GOP NOMINEE DROPS BOMBSHELL PRIOR TO SECOND DEBATE …
Less than two hours before he took the stage to debate Hillary Clinton, GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump held a press conference with three women who have previously accused Clinton’s husband, former president Bill Clinton, of making unwanted sexual advances against them.
Trump appeared at a hastily-arranged, unscripted event with Paula Jones, Kathleen Willey and Juanita Broaddrick – three women who not only accused Bill Clinton of sexually assaulting them, but also accused Hillary Clinton of attacking and intimidating them in an effort to protect him politically.
“Actions speak louder than words,” Broaddrick said. “Mr. Trump may have said some bad words but Bill Clinton raped me and Hillary Clinton threatened me. I don’t think there’s any comparison.”
Also joining Trump at the press event? Kathy Shelton – a rape victim whose accuser was represented by Hillary Clinton.
“Hillary put me through something that you would never put a 12 year old through,” Shelton said. “And she says she’s for women and children.”

“These four very courageous women have asked to be here and it was our honor to help them,” Trump said.
Trump’s bombshell came just two days after a leaked audio and video clip was published by The Washington Post in which the GOP nominee – in 2005 – used graphic and at times quite demeaning language toward women.
The clip drew swift and severe condemnation of Trump from up and down the political spectrum, including GOP chairman Reince Priebus and 2012 “Republican” nominee Mitt Romney.
