  Trump to Americans on Super Bowl Sunday: 'Stand for the National Anthem' President Trump on Sunday sent a Super Bowl message to Americans that called on them to stand during the national anthem. In a presidential message, Trump said that Americans "owe" the "greatest respect" to members of the armed forces, adding that their defense of the "American way of life" helps make the Super Bowl possible.

He called Zervos and other female accusers “liars.” Trump ’s lawyers have fought to keep the case from going to trial, dismissing it as The White House referred questions about Trump ’s whereabouts at the time to his private lawyer Marc Kasowitz, who did not respond to a request for comment.

Zervos, a former contestant on “The Apprentice,” accused Trump of sexually inappropriate conduct prior to the presidential elction.

Summer Zervos filed a defamation lawsuit a year ago in which she claimed Trump groped and sexually assaulted her. He called Zervos and other female accusers “liars.” Trump’s lawyers have fought to keep the case from going to trial,

dismissing it as “totally meritless” and arguing that a state court has no jurisdiction over a sitting president. A New York judge is expected to rule any day on whether it should proceed.

“Not the sound-bite version, but the real version.” The Trump accuser who refuses to go Why hadn’t she shouted at him, or quit her job, or pushed him away , or bit his lip? She blamed Trump for making her feel powerless.She blamed.

Zervos, a former contestant on Trump’s reality TV show, “The Apprentice,” is the only one of about a dozen women who accused Trump of sexual misconduct shortly before the 2016 presidential election to have brought legal action.

Her complaint details phone calls and meetings that could be used to verify — or refute — her allegations, and her attorneys could call other accusers to the stand to describe Trump’s behavior. Zervos declined to be interviewed.

Trump has denied Zervos’s account of an alleged December 2007 encounter at the Beverly Hills Hotel. “To be clear, I never met her at a hotel or greeted her inappropriately a decade ago,” he said when she made her accusation.

The White House referred questions about Trump’s whereabouts at the time to his private lawyer Marc Kasowitz, who did not respond to a request for comment. He has previously dismissed the claim as politically motivated.

In her complaint, Zervos said she asked to meet with Trump that month at Trump Tower in New York, seeing him as a “potential employer.”

Zervos claims Trump dubbed her his “OC Angel,” referring to her California home county, and invited her to meet him for dinner in Los Angeles. The suit details phone calls from Trump to make arrangements.

The complaint says Trump’s security guard escorted Zervos to a hotel bungalow, where Trump showed little interest in dining out.

Instead, the complaint alleges, he kissed and groped her, suggested they watch “telly-telly,” and led her to the bedroom where “he began to press his genitals against her.”

When Zervos rejected Trump, he became “all business,” she alleges. She said he ordered a club sandwich from room service, then doled out financial advice.

Jury in rugby rape trial visit home of Paddy Jackson where alleged crimes took place

  Jury in rugby rape trial visit home of Paddy Jackson where alleged crimes took place The jury in the trial of two rugby players accused of raping the same woman at an after-party in the home of one of the accused has visited the scene of the alleged crimes. Paddy Jackson (26) of Oakleigh Park, Belfast and Stuart Olding (24) from Ardenlee Street, Belfast are each charged with one count of rape in relation to the same woman at a property in south Belfast on June 28 2016. Stuart Olding Both deny the charges. Mr Jackson denies a further charge of sexual assault. Two other men are facing charges regarding the same incident.

Mr. Trump , who apparently saw Mr. Trudeau’s news conference on television aboard Air Force One, was clearly enraged. “It’s going to stop,” he said, “or we’ll stop trading with them. And that’s a very profitable answer, if we have to do it.” He added, “We’ re like the piggy bank that everybody’s robbing

[ The Trump accuser who refuses to go away ]. Attorneys for Trump have argued that the president cannot be sued in state court and that his comments were political opinion. They have decried Zervos’s lawsuit as politically motivated.

He suggested Zervos let her mortgage “go into default,” the complaint says: “He said that it was a mini version of what he does.”

They met briefly the next day at his Rancho Palos Verdes golf course, the complaint alleges. Soon after, Zervos claims, the general manager offered her a position at “half the salary” she was seeking.”

