trump and that she was actually “trying too hard.” He even claims that she confessed to him, a man she had never met before, that she wanted to “marry” Trump — another man she had never met before.

Gilberthorpe would have been about 18 years old at the time and according to the Post, “has no evidence to back up his claim — just his self-described excellent memory.”

So, just who is this upstanding citizen proclaiming Trump’s innocence? Well, in July of 2014, the U.K. Mirror reported that Gilberthorpe had been pimping out little boys to politicians:

“Senior Tory cabinet ministers were supplied with underage boys for sex parties, it is sensationally claimed.”

“Former Conservative activist Anthony Gilberthorpe said he told Margaret Thatcher 25 years ago about what he had witnessed and gave her names of those involved.”

“His allegations that he saw top Tories having sex with boys comes after David Cameron launched a Government inquiry into claims of a cover-up.”

“Anthony, 52, said: ‘I am prepared to speak to the inquiry. I believe I am a key witness.'”

“Trawling seedy streets during a Tory conference, Gilberthorpe says he was asked to find underage rent boys for a private sex party at a top hotel.”

Talking Points Memo reports that Gilberthorpe could come up with teenage girls for the right price too.

“Gilberthorpe was also the alleged tipster behind a sex scandal that led to the downfall of conservative British parliamentarian Piers Merchant’s career. Merchant, after he resigned, accused Gilberthorpe of setting up his affair with a 17-year-old hostess and leaking news of it to the Sunday Mirror, a British tabloid, in exchange for £25,000.”

In an even more surreal turn of events, Gilberthorpe is also suspected of lying about many of the criminal and unethical activities he had bragged about over the years. In one astounding example, he was accused of “leaking” the rumor that he himself had AIDS only to then turn around and sue the newspaper he leaked it to for libel.

Gilberthorpe’s past hardly makes him the person you would want to drag out to defend accusations of sexual assault. But I guess at this point the Trump campaign figures “Screw it, what do we really have left to lose?”
