Trump Mocks Female Accusers' Looks (Video)

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump mocked the looks of two of his female accusers on Oct. 13 and Oct. 14 (video below).

On Oct.14, Trump mocked Jessica Leeds, now 74 years old, at a rally in Greensboro, North Carolina, notes the Gothamist: "Believe me, she would not be my first choice, that I can tell you. Man, you don’t know, that would not be my first choice."

Leeds told The New York Times earlier this week that she was sitting next to Trump on a plane some 30 years ago when he lifted up the armrest between their seats, grabbed her breasts and attempted to put his hand up her skirt.

Trump also mocked Natasha Stoynoff (a People magazine writer who said that he assaulted her in 2005) during a rally in West Palm Beach, Florida, on Oct. 13 (video below): "Take a look. You take a look. Look at her. Look at her words. You tell me what you think. I don't think so. I don't think so."

According to the Gothamist, Trump brought up Stoynoff's looks again on Oct. 14 in North Carolina: "Check out her Facebook page, you'll understand."

At the same rally in North Carolina, a Trump supporter attacked a protester in a video (below) tweeted by Yahoo News writer Holly Bailey.

In the video, the supporter rushes the protester, puts his arms around the protester's throat, but is pushed away by a police officer.

Despite 10 women having come forward with allegations of sexual assault by Trump, he still has support among women.

Some of those women explained their reasons to BuzzFeed News at a recent rally in Cincinnati:

"If my husband didn't talk like [Trump's sexual assault remarks in 2005]. I'd think there was something wrong with him."

"He's for us. He wasn't thinking about public office back then. I'm a different person than I was 10 years ago!"

"That was 10 years ago, and he's a 70-year-old man now, so it's not going to be a problem. Look behind you, not now, but in a second -- that's my husband, and he's 70 years old, and let me tell you, it's not going to be a problem."

"If [People magazine writer Stoynoff] was that good of a journalist, she could've come forward and still got another job."

"Next time [Stoynoff] should record it, if she wants people to believe her."
