Peerless and Noble Reader! We got 32 hours! What are your plans?
You're a hero E.Jean, thank you for your courage and strength.
For anyone unfamiliar with this spectacular mic drop moment:
Tacopina: Even though you understood you were in the middle of this supposed battle, you never screamed at Donald Trump or screamed for help?
E. Jean: I’m not a screamer. Here is the thing. I was too much in a panic to scream. I was fighting.
Tacopina: When you’re fighting and being sexually assaulted and raped, because you are not a screamer, as you describe it, you wouldn’t scream?
E. Jean: I’m not a screamer. You can’t beat up on me for not screaming.
Tacopina: I’m not beating up on you. I’m asking you questions, Ms. Carroll.
E. Jean: No. Women who come forward, one of the reasons they don’t come forward is because they are always asked why didn’t you scream. Some women scream. Some women don’t … Why didn’t you scream, E. Jean? Why didn’t you scream? … You better have a good excuse why you didn’t scream. Because if you didn’t scream, you weren’t raped. I’m telling you, he raped me, whether I screamed or not!
Hello you brave, wonderful, triumph of a human being. We’ll be walking our dog and dreaming of sunnier weather to come. May you feel the strength of my daughter and I and all of us who love and support you.
i sit and wait for the weekend to be over. i watch movies, try to read and look at art on here. I am 75 yo, retired and have lupus. it's not a death sentence but it's not great. i can't walk and my spouse of 17 yrs. fled. i'm afraid to fly anywhere. I have enough money not to be scared and that is GREAT!!! my friends are far away. i do talk with my bestie every weekend for at lease 2 hrs. It may sound trite, but my two best friends here died. Ugh. sometimes i'm well enough to drive. i'm happier with a bottle of prosecco but that's not too healthy. ok. this is lame. i'm not dying and i live in a beautiful home and it's gorgeous outdoors and i'm ok now. it's friday. my beautiful and kind beyond belief aide is coming and i have a very sweet doggy. he can't walk either. lololol. have a good one. Love, to e.jean. xoxocmm
I’m sharing your brilliant summation about screaming and rape with everyone I know.
My new boyfriend, in a grand romantic gesture, is coming over tomorrow with an armful of lilacs picked for me from his garden... and a squeegee, to clean my windows.
I kowtow to you, E Jean! The Wonder Woman of our time. The Queen of the Conflab.
I am in awe of your testimony, your courage, your calm and strong resistance to all attempts to deny reality, and the way you stood up against the thuggish misogyny, and spoke for every woman everywhere.
Now for this weekend? All plans have changed since the lower Rockies just received a big dump of snow today!! So my garden party is canceled, and I will indulge in pampering and beauty treatments instead.
And I will be toasting EJC, the hero of us all, throughout the weekend 💐🥂
Spending at least 30 of the 32 just admiring the hell out of you, warrior goddess
As a pastor my weekends are usually work days. But would like to say I pray for you every day and am thankful for your courage and bravery to face the lion and tell your story. You are strong, you are beautiful, and you are not standing there alone. God is standing beside you and She is smiling. The rest of us are there in spirit.
Just want to comment on how I've been thinking of you all day every day this week. Sending you all the strength and love I can muster. You are an icon. I have been reading your column since the 80s (And my daughter started in the 2010s) and you are truly the person I thought you always were - strong, savage, fierce, beautiful, good and righteous. I'm so sorry this happened to you and that you have to go through this. And I adore you.
I’m going to go see Trae Crowder, the redneck liberal, in Decatur, AL, tonight. Next week I’m going to see Chelsea Handler in Huntsville, AL. I love supporting smart comedians who piss off white, entitled misogynists. 😂
E. Jean, we're all out here cheering you on. Stay strong, you're leading the way for all women.
I'm writing a SNL script on how Joe Tacopina tries to get paid for his services from Donald Trump
I will skip the part about the Trump poppet doll and just say: You are an incredible person, and I am grateful--and I am far from the only one. I wrote something about you. [s] https://www.politisage.com/p/the-unprecendented-courage-of-e-jean
Probably writing an article about the bad BITCH E.Jean Carroll! You go girl! You are an inspiration and role model for so many!
You are simply amazing and one of the strongest women I have seen!
As a reporter, I must remain neutral and report the facts. The fact is... you are one bad BITCH and I am so proud of you!
Off topic. Your hair looks amazing!
This neutral reporter will see you at the courthouse.
Again. You are AMAZING!!
I’m going to take my granddaughter, Ingrid, to the tulip festival and ride in a hot air balloon. Acres and acres of color with beautiful Mt. Hood in the background.
