The allegation, according to the New York Daily News, stems from the book The Last Tycoon: The Many Lives of Donald J. Trump by Harry Hurt III.<br />\n The News wrote: &ldquo;Hurt&rsquo;s 1993 book ... cited a divorce deposition, in which Ivana Trump claimed her then-husband sexually attacked her. ... In a rage, Trump allegedly tore out clumps of his wife&rsquo;s hair, the book claimed, and ripped off her clothes and assaulted her. &lsquo;According to versions she repeats to some of her closest confidantes, &lsquo;he raped me.&rsquo; ...<br />\n &ldquo;Ivana Trump herself, in a statement that ended up on the first page of the book, admitted to there having been an ugly night between herself and Trump in 1989, but said she hadn&rsquo;t used the word &lsquo;rape&rsquo; in her deposition literally.&rdquo;<br />\n Ivana Trump now says, &ldquo;The story is totally without merit.&rdquo; She also publically supports her ex for president, describing herself and Trump as &ldquo;the best of friends,&rdquo; adding, &ldquo;He would make an incredible president.&rdquo;<br />\n Meanwhile, the cover of the current issue of New York Magazine shows pictures of 35 women who have accused Bill Cosby of rape, attempted rape or sexual abuse. In a recently unsealed deposition in relation to a lawsuit filed against Cosby by another alleged rape victim, Cosby admits giving Quaaludes to women he wanted to have sex with.<br />\n This raises a question: Why does Bill Clinton continue to get a pass? Clinton was, after all, accused of rape by Juanita Broaddrick. Broaddrick, on Dateline NBC, claimed that Clinton, then-Arkansas attorney general and gubernatorial candidate, raped her: &ldquo;I first pushed him away. I just told him &lsquo;no.&rsquo; ... He tries to kiss me again. He starts biting on my lip. ... And then he forced me down on the bed. I just was very frightened. I tried to get away from him. I told him &lsquo;no.&rsquo; ... He wouldn&rsquo;t listen to me.&rdquo;<br />\n She further alleges that Hillary Clinton, shortly after the alleged rape, verbally intimidated her, implying that Broaddrick better keep her mouth shut &mdash; or else. At a political event two weeks later, Broaddrick claims that Hillary approached her: &ldquo;She came over to me, took ahold of my hand and said, &lsquo;I&rsquo;ve heard so much about you and I&rsquo;ve been dying to meet you. ... I just want you to know how much that Bill and I appreciate what you do for him.&rsquo; ...<br />\n &ldquo;This woman, this little, soft-spoken &mdash; pardon me for the phrase &mdash; dowdy woman that would seem very unassertive, took ahold of my hand and squeezed it and said, &lsquo;Do you understand? Everything that you do.&rsquo; I could have passed out at that moment and I got my hand from hers and I left. ... She was just holding onto my hand. Because I had started to turn away from her and she held onto my hand and she said, &lsquo;Do you understand? Everything that you do,&rsquo; I mean, cold chills went up my spine. That&rsquo;s the first time I became afraid of that woman.&rdquo;</p>\n<p> THE LATE British left-wing writer Christopher Hitchens, in No One Left to Lie To, claimed that three women have made &ldquo;plausible&rdquo; allegations of rape by Bill Clinton. He gave no further details &mdash; and the media have been relentlessly indifferent.<br />\n This double standard reached its nadir when Kathleen Willey, a former campaign aide, described on 60 Minutes an alleged sexual battery committed by Clinton in the Oval Office. Willey, a Clinton campaign volunteer, says that Clinton took her hand and placed it on his aroused genitalia: &ldquo;He touched my breasts with his hand ... and then he whispered ... &lsquo;I&rsquo;ve wanted to do this ever since I laid eyes on you.&rsquo; ... He took my hand, and he put it ... on his genitals.&rdquo; Willey said she managed to push him away.<br />\n Feminist Gloria Steinem, right after Willey&rsquo;s appearance, wrote a piece for the New York Times. Clinton, she said, did nothing wrong. &ldquo;Even if (Willey&rsquo;s) accusation are true,&rdquo; Steinem wrote, Clinton is &ldquo;not guilty of sexual harassment.&rdquo; Why? Well, Steinem wrote, &ldquo;(Willey) pushed him away, she said, and it never happened again. In other words, President Clinton took &lsquo;no&rsquo; for an answer.&rdquo;<br />\n The late Barbara Olson, in Hell To Pay, describes Hillary Clinton as the ringleader behind the &ldquo;nuts or sluts&rdquo; strategy employed to malign the various women who alleged having had an affair with Bill. Hitchens&rsquo; book makes a similar claim.<br />\n But as to Broaddrick&rsquo;s allegation, apparently only one national reporter, Sam Donaldson, ever asked Bill Clinton about the charge. To Donaldson&rsquo;s question, Clinton said, in effect, talk to my lawyer. As to Hillary, it does not appear that a reporter has ever asked her about Broaddrick&rsquo;s allegation.</p>\n<p> BILL COSBY is not an ex-president, and his wife is not running to become president.
