Washington Post Reporter Karen Attiah signaled a Donald Trump scandal on Monday afternoon claiming that Trump “hit on her.” (Karen Attiah is the Washington Post’s Opinions Deputy Digital Editor)
So I waited for hours to read Ms .Attiah [sic] tell the salacious story of Donald Trump’s advances. Did he proposition her, or touch her inappropriately?
As it turns out Trump’s big crime was saying she was beautiful. That was it. This is what she wrote at at the Washington Post:
As the meeting ended and we were walking out of the room, I thanked Trump for taking my question. He turned to me and said, “I really hope I answered your question,” and added casually with a smile, “Beautiful.” I was stunned. I didn’t say thank you, and I don’t think I smiled. He then walked out to meet with my Post colleagues briefly before heading to the elevator. I stayed in the conference room for a few minutes as it sunk in that the potential GOP nominee for president thought it was okay to comment on my appearance. Did he just say that?
Perhaps he thought that calling me beautiful would make me ignore the fact that he brazenly lied about his polling numbers among Hispanic voters.
