The gospel of sexual misconduct according to Donald J. Trump, who wields the power inherent to the 45th president and is sometimes confused with a real president is very simple.
In a nutshell, the gospel of sexual harassment according to Trump goes something like this:
If you are accused of sexual misconduct of any kind or with any age group totally deny it. If you are accused of sexual harassment whatever you do, do not admit it, even if you did it, lie and say that you did not do it.
No one will hold you to the truth. You will get a pass. If you are a Republican office seeker, you can guarantee yourself victory by calling any woman bringing such a scandalous charge against you a flat out liar. Why else would a God-fearing woman level such an accusation against a man, but for the fact, that she is a diabolical liar seeking to bring down a powerful man.
Telling the truth in such a situation as this is the kiss of death to any man rightly or wrongly accused of sexual harassment. If you tell the truth and say you did it, then you deserve to lose your job and suffer public humiliation. If a man admits he engaged in sexual misconduct, the woman is to believed. The only time that you can believe that the woman is telling the truth is when the man does not follow the Trump Code for weaseling out of a sexual misconduct allegation.
However, on the other hand, if a man denies committing sexual misconduct, the woman bringing the allegation is not to be believed.
Moreover, if you are a Republican and are accused of sexual misconduct behind closed doors, totally denying the charge brings you fame, fortune and political power.
Any man who fails to follow the Trump Code for sexual misconduct did not have the moxie to pull off an impremissive contact with the alleging female in the first place and should be summarily flogged in public to bring cover to the “he-men” who know how to lie in the face of truth.
This is the sexual misconduct gospel according to Trump, govern yourselves accordingly.