A job with the Trump Organization would have been a change from the challenges of her parents’ beach town restaurant work. Court records show they ran into financial problems when Zervos was a teenager.

“They went bankrupt at the same time that Donald Trump did,” Zervos told the Orange County Register in 2006 in an interview about her reality TV role. “He came out a little better than we did.”

In 2005, Zervos joined her brother, Shado, in purchasing a $900,000 house in a new development, according to property records.

That same year, on an overcast Saturday morning, Zervos answered NBC’s call for “a new group of a---kissing b-school, type A personalities to compete as part of The Apprentice 5.”

Dan Simon, then a data company salesman, said he met Zervos in line and that they were interviewed by show producer Mark Burnett, who asked provocative questions.

“Should prostitution be legalized?” Simon recalled Burnett asking. Burnett seemed to zero in on Zervos as she gave answers that Simon remembered being “liberal as liberal can be.”

Selection for the show did not guarantee a big payoff. Scott Salyers, the supervising casting producer, said contestants received modest stipends.

When the show began on the tarmac by Trump’s jet, Zervos joined a team assigned to sell Sam’s Club memberships.

Trump turned on her in a boardroom meeting when Zervos spoke up to defend her team leader.

“Why should you interrupt me when I’m knocking the hell out of him?” Trump demanded. “By interrupting me, what are you doing to yourself?”

“I’m being truthful,” Zervos said, “and I’ll always be truthful.”

“How stupid is that, right?” Trump asked.

What Happened to the 19 Women Who Accused Trump of Sexual Misconduct. But in recent weeks several of Trump ’s accusers have said that while they’ re happy sexual After Leeds went public, Trump mocked her at a campaign rally, suggesting she wasn’t attractive enough to sexually harass.

“You know what, Summer? You’re fired!” he said.

Zervos was the first contestant banished to a New Jersey apartment complex to wait until shooting ended. She then returned to Sunny’s.

According to her complaint, Zervos contacted Trump again in 2009, 2010 and 2016.

Her suit is not about fame, nor was her accusation politically motivated, her attorneys have said. She is asking for $2,914 in economic losses as well as unspecified emotional damages.

Zervos’s critics point to an email the Trump campaign posted, in which her cousin who worked at Sunny’s speculates that “Summer’s actions are nothing more than an attempt to regain the spotlight at Mr. Trump’s expense.” The cousin, John Barry, did not return phone calls.

The Zervos family’s struggles continued, according to public records. Property records indicate that Deutsche Bank initiated foreclosure proceedings in 2009 against Zervos and her brother. Sunny’s moved out of a downtown location in 2010, back to a more modest mall. Zervos’s father and brother did not respond to messages.

Her family and close friends refer inquiries to Gloria Allred, her attorney. “Summer and her family are not doing any interviews,” Allred wrote.

Some residents here who have known or worked with Zervos for years are following her confrontation with Trump. They say she often referred to her Trump connection after returning from the filming to work at Sunny’s, her family’s diner.

“She was a small-town girl, [and] all of a sudden people knew who she is,” recalled Amanda Hesser, a former restaurant server.

The Trump accuser who refuses to go away

  The Trump accuser who refuses to go away Summer Zervos is pressing her case against Trump in a New York court as the only one of about a dozen accusers to bring legal action.Zervos, a former contestant on Trump’s reality TV show, “The Apprentice,” is the only one of about a dozen women who accused Trump of sexual misconduct shortly before the 2016 presidential election to have brought legal action. Her complaint details phone calls and meetings that could be used to verify — or refute — her allegations, and her attorneys could call other accusers to the stand to describe Trump’s behavior. Zervos declined to be interviewed.

Some 20 years ago, she claims, when she met Donald Trump for the first and only time, he grabbed her, went for a kiss, and grew angry with her as she twisted away . This week, Trump called some of the women who have accused him “horrible, horrible liars”.

This morning, three of the women who accused Trump of unwanted advances stepped forward to remind us that they are still here. They — and we — are going to need it. And all this is why, even as Trump ’s accusers continue to speak out, it’s highly unlikely they will get the result they want.
